“Today is the first day of the rest of your life”: an American proverb or saying which we have all heard at sometime in our lives. Think of today as being the first day in the life that you wish to build.
The Mental Shift
Key: You must think of yourself as a work-in-progress in your new role. The new role for your new life could be a new career, new love, new attitudes, new fitness, new inspirations, or new aspirations
Three Reasons To Claim Your New Life
1. Confidence: You are the catalyst as you initiate the transition. Shifting from a mindset of “I want this to happen” to “I am in the process of building it” recognizes your new life as unfolding in front of you right now and not some future occurrence.
2. Responsibility: You take control of your life. Once you have claimed your new life, you will see that the only thing standing in your way of building it is you.
3. Opportunities: You will be fully open to opportunities that present themselves
Your “mental claim” on your new life is the step that will ground your commitment and ignite the energy in you to perform the external work necessary for your new life.
