WHAT IS YOUR PLAN FOR 2021?
2020 is over. Thank God, but here’s my take on it. It wasn’t all bad and actually for us soul seekers and those always wanting to go deeper with ourselves, it was a blessing in disguise.
It was good. Real good for slowing us down. We had to slow our roll immensely. We scaled back on the superficial things. We paused the consumerism. Well some of us did. I’m not big on Amazon. No judgement. Just saying.
Amazon is the titan and you can surely get lost in the sea of selections on that site. Not only that, but the time that we give to these things. This is one we can never get back.
TIME IS PRECIOUS – USE IT WISELY
Time is our friend when we see it’s value and use it in a way that enhances us, our lives and those around us. When we wake up to each and every moment and see the weight of its power, time is truly our friend.
However when we spend a lot of time on things that don’t necessarily serve us in the end, worry, living in the past, regrets, sitting in extended bouts of sorrow, time is a great loss.
PUT IN THE WORK
Here’s the deal though – I have all that I could possibly need in life. I don’t need any more stuff. I’m after growth, soul growth, wisdom, books, scaling up my knowledge and my writing.
I want to do better with myself for myself and all of those around me.
We had our hopes dashed as the pandemic seared it’s way into our world. Cut off from socializing, zooming with friends and scaling back in so many ways.
I think it’s been good. We’ve been forced out of our comfort zones into more what I would call is loving territory.
And while some have had a rough go of it by being forced to stay home for extended periods of time others have undergone exceptional transformation. We’re talking more. We’re I’m hoping listening more and better. Yes this is a skill that requires practice.
THE POWER OF SLOWING DOWN
We are just slowing down. We have more time to reflect. We are getting back to some of those old hobbies or things we started and never finished. Oh how rewarding it is.
We have more time with loved ones. We are reading more. Thank you God! I’ve loved this part of it more than anything.
And now let me ask you – what are you going to do with all of this newfound wisdom, strength, resilience, knowledge?
2021 IS GOING TO BE SO GOOD
2021 is going to be far better not because 2020 sucked. Cause in my opinion it really didn’t. It was actually a pivotal year for momentous growth. Yes the pandemic sucked and people dying from a horrific virus sucks. And we’re not out of the woods, far from it. We are on the surge right now. Worst than ever, but we’ve learned, most of us have at least.
We are smarter, braver, wiser. We are more hopeful now cause we’ve felt the enormity of loss. We bring fervor and zest back to our goals and desires. We are more adamant and determined to get there. We’ve had a year of contemplative sitting. And no we have not been idle.
We’re 3 days out now. And for me I’m ready. Already ready and getting ready, real ready for a monumental year.
I’ve got big plans folks. You can expect my next book or two. Be on the look out for more video content from me. I’ll be doing a lot of features here from Oakland. I want to share stories that inspire me and I hope will inspire you too. It’s those stories about awesome people up to awesome things that always move me and touch me in some way that shoot straight to my heart. That’s what I’ll be doing.
And here are some thoughts on how to get going on your big plans for 2021.
AFFIRM IT OUT LOUD
Yep, that’s right. Claim your prize. Outloud. Say it. Affirm it. Feel it and sense the power and weight of your words. Sense and feel the weight of those feelings that bubble inside in shear excitement of this goal.
MAKE IT BOLD
Step outside of your comfort zone. Stretch yourself. Go for a bigger goal. Make it worthy of you. There is no goal too big or small that you cannot manifest.
Make sure you are looking for constant inspiration. Again start your day – 5-10 minutes with something inspirational, motivational. You can just listen while you’re getting ready or while you’re eating breakfast. The way you start your day is how your day will turn out.
DO THE SOUL WORK
Make sure to make time for you. Sit in silence. Get into nature. Realign yourself daily. Do those things that feed and nurture your soul. Make sure you take 5-10 minutes everyday. It is my sincere hope you will make a real practice out of it. Make it a habit. Come up with a routine that you stick to at least Monday through Friday. Routines make it more habit forming. So if you’re going to sit in silence for 5-10 minutes do it in the morning, same time every day. We are creatures of habit and when we begin making it routine and sticking to those time slots we are more biologically in tune and it’s easier to make a habit of it.
2021 GAME PLAN
Lay out the foundation, the roadmap. Map out precisely those baby steps that you plan to take to move yourself powerfully in the direction of realizing this ambition. I have my plans all laid out for the entire year. My projections for where I plan on being are broken down into bite size pieces month to month.
