So last week I decided to pop in a movie that I have not seen in awhile – – Eat, Pray, Love. What an exceptional movie, what any person would dream of doing. The whole point of Juila Robert’s trip was to find her “word”. Which, in the end, happened to be attraversiamo = “Let’s Cross Over”. What a beautiful work, the way the word rolls off the tongue, but what a even more beautiful meaning. Think about it… Let’s Cross Over.. Let’s Cross Over. What does that phrase mean to you?
After repeating it over and over, because it sounds so amazing, I realized, to me, it means to over come your fears, realize who you are, what you are meant to do and to take that leap of faith. Believe that there is purpose. So besides inspirational phrases, I really wanted to apply this word. I have dreams, visions for my business, so why not make those dreams come true.
I must be honest, I am the type that is comfortable with how things are and am not one for change, but also have noticed when change occurs I am very pleased. So, I need to look at my goals and make those goals come true. I want to write down one thing a day that I want to accomplish, if it is for the business, my wedding, or just personally. The next morning, sit in peace and quiet, not turn on the computer, keep my phone on silent, and just listen for that motivation. I do get nervous, with how busy my days are, how can I add another “to-do?” I guess that is why they call it motivation, setting goals and sticking with it, but I must have discipline in order to cross over.
How do you stay focused? Are there things you do to help you accomplish your goals? I would LOVE to hear them! Post your comment below…. what is your word?
