Happy New Year to you all! How are you? Hope you’ve had a restful time away and are feeling super psyched to get into massive soulful action on the year to come. I really feel this is going to be such a great year, where so much of the hard work we've all done, really grounds and will keep blooming, so long a we stick with it.
I wanted to give you two things today to help you start the year right. This morning, when i got up to do my morning routine, I opened my iTunes and there were two mp3's sitting right on top of each other. Tony Robbin's 15min Priming exercise, which i did. And straight after that, the 15min self love meditation I recorded recently started playing...and you know what? I did the whole thing and felt even better after i did that today than priming. It's a really powerful daily alignment tool and it's below if you want to give it a go.
I later went on to making a few adjustments to my yearly plan (according to the yearly planning tool here also below, in terms of what months i'd inject extra focus in to speaking and which into having articles published. Literally no sooner had I put a few extra specific points for specific months to paper, than i get up and take a break, come back, take a look at Facebook and people have just tagged me for a few speaking and writing opportunities before I've even had a chance to do anything or speak to anyone. More than that, I then went and logged in on my trading app (and just FYI, I hadn't checked out signals yet today, just started checking out what was good and doing some analysis (as per my awesome teachers), just happen to have logged into just the right place at the right time on a couple of pairs, relative to the financial goals i just VERY clearly defined in the yearly planner below, felt into it, put on a sell and straight into the blue (e.g. a couple of % profit.) These two tools together....powerful stuff i tells you!
Here's the meditation:
And here is the yearly planning tool right here to map your dream year in terms of basic quarterly and monthly themes you’ll work toward and the core actions you will be focusing on by the month.
In my 12 session Business Coaching program, back again by request) we break this down a little further into weekly action you’ll get onto taking and get you thinking in specific quantities as well as qualities of what you need and want to achieve and experience in your business and life this year.
It’s part of the picture to envision how we want to look and feel when life is rocking at the end of the week of you having seen and delivered awesome value to that many clients you wanted to see and to feel into how good you feel at the end of that week.
But it’s another to give the universe a very specific order to work with FOR that vision, a bit like if you were ordering something from, say, Wish or Uber eats online. Take Uber for the sample....In order to get food, you need to feel into what you want to eat, to pick a restaurant that delivers that, then look at their menu and pick an item or items and then specify that you want those ones , at that price. Then you complete that order and a delivery driver brings it to the address you also had to specify and you meet them at the door. Unless you get specific about what you want and from where and who’s going to deliver it, how can the uber driver bring you food?
It’s the same when you’re planning your year. The universe wide delivery app needs you to get super specific with details on things like exactly what you want to do and give, with who, how much of it do you want to do, what qualities it has to have, where, for how much and when....THEN all the pieces of the puzzle can align and the delivery drivers of life can bring you the parts of your order AND then you have to show up at the door (or the mailbox), available to receive it. Then implement....eat, rinse, repeat. Be the things you wanted to be, experience the things you want to feel, do the acts of living a business and life you love.
Don’t worry so much first right now about the super detailed weekly daily nitty gritty of the “how” , as much about just putting in your yearly order if you haven’t already.
The how will come to you after you've downloaded/envisioned/created this order, and each and every day when you attune and align. And as life unfolds and possibilities and people come towards you and you follow the flow. Like I did today.
In the early phase of business, it’s about first getting you IN action and scheduling in tasks so you DO get them done and are accountable to having done them. Then, the busier you get, the more we can start looking at how to improve upon your use of the time you have available throughout the year.
Make sense? Let me know if there’s anything else I can help out with. Happy to help.
Until next time, have fun, take care.
