I was recently lucky enough to watch the incredible acts performed in Cirque de Symphonie. I was in awe of some of the performances and what people were able to do with their bodies and their apparatus. It reminded me that anything is possible.
Sometimes, life overwhelms us and the dreams we have disappear in the turbulence of unpredictable events. How do we manage our way through the rough terrain and get back onto the road to complete our journey? There is no simple answer to this and everyone’s situation is different. However, here are some tips which may help:
- Keep reminding yourself of your dream – concentrate on how you want to “be” and not only what you want to “do”. Make it visible in some way.
- Break your overall goal into small chunks – it makes it easier to visualise success and create an action plan.
- Decide on your next small step – and then take it.
- Reflect daily –
i. What went well? Affirm yourself and appreciate all the small wins.
ii. What didn’t go well? Forgive yourself and decide what should be done differently.
Not everything goes according to plan. The important thing is to focus on what you want and practice, practice, practice.
