Authoring My Life
This past weekend I attended a workshop that shows you how to create mastery in living an extraordinary life. The organization’s promise to everyone, to those who fully participate, is that you will leave with an authoritative capacity to make possible what once seemed impossible and experience complete freedom. Through their transformative learning approach, which is based on ontology, the branch of metaphysics dealing with the nature of being, you will be able to remove any obstacles that stands in your way.
Anyway, as a result of my experience, I will now be producing a collection of statements called "Inventing A Possibility." Without going into detail, the general concept that I walked away with is that ALL WE REALLY HAVE is our word and that our word is powerful because it allows us to create our universe, literally. Furthermore, our word is worthless if not shared and thus I will be communicating my word in person to my social structure (i.e., family, friends, etc.) but also publicity here on my blog. These declarations will be organized under the category of "Inventing A Possibility" and any supporting or associated entries will be filled under "Authoring My Life."
So to kick it off, here is my first publicly posted possibility…
Inventing A Possibility
An area in where I have a loss of power, freedom, and self-expression is in my finances and financial security.
I have been pretending that my finances are and will be okay or that one day they will just work themselves out or that I’ll get lucky by winning the lottery or successful with one of my businesses concepts (i.e., a windfall). I have been inauthentic and unrealistic with myself and those who have relied on me for financial support or those who are important to me (i.e., family, friends, partners, etc.)—and all because I continue to tell myself that I’m a victim of my past or current circumstances.
When in fact I’ve been ignoring the responsibilities that are in front of me—that of managing the finances and bills I currently have. Furthermore, I am failing to create or obtain a viable source of “reliable” income necessary to meet my day-to-day needs and stabilize my current situation. To restate this, I’ve not been honoring my word when it comes to my finances and my responsibilities.
The impact of this inauthentic way of being and acting is creating stress, costing me my ability to enjoy my own life, this world and what it has to offer, healthier and deeper relationships, and it disempowers me from achieving some my desires which is to be self-employed and to help others do the same.
The whole time that I’ve been being and acting this way, what’s been missing is any sense of peace, a positive outlook on life, connections, security, and freedom.
So standing there, in this way of being and acting, the possibility I am inventing for myself and my life is to be fulfilled and content with my finances as well as to be happy and excited with what life has to offer.
