Something to think about in 2022by Holly Lanesmith
Now that we’re in 2022, if you’ve done what I’ve suggested you do, you’ve created a vision or some type of plan for the year ahead.
If you haven’t yet done that, I encourage you to do so!
But what I also want to suggest is this: don’t get so hung up on the plan that if it fails, you surrender the goal.
This is a mistake many of us tend to make. We create a plan for ourselves to achieve a goal. And that plan includes specific steps to take.
Oftentimes, though, here’s what tends to happen: when the steps don’t lead us to our goal, or when we fail to take those steps, we tell ourselves that the goal is unachievable or that we aren’t capable of being, doing, or having all that we desire.
But that is a lie! I used to make this mistake in my personal and professional life. But it didn’t serve me in any way, shape, or form. Instead, it made me feel stuck.
…Until I found a solution: I started being open to changing my plan.
I want to encourage you to be open to changing your plan this year.
Because like I said in an earlier email, the law of vibration tells us that the universe is in a constant state of change.
So the plan you have now might be good today, but you might have to change it in a few months, depending on the changes that take place.
So as you venture off into the new year, I want to encourage you to cast a vision, to create a plan, but most importantly to be open to changing that plan if it becomes necessary.
It doesn’t mean you have to change the ultimate goal, you just might have to change the steps deemed necessary to get to your goal. And perhaps you won’t even need to change the plan.
What I’m encouraging you to do is to simply be open to changing it if it becomes necessary.
Does that make sense?
Trust me friend, one of the biggest lessons I’ve learned over the years has been to become open to changing plans.
And ultimately, remember - while having a plan is important, don’t forget to enjoy the present moment as well. Because what we have is the here and now.
I’ll leave you with this quote that perfectly describes the past, the present, and the future:
The past is a memory, the future is imagination, and the present is a gift.
