We often know the things that bother us, the list of things we don’t like, and it is easy to blame our spouse, employee, employer, and others for not living the life we want to. There are always difficult people in our lives, external factors that are easy to blame in any situation.
I would like you to look at the matter from a different point of view. Think for a moment, what is it EXACTLY that you want? Have you ever thought of your ideal life? Ideal day? Ideal job? What kind of impact do you want to have on this world? What kind of a person do you want to attract into your life?
The truth of the matter is that a lot of the time we don’t know what we want. We don’t have a crystal clear definition of our ideal day. Our mind is designed to protect us. It is designed to evaluate the situation and make the safest decision – take the least dangerous route, and so a lot of the time, it just stops us from dreaming big.
I have created a freebie to help you design your ideal day, make sure to download here and start practicing the exercise to create a life on your terms.
It’s very difficult to reach a destination without knowing where we are going. Vague and fuzzy goals do not get us anywhere. At my company, Mompreneurs Middle East. We teach entrepreneurship to mom entrepreneurs and I often get asked whether business plans are actually important or not. They take a lot of time to create and often, we don’t end up following the plan exactly and the financial projections are nothing but a guess.
A business plan is important not just for the end result, but the thought process that goes into writing it. It makes us sit down and consider all the options for creating that business. The same process needs to be done for our own lives, you need to create a “Life Plan”.
One of the reasons we write Resolutions every year is to be clear about our goals. This is another exercise that some people ignore because they believe that resolutions do not get achieved. The reason we don’t achieve our resolutions is a different topic that I promise to write more about, but in a nutshell, it is because we do not write SMART goals and we haven’t developed a “No Matter What” mindset. Resolutions Do work when we do them properly and the first step is to be clear about them, to have that Clarity.
If there is anything in your life that bothers you, or if you want to achieve a new goal in your life, the single most important step is to have Clarity on how that ideal version looks? How does it feel? What are the colors? Be as clear and vivid as possible.
