Choose Plan B

Plan A is a predictable and linear path. Plan A is the option that makes the most sense initially. It is the first route you’d take, the first solution to any problem, and the first option on any platter.

It is not until you are in the weeds of Plan A that you realize it’s not working or at least is not your forever solution. Cue in Plan B. Plan B’s path may not be as linear as Plan A, but goes surprisingly smoother than Plan A. In other words, it’s a little more curvy and a little less bumpy.

I feel the need to clarify one thing: Plan A is not useless and is in fact very much needed! Plan A needs to be tried to get to what really works: Plan B. Plan B would not make sense without first giving Plan A a go. You have to know Plan A does not work so that you can cross it out and go to the next option.

So by all means, do Plan A. It is often the only option you can see at the starting line anyway. But watch out for extreme attachment to Plan A. Keep your goal in mind and remember there’s many ways you can get there (even if only one makes sense right now). You wont be able to see Plan B clearly if you are married to Plan A.

If you are in the trenches of Plan A and notice that things aren’t working out where you are at, you have a few options:

  1. Stick to Plan A at all costs, and wait until Plan A drops you. Just a bit of a warning: when Plan A drops you, it won’t be softly.
  2. Take one foot out of Plan A and feel around for what else is there. You wont be able to see Plan B clearly because you still are at least partially invested in Plan A.
  3. Choose Plan B. Drop Plan A, and listen for the adventure Plan B has for you.

In any case, you will eventually end up at your Plan B and once there, you will learn that it has been the best option all along.

Join me for the Mindful Glow Up #3 this Sunday on FB/IG Live where we will start to focus in on the goals that we need to focus on now.

Stay Open to Life!

Can You Imagine?

Our minds are capable of so much, but as we get older we stop actively using the mind in all the ways it can work for us. Remember, when we were kids, we would imagine the most grandiose ideas? We’d say, “I am going to be a firefighter,” then continue to imagine this story play out fully in our minds to the point where we can act out the entire life of a firefighter with just a water hose. You could almost feel the heat of the fire surrounding you as you save lives of families and cats. If it weren’t for the age restriction and written exam, you’d be turning in the application after nap time.

Our goals may surely change since then. But we tend to also stop exercising this wonderous imagination ability of our minds. Visualization meditation allows us to tap back into this forgotten skill of ours. This tool is powerful because it allows room for manifestation by focusing on images of a realized goal. If you can’t imagine yourself accoplishing a goal then the chances of it becoming a reality is unfathomable and much less likely. You increase your chances tremndously just by imagining your life completely fulfilled.

Do it with me; imagine yourself completely accomplished. What do you look like? Where are you? Who are you impacting? What is surrounding you? What is happening around you? Paint the picture fully and sit with it. That’s all there is to it.

We will play more with visualization as we work through our life vision during the Mindful Glow Up TODAY at 10AM – free on FB/IG Live.

Stay Blessed!
