We each have our own version of what our lives could look like. While we might not always agree with how another might approach this, being true to ourself is critical to our own success. As we prepare for a New Year, this is the time to access and plan our best life.
What is your best life? Who’s to say? You do! That is why it’s important for you to get clear on what is important to you! It's not someone else's version, it’s your own. What kind of courage do you need to move your dream into reality? For many of us, it would take a lot! Maybe it’s not easy, but the great feeling we gain by living true to ourselves, and living a healthy life, could be immense!
How do you actually make these changes? Try this exercise. Consider your life is represented by a circle, and the circle is broken down into pieces. Each piece of the circle, or pie, represents an aspect of our life. What are the pieces of your pie? Family, finances, relationships, work, play, spirituality all could be such pieces.
How ‘full’ is each piece? If you were to think about the very tip of the pie piece as ‘empty’, or fully unsatisfied, and the wide arch of the crust being ‘full’, or fully satisfied, where would your current level of fulfillment be? This is a simple but effective way to view our lives. Your potential in each area is attaining a ‘full’. Balanced levels of fullness also might be your ultimate goal.
What you actually do fill each piece is unique to you, and this is what you can plan for the coming year! What it’s going to take to have your pie filled? Moving toward a full pie may be your goal to living a rewarding life! Enjoy your pie!
