I'm surrounded by synchronicity.
What exactly is synchronicity?
syn·chro·nic·i·ty: "The simultaneous occurrence of events that appear significantly related but have no discernible causal connection."
It's the simple mindset shift or decision that's followed by an opportunity. A happy coincidence. The perfect person falling into your life. The necessary funding showing up. The first client. The big break.
My most recent experience with this amazing phenomenon goes as follows...
I make the decision to focus my business around my true passion, personal responsibility.
A good friend emails me with an opportunity to enter a guest blogger contest with Brian Tracy.
I leave for an entrepreneur mastermind retreat with some fabulous ladies in New York to discuss my new business focus... and upon landing, find an email saying that I'm a finalist in the contest.
I'm pushed in new and necessary ways, I'm exposed to the right crowd, I'm reassured that this is my calling, this is my path. Things literally begin to fall into place in ways I could never have imagined.
I'm not lucky. I'm on the right path.
When you're being true to yourself and your passions, you're going to discover that synchronistic events become more and more frequent. They become a part of daily life. People literally show up. Money literally flows in. Opportunities, big and small, are abundant!
I remember the days when it seemed like absolutely nothing went my way.
I was unhappy, unfulfilled and totally lost. It was hit after hit, my stress levels were extremely unhealthy and I cried far more than I smiled.
Since those days, the only thing that's changed has been my commitment to create a life built around who I am, what my purpose is in this world and what I'm truly, undeniably passionate about.
When you feel like these kinds of things only happen to lucky people, it simply means you're living off course. You're not following your heart, living true to yourself or pursuing the things that mean the most to you. Maybe you're settling for less than you deserve, or maybe you're just afraid to embark on the road you feel called to travel. Whatever the reasons, they're the very things that are blocking miracles in your life (or, if you like, "luck").
How to Create More Synchronicity, Miracles and Real "Luck" in Your Life
Show up and be ready for the miracles that you're handed!
When I was lost and depressed, life was scary. Now that I'm following my heart, living true to my passions and giving life my all -- life is scary! It's always going to be scary. Especially when you wander away from the comfortable, settled life that you're likely living.
But I promise you, it's so worth it!
So show up and be ready. Keep your eyes open and be ready to say "yes" the next time something seems to tug at your heart. When you're given the tiniest of signs that you really should quit that job, go out with that guy, move across the country or do something else that seems terrifying and insane!
So long as you're being honest and truthful with yourself, you're going to find that the universe really does shift to support you. It's not always easy -- it takes faith and commitment, but if you want to live a life of abundance, happiness and fulfillment, it's the only way!
