Stay on Your Path


Have you gotten off track due to transient enthusiasm? Have you deterred from the new year’s/birthday resolutions you made (e.g. building a healthier lifestyle, pursuing the career of your dreams, traveling the world, focusing on who and what matters most)? Do you feel overwhelmed, frustrated, cemented or stagnant? If so, don’t worry. Here are some strategies I’ve learned to stay on path and live a limitless style of life.

Use Your Imagination

Daydream because if you can dream it, you can achieve it. I encourage this because I know that whatever I daydream about will end up on my hit list. Your thoughts become your feelings, your feelings become your actions, and your actions become your reality. If your daydreams can have no boundaries, why can’t your life?

Create a Vision Board

A vision board is a collage of images and texts representing your aspirations in life, and things that make you joyful and happy. Imagery and how we process it has a direct impact on our emotions and consequently our motions through life. So no matter how wild, unconventional, outlandish, or seemingly impossible your aspirations are, put the images on the board anyway.

I created a vision board for myself that is so epic, it effectively influences how I feel within the first few minutes after waking each day. It consciously, as well as subconsciously, keeps me motivated, focused on my goals, and reminds me that I’m limitless. If you believe undoubtedly that you can have or do anything you want, you’ll naturally move in that direction.

Meditate

Channel your attention and let your aspirations consume your thoughts. Keep the Triple R rule in mind: Reflect. Reset. Restore. Take time to be still and elevate into your higher consciousness. Evaluate where you’ve been and contemplate what has worked in the past and what changes you can afford to make in the future. Then refresh yourself by focusing on your breathing and resonating a more amplified frequency from your aura.

Map it Out

You can do this by journaling. When you map out what you want, the journey to your destination becomes easier. I’m not implying the journey will always be a smooth sail, but it’s a set direction you will naturally move in. If you find that you’ve had to take a detour, it’s OK. This gives you the opportunity to reroute, reassess, and eventually reach your destination.

Jump!

Just go for it, and believe you’ll land on your feet, and if your parachute doesn’t open, well, I’m sorry. Lol!

Seriously though, sometimes you have to be a risk taker. Decide now that you aren’t going to chase your dreams; you’re going to catch them! This life is entirely too short to wait to take action.

Eliminate Distractions

That includes people, too. If you have to let someone go, do it, and yes, it’s personal. Do it for your well-being, and clear your personal space of anything and anyone creating road-blocks.

Unplug, too. What I mean is that you should take a day here-and-there to avoid phone calls, text messages, e-mails, and social media. Those things can wait, but your peace of mind and personal development can not. Time is valuable and that’s something that cannot be restored. Don’t waste it on trivial nonsense.

Most importantly, get rid of negative thoughts. What cliché did I use earlier? Your thoughts become your feelings… Negative thoughts are a huge distraction so either discard them or use them to motivate you in a positive way.

Use Positive Reinforcements

The screen savers on your computer and phone should inspire you. When you set an alarm, make sure a powerful message accompanies it. Place post-it notes on your refrigerator. Use these simple tactics as subliminal reminders of how you’ll get to your destination. Bottom line is don’t ever let your goals escape you.

Get it Done

You know the feeling of relief you get when you accomplish tasks? Well this feeling should be enough motivation for you to stop procrastinating. Don’t mistreat or underestimate your energy. An object in motion wants to stay in motion, so get moving!
