November 2009 Inspirational Message From Marisa Pell
So think about how you are beating around the bush this month and be honest with yourself about what it is that YOU have to just SIT DOWN AND START (or finish). I know for me — the one thing I put off is cleaning and organizing. However, if there is something else I really want to avoid doing, you can bet money you will find me CLEANING to avoid having to get the other work done! Can you relate?
The hardest part is just SITTING DOWN AND BEGINNING. The rest will flow. Most likely this relates to personal goals surrounding you this month.
Now onto career. I received a question from a client on Facebook about needing some insight about getting work in today’s economy and I promised to incorporate this into this month’s inspirational message.
Sometimes, energetically, we place our fate into other people’s hands. The belief is that our abundance is “out of our control” and that other people need to provide us with the opportunities to make our dreams happen — or else we are s%^& out of luck.
This is an illusion that gives all of your power away — and sometimes gives you an excuse to be lazy. Is laziness a character defect? Yes, in some instances. However, some of you may not make the effort because you are afraid of success! Yes, I know it sounds absurd. Some don’t believe they DESERVE happiness, and are more comfortable when times are tough. Where do you fit in?
Also, you may become afraid of actually being uncomfortable because something is AN EFFORT. We are used to instant gratification. Everything in our world is fast. If we want FAST FOOD, we go through a drive thru. How quick are we to get tempered when we have to wait a few minutes for the drive thru attendant to ask for our order? As a culture, we don’t like to WAIT for much. Why should we? We have most of what we want at our fingertips — look at technology today.
The question becomes: How much are you in control anyway? If you are in line with the universe, amazing things can happen. If your will (what you WANT for yourself) is stronger, you can definitely make a mess of the opportunities that are meant for you.
Think about this: Could it be possible that the universe has things in store for you that are much BETTER than you could think of yourself? Reflect on all the things that you thought were “BAD” that happened in your life, and now look back on all the GREAT events that happened as a result of that door closing. Would you have people or a job in your life now if a door didn’t close at some point?
Sometimes if you don’t listen to the gentle urges of the universe to end something, it is ended for you. It no longer serves you. Don’t leave cat claws on the wall trying to hold on to it!!
Also, why wait for others to give you the “break” you need? Every business has been created from an inspired IDEA.
Some questions to ask yourself:
- What is your idea?
- Do you have something new and inventive to share with the world?
- What are some creative ways for you to make some money while you are waiting for a company to hire you?
- What did you want to do when you were a kid?
- What tasks bring you positive energy?
- If you could make a full time living doing one thing, what would it be?
- Is this something you have the ability to create?
- Are you anxiously waiting for SOMEONE ELSE to do it for you?
- What are you procrastinating about?
- Make a goal list for yourself for the next 6 months (written not typed).
- If looking to get hired: think of creative ways to get employer’s attention. Don’t rely on e-mail submissions.
- Find out the weaknesses in the company and propose a plan to meet their needs
- EXTRA EFFORT IS REQUIRED!!!
Perhaps you have answered these questions, and now are asking. Ok, then what do I have to do? Don’t get overwhelmed! Take one small step in your desired direction. Maybe do a little online research or check out a book on the topic. Anything will help you to move forward and put the intention out there.
Worrying will do nothing.
All my best!!
