I blogged recently about
Today, I want to delve deeper into 5 of these questions which I believe are at the heart of your Personal Development.
# Are my dreams achievable or imaginary?
Dreams are a large part of your creative juices. Without them, creativity becomes a shadow, not a light. However, the dreaming is just one part of the whole equation. The dream is the spark. Following through on the dream keeps the flame burning. And following through with energy, planning and desire will go a long way in making your dream/s achievable.
Dreaming and just “wishing” your dream to come true, with no follow through, falls into the imaginary basket.
To attract anything worthwhile in Your Life, you need to be open to receiving it. When you carry the burden of self imposed obstacles, barriers and closed thoughts then your Attraction meter reads very low. I’ll clarify that. Your positive attraction meter reads very low. You will definitely attract … all the wrong stuff.
And this speaks very true of “success”, whatever that success may be. If you don’t see it (being the positive stuff), then it won’t come to you. Believing that you are entitled to as much success in Life as anyone else prompts your sub conscious to act that out. This transfers into your conscious actions in forging your path toward the success that you desire.
# Am I prepared to ask for help to achieve my goals?
A lot of what we do is individual. It is human nature to continue on doing (whatever) and get the job done without feeling that you are bothering anyone else. While this is admirable, the folly is that having a partner or strength of community, solidifies your own position. I am not saying that you seek a “partnership” in everything that you do. It is however a strength to seek help when it is needed.
I was speaking of human nature … it is also valid that people will gladly lend a hand when they see someone who needs it. (This is largely true in Australia therefore I am hopeful this rings true in your part of the world). Ask and doors will open.
# What do I want my Life to look like in 12 months from now?
Not to get too far ahead of yourself however picturing how you want your Life to be in 12 months will make a difference to your Life today. Imagining and placing into action today, what you want to achieve at reference points in the future, quite simply “keeps the dream alive”. You are percolating, not stagnating. You are creating. And that’s a pretty good place to be.
Failing to even consider your Life beyond today, next week … will very likely leave you at the mercy of “whatever happens”. It’s fine to go with the flow … providing you are holding a very strong paddle. Considering, planning, actioning what you want to happen will see you in the right flow that suits you.
# If I fail, will I try again?
There are many quotes on ‘getting up again’ after being knocked down/out/back. The question you must ask of yourself “Will these quotes mirror my Life?” …
“Failure” is a word and an outcome, there’s no escaping that. How much power this word and the outcomes that will occur wield over you, is largely your choice. How many times did you fall down before you began to walk? … you won’t remember however it was plenty. And you didn’t give up, did you? Fast forward many years and you are faced with similar scenarios. You will fall down (fail) many times. I have. To develop and grow on a personal level, you must keep on trying.
Trying, changing, perservering … this will get you places. It’s easy to give up however that is when your growth stalls. Do you want that to happen to You?
I always say that asking the right questions opens the right doors. Are these door openers for you?
