Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about priorities and how our choices impact what we create in our world.
I see it like this:
Our choices are constantly telling The Universe what we want more or less of.
Pay your bills before you pay yourself and guess what you’re telling The Universe is a higher priority?
Engage in office gossip versus getting your work done so you can get home earlier and guess what’s not going to happen?
And, one of my personal favorites if you’re an entrepreneur: prioritize activities that don’t pay over ones that do and guess what The Universe isn’t going to know is a priority for you?
And, I bring this up to help bring more consciousness to what you’re choosing in your world, because I want to see you getting more of what you truly want.
If this isn’t the case, and you’re getting a random platter, some good and some not-so-good, what can you start to do to notice what you’re prioritizing and shift it, if it’s not aligned with your values and goals?
1. Make a list.
The first piece of this is looking at your values and goals. Make a list of each and anything else that’s important to you, in order of importance. This list may include things like family, friends, relationship, abundance, free time and vacations.
2. Look at your current schedule.
The next step is to take a look at your current schedule. Are the priorities you listed in #1, actually being prioritized, and if they are, are they being prioritized in order of what’s truly important to you?
3. If the answer is no…
If you answered no to #2, it’s time to start shifting your priorities. Important to note here: Just like Rome wasn’t built in a day, making
changes to how you’ve been doing something may take time too. It’s important to pick one priority you want to shift and just focus on that for the next several weeks/month. Once you feel good about that, you can pick another one and another one, until eventually, you’re priorities are aligned and you’re back to truly choosing.
4. Choose your words wisely.
As part of the above, notice your languaging. If you’re constantly talking about being broke or how hard life is, you will likely keep attracting this to you. And, while it may be hard to jump from that to being a multi-millionaire, using transitional statements can be helpful. What does this look like?
“I’m starting to… (make changes, spend more time with family and friends, earn more money, get more clients, etc.) or more generally, “Life is beginning to change/become easier.”
What’s one area in your life where you’re going to shift a priority and what are you going to do to shift it? I’d love to know! Comment below.
To true choice,
