At any given point in time, we are in the process of becoming…becoming more, becoming….I don’t really like the word less….perhaps just not as much as our potential could reveal or unveil. Becoming starts with being..and as much as it is a bit of a paradox…

Being starts with simply being that which you would like to become. Once you meditate and hold the belief within yourself that you are what you would like to be, you start becoming that very thing, from the inside out. The exciting part about the work I have studied for decades and now teach; is really what we allow and give permission to folks to do.

Embodying what you would like to become transforms you. This is such a powerful concept. Embody, envision, believe you are that person you want to become. You already hold the traits within you. In fact, it wouldn’t be possible to envision this new “person” you would like to be if you weren’t actually able to achieve that very vision. Allow yourself to feel it. And allow yourself to believe it.

Meditate on how you would feel being that person in that very place, having turned that vision into reality. Don’t let any negative thought patterns or incredulous talk (i.e. “you can’t possibly be that!”) force you to back down from envisioning this person you want to be. Just be still and let that thought warm you. Image your future snapshot as if it were today. Imagine with all the sensory vividness of reality.

“Cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children of your soul, the blueprints of your ultimate achievements.” Napoleon Hill

Real growth arises from being able be your own person, allowing allowing yourself and ourselves to weave together the tapestry of a life. To truly step out to become all that we are meant to become, we risk. We risk the loss of our little selves, we risk loss or rejection and we risk failure. I know it is well worth the risk. The rewards are the emergence of our bigger selves and beautiful experiences of joy and pleasure. However, there is work to do.

Yes, there is work to do, action steps along the way always in the direction of your dream. Obstacles are merely the scary things you see when you take your eyes off your vision. Stay focused and continue to put one foot in front of the other.
