“I’ve been this way forever and I am fine.”
Fine has to be one of the worst words in the English language. Fine, it’s not good, it’s not bad, it’s fine. It’s boring and routine. But to not be fine – to be happy, to be successful that takes some thinking and planning. So people often settle for fine.
What about living the life you dreamed about as a kid? You were going to be so happy to finally be an adult and do what you wanted to do. Are you doing what you want to do now?
Maybe you won’t be that rock star that you wanted to be, but you can be more than fine in living the life you have. You have the power to create happiness, love and success in your world.
Here are 3 ways you can start creating your life:
Let go of the past – We have all had crap that has happened to us. Some is more horrific than others. When you keep reliving what has happened in the past – big or little – it keeps you stuck there. Maybe there is something from the past that you need to get help with to overcome, do it. For the other hurts and embarrassments gently guide yourself away from thinking about them and focusing on where you want to go now.
Define who you really want to be– make a list of words or phrases that describe you as you want to be. Maybe you want to communicate better write good communicator. Then when you are making decisions refer to your list and make sure your behavior is in line with who you are creating yourself to be.
Set boundaries – Boundaries can be seen as selfish but they are really you taking care of you. Letting others run over your boundaries wears you down and makes you wonder about who you are. Have that one client who insists that they can’t meet until 8 PM but your priority is being a good parent and you miss bed time? Fire them. You may feel a bit of guilt in the short term but in the long run you will feel better about making YOUR life on YOUR terms.
You can determine who are you and where you life to go. There is no need to wait to find out because you have the power in you to make your life the way you want it right now.
Keep your head in the game –
