Lesson 25: You've Always Had the Power
November 11, 2011
These workbook questions were curated by Martha Beck. The goal is to continue the conversation and go deeper into the lesson. Your answers are private, no one else can see them.
You have the power—and the responsibility—to make your life better. How will you own that power?
Who would you be, and what would you do, if you had no fearful beliefs?
Look at your life: This is a portrait of your beliefs. What is beautiful about it? What's troubling? What will you change—because you can?
How do you define "success"? What has truly made you happy in the past? Are you pursuing
version of success, or someone else's? Can you choose yours?
Describe your highest hopes. Now ask, "What would be better"? Keep asking this until you can't imagine anything better. That's your new dream.
How are you going to sustain your hope and faith when times get tough? Do you have a plan in place for nurturing yourself in the moments your faith wavers?
Do you still define success according to how much stuff you have, or how admired you are? Notice that this is the ego's definition. Gently put it aside, and notice what your spirit defines success.
What's one step you can take toward your vision of a fully realized life? Is there one small thing that’s part of your ideal future that you can take today?
What's the most important thing you've learned over these 25 lessons?
