Taking the Initiative for 7 Days…

In Homework, Study Group on March 18, 2009 at 10:23 pm

Okay, your homework for this week is to take 7 positive steps towards the life you wish to be living. What you have to do is simply do 1 proactive thing per day that represents a move toward leading and living a better life.

What you do is completely up to you, but whatever you do, it should represent your highest ideal, deepest commitment or stretch you in a new way.

Step 1 – Choose a goal that is worthy of you. I.e. No “majoring in the minor leagues”.

Step 2 – Do something tangible toward achieving ( and living ) that goal. Complete this task today. I.e. Write to a newspaper about a project that you are running, etc.

Step 3 – Write down what you did. And write down your observations, your thoughts and feelings about doing that thing.

Step 4 – Do this everyday for 7 days. ( Bring your homework to class, we’ll be discussing your list.)

    Day 1. I got off my butt and contacted Living Now and now have an article being published in next months magazine. This is confirmed. -Also contacted a yoga studio to hold an exhibition……

    Day 2. Took a deep breath and walked into a retail shop and asked if they would like to buy our prints and retail them – The out come YES! Now I need to follow up. Had lunch with my boss from Endota day spa – who also works in head office. Arranged and confirmed a charity dinner with profits going to my non profit organization… yippeeeeee and arranged for myself to launch a volunteer program at their next major annual conference which is in Melbourne, May 4th and 5th of this year.

    Day 3. Had reply from a yoga studio (*day one) and am having an exhibit on the 4th of April – TWO Weeks away!!!!!!!! Emailed a teacher from the US and invited him to teach a level two module in Nepal next year.
