There is a lot of things I don’t know.
I don’t know what I’m going to have for dinner. I don’t know where I’ll be in 20 years time. And I don’t know how to change a flat tire on my bike (I wish I did!)
But I do know one thing for sure. That when we focus on an area of our life this is yucky we gain power.
We are taking a stand for greatness and change in our own lives. Especially when using the word ‘DECIDE.’ Say one of these aloud:
“I’ve decided to…
… work on my self -confidence
… focus on my finances so I can have more abundance
… start that online business or go back to school
… have my business/job take a back seat so I can tend to my love life
… lose the weight and have a healthy relationship with food”
Feel the power and energy in those words?
Even if you don’t know HOW you are going to accomplish the goal, the first step is always deciding!
When you decide, you’re setting energy, attention, and focus to that area of your life. Talk about power! Can I share a personal story here?
Some years ago I had a physical condition that conventional or alternative medicine couldn’t heal.
I remember thinking, “I’ve tried EVERYTHING!”
Being in the health care field I thought I saw every modality there was.
But somehow I decided (even though I didn’t know the solution at the time) to reach out and try one more time. The act of deciding brought me to a lovely practitioner. What did she teach me?
Emotional Freedom Techniques. And the rest, they say, is history.
But I had to first DECIDE!
YOUR SUCCESS ASSIGNMENT
Choose one (1) area that you are going to focus on. Maybe it’s in the area of health, finances, or a creative pursuit. Which one feels/looks the most messy or nagging you?
Now let’s tap together:
I don’t know how I’m going to accomplish _____________________
I’ve deciding to be open to it
I’m afraid to focus in this area because of the
sadness/pain/disappointment I feel, and I’ve tried before, I’m
deciding to give myself another chance
I don’t know where to begin to have/be/do ______________,I’m
intending to draw the resources and support I need to assist me
– I don’t know how
– I’m deciding to be open
– I’m afraid still
– what if I fail?- I’ve decided to move forward, even if I don’t know how yet
– I need help!
– what if I attract the resources and help I need?
– I’m deciding I deserve this
Deciding can be scary.
Lucky for us, we have our secret weapon, EFT, to calm our fears so we are in a confident state to have, be and do what we really want.
