Having starts with Being...

...PING!

Do you ever wish you had more?


Whether it’s money, time, energy, fun or anything else, I’m pretty sure most of you will have had that feeling?


I know I have.



I spent the summer at home with a house full of family members. 6 weeks of one after the other, rolling them in and out, with just enough time to wash the sheets between visits.


It was amazing!


I certainly had a lot of fun.


And to do that, I realized I had to focus, not what I had to do or have, but what I had to Be.


First of all, Be open to having a full house for the whole summer. Be present for my family and scaling down the work. Be confident that I had time to be ready and creative with ideas and new things we could do.


So yes, we had and did a lot, and only because Being enables us to do those things.


If you struggle with getting or having more, it is probably because the energy that goes with having, is the energy of completion. Once you have it, it’s done. It’s finished.


Setting a goal to have something, means once you have it, you no longer need to work toward it anymore, for example:


I want to have more time to exercise.

You rearrange your week, you delegate some activities, you book a session, then you make the time, you exercise, then you are done. Goal achieved. But what’s next?


By changing the goal to Being you are creating movement, and progress, for example:


I will Be someone who creates time to exercise.

Now your goal is continuous, there is no end. You are becoming someone who takes action, being that person enables you to transform into doing what you want, to have what you want.


When you look at your goals, consider:

  • To have this thing, what do I need to do? And to do that, what do I need be?

  • To have more fun, I need to plan fun activities, to plan fun activities I need to be creative and curious. My goal is not to have more fun, it’s to be curious and creative.

Who do you need to be to enable you to have more? Let me know.

 

Thanks for reading, I hope this has given you some things to think about and you have some of your own Lightbulb Moments.

I'd love to hear about them.

If you would like some help experiencing them, I'd love to help.


Please share this with anyone you know who loves experiencing Lightbulb Moments.

Enjoy the Ping!
