Creating the Future you Want

futureSome­times it takes me a while to learn some­thing. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m a lit­tle thick-headed, or if it’s because I’m stub­born — or per­haps both!

It’s sort of like the dif­fer­ence between know­ing that eat­ing healthy and exer­cise will help me feel and look great — and actu­ally DOING IT.

One of the most pow­er­ful tools I’ve learned to use is goal-setting. We all know its impor­tance; we all know it works. But how many of us actu­ally sit down and DO IT?

To make it more excit­ing and to encour­age myself to do it this week, I decided to take a dif­fer­ent approach. Instead of “set­ting goals,” I decided to “sculpt my per­fect life.”

I didn’t actu­ally use a lot of spe­cific detail. Instead I closed my eyes and got really clear about how I want to FEEL and how I want to EXPERIENCE my life.

I used first per­son, present tense lan­guag­ing to help train my mind (and soul). Instead of say­ing, “I would like to earn more money” I said, “I am grate­ful for the steady stream of income that I receive, which takes care of my needs and gives me plenty more for sav­ings and for fun!”

Writ­ing in this man­ner to me is like scream­ing out to the Uni­verse and let­ting it be known that this is what I want. Not only is it what I want, it’s some­thing SO impor­tant and real to me that I can close my eyes and FEEL it.

It’s a proven fact. Our brains do not know the dif­fer­ence between fic­tion and real­ity. For instance, if you sit back, close your eyes and think back to a time you were incred­i­bly happy, I’m sure you’ll be filled with euphoric and amaz­ing feel­ings of happiness.

When some peo­ple watch scary movies, they find their bod­ies filled with ten­sion, ner­vous­ness and get scared to even go into their dark bed­rooms after­ward. Some­thing in their brain doesn’t real­ize that the movie was not reality.

I take advan­tage of this lit­tle “fault” of our brain to train it to see MY real­ity. In this way I can sculpt out what it is I want to expe­ri­ence. I don’t know exactly how or why, but it seems that when this process is put into place, the Uni­verse con­spires with me to make it happen.

So why do I pro­cras­ti­nate in begin­ning this process? I guess I’m just human! (Or is it that deep down I don’t believe I deserve what I want? — Stay tuned for more on this sub­ject another day!)

Here below I have shared with you a copy of what I wrote today (http://tinyurl.com/ml55xc3). I have taped it by my mir­ror and intend to review it (and feel it) every day. If there are some things you would like to expe­ri­ence dif­fer­ently in your life, I encour­age you to cre­ate your own list.

If you think you would like some assis­tance in sculpt­ing out your own per­fect life, please don’t hes­i­tate to con­tact me. I’d be hon­ored to help!
