How to Create Your Best Day Ever…Every Day
I get it. Believe me.
If you’d rather create your life instead of reacting, you need to be clear on one thing. How you want to feel every day.
I didn’t understand how powerful this kind of clarity could be until pretty recently. I was on a call one day with my former coach and I was going on and on about different opportunities and how I didn’t know what to do or whether any of them were a good idea…on and on, blah, blah, blah.
In the middle of the conversation, she stopped me and said, “How do you want to feel every day?”
I had never stopped to consider that THIS might be important to know.
My assignment from that call was to choose 3-5 feeling states that I want to have every day.
I started writing. And the list was long. Very, very long. But as I studied it, groups of words started to emerge and from each group, I was able to pick one overarching word. I made my list of 5 words (I call them Lighthouse Words).
If you’re wondering why this is so important, here’s the deal. Now, when anything comes my way (an opportunity, a request, an unhealthy choice), I’m able to consider it and see how it aligns with my 5 words.
If it doesn’t align with my Lighthouse Words, I don’t do it.
Plain. Simple. No drama. Maximum mojo!
I no longer allow my life be a ping pong match. I let Ease, Generous, Healthy, Powerful and Joy do the heavy lifting for me!
How about you? How would you like to feel every day? I invite you to spend some time with this…then pop over to my blog page and let me know what words help YOU create your best day ever…every day.
