Can you believe it is already June? As we enter into a new season it comes with some mixed emotions depending on how your year is going. There is six months left in 2016 and it honestly feels like it just started.
There are many changes that come with a new season that are unknown. There are also many changes that we can make on our own with some determination and commitment.
With six months left in the year I really thought about the year and how it was going. It is steady, to be honest. It is not nearly as serendipitous and fast pace as last year, but it is a year of steady growth and conscious determination. There have been a few challenges but I’ve committed to finding the lesson in each one and to keep going.
There is plenty of time to get back on track and have YOUR best year yet. It starts with mindset, specific intention, understanding the why, gratitude, and most importantly prayer and meditation.
Here are the specifics.
Mindset – If you have a goal, dream, or idea do everything in your power to make it happen. Many times our ego gives us a million reasons why we can’t do something. You have it in you to get it done. If you take as little as 30 minutes a day towards what you want to do, you can see how far you’ve come within a month.
Mindset includes changing the conversation that you have with yourself. The following affirmations will help.
I am capable.
I can accomplish anything I put my mind to.
I will make my dreams come true.
God has appointed me for this, and I can do anything with His guidance.
Intention – Create your specific intentions, write it down, and look at it every day. Once you write down your intention, write down the steps that you will take to make it happen. From there put those steps in your calendar and commit to them.
Understanding the why – Ask yourself “why” consistently and be honest with your answer.
Gratitude– Always give thanks.
Prayer and meditation – Praying is asking and meditation is the guidance and answer. Both of these practices keep you grounded, mindful , and aligned with your true purpose.
There are six months left of 2016 what are two goals that you will commit to?
