“Ruby! Stop day dreaming and focus!” – I can almost hear my teachers at school yell out loud.
For me,however, day dreaming was always a great way to focus. Focus on what I want, how it might look and feel, all the possibilities than can be and the chain of events to follow. Even at an early age, I knew day dreaming was my thing and it made me very happy and those days would be fabulous.
As the year draws to the close, I have been thinking a lot about how 2012 will pan out. And sure enough, I have had quite a few clients are taking coaching sessions because they are worked up about the annual appraisals due at the beginning of 2012!
And even for folks who are self employed, this time might mean looking at what we have achieved in 2010 and planning for what we’d like to do in 2012.
For me pre-paving or as Abraham calls it, Segment Intending, is a great tool that can be used for this purpose.
The way I understand pre-paving as a process, is seeing something happen before it manifests in your reality. We are attracting into our experience every second, so by focusing on a particular event or situation, we can accurately create the reality that we’d like.
And for me day dreaming is the best way to pre-pave. Doing this as many times as possible during the day will, over time, make you a powerful deliberate creator. (Wonder what my school teachers will say about this!)
The thing to remember here is that the Source does not care if you are vibrating from a place of reality or imagination. It simply delivers what you are vibrating. I got this quote from the learning’s from the movie The Secret:
” The law of attraction is impersonal it operates just like photocopying. What you are thinking and feeling in every moment and then sending an exact photocopy back to you which become your life. That makes your ability to change your entire world so very easy. To change the outside world all you have to do is change the way you think and feel and the law of attraction will photocopy the change.”
So here’s how you can take creative control of your life and of that worrying Appraisal conversation with your boss:
- Spending time dreaming about how the appraisal might pan out. As often as you can.
- Imagine the conversation that you will have with your boss. Play it out!
- Imagine how your boss will react. What kind of feedback and suggestions will be given?
- Imagine a relaxed, friendly, collaborative and constructive appraisal interview.
- See yourself happy and satisfied as you walk out.
I have been practicing appraisal conversations quiet a lot this month and it seems to put a lot of folks in a more relaxed place. And that’s a great place to be when you are manifesting abundance in your life!
Go head dream on, pre-pave a fantastic appraisal. Remember YOU are in control of your life.
