Break Through Your Threshold: Be a Goal Digger
By Jai Maa
Do you love the feeling of abundance, and want to be in relationship with richer forms of prosperity? Do you fly the coop from mediocre opportunities in pursuit of greater advantages? Do you become antsy because you yearn to experience the most extraordinary life possible?
Then you, my dear, are a Goal Digger. Don’t be ashamed of it. Let others gossip about the intelligent way you maneuver yourself to higher ground. Perhaps they are envious because they, too, want to achieve more for themselves.
But let’s dig a little deeper… what is it that you really want?
Let’s play with an example in a question and answer format:
Q: What do you want?
A: More money.
Q: If you had all the money you wanted, how would you feel?
A: Safe. Secure. Wealthy.
Q: What would you do with the money?
A: I’d travel the world.
Q: And after you travel the world, how would you feel?
A: Peaceful. Free. Happy.
Q: So now you feel safe, secure, wealthy, peaceful, free, and happy. What do you want to create now?
A: I want to make a difference in the world. I would want others to feel the joy I feel.
Q: What would be the most exciting way for you to make a difference?
A: I would love to help children discover their gifts.
Q: And once children discover their gifts because of you, what would you create next?
A: I would create a school to support children in becoming who they truly are through experiential learning opportunities.
So, you thought you wanted a symptom-reliever (more money), but what you really want is to live an extraordinary life (creating a school for children to thrive in their gifts).
The deeper you dig into your goals, the clearer you become in why you are here on this planet.
Hell can be defined as living this life and never discovering the “REAL YOU,” the person you were always meant to be.
When we sit around waiting for the money that never comes, the time that never opens up, the person who never changes to be the way we want them to be, life passes us by. We think that something outside of us needs to change before we pursue our greatest dream, but nothing could be further from the truth. The only thing that needs to change is you.
Underneath all of the external things we want, are the feelings we hope these things will get us. As in the example above, the feelings being sought through external experiences are security, peace, happiness and so on. Since all feelings are inside of you, what would it be like to connect with those feelings now and move forward creating what you truly want?
A true Goal Digger digs deep inside of themselves to find what needs changing from within, and becomes unstoppable in everything they create. They dig deeply into why they want what they want, and they know that surface desires are insatiable temporary fixes. A true Goal Digger is on a mission for self-realization and greatness, and will leave this life celebrating all they have become.
What do you want more than anything, and what way of being is holding you back? Dig deep.
Do you need to stop complaining in order to connect with responsibility? Do you need to stop giving your power away in order to connect with leadership? Do you need to stop worrying in order to connect with trust and security? Stop making excuses, uncover the real you, and move forward in your deepest calling.
