I read a book last year called Big Magic, by Elizabeth Gilbert and I was recently just thinking about a section in it that I absolutely loved!
It’s the thought that the universe/source/God/whatever you call it gives us ideas. That the universe sees someone who is capable of bringing the idea into reality, so gives them that idea. They either go for it or they decide not to, due to many different reasons, and the universe gives the idea to someone else.
I love thinking that when we get an idea, it’s actually the universe saying you could do this! You are capable of making this a success!
So why do many of us not follow up on these ideas?
Reasons people may not go for it could be that they can’t believe they are capable, they may have other priorities, or they may believe it would be too much work for them, or not have a clue how to do it so dismiss it before even trying.
Or maybe they believe that as much as they would love to do it, there just isn’t any income from it and they need to do things that earn them money. There can be many reasons.
They may even go for it but give up due to the same reasons above, yet if they had kept going they may have been incredibly successful!
You see when you get an idea, its only given to you because it is possible for you to succeed. You may have to make changes along the way because you are learning as you go along, but you are capable of being successful if you stay in alignment.
*Alignment to me is when you don’t force things to happen, you allow them to happen.
Like this blog post, I got the idea to write it when I was in the shower this morning. I wasn’t trying to force an idea, in fact I wasn’t even thinking about my blog. It just popped up and I thought it may interest others so I went for it.
So what ideas have you been having recently? Whatever it is, if it excites you then please go for it as you wouldn’t have the idea if you weren’t capable of succeeding <3
