'What do I need to do, in order to move towards my goals and dreams to live the life I imagine?'
Stop for a moment. Close your eyes, and take a deep breath. Did you feel your shoulders go down?!
We are so busy bashing away at our keyboard and getting swept up in the torrent that is business and life, that we sometimes forget to stop and question whether we're heading towards our goals and dreams.
It's a condition of the human experience! We get stressed, overwhelmed, and often forget to stop and question why we are doing what we are doing, whether we want to be doing it, and if it's moving us towards the life we want to design for ourself.
I make it a necessity of my daily life to check in and feel what's going on in my heart, acknowledge what is going on in my head and notice my actions. And then I question it if they are all in sync!
That's why I've made some tough business decisions lately, some of what I was doing wasn't feeling good and I didn't feel aligned.
Things needed to change, otherwise I would be unhappy. That takes courage but let me give you this to ponder...
If you imagined yourself looking down at your own funeral, what would you want the eulogy to be full of?
For me, I wouldn't want it to say; Amanda worked so hard, gave it her all, she was so determined, she did such a good job at x,y,z. NOOOOOOOOOoooooo thank you!
I want to people to say she lived, loved, cared, helped people achieve their dreams, made a difference, had adventures, a happy soul and go getter who experienced life and all the joy it brings through family, friends, travel, culture etc.
Stop what you're doing for 30 seconds, close your eyes, take a deep breath, and then ask yourself what you need to do in order to move towards the life you want to live.
Then try asking yourself these two questions at the end of every day for a week;
What strengthened you today and why?
What weakened you today and why?
See what is coming up, and then take baby steps to move towards what strengthens you EVERY SINGLE DAY!
Don't feel stuck in your situation, remember you have a choice, you will find the courage, you are brilliant, and deserve everything you desire.
What do you want the adventure of your life to be?
MAKE IT HAPPEN!
