The Universe Doesn’t Need a Contingency Plan
And neither should you
It seems like the smart thing to do, to have a back-up plan. Juuuussst in case.
A contingency plan, or a plan B, is, in reality, holding you back. It’s you planning not to succeed. It’s giving yourself an out.
The fact is when you make a decision, a decision with a true commitment, you close ALL the doors except the one you are choosing. There is NO plan B.
When you do have a contingency plan you hold back just a little bit. It might be so subtle no one but you knows about it, yet, that slight holding back, that prepared plan B you have in your thoughts, prevents you from going all out for your goals 100 percent.
We all make decisions every day. Some are bigger and have more effect in our life than others. We don’t make a right or wrong decision. We make a decision and then make it the right decision.
You make your decision the right one. It’s a commitment and an attitude.
I just interviewed J V Crum III, author of ‘Conscious Millionaire: Grow Your Business by Making a Difference’, who made his first million by the age of 25. He came from a poor, rural family and still managed to accomplish this huge feat. How did he accomplish this goal by such a young age?
He made the decision. And get this – he decided when he was 5 years old! He tells his story during our interview on the Fresh Tracks podcast, which I recommend you listen to – it’s amazing the power of a 5-year-old boy’s determination to always have money for a candy bar.
Your word is law and sets everything you ask for into motion
Your word is law and you must speak it with the full force and energy of the universe behind it. Your goal is to train yourself to know without a shadow of a doubt that what you declare is true and to believe that when you do make a decision or a statement, what you say happens. Because your word IS law.
However, you are not putting the full force of the universal energy behind your decisions if you have a contingency plan. That is not your word in action. That is “I will give this a try, yet, if I change my mind, if it’s too hard, if I get bored or something new and exciting comes along, I can always opt out. I’ll have this plan in place for that option.”
That attitude is not tapping into the creative force of the universe. You appear to make a decision for your greater good, but really you are just dipping your toe in the water.
If you have made contingency plans in your business the energy of that is going to come across in your marketing and in your sales results. It doesn’t matter how hard you try, or how hard you work, that energy of ‘I’m heading for plan B if this doesn’t work out’ is always going to be there.
How might a plan B look?
- I’ll try this for six months. Then I’ll go get a job if I don’t make it.
- I’ll pay for this a little bit at a time – even though I can pay in full. This way if I change my mind I’m not out the money.
- Only doing the parts of a training course you like
- I’ll keep working until I have my income replaced
- I’m going to stay married (in unhealthy relationship) until the right person comes along.
Your homework – eliminate all your contingency plans. Put yourself into creating your Fresh Tracks full force. Your success, and your knowledge that you CAN create whatever you set your mind to, depends on it.
