“This year is going to be different. Really! I’m serious this time. This is going to be my year. I mean it this time.” More than likely, you’ve probably said this a time or two. I know that I have. However, even though this may have been my mantra a time or two, I have noticed that the times where my year was different, it was because I took intentional steps to make it different. Surprisingly (although it should not have been), I found my steps wrapped up in the definition of one very provocative word, SUCCESS.
Success:“the favorable or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavors; the accomplishment of one’s goals.” dictionary.com
Several things immediately got my attention after I read the definition of success.
Goals. If I’m going to have a successful year I need to define what a successful year looks like to me.
Favorable or prosperous. Success isn’t always about money.
Attempts. I can’t have success if I’m not “attempting” anything. So, if I want to have an amazing year I have to do something to make it happen.
Accomplishment. If I start it I should finish it.
For my year to be successful and amazing I am going to have to sit down and think about what I want as it relates to my personal life and my business (favorable or prosperous goals). After I know what I want, I am going to have to do the work (attempts) necessary to have the life that I want for the year (accomplishment). That’s it, so simple right!
Hi Everyone, I am offering two spots in my 6 month program for an incredible price. If you 1) know that it is time for you to do things differently in your life so that you can create and live the life that you want and 2) if you’re ready to implement but want someone to “hold your hands” while you implement, fill in the contact form below.
Have you noticed that when something is simple or readily available we tend to ignore it? Unfortunately, the very things we overlook are usually what we need most. What are you overlooking that could result in that big shift that you want in your life, your business, your career, or your relationships? Today I invite you to to take a simple step.
When you think about your ideal life do you feel excited or do you feel afraid? If the thought of living a better life scares you it’s worth it to explore the origin of your fear.
There are many reasons why living a life that you really want may scare you. Let’s identify some of them.
1. I’m afraid to live my dream life.
2. I’m afraid to do what I need to do in order to have the life that I want.
3. I’m afraid because I don’t deserve to have the life that I want.
4. I’m afraid my family and friends will treat me differently if I live my dream life.
5. I’m afraid that I don’t want my dream life bad enough to go after it.
Whatever your fear, be honest with yourself and acknowledge it. Once you acknowledge the fear something happens on the inside of you. You are now in position to bring about change in your life. Choose well.
I’d love for you to share in the comments the fear that you identified in your life.
Have you ever felt compelled to act on an opportunity or an idea but the timing just wasn’t the best? Maybe you were swamped at work, financially not able, or mentally drained. Whatever the reason, you did not follow through because the timing was not right for you.
Living a life that you look forward to waking up to each day means that there will be times where you are going to have to act outside of your comfort zone. You are going to have to take risks, even do things that seem to make no sense to those observing from the outside. You are going to have to take the plunge.
Let me clarify something first though. You’re not going to pursue every idea or go after every opportunity that comes your way. You take the plunge when your intuition is telling you to take the plunge. An idea that won’t go away, an opportunity that really resonates with you, feeling like “if I don’t do this I’m going to die” (not a physical death, death of your spirit, a shrivling of who you are). These are the moments that you seize. These are the moments that you have to act. Something exciting awaits you in these moments. It could be lessons you need to learn in order grow in business or character, financial gain, networking opportunities, bigger opportunities, even more opportunities. You don’t want to miss out on these pivotal moments. You can’t miss out on these moments. A life that you look forward to waking up to each day awaits you. Take the plunge today!
Are you willing to take the plunge? Let me know in the comment box below.
Are you living a purposeful life? Do you look forward to each day? Do you realize the life that you are currently living is a result of YOUR choices? Scary stuff huh? There is good news. You can turn things around today, right now, by making different choices. Begin today by choosing to move forward from where you are to where you want to be.
CHOOSE TO MOVE FORWARD
The first time I heard someone say that I was where I was because I chose to be there, I was livid! How dare they say that. Why would I choose to be stuck. Why would anyone want to remain stuck, stagnant, merely existing? It is a question I have asked myself many times. The truth is we really do choose to remain stuck in a life we would rather not be in. We all have our different reasons for staying. If we look within, we’ll figure out why we stay. Why do you continue to live a life without passion and purpose? Wouldn’t you rather wake up each day excited to live your life?
PASSION AND PURPOSE
Why not make the choice today to become unstuck. Make the choice to uncover your purpose so that you can live a life of more. Be Inspired!
