Have you ever come across a successful business or invention and thought, “What? that was my idea! I knew I should’ve done that.”
Or perhaps ran into a guy you once knew, who now has a great career and marriage, and instantly regretted that you didn’t talk to him when you had the chance?
Opportunities and ideas are energy.
They are not created accidentally, they happen because ‘things’ in the world are aligned to bring them to fruition. Once this perfect idea is out there, it is then pulled toward the person that is aligned with it! Want to guess what happens next? YOU happen. You make a choice whether to engage or allow it to come into your life. When your decision is “no thank you”, it doesn’t just dissipate. This perfect inspiration? Hell no, it seeks someone else in alignment and you, my friend, have just missed out.
When Opportunity knocks…
Having danced professionally for many years, I’ve watched directors in rehearsal choose dancers for solos or leads in choreography. In this time, I’ve witnessed 4 main “ways of being” when it comes to opportunity:
One who, for whatever reason, is uninterested
One who wants it, but is scared stiff of being picked because they are insecure about their ability or experience
One who is cocky and therefore not growing, “I’ve done it before, could do it in my sleep…”
Who does the director choose? #4: The one who has talent but more importantly, is eager and ready to either fall on their face or light the stage on fire!
I’m giving you a tool.
Don’t think you get a pass because you aren’t a dancer! Insert your next level or dream.. your house, career, passport, book, spouse, etc!
Think about the last few times an opportunity, inspiration or idea (that felt right) came your way. Did you show up as number 1, 2, 3, or 4? What was the result? If an opportunity to move forward in your vision presented itself, how would you love to show up and what shift do you need to make in order to be chosen?
Today, I’m the director and I choose you! Close your eyes and see the spotlight. It’s time for you to dance your dream!
As I write this, the Golden State Warriors are balling in their first NBA Finals game in 40 years.
Are you kidding me? That is what I call a dream realized! Even if you aren’t a basketball or Warriors fan, we can applaud the manifestation of that 40 year vision.
Speaking of working toward dreams, I am so grateful and proud of everyone who did their Dreamwork! I received so many emails and comments about the various ways people used the Elevate tool in the video last week. I hope you are inspired and ready to do more because I have another piece of Dreamwork ready and waiting for you 🙂 Check out the video:
Dreamwork – Gratitude on HIGH!
Here’s what I’d love you to do:
Choose a time of day to record your Gratitude on HIGH: morning, noon or night
Decide whether you will record it through writing, audio recording or speaking it aloud to another person.
Answer these 3 questions: What in my past am I thankful for and why (could be yesterday or a decade ago)?
What am I thankful for RIGHT NOW in this moment and why (get present)?
What am I thankful for that I or someone else has done that will effect my future and why (what actions, attitude shifts, world happenings)?
ELEVATE your gratitude for 3 days
Leave a comment letting me know how it went!
So good people, there is no need to wait 40 years. It’s time. Workshop details and tickets coming soon. Don’t forget to share with friends and please leave a comment below or on my new Facebook page. xoxo
Thank you for clicking, opening or otherwise finding yourself reading this post, I’m glad you’re here 🙂
Is it just me or is anyone else surprised that we’re almost halfway through 2015? Thinking about these last 5 months conjures a slideshow of an abundant flow for my family. I must admit, I am inspired! This has led to the launching of this blog, a workshop in June (details coming soon) and a video series. But more importantly, I’ve been busy designing ways for YOU to raise your vision to the next level, make your dream something you wake up to or to simply begin creating a passion-filled life! Check out the video:
Here’s what I’d love you to do:
Take a few moments out of your day, it can be as little as 3-5 minutes
Find a quiet space without distractions (i.e. your phone, kids or coworkers)
Close your eyes and imagine your life as it is right now but: ELEVATED
Leave a comment below with your feedback
Don’t get bogged down with huge goals and what your reality “should” be (sigh, more on that later). Pick an aspect of your life and imagine what it looks like right now.. but elevated! What would that part of your life, taken to a new level, look like for you? Watch the video above for more details
Right now, an elevated life for me means having a platform that empowers my community to design a life they love; One with more purpose, passion and joy 🙂 So please share with friends and guess what, we’re juuust getting started. Now do your Dreamwork and don’t forget to leave me a comment!
