A George Bernard Shaw quote
Some Encouraging Thoughts
So many of us have been on a journey to ‘find ourselves’, whether that be physical or mental. Considering that the definition of the word “find” is to locate or obtain by search or effort, what exactly are we expecting to discover? Answers? Direction? A new me?
Instead of looking in earnest for a version of yourself that already exists, why not start from the beginning and build a brand new you? Who do you want to be? What life do you want to lead?
Now is the time to stop searching and start creating!
Today’s Simple Steps
1. Visualise the best person you can be for a few moments.
Imagine your best friend or closest family member telling you how fantastic you are, how the person you have become is an inspiration. Let them describe the person you have become.
2. Write a short note that describes your future self.
Start with “I am a person who… ” and include the traits or actions that make you so special.
3. Commit to being that person and take at least one step towards your creation TODAY.
Focus on simple changes and easy wins initially.
Don’t forget to use the Enliven Technique to help with your focus and visualisation!
And for even more impact
Read your ‘future self’ description every morning
When you awaken, think of one action per day that will help you become the person you want to become.
