When my kids were much younger, they would talk about how they wanted to go to visit Disney World. I had them close their eyes and imagine packing for our trip, going to the airport, getting bumped up to first class, getting all the cookies and drinks they want on the plane, seeing Mickey greet them. You get the idea. Their faces would relax and light up as they imagined this amazing trip. I asked them how it feels. They would sigh and smile and assure me it was an amazing feeling. It’s that “feeling” of getting what we want as though we already have it that keeps our attention focused on what we want. Those good “feelings” are actually neural representations in our brain. To get what you want now, you must create positive neural representations that are the signals that you already have what you want. You have to imagine it with good feelings.
Create new neural representations to remind you of what you want now. This is where you are driving to. What do you see, hear, and feel when you get where you are going and get what you want now?
This is to remind you to keep your attention on where you are going and how you will look, how good you will feel and what you will hear when you get there.
Remember, you have a destination in mind for your life and business. You have to “drive”, take action to get from where you are to where you are going. You can no longer allow the current or past trauma to take all of your attention. Failure in a previous life situation can no longer keep you stranded on the side of the road staring and feeling afraid and helpless. Hurt or humiliation from childhood can no longer take away your license to drive where you have chosen to go.
God has given you the keys to drive, to choose what you want to do with your life, to choose where you put your attention. It is time to use that power God has given to you to decide exactly where you are going and then to put your attention on why you are going there, what you will do there and how you will feel there.
Show yourself the same compassion God has shown you when you feel stuck staring at the wreck on the side of the road. Give the wreck a blessing and get back in the car and drive because you don’t have to stay here anymore. You get to go to a new place that offers you more pleasure and life fulfillment and freedom. It is in going from here to there; you get to experience more of the power of God’s love for you and that is really what you want right now.
