The last couple of weeks, I’ve written about seeing your life as a ship. In order to live the life of your dreams – the life you were meant to live – you lovingly and joyfully create a compass to guide you. Though there are four points on a compass, this compass is made up of three parts.
Today, I want to talk about this third and very critical part, without which your compass can never fully assist you on your journey.
Look at building your ship this way:
Your rudder represents your personal values, and guides the direction of your life. There is tremendous power in discovering and living according to our highest values, and experiencing inner peace as the natural consequence.
Your anchor is how you want to feel. The quiet whispers of your heart’s desires define that anchor.
Now your ship needs some assistance. You need the anchor’s presence to ground you. You need your rudder’s direction to chart your course. But no matter where your ship goes, but in order to journey the oceans your ship needs power.
To experience the best journey of your life, you are going to have to hoist your sails.
Your sails are ACTION.
You can dream big. You can create soulful intentions. You can lay solid goals with milestones. But unless you take action, you’ll never realize your dreams, intentions or goals.
(If this sounds familiar, it’s because I gave you a big hint last week when I shared that you get clear about how you want to feel and then you begin doing things that make you feel that way.)
Yes, my dear, there is a very important component to living the life of your dreams…
You can create novels and symphonies in your head, but until you put pen to paper and record them, you’re not a writer nor a composer. You’re a dreamer. Don’t get me wrong. I love dreaming. I’m a huge fan of day dreams. I applaud you being a dreamer.
But I want you to achieve your dreams, and you aren’t going to be able to do that unless you take action.
I’m well versed at being the writer who only dreams of writing and I’m so happy to tell you that I’ve completed my eBook Three Steps to Sailing Into Your Best Year: Creating Your 2012 Compass. I’ve written hundreds of blog posts, essays and short stories in my lifetime. I’ve completed big chunks of two different novels.
This is the first time I’ve completed a soul-centered – wholehearted, living book that I know I was meant to write.
This creation of my eBook was me – seizing the power of my purpose in life. This was me stopping the cycle of writing only in my head. I rose out of a creative storm of ideas, wrote a single blog post about viewing life from the top of the mast, and continued to write and build upon creating a powerful eBook. One tiny piece at a time.
Actions don’t have to be huge acts, though they can be. You can take baby steps by taking small, deliberate actions. You can simply lean into and gently steer yourself toward the direction. Leaning and steering are powerful actions.
In my new eBook: Three Steps to Sailing Into Your Best Year: Creating Your 2012 Compass the next step in creating your compass is Hoisting Your Sails: Rooting Out and Defining Your Power .
I know how scary it can be to take action.
It can be downright paralyzing.
The lizard brain begs you to be content with dreaming, because change can propel us into unknown territory. Part Three: Hoisting Your Sails is a guidebook for helping you to overcome being paralyzed by rooting out and defining the powerful actions you want to take in your amazing and beautiful life.
I have faith in you.
I have faith that you will seize the exquisite power of action as you step into your dharma.
I know that you can take your sails from storage, hoist them, and let the ship of your life sail into the most amazing year of your life.
In order to celebrate the power of completion, taking action, and embracing the beautiful power of my dharma, I’ve decided to release not just Part Three of the eBook, but all of it. Yes, you can get 100% of Three Steps to Sailing Into Your Best Year: Creating Your 2012 Compass today. It includes:
