Okay — we got the hard part out of the way!
We took a long look in the mirror and we accepted where we are.
At least I accepted where I was.
I admit, it wasn’t easy — and it definitely wasn’t easy putting it down in print for all to see.
But you know what — it was easier than I thought — and it brought with it a great sense of relief.
So now what?
Well, now we come to the fun part — we get to decide where we want to go.
If I look at my list, there are some things that can’t be changed. Well, honestly — only 2 things can’t be changed.
Right? Let’s look at some of the other things on that list.
- Name? Changeable
- Hair color? Changeable
- Eye color? Changeable
- Location? Changeable
- Income? Changeable
- Marital Status? Changeable
So only 2 things cannot be changed.
Everything else on the list is up in the air to be whatever you/I want it to be.
Or so we’ll imagine for this exercise.
Taking a cue from Anthony Robbins we’re going to imagine the most dynamic, exciting, passion filled life that we could lead and we’re going to do that by replacing things on our list that are undesirable with those that are more desirable.
How awesome is that?!
This way we’ll have a road map toward the most exciting life. The best us possible. The us of our dreams. And we’ll know right away what we need/want to change.
So let’s get to it.
And don’t hold back! This only works if you let yourself go and free yourself up enough to imagine THE BEST YOU POSSIBLE! Without limitation. Without constraint. Just have at it.
Okay — no more stalling.

Talk about intense!
My first instinct is to become a little overwhelmed here. I mean, seriously, I want to increase my income by a factor of 10? Really?
Who do I think I am?
But it’s not my place to question, and to doubt. That’s gotten me where I am right now.
It’s my job to dream, and believe, and let my inner self that knows no boundaries to express itself — and to trust.
In that spirit, it’s my job to now find a way to get to where I want to go.
And go there!
And remember, finances and income are the things I am going to work on because I have been a chronic under earner my entire life.
The things you want to change may, and probably will, be completely different.
It’s important to listen to yourself, and what you want to change.
And to make that happen!
So now that we have that out of the way, let’s move on to Step 3…
