A few days ago I was given a homework assignment that I thought was a great idea and I wanted to share it with you. The assignment came from a free monthly call sponsored by Jack Canfield. Jack Canfield is a wildy successful motivational speaker, seminar leader, and best selling author of Kitchen Soup for the Soul series. He is also one of the stars of the Secret DVD. This month the topic of Jack's call was on goal setting. He spent about 1 hour answering the audiences questions on how to set goals for the new year. At the end of the call he gave this homework assignment. He said pick a feeling or emotion that you want to feel more every day of your life. Examples of emotions are happiness, joy, peace, love, etc. Once you picked your feeling then 3 times a day stop what you are doing and see how much of that emotion you are experiencing in that moment, rate it on a scale of 1 to 10. Then see if you can do something or think of something that will increase your experience of the emotion at least one level on your scale. The goal of this assignment is to experience your positive emotion more in your life by experiencing it each day.
I started my assignment yesterday. The feeling I choose was abundance. I set my phone alarm for 3 random times during the day so I could take a moment to complete my exercise. Last night when I was out at dinner with a friend I noticed that my phone was vibration over and over again. It was my alarm for my moment to sit with my feeling of abundance. I told my friend about my assignment she thought it was a great idea. We went on to talk about other topics and at the end of our conversation she handed me $2 for some tea that I had accidentally paid for her. As she handed me the money I laughed because that is an example of abundance showing up. She helped me complete my homework assignment right there at dinner!
I'm looking forward to completing this assignment for the rest of January. I'm sure that taking a few moments 3 times a day to pray and meditate on abundance will be a wonderful life experience!
