I Will Not Expand On That
I just finished a Money Party call at GVU on How to Sell It Out, a class to share my personal manifesting process with anyone who was interested in how to dial in vibrationally to sell out their offering.
Part of my presentation included letting people know where my vibe was before I started the process, which was sort of in the crapper.
My attention had recently been dialed in on a number of (non LOA savvy) colleagues whose offerings weren’t selling, and who were blaming the struggling economy and tight fisted clients on their lack of results.
In my call notes describing the vibrational challenges, next to “An ABUNDANCE of evidence from peers that times are tough” I wrote in strong letters: “I will not expand on that.”
Because I could feel myself ready to explain why this was so hard; why the deck was stacked against me and why it was so easy to believe that struggle was in store.
I know that contrary vibration does not belong in the story of success. Well, maybe in the beginning for dramatic effect, but KEEP IT BRIEF, for hell’s sake.
I love that I know myself well enough to give strict instruction NOT to dwell where it doesn’t serve me or my audience … i.e. The Crapper.
Which is when I realized it might serve me well to have notes for other areas of life when I have a tendency to expand on something that I don’t want to expand. Know what I mean?
- Like when I’m explaining to Russ how bad the storm is that he’s about to drive in.
- Or when I’m describing how awful this wrong brand of chewable acerola is. (Oh, that’s wrong!)
- Or when I talk about how frustrated I can get with my girlfriend. (Very. Frustrated!)
Some handy dandy life notes with “I will not expand on that” would be useful at those times.
Perhaps, sometimes, maybe it IS appropriate to expand on the contrast. MAYBE.
Like at the vet’s office to make sure they know all the symptoms that are presenting. But I’d have a hard time making a strong argument in favor of this one.
What I will do now, though, is commit to paying good attention and honoring when it’s time to refrain from telling the big bad ugly story with all the vivid technicolor details and emphatic body language to go along.
Sometimes a simple “I was upset” or “I didn’t like it” suffices to make the point instead of a lengthy diatribe on … well, I will refrain from going there.
(Oh, look how good I’m getting at this already!)
I will also commit to telling the fabulous stories – like the one yesterday about my new socks (they’re lovely!) and even the purpose of today’s call – an excuse to talk about my filled up program; and how much I love this blind cat Elvis; and did I mention how delicious lunch was? etc. etc.
I will reliably expand on the love.
But in the future when you hear me end a line of thought with “I will not expand on that,” we’ll know that’s my cue for redirecting the line of thought out of the crapper and back into the vortex.
Where I belong. 🙂
