IN EVERYTHING THAT YOU DO?
... how do you live out your core values, (fundamental beliefs which dictate your behavior)?
STEP 1: IDENTIFY YOUR CORE VALUES/INTENTIONS.
My answers: Enthusiasm, creativity/adventure, simplicity, & integrity (for me that's God-centered).
(Complete this sentence).
I want to live __________ly!
I want to live enthusiastically.
I want to live creatively.
I want to live adventurously.
I want to live simply.
I want to live with integrity.
2. IN EVERYTHING YOU DO:
move, eat, speak, pray/meditate,
APPLY THESE PRINCIPLES.
I WILL move enthusiastically.
I WILL move simply.
I WILL move creatively/adventurously.
I WILL move with integrity.
I WILL eat enthusiastically. (funny)
I WILL eat simply...
I WILL speak enthusiastically.
I WILL speak simply...
Stating "I WILL", instead of "I WANT TO," gives it more ownership, and becomes a part of you, rather than just something you hope for.
By making decisions in how you spend your time, based on this, you essentially "crowd out" the things that don't serve you. Quit wasting your time on things that really aren't YOU.
For example; I want to live simply. That means it's time to start purging and stop purchasing. The time I spend purging could be the time I usually spend hooked on social media, or making a trip to Target (aka- doing less of what doesn't serve me).
I also want to move adventurously. I started by riding my bike to work this morning, (win)! I can also start planning hikes, trips to the Whitewater Center, or playing outside with the family. This can crowd out some of the other things I do on the weekend, like watching cartoons with Brooklyn, & going out to eat (at least not as often).
Now, go start with #1. WRITE DOWN YOUR core values. It will, and should look different than mine. We are all beautifully unique. Let's live authentic lives, aligning the things we were designed to do, in a way which satisfies our souls!
Keep the Passion,
