Ultimately all of these goals, I’ve noticed, are about releasing resistance…I mean if I have an ideal job, go to bed happy and wake up happy, I’m not getting in my own way and I can recieve all the good that is available to me. 21 months ago

“To step out of your own way is to practice the discipline of refraining from judging something you don’t like as bad, so as to stay open to the inevitable good that must, by definition of Source, be present in every situaion and condition. To step out of your own way is to do your job and let the Universe do its job.”—Sonia M. Miller, The Attraction Distraction 2 years ago
Below is an important quote from the book Real World Time Management. It explains why I must really want my goals, be aligned with them. Too many times I’ve gone after things that deep down inside, I didn’t really want. And this is silly when there are so many things in this world that I do want. The key is alignment.
“There are often downsides associated with goals. If you want a promotion, you’re rewarded with money, increased authority and other benefits. On the other hand, the responsibility and attendant headaches are usually greater…what would you gain by not achieving your particular goal? If you don’t want the promotion in the first place because you like your job, and the only reason you want the promotion is the money, there’s a big reward for failure. You get to keep the job you like and avoid the one you don’t…you’re probably not going to do your best in a job you dislike, which may put the extra money at risk. Is there a different promotion you should be chasing that would allow you to get the money as well as the work you enjoy?”
