Be committed, not attached

Commitment

 

“Be committed, not attached. But more importantly, know the difference.”

—Anonymous

The difference between being committed and being attached is the ability to trust.

Trust enables us to dream big, set goals, work toward our goals, and stay open to more than one outcome. Trust enables us to ask “what did I learn?”, “how did I grow?” when things don’t go as we planned.

Commit to taking the action needed to bring your goals to life, but guard against being attached to a specific outcome. When we are attached to a specific outcome, we try to control the process rather than trust the process. Trust enables us to keep our minds focused and our hearts open to guidance as we pursue our goals.

The true power of commitment lies in your ability to make decisions, act on your decisions, and trust the process.

Release the past

Past Future

I can think of a time in my life when my primary focus was on past mistakes, missed opportunities, and the wrong doing of others. It was a dead end focus that kept me anchored in the past, silently suffering in the present, and not truly moving forward. 

Through an ongoing process of forgiveness, I learned to release the past, resentment, and anger that I felt toward myself and others. Instead of looking back on challenging or painful situations with resentment and regret, I began to look back and ask what I learned about myself (first and foremost) and others and how the ‘lessons learned’ could help me grow. This was an ongoing process that helped me get unstuck and move forward. It was a process that required me to use my personal powerthe power of choice and actionto make real changes in my life.

The first step to release the past is to decide to release the past. There is great power in deciding to let it go. There is even more power in writing your decision down.

Once you have affirmed your decision to release the past in writing, sit with your decision in silence and allow your wise self that awaits you in silence  to guide your steps forward. You have the power to release the past so that you can begin to truly moving forward.  

Questions for reflection:

  • What in my past is keeping me from enjoying the present?
  • What in my past is keeping me from proactively creating my future?
  • What steps can I take to release the past so that I can truly move forward?

Stand For, Not Against

PowerPoint Presentation

Take a stand for what you believe and magnify it in your life.

When we know what we stand for, we spend time and energy creating what we want instead of spending time and energy fighting against/resisting what we don’t want.

Resistance can feel good in the moment and give us a sense of power, however, it is not solution or growth oriented. When we are in resistance mode, we are focused on what we don’t want; rather than proactively creating what we want. 

Take time each day to renew your connection to your heart to help you stay focused on what you want to magnify in your life and in the world (e.g., peace, love, joy, etc.).

Global change begins with personal transformation. 

In preparation for the week ahead, I invite you to reflect on the following questions. 

  • What do I stand for? 
  • How can I magnify it in my life?

FOCUS: Time, Energy, Money

PowerPoint Presentation

One of the best ways to focus your time, energy, and money is to set a goal. Goals enable you to go from hoping and wishing to manifesting what you truly desire.

Keeping track of how you are managing your resources in support of your goals is critical to success.

In preparation for the week ahead, I invite you to reflect on the following question. 

Is the way I am spending my time, energy, and money helping me create the life that I truly desire? If the answer isn’t a resounding yes, please read on.

Take Action:

Keep track of how you are spending your time, energy, and money in a journal or notebook every day for the next seven days. Use the results to see where you need to make adjustments to make progress toward your goals. Small changes on a weekly basis can have a tremendous effect.

Walking a Spiritual Path

Nature Path

What is spirituality?

It depends who you ask. Spirituality means different things to different people. I define spirituality as awareness/consciousness of a higher presence working in and through our lives. It is experienced as a sense of belonging to something greater, timeless, and infinite in possibility. It is the means through which we feel a deep sense of purpose and connection to all of life.

What is a spiritual path?

Heart-centered/Truth-centered path and process of empowerment.

What is the best way to walk a spiritual path?

There is no right or wrong way to walk a spiritual path; it is a deeply personal path that is influenced by your values, beliefs, trust, experiences, introspection, reflection, and practices. It is an internal process of discerning what is true for you and living from that truth.

Truth is the light that guides your way.

Are you seeking a deeper sense of purpose and direction for your life? Do you feel stuck in one or more areas of your life?

Living from the Inside Out

Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.

Carl Jung

Are you living from the outside in? Do you feel disconnected from your true self and power within? 

A new way of living begins when you choose to live from the heart and guidance within.  Your heart is your spiritual core, center of truth, inner compass, and guide to living your highest potential.

You invoke the wisdom of your heart when you ask yourself questions like “What is true for me?”  “What is true about my life?” “What do I value most in my life?” “What is best for my life?” Your heart intuitively knows the answers.

Clarity is power and it comes from within.

Take the first step:

Be still. Be quiet. Be open to inner guidance.

Thirty-Day Challenge:

Take time each day to listen to the wisdom of your own heart.
