There’s one word to describe this past month: magic.
Have you ever had a time when you are really flowing in life and everything seems to be unfolding magically? And when everything is going so great, sometimes it’s good to ponder why it IS happening that way. So I’d like to share a few reasons I see that my life has taken on a magical turn this past month. I hope these tips help YOU create your own magic.
- Know what you want. We live our lives in default if we don’t have a direction to point our way. I have a friend who is in a job that is highly unsatisfying and beneath his skill level. When I asked him what he wanted to do for a career, he told me that he didn’t know what was out there. That is absolutely the wrong way to go about things. First decide what YOU want. Then find the way to make that happen.
- Know when you step out of your comfort zone, you will be uncomfortable! This may seem like stating the obvious, but it’s good to remember because you won’t give up when you feel that sense of stress or anxiety. The tension between where you are and where you want to be is exactly what you need to spring you into a new way of being.
- Accept support from friends. There will be times when you doubt yourself. Can I really be, have or do this? And your little self may tell you, “No! Who do you think you are, anyway?” When you experience these self-doubts, the best course of action is to talk to a supportive friend, colleague or mentor who can believe in you even when you don’t believe in yourself.
I know these tactics helped me immensely as I’ve been creating my magic. Now what’s your magic? It’s time for YOU to bring it out in your life.
