Honor Your Priorities
The Thanksgiving post below discussed defining the top 5 priorities in your life. Now that you have your priorities front and center, how do you live congruent with those priorities? To honor your priorities in your life, here’s three steps to follow:
1. What are you most thankful for? What contributes to the quality of your life? You want to protect and nurture what you cherish most in your life. List the top 5 people/things that you are most grateful for now. These are the people/things that you’ll never want to take for granted.
2. What are your gifts and talents? These are the personal traits that you reflect in your life. Don’t be modest. Yes, you have many gifts and talents. You may not have acknowledged them before but now’s your time. Make a list of at least 10 qualities you have. If you can’t think of any, ask people in your life are close to you. It is your time to SHINE! Be your extraordinary self.
3. What are you missing right now that you want? List 5 things that you want to focus on to achieve. Make a commitment to yourself to stay focused to attain these 5 things. Develop a strategic plan to accomplish these things in your life. Take baby steps in the beginning and work up to the ultimate goal. Take the step to get started and create momentum to obtain your 5 things.
The formula to honor your priorities are:
What you are grateful for + Your gifts to share + What you want now = YOUR PRIORITIES!
Don’t be a bystander in your own life. It isn’t enough to merely allow life to just happen without your participation. Define and commit to your priorities. Take the first step in living your own best life. “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. -Confucius”
