ARE YOU WHERE YOU WANT TO BE IN LIFE (Part 2)
Part 1 gave you a few ideas about where to begin your journey from where you are to where you want to be. After you have meditated, set your intention, cleared out any limiting beliefs (if you’re not sure how to, I can help), and discovered your life purpose, you now need to communicate it to others.
Telling Your Story
The words you choose when communicating your vision are vital to make it materialize. When you tell your story to others with enthusiasm, it may inspire them to help you achieve your dream by offering support or advice. Doing this gives you the necessary feedback to hone your vision to clarify what you want precisely.
What to Communicate
Answer these questions in your journal:
- What do you most want others to know about your vision, and why?
- How do you want people to feel after you’ve told them about your vision?
- What do you fear most about the response you receive from them? What is the best feedback you could hear?
- Do you want others to help you after you tell them about your dream? How would you ask them?
Setting SMART Goals
SMART is an acronym used to set your goals, dreams, or visions in a measurable and timely manner so you can track if you’re on course to achieve them. What does SMART stand for?
- S—SPECIFIC: What do you want to accomplish? Why is it important to you? What actions will you take? When will this be accomplished? Who, if anyone, needs to be involved?
- M—MEASURABLE: How much (money, time, etc.)? How can you measure your progress? How will you know when you’ve accomplished it?
- A—ATTAINABLE: Is your dream achievable? Do you have the necessary skills, talent, time, or other resources required?
- R—REALISTIC: Is your vision meaningful and in line with the direction you are headed in life? Is it applicable to what you are working to achieve?
- T—TIME-BOUND: Is there a specific deadline for you to complete your dream or vision?
Be clear about your vision by listing five goals essential for its completion. Write them down in your journal as a proclamation such as, “I will do whatever it takes to…” Next, place the order for completion timewise. Notice if one needs to be completed before moving on to another.
Once you know what it will take to create your vision, you now need to communicate it to bring it into form. If you need help with it, ASK! If you don’t ask, the answer is always NO! When you talk about your goals, visions, or dreams, they are at the forefront of your mind, and you place your attention on them.
Talking, sharing, speaking, dreaming all bring attention to whatever it is you’re creating. Writing affirmations and then sharing them with others keeps the focus on them and creates enthusiasm with others who may help catapult you in manifesting them.
Remember one thing—don’t die with the dream still inside you.
After setting your goals and communicating them to others, you now have the tools to enhance those relationships and enrich them. Part 3 focuses on the steps you need to take to fulfill your heart’s desires.
