How to create your life of choice in 2010

When the market is tight, your diary has gaps in it and you are not as busy as you would like it to be, consider spending  45 minutes on a little self reflection to snap you out of the pity party. Step away from the computer, turn off your phones, email etc. and just spend time with YOU – no interruptions. Here is your plan for the next 45 minutes (or more if you wish):

*  Decide to change one thing about your life – just one

 • Make a list of things that make you happy – minimum list of 100. Resolve to do at least 3 of these things each day for the next 21 days – don’t deliberate, just write.

 • Make a list of how you will know when you have created your life of choice  – what will that look like. If you don’t know where you are going, anywhere will do.

• Diarise when you choose to relax and recharge – make sure you don’t allow yourself to feel guilty for taking time out.

 • Replace “I have to” with “I choose to” •

 * Start de-cluttering your life  – it’s amazing how much “stuff” we collect

•  Don’t’ be a doormat – stand up for yourself and state your boundaries

• Realise that it’s okay to make a mistake- as long as you learn from your mistakes

 •Develop a daily habit of acknowledging your WIN for the day – no matter how insignificant the win may appear to you

• Ask yourself these three questions:

*  IF THIS IS AS GOOD AS IT GETS, IS THIS GOOD ENOUGH?  – makes you realise everything is OK!

* IF I KNEW I COULD NOT FAIL, WHAT WOULD I DO? – if you are not doing it now – when will you start

*  HOW MUCH IS ENOUGH? – when we decide to live a more simple life, we can choose to give more and expect less.

Let’s finish with a Carl Saga quote – “Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.”
