It’s been a while since I’ve shared any self-discovery, life coaching tips and/ or holistic therapy techniques towards creating a better life. But, I’m back and can’t wait to update you on all the new resources I’ve created and the lessons I’ve learned through life experience and academic studies.
The greatest teacher in life is experience.
Honestly, this whole time, I have been consistently trying to get back in alignment with my life’s purpose. I’ve been through some MAJOR obstacles you would have never believed or could imagine – but passing the test has shaped me into a real spiritual bad-ass! In the process, I made a few decisions that kinda took me off my individual path. (I will share that story another day.) But, for right now, I want to share all the magical ways in which I was able to get back in alignment and create a better future for myself, my family and my immediate village.
Step 1: Take inventory of your life. Creating a vision for yourself and your life first requires you to ask yourself “what it is that gives my life meaning, purpose, and joy?”
- Look at your talents.
- Look at your abilities.
- Look at your village/ community/ family that surrounds you.
These things are a direct reflection of your life meaning and purpose. By analyzing the people, places and things in your life, you will be able to determine what brings you joy and what needs to be removed.
What are the things that make you smile the moment you envision yourself doing it? It is not difficult to determine what your special abilities, gifts or interest are; if you just center your self and intentionally pay attention to your transformation for self-discovery. Simply, look at your reflection and ask yourself: “What do I look forward to more than anything else in the world?”
For me, it was to LOVE – UNCONDITIONALLY. This means to help heal, build and help others create the lives that they deserve. I realized that my holistic healing practice was also a way to heal my own heart, and in return by providing services, guidance, consulting and resources to my clients it made me feel purposeful.
Step 2: Tap into your imagination. Now that you have decided to take action by creating a list of your talents, interests, and the activities that you love, it is time to form a vision around them.
You can do this by doing what every child on this beautiful earth has the power to do at will: Simply use your imagination to create your reality!
By using your imagination, you have the ability to visualize your future and have a source of inspiration stored in your subconscious as fuel to keep going towards your dreams.
Start dreaming of all of the ways, and envisioning all positive outcomes, in which you can spend your time doing everything you love.
I wake up every day with the only task of creating the life I love and deserve – which is simply making an impact on the lives of others and creating a successful blueprint that will build generational wealth for generations to come.
Do not worry about making sense at this stage, just dream, envision and imagine your future as beautiful as you would love it to be as if you were a child again. Allow the process of self-discovery to become natural to you!
Step 3: Set your goals. Once you have decided what you want to do to create a better life for yourself by developing a vision, the next step is to set goals that will serve as stepping stones toward the fulfillment of your vision.
A vision without a plan is just a dream.
You can start setting these goals by asking yourself questions like: What do I want to accomplish in my life? What kind of legacy do I want to leave behind? What would I do if I had all of the money in the world? Develop a mindset of abundance and prosperity.
Make sure your short term goals are SMART – Strategic, Measurable, Actionable, Realistic and Time-bound. Be clear, meaningful, well defined, and make sure your goals EXCITE you! You should feel motivated to complete your goals because it fuels a fire in your belly!
Step 4: Enjoy the journey and pay attention. As you begin a new day today, always keep in mind everything that you have written down and envisioned for your better future.
Old ways will eventually depart from you. You may even have to let things go that make you comfortable in order to experience a better life that awaits you. This will be TERRIFYING, but I reassure you, in the end, it will always be worth it. Although you probably do not have the means to immediately jump into your goals and plans above, you can still start working towards a new reality by thinking of the outcomes and reshaping mindset, while you are doing your best today.
Of course you will still have to go to work today in the job that you would rather not have, deal with some problems, and do the things you must do that you would rather not be doing, etc. but your new job now is to do them with vigor, with excitement, with “knowing” that your future will change according to your vision when you are ready. Trust the process!
