Today we’re talking about Measuring the Immeasurable.
The way that the world operates nowadays is on results. I’ve always been a big one for results, having a plan, KPI’s, what are you trying to achieve, getting your goals.
If you think about school, it’s very much focused on results – the numbers that you get, not only for the student and how that’s going to help you achieve everything in life and where you go for further education, but also for the schools as to how well they are rated with educating people.
Unfortunately it only really shows the results of those subjects where you can actually test something and get some kind of result from it. Even those numbers, they are just a number. They are just feedback.
Where I want to focus on today is – how do you know how you’re doing in life when there isn’t a test you can do? If you’re on a spiritual journey, how do you know where you are? Are you making any progress? Are you going forward or are you going backward? How do you know?
The truth of the matter is – there is no test to do it and the only person that can really answer it for you is yourself.
The best way of looking to see how you’re doing is by looking at your life and the results you are currently getting. Your actions are going to come through in the results that are showing in your life. The people you attract, the circumstances that you are attracting in your life.
We need to be accountable, and responsible for all our actions in life. Whatever is showing up in our lives is as a result of the choices we are making in our lives.
I really encourage you to take the time to reflect on your life and where you are going and the kind of results you are getting. Are they the results you are wanting, and if not, why not? Where do you need to make changes in your life? What do you need to change? What behaviours you need to change? How do you need to act differently?
It’s a continual process so there isn’t even an “I got there.” You need to be reflecting every day, on your day, looking at what you can do differently. Looking at circumstances, what you didn’t like about how you handled yourself, consider how you could have gotten a different result. Work on changing your behaviour to achieve better results.
Remember that you can’t change other people. The only person you can change is yourself. How you react to other people and how you behave. The boundaries that you set. Saying Yes or saying No. That you are working in alignment with your truth. Being strong and true to that.
I really encourage you to move away from expecting everything to have a number and be willing to look at your life and see how you can improve it for yourself.
