Some people are born planner; some live on the edge of their seat. I’m a planner. I like to think ahead, have options, and be ready for possible outcomes.
What holds people the most from planning is fear of not getting what they want. Before starting to plan, think about the following questions; be honest with yourself.
Are you afraid to fail your plan?
Failure is not an option. I get it; no one wants to fail. Unfortunately, many of us fear failure because we’ve failed at something in the past.
A way to beat failure fears is to simply train your mind to visualize everything you want from your plans. Consciously visualizing your plans will better help your sub-conscious mind to remember what it is that you want to accomplish.
Do your plans involve everything you want?
When I want something, I write it down and think about how I’m going to get it. Writing things down helps validate my thoughts.
It doesn’t matter how unrealistic it seems to you; there’s a way to accomplish everything you want in life. Remember that whatever you put out in the Universe will come to you.
Does your plan include your business and family?
When I think about my business, I think of what it will do for me and how it would affect my family in the future. Always consider business and family the same. They are part of your future.
It’s important always to ask yourself these questions. Doing so will ultimately lay out what it is that you want in life. Losing the fear, writing things down, and making your family part of your business will help you create balance and enjoy a happier life.
