Am I being Selfish? - Deborah Donaldson

It seems like when I am doing my morning sit, I start to have questions regarding the trajectory of my life.  I began to wonder this morning if I was being selfish with my desire for the freedom lifestyle.

For me, the freedom lifestyle includes being available to golf on a beautiful day in the NW, or just be outdoors and enjoy.

What brought this to my mind is that I have not reached some of the goals that I have written down and I began to wonder if my goals are not manifesting because they are selfish goals?  

“Success is contingent upon a higher ideal than the mere accumulation of riches.”

Or…. is the answer that they are not manifesting because it is not the right time.

Everything has a season and it could be that I do not know the blooming season of my goal.  I picked a date but I may have just picked the wrong date. Then the song Turn Turn Turn started going thru my head.

“For everything there is a season.. and a time for every purpose under heaven”

Also, are my goals not manifesting because I am not putting in sufficient work or feeling?  Knowledge does not apply itself.  Am I refusing to give up what I no longer need in order to receive what I desire? Do I have an effective Plan of Action (POA)?

In Chapter 16 #28 Haanel states that:  

“the environment you desire will contain everything necessary; the right persons, and the right things will come at the right time and in the right place.”

My thoughts circled around and it was then that I remembered that the accumulation of wealth is not my ultimate goal.  It is a means for me to achieve the other things in my DMP…. Whew!!

All of this probably took a couple of seconds before I remembered that my assignment is to focus on Harmony and Happiness and acquiring

“the mental attitude which will bring about the result desired.”
