11 Jun 1 SIMPLE KEY TO ENJOYING THE JOURNEY!
I have been loving reading the book “Awaken the Giant Within’ by Anthony Robbins. It is filled with so much to learn, to put into practice and to share with others! As I was reading something in there last night, I thought ‘How simple! – I must do this!’ Let me explain….
Is there something in your life right now, which is not bringing happiness/success/fulfillment to you? Think about that one thing for the purpose of this exercise. Now ask yourself these questions:
- “How will you know when this something brings you happiness/success/fulfillment?”
- “What has to happen in order for you to have that?
For example I am sitting here right now thinking I want to be really fit. How will I know that I am really fit? What has to happen in order for me to feel really fit?
The first thought that comes to mind is… I will know because I will wake up with excitement 4-5 times a week to walk, run or do whatever the activity for 40 minutes. I will do it with joy, a big smile on my face and minimal puffing! I’m not sure about you, but as I reflect on this personal rule I have somehow unconsciously created, it is ‘no wonder’ I FEEL as though I will never get there!
I am thinking I definitely want to be more flexible with this rule to feel fit on a consistent basis! So I am changing it to…
By waking up and putting on my running shoes and stepping out the front door for some kind of physical activity… I AM FIT! I can see by being more flexible with my personal rule on how to achieve the feeling of FIT, I will feel fit from the beginning. As a flow on effect of feeling so fit, I know within time, I will be doing it with joy, a big smile on my face and much less puffing! 🙂
“Our personal rules are the
ultimate judge and jury!”
You could be winning and feel like you are loosing because the scorecard you are using is unfair.
We certainly want to use the power of goals, the allure of a compelling future, to pull ourselves forward, but we must make sure that at the bottom of it all we have rules to allow us to be happy anytime we want. I personally think it comes back to creating our vision, setting our goals and making sure we enjoy the journey!
Let’s see how I go with my new journey of ‘feeling fit!’ I would love for you to join me in creating some more flexible and empowering rules around something you want to feel more of on a consistent basis in your life!
