This week’s quote encourages you to be the master of your own plan. It sounds simple enough to say, but when it comes time to doing something, some struggle. That’s why I have 3 important points to remind you of how to get back in your own game.
Own Your Truth
Everything begins with the truth. The truth will set you free! Our truth is not always examined by us, yet it is the path to our freedom. If you focus on how you think you are supposed to feel or the way something is supposed to go, you are heading in the wrong direction. And if you allow people to tell you what you are supposed to do based on what others are doing, please don’t let that soak into your spirit as truth.
Your truth should always be investigated through your own lens because you know yourself better than anyone else. For example, you want to spend time meditating during your day off. Someone says to you, “you should join this meditation group. They really know how to do it.” This person probably means well in their suggestion. The truth is you get more clarity and benefit from doing the meditation on your own. The point is stick to what works for you. It really could be anything, writing, drawing, exercising, etc… you must own your truth.
Stop Looking for Blame
Why is it that when something goes wrong, blame is sought? I like to think of this as a distraction, in some cases. It takes time to figure out where the fault is and why. It seems hard for us to believe we could hinder our own progress, so we take time to work through that. Then, for some, there is the expectancy that we should get motivated by watching or talking to. All of this takes the focus off getting back on track, mastering your plan. I do understand taking some time to get the lessons, so you can do better next time. That is a positive move.
Lingering too long on who or what is to blame for your goals or plans not accomplished may make for a good discussion. Just remember it doesn’t get anything done.
Only you can work it like nobody else on your goals. Please hear me on this. You can have as many consultants you wish, but when it comes to putting the work in, that’s where you take the lead. Think about it, if you have a dream, do you expect someone else to live your dream for you? That is also how it is in the process of working on the dream. It requires your effort, attention, and time to see it through.
Being the master of your plan doesn’t mean you will always know everything there is to do. I’m a nurse, yet it doesn’t mean that I know everything about health either. The thing is, no one should expect you to, not even you. You do have the responsibility to find out what is important to know for your craft as a duty to yourself. So, work it!
The take away with this blog is summed up in the three points, own your truth, stop looking for blame, and work it. I hope you can see how they pave the path for you to be the master of your plans. I’m fully there with you. Just like many of you, I need reminders too. Just remember, life is always happening. You are the master, and I encourage you to do it well.
