Anyone else a fan of the Musical Hamilton? This is a favorite in the Prell household, particularly of 9 year-old-Liam. And, our f-a-v-o-r-i-t-e character is the king. In the number “What Comes Next?”, he asks newly liberated America what they are going to do now that they are free. What a simple but profound question. You've reached a goal, so, what comes next?
The end of March is quickly approaching. This coincides with a quarter of 2021 gone, poof, finished! Which leads us to wondering a few things, DreamChaser. What have you accomplished in the first 3 months of the year? Are you on track? If you hit some goals, what comes next? Or, have you derailed and are ready to start again?
No matter where you are in the process, this is a good time to take a quick assessment. Celebrate your wins and ask yourself, what worked? Be grateful for the struggles and failures and ask yourself, what can I learn? Look at your accomplishments and ask yourself, what comes next? How can I grow and stretch? Take this information and reset for the next quarter!
Your Inspiration Catalysts are here to guide you through making the most of this year. We have already touched on important concepts like mindset, core values, goals, and strategies to get you on the path to your best life. These topics are crucial pieces to learn to really knock this life out of the water, to get those goals and dreams, to live an inspired and purpose-driven life. And, we also realize these topics get deep and can be overwhelming; your Inspiration Catalysts have been at this personal growth thing a long time (and, we are still works in progress! That’s the beauty of personal growth and development!). Follow along each week as we break these topics down into bite-sized pieces to make it easier to grasp them and incorporate them, with tips and tricks learned from the trenches to help you succeed.
You see, it’s crucial to understand AND apply these topics into your life. Learning and understanding mean nothing if action isn’t taken. I hate to break it to you but there is no shortcut on this path of turning those dreams into reality. It takes tenacity, grit, determination, patience, and a willingness to try. It takes a “rubber butt” mentality...that you will most likely fall on your butt, so what? That’s part of the process. When you have a “rubber butt” mentality, you bounce back up and try again. We want to guide you through the process by showing you where to start and how to do it while supporting and encouraging you along the way.
What Comes Next?
How about reconnecting with that woman you lost along the way?
How about dusting off those goals and dreams that are on your heart?
How about finding your why and purpose in life?
How about upgrading old habits to those that serve you better?
How about shedding the negativity and stepping into the positive and possible?
That’s what CAN come next...you just need to be bold enough to try, accept that faltering and failure is an anticipated part of the process, and join in the fun, inspired, intentional journey that is about to unfold! That’s what SoulShine Life Connections was created to do; connect you with your soul, or self, so you can shine. So, who’s ready to learn what it really means when we say, “Shine on!”?!?
P.S. Here’s last month’s recap, in case you are excited to start! Rather listen? The SoulShining blogcast (audio version of our twice weekly blogs) are available on Spotify and Apple podcasts!
