“Energy is the essence of life. Every day you decide how you’re going to use it by knowing what you want and what it takes to reach that goal, and by maintaining focus.” – Oprah
I love this quote by Oprah ~ by midweek sometimes our energy can begin to lag, so I thought this was a great Wednesday picker-upper! The key to success is in knowing what you want as the rest of it can fall into place once you know that key piece.
Do you know what you want?
Today let’s choose a goal to focus our energy on ~ one that we can concretely know when we’ve achieved it. You’ve heard of manifesting, haven’t you? Let’s pick something fun to focus our energy on, a goal that makes you smile when you’ve achieved it. It doesn’t have to be big, it just has to be something that you can achieve and see the results!
Come do this with me ~ write below a small goal for yourself. It always helps to write it and let others know so that we can cheer you on! If you’re in the mood to share, please do it below in the comments!
I’ll start ~ my goal is to finish cleaning the basement in my house. We started 3 weeks ago and I want it done. So my goal is to have it done in 2 more weeks. There is almost 20 years of accumulation down there that has to be weeded through and thrown out. For me, I like to save things so it is hard for me to part with objects that have sweet memories for me. But it’s time now to let go and allow the energy of good working objects to find a new home.
“It is our mind, and that alone, that imprisons us or sets us free.” – Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
I like this quote because I think it is true. I believe that sometimes our mind controls us and we must learn to train ourselves to control our mind. What we believe, many times comes to fruition ~ when we declare we can or can’t do something, it sets in motion either limitations or a limitlessness to what we can accomplish. Haven’t you ever heard the expression that “it’s all in your head?”
So today, watch what you are thinking. Is your mind running you or are you the boss of your mind? Are you allowing your mind to say you can’t do something or are you training your mind with the power of positive thinking to know that you can do something? It’s your choice!
