Spiraling Up

Growth and transformation are ever spiraling upwards. The goals that we create for ourselves, the visions we build and imagine for ourselves guide us to take action in becoming who we want to become, in doing what we want to do and in experiencing what we want to experience.

Our vision that we continue to make clear from our dreams and desires determines the goals that we have in our lives. Our goals and visions for our present moment, for the life that we want to live. As we do and be what our goals determine us to do and be we create the life that we want to live. As we live the life that we have imagined, our vision expands and grows. An expanding vision creates new and expanded goals. As we do and be what our new and expanded goals guide us to do and be, we create the new life that we want to live. As we live the new life that we have imagined, our vision expands and grows again, we create more new and expanding goals. We grow continually, ever spiraling upwards.

Vision and Create Your Life

“The only person who succeeds is the person who is progressively realizing a worthy idea.” ~Earl Nightingale

Your worthy ideal is what you define it to be, the vision you have of the person you want to be, what you want to do, what you want to experience, how you want to feel. Your worthy ideal is your visions for living the life of your dreams and desires.

Your worthy ideal is all about you. What is most important to you, what fulfills you, what do you enjoy? Who do you want to be, what do you want to do, what do you want to experience?

Do you have the visions of living your dreams and desires in your mind? Do you imagine how you want to live? Imagination begins the creating of the life that you want to live.

“Thoughts become things. If you see it in your mind, you will hold it in your hand.” ~Bob Proctor

Life is a journey! It is not the destination that brings growth, peace and happiness, it is your journey and experiences, your values and goals guiding and directing you to achieve your vision, that bring excitement and energy, your happiness and success into your life.

Living your truth is being who you want to be, doing what you want to do and living how you want to live by knowing yourself deeply. Knowing your vision and what you want to experience. Creating a life that is happy and harmonious, fulfilling and successful, and you enjoying your life journey.

Are you living your truth? Are you imagining who you want to be? Are you visualizing what you want to do? Are you experiencing what you want to experience? Are you living and creating the life you want to live? Live your truth!

Present Moment Awareness

I feel like I am in present moment awareness and growing, learning and expanding. Living in present moment awareness enjoying my journey and experiences.

I don’t feel like I’m in present moment awareness choosing the positive choice, what makes me feel good and what will move me closer to achieve my goals and visions.

How different are the two?

  • Being in present moment awareness and enjoying the journey and moments
  • Being in present moment awareness with awareness for my goals and visions being, doing, and experiencing life to achieve my dreams and desires

Am I choosing in the moment, choosing positive, choosing happy, choosing to reach my goals and visions? I am saying ‘no’ to some things to say ‘yes’ to my goals and visions, dreams and desires. I am aware of that and happy and grateful for that.

What am I expecting to feel? I need to choose to celebrate too! Maybe I’m comparing and judging too much? That feels like a correct idea. Awareness.

  • Awareness of the moment and enjoying the journey and experience
  • Awareness for positive thinking of goals and visions, dreams and desires

I think both present moment awareness’ are needed. Enjoy the journey and when I become aware of negative feelings – choose to think positively and take action on my goals and visions, dreams and desires.

Are you living in present moment awareness? Are you enjoying your life journey and moments? Are you choosing to move in the direction of your goals and visions, your dreams and desires?

Personal Growth

I am very enthusiastic and energetic about my personal growth. It is something that I am passionate about and is one of my core values.

I am eager to do activities, workshops and learn. I am curious about myself, my wellbeing and growth and expansion.

I love reading and studying and always have more than one book that I am currently reading about personal growth. I listen to positive, motivational and inspirational audios.

books

I have routines in the morning and evening for me to focus on being positive, keeping my goals dreams and desires in front of me in the NOW moments. I am aware of my feelings and choose positive with gratitude, imagining and visualizing.

I want to learn, grow and expand every day!

6 years ago I was a different person. I didn’t have routines, I wasn’t reading personal growth books or listening to positive audios. I didn’t know my core values and what they mean to me. I didn’t know much of what I truly wanted. I didn’t have goals and visions for my dreams and desires, I barely had dreams and desires.

I read ‘The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People’ by Stephen Covey and it changed my life! I clarified and defined my core values, I created and defined goals for all areas of my life.

I’ve reached a lot of those goals. My goals, dreams and desires have changed, grown and expanded.

I enjoy my life journey of growth and expansion. I enjoy being who I want to be, doing what I want to do and experiencing what I want to experience. I enjoy living my truth!

What are you doing to grow and expand? What are your dreams and desires?

Live Your Truth!

 

What is on your mind?

Who do you want to be? What do you want to do? What do you want to experience? How do you want to live?

 

vision board 2Do you see it in your mind? Do you imagine living the life of your dreams? Can you visualize it?

“Thoughts become things. If you see it in your mind, you will hold it in your hand.” ~Bob Proctor

Knowing what you want and keeping the image of your vision in your mind brings your vision closer to you every day.

Mom’s Rules

It seems like there are rules for everything. How to eat, how to workout, how to save money, how to spend money, how to work, how to sleep, how to live. Don’t do this, do that, do it this way.

Live Your Truth!

Balance

I want to ‘enjoy the journey’! I want to enjoy the day-to-day, the daily living – the relationships I have and the activities I’m involved in and not become too focused on my visions and goals. And, I want to enjoy my visions and goals – the creating and becoming who I want to be doing what I want to do and living how I want to live. I’ve realized that balance has quite a bit to do with living life fully and to ‘enjoy the journey’! There is a balance to daily living and creating visions.

It is easy to get caught up in living day-to-day and your visions and goals becoming a memory and not a focus. It is easy to get caught up in your visions and goals and not enjoy and appreciate what you presently have in your life.

Living day-to-day you can be carried away by the seemingly endless to-do list. You know the list that is ever expanding and never shrinking. The list that at times seems to scream at you, ‘YOU have this activity! AND this responsibility, AND don’t forget that!’ A list and schedule that doesn’t seem to include free time for you to relax or do what YOU want to do.

Living with your eyes only on your vision you can develop blinders that don’t allow you to experience the life that is going on around you. You become so focused on your vision and goals you don’t take time for important relationships in your life, you don’t take time for rest relaxation and rejuvenation.

Balance is a delicate thought and idea. When day-to-day activities, daily living responsibilities grab hold and seem to overcome any thoughts of vision and goals – thoughts can become negative, of lack and wanting, of not being aware of growth, and you can become overwhelmed feeling.

That is when you need to clarify and define your visions goals and priorities.

When focus on one vision or one area of life is front and center day after day or week after week, you become enveloped by that vision and awareness of your other visions and goals fade. The lack of thought and attention on the ‘slipped from memory’ visions or areas of life leads to thoughts that can become negative, of lack and wanting for the forgotten areas of life when the visions and goals do enter mind.

That is when you need to clarify and define your visions goals and priorities.

Balance in daily living and your visions and goals is balancing the different areas of your life, prioritizing what is important to you, not focusing too much on one vision, not forgetting the visions in other areas of life. Balance in daily living isn’t accomplished in one day, rather a week or another sequence of days. Today a priority of family relationships, tomorrow a priority for my vision of working from home and time freedom, the day after a priority of personal growth or rejuvenation.

It is easy to be pulled off balance, or feeling as if you are going in circles. Life is an ever expanding spiral of growth. Growth is being aware of where you are, where you want to be, and defining and clarifying what you want in all areas of your life. As you grow in awareness your visions, goals and priorities change. You can feel discord as the balance shifts; your balance must change and grow too.

Have you been overwhelmed with day-to-day activities and responsibilities? Or have you become enveloped by one vision? If you are feeling off balance, or that you are going around in circles, clarify and define your visions goals and priorities.

Live Your Truth!

Burning Desire

I’ve been thinking about my purpose and passion and my ‘burning desire’. Right now I feel I need to ‘fan the flames’, my desire is not a ‘burning desire’ right now. I feel that I’m holding myself back somewhere somehow, I’m scared of the changes and the transformation I will experience to attain my goals and visions. I’m at a point of living on the edge – which is where I want to be, and that I need to take the risk – which is what I want to do! I am at the point of pushing my comfort zone – and I need to push through, rather than stop or slow down – which is what I feel like I’ve done.

What causes me, or you, to stop or slow down in reaching for your visions and taking action on your goals?

  • Desire is not high, it’s not a burning desire right now
  • Not keeping your goals in front of you
  • Not having strong and focused visions and visualization
  • A shift in priorities

You can take action to create a ‘burning desire’ and live your life filled with purpose and passion. You can take action to live the life you want and move forward expanding and growing, being who you want to be and doing what you want to do.

  • Create good habits to empower your being and doing – affirmations, mediation to quiet your mind, yoga, working out, visualizing visions, gratitude, journaling, smiling
  • Modify your goals and actions to be aligned with your visions for your transformation and growth
  • Live by your truth and values, live by how you want to feel and allow yourself to enjoy the journey!
  • Time activity management – keep your goals before you and plan your day the evening before prioritizing your goals and actions allowing you to be present
  • Say ‘no’ to keep your goals and actions aligned with your priorities and visions
  • Grow – learn new things, expand your knowledge and study what you’re passionate about
  • Positive thinking – think about what you really want, replace thoughts of lack with positive thoughts of your visions and goals
  • Well being – be physically active and allow for rest and rejuvenation
  • Spend time with positive people that enhance and empower your life!
  • Act as if it were impossible to fail!

I have changes and growth I can take to create and increase my ‘burning desire’. I’m learning to say ‘no’ to what doesn’t align with my truth and visions, and say ‘yes’ to my visions and action goals. I am creating the habit of daily meditation to quiet my mind and strengthen my focus.

Is your desire a ‘burning desire’? Are your goals and daily activities aligned with your visions? Are you learning something new right now? Are you getting enough sleep, fresh air and daily movement? What new habit can you create to increase your ‘burning desire’?

Create your burning desire! Live with purpose and passion! Enjoy the journey!

Live your truth!

Vision

Living your truth is knowing who you are – and living in alignment with who you are. It is knowing what your values are, what your goals are and whats your vision for the life you want to live. Do you have a clear vision, an image in your mind, of who you want to be, what you want to do and how you want to live?

Vision is the image of the person you want to BE, what you want to DO and how you want to LIVE. Jesse Stoner Semel said this about vision, “A vision is a clearly-articulated, results-oriented picture of the future you intend to create. It is a dream with direction.”

Create your vision and build the image in your mind. Your goals are made from your values, your guidance system, to achieve your vision. Once you have your goals in clearly defined statements; read your goals daily, think about them and keep them in front of you. When you focus on your goals, you will take action, and you will achieve what you are thinking about!

Goals are the seeds that you plant in your mind, your mind is like soil. Define your goals and feel a burning desire to achieve your vision and goals. Keep your mind positive as you think about your goals and imagine yourself having achieved your vision.

Taking action to achieve your goals is like watering the seed, encouraging your goal to become and to be by accomplishing goal achieving tasks every day. Henry David Thoreau said, “If a person advances, confidently in the direction of their dreams, and endeavors to live the life they have imagined, they will meet with success unexpected in common hours.”

Visualizing and imagining your goals is like sunlight for the seed. Let your imagination go wild and free, dream and dream BIG. Imagination allows you to be open to new ideas, new creativity and more expansion. Imagination is all the infinite possibilities in reality. Napoleon Hill wrote in his book Think and Grow Rich, “…imagination is the most marvelous, miraculous, inconceivably powerful force the world has ever known.”

As your goals grow becoming your vision, negative thoughts, like weeds will begin to pop up around your goals. When you become aware of negative feelings or negative thoughts, they are an indication to you that you desire for things to be different, to be changed. When you become aware of this desire that is causing negative doubt and worry, focus on your goals. Think about your goals and how you will feel when you achieve your goals and vision. Earl Nightingale says, “It stands to reason that a person who is thinking about a concrete and worthwhile goal is going to reach it, because that’s what he’s thinking about. And we become what we think about.”

Feeling the emotions of gratitude is like loving the seed that is planted. Feel the gratitude you will feel having achieved your goals NOW. Why do you want to achieve your goals, your vision? Become emotionally involved, see yourself as having already achieved your goals and vision; this creates the attraction, manifestation, desire, motivation and action within you to achieve your goals and vision.

Life is a journey! It is not the destination that brings growth, peace and happiness – it is your journey and experiences, your values and goals guiding and directing you to achieve your vision, that bring excitement and energy, your happiness and success into your life.

Are you living your truth? Are your choices and decisions made to live by your values, to achieve your goals and vision? Are you being who you want to be? Are you doing what you want to do? Are you living how you want to live?

LIVE YOUR TRUTH!
