It's Time to SOAR!

2016 is now a page in the history book. Did you accomplish the goals and dreams you planned? Are you better off today than you were a year ago? Or are you feel stuck in the same rut, the same nowhere relationship, doing the same boring things, and unhappy with who and where you are in life?

If this is you, get ready. When we start feeling stale, that is a good thing. It means we are on the brink of  a forward leap and the New Year is a perfect time for leaps. But first, there is one thing we must do.

In order to move forward, we have to leave some things behind. Change means trading the old for something new and - ideally - something better.  We leave behind  people and activities that have become stale and unfruitful to open the door for new opportunities, new people, and new activities that will bring us joy. It's a letting go kind of thing. We only have so much time, energy, and money and it is important to be mindful of just how and where we spend these treasures.

Sometimes letting go means making tough choices. This is where the rubber hits the road and we have to really dig deep to find out what matters most to us.  Here are a few examples.

Recently, several friends have married. They sold their homes and moved to new cities, two of them out of the country. They left behind their friends and families to pursue a new life with their chosen mate. Life's choices become more difficult the closer we get to what we truly want from life.

Are you pursuing your dreams and aspirations? Rising to new levels? Or are you content with the status quo? The same old same old? Status quo is when boredom sets in and we lose our joy and zest for life. We were meant to fly like eagles and SOAR!

You have more power than you realize. You were meant for more than status quo! We each have a destiny to fulfill. I love the way author Marianne Williamson puts it when she says, "You began as a thought in the mind of God". If we want to soar like the eagle, we must ignite our personal power.

In the coming weeks,  I will be sharing with you the ten steps to igniting the power within so stay tuned. Pass this on to a friend and come join me for the adventure of a lifetime.
