The right time isn’t there, trust me. The now time is here and shouldn’t be passed up. I don’t know how many times I and others have used the excuse that “now isn’t the right time.” “Maybe when ” is the follow up to that sentence. Quit smiling, because I just called out your bluff and no, I’m not a mind reader, I’m just a participant in the excuses of life. I challenge you to take this journey with me and let’s change our lives right here and right now. I will send out beginning questions to have you write down answers so you can reflect on what you’re stuck point/excuses are that are holding you back. Please join in and feel free to share any or all.

This is one of my favorites from Amazon, go check it out. <iframe style=”width:120px;height:240px;” marginwidth=”0″ marginheight=”0″ scrolling=”no” frameborder=”0″ src=”//ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?ServiceVersion=20070822&OneJS=1&Operation=GetAdHtml&MarketPlace=US&source=ac&ref=qf_sp_asin_til&ad_type=product_link&tracking_id=lifecoachi054-20&marketplace=amazon®ion=US&placement=B00M7QRAQM&asins=B00M7QRAQM&linkId=e68dfdf5de32219ee3cfec1fd345db6e&show_border=false&link_opens_in_new_window=false&price_color=333333&title_color=0066C0&bg_color=FFFFFF”>
It’s best to personally pick out one that means something to you. Remember this is your life, so make it a special one you can come back to and add or just reflect over time. Get ready to become a writer of your own life. Writing is a wonderful way to slow down your brain and it teaches you to process slower as your brain translates to your hand, which writes it out on paper. If you feel more comfortable typing out your journal on your computer, that will speed things up but it’s important to do what works best for your brain process. When I was in college, as an adult, the younger kids made fun of me because when I studied I would read the text, highlight the book, listen to the teacher’s lectures and then to prep for the test I would type out all the notes and highlighted areas. Yes, this did take a lot more time however, I wanted to really understand what I was meant to learn and as an older learner, I wanted my money’s worth so had to get an “A”, which I did. Note: I put my report card on the refrigerator to show my teenage boys I got all A’s. One of my adorable sons wrote on the report card, “OVER ACHIEVER!” Gotta love them.
Please take the time to also write down each question and then say it out loud. It’s a part of the processing to your thoughts become your words which become your actions. This will come in handy when I teach you to do a vision board.
