Football or Reach My Goals

Football or Reach My Goals

I finally fit in this jersey after 10 years. Staying fiercely focused helped.

Today my football season officially begins. I'm a Die-Hard Bears Fan working on building a business, writing my dissertation, working on my Podcast and blog. I know watching the games on Sunday won't help me reach my goals. I really don't need the distraction.

I face a challenge of how to support my Bears and still work on what I need to do. With a little brainstorming and weight loss, I have an answer. I will dress in my Bears colors and work on my projects. I started with a Walter Payton Jersey I bought 10 years ago that I never wore because it was too tight. Then I went to make calls without success. May be they were watching the Bears... Hmmm.

I had to ask which is more important, football or reach my goals? I decided to stay focused this football season. Instead of getting my my comfy recliner, I worked on my many projects. I could always go back to watching later, however, I would rather watch from the VIP seats and bring friends with. In Episode 17, I talked about abundance and what it is I want to accomplish plus what that looks like.Little did I know there was something still holding me back. Something amazing happened, the Universe responded.

The Universe

I started the day kinda weird. There was definitely something holding me back. Thank goodness I'm a work in progress and, according to the Secret, I am the creator. Once I realized this and talked with my mentor, I turned it around. I even went so far as to write a check to myself for $1,000,000 to be cashed when I reach my destination.

the gardenThe Universe responds in many ways. Today, just before I wrote this, my son was putting ice in the basement freezer and a pile of my stuff crashed down on his head. Amongst that debris was a manuscript for a book I started in the 90s, on a manual typewriter, and a handwritten meditation with a sketched image to go with it. It looks like the Universe wants me to publish my first book and create the meditation audio for you.
