Do you wish you could get results faster?
As a recovering perfectionist and over-achiever, I would often hope that I could get results in my life more quickly. I became impatient when it took longer than expected to achieve certain goals. Sound familiar?
Then, I heard that "time" is a construct humans created to digest, process, and organize what happens in life. When I heard this theory, it helped me to look at time a bit differently.
What if you could change how you feel about time?
I began to explore a new perspective for relating to time. In fact, I love the quote "Time is a trainer." When I hear this phrase, it reminds me that I don't have to rush through my life and that I don't have to have all the answers today. These days, I don't feel as pressured by time frames.
Results might take longer than you'd like, but what if you can get a better outcome by being patient and therefore allowing more opportunities for a solution to arise. Don't be so attached to how a situation should unfold. If something happens to delay you on your path, think of rejection (of what you desire in the moment) as a redirection needed. Maybe the rejection will lead to a new clue or solution on your path.
Why this approach works...
This new perspective can be so liberating. Just keep telling yourself "time is a trainer." Your brain will feel more at ease. With that sense of calmness, you'll have access to more solutions - and it just feels SO much better! (There is scientific proof to confirm that this happens:-) Ultimately, when you're calm, you can be in the present moment, let go of all the "shoulds," and free up your mind to be more open to new and different answers. Our BEST ideas come to us when we're happy and feeling good. Our brain performs optimally when we're in a happier state.
Try it out? Let me know what you notice. No rush getting back to me:-)
