Does the future make you anxious? Do you feel stuck where you are? Are you frustrated with your current situation? Maybe it’s time to redesign your life. While this can sound like an overwhelming task, it doesn’t have to be. You just need to take it one decision at a time. Baby steps are the key to success here because over the course of a month, a year, two years, five years, those baby steps will add up into you literally walking around the world! If you want to get out of your current situation, if you want to redesign your life, take it one decision at a time. Here are three tangible ways you can start those baby steps today.
Envision the Woman You Want to Be
Envision the person that you want to be. Picture yourself. Who do you want to be? Once you can see that woman, and understand what she looks like, take some time to write it down. Grab a piece of paper and write down who you want to be, what you want to look like, how you want to feel, the experiences you want to have, the type of mom that you want to be to your children. Whatever it is, write it all down.
“What Would Future Self Do?”
Every time you catch yourself making a decision, whether big or small, ask yourself, “What would she do? What would the woman that I want to be, the version of me that I am working to become, what would she do?”
Now that you know what she would do, do it! Push yourself to take action. Make the decision you know the woman you are working to become would make. You don’t have to consciously do this with every decision you make, because we make thousands of choices every day. However, when you catch yourself making a decision, go ahead and ask yourself, “What would the person I want to become do?” When you have that answer, act on it, even when it’s tough. Even when it feels uncomfortable, take action.
Planning is one of the keys to success, but planning can be challenging when there are so many responsibilities playing tug-of-war with us. BUT it will only take 10 minutes! Take 10 minutes right now to write down what your future self looks like and acts like. Sometimes starting a journey is the hardest part, but if you take this 10-minute baby step now, you can start living a life you love today.
