Manifesting My Heart's Desire

Manifesting My Heart’s Desire

This past week has been a full one. In my last blog, “I Gave Up on Myself,” I mentioned that my heart’s desire was to make my living with belly dance and healing. I’d like to thank those of you who emailed me and shared your own feelings and experiences. I want you to know that I really appreciated it.

I spent over 40 hours in three days last week working on my belly dance business and I loved it! I love feeling in control of my own destiny and love feeling a sense of accomplishment.

First I made a huge list of things I needed or wanted to do. It was a long list and included the next six books I want to create and publish and lists of things I need to do for Spring Oasis, Belly Dancer USA and my annual retreat.  Then I prioritized what needed to be done now and what could wait, and I worked on setting goals.

Here is some personal insight about me: I am fabulous at having ideas, I love to plan new things and I have attention deficit disorder. Can you say, “squirrel?” Yes, I have a tendency to run in five different directions and I am very easily distracted. My greatest challenge is staying focused and following through.

For instance, about a year ago, I asked several people to do Amazon reviews of ‘Belly Dance Transformations.’ Then I was immediately on to the next thing.  Last week I remembered to check and see if they wrote the reviews. Only two of them had posted a review. Two.

Now if I want to have a successful business, I’m pretty sure I need to follow up on things sooner than a year. Yes, pretty sure.

I’ve always been a list maker, but often lost my lists. I tried using a computer program and ended up losing everything when my hard drive crashed, so I’m developing a system to help keep my brain on track, help me stay focused and help me remember to follow through.

So far it seems to be working, and I am so excited about this!

I hope you have a fabulous week and if you feel like reading a great belly dance book full of stories about how belly dance has transformed and empowered, here it is! ‘Belly Dance Transformations!’
