My next online venture is almost ready for release and we are in the design phase, which means the spotlight is on me to figure stuff out. This new channel for income will really be exciting and I can’t wait to share more on my multiple streams of income dream.
Have you ever wondered why you get done that you do?
I recently discovered these motivations help me:
- Positive Thinking
- Lots of praise
- Repeating Affirmations
- Rewards (I’m still working on allowing myself time to enjoy these)
- Joining a Group
The biggest revelation I’ve recently discovered is the difference between “I Have To” and “I Choose To.”Â I realized I have a choice – in EVERYTHING. Whether it be doing the dishes, organizing my desk, or calling back a difficult client – we all have a choice. Does it mean there aren’t consequences? Of course not, but we always have the choice to accept them or not.
It hit me when I said it out loud and felt the difference in my body. Try it!
Repeat after me . . . “I have to do the dishes.”
Now take a breath and try “I choose to do the dishes.”
Do you see how your choice drives how you approach that particular task?
How do we take this freedom of choice into our dreams? Here’s how I’ve started applying it –
- “I choose to work out in the morning so I have energy and a strong start to my day,” for working out in the morning. I am not a morning person and this simple restating of this goal has made the alarm clock less of a villain.
- “I choose to keep my desk organized,” for keeping my piles in smaller piles. What a difference!
- “I choose to spend 1 hour a day on our new ventures,” for getting to a certain point with my online ventures.
What are you going to “choose” to do for your dream this week?
