Growth and Expansion

Maybe sometimes you have to go backward to move forward?

I’m growing and expanding my saying ‘no’ characteristic and I wonder if moving backward is moving forward. I wonder if I’m more aware of my will power and discipline as I grow than I was before. Am I feeling that I’m moving backward away from my goal, instead of feeling that I’m moving forward to my goal, where I want to be, because I’ve grown?

Gratitude and appreciation

There is a balance to enjoy the journey in the want and the desire to achieve your vision, your goals, and your growth. Your want and desire are continually growing and expanding with you.

In the gratitude, in appreciating what is, for what you’ve accomplished you grow and expand. Having gratitude and appreciation for your life experiences – who you’re being, for what you’re doing, for how you’re living, and why you’re becoming who you want to be doing what you want to do and living how you want to live – guide you to thinking about your vision and goals.

When you are thinking about your vision and goals, you are open to growth and expansion. Earl Nightingale said in the ‘The Strangest Secret’, “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.” As we become who we want to be, doing what we want to do and living how we want to live – an expanded desire or a new desire is born.

Growth

As you reach goals and visions, as you experience your life journey, you grow and as you grow your perception changes. A feeling of moving backward to move forward is a part of growth and expansion, its feeling the natural ebb and flow of growth. You realize your want and desire, you change and grow to achieve your want and desire, and you continue to grow expanding your wants and desires into a bigger want and a new bigger desire from your new perspective.

Expansion

“We are always becoming, we are always creating! Today I am more than I was yesterday, and tomorrow I am more than I am today. I have clear values and definite goals for who I want to BE, what I want to DO and how I want to LIVE.”
~Erin Marie Barry

What have you expanded to? How have you grown? You are not the same person you were last year, last month or last week. Celebrate who you are NOW and feel gratitude and appreciation!

Who do you want to BE? What do you want to DO? How do you want to LIVE? Grow and expand! Live your life fully!

Live Your Truth!

Goals

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 what’s your vision for the life you want to live. Do you have goals? Are you goals written down? Do you have the goal, the time you want to achieve your goal, the plan to achieve your goal and why you want to achieve your goal?

Goals bring meaning to your life. Goals are the journeys and experiences that fill your life with what is most important to you. Goals are growth of becoming who you want to be, doing what you want to do, and living how you want to live. Goals are the path to living your live with purpose and passion.

When you know your values and what they mean to you creating significant and achievable goals is easier, your values are your guidance system. Earl Nightingale said in The Strangest Secret, “People with goals succeed because they know where they are going.”

How do you want to change and grow? Do you have goals for all areas of your life? Asking yourself the following questions helps you to set significant goals for all areas of your life.

  • Who do I want to be?
  • What do I want to do?
  • What do I want to achieve?
  • What do I want to give?
  • What does success mean to me?
  • What would make my life a success?
  • How do I want to live my life?
  • What are my dreams?
  • Does this goal align with my values?
  • Does this goal, and thinking about the achievement of this goal, give me positive feelings?

It is important to set specific goals for all areas of your life; intellectual and personal growth, relationships and recreation, financial, business/career, family, God/spiritual, health and well being, and giving back. Setting goals for all areas of your life helps give balance to your happy and harmonious life.

To achieve your vision, you take action on goals in all areas of your life. Every journey and goal is different; you do not know what your challenges will be, or when you will be challenged. Goals are like ripples in water; one expanding into another affecting and joining one another. The effort and energy required to take action on your vision and goals can and will change.

We are always becoming, we are always creating! Today I am more than I was yesterday, and tomorrow I am more than I am today.

Creating goals is what moves you forward in life. You know where you currently are, and where it is you want to be. As you become who you want to BE, are doing what you want to DO, and living how you want to LIVE; your goals and awareness will grow and expand. You live your life with purpose and passion. Life is growth; and goals give you the journeys and experiences for your growth and living a full happy successful life achieving your vision and dreams.

LIVE YOUR TRUTH!
