Here it is 2019 and you are still in the job you are not thrilled with. Maybe not in the relationship you had hoped for and you are wanting to be someplace else in your life. You see the “Gurus” on YouTube telling you that they have jumped that ship and are now living the life they once only dreamed about. Not you.
You Are Stuck
I know the feeling well. Been there a million times and have asked myself the same questions a million times when I was younger: “How do I make those changes they made to get to where I think I should be?” Or some version of that simple statement.
Well, the answer was actually very simple and was delivered in brute honesty from one of my most successful limousine client of mine many years ago. It’s also a formula that I have struggled with often. You put it out “there” you let the Universe know you are seeking some answers to a well-stated question. Do that, and the Universe will answer back.
Neapolitan Hill Knew It
The Godfather of all business success and life improvement guru’s and experts, the man who literally wrote the book on being successful, healthy and wealthy, Napoleon Hill discovered that that answer was used by just about every successful person he ever interviewed. It was so important that it is in 2 of the eleven keys in his guide to Wealth and Happiness. His landmark Book is often cited by people who have become “Unstuck” and became successful. The Book is Think and Grow Rich. A book I cite often in my notes and my workshops.
Putting it Out There
It has been proven that when you speak something out loud, it makes things happen. To move a thought, a dream from the subconscious to the conscious mind, makes the Universe take note, open up and respond. You literally tell the world what you want. Verbally, out loud.
When you do this, it needs to be clear and definitive. Not a general “I want a new job”. More like “I want a new job that makes use of my talents in (blank) and is (where?)” Just add the details to show you have put some thought into it!
The bad thing about doing this is you may not be ready for the answers. The answers may not be what or how you expect them. In people, news, opportunities that will suddenly present themselves to you.
Often times it means great change. new roads to be followed, new friends to be made and new relationships discovered. While also making the decision to end some current relationships and obligations.
You Need To Make The Moves
When fate starts to happen, the opportunities for the changes will present themselves. They will not make them happen, it will be like a door being in front of you that if opened will change your life. The Universe has answered your call. It has presented you with a door that could lead to some great and wonderful things for you. But it will stay closed unless you decide to take action and open the door. To follow what you put into action.
Do you take the bait, open the door of opportunity and see where it leads? Or do you let it pass you by and continue living the life you said you wanted to escape from and become the person you want to be doing what it is that you want to do? It’s up to you to make the change.
Winning by Losing
Sometimes the opportunities presented don’t seem like that big of a deal or that important. Maybe its a lead to a new person or job creation. A question someone never asked you before that suddenly sends you onto a hunt for an answer that makes you change what you are doing and start something new. You just need to be aware of those things.
When I talk to people who have not had luck with this type of journey, I usually hear the same excuse as to why it did not “work for them”. It was because the opportunity meant missing out on something they always are a part of. A Monday night bowling league. The night they watch with their spouse a certain show. Its usually because they don’t want to change a habit. Maybe a bad habit or one that has no real meaning other than its what they always did.
People value friendships sometimes to the point of losing meaningful opportunities. Good friends are there for you no matter what. Fake friends are there for you only when you are there for them. Who is running your life? Who are the most important people you really care about? These are the people you need to care for. They should be thought of when you are making life changes. Friends will want you to succeed. Fake friends will want to keep you from succeeding past their level of success in life. Choose Wisely!
Get Unstuck. Tell the Universe What You Want and Be ready for the Answer!
