Plan B. Really?

What else is out there? What should I do if what I want to do seems elusive?


For artists and entrepreneurs — a key Spiritual Workout constituency — the pursuit of Plan B boils down to a single, fundamental idea: beliefs. I’ll assume for the purposes of this conversation that you have a Plan A to start with: an idea, a mission, a goal, a dream, a hope — something. But the thing hasn’t yet manifested and so there is a void, a vacuum, abhorred by Nature itself! We know without a doubt, then, that the space will fill with energy. If we are confident about the process of co-creation we will, on purpose, fill that void with thoughts and feelings that directly align with our desire. We will trust that how and when it shows up are not our domain. We will have faith. We will have confidence. We will expect. We will sit in joyful anticipation of our heart’s desire until it is made manifest. No Plan B. No need.

We believe time is running out and/or we don’t deserve what we want and/or we are failing and/or our idea isn’t realistic and/or we’ll never get funding and/or we won’t survive and/or we can’t take the pressure and/or all kinds of thinking and feeling that is not aligned with our desire.

But if we allow the vacuum to fill with worry, doubt, anxiety, confusion, and their ilk, we will beeline to Plan B every single time. By focusing attention on Plan B, we are essentially saying we don’t believe we can be, do, or have what we want. We believe time is running out and/or we don’t deserve what we want and/or we are failing and/or our idea isn’t realistic and/or we’ll never get funding and/or we won’t survive and/or we can’t take the pressure and/or all kinds of thinking and feeling that is not aligned with our desire. Thus, our vacuum is now filled with the very energy that clogs up the works and prevents Plan A from ever really having a chance.


The good news is that as conscious artists and entrepreneurs, we know that when we uncover a belief we have — regardless of how non-serving it is — it can be changed. Every time. So it’s a clear and incredibly simple choice: create a Plan B or C or D or E or F or learn to change the beliefs we have that tell us we can’t have Plan A.
