The Big Shift
You've got big dreams. Ideas that are going to take your life in a complete one-eighty degree turn, right? Like creating better balance between work and home, creating more organization, or finding the perfect mate. You're raring to go except for one thing - how to get started. Such a life altering goal is going to require some major serious action, right?
Or will it? Somewhere along the line the mind seems to directly infer that big is to big, as small is to small and that is just erroneous when it comes to goals.
Take as an example the person who wants to de-clutter a home. A huge undertaking - yes. While going through the house and pitching everything that is not a dire necessity is an option, creating systems for various items/rooms/house occupants is a much smaller task which will yield far better long-term results. Why? In the second scenario the goal, the action, and commitment to the goal were all involved, elements required to produce results. A monumental shift does not require a monumental action.
The Success Tool for the Big Shift
1.. Change your thoughts regarding your anticipated outcome. If you think that your project is too big for you to accomplish, it's going to be. If it does seem too monumental, simply break it down into two or more smaller tasks that can be managed more effectively. How you perceive it, so shall it be.
2.. Get clear about the action and your plan of attack. Ever have to prepare a meal at the last minute when you're not sure if you have all of the ingredients, the pots and pans are all dirty in the sink, and you have a deadline of less than thirty minutes? Well that's what a poorly planned goal plays out like. Wouldn't a hastily prepared to-do list, a recipe card, or even a handy phone book with circled ads for good quick take-out make things much easier? Why spend the majority of your time running around willy nilly? You already possess the best planning tool around - your mind. Use it to specifically determine what you want to accomplish and then plan it all out in detail. Determine which small quick approaches can be taken to get you started down the right path. The more details the better because it allows you to see the outcome. Forget seeing is believing! Seeing is ACHIEVING.
3.. Commit to it. Write it down and start living your life "as if". As if it's already come to be. Think about how much more confident and at ease you are when you have experience doing a task, job skill, or project. Think of this as a dress rehearsal for your success. The better you know your lines (your actions), and your blocking (your plan of attack), the smoother the performance will be. You owe it to your audience (yourself) to be as prepared as possible-always.
A few small changes are often all that are required to yield huge returns. In cases where there are several steps, small changes are basically catalysts that create chain reactions that result in the monumental shift that you are looking for. The Big Shift is just the way to ramp-up your successful approach to change, and actually make it so. It's so much more about starting from within with your thoughts, since thoughts are the preschool for actions. Just remember the big shift isn't all about big action - just some action.
