I can guarantee that, if you put in the time, do the work, and consult with your coach/director/consultant, you will successfully align with your dreams and attract the experiences you desire. Here are some areas for starting.
Get into Character.
“I still expect much from life and look forward to what lies ahead for me in the years to come. I am still full of plans. I often feel that life is full of promises.” —Tamara Parisio
Consider: Who am I? Who is with me? How am I showing up? To boost your ability to perform aligned with your goal, find role models and mentors to guide you. Ask me about the 5×5 process for discovering your character and the key characteristics to ensconce in your heart.
You Are Enough. Forgive the past, be mindful in the present, know that you deserve a bright future. You do you perfectly. Every aspect of you is part of your journey. Embrace and acknowledge even the traits you are working to change.
Build your confidence and your courage with triggers to assist you. Smells, souvenirs, and music ignite memories, sometimes predictably. Act on this potential—summon a burst of energy at will simply by recalling the feeling of success or joy and injecting it into the current mood with memory igniters: a song, a scent, a photo, a recollection.
Know Your Why.
“If we would only give the same amount of reflection to what we want out of life that we give to the question of what to do with two weeks’ vacation, we would be startled at our false standards and the aimless procession of our busy days.” —Dorothy Canfield Fisher
Ikigai is a Japanese concept that means “a reason for being” usually used to indicate value source in one’s life or things that make one’s life worthwhile—the “thing that you live for” or “the reason for which you wake up in the morning.” Take time to find your purpose. Let it guide you on the journey, through challenges, over hurdles, and to your starring scene.
When you set your intention, you connect to meaning and a sense of purpose—intention is your heart’s tool, a reminder of the focus you must have to make a shift in your consciousness.
Manage the Critics.
“Remember that your dominating thoughts attract, through a definite law of nature, by the shortest and most convenient route, their physical counterpart. Be careful what your thoughts dwell upon.” —Napoleon Hill
Take charge of your primary critic—the voice in your head. Put stress and worry out of your mind. Write it all on paper—everything that is bothering you. Put the paper in an empty drawer. Create self-talk that encourages you. Be your own bestie. The brain stores your experience PLUS the meaning you give the experience (beliefs), and it relates other things with a focus on evidence to support the assumption. Decide your beliefs with awareness. Let yourself seek and see that which supports you!
You Are Enough. Forgive the past, be mindful in the present, know that you deserve a bright future.
Study Your Script.
“When you surrender to what is and so become fully present, the past ceases to have any power.” —Eckhart Tolle
Accept where you are right now—that is the first and most important step toward your transformation! Carry on from where you are to where you choose to be. According to Pearson’s Law — when performance is measured, it improves; when performance is measured and reported, it improves exponentially. So not only will you study your Playbook, but boost success by rehearsing or sharing your lines with others. Accountability is key.
With a crystal clear goal, you can obsess over actions to take for the next 90 days to make it happen. Actions must be attainable, you have a clear yes/no on whether you did it. Action drives momentum which drives results. What is your key action?
