Today is the day. Today is the day for you to make a new decision about your life.
You have been wanting things to be different. You keep telling yourself they will be.
So why haven’t things changed?
You are not making the right decisions in your life. You believe the choices available to you are all that you have. Either this or that. Your belief system is limiting the options available and therefore limiting your choices.
Many folks just ride out life watching and reacting to what happens to them. Are you one of these people?
It happens, but you no longer have to ride it out. You can be the driver of your life and motivate yourself in directions you only imagined. Use your imagination.
Let’s take a look at 5 years from today. Sit back for a moment and close your eyes. Can you picture yourself 5 years from now? What are you doing? Where are you? Who is with you? What are the emotions?
Now let’s stretch out another 5 years later and visualize your life 10 years from now. What are you doing? Where are you? Who is with you? What are the emotions?
A decade can fly by and before you know it, you will be looking back and realizing nothing changed. But, NOT this time.
Now from 5 years you, look back to today and visualize yourself taking all this in. What decision did you make today? What commitments did you make? What did you do each day that followed that got you to that you in 5 years? Who helped? What did you learn?
Now make a conscious decision about what you want in your life. Better relationships. Become a more conscious parent. Make more money. Lose weight. Get a new job or leave the one you are in. You decide is what is key. Be in control of your life rather than allowing things to just happen. Excuses are just you reacting to bumps in life. Take your life by the reins and direct where you want to go.
Start by making a commitment to some new behavior, emotions or thinking. Whatever it takes to keep you focused. Create a plan and stick to it each day. If you are offered a choice, consider whether it is in alignment with what you want and choose wisely.
Every day you need to make decisions but choose based on what it is you are moving towards so that your actions are congruent to what you value. Saddle up and direct your travels so you do not stand by watching your life take shape. Shape it!
