More money, more Love, and a Better body!!
Seems like everyone wants more in life, but what keeps us from achieving what we want?
To encounter new levels of wealth, romance, and health; require new ways of thinking and behaving. This "promised land flowing with milk and honey" often involves engaging in new experiences with different individuals. So many of us have been on the verge of getting the things we have worked and prayed for, but the fear of being challenged, rejected, misunderstood, or hurt prevent us from having the life we imagine. Our inability to communicate effectively and unwillingness to consider different perspectives prevents growth.
Why am I so guarded?
In the times when you feel guarded and defensive, ask yourself why. If what you guard and defend against is solid and accurate, nothing can dismount it, and there is no reason to withhold it from being tested and tried.
Yet if there is a chance that what you believe is not producing progressive results, wouldn't you want the light to expose dimly lit areas, or do you want to stay in the dark?
Is it more important to protect your viewpoint than to be open to expanding your perspective?
"It's important to have people who are absolutely willing to say you're wrong or who have a totally different perspective than you do on everything. Fresh ideas are hard to come by, and good ones are even harder." - Shonda Rhimes
Throughout my experience and training, I've learned that there is an art to receiving new information. The steps to effective Learning engagement are to:
Listen for the purpose of understanding,
Ask questions of yourself and credible others for clarity. This is a continual process of asking for clarity in your thoughts, desires, and, ultimately, decisions.
Adjust Seek to adjust to the information. You may find that what you have believed is no longer accurate or applicable, which is ok.
Apply this new knowledge to broaden your understanding.
The L.A^3 approach, Listen, Ask, Adjust and Apply, prepares the way for a road of less resistance and a more enjoyable journey in life.
The success of many can be attributed to the ability to adjust to new or fresh perspectives. The ability to add to the existing wealth of knowledge possessed is what ultimately catapults the individual that much closer to a desired goal or dream.
Success in relationships, business or personal, takes the work of continuous reevaluating and renewing concepts, assumptions and habits.
I encourage you today to see the potential in expansion. Open up and have a yes attitude. See life developing for you and not against you.
The journey is life-changing and mind-blowing!
Live Well in Every Area of Your Life! Have a day of expectancy!
