Have you ever planned for something and you stubbornly wanted that to be it? Plans are a starting point, just as a degree is only the beginning of life-long learning. Plans often lead to stronger ideas and more elaborated processes. It often is that a plan that we hatch and we think of as a masterpiece unleashes our potential. Our potential is unlimited and change is intrinsic to life. So plan today, review tomorrow and then implement it.

We spend our formative years adopting other people’s vision of the world, as well as learning from the experiences that we are exposed to. Unavoidable limitations consist of our geography, associations, access to education, the language we speak and more.

If we take this approach to any practices that improve our wellbeing – meditation, mindfulness, affirmations etc we can’t be further away from the truth. Often times, as soon as we stop exercising or meditating for instance, our body and mind is changing its composition. The lack of commitment and self-esteem take center stage and we allow all the hard work to go to waste. We are embarked on an ongoing journey towards growth and not seeking to meet our full potential is choosing to just partially live. Buckle up, take responsibility and commit to building purpose.

This is quite an old principle that we don’t always acknowledge that it applies to every area of life. If we focus on being late and the consequences it attracts, or missing out on a deadline – it will most likely happen because our brain perceives that as the priority. A great exercise is shifting your perception from what you fear to what you want. Not only will it give you peace of mind in the present moment, but it will turn the future you want into a greater probability.
