Today’s article is very practical.
It needs you to imagine, feel & write.
And you will get excited as you nail it.
The main reason people set goals,
is to feel a certain way, right?
We’re going to take the shortcut here.
Instead of focusing on goals and to-do’s for the upcoming year,
we’ll zoom in on how you want to feel.
And what naturally follows, is what we call Inspired Action.
Take at least 15 minutes to get the absolute most out of this process.
Step 1: Brainstorm
This is the game of feeling awesome.
Get pen and paper ready (Old school works best!)
How would you like to feel in 2016?
Take 5 minutes to write down anything that comes to mind.
Don’t censor it, let yourself go wild.
Step 2: Pick your very best
Now go over your list again.
Pick the three words that stand out the most.
The ones that feel powerful.
These are your key ingredients.
Step 3: Set your Intention
Next you’ll create an intention.
Make a sentence with your three chosen words.
It should be present tense, positive and short.
Start with “I feel” or “I am”.
For example, my words were Trust, Adventure and Enthusiasm.
My intention: “I am full of trust, adventurous and enthusiastic”
Step 4: Your To-Feel-List
This next step should be really good.
You’re going to create a To-Feel-List for yourself.
It’s like an awesome-feeling-bucket list.
Take three more papers,
and write one of your words on each sheet.
Now write down everything that you can do
to make you feel that way.
(For example, I wrote down: Adventurous –
Go to festivals and parties, create a surprise journey for a friend,
visit a new country, have a threesome 😉
and so on…)
Take as long as you want for this step.
Write and write and write.
If you get stuck, ask yourself:
“What will make me feel “…” ?” and let the answer come.
Train your imagination, and have fun with it.
Step 5: Your Timeline
Great work. How do you feel now?
Getting excited about the possibilities?
Now finalize your To-Feel-List by making a timeline.
Write down what you want to do:
1. Next month
2. Next three months
3. Next year
This supposed to make you feel good.
At the end make sure that you put at least one
of these things on your calendar.
Plan it. Make it happen. Take that first step.
You now have a great plan for the coming year.
Just reading it will already be a strong reminder.
Let it inspire you to focus on how you most want to feel.
Bonus Step: Share the good stuff
I’d love to read your intention!
As always, share in the comments below.
I’ll start by sharing mine.
I wish you a fucking incredible 2016.
And I’ll do my best to help you make it happen.
