How crazy would it be to walk into a deli and tell them what you don’t want. After all, they’d think you were nuts if you walked in and spent half an hour telling them you didn’t want the salami, and you didn’t want the Roquefort, and you didn’t want the caviar and you didn’t want the pickles or the olives or the pastrami or the swiss. In fact they might be showing you the door. A sale in the ‘too hard he’s a nutter’ category.
But in my line of work that’s what I constantly see people do.
Worrying over all the things they don’t want…rather than getting clear on what it is they do want.
After all, the deli is just a microcosm of real life, isn’t it. Because everything that happens in the deli happens on a larger scale in life. Relationships, choices, transactions, fulfillment, disappointment. And the really great thing is when we realise we attract what we put our focus on we can do something about it.
Because if we spend our lives focusing on what we don’t want, is it any wonder it keeps turning up?
But on the other hand, life has a wonderful way of bringing to us the things we get really clear about. It just requires clarity and patience and trust.
Most people don’t realise life’s a smorgasboard. And there’s so much to enjoy.
So what do you really want out of life? And what do you need to get clear about today?
