What if you had only three months to live, and the only way you could extend your life was by doing the things that you always wanted to do but never did? Take a moment and think about it. The stipulations are as follows: it has to be do-able within three months, it has to be something that you daydreamed about constantly; it has to be something you never fulfilled or completed in the past.
Consider the following:
The first step would be to calm down, because you may be panicking about the impending end.
Think for a moment and pull yourself back together.
Express yourself and don’t censor or edit yourself in any way.
Be how you want to be and create what you want.
It is no one’s business what you choose to do.
It must be something fun that you would derive pleasure from.
It makes you happy and it is important to you and it could if you choose make others happy.
You have only yourself to please.
Ultimately it is nobody’s business but your own.
You do not have to focus on anything other than your daydream and your creations.
These are the rules
- You must be completely honest with yourself and that may be something you have never done before in a truly conscious way.
- Full self-expression, it is necessary to unleash your passions and everything that makes you, you.
- Willingness to fall on your face and risk embarrassment (FYI embarrassment can be eliminated)
- Speak to someone every week to keep you accountable
- It must be something you have never done before
- You have to be willing to fail and fail big.
- You must be patient
- You must trust yourself and you cannot ever make yourself wrong (FYI there are ways to resolve it if you do).
You must be willing to experience trusting yourself and creating your dreams so they will materialize. The other side of this experience is that negative thoughts materialize and unlike your daydreams and fantasies, negative thoughts take little or no energy to materialize. So you must recognize your words have power to create thoughts, and thoughts create actions.
You must be willing to admit when you are afraid. When you do not, your fear becomes worse. If however, you admit that you are afraid, the fear can disappear and you will discover you have power. When you admit to your concerns, they too will disappear. When you do not, they stay in your head and they become even bigger.
You must be willing to distinguish each concern and barrier separately, rather than roll them all into one mass, which tends to show up as procrastination.
The flipside, if you really only had three months, you would start believing in yourself like never before. You would transform your mindset and start playing in the universe; then you would realize it is an abundant playground. You could start believing that you are the captain of your own life. You create and generate your life, job, relationships, finances and you can really have whatever you want. This is because you do it already. (Don’t believe me, just look at yourself, your nice apartment, crappy apartment, money, no money – you created all of that!) You would either realize that you are amazing, you are beautiful and there is nothing ugly, bad, broke or fat about you. You would become naturally generous with yourself which in turn would transfer to others who would want to be around you so much more. Let’s imagine that you created a fabulous week for yourself. You had a wonderful experience this week because on Monday you said everything you needed to say, you were honest with yourself, you honored you word, you did all the things you said you would do. You generated courage to follow through and it’s now Friday and your week went the way you planned it and it all turned out really well. What’s next? You get to say. You always get to say how it goes.
