I was reading this great post (link below) by a friend of mine, Paul Templer, a fellow motivational speaker, about evaluating where you spend your energy to see if it aligns with your desired outcome. It’s something I need to be reminded of daily – to look at where I am focusing my energies – and seeing how they measure up to where I WANT to focus my energies. Often they are out of alignment.
So today I simply ask myself – what is the life I want? What does good health look like for me? What does quality family time look like? What does my dream look like?
And now I look at how I spent yesterday. Oops.
And how I spent the day before. Oops.
And how I am spending today. Oops.
So it’s time to pick up the eraser – no, can’t go back – the pen, and write a new ending. It’s time to STOP focusing on this distraction, and START focusing on the goal. One moment at a time.
We are not the readers of our fairy tales – we are the authors. We can create the life we want. Or at least get pretty darn close!
What about you?
Here’s Paul’s blog – please read it – you might find renewed strength there. http://motivational-speakers-review.com/2012/05/05/health-and-wellness/time-to-put-on-my-big-boy-panties#comment-1029
