As I was updating the blog, I came across this post series from 2008 that was never completed. Today, I pick up where I left off all those years ago. (Better late than never, right?!) Here are the links to Step 1, Step 2, and Step 3.
Most of us know the power of positive thinking, but few of us practice it with any consistency. And if you were to ask a room full of people how often they meditate on their goals and desires, some of them would have no idea what meditation is and others of them spend far more time worrying about how to meditate and whether they are doing it correctly, than they actually spend meditating on the very goals and desires they say are so important to them.
Because step number 2 — forgiveness — is so powerful, you have had a little longer to perfect that one. Truly it is something you should do each night to clear your mind and spirit of all the hurts, frustrations and disappointments you have collected throughout your day. This allows you the freedom to move forward without a piece of you forcibly hanging onto the past.
Now that you have had more than a week of affirming “I am success,” you are ready to take a quantum leap forward with this week’s key: FORGIVENESS.
So often you go through life collecting hurts, disappointments, and resentments, putting others through constant tests and trials (unbeknownst to them) and storing their failing results in the back of your mind, only to be accessed at a later time (usually while updating their file with any new failed test results!). To add insult to injury, you soon run out of space in your mind, so your body begins to store that pain, anger, sadness, and UNFORGIVENESS in various parts of your body. Did you realize that?
What does success mean to you? What does it look like? What does it feel like? How excited are you when you close your eyes and visualize yourself basking in all the success you could ever imagine…and more?
No one ever achieved success without a plan, do you have one? The first step is to discover the true key to success and when you do, it will be relatively easy to create an action plan to move you closer to the life you deserve.
