[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Success comes from being willing to move into Uncharted territory

Never be afraid to "try your hand" because you don't want to might make a
mistake or not do something "right." Success in life comes from being
willing to move into Uncharted Territory. Neale Donald Walsh

What do you want to do right now in your life that you have been avoiding
because of fear?, you have been making excuses and excuses and excuses,
which is only a form of fear and denial.

What have you been avoiding in the name of fear or maybe you convinced
yourself that you are avoiding it to keep the peace?

What have you been procrastinating about?

What are some of the unfinished businesses you have "somewhere out there?"

Everyone has something they started but did not finish. This does not refer
to those things you are in the process of completing. It refers to those
things you have shoved to the side and keep telling yourself you will get
back to it someday but that day never seems to come.

This is what I have learnt in order to fully realize and utilize our
Personal Power, we must eliminate the weight of Incomplete Cycles of
Action. Whether they are created by the habit of procrastination, loss of
interest, lack of time or, just plain old laziness, you will be challenged
in the process of creating what you desire when you are carrying the weight
of what you have not completed. For the purposes of moving forward, there
is an important distinction that must be made between finishing what you
start and, being complete with it.

An incomplete cycle of action is created when we hold on to an idea,
responsibility or obligation of finishing something, whether or not that
thing still has meaning for us. The learning opportunity is to recognize
that while you may not "finish" something, you can be "complete" with it.
When you are complete you stop telling yourself you need to, want to or,
are going to get back to it. Once you are complete with a thing, you must
release it from your mind. When you hold on to it in any form, it takes up
value space in consciousness.

Right now, my incomplete cycle of action is completing the PhD programme
that I started. I have my thesis to complete and its been taking up space
in my consciousness, so I woke up this morning and thought, let me close
this cycle, it will take some doing, and that could mean putting it on
pause in my mind so that my mind is left free to deal with what is in front
of me right now! Food for thought!
