Clarity of Desire
I enrolled in a class to improve my business on a hunch, deeply inspired by New Thought leader Florence Scovel Shinn (to never violate a hunch). The class didn’t help me directly with its skill set, but it brought crystalline clarity of what I did not want.
Three weeks into this six-month class, I articulated what I did want at an impromptu girlfriend’s lunch.
Turns out one of the women at the lunch had a contact that met my need (to launch a writing initiative), and I had a new partnership within 72 hours.
It was a good lesson for me that clarity in what I don’t want can launch me right to where I need to be, and sometimes I need to hold loosely the road that takes me there.
