You Can Do Anything You Want ...

... When You Put You Mind - And Heart - To It!

Many of us are brought up with the adage that we can achieve anything providing we put our minds to it ... which is probably fair and accurate to a degree.

However, over the last year or so, I've been experiencing - both within myself and with my clients - that whilst this can certainly help us achieve what (we think) we want, it won't necessarily mean we're aspiring for what's right for us.

In other words, things like our beliefs, our ego, our personal agenda, etc, all get in the way ... and often these are the cause of us seeking to achieve and obtain "things" we believe are right for us, but in fact are nothing of the kind.

And this is where the heart steps in ... because it is the heart that so often is the source of genuine inspiration that motivates and compels into manifesting what's right for our life. It's the place where we find passion, desire, drive, tenacity, wisdom, courage, compassion, understanding, reason, and so much more ...

The great things is that when we look at these "components," we see they're all positive and productive, as opposed to many of those guided by the mind which are all too often negative and self-limiting.

So I guess what I'm saying here is that when we open our heart and connect with the reality of our lives, we're able to better understand what it is we want and how to achieve it.

What are your experiences of this?
