Today I want to talk about being open to outcomes is impor­tant, to have a vision for your­self and your busi­ness is impor­tant to have a picture in your mind and writ­ten out, and this allows you to move forward in a specific direc­tion. This allows you to set out on a jour­ney on a quest towards mani­fest­ing that vision. However, if we are attached to this, if we are attached to the outcome of what this has to look like, we may be in some trou­ble because the life that you have planned for your­self may not be the plan that life has for you. This isn’t some exter­nal tyran­ni­cal force impos­ing its will upon you. This is the mani­fes­ta­tion of conscious­ness that you’re connected to that is a part of you at your deep­est level and if you’re oper­at­ing from a super­fi­cial ego place, then you may not be able to see that that is the same.

We’ll deep inside of your­self. So when we are open to outcomes, we are open to the possi­bil­ity is that our vision, our image of how we want every­thing to play out is open to change and explic­itly always the outcomes that are differ­ent than we have in our mind are going to be for the better. There’s never an outcome that happens that is going to be worse for you than what you had imag­ined and it may seem that way some­times when you have a fantasy in your head about what your vision is and then awful terri­ble stuff happens. How many times have you heard people that have faced faced death or have expe­ri­enced a life threat­en­ing disease and have over­came it and said, I was given a second chance. The second chance wasn’t that they got to live from the disease. The second chance was the wake up call.

The disease gave them that that situ­a­tion provided for them to reeval­u­ate their entire life. Being open to outcome is about having a vision and moving towards it and not being attached to what that has to look like. Not being attached to what your ego desires and being open to a bigger picture because we can’t see the bigger picture and often­times our vision is limited to this small picture of what we think we should have for ourselves. It is not always connected to a bigger picture, so if you are attached to the outcome, you’re going to face a lot of strug­gle. You’re going to have a lot of pain because you’re going to be attached to things happen­ing and they don’t happen that way. Rather than under­stand­ing and being open to the fact that when things happen differ­ent, then you want them to. There is a bigger picture that there is a larger purpose happen­ing because of that and it makes your life a lot easier.
