293 What Do You Do With Your Great Ideas
It’s Anne, with your Coaching on the Go.
It’s one thing to have a vision and to talk about it.
It’s also something when you are a person who gets ideas.
It’s another to step through all the things that are between you and your vision between you and your ideas.
This week, I’m delving into the courage that it takes.
I’m calling you forward to look into the life you’re living and see if you are on the path to the vision that you want or if you are just talking about it.
It’s easy to have many ideas that never amount to anything.
And that becomes your way of operating.
I remember in my late 40s taking a hard look and discovering I had been throwing great ideas into a big pile and doing nothing with most of them for decades.
Faced with getting close to age 50, which seemed like a milestone, I got to ask myself when I was going to pursue that number of great ideas.
Or was I going to keep just patting them on the head like they were a little child, like Cindy Lou Who in The Grinch, just patronizingly patting my brilliant ideas on the head and sending them off.
Spend some time today looking at what you do with your ideas.
Look at when you are pursuing something, the excuses or the barriers that stop you and send you into procrastination or perfectionism or questioning yourself?
What are the common barriers that keep you from the next level?
Is it money?
Is it that when a great idea or opportunity comes up, you say, “Well, I can’t do that, I don’t have the money?”
That’s a great excuse.
And that can cover many things.
You can use that as an excuse for your whole life or you can discover how to liberate the abundance in your life.
Look today and AUDIT how you do with your ideas.
Watch for the ideas that come to you abundantly during the day.
See how you treat those ideas and where those ideas go.
Do they get to have a life?
Are they immediately put to death or put out to play, not to be considered?
Because you’re busy.
You’re busy doing mundane everyday things.
You’re busy with your to-do list so a brilliant idea doesn’t have a chance.
Your paradigms, your structures, and your ways of being are not fertile ground for incredible ideas.
Take some time today, to do an audit on your system of handling ideas and where they break down.
I will talk with you tomorrow.
Have a beautiful day.
