When I was young I only thought of shortcuts as back-roads that get you where you want to go a bit faster. At least that’s what my dad always told me when he would take one.
Another related thing dad said was, “You’re never lost until you are out of gas.”
Meaning sometimes his shortcuts didn’t work! (He’ll never admit that though!)
Everybody wants a shortcut now days.
A shortcut through the line at the grocery store.
A shortcut to get through security at the airport.
A shortcut to getting rich.
A shortcut to a lean and fit body.
It goes on and on.
What You Miss
But when you take a shortcut you may miss some very important information along the way.
You may miss being humbled and grateful.
You may miss the connections you need to make to be successful.
You may miss the knowledge it requires to maintain a lean and fit body.
If you miss these critical experiences then you may have to go back and START OVER.
Wasting precious time.
Sometimes it’s already too late because what you missed along the way the first time isn’t available to you anymore.
Missed opportunities due to shortcuts.
Here’s the thing: There is only ONE shortcut.
FLOW (being in alignment).
What is is being in alignment and how is it a shortcut to all of my desires?
Living in alignment is:
Being driven by your energy. Your energy changed around you for the better.
You are serving your calling and living your purpose.
You are content with the hear and now and no longer stressed and worried about your future.
You are listening to and trusting your intuition.
You fully love and believe in yourself.
Everything you do comes from your inner core and purpose.
Once you find and experience being in alignment in one area of your life you will always want to seek it in other areas.
That’s the hard part that takes a lot of habits and discipline. Trying to be in alignment in all areas of your life at the same time.
Alignment does NOT mean perfection. It means contentment.
Maybe there are people out there who live in alignment all of the time. But to me staying in alignment is a journey that takes discipline and practice.
The ONLY true shortcut is FLOW!
I will live a FLOW based life. I will never stop seeking alignment in all areas.
What about you?
