Focus On Your Goals, Not Your Ego

Do not feed your ego and your problems, with your attention. ...Slowly, surely, the ego will lose weight, until one fine day it will be nothing but a thin ghost of its former self. You will be able to see right through it, to the divine presence that shines in each of us.” ~ Eknath Easwaran

Are you focusing on your goals and intentions? Or, are you focusing on your ego? Are you following your heart because that is where your deepest desires reside? Or, are you listening to your fears, doubts and worries?

If you are focusing on your fears and listening to the voice of doubt, then this is your ego rising up to control you.

You must be so intention focused and value driven if you are to receive your goals. Revisit your BE words for the year. Remember, your three BE words? Those words are your companion and compass on this intention receiving journey. Your BE words come from your heart center and are your keys to unlocking any blocks to making conscious choices. When you are about to take an inspired action on your goal or intention, you may hear the voice of doubt give you reasons not to take the action. What do you do?

You STOP, TAKE A BREATH, revisit your BE words and ASK:
“Will taking this action bring me closer to my heart’s desire?”
“Is this action in alignment with my BE words?”

Remember, your BE words are connected to your inner values; going against your values will create conflict within. In a conflicted state, you cannot receive your heart’s desires; you only receive more unnecessary conflict and pain.

So, just for today, listen to your heart and not your ego to manifest your deepest desires.
