There’s a place for you in this universe where you will execute from your optimal state. Everything around you could be in total chaos or everything might be just fine. It doesn’t really matter. You will be performing at your peak and handling whatever comes at you with the best of your ability.
There’s no claim to perfection here. But there is a claim to your best. It may or may not be good enough, but you’ll know you’ve done all that you can. And you’ll know as well you’ve got the energy to keep on pressing ahead.
You will be in balance.
You will have found your Center.
External events will be handled with Willing Acceptance. There will be no wasted time or wasted energy regarding the reality which exists around you. What is, will be what is; nothing less and nothing more.
Internally you will process information and circumstances with Objective Perception. Emotions will remain in check and detachment will rule the day. And you will have clarity like never before.
Your consciousness and focus will be immersed in the Present Moment. The lessons from the past will have been catalogued and the future will be dealt with in good time. And discernment will cut clean and true in the Now.
All kinds of positive energy will be flowing through you. Events and others will be directly affected. And you will wield and project this energy through Right Action; as you would with a powerful flash light in the dark of night.
And finally, a cool, even, burning Ambition will drive you forward. You’ll know exactly what you want from life and each new day will become a fresh new challenge.
Yes indeed, not a bad place to be.
And it will only get better.
Find your Center.
Know Your Mission
You cannot just be drifting and aimlessly wandering around. You will need a Sacred Purpose; or as I like to call it, a Life Mission to anchor all that you do.
Your Mission is your reason for being. It is something that will envelop your whole life. You will immerse yourself completely. Your Mission and you will become one and the same. It will be the stated and internalized Principles that will guide everything you do.
Without a Life Mission, without a Sacred Purpose, you will not find your Center. You will not achieve your optimal state. And you will not be in balance.
Knowing who you are, who you want to become and what you want to achieve are absolutely necessary for you to find your way in this world. Without these things you’re just an aimless soul who will be bounced around by circumstances and you will never fully reach your potential.
By definition then, the stronger and clearer your Mission, the more likely you will be to find the sweet spot; the Center where you’re meant to be.
So dig deep into your Core then. Dig deep into your Soul. Find what it is that will create the ultimate Meaning. Make it a set of principles that will make you proud as you lie on your death bed one day. Make it a Mission you would be proud to discuss with your Father, Mother and Children.
And once you find this Mission and the weight and seriousness of it becomes palpable, you will have your start. Make it the most important thing in your life. And let it drive and support everything else that is important to you as well.
This is the true beginning.
Where you will ride the momentum of your life in balance and in control.
Where you will have the opportunity to manifest your divinely inspired personal greatness.
Find your Mission.
Find your Purpose.
Find your Center.
Mind, Body and Spirit
All three aspects of your Being must be inline with your Mission if you are to find your Center.
Work on your state of mind, work on your physical health and work on your Soul. And make sure all three are in consistent parallel to each other and trending in the right direction.
There will be no Balance to be found if your complete Being is not in alignment.
And the two keys to make sure you get there are Virtue and Discipline. Make Virtue the foundation and Discipline the steel frame. And then build from there.
Always do what’s right. This will help protect and develop you, without any unnecessary friction from self-defeating behaviors. No cognitive dissonance, a clear conscience and good decision making will be good for the spirit, mind and body.
And consistent disciplined action over the long term is an absolute must for you to find your way.
Eat right, exercise, read, reflect, maximum effort at everything you do, apply what you learn, manage your money and evolve. Do the hard things, do the important but not urgent things, be authentic and compare only to yourself. Become a better you. No more zero days.
You must do what you’re supposed to do, don’t do what you’re not supposed to do and deny yourself when it comes to bad habits and shallow distractions. And never stop.
Don’t expect to be perfect. If you should fall, get back up and keep fighting the good fight; the pursuit will always be worth it. Even though you’ll still make mistakes and even though not everything will work out, you’ll still be good. You’ll be operating at your best, living in the moment and in line with the Natural Order.
When you find your Center it’s all about the process. Make the process everything. It’s this process that will in the end, become your Center.
And once you find it, you’ll never want to leave.
Not a bad place to be.
Contradiction and Flow
You’ve been there. You’ve had a taste of it in the past; for hours, days and weeks perhaps. There is nothing like the feeling of executing at your best. It elevates everything. It’s just a superior way to live.
But it didn’t last.
Once you find your Center you’ve got to respect it. You’ll want to immerse yourself in the flow and remain there.
But then life has a way of offering all manners of opportunity to contradict this flow. And it’s very easy to get overconfident and make some choices which will conflict with this balance. Choices which are inconsistent with what got you to where you are.
Some of these choices will be bad decisions and some will be recurring bad habits. Others are initiated from outside pressures.
Do not allow this to happen.
Remain selfish when it comes to your Center. Protect your flow at all costs. Most of the time it will simply be short term distractions or demands from others which will endeavor to break your stride. And as disciplined as you can be, it’s always difficult to resist the entreaties from a loved one.
But to remain at your best and to be able to offer your best to those you love, you’ve got to put yourself first. Especially as you begin to find your way. It’s necessary to develop your momentum and put some time behind you—until you become extremely hardy and heavily armored.
Because, the longer you find yourself at your Best, the easier it will be to remain. In the beginning, however, it’s very easy to fall away. No doubt you’ve experienced this already.
It is frustrating and a tendency towards learned helplessness and regret can develop. But always remember, if you’ve been there before, you can be there again. After all, you’re you. Enough is enough at some point though.
So let this enter into your mind then. Find your Center and cherish it. Protect it at all costs. Avoid the contradictions which will jeopardize your flow. Think long term. Your goal should be to put yourself in the strongest possible position; for your benefit and the benefit of your loved ones.
The best you can offer the world and those you care about is you at your Center.
Find it and stay there.
Respect the flow—no contradictions.
Thrive and be a benefit for all.
When you remain in Balance, in the Flow and at your Best, it’s only a matter of time. Nature will take over and you’ll begin to Evolve. You will become better, different and more.
This is the big prize. This is the ultimate payoff for your discipline and tenacity; for remaining in your Center over the long term; for cherishing and protecting it.
Unforeseen Possibilities will begin to emerge and make themselves manifest. Opportunities and choices you never would have dreamed of will present themselves. You will become infused with energy, clarity and a force of purpose in all that you do.
This is the ultimate state; you at your best, thriving, becoming more and changing your life in a never ending run to Personal Greatness.
Life will be fresh. You will improve the lives of everyone around you. And you’ll justify your life and every subsequent breath you take.
What evolves survives.
And what stagnates will perish.
Find Your Center.
All the best,
