What My World's Like

committed and ardent?

Oct

It’s been a long time since I’ve sat down to assemble and share my thoughts, but I’m prompted to do so now and must submit to that urge. Too often, we get caught up in doing whatever we’re doing, maybe even doing things we don’t really want to do, and ignore the internal push guiding us elsewhere. For far too long, that’s been the case with not just writing and my dedication to this craft I repeatedly abandon, but other equally and more important tasks like creating the life I want to live.

Doing so requires commitment. Tireless commitment. And the passion necessary for dedication.

I’ve wasted too much time, fearful, doubting, wavering, uncertain. And the odds are in favor of me correctly saying “so have you.”

Let’s get clear and let’s forge new and unique paths that uplift and illuminate us and those around us.

This year has been an amazing testimony of what’s possible and I see so clearly now that I’ve got to get out of my own way and you’ve got to get out of your own way so we can be so great, truly. Individually and collectively. It must happen.

Stop allowing yourself to be distracted. Focus, commit, and succeed.

What do you want?
How willing are you to do what it takes to get it?

Monday motivation: Commit to yourself

“Commit to yourself” is my mantra for the week. I’m certain it’ll last longer than a week, but for now, that’s what it is.

It’s amazing how much space in our lives we can fill with things that are mostly inconsequential and detract from what actually matters to us, Twitter and Facebook, for example.

This week, I’m committing to my meditation practice, an inspiring beginning to my 30-day fitness challenge, writing more, keeping my vibration high, and being more productive in general. I waste a lot of time. Thing is…that time is life, so I’m wasting a lot of life.

Why commiting to ourselves is important rarely needs explanation, but often requires reminders. So commit to your best interest, your goals, your health, your wealth, your improvement, your joy, your highest vision of who you can be, your ideas and beliefs, your definitions, your style, your version of your life–no one else’s.

We succeed when we dedicate ourselves to the completion of our goals. Life is full of verbs. Commit.

Monday motivation: Have you lost your muchness?

alice in wonderland

Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland entertained me last night, in addition to providing a little inspiration. As Alice fights her fate in Wonderland, Mad Hatter tells her, “You were much more muchier. You’ve lost your muchness.”

Today’s question is “have you lost your muchness?” If the answer is yes, the follow-up question is “what can you do to reclaim it?” If the answer is no, the follow-up is “Yay! Great for you,” and “what’s next?”
