I wish I had time to meander through the days and hours and minutes of the week. The truth is, I could write pages and pages only to come around to this one preposterous statement:
Nothing is impossible. Nothing.
I know this because this week I pushed myself harder than I have in a long time. I got lots of beautiful additions made to the website (wander around–see what’s new!), kept the house in order, never forgot to pick up the kids once and managed to lay and clean a 200 square foot rug in my 160 square foot bedroom using only an exact-o knife, a scrub brush, vacuum cleaner and sheer Will. Oh, I also dragged every piece of furniture out of the room or over the waves and waves of uneven carpet. Did I mention that I did this single-handedly? If you don’t think that’s a big deal, take a look at the picture I posted below of four men with the right equipment doing it in an utterly empty room and think again!
But here’s the best part: It needed to be done. I wanted it done. I’d been visualizing the end result for months. Once I stopped whining about how I couldn’t do it, what a pain it was going to be to do it, how I didn’t want to do it . . . I just did it. And now? My bedroom has been transformed into the all-purpose (bedroom, office, temple) space I dreamt about having months ago.
I could wax poetic about all the fancy tech stuff I learned this week as well, but the point’s been made:
Give yourself some time to whine and complain. Moan and groan. Have a little tantrum if you need to (I did!). Then, roll up your sleeves and begin. Don’t stop until you arrive at your goal.
The result is that you get done what needs to be done. You get the satisfaction and pure, unadulterated Pride of having done it.
It doesn’t matter if the task at hand is fitting in your daily meditation, making that call, getting dinner on the table, writing a book or building an empire.
If I can lay a carpet all by myself using the three tools of Visualization, Will and Action, I can do anything.
So can you!
