This 12 day process is not meant to be something that just stops after day 12. I invite you to review your folders or notebook each week, update your outline and action plans and please listen to the archive of today’s show: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/behappiertoday It has some great encouragement and reminders for you. I will be continuing this blog and spend the next few days talking more about action plans and giving some great tips and links for you.
“A goal is not always meant to be reached, it often serves simply as something to aim at.” – Bruce Lee
Remember this as you create your action plans. You may find that as you begin to take action, the goal itself isn’t as important as the action you are taking. If your goal is to become a top 10 National Sales Manager, you might find that when you reach the top 10 as a Local Sales Manager, you are very happy, your schedule is great and you want to stay right there! That is success!!!
I hope that on day 12, you are feeling more empowered, happier, and have an increased belief in yourself and in the idea that you can make choices in your life that can lead you to the life you envision. Your dream life is not necessarily something that will just magically happen, it might not be easy, and maybe you won’t create everything that you envisioned… and that is okay.
Today, just let it all sink in…. feel the energy and excitement building as you evaluate your life and create new intentions and goals that fit your true desires. While life can sometimes feel chaotic and overwhelming, we don’t have to live that everyday. AND while we can not control many factors that impact our lives, we can choose how we respond and we can make different choices now and in the future that help us feel better and lead us to at least some of our desires.
The time you’ve invested in yourself over the last 12 days will come back to you in so many ways. You’re developing unconscious and conscious habits of evaluating what makes you happy, your daily activities, your future goals, your relationships with others, and how the attitude you have and the choices you make impact all those things.
I believe life is simple, but we are really good at making it complicated and sometimes overwhelming 🙂 I believe we have three main attributes in our life on earth:
- our gifts, passions, talents, interests, etc.
- our time (we don’t know how long we’ll be here)
- our choice or freewill
Really, that’s about it.
This 12 day life appraisal program is designed to help us see more clearly what is truly important to us, to identify those passions, gifts, talents, interests, that we each have… so we can make choices and use our free will to make the time we spend here on earth less stressful,less overwhelming AND more happy, more productive, more loving, more about our individual desires.
I am grateful for each of you and your choice to join me on this 12 day journey.
“You control your future, your destiny. What you think about comes about. By recording your dreams and goals on paper, you set in motion the process of becoming the person you most want to be” – Mark Victor Hansen
