LoveGram: Who do you want to be today?09-26-2022
Hey there, beautiful friend!
Today I send you a double rainbow.
I send you a four-leaf clover right there, where you are about to step.
I send you a tiny bug, inching its way across the sidewalk, doing its best to get where it wants to go.
Welcome to your Sunday audio LoveGram.
In today’s LoveGram, I share a very simple practice with you that you can do in the morning —or any time at all— to help you remember who you want to be in the world.
You will love this tiny tool!
(To listen to the audio, just click over to this page, scroll down, and hit “play” on the audio player.)
This practice is deceptively simple.
If you try it, you will feel a big impact from just a little bit of “work.”
[Spoiler alert]I know that some of you may prefer to read rather than listen. So, I’m gonna give you the nuts and bolts right here.
What you want to do right after you’ve awoken in the morning — while you are having your tea, when you are out on your run, while you are in the shower, while you are simply sitting watching the morning begin, or whatever — is to take a few minutes to think about all the things you have on your plate for the day.
THEN … ask yourself this question: “Who do I want to be?”
Do this for every activity on your schedule.
- Who do I want to be when I have that Zoom call with my work?
- Who do I want to be when I have lunch with my sister?
- Who do I want to be when my kids come home from school?
- Who do I want to be when I have that challenging conversation I’ve been dreading?
My mentor, Brendon Burchard, suggested you assign three specific words to how you want to feel. If you have a meeting with your boss, maybe you want to be confident, collaborative, and open.
For that difficult conversation I mentioned up above, maybe you want to be brave, honest, and loving.
When you are with your children, after dinner, perhaps you want to playful, open, and present?
Or, as they used to say at the end of Looney Tunes, the-the-that’s all folks!
If you want to hear a more in-depth explanation of why this is so powerful, listen to your audio LoveGram now!
Thank you, as always, for being here. I love sharing life with you.
I know you. I see your generous heart.
I know you want to bring more life into your life.
I applaud you for being this kind of person. The people in your life love you for this, too.
Be willing to step out of the same-ole, same-ole and live into who and how you want to be.
You will be so happy that you did!
I can’t wait to hear how it goes.
Seek celebration — even in dark corners,
