Where Are You Looking?

April 24, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 190

Where you look to see how you are doing or where you want to go is very revealing. How you reference your progress dictates the outcome you will generate.

Are you looking ahead?

Are you caught up in the "what if's?" What is the worst that can happen? How can we be prepared for this situation or that situation? Do you start looking ahead with fear or apprehension? Are you not trying things because you fear the outcome? Looking ahead can stop you in your tracks.

Are you looking to the side?

Are you busy comparing yourself to others? Do you feel unsuccessful because someone you know seems to be doing better? Are you in a constant race with your peers to "get ahead"? The only race you are running is with yourself. You might get some ideas from others that you can adapt to your own unique style, but that very uniqueness will always keep you doing it your way, like no one else can. Don't look for comparisons; enjoy being yourself.

Are you looking behind?

We often use how far we have come to measure our progress. Sometimes that can feel good and other times not so much. If you haven't progressed, you will be discouraged. If you have progressed, you might feel overwhelmed. Look in the present to see if you are still doing what resonates.

The present holds the key

The ego wants us to plan. We want control. We want to make stuff happen. But the best place to look for your next step is in the moment. Keep your mind open and unstructured. Become more aware of the signs and signals the Universe offers that show you new possibilities. How you feel in the moment, the opportunities and circumstances you find yourself in, the internal changes you have made as you live your life are powerful guidelines to the steps you could take next. See how you feel in the moment.. Notice what new ideas and opportunities have appeared. Focus on the problems you can actually impact. Act on what you are internally urged to do in that moment. Keep your eye on the qualities you want to have prominent in your life like love, kindness, serenity, contentment and make choices that honor your values like honesty, truthfulness, and service to others.

Don't look ahead in anticipation. Don't look beside in comparison. Don't look behind to measure progress. Look inside, right now and move forward from there.
