How is your energy to motivate yourself towards your dreams?
Do you feel like you are often chasing your dreams instead of magnetizing what you desire?
Are you familiar with nagging questions that have no answers?
– You are pressing so hard for an answer you aren’t listening to the messages coming to you? All the subtleties?
1. Do you write down your goals?
Over the years I’ve made lists of goals many times. And tossed them. Or found them years later and was happy to see how many I’d completed.
Isn’t it a rewarding experience to achieve a goal?
Don’t you want to scream and shout and take a friend to dinner?
BUT goals are nothing without action!! Motivate!
I actually hate goal lists because sometimes they remind me of what a slug I am. Sometimes they demotivate me instead of motivating me.
What is a goal without action? Just words. Sometimes words on paper.
-And what are goals?
-Does everyone need them?
-What to use them for?
I didn’t grow up in a family that expected much from me but I expected much from me.
I expected to go to college, enjoy a happy career, and work from home.
But I never wrote down those goals, but I had dreams. I had visions of goals I’d love to fulfill. Many of them felt out of reach. They stayed in the back of my mind.
Years later I did go to school, got a great education and a beautiful career.
I’d done everything I dreamt of doing. I’d travelled the world. Climbed in the Himalayas Made my living as an artist. Camped out all over western US but when I’d accomplished those goals.
What was next?
Once I achieved my goals, what else did I want?
Goals are motivating.
They are stimulating.
They inspire us with visions of the future.
They bring the future alive for us.
The more we resonate with our goals, the more likely we are to live them out.
Motivate. Stimulate. Inspire.
2. How do you Motivate yourself?
What gives you the DRIVE to make life happen?
What creates that – kick ass attitude that you are fired up to do something and you follow it to the end – obstacles and all. NO MATTER WHAT?!
What THRILLS you?
What buzzes your mind when you’re lying peaceful at night so you have to get up and write it down? Then you can wait to expand on it the next day?
MOTIVATE! CREATE! DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!
3. How are you with Manifesting?
- Maybe you are asking for money to manage your bills. You are calling in a decrease in your rent or a bargain on something you want to buy. But that doesn’t exactly pay the rent
- Are you clear about what you choose to bring into your life?
- Do you write down the details?
- Do you play it in your mind?
- Do you experience the emotions that go along with your goal?
To have the life you want, you have to be proactive.
You have to respect your desires,
let them rise up to the surface and
be proactive about making them happen!
Take charge like a Queen!
Reign over your own life!
Embrace what you choose.
Create steps and
GO FOR IT!
But not everyone does. Some people whine a long time before they take steps in the direction of their dreams.
You have to MOVE.
– When you don’t , don’t you feel stuck in a rut?
– Can you see how, sometimes, you stay in a situation for too long?
Some people suffer physically when they stay stuck for too long.. Your body lets you know you’re not happy and that is your heads up.
4. MOVE PAST YOUR COMFORT ZONE!
I stepped out of my comfort zone
I got married.
My comfort zone did NOT include marriage.
No where on the scope.
Not in another country, not another world or on another planet.
I was scared shitless
Once I took that step, I felt trapped.
I couldn’t move.
I couldn’t breathe.
I didn’t know how to invite him into my world, how to include him in my vision fro myself.
After years of doubt, self doubt, oh I should love him more, I finally came to honor myself and my own needs. I came to honor me – my experience, my story – the parts I love and to transform the parts I wasn’t crazy about. I came to own my experience, who I am, what I do. I love myself. I had been more concerned about his happiness, than my own, since I met him.
And I’m not a selfless creature. I have no boundaries. I am challenged with how to give but keep some for myself. On my own, I felt I could succeed in anything. As part of a couple, I was debilitated. It felt like kryptonite.
And so I learned the lessons of love, divinity, and honoring myself.
5. Honor yourself
While working in Chinese Medicine I treated, mostly, women. I found that women often disempower themselves. – with marriage, motherhood and menopause being big markers for this.
Women are more empathic than men. Women tend to be very sensitive to other peoples needs. It’s often easier to take care of someone else than to take care of yourself.
Every woman – every person deserves to live and honor the divinity within themselves. To share this best part of you with the world. That isn’t to say you are being selfish.
What I’m saying is, when we live in a vibration of honoring and loving ourselves,
when we look at our choices and our actions and ask ourselves – am I honoring myself,
You deserve and require that the answer is yes
-are you honoring your needs?
-are you honoring your choices?
-are you honoring your partner, your family?-
-are you honoring others in my life?
-are you honoring the planet?
YOU CAN ONLY CHOOSE TO HONOR THESE THINGS AFTER YOU HAVE HONORED YOURSELF
Otherwise, what do you have to offer?
If you are not living in respect of the divine light within you, how are you making choices with integrity?
Are your choices just knee jerk reactions?
Do you choose to move beyond your doubts to know what you want and to DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT?
Do you choose to honor yourself for all you are?
Where you are resistant to accept yourself?
Are you willing to transform your perceptions and open some doors?
Are you ready to grow and to give to you?
Are you willing to step out of your comfort zone?
Are you ready to up level your life?
Are you ready to discover what really matters to you, what motivates you to take action and DO IT?
