Self-Determination is freedom, being in complete and total control of your reality. With self-determination you are the ultimate authority in your own life, decided what your values and beliefs are, and then acting in total accordance with them. You make the rules to your own reality
- Let’s Get Clear on Your Values
What are your top 5 values in your life?
Out of those 5 – what would be your NUMBER ONE VALUE!
Number that next 4 in order from 2 – 5.
What has to happen for you to feel your top value?
What has to happen for you to feel your second value?
What has to happen for you to feel your third value?
What has to happen for you to feel your forth value?
What has to happen for you to feel your fifth value?
How can you make these daily actions that you can do daily or weekly to feel your values more?
- Habit Stacking
Let’s make a list of healthy habits that could really help you at the moment?
What are they?
Could it be journaling, could it be going for a walk, could it be bringing meditation into your life?
Now look at that list – what on that list could you stack with a habit you already have?
Brushing Your Teeth – Being Mindful with Your Breathing
Going for a run – Listening to a Self-Development Podcast
Sitting down for your daily coffee – Journaling whilst doing that
I want you to brain storm your habit stacks, and come up with at least two that you can start bringing in to your daily life, start this from tomorrow.
FYI – It can take anywhere from 18 to 254 days for a person to form a new habit and an average of 66 days for a new behaviour to become automatic.
There’s no one-size-fits-all figure, which is why this time frame is so broad; some habits are easier to form than others, and some people may find it easier to develop new behaviours.
- Tracking Your Progress
If you have goals or achievements you are working towards how do you track them?
Do you start them, close your eyes and hope for the best?
Or do you have a plan in place in order to achieve that goal?
When I work through the SMART goal setting session with my clients we really get specific of when, where and how we are going to achieve the goal. This gives the subconscious mind clear instructions on what is going to be happening.
When we have the end goal, we can then break it down into monthly, weekly or even daily goals and achievements that move the needle towards the goal.
Do you have a goal in mind?
How are you going to track that goal?
How are you going to make that a commitment to yourself? Is anyone going to keep you accountable?
How are you going to celebrate when you reach the mini daily actions equalling in EPIC goal achievements?
- Enjoy Each Step
It’s very easy on this journey to always look at the end goal and not actually enjoy the journey. Remember, we only have one chance in this life and if we are always looking towards the end goal we miss the journey!
Each step in your journey can be a lot of fun if you learn to enjoy it. It’s never about what you do but how you do it. Take each step as an incredible moment to be enjoyed. See the victory right now not in the future. If you win your today, nobody can take your tomorrow away from you.
