I am devoted to helping people become more of what is possible for them. My commitment, actually my passion, is to help people become more fully alive.

Muddied Thinking Brings Muddied Results

Have you ever noticed how much undefined thinking and visualization we carry with us daily in the vapors of our mind?  Often we read “if you know what you want you can have it.”  How can we get clarity as to what it is that we want?

Right now as I speak to you my mind is going in circles about what I should have achieved today but did not, as well as several other topics coming to the fore that I’d like to share with you. So the buzzing in my mind are bits and pieces of things or “shoulds,” therefore I am not as mindful or clear as I could be in imparting this information to you, Forgive me?

When in this place if I stop, reflect and pull out my journal it is extremely helpful. I find journaling to be a powerful tool in getting the whirlwind of thoughts out of the vapors. The writing down helps me see in concrete form what is going on within. At this point it is easier to prioritize, let go of the nonessential, in order to focus on what is really important or what is really desired.

Sometimes the “stopping” is an important part of the process, allowing space to know ourselves at a deeper level and recognizing fears that may be keeping us buzzing or busy.

In my latest book and workbook, Journey into a Passionate Life, there is a chapter on busyness and how we may use it as a way of preventing us from getting what we really want in our lives. The pertinent chapter is “Into the Forest.”
