A few years ago Singapore introduced a tradition where you can go down to Marina Bay and write your new year resolutions onto a big white plastic ball which is floated on the water along with the desires of thousands of other people. We were there just before NYE 2010 and got amongst it with the locals… the energy was vibrant and expansive but I did wonder how many people would take action... So here’s some ideas on having BALLS and getting productive!
is for BRAVE (and big!)… I saw people write the most extraordinary things – both positive and negative. How much ballast do you give your positive and negative ideas? This year, would you be brave enough to focus your energy and efforts on big, bold ideas that can change the world, or at least your life?
is for ASKING… One of the most phenomenal truths in this world is the simplicity of ‘Ask and you will receive’. When you want to be more productive and you want to achieve more, try asking for help and then being willing to receive it! Does it really matter if it’s not perfect and you don’t do it all yourself? What are you really asking for? Get a big white ball and write on it…float it in your bathtub… you may discover new solutions by changing your point of view!
is for LUSCIOUSNESS… Do your ideas inspire you, make others desire them and draw you into making them real? If you want instant productivity then lusciousness is like the moth to the flame… Thousands of people play with Singapore’s white balls because it inspires them… What projects can you create that inspire lusciousness… in yourself and others?
is for LIVING… How often is your life wasted because you are living someone else’s life or dream? What would it take for you to really live your own precious life? When you start living your life and stop living for everyone else, you achieve infinitely more and maybe you’ll receive more fabulous surprises! Are these BALLS yours or someone else’s? It’s up to you to choose!
is for SURPRISES… When you use your balls, you’re going to receive magnificent surprises from unexpected quarters. Doors will open, people will appear, and possibilities will arrive. Instead of ‘I can’t’… start asking “What if I could…..?” Who knows where your balls will end up!! As long your balls are in the air, you are productive… what would it take to float some new balls in 2010?
So, 2010 is the time to get your BALLS out and play… playing is much more productive than working smarter – just ask any child! Well… what did you think I meant?
