Understanding Your Daily Focus
Hello, there Fellow Seekers!
We often hear, growing up, that our dreams are just that, dreams; and that we need to be practical as we plan our futures. Once middle school begins, we are told that we need to start thinking about our future, because high school is too late to start planning. So we start early, planning a future based on what makes sense rather than on what fills us with passion and what we dream about.
There is always a way though, to find a balance in our lives so that we can benefit from a life that gives us stability but also allows us to follow our bliss, so to speak, if we have the courage to listen to both our heads and our hearts.
This week’s Daily Focus looks at inspiration to tune in to our hearts and dreams so that we can manifest a future that merges the best of all worlds!
“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.” –Arthur Ashe
We all have abilities, talents, and interests that are extensions of who we are. They come as easily and naturally to us as breathing, but when we are trying to plan our futures we fail to acknowledge those innate strengths, or we have a tendency to minimize them. Just as it is important for us to know how much is in our bank accounts when we go to pay our bills, it is equally as important for us to know what skills and talents we have at our disposal so that we can make the most of opportunities that present themselves and to ensure that we make choices based on our strengths. Take some time to get to know yourself, your strengths, and what fills you with passion; then take that information and plan the next steps. Today’s word is Inventory.
“Don’t be pushed around by the fears in your mind, be led by the dreams in your heart.”
Fear can make us react without thinking first or it can completely paralyze us. This often happens when we let our brains do all the talking and we ignore what our hearts and intuition are trying to tell us. Fear is a bully! If a person were to treat us the way fear does we wouldn’t tolerate it. So why do we let fear have that kind of control over us? We need to remember that ultimately we are in control of our lives and that we have the power to quiet the fearful voices that keep us trapped and allow our dreams and hearts to guide us toward lives that resonate with our true purposes. Today’s word is Fearless!
“Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world.” –Joel Barker
Planning is a needed step into our growth, but too often we get stuck in a never-ending cycle of planning, re-vamping, re-imagining, and go round and round in circles, putting too much energy into something that doesn’t bring about anything tangible. Likewise, simply doing something for the sake of having something to do will inevitably leave us feeling bored and unfulfilled. We all have the ability to merge the two and manifest the changes we wish to see in ourselves, others, and the world that we live in. Today’s word is Proactive.
“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” –Nelson Mandela
I can not express how much I love this quote! How many of us have had that moment where we realized that although we are living a good life, it doesn’t quite fulfill us the way that we thought it would? I’ve been there! That dissatisfaction with life, or ennui sets in when our spirit/subconscious knows that what we are doing and who we are isn’t in line with what we are supposed to be doing or who we are meant to be. Sadly, many people play it safe and allow themselves to find pleasure in that sense of security; but boy does it come with one heck of a cost. Break out of your gilded cage and start living a life that is truly golden! Today’s word is Passion.
“The only thing worse than starting something and failing … is not starting something.” –Seth Godin
No one wants to fail, or even fall short. It can be hard on our self-esteem, and our confidence can take a blow. Embarrassment is never an enjoyable experience but is it any worse than looking back and going through the litany of “I should have… I could have… I would have’s….”? When we are not successful at a goal we can take it as a setback and stop trying or we can learn from it, redefine things and try again. At least then when we are old and grey we can look back and know that we never stopped trying and moving forward! Today’s word is Achievement.
“Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.” –Earl Nightingale
Time goes on. Whether it is flowing slowly or quickly it will happen whether we want it to or not, so why do we say that it will take too long to accomplish a dream or goal and then turn our backs on it? If time is going to pass no matter what, don’t we owe it to ourselves to make the most of it? Working towards a goal or dream is one of the best ways to pass that time and once we reach the end of our journey we can look back and know that we spent that time wisely. Today’s word is Futurity.
“When you stop chasing your dreams, your dreams start chasing you.” –Dez Del Rio
A restlessness or sense of disenchantment can set in when we simply make due or settle for a life that fits more like a baggy sweater instead of a custom-fitted suit. These days it is not unheard of for people to switch their careers, move across the globe, go back to school, or otherwise redefine their lives – and themselves – later in life. This is what happens when your dreams decide to chase you, and sooner or later they catch up. Take a peek over your shoulder and see how close your dreams are to catching up with you. Maybe you will decide to turn around and meet those dreams head-on! Today’s word is Dreamer.
