Choose thoughts that insure you take action

Updated: Feb 15, 2021

Hey lovelies,

I hope you are already creating an extraordinary holiday season. Step 1 - Mapping it all out Last week I showed you the power of preplanning all your to do's to eliminate overwhelm and exhaustion. (below is the workbook if you haven't downloaded it yet and a video overview) This does include making a to do list, but then .... Assigning each task an actual time block and date. And, the key.... doing what you say you are going to do. The way you do this is by choosing your thoughts about your calendar, on purpose. Step 2 - Thought work All your results are based on your thoughts. If you follow your calendar it is because of thoughts you are thinking that are creating feelings that encourage you to follow through. Example: Thought: I am game to do everything I preplanned creates.... A feeling of commitment which encourages you to follow the calendar. If your thought is: This is all optional. The feeling created may be dismissive which will not lead to follow through. Get it? So, give yourself a few minutes to think what thoughts could create a feeling of calm, extraordinary, ease, joy, and fun this holiday season? Feel free to borrow mine if you are having trouble coming up with your own:

  • I am a woman who keeps her commitments.

  • If I choose not to follow the plan it will be for a reason that creates a different extraordinary, not because I am avoiding what I said I would do.

  • Following this schedule is a gift to me.

  • I will wake each morning and check in with how I can make the day joyful. Following my plan will surely be part of creating joy.

  • Everything I have on my calendar I have chosen to do.

  • There is always enough time to do what I most value doing.

And, no beating yourself up if you don't do all you said you were going to do. Tomorrow is a new day. You don't learn to walk by only walking... you fall a lot too. Part of growing. Part of learning a new skill. I look at preplanning as creating freedom not creating restriction. I always have more time than I realize when I assign every task its own home on my calendar. Here's to yet another extraordinary week! Let me know how it goes!
