Is It Really That Outrageous?

Are your dreams, desires, and goals for the new year that outrageous? Are you doubting your ability to achieve to greater heights in life and living?  Do you say to yourself,” Oh, I could never…”  Stop and follow your outrageousness.  You are a creative being with the power, talent and ability to achieve your dreams, desires and goals.  If you don’t follow your dream someone else will have the same idea and run with it.  Many decades ago a person we knew had an offer to take their product to market and due to a lack of self-confidence they declined the offer thinking, “Who would buy my product?”  The following year someone else, who had the same idea, started and it became a national chain. 

To achieve your goals requires taking a risk; a risk on yourself, your ideas, your talents and abilities.  Believe in yourself and your idea   Know you are always in the right place at the right time and speak to the right people with the right words to convey your message.      

If it wasn’t for our dreams which become desires and then goals people would still be living in caves oblivious to their creative genius and ingenuity. 

So what if your dreams, desires or goals appear to be outrageous to the rest of the world, does it really matter?   You are an original, so be original, and follow your heart and intuition to attain your goal and enjoy the end product of your success. 

Believe in yourself, in what you are doing and your idea.  Be proactive in your moving forward to newness in 2013.  Be willing to take a risk on your creative self-expression.

Alright, here it is in a nutshell:  Get a sheet of paper and at the top write:

My 2013 Goals

Then list your goals, be sure they are realistic and not so out of reach they set you up for failure.  Goals are met to stretch us, to allow us to grow and realize our talent and ability, to be more of who we are and not less. 

Be willing to learn from the errors and do not be discouraged.

Listen to your intuition!! 

Be willing to take a detour on the path to achieving your goals, things don’t always go as planned and that is a good thing.

Set your own goals.  No one else can set goals for you. 

If you have children that are setting goals, don’t discourage them or make disparaging remarks about their goals. Support them with your love and heart, offering help when asked, this does not mean if a suggestion is needed when they are a bit stumped you can’t offer but be sure to do it lovingly and with encouragement; it is their goals, let them discover their abilities and talents to achieve.

Do not share your goals with anyone!!  Keep them your secret, you don’t need any naysayers.  If you and a mate/partner are setting goals, be it at home or in business keep them to yourself.

These are basics but remember: If you can Conceive it, and Believe it, you can Achieve it.

Baubles And Beads

   Bells, whistles, feather boas, colorful baubles and beads, sequins, sparkles and all out gaudy make for a very colorful and unique day.  How colorful is your day?

We tend to get into a rut with everyday living and working.  Wouldn’t you like to jazz it up a bit?  I realize hanging a fuchsia feather boa on your chair or around your neck and Mardi Gras beads off the corners of the cubicle or picture are not the norm or even allowed in many workplaces, hence we are relegated to jazzing up our mind with the color and energy of positive and creative thoughts.

As we jazz it up, up there, it provides us with a wonderful feeling, permeates all we do and who we are–time to; end the drabbiness (my word), add color, energy, and sparkle to our being.  As we sparkle things up, up there, we glow, we effervesce and are open to new perspectives on life, answers to questions and problems appear with creative ways and resolutions.

Life is about being, being us, without creating too much of a stir, ahem, don’t want to scare people.  Coming from an artistic family (music, art, design) I like the classics and the different that has a style and co-ordination to the scheme/theme of the work.  Sometimes even the extremely outrageous finds a place in my “like” arena of life.  The point is, we are each unique individualized expressions of Life Itself.  Each of us is creative in our own ways.   In being successful it is important to be true to ourselves and not sacrifice ourselves just to succeed and be miserable.  Miserable is not part of successful living.

If we want true success and well-being in our life it is important for us to live our life and too, add color and dimension to our being.  Time to go from 1D to 3 D.

The gaudy bling dresses up the outside for “looks” but the real glitter and sparkle of life takes place within each of us.  Add a touch of color and sparkle to your day today.  Dare to be colorful you–without creating too much of a stir and should people look at you askance–smile and nod and let them wonder why it is you are so excitingly you.
