It is a brand new week! And brand new opportunity to be Living By Design! Today’s LIVING BY DESIGN: Monday Motivation is to remind and encourage you that you can choose every day, every hour, every moment what it is you want to achieve, who you want to be, how you wish to live.
YOU are the one who dreams your dreams. Make them big and juicy – and don’t confine yourself to something small and puny just because you “don’t know how” to accomplish your dreams. You’ll never know how great you can be if you build walls around those dreams because your mind doesn’t know how to achieve them. Force the big thoughts – write them down and give them some of their own power – and push back those walls.
How do you start the process of dreaming big dreams and accomplishing them? Whether your dreams are about business, health, love, family relationships, or anything else you can imagine – you must change something you do daily. If you dream about creating a successful business but don’t know how to get started – don’t spend hours creeping Facebook (or Instagram or Pinterest or…) and get to work developing your business plan. Want to lose weight? Stop eating a pint of ice cream every day – maybe just have a bowl of ice cream every day…and then a half a bowl every day…and then maybe just a bowl once a week. It’s these baby steps that can help you knock down these walls that you’ve built around yourself and accomplish something epic.
So go on, dream your big dreams. Start today with making little changes in your own daily routine – and watch how those walls eventually come down to a level that you are able to step over them and be your own best self.
Tell me in the comments what is one of your goals? And what are you doing each day to work towards that goal? I’ll go first: I am training for a marathon in December, which is a ridiculously amazing goal for me that came out of left field. (Seriously, it wasn’t on my bucket list or anything.) So now I’m running three times a week, doing yoga at least twice a week (these old bones need to be stretched after pounding the pavement) and watching what I eat becasue I can increase my speed if I decrease some of the weight that runs with me.
