What Are You Allowing Yourself to See?
There are things right in front of you every day that you don't see.
To prove my point, let's go with the car example.
Have you ever experienced purchasing a new car?
You do the research and you decide on a certain make and model. Then, all of a sudden, that make and model is around you everywhere on the road!
Did more people suddenly decide to buy that make and model of the car? No, not really.
Your perspective just changed and you opened your eyes to seeing in a different way.
The same holds true with the abundance of blessings in our lives.

Ideas for How to Put the New Car Effect Into Action
1. Thank and Bless those that “like”, “RT”, “+1” etc.
One of my “secret” gratitude practices for the last year is to say a prayer of thanks for those that express connection with me through social media. I've been doing this for about a year and love it. Every time someone likes, comments, shares, +1s etc., I look at their picture and say a prayer of thanks and blessing for that person in my life.
It is really easy to begin to ignore a simple click of the “like” button, but I bet that if you try this practice out for a while, you'll become more aware of the different people in your circle.
2. Clearly Identify Your Ideal Clients or JV Partners
This is one activity that I do with almost all of my private clients. When you are crystal clear about who is in your tribe/community it is amazing how you start recognizing them. When you recognize them, you can be more conscious of engaging them. Not sure how to do that? Let's talk.
3. Pick Something Simple and Count it for a Week
Think of something simple in your life that makes you smile. For example, when I see things that sparkle when hit by light, I smile. So, as I go on my morning walk with my dog, I might count the things that sparkle: the sun glistening off the lake, dew on the grass, the crystal in my neighbor's wind-chime, etc. Maybe for you it is a certain color or animal or song on the radio. How many times can you count simple smiles in your week?
My Challenge to You
When you open yourself to seeing abundance in your every day life, you also open yourself to possibility. You'll start seeing new ways to interact with your tribe/community.
Every day for the next week look for the abundance and blessings that you have in your life every day.
Do you already do this in your regular habits? What have you found?
