“In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: It goes on.” ~ Robert Frost
By now, you should already have a good idea of what you want. In a while, you’ll create your own list. We’ve discussed that it is perfectly all right to change and adjust your list every so often. Some of you will obviously revise your lists more often than others.
You might also want to consider including the use of a vision board or mood board as a tool that accompanies your list. A vision board is, literally, a board covered with a piece of paper or fabric onto which you pin or glue visual representations of your list. We will cover the vision board in more detail later, but consider it an essential tool in manifesting what you want.
For now, start by ripping out magazine pictures of happy people in perfect health doing all the things you also want to do. Collect photos of places you want to visit and things you want to do. Keep them for when you have a vision board, so you can paste or pin them to it.
Vision boards and want-it-all lists are most effective when you put them where you can see them and look at them often. If you are not comfortable putting them in a prominent area for everyone else to see, then stick them into a drawer in your bathroom, vanity or closet. You can even put the list in your diary or journal. Pick a place where you’ll see it every day. This is an important part of the creation process.
As you live your life, keep your want-it-all list close. Refer back to your list and mark off one accomplished event after another. Ultimately, you will realize that you’ve already done and achieved a lot more than you’ve given yourself credit for. Most likely, you will mark off a whole slew of other items that you’ve listed as your want items. Perhaps some of them even more than once, as your life will have many ego-RHYTHMs™.
This leads you to understand and know that despite your wanting to run to the finish line in under 10 seconds, you can have it all – just not all at once. That’s life in a nutshell. You do not need to do anything else other than examine your past, acknowledge the present, and define what you want for your future. Pretty easy, isn’t it?
Well, yes, but you have work to do first. Y
You will, and should, make adjustments to your list as often as necessary. If you don’t want something anymore or your interest has faded in an item, simply take it off, adjust it, rewrite it, or add or delete aspects of it. You are the creator of your list and you can do whatever you want. Once again, I encourage you NOT to listen to anyone telling you that you can’t possible have what you want. You can and you will. Period.
Here’s an observation: Lists are all about KNOWING, the K in KARL™. The more thought that you give to your want-it-all list, the more you will learn, and eventually KNOW, about yourself, about the path you’ve followed, and about what’s in store for your future.
Have you ever wanted something so badly right now, only not to get it – then find out you’ve received it at a later time? Perhaps when you were better able to appreciate it? Let me know – I’d love to hear how your path in life progresses, every little triumph or tribulation. We’re in this together. Thanks so much for sharing.
