In this “Question of the Week” episode, James and Phoebe explain how you will know when your idea, project or business has wings to fly, or it’s time to call it quits.
James reminds people that you don’t “have” to do anything, and the beauty of the Universe is that it’s there to help and guide you. The Universe is never going to tell you to stop chasing what you desire.
“When you have a desire that comes from within, I believe it is a possible reality in your future”
The key is not to approach it from a place of uncertainty or worry. Step back and get really clear on what you want.
Many people will say that they don’t know what they want. The easiest way to determine this is to ask, “What is the essence of what I want?”
The Universe will give you the most direct path to getting what you want, and it’s actually you doing the stopping.
“What it takes from you is an absolute feeling, knowing, being and resonating of trust; of knowing and expecting beyond believing.”
It’s important not to wait until everything is perfect. If you’re denying yourself that feeling and experience now, you’re also denying that thing you believe is going to be given to you.
People tend to get too attached to how something is supposed to show up. Phoebe had a breakdown around a move to San Diego, when it didn’t turn out the way she thought that it would. When she decided to move to San Francisco, she immediately knew that was where she was really supposed to be.
You need to ask yourself if you truly feel that you’re worthy of receiving what you desire.
“The Universe is saying if you ask, it is given”
James notes that we’re taught all of our lives to be employees and to “fall in line” while following directions from others. He says that we need to unlearn 90% of what we were taught in the public education system.
In 2007, he realized he could create an online business and launched his first course. He didn’t know what his desire was, but he did know he wanted to run his own business while building something from his computer.
For some time, his revenue from the course was stuck at a certain level and he then started to created videos for other people. This “leapfrogging” then led him to teaching how to use video online.
“Whatever you’re doing right now could just be one step that leads to the next thing”
If you don’t feel worthy enough, you need to replace that feeling with a more empowering belief.
“If you have a beating heart, if you have a pulse, you are worthy”
When you see someone that has achieved success, thank that person as he or she helps show you what’s possible.
Once you know what you want and have absolute trust that you can get what you desire, the goal is to just step into it fully.
“You will not know until you do it and if you’re going to do it, you might as well go all in”
Phoebe concludes by reminding others that once you make a decision, you need to get really excited about it!
