Lesson For the Day:
From: “The Wellness Warrior” Blog today – that really applies to how I’ve been living the last week – time to hit it again!
It’s like this: we all have goals, dreams and hopes for the future. Will you achieve them? Well, that depends on two things: your intention, and your behaviour(s).
Your intention is the future you’re creating in your head. Some people call this ‘manifestation’ or ‘visualization’ (The Secret! The Secret!!!). It’s important to be really clear about what you’d like – as detailed as possible – so that the universe can help you with your request. In other words, I want to be thin and rich is not as powerful, detailed or specific as I want to lose xxx kilos in a healthy way, I want my business to make profits of $xxxxx per annum and import French luxury products that no one else has within the next 12 months.
But it’s no good to just imagine yourself stick-thin, operating your perfect business. You’ve actually got to get up each morning and undergo the right behaviours – physically, emotionally and spiritually – to bring it about.
This is where congruency comes in: do your behaviours match your intention? If you want to lose weight but haven’t properly committed to any healthy eating regimes and/or exercise programs, then you’re not truly mirroring your intentions. If you want to import unique French products, but you can’t be bothered to undergo Internet research, refuse to save money for flights to Paris, and keep telling yourself ‘This is a big gamble and will probably never work’, it simply ain’t gonna happen! And what do most people do when their dreams don’t come true? Blame other people and events, and refuse to accept personal responsibility for their own self-sabotaging!
It’s so simple. Your life is never going to come into perfect alignment if your intentions and behaviors contradict each other.
Another way of putting this is to talk about living your life with integrity. Do your personal relationships, jobs, finances and general health-and-happiness match your core values? Or are there decisions you’ve made in your life that don’t really resonate with your gut feeling… but you keep allowing them? There’s never been a better time for a spring clean. It takes a little courage, but if there’s people in your life, various commitments or personal habits that are ‘bad’ or ‘wrong’ for you, it’s OK to ditch them. What’s really inside your heart? It’s time to make that congruent with your reality.
