Almost everyone I’ve ever met has a vision for the future. We are all thinking about the next project or currently immersed in it and have a wish list for what we’d like to see coming up.
Unfortunately, most of us are in the thinking stage, not making any movement forward and the days just pass by.
We tell ourselves lots of stories and the versions are endless. Underneath themes like “not enough time, money, support, education” and so on, the foundation is the same and boils down to one thing: Fear.
You can spend hours and days trying to unravel it or do one simple thing to transcend it.
When you find yourself not taking the next step, whether you’re telling the story or connected to the fear, stop and imagine that you are an observer. You are watching yourself as if you were on a movie screen and the final outcome doesn’t really matter.
Do this for 90 seconds and that will be enough to disconnect you from the story or lower the volume on the emotion you’re feeling.
Once you are unplugged you can step over or around and get back to moving closer to the picture you’ve designed and are committed to having.
This is a new practice so repeat it often and as needed.
Before you know it, you’ll look up see the finish line, crowds cheering you on and if you could pan out and see the entire journey, you’d see that you are actually closer than you think.
