Choose A Path
Sometimes, it’s as simple as choosing a path to go down. Especially when you have no idea what to do next. We all do pretty well when we are doing what we know, but when we step outside of that we can become overwhelmed. Too many paths is often worse than too few. With too few you can usually figure something out. When everything is laid out before you like a banquet, which do you do first? Which is the right one? Which will bring the right outcome?
The truth is, there is no way to know until you do it. That being said, it’s what you bring to any endeavor that determines the outcome. There is no magic formula. It really isn’t a question of a “right” path, it’s a question of the energy, creativity and determination you bring to anything that decides what the outcome will be. In other words, things are neutral until you put yourself into the equation. You are what makes all the difference in anything. That’s why two people can do exactly the same thing and one succeeds and one doesn’t. It depended on the kind of energy that was brought to bear in each case.
While it might look as if the two people were doing exactly the same thing. They weren’t. There was an energetic difference. The one who didn’t succeed had a reservation about something which might not have been evident, but was operating, none-the-less. This kind of thing is very subtle and hard to pin down sometimes, but it’s always there. It might be an attitude that the project was too hard, or that the person felt they didn’t have the right skills or abilities to complete it. It might have been an old message of “not good enough” which surfaced once again. We often have old messages that come up at the very worst times. Or, seen another way, they keep coming up so we’ll change them and not keep them buried anymore. There is always a reason for everything and there is always a solution to everything. Those are often not the ones we see, but they are right there in front of us when we shift our perception.
That’s why we see examples of people overcoming incredible odds all the time. They are not anomalies, they were desperate and the only thing they could do is let go of whatever had been stopping them and just go for it. It was all or nothing for them and they chose all. That’s often what it takes to succeed. Sometimes there are huge stakes like staying alive sometimes there are much smaller stakes such as being embarrassed. Next time you have to step up if your life isn’t on the line, then what do you really have to lose?
You can do whatever you need or want to do.
My best to you,
