Ideal Scene and Goal Setting

Since I’ve been reading Marc Allen’s book The Greatest Secret of All – Moving Beyond Abundance to a Life of True Fulfillment
I’m only on the first chapter - (see my previous post Happy New Year!) I’ve been seriously putting something down on paper as to what I ideally want my life to be like in 5 years. It’s taking work to get my mind wrapped around what I truly want and the feelings of what that would be like. Sometimes, the thought of what I think I would like is hard to imagine and even harder to put a feeling to. I’ve not had the experience or not known anyone who has had what I imagine I could have. So, as you can see, this is a bit of a challenge to me but I’ve started and have taken action and with that it already has been exciting. Marc Allen goes onto say that when you get your Ideal Scene written down, then the goals of how to achieve that start to form and I can see this happening.

To go along with creating an image of your ideal scene in 5 years, I read an article this morning by Steve Pavlina called The Power of Clarity. This is a great source to writing your goals and why it’s important. For me, it’s important first to be clear on what I want my life to look like in 5 years and get that down in writing. Then, I’ll have the feel and vision of it and then write down the goals. Although, I’m finding they go hand in hand. I know I’ve heard the importance of this over and over but this time it has clicked in a way that it feels real.

In the past I’ve shied away from resolutions because I knew I wouldn’t stick to them so I didn’t want to even take the time to go through the process. So, taking these steps is huge for me.

How about you? Have you been clear, really clear on what you want your life to look like if you could have anything you dare to imagine? Start today, by writing down in detail what you want and don’t hold back anything. It’s your start in the creating process of making it happen and attracting what you need to make it happen. Then, as you get that completed, set goals – short term and long term. Commit to it and you’ll see the universe work with you in seeing this through. Document the process and keep your ideal life and goals in front of you where you can read them on a daily basis. This keeps the energy and feel of your creation alive. I know I’ll be here doing it with you and we can report our progress together.

I've been thinking a lot about what my completely fulfilled life would look like. It's intimidating to create a vision for my life, but if I don't aim at anything, I won't hit what I want.

Sunny - thank you so much for your comment. I can identify with what you're saying about creating a vision. It seems like I pick at it but never seem to follow through until this time with the New Year. Do it for yourself. You'll be able to do it this time too, as Catherine Ponder and Marc Allen say,"In an easy and relaxed manner, in a healthy and positive way!"
