The best thing you can do when you are in a rut is to talk about it and take the first step in getting out of it. So that’s just what I did. I put it out there and let everyone know I’m trying to change and I’m looking for some guidance or suggestions on ways to get this Bandit back on the right road to happiness.
My last post titled “An Honest Call For Help” was a very embarrassing post, but after getting a ton of awesome feedback and support, I am so glad that I posted it.
At the end of my post I describe my need for a personal life coach of some type. Someone who could evaluate my lifestyle, understand where I am going and help me get there. Well guess what? I found my life coach or should I say life coaches…It’s all of you!
I don’t need a paid professional who follows some formula or guide that works with the average person. I just need to stay focused, set goals and when I need guidance or support I need not go anywhere but here…the interwebs y’all. We all struggle everyday with so many challenges and most of these challenges can easily be fixed or even avoided if we just step out of our bubbles and communicate with those around us who care to listen.
I’m now just realizing this, better late than never right? I have distanced myself from my original family and friends, taken on a whole new lifestyle and with these changes comes new possibilities…if I realize them. Its all about perspectives and mine have changed so much over the last two years its mind boggling.
I see every new person I meet on the road as not just a new friend but a new family member to me. It’s a beautiful feeling when I realize how lucky I am to have met so many awesome and caring people so far on my travels.
Now with this ever growing list of friends and family comes the responsibility to treat them with love and respect and know that its not just me on this journey anymore but all of you as well…you digg?
Some believe in religion, others in science and this Road Bandit believes in everything and everyone. Its all possible when you get your heart and mind right. So now its time to take the next step in bringing you all in on this crazy journey of life with me.
After I posted my last post I was listening to Anthony Robbins and went through a goal setting exercise to layout a plan to get myself back on track. Now Mr. Robbins explains that so many people don’t realize the power of setting goals. They also don’t realize the power of not just thinking about them in your head but taking action and writing them down on paper. Write it down and already you’ve taken the first step towards success.
Well I’m ready to take another step and share with you my personal goals for the next 12 months.
These goals are broken down into three main categories: Personal Development, Thing Goals and Economic Goals. For each category you write for five minutes on all the things you want to achieve in that area and when you would like to achieve it by and why you are committed to achieving that goal. For Example: Personal Development – I want to lose 20 pounds- within a year- and I am committed to achieving this goal to experience more energy and confidence in myself.
There is a power in sharing with the world your goals and ambitions and the Law Of Attraction is always working and the more energy you put out into the world, the more you will receive in so many ways, shapes and forms.
