How to Move Forward Daily to Attract Your Goals
By Valerie Dawson, Exclusive for MindTrip Magazine
If you don't first get your mind and feelings in line with what you want, all the action in the world won't do much to help you. You can probably think of plenty of people who work ridiculously hard and still have very little to show for it. Maybe you are even one of those people. I used to be, so I know what a frustrating place that is to be.
However, action is not such a bad thing either, and in fact it can be a great help in getting things moving in a better direction.
So - while you are focusing on improving your thoughts and choosing more positive emotions and expectations, you may also want to begin taking action on just one thing each day that will help you to improve your financial situation. It does not have to be a BIG action - just something to begin moving you in the direction you want to go.
Right now, take a few minutes to jot down a list of 10 things you could do to help improve your financial situation right now. Ideas might include: selling something you no longer need, applying for a better job, starting a savings plan, investing money for long-term growth, going back to school for more career training, getting a part time job to pay down debt, starting your own business, having a yard sale, and so on.
The whole point of action steps like these is NOT to try to change everything yourself, but rather to make you feel more empowered as you begin moving toward what you want. As you begin taking at least one step in that direction every day, you'll usually find that each consecutive step seems easier and easier - and before long momentum takes over. Before you know it, you're making huge changes in your life and feeling great about it.
Another kind of action you'll definitely want to take is inspired action - that is when you feel you are being nudged to do something specific by the universe. For example, you might suddenly feel inspired to call a friend you haven't spoken to in a while, or take a different route home from work one day, or send away for information on a particular career option - and it will be exactly the right move to open up a new world of possibility for you.
It's hard to give examples of inspired actions because the actions themselves might seem inconsequential - but you'll always know because you'll just "feel" that you should do something specific. When you get that feeling, definitely follow through with it! More often than not it will lead you to something great.
