Knock Knock! Who’s there? Success!

Do you open the door with excitement? With expectancy? With gratitude?

Or

You run and hide? Pretend no one is home? You feel scared?

Often I meet people and they tell me that they want Success and then they do everything to make sure it remains a “want”. I confess, I myself have been guilty of it. For a long time, I liked the idea of Success but not the feeling of it. After all, who did I think I was to have success? I would list all sorts of reasons to justify where I was – why I wasn’t successful the way I wanted to be. There was a lot of wanting, but the wanting didn’t turn into that intense desire for a long time.

Why?

Because I spent my time “trying” to get there. And when someone would ask the question “why am I not there yet?”. I would explain all the trying I had been doing. I would think of all the reasons why I couldn’t succeed and what was wrong (so much was wrong) and wasn’t working and how it wasn’t my fault. On and on I would go with the fear and the reasons as to why I wasn’t successful in my mind. I would criticise myself constantly for feeling like a failure (Even though, those who know me know that I am not a failure and they probably will list a whole lot of things I had been successful at already).

My boyfriend introduced me to Star Wars. My favourite character – Yoda. Yoda said to Luke Skywalker, “Do or Do not, there is no try”. LIGHTBULB MOMENT!!! I finally got it, I had to give up trying and operate from the state of Being of that which I desired. I did a lot of clean up of the negative emotions and limiting beliefs and decisions and I know I am well on the path to success. I now do accept I am successful already, in a lot of ways. As Abraham Lincoln said, “I will prepare and some day, my chance will come”. Success will come, when I am ready for it.

And now that I am ready for it (that’s a success in itself), I will open the door with grace, gratitude and joy.
