How do you feel about spending time with yourself? Do you like being alone? Do you enjoy your own company? Do you crave solitude? Have you become your own best friend? Or does the thought if it make you uncomfortable?
I often hear people say they don’t like being alone. They just can’t. Every time I hear that, I think, ‘Then that’s exactly what you need to do.’
Make time for yourself, by yourself, to really connect to your Heart & Soul & make sure you’re heading in the direction you want to go. We make a plan for a business meeting, a grocery trip, a vacation. But how many people have a plan for their life? How many people’s lives are going in the direction they want? Now I’m not talking about planning every second – that would eliminate the spontaneity of life, the being open to what comes up in each moment part of life. But a plan to make sure you’re heading in the direction you want to go in is a great tool to get you where you need to be. And of course, a To Do list. Put your goals on paper. If you want to achieve them that is 😉
A Harvard Business study revealed remarkable statistics relating to goal setting and success:
- 83% of the population does not have goals.
- 14% have a plan in mind, but are unwritten goals.
- 3% have goals written down
Being alone helped me find myself; create myself. Figure out who I am & who I want to be, without any outside influences. Many people live their lives for others; their parents, their partner, their family, their job, etc.
We need less clones & more originals 🙂
Tune into the greatness that is you – discover your gifts & share them with the world! Become your own best friend ☮💕
