The one thing that will make your dreams come true!
The most important factor to living with intention...intending to live the life you've always dreamed of is....DETERMINATION. You have to be determined to do all the things it will take to get you where you want to go. Even when you don't want to.
It's a word we all know but don't hear that often. It's a great description word though. I love to be thought of as determined. It describes a person who is willing to do whatever it takes to get where they want to go. Don't you want to be known as that? Don't you want your kids to model that? Determination is probably the single most difference between people who succeed and those who don't. When the going gets tough...you still do the work. You still keep your commitment to yourself and do the extraordinary things that others aren't willing to do.
All this week will focus on ways to pump up your determination. How to tap into it and make it work for you. All the things that will keep you on track and make you soar toward your goals. This is the time to ask yourself some questions. What type of person do you want to be? How do you want to be known? What is a word you would love for people to describe you as? What are words that will bring you to the goal you are looking to achieve? That brings me to your three words.
Here's what I want you to do. Write down three words that describe the person you want to be whether you feel you have those attributes at this time or not. Write down these words where you can see them often. Put them on your screensaver or on a post it on your computer or tablet. And ask yourself throughout the day if you are behaving in a way those words describe.
For example, my three words are inspiring, joyful and courageous. These are the words I want to be known for. Once you decide on your words...start behaving as if you are these descriptions. When you come upon times to make decisions, ask yourself...does this take me toward my goal of being inspiring, joyful and courageous? In fact, you can even set an alarm on your phone throughout the day as a check in to see if you are behaving in this way. All the major decisions in your life should be in alignment with all of these words.
These are not your words for life. These are your words for now. And once you start behaving in that way, you can move on to different words. It's up to you when you feel that time will come. The purpose is to keep you on track as to the type of person you want to be. How you want to be perceived. Words that will take you toward your ultimate goals.
So, what are you three words? I would love to see them and help you achieve them! It's Monday already. A brand new week full of possibilities and opportunities. Now go make the most of them. Always remember, you are a badass and I'm cheering you on.
