Once I asked myself the question “Megan, are you being ungrateful in any area of your life? I was prompted to truly observe the things that I had access to yet wasn’t valuing. What I realized has blown my mind and caused me to make a serious shift in the way in which I approach my life. The overall and general answer was, time.
Now, I can be honest and say that I am not proud of the things I will divulge here in this blog. I do however want to be honest and transparent in hopes that it may help you to make a shift towards your highest version.
So, I began to analyze my day to day actions/interactions and leveraged them against my “procrastination list” (which, by the way, it’s a GREAT IDEA to make a procrastination list of all the things you “need to get done” but have not yet…) When I took a look at my list of things that need to be done, I was almost embarrassed at how relatively easy the tasks were on my list. When I contemplated why I didn’t do them yet, my mind said “I don’t have time”…. Really? REALLY?!
Yet, when I look at how my time is being spent, I have literally spent HOURS on social media some days. Yes, I run my business primarily on social media, however one of my goals is to create my OWN space for my clients where I can still connect and offer value to them even if social media were to ever go away. Sooooo, basically I am subconscious sabotaging myself. But why? What is it in me that knows I need to be consistent and intention with my time every day yet decides to go out to lunch or go into a seemingly endless cyber hypnosis. The short answer is “it’s a self worth issue” which is pretty much the basis of anything we’re manifesting that doesn’t make us feel good. It doesn’t make me feel good to be criticizing and guilting myself about things that are looming in my mind that need to be completed.
So, since the main commodity that I found myself to be taking advantage of was time, I contemplated how I could leverage my time better. It came back to one of the very things I talk about! Mornings Matter!!! Waking up early in the morning injects a completely different energy into your day. The energy says “important, immediate, present and prompt”. Let’s face it, most people don’t like waking up early, but many of the greatest influencers and impactful people in the world swear by this one action to create a major shirt and momentum in their lives. I personally want to be a great influencer and highly impactful. I know that’s not everyone’s deal, but if you’re rocking with me and reading this email, we’ve likely already aligned in that area.
This isn’t to say that consistently waking up early will immediately change your entire life (it won’t be immediate, but it will definitely put you on a fast track to transformation). Being very mindful of how you’re spending your time is also crucial. If we can begin to notice when we are squandering time (being ungrateful for it) that could be better used making that dental appointment or taking that walk or going grocery shopping so you don’t have to waste money eating out, then we can take steps to redirect ourselves into a more appreciative frequency.
For example, I have recommitted to waking up early and going hard on my physical training. While I am exerting myself, I repeat the following words in my head “I can, I will, I have, I am”. This phrase is very useful in blocking out negative self talk about how “I don’t feel like” or “don’t want to”. What is repeated in our mind manifests, so… altogether now… I CAN, I WILL, I HAVE , I AM!!!
I hope you got something beneficial from this. Have an amazing and non procrastinative day! (Yes, I made that word up) LOL
With So Much Love,
