So you reverse engineered your seemingly impossible IDEALS right down to the practical steps you can take tomorrow to get you on your way. You are waking up excited, taking action, checking things off your to do list, and feeling pretty AMAZING that you are actually on your way to what you once thought was impossible. You are on top of the world, in fact you are CREATING the world that you are climbing to the top of, and let's be honest, it doesn't get much better than that! Life is GREAT, anything is POSSIBLE.
So is that the answer then? Is it really as simple as dreaming up your IDEALS and creating a plan? If creating your IDEAL career and life was really as simple as dreaming it and making a reverse timeline to get to it, you say, wouldn't everyone already be LIVING it? Wouldn't we all be waking up each day to lives that we LOVE? Surely, there has to be more to it than that...
I agree with you and I disagree with you.
The dream and the plan are all you need to get you to the point of taking actions that will get you to your IDEAL.
The problem is...
There are things that can get in the way of action.
What do I mean "get in the way"? I mean things that cause you to stop BELIEVING that an ideal life is possible. Things that cause you to lose the motivation to take the actions necessary to get there. Things that cause you to put your ideals back in the box under your bed where they had been collecting dust since the last thing got in the way.
The things that get in the way can be paralyzing, and they are powerful because the number and kind that affect you are only limited by your imagination.
Defining "things" is not something that I intend to do. Nor do I pretend to have all the answers to overcoming every "thing" that might get in the way for every person. What I can offer is to share with you the things I have overcome and the things that still sometimes getting in the way for me in getting to my IDEAL, as well as what I have found, from talking about these issues with others, are the most common things that get in the way.
In my next posts I will share with you some "things" that can get in the way, and some strategies for getting past them so that when they come up we can all continue onward, CREATING lives that we LOVE.
So...is it really as simple as a dream and a plan?
Maybe not quite. But add in a few strategies to get past the "things" that will try to get in your way of acting on your plan, and you will have set yourself on an unstoppable course to your IDEAL life.
Here's to being UNSTOPPABLE.
