Plant! -- And Accept The Consequences!

Welcome to Weekly Wisdoms. Last week I found a new way to communicate over the internet with audio. After you listen, if you'd like to try it for yourself, click here for a chance to make your own free audio postcard... Too cool! Have fun! What a busy week! The lumber package for the barn is on the way. Malcolm is here to saw up the rest of the logs for the siding. We are building a new riding arena. Three new potential clients. And we planted 3 acres of grass! Actually we put down twelve thousand pounds of lime, fertilizer, grass seed and clover seed. I feel like a farmer! I woke up this morning thinking about all that seed and what it might look like next year.

We spent the summer getting ready for this day. Land was cleared, logs carried off, limbs and stumps burned; sticks, roots and rocks collected and removed. A tractor was used for hours to turn the dirt and level the ground, making sure the water would run off into the creeks. Now there is nothing more I can do. I have to give up worrying about whether or not the grass will come up, what it will look like, or if I have done it right. Now I must have faith in myself and in the Universe that we have done all we can to make this dream of pastures full of thick green grass for the horses a reality. And I have to wait until spring to see it! It seems to me that much of what we do in life is like this. We have the choice of how we prepare for something.

We have the choice to give all we have toward a dream or goal, but at some point we have to give up all ownership of that dream and realize that whether or not it happens is beyond us. I think of it like this? If I give all I have and whatever I am working on does not come to pass, or looks different than I imagined, then it is perfect. It is perfect because that is what was created for me. If I want it different than I have received it, I have the choice to work toward that change or not. I think many people never start on a dream, goal or project because they have no faith in themselves or the Universe. I realize one of my strengths is my faith that anyone can do anything they set their mind to; including you. Is there something you really want to do? Just get started. Enjoy it while you do it. Give it all you have. Then let go of the consequences and understand the result is perfect! As always ,Your online Coach and Friend,Miami PhillipsFounder of Creative Masterminds Email:

Quotation of the Week

All that is necessary to break the spell of inertia and frustration is this: Act as if it were impossible to fail. That is the talisman, the formula, the command of right-about-face which turns us from failure towards success. - Dorothea Brande -
