Continuing with Principle #4 from Jack Canfield’s “The Success Principles” entitled “Believe it’s Possible”, I set the intention today to just focus on the principle itself…and to play. Earlier today I did a mandala meditation to receive insight on what my Higher Self wants me to know at this time. The message I received said I needed to play more. So that’s what I did.
It got me thinking about success again. Can we consider ourselves successful without having fun in the process? I’m starting to think not. What good is success if we (I, you) are miserable? Which then begs the question: do we believe it’s possible to be successful and have fun in the process? I was raised to believe that you had to work hard, be serious, take everything about work seriously. And with that, I just unveiled a hidden limiting belief of mine.
I love how this mandala turned out. It’s colorful, alive, and delightful. I had fun making it. (If you follow me on IG or FB, I’m posting time-lapsed videos of my progress). I would most definitely consider the coloring of this mandala a success!
So how about you? Are you including an element of fun as part of your process in going after what you want? If not, how can you make it fun? And if what you’re going after is by its very nature “not fun”, are you able to incorporate fun and play time into other areas of your life?
I invite you to color along with me this year as part of what I’m calling “The Year of Self-Exploration and Expansion” with all of my “Mandalas of the ___” (day, week, month, year). If you’re interested in more of a self-exploration approach to coloring, check out my “Coloring Mandalas as Meditation”. You can download this mandala to color at MandalaoftheWeek.com.
