Shift Your Habits
Blog post #3 of #SHIFTYOURHABITS By Dace pavloviča
As we all know – often things in our lives are not going as planned in the very beginning. And it is easy to get distracted from what is important for you. You can lose your focus, your persistence, your motivation. And even your inspiration - when you start your own path toward your dreams.
Therefore it’s very important to know your deepest “why”. Why do you want to achieve what you are going to achieve? What is the main reason?
What is standing behind your wish, your dream? Which is your deepest motive?
Let’s start at the very beginning.
Take a white sheet and divide it vertically in two sections.
On the left side write down things that are not serving good in your life anymore and you want to stop or eliminate them. Activities, life situations, maybe even people who treat you really bad.
On the right side write down the things which you would like to achieve and experience in your life. Your dreams, your wishes, your desires.
Look at the left side. Reread those things. And stop doing them. Eliminate them from your life as soon as possible. Don’t spend your time, energy, efforts. Simply leave it to the past. It didn’t serve you good previously. It will not serve you good in the future! And you are the one who can change it. Just you. Nobody else can take this decision for you.
(You definitely know this truth already - by doing the same things again and again you will never experience the different results. The results will always also be the same.)
And now - FOCUS ON THE RIGHT SIDE of your list. Read your list of your dreams, wishes and desires. Pick up the ONE – what is the most important desire (dream) for you at this moment.
Why is it important to choose just one? When you put all your attention and focus just on something one, you can find the answer and opportunities to achieve it much easier. As you don’t have to divide your attention on several different things. And switching between them always takes time. It will simplify the whole process. Pick up just one, the more important thing for you.
And try to find your “why”. Why is it important for you to achieve it? What Is your deepest motive? What stands behind your dream and your wish.
Find the silent place and let your answer flow from your heart and your soul. You can use meditation. Just ask yourself this question: "Why it is important for me?" And do let the answer come. All answers about anything is living inside of us. All what is necessary - just to be ready to hear them.
Don’t try to get that answer from your mind. Don’t overthink. Let answer freely come. Try to be in relaxed state. Don’t make pressure on yourself. Let your feelings and emotions flow. In order for you to become aware of your deepest “why”
You can also use such method to find the deepest “why” for your desire, your dream
1. The question: Why it is important for me to do/ achieve/accomplish ….. /put your dream here/
1. The answer:…
2. The question: Why is it important for me to …. (take the previous answer and make it in question form)
2. The answer: ...
And so on. Each question always starts with the same phrase "Why is it important for me to ....."?
Keep doing so until you get to the 7th question. Until you get to the 7th question and the 7th answer to it. It will be your deepest "why". Your deepest reason why it is so important to achieve that dream.
FOR EXAMPLE (technique 2)
For better preview and understanding, I will share some sample with you.
Let’s say your dream is to become the writer.
1. question: Why is it so important for me to become a writer?
1. answer: Because I want inspire people worldwide to follow their dreams.
2. question: Why is it so important for me to inspire people worldwide to follow their dreams?
2. answer: Because I want to make this world the better place for everyone.
3.question: Why is it so important for me to make this world the better place for everyone?
3. answer: …
4.question: Why is it so important for me ...
5.question: Why is it so important for me ...
6.question: Why is it so important for me ...
7.question: Why is it so important for me ...
7. ANSWER (your deepest "why"): ....
This 7th will be the answer from your heart and your soul. Your deepest “why”.
Knowing your deepest “why” will not allow you to give up when things will be going differently as you have planned!!! Put it in some visible place for you. Your deepest "why". Where you can see it all the time. Or you can set reminder in your phone. About your deepest "why".
All what you need, just to keep into your mind – your “why”. What is the reason for you doing this? What is the main reason (deepest) for you to implement your dream? Knowing your "why" will help to overcome you any challenges you will experience during your dream implementation path no matter how big the challenges will be.
Simply KNOW YOUR "WHY". It is your anchor. Strong basement for your dream.
