We have all be exposed to a lot of adversity and stress from natural disasters and political turmoil that we have no control over. Just when you need it the most, here is a simple list to realign your perspectives and keep you on task in managing the one thing that you can …YOU.
Stay focused on what you can see. This is another way of saying stay in the moment by allowing your energy to flow within the day at hand. You cannot be what you cannot see.
Be empathetic. When you treat others as part of your “life team” you build relationships that are genuine and productive because they are based on truth and understanding. Be of service to others.
Allow your heart to have a say. When we make every decision only from our heads, there is a great deal of overthink and control involved. Allow your heart into the equation and you will readjust your balance and your happiness all at once.
Decide. Make the choice, check the box, and pick one! Stop wasting time and effort on circling around every decision and hone in on a commitment to something. When you don’t decide…it is a decision. Don’t give up your power tool.
Switch lanes from time to time. When you only stay in your lane, you travel the same path. Mix things up a bit and play with the possibilities of renewed perspective.
Ask. How many times have you wanted something and then you never asked for it? No one can read your mind or interpret your plan. Think of it this way…if you don’t ask, the answer is no. You have nothing to lose and so very much to gain.
Schedule a meeting. Every day. With yourself! Check in to see what the highlights of your day are and where you are claiming success and acknowledging gratitude.
Get rid of the thief! If someone or something is stealing your dreams and your aspirations you need to take action. Where does doubt and fear creep into your life and literally take away opportunity? What do you need to purge in order to allow in what’s next?
Ideate. Take the time to let ideas flow, to refill your mind, to tune in. Teach your mind to focus on what you most want. When we are busy being busy we forget to recharge and to create a life. Don’t give away the keys to your mind…allow them to open doors for you.
Use your ending. Your ending is a springboard to a pivot and a change. Every ending is a pathway to a new beginning. Not everything is right for you, not every relationship is for you to partake in, and not every road is for you to travel down. If you envision life as a circle then every ending is a step in the loop toward whatever is next. Take the cherry forward and leave the pit behind!
