There is no single word in the English language that fully encapsulates the meaning of dharma. The perspective of dharma I want you to seek this week is to realize your dharma or "right way of living". I'm not suggesting there is one right way of living for all, there a way of living your life that feels right to you.
This is the dharma you get to design, and figuring out the right way of living is just one part of the process. The second and most essential step is knowing what to do when your plan goes awry and that right way of living seems impossible to live up to. In this week's Sun-day design I want you to design your dharma by making sure your plan includes your Plan B.
How do you design your dharma? You know my answer: Dream. Discover. Design. Love your dream, be clear about your desire. Discover who you are in that dream and the traps you set up for yourself and design your plan around them. You have to your resiliency map at-hand. That's right! To maintain your dharma - your truth - you need to have a Plan B. Plan A is already posted on your vision board. It's in the list of goals you wrote out for the year a few weeks ago. Plan B is for the moments of stress, storms, distractions or your downright stubbornness that convinces you give in and give up. Plan B stands for Plan to B ON IT! Your plan B should be like the app on your phone ready at your fingertips.
Examine your dreams and goals and ask your self, are these the right aspirations for me? And if the answer is yes, take the next step to create that Plan B. What will you do when the path to your dream seems plagued with setbacks. Inspire others with your Plan B On It in the comments below.
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.
