I Will because I can I'll Do cause I believe The strength I need to makerepparttar change Is deep inside of me I'll Walk where I have crawled I'll Run til I can fly My wings will fill with winds of change The moment I decide

The power of decision Isrepparttar 124051 greatest force on earth Openingrepparttar 124052 hidden doors To allrepparttar 124053 universe The second you discover The strength that stirs in you You'll feel your dream within your grasp Because you said - I'll Do

I Will because I can I'll Do cause I believe The strength I need to makerepparttar 124054 change Is deep inside of me I'll Walk where I have crawled I'll Run til I can fly My wings will fill with winds of change The moment I decide

The promise of tomorrow Isrepparttar 124055 vow I make today New horizons will appear The moment that I say...

Please bear in mind that this is a song lyric and as such does not allow forrepparttar 124057 extended expression of say, an article, however, what is written here is in direct contrast to thinking, or worse, saying and acting out,repparttar 124058 "If" word. Or, "I'll try" instead of "I'll do".

Not one to heartily subscribe to much ofrepparttar 124059 mental exercise stuff found in books and onrepparttar 124060 lecture circuit (after all, we are only human and hate exercise of any description), my advice is very simple. Whenever you catch yourself thinking, or sayingrepparttar 124061 "IF" word - STOP IT! Erase that mental blackboard image and rewrite it with an affirmative. Say, for example, "I WILL do thisrepparttar 124062 next time I am inrepparttar 124063 same position". Make your thinking about that particular situation a valuable and positive lesson leaned.

As a matter of fact,repparttar 124064 biggest favor you can ever do for yourself is to change every negative thought into a proactive one. After all, we are what we think!

Hey, and every time that you hearrepparttar 124065 real "F" word, think ofrepparttar 124066 "IF" word andrepparttar 124067 fact that it's been removed from that garage door.

Creating A Vision That Is Uniquely You

Written by Maria Marsala


Continued from page 1

Make it an adventure and do it! If one of my clients is having a difficult time getting started on their plan, I ask what they've done that hasn't worked and then we discuss other options. Try these options for ideas: ~~Be creative and have fun. Designrepparttar most creative vision you've ever dreamed about! Design your first dreamboard. www.coachmaria.com/articles/dreamboards.html ~~Start a planning box. For "x" months, everytime you get an idea of what might be in your plan, putrepparttar 124050 thought on a piece of paper and put it in your box. Pick a date you'll put your ideas into a plan.

Take a good look at your current beliefs aboutrepparttar 124051 life you're creating. Pick up a copy ofrepparttar 124052 Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom. It's a small book jam-packed with wonderful information on beliefs. Make sure what you believe is really "you". Don't get stuck in someone else's vision.

Purchaserepparttar 124053 book I use with my business clients The One Page Business Plan. It's a fun, tips-full, fill inrepparttar 124054 blanks, clouds, answer-the-questions type workbook. Use it to create your business or personal plan. Go somewher serene for a weekend and completerepparttar 124055 5 parts of your plan. Or you can close your house for a day by quietingrepparttar 124056 phone, using pre-made or order out meals, etc.). Spend a self- caring time creating your plan. Take a look what Jim Horan,repparttar 124057 author, writes about business plans. "Writing allows others to participate in your dreams and give you feedback" Writing is a tool to help you ... ~~see what you're thinking ~~turn your dreams into something "real" ~~go forrepparttar 124058 clarity you desire ~~stay focused ~~get prioritized ~~take immediate action ~~help you remember what it is you wanted to do

Once you write your vision, try it on for size. Learn to stretch, "act as if", make small changes, or make some big changes to your vision. If it feels good, keep it. If it doesn't adjust it further. Main thing is to be comfortable with it. Rememberrepparttar 124059 quote about insanity that goes like this "insanity is doingrepparttar 124060 same things over and over again expecting different results". "Try on" new concepts, new ways of doing things, and recommendations from others. Coaches are especially good at assisting you as you s t r e c h, s t r e c h, and then s t r e c h some more! So stretch right into your vision!

I bet that once your vision has been formalized, you'll wonder why you didn't do it sooner! And you'll be amazed atrepparttar 124061 time it takes to do vs.repparttar 124062 time (and energy) you've invested just thinking about doing it!
