So now that you have created your vision for success – life, business, work, play, relationships – let’s check in that you are truly aligned with your vision. Let’s make sure that you have the mindset and the heartset that you believe it is absolutely possible for you, and that you CAN LOVE INTO REALITY AND ENJOY IT.
So before we go further, let’s check in with your vision –
- Did you engage ALL of your senses when creating it?
- Did you allow for dreams and expansions?
- Is this what you really want or did you limit yourself to what felt safe and realistic?
- Where is your mindset and heart-set with this vision?
- Are you truly aligned with your vision – believing it is possible and that you are committed and invested in its becoming real?
These are some tough questions. Be honest with your answers. They will identify where you have blocks, limiting beliefs, stuck energy, past failures and doubts. Now you know what needs to shift if you want your vision to come to life and reality.
Now I get that your vision may have nothing to do with blogging and that’s perfectly fine! Yet the advice that Ryan shares in this book is spot on for success in ANY vision you have! So take his advice and replace “blogger” with “your vision.”
Here are some highlights from this book that attribute to Ryan’s phenomenal success as a blogger – and by the way I attribute to my own successful vision of creating, living, and loving a life I choose which includes my business. I have absolutely grown a life and a business in harmony with my soul which is what I help you do!
Meditate every day.
Get still and quiet and let the silence speak to you and show you old, outdated and limiting thought patterns. My views on meditation: There are many ways to meditate. Try different styles, giving each one at least a week to see if will work for you. Find one that works for you and stick with it, every day. In this post, I describe several ways to meditate.
Get clear on what you want.
Ryan is a huge believer in being very clear on who your blogging audience and message, and why your are blogging. In a general why you want or are doing anything. This sense of clarity will fuel your vision. So important in anything you do. I have been saying for years, you get what you want whether you know it or not. So know what you want. Be clear and aware of what you are asking and putting out to the universe and the people around you.
Move every day.
Our bodies were designed to MOVE. Sitting at a desk all day is not ideal and yet we all do it. So do what you can and start some movement practice.
Go for a walk. Ride a bike. Dance. Practice yoga. Do something that you enjoy and that moves your body!
I used try to do everything in the morning before working, yet I’ve discovered I’d rather mix it up. So for me – yoga in the morning. Writing, and desk work. Go for a walk, or 30 minutes on my paddle board or bike ride. Of course in the summer, I have more options. As winter approaches may switch up the outdoor stuff for indoor classes.
It doesn’t matter what you do, just do it! Switch it up. Keep it interesting and fun.
I found this awesome 6 minute video -Yoga at Your Desk! Come who can’t take 6 minutes every couple of hours and do this. Don’t stay at your desk all day. Take breaks. Walk around. Stretch. Breathe. Thanks to My Girly Pants for this find!
Unplug every day and more.
Step away from technology. Turn off you phone, computer, ipad, kindle, nook. While technology is wonderful, it can become overwhelming, addictive, and all-consuming. That is not healthy for anyone on any level!
I find that the more unplug, the more productive I am when I am turned and tuned in to technology. There are days, I just need to be in nature, with friends and family, and being present with myself and my experiences.
Hands down, every time, I give myself permission to unplug, rest, live, laugh, enjoy – whatever it is I need – I do it – and then I am a powerhouse when I am connected to writing, healing, coaching, mentoring, social media, creativity. It all just flows. Give yourself permission to unplug.
I used to think that only some people were creative. That’s so not true! We all are creative in different ways. The more we explore and play with creative outlets, the more creative we become AND the more productive. Pretty sweet, huh?
I have seen more clients find their mojo, their joy, and their business grow, when they took time to play with creative outlets. I can personally tell you it, it’s made a huge difference for me. I paint. I sing. I write. No expectations. No worry about perfection. Just for the fun of it. Go ahead and try it.
So to sum it up. Today is a new day. Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow is not here. Every moment you get to begin again, make new choices that can either move you forward, take you backwards, or keep you stuck. It’s your choice! What do you choose today, right now?
