You should have said that AT LEAST once this week. If not, then this assignment is definitely for you. Everything we’ve focused on so far this week comes down to this: You can’t START if you don’t know where to STOP! You have to know what you’re working towards to begin movement. Generalized ideas are…ehh…okay…but REAL momentum happens when you have dotted your I’s and crossed your T’s!
That is what you’ll do today.
This weekend’s writing assignment is to write down EVERYTHING…yes, EVERYTHING…that you feel you need, want, and desire in life. Write it all down. Then, one by one begin the process of elimination until you reach the essential elements of your needs, wants, and desires.
Wait? Why am I having you eliminate things?
It’s because there needs to be balance with your goals. You don’t want too many things weighing on you because it will add pressure. Some pressure is good, but think about it this way. Your body is your spirit’s vehicle. The more weight (goals, dreams, needs, wants, desires, etc.) you in your vehicle (i.e. the mind) the slower you move. If you put too much weight, it won’t move at all. You’ll lose your motivation to even go after those things because there’s too many to choose from. It makes getting started easier, and you can always add new goals as you successfully accomplish others.
Plus, some things can occur when you have other goals met already. For example, let’s say you want a 2011 Lexus RX 460h (I’m cheezing right now for good reason!). Let’s say you also want to maintain a base financial status of $500,000 a year. Well, if you have your finances in order, then you can easily obtain the Lexus. Get it?
The purpose of having clarity is to set the foundation of the things you want. If you want the car (…or house…or designer clothes), then focus on your finances. If you want the five carat wedding ring, then focus on finding a quality husband. If you want the fans, then focus on your craft. If you want to help others, then focus on what you can do for them. Develop the foundation for what you want, and the rest will follow.
The minute (meaning “size”, not “time”) desires can be obtained once you start reaching your goals. That’s what we’re truly focusing on at this point. Setting the foundation. You can have all the strong desires in the world, but if your foundation is weak then they can’t be supported.
For the rest of the weekend, take a moment to think about everything you need, want, and desire. Then narrow it down to the foundation of these things. Once you know what that foundation is, that is when your A HA! moment will arrive.
Next week, we will take these four focuses (knowing your purpose, having unconditional self love, clarity, your gifts, talents, and abilities, and writing’s role) and put them together to create a “map” of sorts that will take you from point A (where you are now) to point B (where you need, want, and desire to be). Also, I will post a month end video going over the weekly lessons, explaining more about The Motivational Rockstarr’s purpose, and what I am here to do for you.
It’s time to get clear once and for all! Let’s GYIT it! (Get Your Ish Together – a phrase used by my mentor Shanel Cooper-Sykes.)
