Claim Your New Life: The Mental Shift Required To Achieve Your Desired Results

“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

In order to claim your new life, you must go through a “mental shift” the process of letting go of the role that you played in your “former” life to accept and trust your new role.

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.

A Plan Of Action Building Block #3: Help Is On The Way

“Action speaks louder than words”
“Fail to plan, plan to fail”
“He/She is all talk”

These phrases are three common American colloquialisms that we have all heard or experienced at one time or another. Yet how often do people forget, ignore, or skip creating a plan of action when attempting to change anything?

In the first two articles in this series we identified awareness and interests as the first steps necessary for you to begin the process of changing your life.

What’s Stopping You?

Ask yourself the reason why you are not creating an action plan and the answers, if you are honest, may surprise you:

1. Spontaneity- thinking you are better off being spontaneous and allowing things to happen is the fastest method to getting no where near your goal to change your life

2. Structure is Confining-the belief that you do not need an outlined road map (plan) because it may restrict the “discovery” process and ultimately your progress, is faulty thinking. Without a plan of action, you will hinder your ability to change, leave yourself without a tool to measure your progress on your new path, and set yourself up for colloquialism #2 “Fail to plan, plan to fail.”

3. How to Plan-most people do not understand the most effective method of producing a plan of action. That is not a problem as long as you realize that you may need help in this process.
