“… we … limit ourselves by an undue emphasis on ‘what’ is important… at the neglect of ‘how’.” – – Moshe Feldenkrais
How many times have you caught yourself saying, “I need …” or “What the world needs is…”?
It seems to be the way of human nature. We recognize the void. We feel the longing. Yet we go no further than to wish for our dreams to be fulfilled. We spend our lives in that state of desire, unfulfilled, often raging at the powers that be, God, even life itself for the unfairness of it all. We WANT. And we expect that something or someone outside of ourselves should make it happen.
Sometimes with great luck (and not a little nagging) we do get what we want. More often, however, we don’t. Yet the power to fulfill our desires (or at least make tracks toward achieving them) lies near at hand. By shifting our focus from “wanting” to exploring the possibilities for achieving, we open ourselves, not just to the potential of having our dreams and goals fulfilled, but to empowering ourselves to be the one to make it happen.
We limit ourselves when we let desire stop us in our tracks. We blossom when we focus on how to go about achieving those desires.
How will you make your dreams happen?
