Mike Dooley says – you know what happens just before something big is about to happen?
So if you feel that nothing is happening, celebrate for it is just about to burst through!
Have patience. Yes, it’s the hardest thing to do when you want something so bad you can almost taste it.
Still, have patience.
If you find yourself procrastinating, don’t sweat it. Procrastination can actually be good and a big part of the creative process.
Often something you thought would take a few days or weeks can turn into months. You could be getting a new website designed and go back and forth for ages with nothing really fitting. It can seem like endlessly treading water as you wonder why it isn’t all just falling into place.
You stay patient and trusting because you understand something of how the Universe & Creation works.
Through it all, you keep following your intuition. You clarify and refine your vision, mission and purpose over and over again until it finally starts taking a shape that makes your heart skip a beat.
You know you’re on the right track, you’re getting closer.
You meditate on your vision, you keep hitting pitches and taking Inspired Action, baby steps in sometimes completely unrelated directions.
You act with faith, get started and keep going even when it seems like nothing is happening, with your eyes firmly fixed on your vision. Tweak along the way, keep tweaking, moving, adjusting course as you go along.
You see, sometimes, you just have to get going and trust that your ducks will fall into line. If you spend all your time trying to get them in a row befoe you start, it may never happen.
And yet, at other times, you need to follow your intuition and “procrastinate” on certain things.
Don’t try to force action if it’s not feeling good. In that case especially, trust that there is a reason behind the procrastination, figure out what it is and then take appropriate (in)action as the case may be.
All the while keeping the Golden Rule in mind – Do What Feels Good.
It won’t be long before you see evidence that it really WAS all happening perfectly behind the scenes. Soon you’ll be too busy celebrating and reaping your rewards to ever remember a time that it wasn’t.
And the days of “procrastinating” will make perfect sense.
