Let’s do a little experiment today. Imagine today is the last day of next year or if you read this in the middle of the year, imagine it is 12 months from now… so put in the date 12 months from now. We are taking today for this example.
It’s December 31st of the year 2017 and you are …. (write down where/what/who you want to be 12 months from now)
Now answer the following: What would you need to have DONE and who would you need to have become in order to be the person you are DELIGHTED TO MEET on December 31st, 2017?
Please, do yourself the favor of writing this down while we wait for you. Try to think a little outside the box.
I hope you needed more than one sentence for that little exercise because the more detailed you describe “what happened” in the coming year, the more likely it is to really happen.
REMEMBER, WHAT YOU FOCUS ON EXPANDS
ONLY WHAT YOU HAVE IMAGINED BEFOREHAND CAN ACTUALLY MANIFEST!
Just think of how a house is created. First, it’s an idea in someone’s head, then it is roughly drawn on paper. As planning progresses the drawing becomes more and more detailed until one day the building begins in the physical world and stone by stone (remember, I am European and we build stone houses) the building is created just the way you can create your dreams.
To help you, here are the areas in your life you might want to grow, change, contribute, serve, or learn in:
- Personal Growth
- Physical Fitness…
Brainstorm what you want to achieve in all these areas of your life. What is closest to your heart?___________________________________________________________________________________
And the most important question you need to ask and answer yourself is ….
AM I REALLY WILLING TO TAKE ALL THE NECESSARY STEPS TO ACHIEVE MY DREAMS???
Take YOUR TIME to reflect and be specific when you “build” your vision for 2017. Be honest and truthful to yourself, especially when you answer the “most important question”. Always remember, you gravitate towards your most dominant thoughts and aspirations!
Have an amazing 2017 and beyond!
