Sometimes dreams, ambitions, plans or actions seem to be irreconcilable. They seem to be at odds with other ambitions, actions, dreams or plans and cannot be combined in some way.
When something like this comes up this week, experiment with the following. Instead of telling yourself that things cannot be combined, merged or cannot work together, say to yourself :
“These things can beautifully partner together, I just don’t see how yet”
This way you are programming your brain to start looking for possibilities on how to combine things, how to find creative solutions, new directions. And let yourself be surprised by new things you come up with, creative ways to bring things closer together, etc
These new directions, creative ways to make things work together, you would not see if you say to yourself that things cannot be combined. When you say this you are programming your brain to look for evidence that indeed these things cannot be combined. Your brain will not look for creative ways to make some sort of combination possible.
So help your brain! Tell yourself this week: “These things can beautifully partner together, I just don’t see how yet”. Maybe also brainstorm with yourself based on the premise that a beautiful combination is possible and ask yourself: “How could this work together? What steps can I take to make this work together? “
Don’t worry if nothing comes up yet. Trust that your subconscious brain will come up with unexpected, creative new ways. So just let it simmer for a couple of days.
Will you share unexpected combinations or creative new ways that came up for you?
