When I was younger I wanted to be a fire breather. I wanted to be crazy and fearless and wear Vegas worthy costumes. I wanted to perform. I wanted magic in my life. as I grew, so did my fantasy world. I lived in a magical world of fairies and oscar winner speeches; I was the youngest filmmaker in history to win best director the same year I had perfect 10’s in the summer olympic gymnastic events. I also ran track. To this day I sometimes get confused about what actually happened and what I imagined. I am ok with that. Somewhere along the way i lost the ability to think that something was impossible.
I admit I can be a classic underachiever. lately I have been thinking about this more and more. is dreaming too passive? Is it possible to manifest the impossible simply by dreaming it so? Sadly I don’t think that it is. Here’s the thing, greatness lives in us all, but those that reach their greatness take specific and repeatable action steps. Their lives are maps. I don’t just mean they create goals and achieve them, I mean they can see this path before them. The yellow brick road is in front of them gleaming. It’s like they are born with or develop this gift of sightedness. I am working on my own 4 step plan to exercise this muscle.
Here’s the plan:
- I am creating a mood board. This will incorporate everything that I want to feel when I get where I am going. For more on this idea check out The Desire Map by Danielle La Porte. My version is slightly different but absolutely inspired by DLP. In a sketch book, I am going to paste photos of how I am feeling and on each opposite page, what I want to feel. I have a monthly check in to make sure that I am on track.
- I am going to spend one hour a day doing what I truly love to do, which is write and create. I have all of these words in my head and I never make time to get them out, and it holds me back, in business and in my personal life. I am happiest when I am working on marketing and content and fun stuff for clients but so often I fail to take the time to work on them.
- In January I am opening up a full-time schedule for clients. I am getting rid of the plan B mentality and focusing solely on what I want to do. I am taking Provoke Wellness to the next level. I am getting out the “horse blinders” and demanding that what I want is possible.
- I am purging all of the “mess” in my life. This includes people that bring me down, clutter in my closet, noise in my head. Everyday I will only let in the things that will move me closer to my goals.
I am setting my intentions and activating now. I am not waiting for the quiet of post holiday bliss. The resonance of inspiration often doesn’t last through February, so it’s time to walk the plank, take a leap of faith and make it all happen!
I want to know what you’re all looking forward to!
