Riding the Waves of Life and Business – Part 1June 12, 2009
Hi gang! I posted this as a tool to my Facebook Group, but I thought that my blog followers would definitely appreciate it as well. Last week was an amazing week – and a challenging one! Planning a 3-day event for 200 people is a huge undertaking. Colleagues, friends, fans and team members flew in from all over the globe, literally! We had one guest from Viet Nam and another from New Zealand!!!! What I was left with is experiencing something I’ve ALWAYS known: RELEASE in order to FOCUS.
Quite simply, our minds can only hold so much data, and releasing worry and resentment (the future and the past) frees you to FOCUS on the NOW. This allows you to stay “on purpose” and poised to move your needle every single day.
This week’s tool is simply to make a list of what worries and memories occupy your mind. If you can release those, you can be available for those amazing, unexpected opportunities (like making a million dollar business connection in Starbucks, which actually happened to me not that long ago – now if I’d been lost in my own resentments or worries, I would not have been focused on the moment, and I would have missed it).
So give yourself a gift over the next few days and make that list. Then do whatever pragmatic or spiritual exercise you can to simply RELEASE the entire list – even if it’s just for ONE day. See what one day without painful, distracting rumination can do for your business and your life! Then, do that exercise quickly every day. Clear your mental decks for GREATNESS! Hey, why not?
Your friend, Christine Comaford
