Plan and Organize

Having realized, and imagined, the next step with regard to our potential is to plan, is to actually look at actions we can take, things we can organize, that will enable us to step into the potential that we’ve recognized and try it on as though it’s a garment.  

By planning and organizing, we start to feel the energy of that potential. And in doing so, it may be, it doesn’t feel comfortable. If it doesn’t feel comfortable, good, because it means it’s asking you to stretch, and to grow.  

If that discomfort begins to feel difficult and too challengingI would suggest that you’ve gone a step beyond where you’re ready to go, and that there is another piece of your potential for you to discover first.  

If it doesn’t feel uncomfortable but it does feel a bit of a challenge, you’ve got a bit of uncertainty, great. 

Because that means that you are stretching to be a little bit more than you thought you were. So, take some time and plan how that might work for you. And if you get stuck, go back to recognizing how you felt when you realized that potential.  

And then, how it felt to imagine where that potential might take you. It’s not a race. It’s not an examination. It’s an exploration and an opportunity. Enjoy.

  1. This makes sense to me. where it becomes tricky is when you follow an inspirational challenge that feels manageable, yet out of your comfort zone. You follow it for some time and then you reach something that feels insurmountable. But you are already in it and stopping means like it feels like a failure. Does this mean it’s not meant to be?
    Sometimes it’s hard to know when it’s time to quit and when to keep going – that ‘success’ might be closer than you think but requires new thinking or inspiration.

  2. Sometimes stopping could mean that, Jennifer. However, I don’t feel that stopping always means it’s not mean to to be. Often it’s about timing. We step forward and offer and then we wait for the response. If that response is taking time then there may be something else that we might be doing to continue to develop our path. It might even be that we’re being asked to step back and take another look – like a painter stepping back from the easel in order to see the creation being developed.
