The Future Is NOW

As I ponder the past couple of weeks, I consider how I am spending my days..

Am I making decisions that are emotionally based or, are they carefully considered with the end in view?

Very often, we make decisions that are based out of fear, or some false belief.

A decision was made and two years later, are you still feeling good about it?

I have learned that if my gut instinct is feeling no then, I must speak my no otherwise, a decision is made, and regrets come.

I am learning  through this experience that letting go, releasing those “would have”, “should haves” are also  important for moving forward.

Our learning always happens when mistakes are made. Always

Every choice we make, action we take, will have a future result.

Take eating, if I carelessly put anything into my mouth, I will end up sick or just plain tired with no energy to do what I need to do.

Life without planning is no life at all

Are you planning for your nest egg? If not now, when?

If you fail to plan, plan to fail

What does the next five years look like for you?

Start an action plan by writing down 3 goals for the next five years.

There is something that happens when   you write your goals down,

start dreaming again.

Dare to dream again,

React or Respond?

I have heard that what we focus on actually grows, and when it does, we shouldn’t be surprised at the harvest we get.

Look at your life now. It’s a culmination of every belief, and choice that you have made because of those beliefs… Sobering right?

We can look at any aspect of our life and see the “results” of our beliefs..

I have been working on controlling my emotions rather that letting them dictate my actions, I have to admit, according to  my present situation, it’s a result of living according to my emotions.

I have avoided doing the things that I said I would do by making excuses based on how i feel at the moment, ” I don;t feel like it” I’m tired” …..  it’s like saying “The dog ate my homework.”

I don’t know about you, but when I stick to my word and do what I said I was going to do, I always feel confident..

This is key to everything..

How then should I respond to the fact that I can control my emotions?

Something happened the other day. I had to a “talk” myself out of a very negative reaction.

I could literally feel every cell getting riled up.. I decided that I was going to control this emotion. Not react, wait and  consider the truth of the voice I was hearing..

We all have two voices speaking in our mind  we get to choose which on we will listen to.

In the past, I would have reacted but this time I waited, and quietly considered.

I choose to think well of the dear ones in my life instead of looking for the negatives and judging .. I choose to understand first.

I ruled over my negative emotions. What a feeling!!

To respond with understanding instead of reacting according to my negative emotions.

What are you working on this week? Pick one thing to improve on and watch your world change.

 

Have a wonderful, week
