yes-238380_1280Willingness is the light side of withdrawal.

If you are willing, you will check into your energy and choose a clear yes or a clear no. Then direction and movement become possible. People who simply withdraw do not give a clear yes or no, a stalemate position, hampering forward momentum. Therefore, effective action becomes impossible.

Confidence is at the root of so many attractive qualities, a sense of humor, a sense of style, a willingness to be who you are no matter what anyone else might think or say. -Wentworth Miller

Curiosity endows the people who have it with a generosity in argument and a serenity in their own mode of life which springs from their cheerful willingness to let life take the form it will. -Alistair Cooke

Questions to ask:

  • When am I most willing?
  • What lights-on thought or activity supports my willingness?
  • Where can I be more willing?
  • How does enthusiasm, celebration, modeling, contributing, empowering and force relate to willingness?
  • What does willingness feel like energetically? Notice it: experience that feeling.
