BEST of PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, November 8th, 2022 by Gary Spinell in BEYOND INTENT

Please Note: For some unbeknownst reason, when the email delivery firm Feedblitz sent the “Ponder on This” message for Monday, November 7, it was missing the first paragraph of the post. I’ve never seen that error before and brought it to their attention. To see the complete post, please visit this link. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

Now here’s today’s Ponder message:

“Visualization by itself is a marvelous process for attracting to us what we desire. The problem is that what I call our “human-ness” gets in the way. Being human, our minds and emotions kick into gear and become engulfed in achieving our goal. Therefore, as quickly as we do our first visualization on our goal or desire, we become attached to it. And if we are attached to our goal or desire, then our mind and emotions begin to monitor, manage, control, validate, adjust, push, and comment on every step and occurrence in the process of obtaining our goal.

We get frustrated if we do not see progress as soon or as fast as we expected. If we do not see the type of progress we anticipated, then we quickly make adjustments in the approach. We continually check and re-check our approach and become more assertive and aggressive to ensure we reach our goal. We begin to visualize much more often, writing out and looking at pictures of our goal more often. All of these actions and feelings are based in fear, because we have become attached to our goal.

Let go of your attachment to the goal. Allow it to breathe. KNOW that your goal can be obtained if you are preparing correctly and have the correct mindset.”

Gary Spinell, in “Beyond Intent”
