Are You a Doer or a Dreamer?

Prince of Disks Ancient Egyptian Tarot by Clive Barret

All the so-called “secrets of success” will not work unless you do.
~ Author Unknown

While common sense is said to be so rare as to be considered a super power in this modern day and age, the Knight of Pentacles (or Prince of Coins) is not afflicted by a lack of it. He knows that apparent over night success is due to years of putting the shoulder to the wheel. 

He is the ideal employee and the friend that others feel they can count on. His quiet perseverance doesn’t exactly appeal to those in pursuit of excitement or flamboyant lovers but he is extremely sensual and usually naturally gifted in the art of love-making – as long as you don’t insist on talking while doing it.

The blessing of this Knight is to help us understand that perseverance is a virtue that is just as important as courage. Meditate with him for a while if you lack stickability or if you can’t get excited about your work. He will help you see that all you need is the ability to focus on the task at hand and the rest will take care of itself. Your ambition is not what will win the day… Getting your hands dirty, day after day after day is what will help you reach your goals.

On the flip side, this sensual Knight can be downright lazy, stubborn and doggedly resistant to change. Which side are you expressing today? Are you a doer or do you prefer dreams of success while munching on a bar of chocolate in front of the telly? How can you harness more of this Knight’s positive qualities?

I am a great believer in luck. The harder I work, the more of it I seem to have.
~ Coleman Cox

Affirmation: “I allow the glory of the All to shine through in the work I do.”

  1. Hi Lisa!

    I’m loving all your posts and content! However, I’m trying to cut down on my email load and currently receive about ten emails from you a day, not including the daily inspiration.

    Since you are a dreamer AND a doer, I thought I would respond to this post to make a kindly request! (On your menu, there is no contact page or “about me” page with contact info, and the emails I receive are “donotreply” from WordPress.)

    My humble request is as follows…

    Can you make a weekly email of all your great content with links so we may go to the site and have a time of it!?? And then you can have subscription options for folks to choose which emails they want to receive!

    Just a thought…. Being such a dreamy doer as you are, I know you can make something of this sort happen so we can stay connected!

    Thanks, Christina

      Hi Christina, if you are receiving direct notifications from WordPress, you need to unsubscribe from those yourself. There is nothing I can do about that and this is in no way related to my weekly newsletter. Cheers
