Hearing and Seeing Your Destiny
As a child, I read the autobiography of Anne Sullivan. She was the woman who brought Helen Keller out of her dark and silent world and into a place of understanding few of us in the hearing and seeing world fully grasp. It was one of the inspirations that I had to become a teacher. For a while, I even wanted to teach art at a school for the deaf.
What did you want to do as a child? Remember how it felt to fully believe that you could be an astronaut, the President or Prime Minister, an Academy Award-winning Actress, or an Olympian?
Helen Keller made this suggestion to people as they worked towards making their goals real, and I would like to add a variation to her theme. "It is for us to pray not for tasks equal to our powers, but for powers equal to our tasks, to go forward with a great desire forever beating at the door of our hearts as we travel toward our distant goal." I would assert one step further, that your goal is not in the distance, but rather in each moment of each day.
In choosing an overall life where your heart is in sync with your dreams and actions, the power and intention of each day create an effect of natural movement towards the life of your dreams, a life of empowerment for you and those around you, a life mapped by your destiny.
How can I live my destiny?
Know that this is entirely possible for you, starting today. Instead of saying immediately, "Oh, I can't do that! No way!" ask yourself instead, "How can I live my destiny?" I challenge you to take the first few simple steps. Begin integrating these into your life today and watch what unfolds in the process.
Believing that you are capable of achieving your dreams is the first step toward living your destiny. It is important to understand that the only thing holding you back is your own self-doubt and limiting beliefs. By changing your mindset and focusing on the possibilities, rather than the limitations, you open yourself up to endless opportunities.
Instead of immediately dismissing a dream or goal as impossible, challenge yourself to think about how you can make it happen. This shift in mindset can open up new avenues for growth and development. It may require some creativity and problem-solving skills, but with persistence and determination, anything is possible.
Start taking small steps toward your dream today. Break it down into manageable tasks and set achievable goals for yourself. As you make progress, you will gain confidence and momentum toward achieving your ultimate goal.
Abundance is the truth
Letting go of scarcity and lack is a powerful mindset shift that can help you achieve greater levels of success and fulfillment in your life. When you let go of the fear of not having enough, you open yourself up to the abundance that surrounds you.
Fear is a powerful force that can hold you back from your greatness. It can cause you to doubt yourself, hesitate, and miss out on opportunities. When your mind races to thoughts of not being able to afford something, you limit your potential and put up roadblocks to your success.
Instead, embrace the idea that abundance is the truth. You have everything that you need and more. This belief will help you to attract more abundance into your life and open up new possibilities.
One way to start embracing abundance is to focus on gratitude. Take time each day to reflect on the things that you are thankful for in your life. This will help you to shift your focus away from what you lack and towards all the blessings you have.
Another way to embrace abundance is to practice visualization. Take some time each day to visualize yourself living the life you want. Imagine yourself achieving your goals, surrounded by abundance and success. This practice will help you to attract the abundance you desire and keep you focused on your goals.
You are valuable
Embracing the idea that each person is an equally magnificent creation can be a transformative experience. It means recognizing that you are just as valuable and important as anyone else on the planet. This mindset shift can help you to see the world in a more positive light and to embrace your unique purpose and destiny.
When you understand that you are a magnificent creation with a unique purpose, it can give you a sense of confidence and direction. It helps you to realize that you have something important to offer to the world and that you are capable of making a meaningful difference in the lives of others.
From your core, there is a fountain or wellspring of possibilities. This means that within you, there is unlimited potential for growth and achievement. You just need to stay grounded and focused on your daily goals and intentions, taking actions that align with your purpose and calling.
To live in alignment with the callings of your life, you need to be intentional about your actions and decisions. This means setting clear goals and priorities and making choices that support your vision for your life. It also means being willing to step outside of your comfort zone and take risks in pursuit of your dreams.
You can do this. You are worth it. You are big enough, strong enough, sure enough, and have enough resources. Today! Here and Now!
In a world where she could neither see nor hear in conventional ways, Helen Keller opened a world of possibilities to the seeing world. Embrace her expansive vision, play a symphony to her ears. Go to your destiny.
