Create a Journal to capture all your ideas and new initiatives to change your situation.
Everything starts with a small action
Change your situation and leave your problems and frustrations behind, or at the very least minimise them. Everything becomes much easier when you are actually doing what you like doing in the framework of a vision you want to achieve.
The changes you want should not be intimidating and certainly not impossible if you go about it in a more orderly fashion.
Most people are not happy with their current situation, their business or their lifestyle. But despite this unhappiness, they continually venture down the same old road of unhappiness never willing to work out the action steps to bring about change.
Are your relationships, career choices, financial situation and other aspects of your life truly satisfying? Or do you feel there should be more for you to accomplish?
To bring about the changes you want and optimise everything about your life, it means that you will need to make many small changes across the scope everything you do. This will take time and effort over the next couple of years, which is why you need to keep a journal.
Start by quantifying and qualifying your dream
Find a quiet relaxing place where you can think and reflect on where you want to go in the future. Make sure that you can free of disruptions and distractions, just peace and quiet.
This place might be down by a river, in a forest, in a nice coffee shop or on a mountain top, it doesn’t matter as long as you have easy access and enjoy being there. Try and pick times when your brain is most productive and you might do better going to different locations.
Now ask yourself questions like the following:
- Where do I see myself in the future?
- Who and what do I want to become?
- What would be an ideal lifestyle for me?
- Who do I want to share with?
Don’t expect to arrive at the answers straight away, or even in the first few session you have. Write your thoughts into you journal under various headings so you can use previous thoughts to stimulate new ones. Make it a daily habit to quickly review your journal.
“The more intensely we feel about an idea or a goal, the more assuredly the idea, buried deep in our subconscious, will direct us along the path to its fulfilment”. Earl Nightingale
It is the thoughts that you have that start to flesh out the detail you will need in your planning and mapping of the journey you will take. After each session see if you can add photos, diagrams and other visuals to your journal as they will help to create a much clearer picture.
As you’re doing the dreaming big, ask yourself what small actions can you take to get you closer to your dream. The lists in your journal will become very important when you start to plan the actions steps. The lists in your journal will become the actions that that will take your dream to reality.
Change the conversations you have
Everyone has an inner passion buried somewhere in their subconscious or conscious mind. You will e surprised how focused conversations can heighten that passion and cause you to take the need actions to drive it forward. The power of a passion can lead you to accomplish extraordinary things.
Nothing will ever stay the same when you start changing the conversations you become involved in. Forget the small -talk and start asking questions.
Spend time observing conversations about things relating to issues you have identified in your journal. Some people keep dreaming of success, others wake up and work hard at it.

Life can be easier and much better when you accomplish small tasks on a regular basis to change your situation for the better.
However, you must be prepared to take a year or two of small actions to bring about the situation, business or lifestyle you are really looking to have.
