There is More for You

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how we decide what success looks like, and then get locked into that pattern.  This is the income, this is the lifestyle.  And then when something happens that bursts that dream apart (the loss of a job, a home, death of a loved one, etc.) it becomes very hard to move on, because we’re also grieving the loss of that dream.

I believe that there is significant abundance in store for each of us.  But if we force that concept into the small boxes that we’ve created for it, we may miss out on all that’s available.

We need to let go of our preconceived notions of abundance, and open ourselves to what the universe may be putting into our path.  Every day, if you’re open to it, small possibilities present themselves.  It might be a crazy (or not so crazy) idea.  It may be a small (or large) opportunity.  But what we do is we weigh that idea or opportunity against our preconceived notions of what life should be, and then we fail to act.  And then we miss out on what that could have led to.

What opportunity is your business presenting to you today?  Is something holding you back from going for it?

So many people have lost their jobs, their homes, their self-esteem, and they’re grieving not only the losses, but also the whole concept of what their life should be.  Today I urge each of you to let go of what you’ve decided life SHOULD be, and stay open to the opportunities.  Because there is more for every single person.  And that “more” will allow you to touch more lives and do more good in the world.

Stay open.

    I’ve been listening to Michael Losier’s classes on Abundance and The Law of Attraction and this is exactly what he’s talking about. We have such strict definitions of what abundance is, but if we look into our lives, there is so much more that has value. If you collect this evidence of abundance, the universe will send you more.

    Great blog post Jennifer! We need to let go of the shoulda, coulda, woulda and focus on the is. Things aren’t always going to go the way we want them to. We need to take a step back, look at what’s going on and make a new plan.

      Exactly. It can be hard. I’ve been there. But even a small step can move us forward.

    Love it! Reminds me of a quote that goes something like…Don’t miss the open window while you’re staring at the closed door.

          Oooo, I just had to change my search terms and I found it. Now, let’s see if it works.

          Thanks so much!
