Starting right now…
How are you going to live the rest of your life…
Personally, professionally and spiritually?
What is going to drive you and why?
Is it going to be ambition and success and creativity and productivity and status?
Is it going to be character and maturity and
humility and learning?
Do you want to conquer the world?
Do you want to serve the world?
Do you want to make a difference to others?
Do you want to be in control?
What is more important to you?
The struggle to be a better human being who is flawed and imperfect to begin with?
Your time on earth is limited.
Your days are numbered.
The clock is ticking.
There are only so many hours left.
What are you living for?
What are you going to orient the rest of your life around?
What is going to bring meaning and purpose to your life?
Do you want to spend the rest of your life maximizing your strengths?
Confronting your weaknesses?
When you get to the end…
What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind?
What do you want to be remembered for?
Your life is headed in a certain direction right now and it will stay headed in that direction unless you do something different.
To change the direction of your life requires a higher level of consciousness, mindfulness and a real sense of purpose.
It takes a willingness to self-examine and get clear about who you are, what you want, what you are capable of, how you sabotage yourself and how you desire to show up going forward.
You must take the time to identify your core values, core beliefs, personal standards, and life purpose and make it your daily practice to honor these priorities.
These are the building blocks of the foundation of your life.
These building blocks compound over time either for you or against you.
The more familiar you become with what is most important to you…
The more these energies will rise to the surface of your life and fuel your choices and actions.
The stronger your foundation, the more ability you have to navigate both the opportunities and challenges you will face on the path of your life journey.
There are not many things that are certain in life however there is one thing you can count on…
YOU WILL BE TESTED!!
Your courage will be tested.
Your character will be tested.
Your commitment will be tested.
Do you still want to change the direction of your life?
Are you ready and open to making certain changes in your life?
Keep in mind…
Change is scary.
Change is uncomfortable.
Change is awkward.
Change is hard.
Change typically happens gradually.
Change takes time.
Change is necessary.
Change is life.
Do not underestimate your resistance to change.
The more change you plan to take on…
The more resistance you must overcome.
It is critical to understand that transformation is a process, not an event.
Change cannot be rushed or forced.
The process of consistently nurturing change makes you smarter and more self-aware and helps to fortify your foundation for continued growth.
The ultimate goal is to turn any positive incremental change into a lasting habit which in turn “compounds” in your life as a force for good.
