You’re Not Doing It Right

There comes a time in your life when you get the sense that you’re not doing it right.

You’ve worked hard to get where you are in life and while your friends and family are all envious of the heights you’ve achieved, you’re not sure.

When you’re operating in your sense of purpose, fulfilling your life’s mission you know by how you feel.

When you are “in the zone” you feel incredible about the work that you do, very little effort is exerted (because it seems to come so easily), time seems to slip on by (or there is little or no sense of time passing when your are on task), obstacles are viewed as interesting or fun challenges and there is little or no stress.


How Can You Tell If You’re Not Doing It Right?

No one knows better than you, if things aren’t all they’re cracked up to be. You’ve done the work, you’ve exerted adequate effort, dedication and resources to get you to where you are, yet you know that it just doesn’t feel right.

You may feel as though you are

• fighting an uphill battle
• on the verge of burnout
• competing against others

You struggle with

• lack of energy and/or fatigue
• defending or justifying your work
• lack of satisfaction or sense of accomplishment

You may

• question your own authenticity
• place significance on material things
• desire to keep up with appearances
• have a tendency to want to keep up with the Joneses

You can see how much more satisfying it can be to be plugged in, embracing your gifts, talents and/or special abilities in congruency with your life’s mission and purpose.

While you might think it might be nice if everyone were operating in-the-zone, society and the powers that be dissuade us from an early age encouraging us to think of such ideas as foolishness, asserting that more practical approaches to work and career are more apropos. For if everyone were operating on purpose who would run “the machine?”

The system is convinced that the world must be full of worker bees; none of this fanciful “achieve your highest and best” falderal, so worker bees we are trained to be from the earliest of age. We are trained to go to school, be good and do well, so that we can get a good job. This is the standard by which we are all measured.

You, on the other hand, are part of the evolving being. You mind is expanding. You are realizing there is more to this life than being defined by your job, what you do or what you have.

You know there would be no greater satisfaction than that which comes from being on-purpose, on-track and singing your song.

Nothing is more important to you than embracing and practicing your subdued super powers, exercising and growing in confidence and coherence to deliver the message that is truly yours to share with the local community and the world at large.

You desire to live a better life, your best life, and make the world a better place.

You are on your way.

Plug In Turn On

Whether in personal or professional life, you excel at certain things because the activities you enjoy maintain a certain vibration. The activity’s vibration matches a vibration within you and as sports professionals say, you are “in the zone.”

When you are in the zone you sort of get lost in the activity. The resonance is such a perfect match to your inner core that it appears to create an effortless vortex and time just fades away as you are immersed in the activity.

This kind of focused attention maximizes your performance and while it feels good to get lost in this particular task, you might consider finding methods to channel it into other portions of life to benefit not only yourself but the community at large.

When you plug into this energy vibration you turn on your pleasure centers and expand your mind’s concentration as you engage in this activity, so finding a method to plug in can affect all areas of your life and increase productivity.

Also note when you plug in and turn on your zone vibration it not only lights up your brain’s processing centers but it simultaneously promotes emotional stability by naturally reducing cortisol (the stress hormone) relieving anxiety, depression and the tendency to feel frustrated or irritated.

Plugging in and turning on for a structured 20 minutes per day can optimize you brain’s chemistry and enhance your personal performance. Think about structuring a break in the middle of the day, or when you’re approaching burnout, unplug from the chaos and plug into the zone for twenty minutes.

When you emerge from your trance of focused concentration following your 20 minute charge, the vibration carries over into the task at hand. You now have an increased clarity and ability to more effectively deal with issues and tasks that were difficult prior to plugging into the zone. The zone vibration will fade commensurate with the more challenging the task at hand might be, but your heightened sense of awareness at the outset may be enough for you to more easily push through the process of dealing with a less than desirable task.

Your freshly recharged state improves mental and physical acuity while enhancing your ability to create offensive strategies rather than being on the defensive. You are calmer and experience a heightened capacity for deescalating potentially stressful circumstances.

Spending time in your vibrational zone also promotes creativity, opening up your subconscious flow to make new connections for problem-solving, looking at things from an alternative perspective leading to inspiration and better creative expression.

Look for clues throughout your day, when you feel a shortage of coping skills or are having feelings of frustration, irritation or feeling anger rearing its ugly head. Try to create an opportunity to take a 20 minute break to plug in and turn on in these moments. Also note the time of day you are having these feelings. You may find scheduling a personal zoning session for that time of day hugely beneficial.

By plugging in and turning on to charge your vibrational inner powerhouse, you not only increase your personal performance but you also enjoy reduction in fatigue and a greater sense of being more effectively present in the moment, with an increased ability to tackle difficult tasks and challenges.
