Oh, Say Can You See?

Over two months ago, I wrote this blog post and scheduled it for release today. I am struck by the synchronicity of the reference to the training and mindset of marathon runners in light of this week’s bombing at the Boston Marathon. My heart goes out to all those affected by this tragedy. I carry you in my thoughts with prayers for love, light and healing.


When you’re faced with a challenge, it’s easy to stop yourself by saying, “but I don’t see how I can get all the way to my goal!” 

The good news is you don’t have to be able to see all the way to your goal. In fact, you don’t even need to be all that certain about precisely what your goal looks like. All you need, in each moment, is to trust your energy, your intuition concerning the general direction in which you believe the goal may be found.

Then just take the first small step. It doesn’t have to be a big step. In fact, it’s helpful for it not to be a big step because course adjustments are easier as you go when each step is small. So take that first itsy, bitsy, teeny, weeny baby step. Pay attention to feedback from the Universe and your own energy and intuition for guidance. Then take the next small step. By going as far as you can “see” in each moment, when you get to each stop on your Journey, you’ll know where to head next, how and when.

This approach just makes sense. When runners train for a marathon, they don’t see the whole twenty-six mile race stretched out before them. They see the path. Their training doesn’t even begin with the full distance of the race. It begins with a single mile. Or even a walk around the block. They don’t say “I can’t see the finish line, so I can’t start.” They just start moving in the right direction. 

The same is true for all of us every day. 

When you can’t quite see your full vision of something new, go as far as you can see. Before you know it, you’ll be looking back on your progress and accomplishments and be in awe of just how far you’ve come.

About djwlifecoach

As a retired board-certified coach, author and Reiki master teacher, I continue to share hope, possibilities and empowerment with the world. What's love got to do with minimizing stress and getting unstuck? Everything! My book, "Choose Your Energy: Change Your Life!" (Hay House/Balboa Press 2013) shares my story and the stories of 10 of my clients along with my signature Discovery Framework. During my 30 years as an organization transformation consultant, I served as a senior partner in four of the world's largest, most prestigious global professional services firms. In 2005, I took a five-year sabbatical to find healing and peace because non-stop work had taken its toll. My recovery from burnout, including a sustained 80-pound weight loss and freedom from 10 years of debilitating depression, led to finding my purpose sharing hope, possibilities and empowerment with the world. Through healing and self-exploration, I discovered that loving yourself unconditionally is the key to transforming your personal life, your work and the world. With attention and intention, I learned to live in alignment with love through a wealth of energy-shifting tools and techniques that help me reduce stress, anxiety and overwhelm by releasing limiting beliefs, emotions and habits. My books, blog and radio episodes help individuals and organizations harness the transformative energy of love to turn unexplored possibilities into fulfilling realities and step into their greatness.

I live in Williamsburg, Virginia with my husband, Wilson, and the coaching cats who manage my life—SiddhaLee and Maisy Jane.
