In so many ways we inhibit our progress in life by not extending ourselves beyond what is routine and comfortable. As a result, we do not maximize our potential. The unstoppable entrepreneur is a person of a different make-up who is not willing to settle for less than is possible.
A possibility thinker for sure, but this person goes way beyond that, and makes those possibilities come to life. This is by no mystical or magical means, but by recognizing and acting upon the true inner genius which resides within us all.
Our Habitual Self
As we journey through our lifetimes we develop habits and routines that get pretty much set in stone. This is just the way we do things on an automatic basis. It gets to the point that we do not even realize that there are any other options.
In some circles, this is called getting “stuck in a rut”. With job and family responsibilities, we feel obligated to continue in our daily routines, often failing to give little or any thought to the childhood dreams now buried deep inside of us. We have transformed ourselves from an “anything is possible” type person to a “better not rock the boat” individual.
For many, this is how it stays over an entire lifetime unless there is some sort of spark which ignites our inner fire and causes us to “remember” who we are and who we desire to become. At this point we are faced with a bit of conflict as our habitual self does not desire to let go, and allow us to explore greener pastures.
Our habitual self has an enormous amount of strength as it is being fed by our inner reservoir of power which is capable of being used in any way we choose. We can use this power to keep our habitual self in place, or we can designate its use to break through the barriers to our freedom and joy. It really does come down to a simple choice, once we “recognize” that we have that choice.
Awareness is a Wonderful Thing
There is a point in time for us all when we experience enough frustration, pain, and regret that we become aware of a tiny spark of light within our being that is attempting to breakthrough. Often, this light is ignored and pushed aside. But when and if it is recognized, we become curious enough to see where it leads.
This is the type of awareness we require to explore the alternatives which currently exist, but which we have been unaware. We have been acting as the “victim” rather than the “creator” of our lives.
“Do you feel bored and stuck in a rut? Is work drudgery? If so, you are spending far too much time bemoaning your fate and how the universe is not cooperating with your desires. Be present with and in your current situation.”
When we are present in our current situation we are able to make any necessary changes within our current mindset or conditioning. We allow our limiting thoughts to surface so that they can be recognized. Once recognized, and not denied, they will merely fade away as we are not supplying them with emotional fuel any longer.
Now some thought forms based on past pain and emotional trauma which was severe may linger much longer. But once we are “willing” to allow them to surface, we are able to confront them head-on and “release” the emotional charge over time. In certain instances, this is immediate, while at other times it requires a series of repetitions until the charge is released.
Once that occurs we are mentally and emotionally free which allows us to enjoy “being” alive. We have arrived at that magical moment where the “present moment is enough”. No longer are we striving for something to get and somewhere to be in order to feel whole and to fill our the emptiness deep inside.
Once we have freed ourselves from this emotional baggage, we are able to operate at a much higher level. We have ascended from the competitive to the creative plane. Our intuitive forces are in full gear to support our reasoning and logical faculties so that they work in harmony to maximize our results in every area of our lives.
This can be applied to both our personal and business lives to make significant progress in increasing our effectiveness in making a positive difference in the lives of others. This includes family, friends, business clients, and colleagues, as well as the person we meet on the street.
There is no limit to what we can do and be at this point. We have positioned ourselves to create empires, but not only empires of a financial kind. We are able to make a significant impact in all areas of humanity including philanthropy, productivity, artistry, personal freedom, and spirituality.
“Everything you need you already have. You are complete right now, you are a whole, total person, not an apprentice person on the way to someplace else. Your completeness must be understood by you and experienced in your thoughts as your own personal reality.”
We are complete within ourselves right this very moment. There is nowhere to go or nothing to get. It is our responsibility to dissolve the cloud cover that conceals our Inner Genius.
The Journey Continues
There is a wonderful quote from the book “Illusions”: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah by Richard Bach.
“Here is a test to find whether your mission on Earth is finished: If you’re alive it isn’t.”
That kind of says it all. We have many more journeys to take and adventures to experience. We are all teachers and students “waking each other up” to our magnificence and brilliance.
We have that “something” within us that is never satisfied with the status quo. It is always seeking fuller expression and expansion into new heights of achievement and service. Given this impulse to expand, it is our duty and responsibility to share our insights and creativity with others, so that they can emulate our progress.
We are continually growing into new areas never experienced before, although ignited and based on our former progress. These new conditions provide the stimulus for even further growth and expansion.
Allowing the Light to Appear
Once we have removed sufficient cloud cover the light emerges to brighten our path. The light was always there. It was merely hidden from our sight and awareness by our very own projection of our beliefs, thoughts, and feelings which created an attitude of limitation and scarcity.
This type of mindset projects a perceptual view of ourselves, others, and the world that is not accurate, but is very true to us. Since we see it in our environment, we believe it is so, not realizing that what we are seeing merely reflects our belief. Quite a “mind twist” indeed.
Through a series of consistent processes of gradually removing the impediments created by our damaged mindset, we are able to clear our perception up to a point where we get a more accurate view of things. We are no longer in the competitive plane of defending, judging, and attacking, but have entered the creative realm of extending, accepting, and forgiving. We forgive ourselves as well as others.
This is a process that usually occurs over time as a result of our consistent efforts to clear away the debris of beliefs which used to protect us, but now no longer serve us at all. The light has finally broken through to illuminate our everyday existence.
At this point, we are not only unstoppable entrepreneurs but unstoppable in every department and area of our lives. Our family life, social life, physical health, and spiritual state all reflect this enhanced point of view. We are truly blessed, and now we are finally aware that we Are.
In Peace & Love within the Light,
