Dreaming your way to Success – I think not!
Those of you who know me will know for sure that I am a doing girl; I am not much into thinking and dreaming and wishing… at least I thought I wasn’t.
The other day I was sat in the sun thinking about me, my business, my life and what I really want to do and where I really want to be going and suddenly out of the blue it hit me; the thing I am supposed to do. It hit me so hard I was shaking and crying, and those of you who know me will know that crying, other than at sad movies, is not my thing. This thing is exciting and bold and brave and amazing and quite a long way from what I do at the moment, or at least it feels it. The big, bold brave part of me was shocked at the idea and the little, scared part of me said….. how on earth am I going to do this? What was I going to do next? How would this ever work? I don’t know what I am talking about, blah, blah, blah.
Then something interesting happened; a whole week in my diary became clear – out of the blue clear. It had to be a sign!
So I decided to stop dilly-dallying and wishing and praying and hoping that this would all come right and come together; I decided just for a week to live as if the dream, the thing, the future was already happening… and I did. For that week I did whatever I felt led to do, read whatever I felt I wanted to, wrote whatever I wanted to, in fact just did whatever I wanted to, which felt in line with that future, and it was great.
I learnt a lot about the new direction I want to go in, met some super-cool people in said new direction and untangled the mess in my head about how it would fit in my business. Got super-clear about what needed to go and stay and how I needed to be for this to happen and most importantly, knew what I needed to do next.
I learnt that what I do a lot is actually wishful thinking. I think about where I want to be and then get annoyed with where I am because it is not there. When we wishfully do rather than wishfully think we get clear, we find ways forward and most important we get less annoyed with where we are because it feels less permanent. So from now on, my week will contain times for wishful doing. Each day if I can manage it, because it is super-cool awesome and all sorts of special.
So my question to you is what would wishful doing look like to you? What can you do weekly, monthly, daily to get some wishful doing into your day?
I love wishes and I love helping them come true.
Go and wishful do all over yourself 🙂
