Let Go!… and watch your life change.
What are you holding onto?
Think about all the things that you have in your life. I am sure that there is a whole range of things you have and you have created. As well as…the almost new exercise equipment stored in your garage, the seven frypans in your cupboard or even the litany of digital photographs you will never actually look at.
Don’t forget all those files that you will never ever open on your computer!
We all hold on to too many things for way too long…
There is a part of us that loves accumulating… money, toys, relationships, careers, connections, and…these things become part of who we are.
We keep them, we give them oxygen and make sure they don’t die!
They become part of us. They are no longer a separate entity. They become unconsciously who we are. I say unconsciously because I don’t think we are determining any of this on a conscious level. Instead, we are building a prison that stops us from being free, especially as we get older.
We use this “stuff” to keep us safe and in our comfort zone.
We tend not to ask ourselves tough questions like, if I keep going the way I am going and doing what I do where will I end up?
Will your life become so full that you cannot recognise the person that you really are?
When you clear up your “stuff” you become more yourself and less of your stuff.
There is a particular tool I have developed counter this addiction to “stuff”.
to use with my clients called Bullseye!
And it formulates the Trajectory of your life from right now to your last days.
When we have a particular trajectory, and it is designed unconsciously, it can lead you down a path that can be unfulfilling, fruitless, and will not get us what we truly desire in life.
It’s a goal setting device that helps you consider.
Where are you now?
Where do you want to be?
What is the gap between my trajectory, and what changes can I make so I do in fact create a different destiny.
I help you delete declutter and then design your one and only life.
Let’s hit the target you want and not be distracted, disinterested…
The longer you stay on your current trajectory, the greater the degree of variance from your desired life.
Unhealthy Life vs Healthy Life
Let’s look at a common example. Let’s say you have the desire to lose weight and be more fit and healthy.
Firstly, you might currently be on a trajectory that provides you an unhealthy lifestyle. It might be that you are working longer hours and often eat takeaway. It might be that you prefer to watch TV as opposed to doing exercise. It might be that you simply haven’t made the conscious decision to start living a healthy life.
If you stay on that same trajectory, with time, the degree of variance from your desired life will only expand. You will put on MORE weight. You will have LESS energy. You will continue to live an unhealthy lifestyle.
Now, if you make the decision to set yourself up on a new trajectory and start living a healthy life, you will start to make some progress.
job/career, the greater your income becomes and the harder it may be to completely change your trajectory and progress down your desired path.
Can you imagine how different your life would look right now if you made the decision 3 years ago to change your trajectory and start progressing towards your desired life?
What if you made that decision 6 years ago? 10 years ago? 20 years ago? I see people on a particular trajectory that is currently leading them down a path that is unrewarding, unfulfilling and will not get them to what they truly desire in life.
And, as you can see, the longer they stay on their current trajectory, the greater the degree of variance from their desired life.
Let’s bring this back up and look at it with a common, real-life example.
You might currently be in a job that you dislike. Perhaps you knew early on in your career that you didn’t really enjoy the career path that you chose, and so you stuck at it.
Now, perhaps 10 years later you have worked your way up and have solid experience under your belt.
The only problem is, you still really dislike the career path that you have chosen and you’re still not satisfied, fulfilled or happy. You still have a deep desire, if not even deeper, to really pursue a career and life that is much more meaningful to you.
Now, the only problem is it’s a lot harder to move towards your desired life because the degree of variance is much greater than what it was years ago. When it comes to your career, this degree of variance can also represent income in many cases. The longer you are in your current job/career, the greater your income becomes and the harder it may be to completely change your trajectory and progress down your desired path.
Can you imagine how different your life would look right now if you made the decision 3 years ago to change your trajectory and start progressing towards your desired life? What if you made that decision 6 years ago? 10 years ago? 20 years ago?
Initially, the progress will be small, but if you continue down that new trajectory you will see the results that you desire. Achieving results takes time. It takes hard-work, commitment and discipline in staying on that same trajectory no matter how difficult it may seem.
What Can You Do Right Now?
The most important thing you can do RIGHT NOW is to determine what the right trajectory is for you. Examine what your current trajectory is and ask yourself whether continuing down this path will lead you to the life you desire the most?
