Think it's too late? Change Your Mindset and work on a plan.
Sounds familiar? You wake up one day, asking, have I left it too late? You’re lost in thoughts thinking this isn’t the life I want, when will it change, or are you considering booking your next appointment with the clairvoyant? Two good news then my friend. If there’s a will, it means there’s a want! The secret is to take action! In this post, I want to show you that no it’s not too late to make a change, follow a dream. I will give you baby steps ideas to help you move forward and get your mojo back!
We are also living at a time where lots and I say lots of women 50+ and over are making it mainstream, look at them as role models and if you think no one is like me, even better you will be the first.
OVERCOME THE FEAR OF CHANGE BY FOCUSING ON REALITY
When you consider making changes in your life, fear will take hold of your thoughts and big time! But this is only your mind creating thoughts which have no foundation with reality.
You have these ideas but not sure where to go, when everything looks impossible, take the emotions out of the equation and be pragmatic. Let’s start to explore your dreams and make some planning.
Get clarity about what you want. Write a plan for the next 3, 6, 9 months, 2 years, 5 years. What is your big dream? Write it down and work backwards. For now, your dream might seem completely unattainable but in 5 years?
For sure buying a flat in Paris will not happen tomorrow, in 5 years? Don’t tell me it’s too late, if you don’t start for sure it will never happen.
Write down how much money you will need to buy this flat? Divide the down payment amount by 5, calculate how much you will have to pay each month to repay your mortgage. How much will you need to earn each year to reach your down payment? How will you earn that money? What are you goals?
By cutting your goals into smaller chunks it you will make it more reachable, the big picture is the flat but before that you need to work out the steps that will help you get there.
Nothing will happen if you continue hoping to win the lottery. Take action, set goals and you have much more chances to get there, and having a WHY will help you stick to your project, make your business work, ask for that promotion.
What ever your project, create the big picture and then work backwards, write everything down, you dream might be much smaller than buying a flat but you need plan, and create traction by taking action. It will not always work they way you expected but keep your eyes on the prize and celebrate each milestone.
PS. What is your wildest dream right now?
