Do You Ever Wish You Could Just Arrive Already?


I'm curious, do you ever feel frustrated that you just haven't reached your goals yet?

Last week I was in North Carolina in a mastermind retreat working on creating my goals for 2014. Here I am with two of my inspirational friends from my mastermind Melanie Elkin and Jess Grippo.

As I was traveling back to NYC I was thinking about arrival and how that relates to your goals with your health and body.

On the flight boards in the airport they list the departures and arrivals.

I was considering what it means to arrive, and I realized that it can be easy to put a sense of permanence on the act of arrival.

One might say, that when you arrive at a moment or destination it is then that you will be in a new place.

I often hear from clients that they so deeply desire to reach their goals - to feel how they dream of feeling and look how they wish to look.

They wish they could just arrive already!!! 

The belief is that when they reach their goals -- then they will finally be happy, satisfied, and fulfilled.

But It seems like the journey to the goal is overlooked.

The very act of arriving is an accumulation of passage through time, space, and so much learning.

The only way that I arrived to NYC from North Carolina was through purchasing a ticket, getting on a plane, the plane taking off, and the support and guidance of the pilot transporting us through the air to land safely at LaGuardia Airport.

I find it is so important to take a moment in each session with my clients to note the new connections, awareness, and observations to celebrate the subtle shifts carrying forward towards the goal.

Taking note and celebrating allows for some of that joy, satisfaction and fulfillment to be felt on the way towards the realization of the bigger goal. 

Ever notice the happiness, excitement and anticipation that can be felt when you are en route to a destination that you are really looking forward to arriving?

The transformation really takes place in the journey towards your goal.

”If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, to who you are, here and now and when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong.” - Masaru Emoto, author of The Secret Life of Water

My invitation to you this week:

Love your transformation!

I invite you to think of your goal and visualize:

How do you want to feel when you have arrived?
What is your energy like?
How do you look?
What do you see when you look at your reflection?
What awareness and connections are you sensing in your body?

By taking a moment to visualize you are "booking your ticket" to your "trip" towards your goal.

Wishing you radiant health!
