How can we raise the odds that we will get something written today and end the number of times we just shrug at the computer and our waiting creative endeavors?
These are the questions I will attempt to wander through in this edition of Writing Guru.
Listen in to this first edition of Writing Guru and learn about your thoughts, destiny, and how you CAN coax situations into being in your life just by inducing harmony and coincidence.
Welcome Groupies. Peace and love to you as you get centered and prepare to be creative.
Have you ever noticed how things happen in this world and we just take it for granted? You do not even think of how something else had to take a backseat while you got what you wanted. In truth, an indeterminable amount of things had to happen for you to get your satisfaction, and many of them were negatives depending on who is looking at them. For example, you are listening/reading this post/audio that I have written/recorded and because of that something else is being excluded. Perhaps you said no to cooking a meal, or perhaps you said no to listening to the radio, maybe you said no to the television in order to be here listening to me right now.
That’s what I mean.
Every time you make a decision to act on your thoughts another action is being denied. If you had not said no to these other things, you would not be here right now at this very moment. And if I had not said no to items on my to be done list and recorded this, it would not be here for you to consume. It is how harmony and coincidence collide. It is called synchronicity. It is called destiny.
Every possible action is weighed with two possibilities:
1. It will happen
2. It won’t
Now I am not saying that destiny can’t be tweaked. It can.
It’s called action.
TAKE ACTION TO MOVE THOUGHTS
You can increase the odds in your favor by taking an action. You know well that if you want to lose weight, you have to first have the thought about losing the weight, and second, take an action to do it. It is a for sure thing that having the thought alone will not move that needle lower on the scales.
Although you could say no to getting on the scale at all. An action is just an action but it has consequences.
But if you get on the treadmill, every day, and eat a diet that is conducive to weight loss, you will see the thought turn into a reality. Going back to my example of how things have to be denied…well, you see what I mean. When you say no to eating ice cream after your dinner each night, you are in fact saying yes to the thought of losing weight and thereby increasing your odds of success.
It is the very same with your creativity and getting a book written.
There are a lot of ways you can take your actions, also. You could say, I want to write a book. Then your action would be to actually sit down in the chair and put your thought into action. But you could also pull out a page of paper and write. Or you could use the recording device on your phone and dictate ideas and transcribe them later.
Just because there are a multitude of ways to put ideas into motion, it doesn’t mean that you have to tackle them all. You only have to choose one to influence the outcome of your thought-action destiny.
Aside from the possibilities of HOW you will get this action completed, what determines the outcome is the action. It is clearly related to taking the thought of writing into the next level. And one more thing…the more ways there are to accomplish the goal of seeing thought turned into action, the more likely we are to actually ACT.
Think about that. If you have multiple ways to get a bit of writing done, you will more likely sit down and do it than if there is only one. And if there are ample means for us to write, then the more the opportunity sector goes up, and the higher the likelihood that we will actually get down to the action of writing.
And this doesn’t even examine places to write. When our thought about taking action considers all the possibilities that are there for us to take that first step, it is hard to find a reason not to.
I hope this has helped you to see how you can turn your thought about writing a book into an activity that can happen and in order to keep order in the universe, really SHOULD happen.
Until next time, peace out, Groupies.
