You have it within you every thing you need to make changes in your life, but sometimes finding what’s within takes a little practice.
The good news is: practicing is fun, and no special tools are required.
Begin identifying and encouraging what’s already inside of you by doing these 5 things:
- Give yourself permission to follow and act on your inclinations, those inner promptings that want to take you in a different direction from what you’re used to.
- No goal setting when you act on your inclinations. Going where those inner promptings lead is an intuitive process. It builds upon itself, according to an inner plan that gets revealed bit by bit.
- Be open to new possibilities. Ask yourself, ‘What if I did this instead of that’ Take action based on what feels right to you, even if it’s a bit frightening. Always keep yourself safe, but continue to push the envelope.
- Let your curiosity slip its leash. Have fun, explore, and experiment. Track down answers to questions that pop up. Nothing is too small to pursue.
- Understand ‘going with your gut’ is not an exact science. You’ll need to take risks, and accept you’ll make mistakes. It is the process by which you are learning to have more trust in yourself.
As James Joyce said, “I am tomorrow, or some future day, what I establish today. I am today what I established yesterday or some previous day.”
