Resolution - What does that mean to you?
Commitment? Being firm & determined? Resolve, a promise, a decision to do/not do something?
A Goal - A Result
And once made, do you surrender to the "How"? "How" it's going to happen, "how" it's going to come about, "how" it will show up in your life?
Like we do with a S.M.A.R.T. Goal, once created, set and placed in our Time Line, we don't care about the "How". (Btw, we do this with our Coaching Clients and at our Designing Your Destiny weekend events).
Do we make a Plan - Yes!
Do we Action it - Yes!
For most, do they surrender the "How" it's going to Exactly come into their life - nope!
The Universe will determine the "how", this is called surrendering to the attachment to the goal.
It's like mailing a letter, once you've dropped it in the box, you expect that it will be delivered. You don't necessarily know all the different people involved along the way, the actual route that the truck takes, etc. etc. etc. But you did your part, you made the Plan and wrote the letter/card, bought the stamp, addressed it, opened the mailbox and put it in.
Just stay focused on the Plan and Action it.
Obstacles, you know those obstacles that you usually run into on the way to your goal, well I believe that's the Universe assisting us. Those obstacles provide us with the opportunity to pick up the much needed resources that we hadn't thought about before that we'll need to get to our goal.
Instead of saying to yourself, (with drama), "Oh I guess it just wasn't meant to be" and giving up. Realize that these obstacles have gifts, they're called "Awareness", be thankful and adjust the Plan.
With these "Awareness's'", you realize that there's other Resources/Skills that you don't currently have but you need them if you want to achieve your goal.
Think about it, "if you never got the Awareness's how would you know that you needed something , would you ever move forward?
Ok, so you identify what you need, adjust the Plan and go and get these Resources/Skills.
Now, you can Manage your results and achieve your Goals.
Cheers to Your Health,
