I have learned something from my recent experiment to invite Get a Life readers to post their big vision for their life on my blog. Since I have a sizeable subscriber list, I was expecting to see the comments pour in, as people eagerly shared their aspirations with others for support and encouragement. Instead, what I saw was a bit fat silence.
Then I got a message from one of my readers:
"Your Posting last night is just a little too scary! I can’t tell you the terror that rose up in me when asked to articulate what I really want."
Now I get it – creating a big vision can be threatening and intimidating and can make you feel bad for not knowing what it is!
So maybe a better question is:
What do you struggle with when trying to articulate what you really want to do with your life?
If we get this dialogue going, then I can share some strategies for overcoming these challenges.
I do like what Vicky White says about the Law of Attraction:
"The Law of Attraction states that I attract to my life whatever I give my energy, focus, and attention to, whether wanted or unwanted."
Do you played that ? http://tinyurl.com/myfuntime – its fun!
What do you like doing in your free time? I mean not only free time during weekdays or at weekends but also free time during holidays. As far as I’m concerned, in my free time I like doing crosswords, learning foreign languages and reading magazines. Maybe it sounds banal but all these activities make me relaxed. What about you?
Ok, I’ll bite. I’ve returned back to cubicle nation to stash cash for my next run at a solo career. But I’m tempted by the nice, regular paycheck, benefits, etc. I feel like I’m getting addicted to Lazy-Boy lifestyle. So the big trade off is giving up a relatively sure thing for a higher risk venture (which by the way I’m still trying to identify). If I was single, no problema. But married with kids in CA? Gotta stop to think. My struggle is that practicality has overrun big audacious vision, so much so that vision has become more like a walk in heavy fog (unless of course somebody is willing to pay me LOTS of money to eat chocolate!)
