Don’t block your own path!
Build your kingdom, instead of blocking your path.
Garret J White
We all have goals and dreams
We all know what we need to do.
We also most of the time know what we need not to do.
Yet the what not to do is what we find ourselves doing the most.
We order the supplys to build the kingdom then we put a road block in the middle of the path so they can’t get there.
So we are left with the dreams in our heads and the obstructing behaviours in reality.
This conflicting behaviour is destroying us.
Let’s do the work
Let’s build those castles in our mind.
Blind to Possibilities
When we dwell on a problem, we get stuck in the cycle of the problem, our perspective is just the problem and other problems.
Remaining in the problem, blind us to possibilities.
We need to shift this perspective.
To shift the perspective we need to walk the block and look at it from everyone’s point of view.
And find the desired outcome.
Without shifting the perspective we just remain stuck in a pit and we’ll never grow.
When it’s not on your doorstep
What do you do?
Do you wait until another event rolls around closer to you or do you travel the distance.
I’ve been to several events 100s of miles away from where I live, long train or coach journeys, hotels etc.
At the same time in Facebook groups I see people asking will this event be in X place or y place…
Because they don’t want to travel.
Yet even if it was on there doorstep, would they go?
I don’t know… but the question is if its really worth something to you
How far are you willing to go?
Signs are no good if you dont follow them
If your looking for a sign the chances are you’ll find one because your seeking it,
Kind of like when you just get a new car and everyone seems to be driving the same one as you.
For a short moment in time I wanted to learn how to street dance (I think step up had just come out or something)
I remember saying if I see a sign I’ll join a club or something.
The very next day I saw a sign, it had probably been there for years but I wasn’t looking for it then
But I didn’t join I probably went home and played GTA or something
We’ve probably ask for and seen loads of signs in our lifetimes but we ignore them or don’t follow through.
Asking for a sign is probably just another form of procrastination,
Yeah I’ll do it if…
If we really wanted to do something we wouldn’t need to wait for a sign.
We book a holiday and all we do is look forward to it,
We imagine ourselves sat on a beach with a cocktail, or seeing a world famous site whilst we go about our boring daily lives
We get excited about going to a party or a meal with so and so and once again this consumes our mind
But the time in between planning the thing and actually doing the thing matters just as much
Yeah you may be looking forward to your holiday or whatever but are you not equally looking forward to another day.
Instead of daydreaming about what you could be doing in 2 weeks time you could be enjoying the taste of your food or the sites around you
The things we do in between are the important stuff because they take up the majority of our lives and to be honest they’re pretty amazing if you learn to appreciate them
