Hey Dreamcatcher :-)
Oh my, Oh my…Who knows that? Especially at the beginning of the year. We want to make a change, we are so pumped up with willpower, we are motivated until…Daily life kicks in.
But! We have made a commitment to finally start that creative project!
A creative project requires time, inspiration and a lot of times: money. Agree?
Every single one of us goes through this vicious circle of change.
-> We are fed up with how it's going
-> We make a decision to make a change
-> We initiate and are motivated
-> We get anxious and forget why we have been wanting to make a change
-> If we are not aware, we fall back into the old patterns
Some small, yet significant daily Challenges might be:
You're invited to an event and it takes longer than you thought, so the time you planned on the next morning is gone because you need your sleep.
You've got a new project at work with a fix deadline and you need to work longer, so you can't go to that class on Wednesday evening.
Warren Buffet once said: The Difference between successful and very successful people is that very successful people say no to almost everything.
You can not change the circumstances you're in but you can always!!!choose your reaction.
How can you handle those challenges?
The event where you meet people you're going to see again next week?
Setting priorities at work, start working on laser focus mode or delegate to get the important stuff done by Wednesday evening?
But what about the big ones?
Again, we are in control of our reaction to every challenge that we are facing.
The key here too is awareness. Have you been wanting to get that creative project off the shelf, but then something big happened in between that seems to make it almost impossible!
First: stay gentle with yourself
Second: one little step everyday can take you a very very long way
Third: if you look back, what big challenge turned out to be a big blessing? I'm sure you'll find at least one
One of the official definitions of Change is: a call to prove or justify something. Do you see that this definition already is a challenge?
In telling ourselves that we need to prove or justify something builds up pressure, doesn't it? To whom and why do we need to prove anything? Is there a chance for the following procedure? Try to look at your future challenge with following end in mind: I am building my personal brand new ending in taking action right now.
Quote: Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending. Marcus Aurelius
I support you in setting goals, working with you on your limiting beliefs that pollute your dreams and in unlocking that creative potential you have in you :-)
Big hugs to you,
