“The important thing is not being afraid to take a chance. Remember, the greatest failure is to not try. Once you find something you love to do, be the best at doing it.” -Debbi Fields
There are times we plateau in life doing things because we feel like we must, and it’s not who we are. We value society’s opinion pushing us to this “going through the motions” phase. As much as we resist, demand to change and flow because being stagnant is robbing you of your happiness. Think, when water is at a stand still it first becomes hazed, then after a few weeks it’s murky, and even though you are still able to get into it, your cautious because you can’t see the bottom. When that water is flowing constantly, it becomes crystal clear and we jump without second guessing. Now Newton’s first law of motions says “An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.” So if we are made up of about 60% water flowing will keep us crystal clear, and if we are objects this constant flow it moves us in the direction we want. That sluggish or unbalance behavior is because we are not self aware of our desires. Make the conscious decision to prioritize yourself, flowing in the direction you want move towards, AND fulfilling your dreams.
MAKE THAT JUMP, find a new HEALTHY thrill to life. Think of something you have always wanted to do, a skill you have always wanted to learn, or that business you have always wanted to start, just do it. We start life trying to make our families happy, then our friends, and finally our spouse and children until we have had enough failures from making everyone pleased except you. If catering to other’s opinion hasn’t work out why not try something you like instead! There is nothing like the dedication you have when you are doing something not only new, but that you love to do. When we have something that captures our attention in the right way we are uplifted having something to look forward to in life. Ask yourself what are you afraid of? Is it they way people will judge you or that you will fail? Both are no longer options to hesitate your flow. If you are at rest you will stay are rest, if you are in motion you will stay in motion until an unbalance force shakes you. If you are in motion and also balanced in Self then you are unstoppable.
The Beginning Is Not The End
The hard part is staying in that motion. We get to a point where we see no immediate progress or results, frustrated that the end of our journey isn’t the beginning. We start to lose focus comparing ourselves to someone else’s progress, rather than our yesterday. This is the Ego and you must shut it up! During this time stay in motion perfecting every detail by brainstorming new ways to improve your flow. Take classes , look on Youtube, or reach out to people with the same interest. This will give you the opportunity to find a mentor to guide you, teaching you the basis, and give you the advice you need. This is also the perfect time to make mistakes then reevaluate, not to beat yourself down, but on how you can improve. Turn those mistakes into lessons you can pass on to the next mended seeker. When you are in the phase of perfecting your craft you have the power to take advantage of it or let it take advantage of you.
Thoughts Are Reality
Albert Einstein said that “The most important decision we make is whether we believe we live in a friendly or hostile universe.” This one of my favorite quotes and it tells us we have so much power in our thoughts. The decision is so important about what we believe because that shapes our reality. There will be distractions and suffering along the way, but we have to remember that we have an important decision. Will it drive you or starve you? After all your hard work getting a running start, then your dedication through the dormant phase are you going to give up? If you failed a class in college do you throw the whole college away? No you retake the course and you focus because you lost not only money, but time. You get more tutors or join a study group, this time you do something different. When you perfect your dream and step out of your comfort zone please realize that our universe is friendly. That there are genuine people who will help you, surround yourself with them. You graduate and then take all the hard work, dedication, and references from those good people to apply. You might not get the job/outcome you want or one right away, but when the moment is right and if you believe and are ready your dreams become the reality.

When we are on the path to Self you are also finding your purpose. Only you can achieve this because it’s yours. This means you have to follow your dreams, trust your instincts, and not give up. What ever you believe in we have been given the power of free will. So what decision are you going to make?
