Swift vs Struggling Manifesting
To be fair to all the male creators out there (who read my October 23rd ezine with the genders showing the swift creator as female and the struggling creator as male), I’m giving you your due:
Believes what he wants is possible
Willing to try
Gives himself credit where he can
Practices what he learns
Is open and trusting
Doesn’t hinge his wellbeing on the outcome
Feels connected to the world and others
Easily finds something to appreciate
Leaves the past in the past
Open to guidance (from higher self and others)
Doubts it’s possible; fear it’s not
Sees failure instead of progress
Doesn’t give it a chance to work
Is “shut down” and suspicious
Everything depends on a positive outcome
Feels isolated and alone
Sees little to be grateful for
Feels compelled to analyze what went wrong in the past
Closed to guidance from self and others
Hope that feels better. I actually understand how offensive that may have been for some to read, as I couldn’t bring myself to use “she” or “her” in describing the struggling creator here.
My sincerest apologies!!
And a clarification in the same issue: my ecology professor (in fact, my high school ecology teacher, too) in college is inspiring because of his enthusiasm and love for his field of work. I rarely meet others so engaged and in love with what they do. Which is why he’s my model for joy and passion.
(See guys, my ecology professor/hero was male … !!) : )
Seriously, the simple fact is that most of us show up in both lists at one time or another. Which is fine. That’s how we work. It’s not unusual and it doesn’t make us bad or wrong or incompetent.
What I like is for us to be aware of where we’re holding ourselves back in order to free ourselves from habits that don’t serve.
Awareness is the first step.
So, along those lines: I’m willing to try to help and believe that I can (and am). I give myself lots of credit (in fact, the “thank you” emails outnumbered the “what were you thinking” emails 9 to 1, so thanks to those of you who give me credit, too). I’m practicing what I know every day (and doing so in this post now), am open to correction and new learning, I’m feeling the love for and from those I’m in this go-round with, loving life in general and appreciating that people read and think enough of what I’ve written to write back!
And with that said I’m off to write a new post that’s been on my mind for a few days.
Thanks for being here! You likely have no idea how much you mean to me! : )
