What do you want your life to be?

July 7, 2020

What do you want your life to be?

 

We’ve been officially in a pandemic for a full quarter and now in an economic recession; all of which impacted our daily lives and led to major adjustments.

We are learning to adapt and course correct;

We can also use this time to strengthen our core pillars, relationships, health, career and more…

What will this new quarter hold for you?

As always, we don’t know what we don’t know.

However…

You can still define certain parameters for yourself.

What do you want for yourself at this time?

 

Back to your basics

 

 

This week I invite you to reflect upon what is important for you.

Once you are feeling in a place of safety and security, ask yourself how you can make this time in your life helpful for you.

Make a list.

  • What is within your control?
  • What can you do about it today?

I will be sharing throughout this week some suggestions as starting points.  Stay tuned!

 

Back to your basics

Basic 1: self-care

 

 

Self-care is not only showering and grooming.

It’s also about nurturing your body and mind, so both work for you and your goals, as a team.

So that you can feel achieved, satisfied, content, productive, validated and [fill in the blanks…]

What can you do this week to refocus brain and mind, so you can be more aligned and focused on what truly matters to you?

 

Back to your basics

Basic 2: having a vision

 

Are you feeling stuck in your job or your relationships?

You don’t know what you want, but know what you don’t want?

What is missing when you feel lost?

==> Having a vision.

Your vision is your light at the end of any tunnel you might be in; and it’s part of what you want your legacy to be.

What do you want to create, and what for?

How will it make you feel [achieved, safe, empowered, proud of yourself, ….]?

How will you know you have it?

 

Back to your basics

Basic 3: intention

 

I decided some time ago to set an intention every morning before I start my work.

What does it mean?

Instead of waking up already worried about all the problems and issues that might (or not!) happen, I decide what I want my day to be.

Then I remind myself of ‘why I do what I do’.

So I am clear about what I need to do, and what are my next steps.  Coming from a place of making choices that are congruent with my values.

See your intention as the place you are coming from, when you want to align your actions with your vision.

 

Back to your basics

Basic 4: responsibility and accountability

 

You are only accountable to yourself.

Unless there is an agreement in place, you don’t owe anyone anything.

This means that you are responsible for making your vision a reality, for taking the necessary steps, learning when you need, and giving credit where it’s due.

When your actions and intentions are aligned with your values, there is no pushing anything; only finding ways to motivate yourself to get to a higher place.
