Take a moment to check in with yourself. How is everything really going? Is it time for a new story? If things aren’t going the way you want them to be going, take a look at the story that you have created. Have you created a story that makes things hard, challenging, and frustrating?
For instance, lots of people create this kind of story around money, around their ideal job, raising kids, getting a house, etc. But you can choose to tell a different story.
I realized that I had created a story around specific bills- not all my bills in general, but there were two where I felt resentment and guess what- it became extremely hard for me to pay those bills. They just seemed to never get paid down in any significant way, I realized I was creating a story around them that was different than the story I held for my other bills. I made a conscious choice to create a new story.
My new story was that these two bills were teeny-tiny in the big picture. I focused on how easy it is to pay them. My energy shifted. As I focused on my beautiful big picture, less negative emotion was attached to these two bills. I freed up my time and attention and became less attached. It was a breath of fresh air.
If things aren’t working, decide today that you will choose differently. Choose a new powerful story. Choose a story that lifts you up, excites you, and makes you inspired.
Create a new story by deciding how you want the story to be- not how you are currently seeing the story.
Steps to a new story:
- Recognize that you have created a story about where you are now.
- Decide how you would like to be and feel.
- Create a new, better feeling story.
- Notice your shift in energy
- Take one or two inspired action steps based on your new, better feeling story
