The Buffet Line of Life
The buffet line of life is a great euphemism for doing what it takes to get all of what you want and not accepting the leftovers and crumbs. Does it seem difficult to manifest your dreams, wants, and desires? Are you trying to get to the front of the line without having done the work necessary?
A while ago, I wrote this article, What do You Really Want? In it I asked “Are you a vibrational match for what you really want and desire?” Part of becoming a vibrational match for what you want is sticking with something long enough in order for it to fully manifest.
The Buffet Line of Life
Back when I first got into listening and reading self-improvement articles I listened to an audio tape by Brian Tracy. It it, he mentioned the buffet line of life. The crux of it was that you needed to “get in line and stay in line” if you wanted to actually make your dreams into reality. In a nutshell, it was about persistence, not taking shortcuts, and never giving up on your dreams.
I expect my Guides felt there was something necessary they needed to get across to me this morning as I slept in later than usual. My dream this morning went something like this:
A friend and I were at some type of large reception and it was our turn to get up and stand in line for the wonderful buffet that was laid out. My friend jumped up and headed toward the line. She asked me if I was coming along. The line looked incredibly long, so I said I would wait until it got shorter.
So I waited at the table for what seemed like forever. She finally came back with a grand plate of food that had everything she wanted on it. I was quite hungry by that time and I wanted to eat.
The line for the great food was as long as it was earlier, so I decided instead to forget the food line and jump straight to the dessert table, where there was very little food left. There was just a lot of pieces, crumbs and remnants left. I remember grabbing a few extra pieces of dessert because I was so hungry.
I woke up this morning with the remnants of that dream floating in my head. Am I really that impatient that I would skip the best looking nutritious food and accept the leftovers instead? (Well, it is possible, as I am an Aries. We are not known for having a great amount of patience in general.) 🙂
Did I not want to do what was necessary (stand in line for a long time) in order to get the best food that I really wanted? Was I skipping ahead to the dessert table to be able to enjoy the sweets (the rewards) before putting in all of the work? A lot of food for thought (Pun intended)!
What about You?
So, have you stood in line long enough to get all of what you want, or are you jumping in and out of the line or trying to skip ahead to the dessert table? Or, is the buffet line full of too many choices that you can’t decide what you really want? Have you really done all that it will take to manifest what you truly desire and not accept the leftovers and crumbs? Leave a comment below.
