So we are continuing with our theme of creating our year instead of traditional goal setting so grab your journal and ponder the question for this session to add to your blueprint for the year ahead.
What do you want to do more of this year?
So think back over the past year and consider the parts of the year that you particularly enjoyed. This can be something that you did regularly or it can be a one off event that you really enjoyed and makes you smile or feel joyful whenever you think about it.
Is this something that you want to include more of in your life?
So over the past few sessions we have been adding layers of ideas and questions to help you make this a great year without the traditional goal setting and here is another question for you to help create that blueprint even further.
What passions do you want to spend time on this year?
And let's face it, it you are anything like me, your life is pretty full in one way or another - organising family life, running a home, your career or whatever else it maybe for you.
But are you taking any time for yourself to do what you are passionate about?
Do you even know what you are passionate about right now?
I hope you enjoyed creating your theme for the year and making that list of the person that you want to be for the coming year and beyond! In this episode I have another question for you to help you create a great year and that is: What do you want to be known for this year?
So to do this, you need to imagine for a moment that you are at the end of the year looking back over what you have achieved this year. And you can either do this as a journal entry or you can imagine that you are having a discussion with someone you are close with - or even your higher self. Whatever feels good to you...
So in the last episode we talked about creating a theme for the year and I shared what my theme was for 2020 and also what I chose for the last couple of years. Doing this really creates a foundation that gives you focus for the year so if you haven't listened to that episode - number 50. Then please do go back to that one later.
What is your theme for the year? So in the last episode I talked about how we need to let ourselves off the hook when we are not feeling inspired about setting goals for the year. So in the next few sessions I will be giving you ideas on how you can create your year without the traditional goal setting or you can use these ideas as the base of your goal setting when you feel ready.
So do you feel like you can truly be yourself? It was something that someone said to me yesterday that really got me thinking about this. So when you are around your family, friends or work colleagues are you who you really want to be or are you being who you think others want you to be. It is easy to take on other peoples energy and start to just be like the people you are with at the time.
Some time ago when I discovered the 5-Step Manifestation process which I have used for some time now. It has been a great tool for helping me to push forward in so many areas of my life - one of them being this podcast...But it also highlighted how unclear I was about hat I actually wanted. I'd sit down with one of the audios and I would go blank?
Wow, what did I actually want in each of the areas of my life. And it made me realise that if I don't actually know what I want - how is the universe, source energy or whatever higher power there is within me - going to create what I want in my life?
A few weeks ago I changed my 'to do' list to a 'get to do' list. I did this because I found myself getting overwhelmed and frustrated with my long list of to dos and decided to see how it felt to re-frame this. My 'get to do' list helps me to be more appreciative of all the things I have in my life, all the freedom that I experience in so many areas and how much I have access to in my life. Try this and see how your attitude changes when you appreciate that you get to do all those things when so many people in this world just aren't as lucky as you.
So lets talk more about this concept of BE-DO-HAVE because this makes a huge difference in so many areas of our life. Most of us do this back to front. We think that when I HAVE a certain thing, then I will DO this and then I will BE happy or whatever.But this just isn't how it works. We must BE the energy of what we want before we can HAVE it. So we need to BE that energy state and DO what someone who has that thing has already, and then we will HAVE what we want because we are aligned to it. This stops you holding everything apart from you in this future state. We will continue to explore this in some future episodes with more real examples that can help you.
