What to Do?

Life is meant to be lived well, with happiness, health and fulfillment.

Be clear about your mission in life.
Examples:"Love. Serve. Remember God."
"Inspire all to follow highest calling"

State and follow your highest values (principles).
Clarify your top five values. (Ex. Honesty, inner peace, faithfulness, contribution)
These are your guideposts for all life choices and relationships.

Set clear achievable goals with simple steps itemized.
Return to mission, principles and goals weekly.

Clear away all distractions, detours and delays.
Simplify your life to focus on what matters and is meaningful.

Acknowledge and appreciate yourself and those who support you.
Forgive and let go of those who interfere, doubt and criticize you.

Eliminate all sabotaging thoughts, words and activities.
Speak only about what your CAN Do, rather than on what you can't do.

Talk to yourself and act in positive and affirming way.
Change the habits of complaining, waiting, demanding, or doubting into positive habits of appreciation, action, requesting, and affirming will change the quality of your everyday life.

Celebrate each day the progress made.
Focus on what you have accomplished rather than what waits to be done.

Loving you in living what is true for you,
