Moving forward

A major contributing factor to moving forward in life is being able to let things go.

It could be physical possessions, people or memories and experiences.

An easy example is if you tried something and it didn’t work out. If you can’t let go of the thing that didn’t work you may find that it underlies future situations when you try something new.

Suddenly you’ve become someone that believes that nothing will work out for you, you become closed off to new things and remain stagnant.

That may seem extreme but that’s the reality of life. You won’t realise how much that one situation affected you until you’re randomly pondering life one Sunday afternoon.

I don’t think there’s one specific way to let go, what works for one may not work for another so it’s important to figure it out for yourself.

The grand plan

Sunday morning is the perfect time to make plans and daydream.

Take some time and think about an idea or a project that you’ve been working on and write down a grand plan for it. Make it meaningful, more than just I want to make lots of money.

Get right down to the core of your thing.

Ask yourself:

Why do I want to do this?

What am doing to work towards my grand plan?

What am I doing that is not helping me work towards my grand plan?

What can I remove from my life to give me more time and mental space to work towards my grand plan?

Do I believe my grand plan is possible and why or why not?

So now that you’ve given it some thought commit yourself to dedicating time every week to working towards your plans. It can be 20 minutes a day or maybe a couple of hours a few times a week. The point is to take action, start now.
