Part IV: Moving Forward
Moving forward sounds simple enough. Once you have reached this step in the process, you have everything you need to have a successful journey into your new and improved life. Now, you are working toward building a more positive mindset. You know what your work areas are. You have your road map. It’s time to put everything into action and to get moving.
The Importance of Persistence
We have discussed persistence in previous steps, and it is still relevant to speak on now. The reason persistence is coming up several times throughout this course is not to be redundant. Instead, the purpose of mentioning persistence so much is to drive home the point that you must be RELENTLESS on this journey.
If you want to live your dreams, you have to commit to doing the work. The work is mostly internal. Below is a list of the types of work you may need to do in order to accomplish your goals.
A paradigm shift includes changing your beliefs to match what you want rather than what you have and have been conditioned/programmed to believe.
If your dream requires that you take on formal education, self-education, or vocational training, you will have to dedicate time to completing this step, before you can advance and accomplish your goal(s).
Breaking & Developing Habits
You may have developed one or more habits that can hold you back from reaching your goal. If that is true, you will need to break those habits and form new ones that cater to your achievement and ultimate success.
Changing Relationship Dynamics
You may currently be surrounded by people who either don’t have your best interest at heart, or who are not the most positive influences in your life. It is not always necessary to completely remove or dismiss people from your life. However, it is very necessary to change the dynamic of your relationship with those people, if you want to accomplish your goal.
You may have to choose to love some people from a distance, at least until you get your head on straight and have built momentum in the direction of your goal.
Now, you are ready to move forward in creating the life of your dreams. Good luck on your journey, friend!
