Because you will make it that way.
Really? Sounds easy, right?
Believe me, it can be done - it’s YOU that makes the difference.
Let me tell you a story.....
A few years ago I was stuck. Completely stuck. I had come out of a bad, bad, yes bad, relationship, had too many people die around me and had numerous long-lasting encounters with some rather nasty people.
I truly wondered what life was all about and whether I would ever be happy again.
I had no direction and no energy... for anything. I was depressed, had lost my self esteem and honestly didn’t know what to do to change my life.
That was until someone told me to get a notebook and start dreaming about my future and start writing down my goals.
Ha, I said, I don’t need to do that - I’ve always been a goal setter and achiever, always.
As I spoke those words I began to face the fact that at that very moment I didn’t have a clue where I was going or what I wanted. My life goals had faded into obscurity and been replaced with self-doubt, pain and misery. I had no idea where I wanted to be in 5 minutes let alone 5 years. I was lost.
Reluctantly and rather flippantly I decided to take the advice, primarily because I really don’t like having to admit failure.
This advice changed my world.
As I journaled away in that little book I began to see glimpses of a little light at the end of my tunnel. I could see a ray of sunshine in my blackness for the very first time.
My dreams were outrageous, scary and embarrassing to admit. Even so, a structure for the future began to emerge. I regained some hope as I began to ask myself what steps were necessary to achieve my dreams.
You’re probably waiting for me to tell you that since then I have been outrageously successful and my life is perfect? Yeah? Well no, but this process of putting pen to paper forged a new pathway towards full realisation of the dreams within me.
I began to believe in myself again.
That little book now lives in my bedside drawer and I pull it out often and flick through the pages. I also update my goals and dreams regularly, as things have changed with time.
I am so thankful for that person who suggested to me to buy that little book. I’m also incredibly thankful that I didn’t let my stubborn pride get in the way of me actually doing the task that was set.
Now is the time to make the decisions for our future; just as now is the time to plan for the week ahead.
Go get a notepad, your phone, computer or whatever you want to use.
Dream your dreams - write them down.
It will change your life.
Love to hear your thoughts ...
