How to find the time you never lost
Hopefully by now you are starting to believe that there most definitely IS ENOUGH TIME to get stuff done, its just a matter of prioritizing and using time to your benefit.
Time is yours to use as you please, But it will not be yours forever. So Use it wisely.
I want to talk about taking initiative and using your power. It is gonna take more than making a list and saying affirmations to make a definitive change in your life. You have built these habits over the years, (some good and some bad) so it will take more than a week or two to break them.
My goal for this series is to change your perspective on time and guide you to the path of using it in a more effective, life changing way!
Whatever your goal is, whatever you dreams are..they are important. It doesn’t matter how small or big they are. Always keep in mind what you want to achieve. Imagine having it in your possession already.
Picture yourself being your goal weight, Owning your own store, Going to your dream job. Take note of how you feel when you imagine living your dream life. Let that fuel you and the actions you take.
So here are a few rules I’ve incorporated in my daily life to help me with Taking Action and appreciating every day that I receive:
RULES FOR SUCCESS
- Keep your eyes on the prize
- Don’t talk yourself out of greatness
- You HAVE to try so JUST START
How many times do you talk yourself out of doing something that would benefit you. Or convince yourself that you can wait to get started on that goal of yours? How many times do you give into the negative thoughts giving you all the excuses you could possibly need?
You have to overpower those thoughts and negative feelings before you do anything else. They are only barriers in between you and everything you ever wanted. I call those limiting thoughts my “Bitch thoughts” lol.
Every excuse I make is derived from some sort of fear. Fear of success, Fear of failure, Fear of money…just Fear plain and simple. I don’t want to live my life in fear and I assume you don’t either.
Remember everything that we’ve talked about. Ask yourself what it is that you want more and always keep your eye on the prize.
Have you taken the first step towards your goals or dreams? If not, Why? What or who is really stopping you?
Speak from experience not from a place of desire.
You can only get to your dream destination if you start walking.
Dreaming and thinking about the process is only the beginning. The real fun starts when you jump off that ledge into a unfamiliar place. You are surrounded by growth and knowledge when you dive into something new.
Many of us are afraid to start new ventures because we don’t know all that we think we should. That is what the JOURNEY is all about. You aren’t born knowing all and grasping life concepts, its something that takes time and practice. Your goals are no different. Get comfortable with the process of learning and soak up as much as you can. You have to do this on the way to success. Waiting only gives you less time to experience, and the experience is everything.
Ahem! Take out last week’s homework assignment please and pass it forward.! (In my best teacher’s voice) haha
Grab the list that we made last week and START one thing on the list. Take a risk and just begin to do something that you’ve been dying to do anyway! Hopefully you’ll feel so good that you complete or at least tackle a good amount of whatever it is.
Step out on the ledge with me…..The first step is always the hardest, but I promise you won’t regret it!
Stay motivated friends,
