Do you have a place that does that? A time or area of history that just calls to you? I do. I have two. One is Elizabethan England (and I have a past life memory of that that is hysterical and SOOOO not what I expected!) The other is China. I’m not as sure of the era as I haven’t done work there.
Grin. I know one or two of you rolled your eyes at me just now. Past life? Really?
But what I want to address in this post is the Knight of Swords energy. The Rumi quote
“May God give you prosperity: then you will have already achieved your aim.”
is a bit of strange one. What does our mental guy have to do with prosperity? Isn’t that the Knight of Coins purview? Well maybe it is, but then again if the Knight of Swords keeps his thoughts on his aim, he will gain more than even the most studious of Coin armored guys.
Because he can see where he is going. He is focused. He has aims. He has achievable steps to reach his goal. That’s something I’m seeing so much on blogs right now. Everyone is interested in telling you (selling you) their way of achieving goals. Hell, even I’m doing that with my constant mention of this workbook+planner which really is all that…
What is at the core of any of this–mine, hers, his, theirs, yours?
Your individual dedication to your individual goals. Have you written them down? Have you listed the steps you need to take to get them?
I have (because of that planner) and one is already in the bag. Another from last year was put on the back burner because I didn’t think I could do it. I wasn’t convinced enough in my own aim to write it down with actionable steps. So it kind of floated into nothingness.
I have to put that back on my list. With steps to achieve that goal.
Will I achieve all my goals this year? Well, most likely not but I will achieve far more of them this time than last year. That’s a definite.
So what goals will you write down? How many steps will each take? Dream big, darlings. Dream big. I’ll be telling you soon about my first big goal that has come to be already. Promise.
