Perception – It has been often said that “Perception is Reality.” How do you feel when you have to do something? What about when you get to choose to do something? Use the right language “I get to/ I choose to” rather than “I have to, I must do” – and then create within yourself that same attitude and personal belief.
Plan – If you leave your house without planning your direction, how likely are you to arrive at your desired destination? Create a specific action plan that allows you to take the first step in the right direction, and provides you with the knowledge and knowhow to keep moving in that positive direction. Also, remember to be realistic and flexible!
Prioritize – Keep this in mind: If you do not take care of yourself, you cannot take care of others! It’s OK to be selfish sometimes, and making time and taking time to participate in activity actual benefits you in the long run; when you create that wellness for yourself, you will find that you have more time, energy and vitality to help others.
Play – Make goals that are joyful not only for reaching the product or outcome, but for enjoying the process - the journey. Have fun along the way and focus on goals that are truly desirable for YOU. You’re far more likely to succeed at your goals, dreams, and aspirations when they align with your true wishes, interests, and purpose.
