Have you ever wanted something and didn’t know where to start? You were excited, full of energy and ready to go, but where? You know what you want, and are ready to pursue it, but you need to have guidance to help you along the way. That’s when the teachers that you need appear. If you’re open and ready, they will come. I decided to be open and ready, and now my teachers are here and ready to coach, teach and lead me. And, I’m ready to be lead. It all starts with the mindset and attitude that you: need it, want it, can do it, and will do it.
I’m a huge believer in personal development, and since I’ve been striking out as an entrepreneur it’s been really beneficial. Because it’s been drilled into me that your paycheck is determined by your level of personal development. I’ve been told that I’m enthusiastic, energetic, intelligent, driven, and I rise to the occasion. I’ve also been told I’m resourceful, organized, and hard working. I kind of took these things for granted, but not anymore. Some of these qualities were innate, others cultivated. All being improved on with help of coaches.
So are you a student that is ready for a teacher or coach? Only you know the answer to that. But, if you’re coachable, trainable and teachable you can grow. Being open and ready to receive is key. It may sound cliched but it’s true. Let’s face it, no one knows everything. And even if you did, most of what know changes depending on what advances are made. So learning and changing are part of the process. You might as well get used to it, and make it a permanent part of your plan.
So how do you know when you’re ready? Simple, things start to line up with what you’re trying to do. The books you need to read, the seminars you need to attend, the webinars you need to check out are all right in front of you. You don’t have to search things out, they seem to find you. The course that’s been in your area for ages, that you never even knew was offered. The mentor that you need to help give you direction and guidance has an appointment open next week. The stars align. Whatever. You get signs that you are getting what you need when you need it.
Doors open that you need to open. And others close that need to close. The right people show up, and the wrong ones leave. The resources are available, and the money shows up. You get the impression that you should be doing what you’re doing while you’re doing it. You have the right attitude and feel positive about the position your in. All while taking things in stride. You’re stretched, but not to the point of breaking. And you start to make headway with your plans. You now have solutions to your most pressing issues. Goals become clearer, and your vision is more vivid. Passion is ignited, and confidence is growing.
When you’re ready, things start standing out to you that you didn’t notice before. Focus and attention become sharper. You start to change. Ideas, impressions, phrases, words and other things grab your attention in a way that you never noticed before. You get excited, motivated, inspired, and ready to take action. Everything changes, and takes you in a different direction. You are now doing what you were meant to do. All because you were ready. Because you are open, and accept what is, everything you need suddenly is there for you. Manifestation some people call it. The mindset is where it all begins. You think about it all the time, and then it’s with you.
Teachers help to motivate, encourage, and inspire and give you direction. Building trust and wisdom when you are in need of it the most. Providing options and preparing you for making better choices. Are you utilizing their resources as they come to you? Are you seeing the opportunities that are coming your way? Pay attention, when you’re ready you send out signals that really let people know that you need their help. They can sense it, and will give you what you need. So are you ready?
