I am a bit like a magpie. Easily distracted by shinny things, so it would not come as a surprise to say that, "Finding My Focus" was one of the top faves of the blog challenge. I bore early with mundane tasks and tend to put off what I could very well do today.
The challenge has forced me to think about the possibilities and what it would take to achieve them. The Possibilities, are just that, possibilities, and they are endless. We just have to convince each other about the endless part. I think that the roadblocks we find in our way, the things that hold us back from achieving our true potential are self imposed, to the greater extent. Now I know that some speed bumps happen to all of us in life and sometimes these speed bumps can be devastating. It is not necessarily what happens to you, but how you react to the event. Much like meditation, if you feel yourself being pulled away from your objective or you feel your focus shifting, you must bring yourself back to your centre and refocus your energy. I spoke about self sabotage and SS can show itself in many ways. No-one is holding me hostage telling me to do or not to do something. It is of my own free will. We can all take a page from that book. Some of us struggle with blog writing, especially in the beginning because we have no-one to be accountable to except ourselves. This is where outside support and community is important. It's important because it makes you accountable to yourself and the group and helps keep you on task. Having someone to help with the questions and help with a roadmap.
My "Key Takeaway" would be consistency. Being consistent ensures that you follow your plan. You show up on time and deliver a great body of work. The focus and consistency are closely related to me because in my mind they are one in the same.
To achieve your true potential, whatever it is you must remain true to yourself and your work. You must have creditability and resolve.
Break down the mental barriers in your mind and refuse to accept anything normal
I have a great feeling of gratitude to Natalie and all the participants in this 10 day workshop. It has helped open my mind and cause me to think about how I perceive myself and put a couple more tools in my tool box. It is my wish that everyone continue what they set out to do and spread their messages to the world.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you
