Today is the first day of the rest of your life. What a lovely beginning! Wherever you are at in life, a fresh start is always a good thing.
The past may be wonderful or it may be painful, but no matter what you are turning a page and beginning a new adventure! It took me a long time to realize that although there were many trials to get through in life, they threw me into a frenzy of growth and development that it became hard to wish those challenges away. And, if everything was always perfect for us 24×7, how would we ever really appreciate the goodness in our lives?
First things first. Take a moment and think about the things in your life you are grateful for. Even if you feel like you are in a rut or handling some really deep difficulties, look out the window – is it raining? Listen to the rain and enjoy the soothing sound of water falling. Is it sunny? Enjoy the blue sky and warmth of our nearest star.
You are here for a reason and my goal is to help you figure that out, or if you are already certain of that purpose, I want to help you achieve your mission in the world. Do you have a mission statement?
We will work on that during the next few days if you don’t, but here is mine:
“To live each day fully with passion, focus, determination. To give the best of me to the day, to the people I encounter and to my work. To learn something new to better myself because in doing so I better humanity. To pursue joy and doing things that make myself and others happy and fulfilled.
From your mission statement, we will unravel the next steps of how to carry that out with action steps. The plan will unfold over time. You don’t have to have all of the answers. Each day you will do what you can with the time you have available to move the needle forward.
I am so happy you are here and that through working together, you will create a Life Project Plan that will be a blueprint to help you achieve all of your goals. Through this methodology, you will identify what steps you need to take and what it really means for you to achieve happiness and contentment in your life.
A lot of people use the word “success” like it is the end all be all. I really don’t like to apply that as a measure to my life. The measure I believe we should all apply is our personal fulfillment, happiness and contribution to this world. That could involve lots of wealth and physical abundance as a sidebar, but the real truth is that we can be truly happy with or without “stuff.” It is a life well lived, close connections to family and friends, good meals with great conversations and making a difference in the lives of others that gives us a sense of fulfillment.
Welcome to a new day my friend. Over the next 30 days I hope to embark on a journey that compels you to grow and become who you want to be. To have your ULTIMATE life. Throughout our time together I will share tools, techniques and stories that inspire your heart and bring peace and purpose.
To your best!
