Last week I shared with you how every year to help me to stay committed to taking action, I create a theme.
I invited you to do the same! How did it go? I would love to know :)
This week I want to share with you how to combine the process of creating and manifesting what you desire in 2017 with creating a theme so you begin creating your goals.
A word on goals. Goals use to be a scary word for me. SO much expectation and structure. However, after self-publishing my first book, Reclaiming JOY, in 6 months, I realized goals are valuable and necessary! Quite simply, goals provide structure and a road map for action. And when you have lots to get done, structure and a map are keys for success.
In 2017 I want to experience more fun. In wanting to have more fun, my actions need to be centered around a goal that will make this happen. That goal is adventure.
Adventure has many "faces". It starts with me having an adventurous spirit, which I do! From here, I allow adventure to inform my thoughts, words, and deeds. Remember, thoughts are energy. Our thoughts are the causes of our life. Our experiences are the effects. In order to change our experiences, we must change our thoughts. Yes, this is one big reason why I meditate...to master my thoughts :)
I will tell you having adventure as a goal is a powerfully fun and eye opening practice.
Why? Mainly because it reminds me to lighten up in my head. While I am immensely playful like my cats, I am also very mentally intense and driven to succeed in all areas of life. Big goals!
Having adventure as my goal, I am reminded to reprogram my mind in order to see the world with new eyes.
So, instead of bringing my intensity to everything, I get to bring my sense of lightness, fun, creativity, curiosity, and play. This makes my big goals so much more fun to go after.
And, I get to say thank you, thank you, thank you (my theme this year), for the experiences that provoke my intensity so that I may learn how to bring in my sense of adventure. Wow, I feel lighter already!!
What is one of your goals for 2017?
If you want to share with me, thank you, yes, I'd love to know!!
Share the love...forward this blog post to a friend :)
