1. LIFE PROJECT

Updated: Jan 11, 2019



HOW TO CREATE A SUCCESSFUL YEAR: PART 1


Too often I work with clients who have no plans for life. They do not know where they are going, why they do what they do, and yet they are still in action, often tired, stressed, and close to a burn out.


How is this possible? Because they live a life of reaction, a life programmed by society, the education received, cultural stereotypes ... the years pass and the moment arrives where we stop and ask ourselves: where is the sense in this agitated life where I work, raise children, take care of the family, am there for others ... and I feel empty?


I compare this situation often with a car trip where we do not have the address, we do not know where we are going, but we drive at 100km / h to get there. The result is that at one point we run out of gas, the car stops and we realise that we have driven without a real goal for hours without even knowing where we are, exhausted, frustrated, lost. Does this remind you of something?


Myself, I was in this situation for years. It is called "rat race: an endless, self-defeating, or pointless pursuit. This rat race is the leading cause of chronic stress because there does not seem to be a way out".


To work on this "life project", I often ask for a fairly simple exercise, although for many of us it is difficult the first time we attempt it:


Visualise yourself and the life of your dreams in five years.


You may do this first exercise only. If it does seem difficult, or if you want to deepen your clarity, you can spend more time with the following exercises (and I have a specific program just for "clarity" but I'm not going to weigh you down, even if CLARITY is the basis of everything!). If you are content with a "draft", you can return to this visualisation several times a year.


Nothing is engraved in marble and everything changes!

(remember, repeat, keep flexibility ...)



TASK # 1:

Visualise and describe your "dream life" (how do you see yourself in 5 years) in an ideal world, where everything is possible. Do not limit yourself to ... I do not have the time, I do not have money, I'm alone ....


where you live?

how is your house / apartment?

who lives with you?

how do you feel? (the "feeling" is VERY important)

what expression do you have on your face?

how are you dressed?

how is your relationship with the person (s) with you?

what are you doing?

what is your job / business / activity?

how much money do you earn?

how much money do you have in your account?

what is your passive income (eg rent collection, income from financial investments, etc.)?

what car (if any) do you drive?

where and how do you spend your weekends, your holidays?

how are your relationship with your partner, your children, your colleagues, your boss, your friends ....

how many hours / day, days / week are you working?

how is your sex life?

what are your hobbies?

what are you learning again for a year?

how do you contribute to your community, to the world?

what is your personal development, or your spiritual practice?


....... DREAM!
