Happy New Year Lash Lovers!
Have you ever wondered why resolutions get broken? Let’s look at goal setting vs. visioning. Goal setting can be influenced by the whims of culture. The ads alone we are exposed to can sweep us into a different direction. A direction of programmed habits.
Visioning is a bit deeper. Visioning requires that you first become present, tuning yourself inward to look at your deeper innate purpose so that you can truly be of service. This is the key to living a truly fulfilled life.
The tips below, consciously applied, will have you paradigm dreaming for 2019 and beyond.
Tip #1: Visualize The Good and The Bad
This is a simple technique developed by psychologist Jordan Peterson, the author of 12 Rules For Life. Over years of clinical practice, Peterson observed a lack of follow through in his patients. The technique to overcome this is by taking the following steps:
- In any area of your life- envision the path you currently are on.
- Then, imagine where you will be in 5-10 years if you remain on that path. Get into the gritty of how bad it could be if you continue being lazy and holding on to bad habits.
- Now, imagine your ideal life in 5-10 years, a NEW trajectory. See who that person is, notice the differences in this person compared to the negative trajectory identity you did just before.
This practice allows you to get clear, so your inner and outer worlds lineup. Just like using GPS coordinates, you MUST know where you are truly at, in order to program the destination.
Tip #2: Serve Others
There is a lot of talk about self-love. But then what? The answer is being a part of something bigger than yourself! The self-esteem that comes from knowing you are making a difference is a powerful force. What inspires you when it comes to how you can serve others in 2019?
