Getting clear on what I want has been very helpful as of lately.
"Once you realize what you want to do, it's much easier to know what you have to do and once you know what you have to do the next step is to put in that work day in and day out." - @mia_fitness
When I'm crystal clear on what I want, it's easier to tell when I'm in alignment or out of alignment. I become easily aware when I'm going against what I'm aiming for. So I just shift and get back on track. More and more it get's easier because the body and mind like to be in alignment. We like congruency.
So I've been getting clear in a few ways.
One way has been to be very specific in what I want and how I want it it to look.
Another way has been to be very specific in what I want to experience and how I want to feel.
Here's an example:
Desire: I want to create a business where I offer life coaching, programs, courses, and other ways to offer support in one's personal life journey towards a better, more exciting life or towards a specific goal.
Option 1: Get very specific about what I want and how I want it to look...
So with this process, I take time to imagine what it looks like to run this kind of business. I imagine as best as I can. What are my day-to-day experiences? What does my business website look like? How are the interactions with my clients? How are my courses set up? Is it online only? Do I have an office space where clients come? How do I share my material with others? How often do I work? What are my hours? How much money do I bring in? Who do I work with? What's my niche?
During this process, I'm just throwing out ideas, visualizing, and honestly getting excited about the possibilities. Think BIG!
It can be a bit of a stretch, especially if you're typically the one to get caught up in thinking HOW you'll be able to achieve this. That's not the point of this first step. You just want to GET CLEAR on what you want. See what resonates. See what gets your heart excited.
Making this a regular and intentional practice gets your creative juices flowing and overtime it gets easier and becomes fun. I believe it starts to tap into your subconscious mind, which is the aspect of you that really runs the show in that it really directs your habits, actions, thoughts, and decisions.
Option 2: Get very specific about what I want to experience and how I want to feel...
For me the first option feels like setting up the stage but this option feels like getting into character.
I start to ask myself questions like, Who is the version of me that already is a boss, running her own life coaching business? How does it feel to be living in this desire? How would I speak to myself and others? How would I feel every morning? What would I be doing daily?
Making this a regular and intentional practice allows you to become aware of how you're currently showing up and how in alignment it is to the version of you in your desired state. Transform yourself because the more you allow it, the easier it is to find alignment, feel good and take action.
It's hard to make moves or know what actions to take when you are not clear on what you want and when you are doubting your ability to experience it. Doubts and fears tend to creep up because there is a feeling of the unknown. Things aren't clear so you get stuck. Thankfully we have a miraculous and imaginative mind that can help us. The steps just start to appear and sometimes you don't even know how the dots connect at first. You just know it feels good and you have less and less resistance moving in that direction. Before you know it you're right where you intended to be.

Finally finished my first part of my study in nutrition. I’m seriously proud of this - it bar far outdoes any school work I’ve ever done (which I’m certainly not proud of).
It just shows me that if it’s within my interest, I really am not as stupid as I’ve always seen myself as. I’ve got this. This is seriously so interesting, and I love learning about the body in depth and how it works.
My biggest struggle is the time that I have for it. With it being work related studying, I try to fit it around my job, but at the moment I’m working loads and it is leaving me winded and with no energy, so I took the opportunity to get the rest done on my off day, and it feels good.
Closer to my goals!
