One of the best things about being in transition is the opportunity to revisit priorities, goals and vision. Recently, huge budget cuts in my program have forced me to reflect, adjust, realign and get ready for some big changes ... both professionally and personally. Although the cuts could be viewed as devastating, they can also be viewed as huge growth opportunites for all involved ... myself included.
Quite honestly, there is something liberating about forced transition. I've had lots of things come my way recently ... people asking me to get on board with new projects I'm not totally interested in pursuing, my parents suggesting I find more traditional work, a job opportunity that is really interesting but doesn't feel quite right, an exciting potential collaboration that floating out there with no solid foundation. So many thing to take action on ... while my inner voice that is gently nudging me to get quiet, reflect and pay attention.
I am an avid student of the subconscious mind, the Law of Attraction and the power of positive thinking. I am also an advocate of practicing gratitude. Today I am grateful for my teacher and mentor Jack Canfield and his most recent blog post about putting the action in attraction.
I will be spending some much needed time on the beach this week listening to that inner voice. I will be using Jack's article and his Success Principles to help me adjust my vision, adjust my goals and develop a new action strategy based on new circumstances. I will also be running some things by my support systems ... my Master Mind group, my coach and accountability partner ... to keep me motivated, connected, accountable, peacefu and on purpose.
Transitioning On Purpose through these uncertain times feels so much better than assuming the victim role that I've known so well.
As Jack points out, "action" is the last six letters in the "Law of Attraction" . It's time to go pack for the beach
