Often when things are going well, we overlook the possibilities of true greatness. We remain stuck in the ‘good’ when things can be extraordinary. Breaking away from your personal status quo requires you to start imagining greatness to then reach it.
Here are three steps to get you started.
One, identify and get clear on what you want in your life or business right now (not in 5 or 10 years. NOW). Set aside at least 30 minutes of uninterrupted time (ideally in nature) with no devices, to imagine what greatness looks and feels like for you. Be specific. Listen to what your heart desires.
Two, write it all down. Don’t censure yourself. Just let yourself dream. No shame or guilt, just let it flow and imagine big. Moving it from the imaginary onto the page will shift it from hypothetical to concrete.
Third, make it actionable. Break down what you want into everyday steps. Identify what you actually need to do to start moving from good to great. Create an itinerary of what specifically you’ll start doing immediately. Chunk it down into specific hourly steps that can be weaved into your existing day and routines. Keep it simple, but take action. Even the smallest changes will result in shifts. Consistency is key.
Once you have begun, share with at least one person for accountability. Again, by getting this out of your head and into the world, it moves it from intangible to actual. You have the power to imagine greatness and make it a reality. The choice is yours.
