So it’s May the 4th. I have only made the Star Wars joke once today so far, which is pretty good (for me). And now for those of my generation who get it, May the 4th be with you. Forgive me – I digress.
A little while ago I had a very inspirational lunch with an old friend who told me she had decided from now on she would choose her clients. She had shifted her attitude, aimed higher and realised that she only wanted to work with movers and shakers. Love it, I thought.
It reminded me that what we think about and subsequently act on largely determines our reality. Decisions are so powerful. Sometimes making changes in our lives really is as simple as deciding and then taking action on all the opportunities that come our way.
Yesterday I received an offer of an opportunity that at one time in my career I would have jumped at. The thing is that right now, I am aiming higher. I have decided to study and pursue a dream and do the things I love. This means saying no to the things I like a little bit to leave the space to do the things I really love, and do them properly.
From now on, I am choosing. I am aiming for the stars and maybe overshooting so I get even further.
This month is all about cleaning house of the crappy things, and making space for the great ones – physically, emotionally and intellectually.
What do you need to clean out to make space for the great stuff?
