Intentional Certainty Brings Clarity…Even On a Trip to New York!

November 4, 2018

Most recently, I was in New York.

I went to New York with a very good friend, and we had planned to travel together because he wanted to go on my next New York trip. So we did it! I thought. I thought it would be fun to go with someone who lived in New York for most of his life. He’s fun to be with and I knew he’d suggest some fun things to do and fun experiences.

And then, I found out about a week before our trip, he had met someone from out of the country and they had planned to meet while on this New York trip. He told me he would meet up with me between his visits with this gal – they were going to have a fun little love fest the five days we were in NY!!

That just did not feel in alignment, to say the least!

I thought, Wow, why are we on the same flight to New York? Why are we going at the same time if he’s just going to “fit me in?” I felt “dissed,” once I got over the shock of this new information.

So he canceled all of the “fitting in” when I shared my feelings about it. And truly, it wouldn’t have mattered if it had been a love fest, or anything else – my intentional assumption was that we were going to do our own things during the day, and then connect in the late afternoon or early evening to meet up and enjoy each other and the city.

Ask and It Is Given – Inspired Action

That’s what I love about repetition – when you read the same book again and again, you pick up different things each times based on where you are in your life, how you see the world, your growth since you last read it, and so many other factors. Read More

Are you “giving up” or “surrendering” to your business?

October 17, 2017

What is the difference between “giving up” and “surrendering” to new possibilities for your business?

I had the most interesting conversation with a friend the other day. He was talking about “surrendering” to what happens in life and how that is so different than giving up.

Immediately, I thought of entrepreneurs who have given up on reaching their dreams, creating financial success, or of becoming an influencer in social media.

And, I found this topic to be of such interest to me, that I ended up writing about it in the chapter of my book titled “Intentions.” Let’s just say that is a working title for now.

So, here are my insights… Read More
