We all digest information in different ways, so I’m sharing about how the universe recently magnified my imagination, plus my 5 steps for consistency in writing (see below) and via this short video as well. Enjoy!
Recently I returned from a week away in Italy that far exceeded anything my imagination had ever thought possible for a holiday. It came about because my daughter wanted us to come and see her and meet her new boyfriend.
At the time when she contacted me to ask if we’d come, I was super busy. So, I asked her to talk with her dad and make all the arrangements, and I would block out the time in my calendar to fit in with whatever dates they agreed between them.
I’m sure I’m not the only one that passes the buck of making all the arrangements, sometimes to avoid making a decision or stopping what you’re doing?!
All I did in the run up to the holiday was look at some photos of the house. Friends would ask me where we were going and the only thing I could tell them was Italy somewhere and that I was looking forward to seeing my daughter and having some family time. Other than that, and packing a case, I was head down working until the morning we left.
Before we arrived in Italy, I’d created a story in my mind that we’d be staying in the middle of nowhere and I was really ok with that idea because we were there to have family time.
Well, let me tell you, my story couldn’t have been further from the truth!
My mind was blown
Because of my lack of involvement in any of the arrangements, little did I know that my daughter had booked a beautiful villa with 180-degree sea views of the Italian Riviera – I kid you not!! I was absolutely blown away by how jaw droppingly beautiful and exquisite the area was.
We spent time lunching in Portofino. We ate gelato and hiked in Cinque Terre and lay on the beaches along the coast, and we shopped and ate delicious pizza.
It was heaven on earth and more magical than I ever imagined it could be. When I reflected on that, I realised that I still carried so many limiting beliefs about how big and wonderful life could be. I saw that the Universe has so much more available and ready to deliver to me than I allow myself to imagine.
Do you do that? Do you keep things small and limit your imagination? And do you do that in your business as well?
Limiting your imagination
It’s so common that when we set goals for ourselves, we make them limited and small. Yet the Universe is ready to help us achieve and receive so much more.
As we start to approach the second half of the year (seriously, where has the time gone!) I encourage you to reflect on what’s worked for these last 6-months and decide on your plans for the final 6-months of 2021.
I wholeheartedly encourage you to really use your imagination and think BIG! Think bigger than you’ve ever thought before. What do you want your life and business to look like 6-months from now? Do you want it to be the same or wildly different?
Now is a great time to revisit your vision board and see what goals are yet to become your reality. Oh, by the way, the Amalfi coast was on my vision board! You need to realise that there’s so much power in your imagination and what you ask for. When you set your intentions, you’re giving the Universe crystal clear instructions on what to deliver for you.
To help you create consistency with building the life and business of your dreams, here are 5 steps that I recommend for amazing results…
Step 1 – Keep your eye on your why!
It’s so important to have a clear vision of what you want and why you want it. What are you wanting to build? Why do you want to save money? Write down everything you want and then for each have a why that’s so compelling that it moves you daily into action.
Step 2 – Remember less is more
I’m sorry if I’m bursting your bubble but multitasking is a myth! The most effective way for all of us to achieve our goals is to focus on one thing at a time. Doing too much will only overwhelm you, so learn to say no, ask for help or delegate.
Step 3 – Schedule it
As the great Steven Covey says, “The key is not to prioritise what’s on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities.” Your what and why are your priorities, so pick specific days and times that you’re going to dedicate to working on them and put them into your schedule. Don’t let your goals and dreams just drift, they deserve more than that.
Step 4 – Ignore the fear
The voices in your head are nothing but a collection of thoughts that have no power over you unless you give it to them. We all have those intrusive thoughts – I’m too tired, I’m overwhelmed, I don’t know how to start! Remember, the thoughts you hold on to and give life to become your actions, so exercise your power to choose the thoughts that are aligned with your what and whys and who you really want to be.
Step 5 – It’s not an all or nothing thing
Sometimes you just need to back up a little and stop giving yourself a hard time. Some days we get in the flow and take massive action and steps forward, and other days not so much. Just be kind to yourself and recognise that you’re on a journey, and no journey worth taking is ever always plain sailing. There are going to be twists and turns but remember, success doesn’t come from what you do occasionally, it comes from what you do consistently.
Whatever happens the Universe has always got your back. But first you must open your mind and expand your dreams, and then watch it deliver you so much more than you could ever have imagined.
