It happened in the stroke of a moment. Instead of fearing what I can't control or assuming it's out to get me, I thought to myself... "what if that feeling of the unknown, the unseen, represents a benevolent force... a force conspiring in my favor?"
Nothing changed on the outside. But inside, everything changed. I relaxed immediately. I felt safe. I felt comfortable in my own skin, regardless of my surroundings.
Since that stroke of insight, I've regained tremendous faith in myself. I've carved out a powerful vision for the next steps in my career and personal development, and I'm confident that I'll be successful.
Prior to this insight, I was somewhat plagued by worries... about financial stability, the health of my physical body, the direction of my career. That's just the short list. I found myself dwelling on worst-case scenarios, and like an obsession, those possibilities weighed heavily on me.
While worst-case is often a real possibility, it's often not the reality... so why obsess over it?
This doesn't mean I don't calculate risks or consider the possibility of losing something valuable while pursuing my goals. Those factors are weighed into my choices. But the risk of loss or failure doesn't drive my choices.
Instead, my choices are driven by the field of possibility... fueled with imagination, creativity and enthusiasm. Every attempt I make in the direction of what's possible helps me to further refine my efforts, carve my vision and grow.
