How do you want to feel when you wake up? Are you happy? Or maybe not so much?
Creating the life, you want, means you wake up choosing how you want to feel. Every single day! Mastering your own mindset means you have control in what you choose.
Have you ever sat down and taken the time to write a vision for 30-days, 6-months, a year or your life?
This was the key thing I did in my life because it helped me choose how I wanted to feel every day. And that continues to be the
Here is the thing, if we don’t feel amazing about ourselves and our lives, every day will feel like a case of the Mondays. As you work towards your goal, you will experience some days of overwhelming, wondering why the hell you are even bothering.
So take some time, and write out your vision for whatever time period of your choosing!
Choose a feeling
Decide that in each moment of the day you are embracing that feeling. Know that you have a choice when you notice you drift back. Remember your vision.
Knowing how you want to feel and calling it into your day will help you maintain motivation and momentum as you are working towards your goals.
Life isn’t all glitter and rainbows!
I am not one of those people that pretend life is perfect because well that’s just silly but in part of why I am writing this book because I still get frustrated. The difference is that I no longer allow it to rule my life.
The moment I decided that I would feel amazing at everything I do, I was able to respond even during challenging times.
It’s always about choice!
Chances are when you choose a positive, lighter feeling, you will end your days feeling good. Sure, things happen throughout the day, but you are always in control of how you feel. No one can take that from you.
Will people hurt your feelings by not believing in your goal, probably, but what will set you apart and create a mindset that supports you, is being able to choose how you respond.
Write, write and write some more!
When you write your vision, happiness was either written out or at least implied. No one can make you feel anything you don’t want to feel.
Re-read your vision!
When that happens it’s a good idea to re-read your vision and re-evaluate the steps you are taking. But more importantly, you get to decide how you feel in the morning when you wake up.
So on days when mornings seem incredibly challenging and you don’t want to get out of bed, meditate on it. How do you want to feel today?
Just like how you can choose, how you want to feel, you can also choose happiness! When you write your vision, happiness was either written out or at least implied. No one can make you feel anything you don’t want to feel.
If you are finding it difficult to manage the hurt you may be feeling, grab your journal. Acknowledge how the actions and words of another person impacted you. And then write about how you are choosing to respond to it.
Sometimes choosing compassion is a lot better suited for the situation, because not everyone understands the journey you are on.
