So as we’re beginning a new year and resetting our goals and
commitments for the year, here’s a thought from Dr. William
Tiller that can greatly increase our leverage and effectiveness
in turning our actions into desired results:
The unseen is always the parent of the seen.
What does this mean?
How many times have you felt the weight of having to do all
the work to create your goals — and felt the big “gap”
between where you are now, and where you want to be?
What if you could leverage a dynamic power source — kind of
like riding a wave — so that your action still mattered, but
now your action was simply cooperating with something greater
that was already set in motion on your behalf?
This is the power of recognizing the connection between our
mental picture, our internal state, and our actions.
One of my key mentors over the years, Jerry Clark, has shared
that our goals and timeframes are for our conscious mind, but
our subconscious mind exists outside of time. The clearer the
picture we impress upon our subconscious mind, the more people,
ideas, resources, even “vehicles” show up in our lives that
can support us in realizing that picture.
Of course, this means we’re also acting and taking steps to
move forward each day, but now rather than our action doing
all the “heavy lifting” from scratch to “make something happen”,
now our action is lighter, easier, and even more fun — because
it’s cooperating with and even “reaping” what’s already been
set in motion in the “unseen.”
Too far out?
How about experimenting with this beginning today — rather than
rushing into action, take some moments to listen, imagine, and
create in the unseen — perhaps with music, out in nature,
with your journal, or simply in quiet contemplation when you
awake, as you fall asleep, or during a break during the day.
This is how my wife Rachelle and I have created the life
we’re living and enjoying today, and we’re still learning
and growing in the process.
Next pay attention to what shows up as you take the steps you
can take to move forward today.
Enjoy, and feel free to share your own experiences in the
P.S. Want to work directly with Ben and learn more about the
business vehicle and strategies he and Rachelle have leveraged
to create a life they love so you can do the same?
We look forward to hearing from you!
