Send Out Your Ships

Advice

I sent out my ship today.  In Chellie Campbell’s book, The Wealthy Spirit, which I love and have read many times, she talks about sending out ships and acting in the direction of your dreams.  Envision these ships coming back to your shore full of treasure.  The ship can take the form of a sales call, sending out a resume, volunteering in your desired profession, or pitching your show or book.  This is difficult to do because you don’t know when your efforts will pay off.  It could be 5 days, 5 months or 5 years from now but you can’t worry about when or how you’ll receive your desired result you just have to send it out to the universe.  You have to act in good faith and follow your instincts.

This is a leap of faith and there is definitely the chance of rejection.  However, when all you do is worry about rejection, you waste valuable time.  What if your next employment opportunity is lost because you put off applying to the position you got excited about and now the posting is filled by someone else less qualified than you?  What if you lost your next customer because you waited too long to call them, while another sales person with a similar service didn’t?  While you sit frustrated and scared to put yourself out there, you are missing out on potential fruitful opportunities.  These opportunities can get you closer to reaching your dreams.

How do you know when to act?  This part is very personal because you have to listen to your internal cues.  When you have a strong feeling, whether it’s a butterfly in your stomach, an excited feeling, or a fun daydream where you envision the positive outcome of your action– you must act on it.  Dump the fear, and take the leap.  This ship can potentially become the bridge you need to carry yourself to the next level.  I sent my ship out today, will you?
