Love in the Blizzard of Life is my novel.</>I, completed writing it on 11/24/12, spent most of December editing and formatting and I uploaded it to CreateSpace.com on 12/24/12. I seem to work well within 30 day limits. My blogging colleague, Beth Hewitt , invited me to join a 30 day blogging challenge starting 1/01/13. Since I was still busy awaiting my second proof for my novel, I hesitated about starting a new commitment. But I know there is tremendous power of commitment and that is why I resisted starting. And then I saw a post by another blogging friend, Donna Merrill, saying that she had overcome her resistance and decided to join the challenge. And then a 3rd colleague, Nick Catricala shared his writing resistance and the 4 pillars of success, beginning with incentive. That’s when I realized that I had not had the incentive until after reading both of my friends’ blog posts. Now that I have the incentive to join the crowd and do what they are doing, I also have my intention.
My goal for the month of January 2013 is to share my principles of love, creating loving relationships, healing from the Blizzards of Life, and learning to love myself and others no matter what is currently happening. I have created a Relationship Healing Mastermind Community at Google Plus. I am also planning to create a local Relationship Healing Mastermind Meetup. And – I am going to resume my Healing Through Love BlogTalk Radio show. That is a lot going on at the same time but it is all connected and leading to one thing – Creating Loving Relationships in 2013. INCENTIVE Each day during this first month of January, I will ask a question about the current principle required for creating absolutely marvelous relationships in your life.
Today I begin with the word INCENTIVE. Ask yourself NOW: Do I have the incentive to create wonderful relationships in my personal, family and business worlds? How will I know if I truly do have the incentive to create better relationships?
1. You feel motivated. You read articles, books, blog posts. You listen to audios and watch videos. You ask questions and listen to the answers given by those you are already in relationship with. And you continue to do that in a mood of optimistic anticipation of good results.
2. You have a reason, a strong and pressing reason to improve your relationships. You may have realized that the other person is not the cause of your problems. You may have been feeling alone and sad and you want to feel better. Your business may have been not at the level you want it to be and you are ready to meet and network with more people. Your partner (spouse or business partner) has threatened to break off the relationship if something doesn’t change. Or maybe your relationship that is not up to par is the one you have with your own self. Maybe you are not happy with your weight, your muscle tone, or your overall physical health and you are finally ready to make a commitment to improve your physicality. Maybe your emotional life could use improvement and you are finally ready to seek counseling or coaching and reach out to others.
3. You feel encouraged. You have a sense that NOW is the right time, NOW you will have the resources and support you need to make the changes. You feel that you CAN make these changes. Perhaps you have already made some progress or you have seen others similar to yourself who have made progress toward similar goals.
ASK YOURSELF NOW: DO I HAVE AN ADEQUATE INCENTIVE TO CREATE MAGNIFICENT, HEALING, PASSIONATE, JOYFUL AND LOVING RELATIONSHIPS IN 2013?
Check in with yourself. Did you feel a glitch of “No, I can’t do that” or “It’s not me, it’s because of my …. (boss, girlfriend, father, wife, my lack of money, lack of education, etc. – you fill in the blank). Okay. Take a deep breath. Sit quietly for a moment. Let go of whatever has held you back in the past. And now, ask yourself again: DO I HAVE A STRONG ENOUGH INCENTIVE TO CREATE MAGNIFICENT, HEALING, PASSIONATE, JOYFUL AND LOVING RELATIONSHIPS IN 2013?
There is power in having a strong INCENTIVE. Stay tuned for the next powerful word to help you build the solid foundation your relationships have been wanting and needing.
