Have you ever thought what it might be like to have more control over the things you are experiencing in your business? Wouldn't it be great to decide who your ideal clients are, and then have them actually appear? Wouldn't it be great to decide how many hours you want to work, or how much money you would like to make, and have it actually happen?
I always used to love how commander Piccard of Star Trek would determine some action he wanted, and then utter that wonderful four-word phrase, “Let it be so.” And his intention was fulfilled.
Wouldn't it be great to create your intention, utter the words, “Let it be so”, and know for certain that it would happen?
How would things be different for you if that were the case? How would today be different? “What would you do differently today, if you knew you could not fail?”
It's possible! But it runs against our conditioning from our earliest years. Most of us were not taught that we can have control over our OUTER experiences by managing our INNER emotions and beliefs. We were told we could not decide what we wanted to feel or believe. Feelings were something that happened to us, and we had to look in a book or listen to an authority to understand our beliefs. It was all controlled from the outside.
Assuming we had no control over our INNER feelings and beliefs, we found other ways to influence events. Usually, they were OUTER-directed: work harder; work longer; DO more. But this is a good formula for burnout. Have you had enough, and you're just tired–exhausted–always trying to work more, do one more thing–and you end up feeling like a gerbil on a wheel in a cage, running faster and faster yet getting nowhere? Would you like to step off that wheel and get out of the cage?
There's another way.
In our experience, coaching thousands of people, nearly every problem has an inner origin, and therefore, an inner solution. Since the solution involves changing something inside yourself, you have control over your situation. For example, lower level emotions like anger or worry may be contributing to results you are experiencing in your business. You need to have a process of dealing with these emotions that really works for you.
The good news is that you can direct your feelings and your beliefs. You can let go of worry, doubt, and overwhelm!
Let it be so.
Paul McCartney of Beatles fame told us in a song, that he had a voice inside him that said, “Let it be”. I can't help but believe that having that inner voice, in some way, was the major contributing factor to his success, and the success of at least three other people who became famous with him.
When you direct your beliefs, you tap into divinely guided ideas, synchronicities, and miracles. Luck begins to “happen” around you. And you begin to help activate this in others–your employees, your business partners, your family. You stop expecting them to change. Instead, you change your perceptions and therefore how you feel about the situation. Then a miracle occurs. The situation changes for you, since you changed, inside, your need for the situation to change.
