Do you determine the course of your life based on what other people think? Most people would respond rarely or never, and the truth is probably closer to sometimes or quite often. Here’s the thing, our natural inclination is to believe what other people say or do must be right if everyone else is doing it. The desire to fit in and feel accepted overshadows our own unique desires and paths. The irony is that our personal path is where we find the most satisfaction and joy.
In this week’s Sun-day design I want you to choose your own path, take a step that moves against the grain. Go to the movie theatre on your own, attend this season's ballet, sing karaoke…sober, or moonlight as a burlesque dancer. Choose some activity that's fun, exciting, and unique for you.
Join me in creating your path for next year at the Design Your Year event next month! There are only 15 seats available. Click here for a sample agenda for what the day holds.
Over the past few weeks I’ve been in more photo-shoots than I have in my entire life! OKAY so it was two events, nonetheless they were huge and completely against the grain for me. I chose these new, out of my box activities to secure the business path I chose for me. As I encourage my clients to stretch beyond their comfort zone I want - rather I need to do the same in my life. Securing my business path means I have to walk the talk, design ME, and be the coach I would want to experience.
Moving against the grain in big or small ways serves as practice for the bigger decisions you have make in your life – but we’ll start with just this week. First, come up with something you want to do for yourself, that thing you haven’t been able to convince your partner or any of your friends to join you on. Pick a day this week to just do it. For once turn down the dial on planning, rationalizing, and excuses.
Now it’s your turn! Leave a comment and share the adventures you plan to secure your path this week.
The life we experience is designed to help us grow. My wish is that you learn from me as much as I learn from you. Share your life lessons and let's build together.
