PEARL #81: PLAN YOUR LIFE

 

DEAR DIARY, IT’S NOVEMBER 1ST 2014

“FAILING TO PREPARE IS PREPARING TO FAIL…

I used to hear this from Dr Dawkins Derrol, senior Pastor and Pediatrician, Birmingham AL. At the time I was just a student in nursing school, working as a Medical Assistant in his Pediatric practice. I wondered, what did that mean? It wasn’t a stretch of the imagination really, it was simple. Dr Dawkins simply meant, you ought to plan what you want to do, and plan how you will execute it.

For me today, I see that so relevant in everything I do. I have seen how things turn out when I plan, and the outcome when I don’t plan. Now, not everything in life can be written down to the last detail, some things are best spontaneous. However, when it comes to important stuff, like the trajectory of your life, a plan better be in place.

The first day of November, 2014, makes me realize, I have exactly 2 months till the end of this year. So, I am taking stock of what my life has been so far, is there something I can wrap up? Next, start planning for next year. When the new year starts, I should already have an idea what I want my life to look like. Deciding to plan in January, is preparing to be a day late. I want January to start with me already running.

Today I spent time in Barnes & Noble bookstore, looking around for inspiration. The first book I saw walking in is one I have been wanting to read, The Alchemist, wow. Then I looked for the book one of my Coaches and Mentors said I should get, The Ten Day MBA, my eyes fell on Joel Osteen’s book, but I couldn’t possibly get all these in one day. The adrenaline though started to fill my blood, I wanted to remain in the bookstore.

I got a couple of journals, my The Alchemist, pens and paper. Tonight, I will plan the rest of my year and the beginning of a new one.

What about you? What are you planning for next week, next month, next year? Need paper, pen? Then get it, start thinking, all the best to you and me, may our dreams come true.

How often do you think about why you exist? Too complicated a thought or too simplistic a view? Truth is, whether we think about it consciously or unconsciously, we are in one way or another striving to make sense of our existence. It is hard to experience total peace until we feel a sense of oneness and purpose, familiarity with our core. For everyone, that peace and sense of center is different, no two are the same.

Find your core, the inner essence from which our greatest strength comes, and then use it to fuel this great journey called life.

CREATE YOUR VISION BOARD

CREATE YOUR VISION BOARD

“To know where you are going you have to see it” Mah M

image

Last year I created a vision board, make that vision boards,

things I wanted in my life. So often we forget our dreams. Today

while driving you think of a great idea, it fills you with great optimism,

but two weeks later, you have forgotten the dream and the feeling it gave you.

It is said, that write your visions plain, though they tarry they will come to pass.

I believe in putting what you want out there in the universe. Map out your life, desires,

wants, needs. You can not have limits to your imagination, don’t judge whether you

have the tools to achieve your visions or not, just write what comes to your heart.

To make it more fun, cut out pictures, print photos of places you want to visit,

you want a Lexus, clip a picture of one to your Vision Board, ANYTHING goes.

For those who have no idea where to start, take a peek at my format & content

I divided mine into categories: For each category I expanded with bullet points.

MAJOR GOALS:-(More Spirituality, Self-Love, Marital Harmony, Kids)

MINOR GOALS: -( New Lease by Dec 31st, service cars, wrap up 2013 projects)

BUSINESS GOALS:-( blog & Begin Life Coaching, Direct Sales business venture)

PERSONAL GOALS:-(Lose 50lbs, vacation, more time with hubby and Kids)

WANTS, DESIRES, VANITIES:-( Invisalign braces, Eye Lasix surgery, more shoes)

HOME IMPROVEMENT PROJECT:-( Kids play room, sectional, wall accessories)

That is a sample of the stuff I have on my 2014 VISION BOARDS. Go to the dollar store

buy cardboard paper, drawing boards, Permanent Markers, crayons, glue. Spread out

your papers on the table and have FUN planning your life. When you are done, pray over it

and hang it where you can see it every day. In your bedroom, office, bathroom etc. As the

year goes by, check off the dreams that come true, feel free to add more dreams to your Board.

Let me know what your experience even doing this process is like. If you need help, call or email me
