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.

Are You Kitchen Brave? Part 1 of 2

  

Are you kitchen brave?  Are you brave enough to be you in the kitchen of life?  Are you willing to walk into the kitchen of your mind to experiment and create your own unique recipe for success, prosperity and overall well-being?  Are you ready to break some eggs and mix things up? If so, continue reading and get ready to bake up some new exciting recipes for life.

We are always creating through our cooking, our baking, our thoughts and beliefs. Life has given each of us a mind and every moment of every day we have a variety of thoughts that shape our character.  Our thoughts, beliefs and concepts are the batter and dough of our life, we are forever taking the formless and giving it form.  From the mixing bowl of thought to the oven of life to solidify our creation.  We live in the kitchen of life, the kitchen of personal creation.

Creating recipes in the kitchen are about learning from what works in a recipe and what does not.  Some of our creations don’t turn out the way we planned and we have to go back to the recipe and make changes learning what will work to bring forth our desired creation.  Life is about learning what works for us and what does not.  From this learning experience we can enhance our life in prosperous and successful ways.

If we are truly interested in making our lives more fulfilling and more reflective of a robust and prosperous life then we must step into the kitchen of our mind and begin to create and bake a new way of manifesting the life we want, no more sitting at the kitchen table with a glass of ice cold milk waiting for the cookies to be set in front of us. It is time to be proactive and get our hands covered in flour and roll out the dough, ready the oven and get ourselves in gear.  Get your apron ‘cause this is gonna be one heck of a baking session. 

Basic ideas/inspiration can be gained from; books, quotes, perhaps a platitude or two, or positive affirmations and informative articles which can begin to stir the creative juices. But until we decide to do something with these inspiring pieces we will only have the warm fuzzies and nothing more. Time to utilize our inborn talents and abilities and make the life we dream of and desire. The time has arrived to take action for our own self-improvement, which in turn will affect the world around us in positive ways. Time to get into the kitchen and create the cookie of your dreams!

Get out the electric mixer, flour, eggs, milk, butter, sugar, vanilla extract, baking powder and baking soda, the basics of the recipe.  We all have the basics at our finger tips; the challenge is what we are going to use to make it our own unique recipe. Are we going to use ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon extract, almond extract, add nuts or poppy seeds?  The combinations are endless and we can create the recipes we desire and if it is not to our liking we can change it up and make it better.  It is merely a batter of mind, no pun intended.  When we have mixed the ingredients together it becomes a batter or dough, to create a cake, a cupcake, a cookie or a jelly roll, perhaps cinnamon buns, the choice is always ours. What do you feel like today?

Part 2 tomorrow.
