Do you consider yourself intelligent, capable, and kind?
Is your life in perpetual chaos, and you don’t understand why?
Could it be possible that you’re living your life by accident?
Avoid allowing luck to rule your life.
Put your best foot forward and make a plan, choose a direction for your life.
A direction that lights you up! That gives you purpose and ignites your passions.
Take Responsibility for Your Future:
Examine your current situation. How did you end up where you are?
Are you living in the home or apartment you dreamt about? Why not? How did you end up there? Was it the result of long-term planning? Or was it the only place that you could find on short notice that would accept a $99 deposit because you were short of cash?
Consider all aspects of your life.
That includes your career, friends, fitness level, finances, intimate relationship, and so on.
Did you choose what you have, or did you grab at the best opportunity that happened to wander by your awareness?
Determine the type of life you want to lead.
What kind of job do you want?
Where do you want to live?
How do you want to spend your evenings?
How much money do you want to earn?
Describe your social life. Take the time to examine the future you’d like to experience thoroughly.
Write it out in your journal.
Put the first things first. Money isn’t the only thing, but it’s an important thing.
Money is great for solving many of life’s challenges. It’s also a necessary resource for doing many other things.
If you’re having financial struggles, it will make sense to work on your finances first.
Make a logical progression for each part of your life you’d like to change.
If you need to lose 100 pounds, going for a daily walk and eliminating high-calorie drinks would be a good start. After a month of walking, you could add additional exercise and diet changes.
Focus on financial and health issues first. After you’ve gained some momentum, you can address the other parts of your life. Doing this will give you some confidence to keep moving forward.
Have enough discipline to choose.
When you’re confused and uncertain, it is always easier to avoid making decisions.
You don’t want to make the wrong decision, after all.
However, this type of thinking is a trap.
It’s better to make a reasonable choice and give it your best effort than it is not to decide at all.
Action creates change.
Realize that luck isn’t on your side over the long-term.
When you don’t put energy into something, it will tend to fall apart over time.
Whether you’re talking about a fence, a sandcastle, or your life, luck isn’t kind.
The only cure is concentrated effort and energy.
A wooden fence only survives if you repair it and paint it at regular intervals. Even then, it will still have to be replaced at some point.
Your life is no different. Without energy and intention applied regularly, your life falls apart, just like the fence.
NOW is the time to take control of your life and make decisions that matter.
There is still time to create an exciting life with no regrets!
If you find yourself paralyzed with all the dreams you want to accomplish and have no idea where to start, I would be honoured to sit with you for a Free hour to help you break down some go-to steps.
With Love, Coach Stacey
