Embracing Deservedness

Posted on: December 3rd, 2012 by Jeff Ritter 2 Comments



Finding joy in life is about “getting into the game,” by  believing you  deserve to be experiencing amazing things!

There is a fantastic passage by Marianne Williamson entitled “Our Deepest Fear,” that says in part “We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you NOT to be?”

All too often, we look at others who are attractive, brilliant, successful and say, “I wish I could be like that.” We then immediately brush off this wish as mere hopefulness or passing thought. If you have been too shy to go for it in the past, it is time you take a stand, and change your life now! Jump-start your dream by adopting a mentality where you consciously make the switch from “wishing to doing.” This is all about taking immediate action and putting your dream in motion. If your dream is to play in tournaments, then sign up for a tournament right now. It doesn’t really matter what it is, but by picking up the phone and making a call to action you will set in motion an exciting journey taking you to places you had never imagined possible.

I experienced this shift a few years ago when I told a friend I thought it would be cool to learn to fly airplanes. He immediately handed me the phone and said, “If you want to fly, then I think you should schedule a lesson.” At first, I didn’t want to make the call. I had thought about flying for years, but never believed it was something that I could actually do. But then he said, “You just told me you want to fly airplanes, so go fly airplanes.” Right then I picked up the phone and called the local flight center setting up a lesson for the next morning. Even driving to the airport I thought I was crazy and considered canceling. Sure enough, though, twelve months later I was a pilot.  Chances are if it wasn’t for my buddy, I still wouldn’t have pulled the trigger and went for it.  I still remember my first solo flight, being up in the air and flying over the rough Arizona terrain thinking, “I can’t believe I am actually doing this!!!” It was an amazing experience I owe in part to my friend who gave me a push.

So now it’s my turn to push you. Whatever you have been wishing about, your job is to start doing it NOW! Pick up the phone, schedule an appointment and make the commitment. You’ll find the moment you shift from “wishing to doing” your next amazing adventure will immediately begin to unfold.
