It’s that Silly Season
Well who could believe that Christmas is just about upon us again? This year it has really snuck up on me. I keep thinking I have plenty of time for shopping and the later it gets, the longer I am in the shops, the more money I spend. Sound familiar.
Here in Melbourne, we have shopping centres open for 72 hours straight leading to Christmas Day. It is amazing how many people you find shopping at three o’clock in the morning. If you do not intend a parking spot, be prepared to wait just as long as in the day time.
Aside from the commercialism of this festive season, it is also a time to reflect and see if you have accomplished what you set out to at the start of the year. I am not talking about New Year’s resolutions as I do not know of anyone who has stuck by any of their resolutions. I am talking about the goals you set and which ones you have achieved.
Goal setting is about having a direction to follow so you know where you are headed. It is about taking baby steps and then putting it all together to get to the result you desire. Not having any desire is like blindfolding an archer and telling him to shoot his arrow. He does not know where to aim for, therefore, no direction.
Do this little exercise right now. Get a pen and paper, time yourself for one minute and write down the things you want. Think back to when you were a child. There was no limit then so there are no limits now. Did you want ten swimming pools with a water slide that connected them all up? Did you want to fly in a space ship? Did you want to travel to all the exotic locations in the world? These are not your goals but things that you want!! Whatever you do not write down you do not get. Go now!
Here’s some writing music for you mmmm mmmmmm mmmm!
How did you go? Interesting exercise isn’t it. When I first was asked to do this I kept repeating myself. Now, I can write for ages with all the different things I want.
Put it out there and ask for it. Believe you will receive and amazing things happen when you do this. You know that size does not matter, whether it is a bunch of flowers or a luxury car. How you will get them does not matter either. We are so conditioned to not be open to receiving what we want that this is what holds most of us back. It takes practice. Just be grateful that you already have the thing that you want.
This wonderful DVD “The Secret” explains this in more detail than I ever could.
Yours in Prosperity
