Do you know where you are headed? Have you ever been going doing the road and realize you are going the wrong direction? I know I have started down the road that I normally go on only to realize that I now go a different way to a different location.
I had worked at one healthcare system for 16 1/2 years in the West valley in Phoenix. When I changed healthcare systems, all of their hospitals were located in the East valley of Phoenix. For almost two weeks, I would leave my house in the morning and start heading West.... UGH! It was the pattern I had driven for many many years. It took me two weeks and intentional thinking to change my pattern.
Are there paths in your life that you have been going down for a long time and it doesn't even take awareness to travel that path??? Are you ready for a different path? Are you ready for a different result? Here are some questions I asked myself last year to motivate, wake up and look at the paths I was on at the time:
How am I feeling about my current goals?
Do I have goals I'm excited about?
Have I written down my goals?
Am I fulfilled with my life?
Do I have meaningful and loving relationships that fill my life?
Am I serving and creating happiness for myself?
Do I look in the mirror and find something positive to acknowledge myself about? I would acknowledge myself by saying simple things to start with like:
"I love that I choose to wear my retainers every night to keep my teeth straight!"
"Congrats on getting 8 hours of sleep last night!"
Do I feel like I have a purpose in my new phase of life?
My kids are out of the house so what do I want to do now?
Am I excited to live each day? Why or why not?
I knew I was ready to start living my life and get out of auto pilot! I was ready to take control of my life and be very intentional with everything I choose to do! It wasn't easy and it didn't happen overnight! I was all in for the long haul to figure out how to take control of my life, my thoughts and my results. Are you? If so:
Here's your assignment for the week!
I want you to write a letter to yourself from your future self! WHAT!?!? Yep! You can choose any time frame. I choose 5 years the first time I did this activity. My 2025 self wrote a letter to my 2020 self. You might be asking, "How do I know what I will be doing in the future?" The answer is, you get to decide! You can create anything you want! My 2025 self had accomplished so many things, traveled to amazing destinations and had figured out so many things! It was AWESOME!
What will your future self look like? Be creative! Dream! The future is yours! In this letter, you can provide:
Experiences you got to experience.
People you met.
Goals you accomplished.
Love and recognition for all you have accomplished up to this point.
Encouragement to keep going.
Maybe even nudging's of what might need to change to get to your future self.
You get the point. Have fun with it! I can't wait to hear about this experience for you!
I do a free 45 minute session with all of my clients. Are you ready to dream big and change the path you are on?
It's time! It will be fun, I promise!
Let's do this! Your Life Coach Robin P.S. You can do hard things! You ALWAYS know the answer! Trust yourself!
