…for you to be living life on your terms?
Our most-useful first step to living the life we love is to get clear about what we do actually want in our lives. Once we know what we desire, we can open ourselves to creating/receiving more of it.
That’s the reason in our acronym ‘Do Care’, it’s time to cover Part 2 of our 6-part series, in which we focus on ‘O’ which is for openness. Namely being open to new ideas and ultimately to change (baring in mind that change can be scary or confronting for many of us).
So, when we want more of something – it may be time or financial freedom for example – it can help us to connect with someone who already has what we’re after, and find out how they did it.
And incidentally, if this is you, do PM me because that’s what Fi and I have done with our coaching academy. We guide people through the steps we’ve taken and teach them how to do the same within their own lives.
Perhaps you just want to not feel so stressed out. The real key to experiencing more ease, is changing our thinking from Newtonian time (based on limited resources) to Einstein time. This is a whole new game, where we tap into the philosophy that there’s no time concept outside of you. Gay Hendricks talks about Einstein time in his excellent book ‘The Big Leap’.
When we think about it, humans weren’t always so dependent on arbitrary times. People worked when the sun came up and slept when the sun went down.
These days, most people have 15 minutes before the next appointment and the next and the next.
And we do ‘stressed out’ as a standard way of being.
Einstein time draws on the notion that when we go to do something, time just flies by if we’re fully into it. Yet if we don’t like something, it feels like it takes forever to pass. Another way to look at it is deciding to compress time or stretch it out, depending on what’s happening inside of you. Check out The Big Leap to learn more about it – it’s worth a read!
It comes back to openness, especially being open to change. 1
Have a play with your first step, and stay tuned for the next video in this series when we talk about creating your progress-plan.
Til then, have a fantastic week – and Fi and I will see you on this week’s #AlivewithFi
1Allowing change can be challenging, yet without change, we’d likely stay stuck in the same place and miss out on any possible benefits. It’s worth remembering, everything in life undergoes change to get a new, often more beautiful chapter: “if there were no change, there would be no butterflies”.
