When will your ship come in?

your ship coming inOne thing that we all seem to agree upon is that the timing of when we shall receive what we desire is unpredictable. We behave as though the arrival of our desires is determined by some mystery of the universe.

But what if the timing were actually up to us? What if it is you who is creating the storm that’s preventing your ship from coming in?

Many in the spiritual community believe that anything is possible and that each individual creates her own reality.

We believe that it’s all good and that everything happens for us not to us.

Yet we are so impatient because we want more, better or some more delightful version of life and we want it now.

So it would appear that while we say we accept responsibility – in the same breath we are turning over that responsibility to the Universe or some power greater than we are.

But what if our desires are indeed on the way to us and it is the combination of how we are being, what we are thinking, saying and doing that actually speeds up or slows down the arrival of greater possibilities in our lives?

If that were true (and today I’m thinking it is) then what we do and who we are while waiting for that greater gift actually affects the timing of the gift.

Wisdom says ask and you shall receive. But what if the law was more accurately stated as follows?

Ask and trust that your request is now on its way to you AND you are fully responsible for how soon it arrives.

If that were so how would you be, think and act differently to guide your ship in? I’d like to show you how.

Be my guest to take the first step here.

There Is No After – Right Timing Is Always Now

There is no right time other than now. Waiting for just the right timing is a self-inflicted disease that destroys more dreams than any other self-created limitations. And all limitations are self-created.

We say. “I’ll start this business after my girls are in college. I’ll ask for a divorce after we pay off the house. I’ll have time for me after I raise my children.  We’ll take that dream vacation after the business stabilizes.  I’ll tell him I love him after I’m sure that I do. I’ll spend more time with them after this project, deal or challenge is over.

There is no after. There is no after and even when it gets here it never looks like what you thought it would.

We all have a major decision to make that we are not making. ~ Ian Percy

After is an excuse and a poor one at that.

 Three Hard Truths about Right Timing

1) Windows of opportunity are always temporary. Truth is, delay is incredibly costly.  Windows of opportunity are moving targets. Opportunities are always in the midst of opening or closing.  When we try to keep a window propped open artificially it changes the opportunity. Look at the diagram. You’ll see that there is no delay or waiting in the cycle.

2) The reason we hesitate is never the real reason. It’s always a constructed defense or justification that temporarily relieves the pressure by excusing us for not taking action. I know this is true because I have helped hundreds get over, around or break through their own reason so they could start the business they really want to start.

3) The energy to seize an opportunity is always strongest right when the desire first comes into your awareness. That’s when the Universe is saying, “Go for it I have your back.”

There is no after.  There is only now.  Celebrate & claim your freedom by choosing to go for what you want without delay.

It is not uncommon for people to spend their whole life waiting to start living. Any action is often better than no action, especially if you have been stuck in an unhappy situation for a long time.  Accept – then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it.  ~ Eckhart Tolle

The next time that the Universe blesses you with a really big idea don’t wait for the right time to act. Know that right timing comes along with the idea.

Be ready and do something to show you appreciate the opportunity. You could claim this offer to get really clear in a complimentary strategy session with me.

At the very least ask yourself this question. What does this opportunity require of me now?  Then trust what comes to you and act.
