Many people set new goals at the beginning of each year and that’s a good thing, but, if it’s something you’ve done in the past and it hasn’t worked very well for you, or you want to DO something different right now, then give this a go instead.
- write down a list of the thoughts you want to STOP hearing.
- write down a list of the words you want to STOP speaking.
- write down a list of the things you want to STOP doing.
Then say out loud several times, “these things are NOT OK to accept into my life anymore!” and name each one of them as you’re doing it.
Get MAD with yourself for allowing these things to happen, to you and inside of you.
Then do something you’ve never done before – run faster than you’ve ever run before, yell louder than you’ve ever yelled before, roll your fists into a ball and pound on your bed for a longer time than you’ve ever done before. Push yourself to the point of no return … when you know that YOU will NO LONGER ACCEPT these dis-empowering things from happening inside you and outside of you.
When you’re done, when you’ve demanded ALL the emotion that you can to stop things from happening to you and inside you, relax and know … your new goals can be written from an entirely fresh perspective NOW.
REVELATIONS – I laugh as I realize that answering these few simple questions TRUTHFULLY were all that it took to move me from being a single mother with a pleasant enough life to being a woman with a grand vision for what is possible in her own life and the lives of others, and more importantly, someone who is looked up to for advice and copied as a role model. That wasn’t my initial goal, just a pleasant side effect of “going for what I truly wanted”, no matter how ridiculous it might sound, how big it might seem, how silly it might look or how stupid I might feel.
Maybe you would like to make some new decisions too!
And take a NEW action to cement that goal in place!
As Tony Robbins said, “the most important rules I ever adopted to help me in achieving my goals were those I learned from a very successful man who taught me to first, write down the goal, and then to never leave the site of setting a goal without first taking some form of positive action towards its attainment”.
May you become so angry and frustrated with your small minded thoughts and the small minded thoughts of others, that you will no longer allow them to enter your mind.
May you become so conscious of your words that you will only allow the empowering ones to come out of your mouth!
May you become so inspired by your journey that the destination will be a pleasant side effect.
