Question: I am overwhelmed by thinking about what I “should” be doing in my life, yet all success training mentions the importance of goal setting. Is there a correct approach to getting the “impossible” done?
Answer: The next time you hear this inner voice of imminent doom, listen instead to this higher instruction: Never again look for a way out of any anxious condition. Proceed in spite of any thoughts or feelings that would have you believe you can’t. Success only becomes impossible when you try to deal with what isn’t in your power. Renegade parts of you want you to waste your powers dealing with them. Your misguided attention to their punishing presence gives them a life they wouldn’t have without tricking you into giving them one. This means you don’t need power to deal with what’s been defeating you, only the higher understanding it takes to consciously dismiss it from your inner life. You have that power now. Start using it. Just behind your certainty that what you have to accomplish is too much for you lies a new and conscious capability to proceed one step at a time, to accomplish one task at a time, to your satisfaction.
