Most of us are concerned about the world around us. We are aware of the people we work with and the things we do. But may not focus on what we really want. We are born, go to school, get a job possibly get married and have children. It is as if a script has been written for us and we play the role given to us. It is as if fate chooses careers and lifestyles. It’s tantamount to going through life on autopilot.
In coaching sessions, I ask people how they got into their careers. Many say that it was an economic opportunity. Back in the day, people might end up retiring from that job or career. Today they might jump from one career to another never really consciously thinking about what they really want. When asked they might give the standard answers: financial security, family, friends, and health usually top this list. But what does that look like in practical terms? Would you want to earn money doing something you don’t like doing or have rocky family relationships?
During the coaching certification process, I had to do an exercise called “Picture My Practice.” It forced me to visualize, then write down what it would take to have a successful practice. I had to prioritize and purge. The things that are more important to the practice are at the top of the list. Other things that I liked to do but pulled me away from my practice had to be curtailed or eliminated. When you know what you really want, the law of attraction kicks in.
If you are not familiar with the law of attraction, it’s time that you delve into the phenomenon and recognize the influence it has on your life. I have experienced the law in my life. When I became interested in starting a youth development program, I talked about it a lot. People started sending me articles and suggesting people I could speak with. Instead of me looking for information the information came to me.
It may sound a bit crazy, but if you desire something, understand that your thoughts are powerful. Changing your thoughts can change your destiny,
