Have you ever stopped and asked yourself..."How am I doing at this thing called LIFE"? I mean really, really, sat down and asked yourself that question.
I remember asking myself that same question about five years ago. And I must say, I got pretty upset about the answers that I came up with. I realized that I was on auto-pilot about a lot of things in my life.
It was like I was living life based on a check-list instead of enjoying the experience of it. For instance, I graduated from college, CHECK...got a job in my field, CHECK....bought a house, CHECK...started my own business, CHECK...was in a good relationship, CHECK erase CHECK erase....had kids....CRICKETS. You get my point though.
But even with the checks that I was able to mark on my list, I didn't feel like I was truly living my BEST LIFE. I was just going through the motions....and in some cases, letting life happen to me.
I was later introduced to Florence Shinn's writings and it was literally GAME CHANGING for me. It showed me that winning at LIFE was really built around my mindset and the words that I was speaking. I had to ask myself if I was speaking doom or success, life or death, positively or negatively about my life's experiences.
Granted, that wasn't the first time that I've heard about the importance of your mindset and the words that you speak....it was just a lot more clear that time around. And I'm a firm believer that timing is everything.
So in a nutshell, I wasn't way off track with the process, I just needed to do a little tweaking.
You may be in that same space where you are questioning your life's experiences and need a little pick me up. Maybe one of these books will be able to help you, like they were able to help me. Keep going boo...you got this!!!
