Updated: Mar 1
Without a doubt, last year was not what we all had expected, but through the difficulties experienced, we discovered things about ourselves, things we liked, and things we did not, But we learned and we grew!
Today, I want to invite you to set your sights, your energy, your creativity, and your passion for the endless possibilities that this New Year will bring.
A new reality has set in, and a new way of thinking is required...
A new reality has set in, and a new way of thinking is required, but it is entirely up to us to seize the moment. Once again I am reminded about Psychotherapist, Nathaniel Branden. He had a saying and it was this; No one is coming. During one of his presentations a participant told him, but Nathaniel, you keep saying that one is coming, BUT you came? And He said, YES, but I just came to tell you that no one is coming... How powerful would it be, if you could just clearly grasp that concept, in your mind and in your heart...No one is coming to Live your life, No one is coming to solve your problems, No one is coming to fight your battles, NO ONE is coming to Live your life...Life is going to be what you choose to make of it, but make no mistake about it, whether you realize it or not, you are making that choice. Welcome this new year with an open heart and an open mind, stop living in the past, it's already gone, don't try to live in the future, we all know is not guaranteed. Live this moment, it's all you really have... you can either choose to focus on the difficulties or the opportunities that choice is yours...
4 Questions That Will Change Your Life - Good questions lead to information. Great questions lead to transformation.
1. Who are you and what do you want?
We all experience imagination gridlock. That’s the place of stuckness that keeps us from going after our most meaningful aspirations. It’s easy to simply drift in safety mode, living out the scripts we’ve picked up along the way. This question helps you start with the end in mind. What do you want? What are your strengths? What are your passions? How are these two integrated into what you are doing? Are they reflected in your schedule? 2. Where are you and why are you there? If you try to download driving directions for a trip, the guiding system won’t begin until you enter a starting point. As you create a life map, you’ll better understand how you arrived at your current place. You can build on the good choices and clearly see why some weren’t as productive—identifying faulty thought systems and behaviors. First, discover the facts, then face them. We can’t manage what we don’t know. Where are you in relation to where you would like to be? The creative tension between your vision and your current reality will start to pull you in the right direction. When you know where you are, you discover it’s a lot easier to get where you want to go. 3. What will you do and how will you do it? Purpose and passion are essential for creating your best possible life. Yet purpose and passion without a plan are fantasy. When our dreams collide with reality, reality wins. A dream becomes more than an illusion when goals are set and supporting habits are formed. There is a chasm between knowing where you are and where you want to be. Your plan is the bridge that links the two. What would you like to do that you aren’t doing right now? What’s hindering your progress? What steps today will help you get to where you want to be tomorrow? Are your daily actions adding up? 4. Who are your allies and how can they help? Our journey sometimes appears to be a lonely one, but that’s not the case. We can leverage the strengths, insights, and wisdom of those around us. Our tendency is to beat ourselves up for struggling or not having all the answers. Our natural reaction during tough times is to pull back and isolate ourselves, we even allow self-doubt to set in and question our own worth. But that’s when we need our mutual supporters the most. If you were struggling in the ocean and in danger of drowning, would you call out to a lifeguard for help or start berating yourself for all the swimming classes you didn’t take? It’s not only nice but also essential to have mutual supporters who are insightful, useful, and helpful. Greatness begins with a profound understanding of yourself. It’s referred to as positive self-regard. Self-understanding allows you to manage your strengths and not get sidetracked by your weaknesses. These four questions never grow old. They just grow deeper. They keep you on track for the best of your life. They help turn information into transformation. How are you investing in yourself? What are you doing today that will bring great returns tomorrow?
Change of perspective is required.
