As you move along your path to the achievement of your goals there will be times when nothing happens. Everything seems to come to a standstill and there is no movement forward. You become disenchanted, unmotivated and your goals seem so far away and unattainable.
This is the most dangerous part of your mission. This is the time where most people quit as they feel it just won’t happen to them. You have to be aware when this is happening so that you too don’t succumb and quit too. This is momentary pause is not a signal to you that nothing is happening and its time to find another way.This pause is the moment where you need to re-gather and prepare as it’s when things are about to really fly for you.
I’ve been on over 100 hundred flights and still the scariest part for me is just after take-off when the engines seem to cut off and the plane seems to stall and I think that it is about to fall out of the sky. I panic every single time. But every single time after that momentary pause, the plane re-gathers, flattens out and moves forward. And every single time I have arrived safely to my destination.
What do you do then when you arrive at this moment? How do you overcome the fear and the thought that your goals are about to drop out of the skies and aren’t going to reach them?
First recognize what is happening. You are just having a pause to gather your strength. So gather your strength. Focus on why you are doing what you are doing and then do something. That something maybe just to put everything to the side while you take some time out. There is nothing wrong with that. It’s better to have a temporary time out than a permanent one. During your time out enjoy life. Do something fun that will ignite your passion again and remind you of what you want to do and are capable of.
At the moment when I let fear overcome my rational thoughts and I think the plane is going to fall from the sky I have to use all my strength to talk myself around to being calm. I’ll usually hold (squeeze) Craig’s hands to rely on his strength, affirm over and over again what I know to be true- all will be okay and I will get to where I want to go safely, if I just have enough faith. And there lies the key; having faith.
Have faith in what you are doing. Have faith in your ability to get where you need to go, even if you have to have some time out to get there.
During your momentary pause if you just go with it, you will come out refreshed and with even more power to excel your growth. Just stay with your goals. I’m just coming out of a momentary pause. Several big things have been surrounding my life lately- my daughter and husband’s birthdays, a house move, my husband’s parents visiting from Australia and so with that trips away and so forth. (Hence the absence of my blog posts recently).
At times I felt overwhelmed and frustrated by it all and my goals seemed pushed away. I felt all momentum slipping and with all this came the feelings that it was all to much and I just couldn’t do it. Luckily for me now, I recognize what this is and so I know what to do. First I accept it, then enjoy and deal with the other things going on in my life, do as much as I can do well and with enthusiasm and then get excited because now I know my plane is just re-gathering and is about to take off!!
