What was it I did that made these incredible things show up - right on time too? (Our old car was on its last legs the day we got that Mercedes).
Well, think of it like getting in your car and setting your GPS or SatNav system to your destination address.
Suppose you’ve never been to that place before so you don’t know the way, or even the territory.
But the GPS system does.
And you, of course, know how to drive!
(It’s teamwork, you see!)
So you start your journey and the GPS or SatNav gives you instructions one at a time … until you get to your destination.
Notice two things:
1. You only get to know one, or maybe two at the most, steps in advance.
2. For you, finding the route is stress free. You have an onboard navigation system that knows the way so you can relax and just drive.
You can also see that…
1. You trust your ability to drive and
2. You trust the GPS to get you there.
So you’re chilled out, relaxed and super-cool!
Or to put it another way, you’re taking appropriate but relatively effortless action, (you’re driving the car), and you know you’re going to get where you want to go, even though you don’t know the way.
Even if there’s a roadblock or diversion, the GPS will simply recalibrate and find you an alternative route.
You Can Do This
Tiptoe back through my two stories for a moment.
The first time I ran out of money and of course I was concerned. But I made myself stay positive.
Whilst there was some conscious effort in that, it sure felt a lot better than burying my head in my hands and wailing, “What am I going to DO?” at some unseen - and probably non-existent - power!
In fact, I didn’t DO anything.
But I made sure that I was BEING as chilled as I could - not about my situation but about life.
With the money for the car incident, I’d completely let go of that situation months before. I knew we needed to replace the car and I’d posted a picture of a silver Mercedes on the noticeboard above my desk in my home office.
That was the car I wanted. I had no idea how I was going to get one, or when, but looking at the picture made me smile.
Are you getting it?
To put it in the simplest possible terms …
