“A plane, when flying, is off course over 95% of the time. But the pilot keeps correcting itself over & over, & it reaches its destination.” -Marc Allen, The Magical Path
If you read my last post, you saw that I was getting my undies in a real twist about social media platforms. The learning curve to fully embrace digital marketing so that I can best express my message to you has been a steep one, to say the least. There is so much to consider & try to integrate.
Right after my post (& plea for enlightenment) on the Flow Mojo Facebook Page, a wise woman shared a beautiful but simple piece of advice. BABY STEPS.
& this morning, I read a great post from a writing blog (Write to Done) I subscribe to that wasn’t about writing, but about LEARNING, & how learning is best approached in small amounts rather than in bulk.
If that weren’t enough of a “listen here, maestro,” I decided to tune into an audio podcast with Lynne Klippel of Author Salon TV interviewing Marc Allen & his book “Magical Path” about how success can be easy.
I don’t normally like to take the time to listen to podcasts (gotta get stuff “done,” you know!), but it was early & the sound of Lynne’s voice is so soothing & kind & reminds me of my own former life coach & friend Dolly Garlo, so I thought I’d at least give it a chance.
That & the idea of something being easy really appealed.
I’m so glad I tuned in. All my scurrying about wanting to get my message out to you will mean nothing if I don’t first tune into the messages my inner wisdom is trying loud & clear to tell ME.
So instead of offering you some cool marketing tip or tool I picked up in the last week, I’ll leave you with this:
- Small, obvious steps & affirmations are what lead you to where you want to go.
- Everything becomes simple & obvious in the outer world when our inner world is heard & acted upon.
- Do a little bit, every day.
- Put your dreams where you can see them. Post your goals & affirmations so they’ll remind you to correct your course if you need to.
Rest. Play. Breathe. Dream. Be. Because sometimes flow works best in reverse….& being is where it all started in the first place.
Have a beautiful day!
