About the Author:
Driving to work the week before Christmas (my “Morning Moving Meditation” which is what I call my commuting quiet time), I was thinking about the year ahead. Thinking about what I wanted to achieve, what I wanted to call forward in my life, what I needed to let go, what needed to shift…the usual end of year processing for me.
While I was mulling over what is to be, I felt a nudge in my spirit that simply said “Sacrifice”. I just let that word – “Sacrifice” – sit in my spirit, in my mind without questioning why it came to me or what it might mean.
I thought about what I wanted for myself in 2011 (and beyond), how I wanted to show up, what I wanted for my friends/family/community; what I wanted in my career/business, relationships. I thought about those things and “sacrifice”.
And Spirit began to connect the dots for me – again. (Dontcha just LOVE when that happens?)
See, I am visualizing big things for myself. Big things for family, community. Big, bold, beautiful shifts in my personal development, in my relationships, in my career, in my health…in every facet of my life.
And for those BIG, BOLD, BEAUTIFUL SHIFTS to take place…for me to reach the next level, a NEW level of SACRIFICE is going to be necessary.
That “thing” that I want? That “thing”that YOU want?
That new/renewed relationship? That job? That career? That business? That improved health status (physical, mental & otherwise)? That degree? That trip? That published book? That house? That car? That improved sense of self? That clarity? That peace? That purpose?
Yeah, “THAT” thing…whatever “THAT” represents to you. That “thing” is going to require you to be on YOUR “new” new.
THAT “NEW” new is going to require a new level of sacrifice, a deeper level of sacrifice. A new level of discipline, of focus, of strategy. A new level of commitment.
Think about it…if you could get to what it is you truly desire as you are right now….wouldn’t you already have it?
So…if you truly want to GO up…what are you willing to GIVE UP?
Think about that…that new “new” and what you need to do to show up and claim it. You can make all the resolutions you want but unless you are willing to put in the work – a NEW level of work – you won’t reap the benefits.
The choice is yours: RESOLUTIONS…or RESULTS
I know which one I’M choosing.
Results Rock! So do you! Take action daily that helps you create the RESULTS you truly desire. You’re worth it.
