Little Things Accumulate
“If every day you take even the tiniest action aligned to your dream;
One day you will awake and as if by magic, see your Vision become reality.”
Happy 2011 to you and best wishes for a fantastic fulfilling and joyous year!
Someone asked me recently what was the best bit of advice I could give them for helping them to create the life they wanted. I thought about it for a while and realised that the thing that makes the biggest difference in the long term is realising how the little things accumulate.
In the world we live in today we are often time pressured, rushing here and there in a mad flap to get things done, meet deadlines, stay on schedule and get to the end point when we can finally take a deep breath and relax for a bit before it all starts again.
When it comes to the issue of leading a good and happy life or solving any of the others problems that may confront us many of us want a silver bullet – the one magical answer that will resolve all issues and concerns instantaneously.
But what about the journey of discovery?
“Stuff the journey!” I hear you say “Just give me the answer and put me out of my misery!”
Don’t you hate that – the way that so many ‘gurus’ ‘healers’ ‘teachers’ sugar coat their message so you are forced to sit through 3 hours of monologue before they finally tell you that the answer is – yes – love ! Love baby! Love and a four day retreat where you will confront your…
Ooops sorry I digress…
OK so the answer – little things accumulate – Self Mastery is about training (or retraining) the self so that you can live the life you want.
This means that like going to the gym or Zumba or whatever other type of exercise you’re into – you must do it more than once and definitely more than the three times you did the last time you had a year long mega expensive gym membership!
In Self Mastery Training little things means daily practice. Manage your intention. Manage your Focus. Act and – oh yeah – love baby! Self love – love yourself unconditionally.
So, daily practice at a minimum looks like this:-
Morning – before getting out of bed set intention by asking “How do I want to BE today?”
And then “I CHOOSE to love myself unconditionally”
Night – with some quiet ‘ME time’
1. What did I do right today?
2. What am I grateful for?
You can do all that in not very much time at all and slowly but surely over a period of time, just like you get better at following those crazy Zumba moves after you’ve been to a few classes, you will find that they will simply become second nature and the little things will accumulate into something much greater!
