Today’s Mandala Message: Put In The Time

This week I’m working through Principle #16 from Jack Canfield’s “The Success Principles” entitled “Be Willing to Pay the Price”. I set my intention today to ponder the idea of putting in the time…which I certainly did with today’s coloring. Canfield states: “Part of paying the price is the willingness to do whatever it takes to get the job done…no matter what it takes, no matter how long it takes, no matter what comes up. It’s a done deal.”

I have found that once I make the decision to go after a goal, I make it happen…even if it takes years. I’ve been creating mandala art for over 23 years. It has evolved and grown because of the time and energy I’ve put into creating, learning, and expanding how I make them…and I will continue to do so. I have no idea where it’s headed, it seems to unfold step by step…always with the intent of evolving to great heights.

So how about you? Are you willing to put in the time it takes to make “it” happen? Do you know what it will take? Are you ready to make “it” happen?

“But though many things
are typically required
to reach a successful outcome,
the willingness to do what’s required
adds the extra dimension to the mix
that helps you persevere
in the face of
overwhelming challenges…”

— Jack Canfield
