SURPASS YOUR DREAMS
E-Weekly Action Tip Archive
MONDAY MORNING ACTION TIP #33
Are you satisfied where you are in your career right now? Or, do you think back to the jobs you turned down, or the paths you could have taken?
The past is called the past because it refers to events that have passed. The decisions you made, or did not make, may have taught you some tough lessons, but you can use those lessons to create a better tomorrow.
Maybe the paths you took in your career were your best choices at the time. Maybe you made a bad choice here or there (it happens to all of us!) Either way, there is still time to have what you want in your career. The first step is for you to get over your past.
THE WEEKLY ACTION CHALLENGE
Your challenge this week is to forgive yourself.
Take a sheet of paper and create 3 columns. In the first column, write down every wrong turn you believe you have taken in your career. (Getting it out of your head on down on paper will be a blessing.) In the second column, write down why you took each turn. You will discover that some wrong turns were mistakes, while others were the best moves that you could make at the time. In the third column, acknowledge yourself for the good moves, and accept the bad moves by writing something positive next to each entry. This exercise is your access to forgiving yourself.
Getting stuck in the past is a waste of your time. It does not empower or serve you. Start fresh. Move forward. You work hard everyday. You deserve to be forgiven.
So, what do you say? You only have one life to live, so it might as well be a life you love!
HOW DID YOU DO?
If you followed this week's action tip, or it made a difference in your life, I would like to know. Please send your story in an email to email@example.com
Each week, one lucky individual will win a free copy of my e-book "Living a Life You Love! The Pathway to Personal Freedom" for their contribution.
Last week's winner was S. Williams who wrote in to say:
"I think your concept of surpassing your dreams website is wonderful. It is a refreshing addition to the otherwise, daily Internet ads, sales, etc. that one is bombarded with. I say this, because I surf the net, while actively seeking a career change and sometimes get frustrated.
It is your inspirational weekly tips that oftentimes keep me afloat, to remain positive! Usually, when I remember, I read over one of your tips and quickly store it into my memory bank (usually before bedtime), and somehow, the next day I find I have subconsciously applied the action. Thanks again, I appreciate it."
Congratulations to you S!
HAVE A GREAT WEEK!
