So many times I think we focus on why things aren’t working or what is going wrong instead of focusing on what we could be DOING to CHANGE those things. Whatever we focus on the most becomes the biggest! We can think and dwell on the things in our lives so much that we make them into monsters and ultimately end up paralzing ourselves with fear. So why would we focus on the things that we don’t like? I don’t know about you but I want more of what I DO like in my life! I want to share with you something that has changed my life, so grab a pen and paper…
Start by thinking about what your “dream life” looks like. What do you picture when you day dream about your future or think about your ideal life? If all the stars were in line and everything was just as you wanted it to be, what does that look like? Now write that down on a piece of paper. Write down every detail of what your ideal life looks like, where you live, what you do, how you look, etc. Next write down all the things that would have to happen in order for that to become a reality. DON’T GET OVERWHELMED AND QUIT… JUST WRITE. Once you’re done with that, circle the things that you can begin to change RIGHT AWAY and commit to changing AT LEAST one of them this week, then another one the next week. Doing this simple act of WRITING everything out really enables you to see things more clearly and realize that those little monsters aren’t as big as they seem. Also, committing and following thru on changing one small thing a week slowly builds up your cofidence and belief in yourself to go after those big amazing goals and dreams that once seemed so far away!
Another thing I’d love for you to do is set aside a day and time each week that you re-write the goals and dreams you have for yourself. I every Tuesday morning write down my goals for the year, EVERY WEEK. This keeps those things on our minds all the time, keeps me focused, and keeps me on the same page! It’s amazing how quickly you reach your goals when you recommit yourself to them every week!!
If you want to change your life, be more fulfilled and happier, YOU have to DO something about it! YOU. No one is going to magically create a wonderful life for you and it’s no one elses responsibility to make you happy. YOU have to make yourself happy. YOU have to go for your “dream life”! Here’s a little test I like to do… Imagine that you were going to die in a minute, what is it you would kick yourself for not doing while you were on earth?! Whatever that thing is, you HAVE to do it, whether it scares you or not! =)
