Success Principle #20- Commit to Constant and Never-Ending Improvement

The Principle in a Nutshell: To keep up in today’s world, improvement is a necessity.  But this principle also speaks to the innate urge to learn and improve oneself.   

Discussion: To be honest, when I opened to this principle, I cringed a bit.  Constant and Never-Ending Improvement?  Sounds exhausting to me.  (think I need to release?)  But when I reflect on my life and my business, this principle seems already embedded.  I am always looking for the next great modality or product for myself and my clients and I love workshops that support self awareness and evolution.  Coming from a Sedona Method perspective, I might balance this with the recognition that I know enough and am enough as I am.  

Sedona Method Release:

Allow yourself to remember your own history with ‘constant and never-ending improvement’. Welcome the pictures, the sounds and the sensations that come into awareness as you reflect on this topic.  Then, could you also welcome any resistance to that history or the feelings?  Could you also welcome any judgments?  (I should have done more, not doing enough, I’ve done too much, etc.) And also welcome any help from the mind in trying to figure out the right amount or what you need to do next or anything else the mind might be doing?  Then allow everything you have welcomed to spin or dance together, however it does.  And then, check and see if that whole spin is attached to you or feels personal?  If it does, welcome that as well.  And, when you’re ready, could you just allow the whole spin or dance to dissolve?

Movement Activity:

Imagine yourself running from one workshop to another, from one self-improvement book or course or even to online webinars or teleseminars.  Notice the feelings and sensations that arise in your body.  Does this exercise bring up feelings of excitement, aversion, anxiety?  
Then, allow yourself to sit still for a moment.  See what you notice.  Then imagine sitting still (no improvement seminars) for a week, a month, a year.  What feelings come up now?
Feeling this in your body may help you come up with the right formula for you.  How much is enough?  Not enough?


How much time and money do you spend on improvement?  What did you notice in the movement and releasing?
