What Wants to Happen?

What Wants to Happen?
Our job is to come from that place, that perspective of tapping into the bigger message, the bigger request that’s being made right now in our lives.
— Alan Seale

What wants to happen?

I start almost every morning asking myself a series of questions.

Here is my current list:

  • What is the highest and best I can aim for today?
  • What does the wisdom in me move me to do next?
  • How do I direct my awareness in more focused, intentional ways?
  • How can I best engage my network to help them benefit from my work?
  • If I were to focus on one thing, what would it be?

What comes up often surprises me.

It's usually something new and unexpected — the next best next step for me to take, a new design to create, a project to start, or a person to contact.

I recently reconnected with my interview with Alan Seale, Director of the Center for Transformational Presence.

Since Apress published the interview, I can't make the full interview available, but you can read a preview at How to More Effectively and Authentically Respond.

There’s a lot of wisdom in his interview, but a question he raised that stuck with me is this one:

“What wants to happen?”

We are often the product of a series of reactions to our circumstances.

Questions like “What wants to happen” put us back in the driver’s seat to co-create with a greater mind, which is what I endeavor to embody in myself and my work.

How will you answer this question?

For myself, I'm adding this question to my list.

I encourage you to step away from the distractions for a few minutes and ask yourself this question too.

And as Alan says, “Our job is to come from that place, that perspective of tapping into the bigger message, the bigger request that’s being made right now in our lives.”

Do you have a favorite question that's working well for you?

I'd love to know. Please reply and let me know.

Or stop by the community site and share it with other forward thinking leaders.

To your forward thinking life & success!
