This post is going to be a little different. Today is the start of October, the start of the last quarter of the decade. So I’m going to share with you some ideas to embrace and push for those last 91 days to be the most positive and inspiring 91 days of this decade.
I hope you will take a few minutes to go through this practice and share what a-ha moments you have! Plus I created a quick Mindset To Do List to help!
Take time to reflect
I want to challenge you to take some time and reflect on the last decade. When you do this don’t just think about work - think about your relationships with family and friends, your health, your mindset, your life as a whole.
Where were you in 2010?
Where were you living, working, and spending your time?
How have you changed since then?
What hardships have you overcome in those 10 years?
What accomplishments have you achieved over the last 10 years?
What are you proud of?
Now let’s think forward...
Again, I want to remind you to think about all aspects of your life, not just work.
How do you want to finish out the year?
What do you want to accomplish over the next three months?
How do you want to feel on New Year’s Eve as we start a new decade?
What do you want to accomplish over the next year, five years, 10 years?
Write down your wildest dreams. Don’t let your fears hold you back. You can accomplish whatever you set your mind to.
And as we wrap this up, I want to share a little bit about our thoughts...
I believe that mindset is everything.
Choosing to think positively is exactly that. It is a choice. Thinking positively can be life changing. I don’t believe you’re born either an optimist or a pessimist. You are in control of your mind and your thoughts.
So go and enjoy the next three months and beyond.
Think positive, set goals, and chase your dreams.
