I have no idea what day I'm on anymore...I think #11. I get to it when I can and don't beat myself up. Woo hoo! It's all perfect. And hey...welcome to my blog and thanks for visiting. I love you for giving me a few minutes of your time.
So today I pulled out an old CD program of mine on the mental side of selling by one of my favorite speakers, Matthew Ferry. Quite frankly this program topic spans more than just selling....it's a fabulous way of BEing in all kinds of everyday situations. Matthew is an Abraham-Hicks protege so of course you know what to expect. Feel Good is the prescription of the day. :)
A part of the CD jumped out at me today as I was driving home. He was talking about how, if you're feeling scared and anxious, you're focused too much on ME. If you're feeling unable, or uninspired, you're focusing too much on ME. Wanna feel fearful? Wanna feel doubt? Wanna feel dissatisfaction? It all stems from Self-Focus.
Wow...nice big thump on the head. I've been so focused on creating a better me, figuring out what I want to do when I grow up (I'm 43 years old by the way), reaching my spiritual potential, feeling good and finding inspiration to take action....that I've forgotten to focus on others. How can I contribute? What can I do to make you feel valuable and loved?
Not to say I'm totally selfish. I do a lot of little things regularly to let people know I care. But I think I've been so razor focused on ME, ME, ME and HOW, HOW, HOW, that I'm not letting things flow as they should. Life is wonderful and I have extreme gratitude for so much. Sometimes, well actually ALL the time, I have to just STOP...enjoy now...and realize it's all perfect. Things are flowing, life is happening, and there's no need to "arrive" by 5:00 pm today.
So I'd like some ideas on how you contribute. What do you do that doesn't break the bank to help others feel good, recognize their value and worth, contribute your time, talents and energy to others? I've had this idea lately on just putting together a book on gratitude...whereby people write their gratitude lists on a daily basis to help shift their focus from "don't have's" to "wow...look what I do have!". I want it to be a free thing I offer people with an invitation to write to me and share their wins. I have an extreme desire to get people to change their "stinkin' thinkin" as the saying goes. I think about this little book everyday...and yet...I haven't written a single thing.
Suggestions? Comments? Swift kicks in the ass? :) I'm ready...bring it on friends.
