July 8, 2020 – JOLT – Which What Wins?
|“It doesn’t matter what’s been written in your story so far. It’s how you fill up the rest of the pages that counts.”
The tendency, once we’ve tried and tried…
at something we’d like to create or bring about is to resolve to a “what’s so.”
For example, as a caucasian male who’d really like to be able to salsa like the best of them, it’s easy for me to resort to a “what’s so” about my rhythmic abilities.
For someone else who’d really like to create a successful non-profit, a bestselling book, a life of paid travel, a career of meteoric growth, or [fill in the blank of a big desire], it’s also easy to resort to a “what’s so” full of all the reasons it can’t happen.
What if we caught ourselves just at the point of resolution into “what’s so” and, instead, asked ourselves “what is yet to be discovered?”
Sure, that could sound like just another positive-thinking persistence measure but, on a number of counts, it’s a better way to go.
1) When you open yourself up to there being something you don’t know yet, and don’t even know that you don’t know it yet, there’s an opening-up energy vs a shutting-down closure
2) Behind the physicality of anything coming into existence, there’s the mental and emotional aspects that must be in place first. Asking for what is yet to be discovered can take you deeper into fundamental and foundational structures that need to be built in the unseen in order for your desire to be realized in the physical
3) Even if it is just another positive-thinking persistence measure, that seems a more life-enhancing way to go than the alternative
Face it: it’s way easier to give up and “what’s so” anything you want than to discover another level to getting it.
But the miracles that persistence has made possible throughout history didn’t come easy.
Drop “what’s so” and choose a new “what” in your greatest desire today: what is yet to be discovered here?
