We often think 100% of the work needed to build our dreams or to advance forwards is to be done from outside of ourselves.
Example: We get more busy doing things, moving around and adding more and more on to the to-do list.
We set our mind on something make a quick plan and off we go!
We are more likely to become more frustrated and become unhappy with the results of what we first intended to achieve. By being so focused on outer things
What's going on in the inside?
We are under so much pressure to have, do and be. The pressure, even more, illuminated and intensified by the joys of social media and advertisements broadcasting at us over and over again every day.
With so much coming at us and into our headspace, we are more quickly to become out of sink with ourselves and become easily influenced by dictatorships saying have, do and be.
Somewhere in all of this is a little inner voice is saying 'hey remember me.'
Change the priorities
If what goes in then comes out, we really need to take a major LOOK at what are we putting in over and over again every day.
When manifesting your dreams or advancing forwards 98% of what needs to be done should start from within you.
Example: You get handed the keys to a bobby dazzler of a motor, with no strings attached it's yours. Its market value comes in at a whopping 100,000k.
You drive the car looking super swish, friends and family think your the bee's knees.
The outer you is looking on form, some wish they had what you have.
Meanwhile, you're unable to keep up with the insurance payments and daily fuel cost, this new asset is starting cause you new debts. You also have other financial challenges looming around in the background and relationship difficulties with a loved one.
The inner you is not looking good, worry and fear beings to eat you.
We each have a lifetime, none of us perfect, none of us challenge free. Set your radar to work from the inside out, it may take some time, it may not be easy, it will be TOTALLY worth it.
When you're living out the things that bring you peace, joy and enrich your way of living, you know you're on the right track.
What does winning look like to you?
