23-11 Act As If

Download and color this week’s
Mandala of the Week

This week’s MotW is inspired by Jack Canfield’s “The Success Principles”, Principles #12: Act As If. Canfield states: “…the proper order of things is to start now and be who you want to be, then do the actions that go along with being that person, and soon you will find that you easily have everything you want in life.” I can see where this mindset could make a difference in how I go about my day and how I go after my goals.

I know that when I know how to do something, I can confidently do it and be it. If I were to tell myself I know how to do something, when I have yet to be able to do it, I can sense that my approach to that something would be more able-bodied than if I kept telling myself “I don’t know how to do this”. We’ll see how this week unfolds with this principle.

Over the next seven days, I’ll be delving deeper into this principle via multiple colorings of this mandala and posting them on the Mandalas of the Day. My plan during the week (and after) is to put into practice the idea of acting as if I’m already who I want to be and then following through with appropriate actions.

So how about you? Do you think you could act as if you are already who or where you want to be? How would you act differently if you were already there?

“Acting as if
you were what
you want to become
and know you can become it
is the way to remove self-doubt
and enter your real-magic kingdom.”

— Wayne Dyer

An Invitation

I invite you to color along with me this year as part of what I’m calling “The Year of Self-Exploration and Expansion” with all of my “Mandalas of the ___” (day, week, month, year). If you’re interested in a more self-exploration approach to coloring, check out my “Coloring Mandalas as Meditation”.
