Find Time to Give Yourself Exactly What You Need Every Single Day!

Finding time to get everything done in any given day can be a very tall order. How often do you feel like you’re running against a stopwatch and depleting yourself in the process?

Don’t you sometimes wish that someone would come along and give you whatever it is that you need in that moment?

Well, the good news is, that “someone” is YOU!

Think about it. You have the power to give yourself exactly what you need every single day. You really do – I’m not just saying that.

Here’s something I’d love for you to try as the new year gets underway:

As you begin each day, spend a few moments with yourself. You could try meditating, going for a brief walk, doing some journaling or stretching – anything that slows you down and puts you in touch with yourself.

At the end of those moments, think about one thing that you want to give yourself as the day progresses. Don’t limit your thinking – all the possibilities are open to you.

  • Maybe it will be something intangible like self-confidence or focus.
  • Or maybe some days it will be something quite concrete like a movie at 7:30 PM, or a piece of chocolate after dinner.
  • Whatever it is, it should be something that you would like to give to yourself based on your connection in that moment.
  • And whatever it is, be sure that you follow through on it!

At the end of each day, check in with yourself. Did you give yourself what you promised? Or did you give yourself something different?

It helps to keep a small notebook and just jot down, each morning, what you offer yourself. Then at night you can revisit your book and write down what you received. You may begin to see some interesting patterns.

When you give yourself exactly what you need every single day, you are building a warm and trusting relationship with yourself. You will notice that everything feels more positive and more possible as you build a track record of self-nurturing follow-through.

This is such a powerful and sustaining practice … I highly recommend it!

As you transform yourself and your relationship with time, consider this:  Are you an entrepreneur, consultant, or small business owner who’s ready to take the next big step?  If you want to learn how to create and to keep a successful business running on your own, then this is for you! “How to Create Credibility as a Freelancer” is a booklet with 70 expert-proven tips that will help you recharge your energy and motivation, increase your visibility, and sharpen those vital organizational and time management skills.

Find Time to Use Your Choices to Move Into Your Power-3 Time Truths

In our last post we explored the importance of knowing that time is concrete and finite, and of using the time that you have to its fullest.  A key component in being able to make the most of your time and move into you power lies in making choices.

And remember, not-choosing is also a choice, albeit one that is guaranteed to keep you stuck.

So, you really have two choices to make, when it comes to choice-making:

  • What choice will you make and, even more fundamentally,
  • Will you choose or not?

Let’s examine that second, fundamental question more closely.  It is asking you whether you will move into your power by Acting or whether you will choose to not choose – and Procrastinate?

The decision is always yours and yours alone, and it is a powerful one.  Here are 3 Time Truths to help you use your time choices to move you into your power, so you can live your moments as fully as possible:

1st Time Truth:  Procrastinators fall short of the necessary level of commitment to bring about the changes they’d like to make in their lives.  But it doesn’t need to be that way.

The Action you can take to counter Procrastination is to Commit now. Like the Chinese general Xiang Yu in the third century B.C., decisive individuals “burn their ships” as they cross the rivers to new land, to erase any temptation to retreat. Decide now. Commit. Move forward.

2nd Time Truth:  Procrastinators squander their potential by waiting for a better deal.

The Action you can take to stop waiting and start walking your own powerful path is to Engage now. Living each moment as fully as you can and giving everything you have to whatever you are doing is the opposite of sitting on the sidelines.  There is nothing to wait for.  This moment is everything, and the more fully you can realize that, the more fully you’ll be able to live.

3rd Time Truth:  Procrastinators hand over the power of their lives to circumstances beyond their control.

The Action you can take to change that for yourself is to Claim your power now. You are unstoppable when you are willing to invest your energy and heart in the life you value the most. When you truly value your life, you live in real time. You know that your time choices are entirely in your hands and that you, not external circumstances, determine how you use your time.

Do you welcome your opportunity to live your life to its fullest and move into your power?  You see, action and change require commitment.  I guarantee that you will not only find time as you commit to fully exercise your power of choice, you will also create a stronger, more confident self.

What is your next powerful choice to find more time?

Let’s explore time together …

And while I’m on the subject of exploration, transformation and empowerment, are you a solopreneur, consultant, or small business owner who’s ready to take the next big step?
