Who you are begins with what you do
Take a moment to re-read the title. What does it mean to you in your life right now?
What do your actions advertise to others about who you are? What is happening in your life at this moment - today?
Picture yourself in a helicopter looking down at YOU right now! What can you do to expand your world for the remainder of 2011? What can you do in the next 4 months to help you achieve your ultimate aim?
I have asked myself these and other questions throughout my life. The ultimate conclusion would shriek out loud and clear, regardless of how I may have tried to get away from the fact. To become, involves the (sometimes arduous) task of taking action. It involves doing.
Regardless of what is happening in your life right now, what you want to do or where you want to be, the key to constructing your reality lies in your ability to apply fervent and positive action.
As defined in the Oxford English Dictionary, action is ‘the process of doing something to achieve an aim’.
First things first, what do you want your future to be?
What is your vision? How far ‘out there’ is it? What can you do to bring it closer to the here and now? What can you do today to start the process?
In the comically titled book ‘Eat that Frog’, motivational Guru, Brian Tracy asserts that many of us spend much of our time on ‘low value tasks’ because we have not devoted any or enough time to brainstorm and set specific things to work on. This could be things as simple as:
- Making telephone calls to enquire about a course, job or business activity
- Attending events, reading or having dialogue on matters that enrich and empower us
- Self manage by diarising and action planning on a daily basis.
Banish the ‘maybe one day’ belief!
Here is a life-mapping exercise that, if followed by daily action, will support the process of transforming your life. This will help you to become more of ‘who you are’ and ‘who you would like to be’ in 2011.
Daily action planning and the accomplishment of journey goals will transcend you to another level of being - to another level of you.
For the purpose of this exercise, you will need a pen, paper and approximately 30 minutes to yourself. Think of this time as ‘life planning’ time that is crucial to you living on purpose.
