It took me a long time to believe that the statement “everything you want is already available to you” was true. And I still sometimes have my doubts but, I have witnessed first hand for myself and through my amazing clients that the more we put our ENERGY and our WORK and TIME into making our dreams come true, instead of doubting and worrying and creating drama and anxiety, the more things just seem to go our way.
Here’s the secret:
1. decide what you want
2. plan for what you want
3. take action NOW
4. repeat, repeat, repeat…
That’s it…decide, plan and act. But how do you start? I think a lot of us get stuck at the first step…trying to figure out what we want.
Don’t know what you want?
It’s in there, I promise you, but it gets buried under all the garbage of daily living and emotional baggage – the stories we tell ourselves about ourselves and others. There are a bunch of ways into this and YOU MUST write this stuff down. Your brain moves way too fast. Writing slows down your brain and creates a living record of your goals. You could start with the small stuff like the 3 things you’d like to accomplish by March of 2018. Or, you could create the MASTER LIFE PLAN list. What are the 10 or 20 or 50 things you want to do before you die? Pick one or two of those items and start working on them now.
And, once you decide you HAVE TO TAKE ACTION. I repeat you MUST take action. The law of attraction states that what we focus on we will attain. Agreed, BUT you have to plan and take actual steps to get what you want. Let’s say you want to lose 20 pounds. Using the law of attraction, you visualize yourself 20 pounds thinner and stop hating yourself at this weight right now. Awesome thought work but, you also MUST TAKE ACTION…find a coach, start exercising, pick a nutrition plan that works for you. Keep your goal in your mind but you must plan and take action as well.
Are you paralyzed by the fear of making mistakes?
Well… STOP THAT NOW. I call that failing ahead of time. It’s much better to try and fail (you will actually learn something from this) then to not try at all. I make loads of mistakes every day. It’s how I learn and get better. I used to fear mistakes but now I welcome them. I say bring them on. They are what pushes me forward. So I encourage you to make as many mistakes as possible.
Go on…what are you waiting for?
