Is this you?
Do you put your life on pause until everything is perfect? This could range from Money, relationships, a new job and even having a baby.
From my own experiences, I can say that the sun and moon rarely align to make that perfect scenario.
If you want to live your life to the fullest now, then here are some simple suggestions to get you started.
#1 Clear the FEAR.
Yep, that is number one. It’s almost always number one, isn’t it? We stop ourselves right before the big move all because of fear. I’m not saying it’s that way 100% of the time but I see it more often than not.
Fear can cause you to make decisions that aren’t always the best. Clear that fear and start making your life plans based on your own internal GPS system. This is your Internal Guidance System. Use it without the fear and see where life’s road takes you.
#2 Get your focus on!
It’s time to get focused. Get a clear vision of what you want in your life. Start a list or maybe a vision board. Doing that makes it real to you and lets the universe know that you are serious about making changes. I like to pull out my board and take a look at it daily. When my goals are achieved I go one step further and move them over to an accomplished board. It feels amazing to see everything that I’ve changed over time.
#3 Stop worrying about the Hows
This isn’t the time to worry about how you’re going to make it happen (see #1 no fear allowed and worry falls in that department). Many times self doubt and insecurities creep up on us, causing that big stall again.
You are enough! If you don’t have all the answers right now you can figure them out. That’s what Youtube is for, right?
#4 Let go of being perfect.
Ok, I’m just going to let you have it plain and clear. You aren’t perfect! None of us are. So let go of that, it’s a time waster and life is too short.
If you are dieting and eat something, not on your meal plan, cut yourself some slack. The same goes for other things. We are not Robots, life happens and as long as you don’t give up altogether, you’re still further than you were before.
#5 Lose the excuses.
I’m sure we could all find excuses for just about anything. It’s time to set that aside and take the first steps toward what you want. If you want it badly enough you will get past this.
Signs you are making excuses. Statements like “Well the problem with that is____________” Or “When I lose this weight I will ________________.” If you’re always finding the problem instead of solutions and waiting for perfection, watch out.
It is wasting your time and sucking your life away.
#6 Get out of your own way.
Take notice of whatever you find yourself stumbling over. These are the blocks that are sabotaging you. Just being aware of them is the first step. And remember that the number one blocks to your success is usually YOU.
Old thought patterns and beliefs about who you are and what you can accomplish play over and over 24/7. Healing those old programs can help in a Big way. You live in a time when we have amazing tools to help clear out that old junk, so take advantage of it and get down to business.
Life is waiting for you to start living it, so get started today! Live your life now.
I love #6 – get out of your own way. Isn’t it funny how some of the old thought patterns stay hidden for a while, but every so often those gremlins come back out to reintroduce fear and negativity? Noticing is step #1 when this happens as you write, and acting on it can propel you to a new level. Thanks for sharing your tips!
Love your visual of the gremlins. That’s totally what they are 🙂 Thanks for stopping by girl! Love seeing you here.
O.k., o.k., o.k. I’m letting go of #3 NOW! I’m not sure how, but… Kidding!. Just a little bit of blog comment humor! 😀 I DO know. Just let it go…
Ha Michelle! I love you girl. I always get a smile when I see your sweet little pic! I need to head on over to your blog and see what’s happening today 😉
Ha! I just got out of my own in way in a BIG way!! Love all six tips Melissa!
Thanks sweet girl! I know, right? That is me sometimes and it’s funny how it sneaks up on you. I can hear myself yelling “get out of the waaaayyy!” Thanks for being here!
Numbers three and four really resonated with me. Sometimes worrying about the “hows” prevents us from taking action and moving in the first place. I can definitely relate to that. That’s a great reminder, and I thank you for that. And, as hard as it is, I have continually worked to work imperfectly, but keeping my feet moving and keeping moving forward. These are all great recommendations and reminders. Thanks for bringing them to us today!
You have a way of saying it ll so perfectly-HA! Only half kidding. You do have a way of saying it so well. The Hows are something I had a real hard time letting go of. I had to take control and wrestle the plan out. When I realized that the bigger plan from the ‘big guy’ above was even better than my own, I finally let go some. It has been an ongoing process though. I love what you said “I have continually worked to work imperfectly.” That is so true for me as well. It is a process 😉 Thanks
I like your idea of getting out of your own way.
Most super successful people have enormous inner wisdom to do so.
It is also no surprise that you will find some people succeeding most of the time compared with others who do not.
That is because they have repeated their “winning” units of thought again and again at the subconscious level. Successful people ,achievers can be winners without even knowing the deeper cause consciously.
They unconsciously repeat their winning units of thought and feelings which transmit winning vibrations of thoughts into the cosmos ,into the environment.
By healing the negative subconscious programs and replacing them with the positive, it could be a life changer in so many ways. Let’s get ‘er done 🙂
Thanks for being here, I always love what you have to say!
Hi there, my beautiful, sweet niece. Ive learned so much from you and always enjoy listening to your insites on life and living. Often things we deep down know, but its always a good refresher coarse. We get overwhelmed with our busy lives, getting bogged down with it all. Refresh our minds with that, which helps us to grow, and become better and happier.
Thank you for being you. I love you and your whole family. Patty
Hi Sweet Auntie!
