Some days the world is full of possibilities and life just flows.
Other days frustration can appear and life gets blocked!
Yesterday was a frustrating, blocked day for me. On our beach walk this morning I was talking with Des about how frustrated I was feeling about not getting the things done that I had set myself to do.
Des asked me what were the three most important things that on any given day I would want to get done if I was to feel satisfied. And the 3 were making money, inspiring others, getting done what I had set myself for the day. Des then asked if I could only have one of those at the end of the day which would it be.
I said inspiring others. I felt good about that which doesn’t mean I don’t want to make money on a daily basis.
Then Des suggested a possibility conversation. I asked what that was?
Des said I would have to put aside thinking about the past, what had been done and not done,and even put aside focusing on the present. We would just discuss possibilities.
As my mind started to figure this out Des said there was another rule, I had to sent my “controller” off for a walk on the other side of the beach. Not easy for me but I went along with it.
Just them I looked up and saw a rainbow. The ageless symbol of both abundance and possibility?

We then went on to talk about possible ways that I would be able to inspire people on a daily basis.
Then Des asked what was possible to achieve in this regard in 2 months time?
What system would I need to set in place so that every night I would have a better than 80% chance of being able to say with confidence that today I inspired someone somewhere in the world.
That gave me a basis to develop a plan
I came home inspired to clear the decks and focusing on making the possibility my reality.
Simple and Easy.
Let me know if you might like to try the possibility conversation and if it helps you?
Attract Abundance Today
Suzie – you just inspired me. What a beautiful rainbow! Have an abundant day in whatever you do. Pam (21 Days of Motivation group)
Love when do inspire and I have also found you inspiring and so organized, very motivating
Ah Suzie, I don’t call it the ‘possibilities conversation’ but for years, I have engaged in ‘what if?’ discussions – sometimes with myself, sometimes with my dear husband, sometimes with others.
What if today, you knew all your strengths? What unique strengths would you value? What would you value about other people and what they bring to your life?
What if today, you could give thanks for your life? What would you acknowledge as the struggles that make you strong? What would you value as the gifts in your life?
What if today, all possibilities were possible? What would you want? What direction would you take to achieve them? What steps could you take to get there?
What if today, absolute abundance flowed your way, without question, without baggage, without expected repayment? What would you value? What would you appreciate? What would you recognise as ‘abundance’?
What if today, despite the hustle and bustle of every day living in 2009, you had a quiet time to reflect on your day, your work and your relationships. What would ‘gentle your soul’? What would inspire for tomorrow?
I guess, the bottom line out of all of this, is that I often feel we are far too hard on ourselves. Our lives are woven with struggles, challenges, joys and gifts, but if the day has not spoken to our innermost values, beliefs and directions, then we haven’t listened enough. The pure joy of walking and talking with Des on a beautiful beach at sunrise – you accomplished a lot Suzie, in that one action. And knowing you as I do, I would dispute that you accomplished nothing on that day! You continue to inspire me daily… 🙂 Two out of three ain’t bad!!
This is wonderful. thank you. you what if today prompts another blog post coming up, I think you might have inspired a series/Yes I agree we are all too hard on ourselves
Thanks for making my heart sing
How much we find when distracted from our search.
Thank you, Suzie!
blessings to you and all you hold dear,

I like the idea of discussing possibilities. Instead of getting stuck in only one way or one option, talking about possibilities opens up our choices. It helps us to explore what we may initially disregard as a possibility. We allow more inspiration to flow into our life.
