I’ve spoken in the past about the power of the mind to change your reality, the big question is HOW do you do it.
Strategies such as: focusing on results; insisting on an outcome; being determined that you won’t stop until you reach your goal; and being very specific in what you want, can all help immeasurably to lead you towards your goal.
But sometimes we try too hard! And we can want something so much, that we get in the way of our own natural process. If we are following the natural process it should feel light, easy, flowing and effortless. We need to be detached from our outcome to allow it to manifest easily and effortlessly.
The moment we try too hard, the extra effort we expend, stops the flow of effortless energy and manifestation. It’s a bit like the racing driver, who wants a quick start, and puts too much power on the accelerator and ends up spinning the wheels and going nowhere.
So, how do you avoid trying too hard, having too much focus, being too determined and ending up just being obsessed?
Well you might want to look at having a Plan B (and C).
It may seem that having a Plan B and C, will undermine that sense of determination, insistence, focus. To some extent that may be true, but it will also give you a much more relaxed attitude and the proper degree of detachment from your Plan A. Having a Plan B and C is much more a reflection of life. We don’t run our life on a straight line (or most of us don’t). We respond to the vagaries that life throws before us, we review opportunities when they arise, and take them if they lead in the direction we favour.
Why have a Plan B and a Plan C? Why 2 alternative plans? The answer to that is simple: if you have only one plan you give yourself no choice; two plans give you a dilemma (and that creates tension); but three options gives you real choice.
So, I’d invite you to sit down today – together, and work out your Plan B and Plan C. And turn them into futures that you can really embrace and commit to. They want to excite your imagination and passion and lead you to a life that will be fulfilling. And your plans need to address the elephant in the room – what if you don’t get pregnant? Will you look at alternative family building avenues? How will you live a full and useful life?
All your plans – A, B and C – want to be written down, and fairly detailed about WHAT you want and WHY you want it (how you get it is not as important). If you’ve not already done this with your Plan A, do it now and then follow on with Plan B and C. Then store them all away somewhere and forget about Plan B and C.
You can then turn your attention to manifesting your Plan A in the knowledge that you’ve created real choice for yourself while at the same time creating the detachment which is so important if you want to manifest your dreams.
So, go get that pen and paper now and start planning.
