Willingness is the key

Willingness to follow your heart wherever it takes you is the key to finding the destination you are looking for.  Why?  Because your heart holds the secrets of what is truly important to you.  It’s where you store the dreams that keep you going through the hard times.

The heart of you is where love resides.  A willingness to love yourself warts and all is the first step to opening up your world.  It can be hard to accept that your are ok exactly as you are.  If you can start by being willing to believe then you can slowly discover the truth that no matter who you are, or what you are doing, it is right for you.

This doesn’t mean that you stop your journey of self discovery – although you can if you choose to.  As you uncover new aspects of who you might want to become, you can acknowledge that you are taking these steps because you want to, not because you have to.  It’s about being responsible for who you are showing to the world.

Everyone can relate to the power of love.  Whether it’s passion, love of mankind, selfless or self centred love it plays a strong role in day to day living. But without a doubt it is the heart that fuels your passions, your creativity and is the guardian of your hopes and dreams.

You just have to be willing to listen to your heart and what it’s trying it’s best to tell you.  To be fair listening and following your heart can lead you to some crazy places.  Sometimes you can end up feeling embarressed, uncomfortable or even frustrated.  Sound familiar!

Well that’s fine too.  Nobody ever said the road to your dreams was uneventful.  Look at it as the fine tuning to weed out the bits that don’t fit.  It’s when you look back at the journey you can see the logic of some of the steps.  Just be willing to try and see where it takes you.

The head is where your ego lives.  It’s who you think you are and not who you could be.  It’s the part of you that will try it’s best to stop you from following your heart.

Your ego is mostly happy exactly as it is.  Any effort required to make a difference is not in it’s game plan.  It will try it’s best to avoid change.  It counts other peoples opinions as being important to your wellbeing without thinking if it’s helpful or not.

Your ego is part of you.  It’s not a bad thing – we’ve already mentioned that you are ok exactly as you are.  But are you willing to find the courage to listen to your heart?  To follow your heart you are going to have to learn to override the part of you that wants everything to be safe.  Even when safe equals being very unhappy.

Your heart will guide you to the place of your dreams.  Your head will work out the logistics of getting there.  The two will work together to come up with the best plan for you. 

Be willing to listen to your heart in your quest to follow your dreams.  Love yourself enough to dare to try out what’s it’s trying to show you.  Your heart is love.  That love is strong enough to climb the highest mountains.

But first you have to be willing.
