If you want to make a written plan, some of the questions you might begin with are:
Where do I want to be three months from now; six months from now; or a year from now?
How am I going to get there?
What do I have to do to get myself from where I am to where I want to be?
What’s the first, small step I can take to get moving?
Stephen Brennan said, “Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a written plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success.”
You will often be surprised how often the circumstances which will confront you, will fit in with plans you have laid out in advance.
Bernard Baruch, an adviser to many US Presidents, said, “Whatever failures I have known, whatever errors I have committed, whatever follies I have witnessed in private and public life have been the consequence of action without thought.”
It’s so easy to be in the space of ego. You’ll know it because you may be critical of yourself. The inner critic downplays successes, holds you back, suggests you shouldn’t make a daring choice, and generally brings your energy down.
Happiness can shine through when you release the ego consciousness and step into the light of all that is. Happiness wants to find you. As you recognize ego and the way that it wants to protect you from any changes, you can burst its bubble and let your true self shine.
