Do You Know What You Want?
WHAT DO YOU INTEND to do, to experience, to express, to be like in this moment, next week, next year? This is the most important question you will ever answer. The answer will change over time as we continually evaluate our innermost desires. Once you know what you want you can evaluate what is working in your life to achieve the goal. Evaluate what is in alignment with your dream of self expression:
Do you believe and think you are on the path to actively live out your sense of self?
Do your words and actions work for or against you? Your words and actions must be in agreement with your desired expression or it will never happen.
Keep doing what works, stop doing what doesn't.
Find a way to act and speak in alignment with who you are and what you want to experience.
For example, Susan decides she wants to be healthy and fit. She evaluates that her lifestyle habits are not completely in alignment with her desire to be healthy and fit. So she looks at what good habits she may have, like walking her dog every day, and taking vitamins. She keeps those habits in alignment and begins to incorporate more actions that are supportive of her sense of being healthy and fit. She decides to eliminate watching so much TV and to take a second walk in the evening instead. She then watches herself to make sure her words are self supportive in nature, such as "I am on a path of health and fitness and I enjoy it!" And avoiding negative self talk- "It's so hard to be on a diet and I hate exercise."
Realize your dreams of self expression by realizing what they are, believing you can reach them,and then following the path of action in alignment that leads to them.
Be true to yourself and be happy my friends-
