20- Create your Life Plan

The upcoming topic is Perception.

This week I am going to do one post instead of breaking it down into the normal 2 posts.  The topic and fieldwork will work better if you have the whole week to work on things at your own pace.  This topic piggybacks on last weeks topic- Where are you going?  By knowing where you are going, you can begin to set your goals and create the life you want.  If we break things down into smaller categories, it may be easier for you to get a clear picture of how you want each part of your life to look.

A life plan is your interpretation of what you want to achieve in all of the different areas of your life.  From finances to career to family, I want you to evaluate what your vision is for these different areas and then create the path you will take to accomplish this vision.  It is great to go back and revisit this as things change and keep it up to date so you know where you are headed and what you have accomplished.

Physical Health
Mental Health/Character
Love Life
Emotional Well-being
Spiritual Life
Overall Life
Any other aspect not included that is important to you

Go through the categories listed above and make a list and answer the following questions for each item.
- What are your main goals or what is your vision?
- What is your motivation behind these goals or why do you want to achieve these goals? 
- What is your plan or what smaller steps do you need to take to achieve your main objective?
Here is an example to get you started:
 Physical Health-
- My main goals are to be healthy and fit.
- I want to be healthy and fit because it makes me feel better and it makes my quality of life better.  Exercise helps me relieve stress and cope with my life in a more effective manner.
- My plan is to eat better and exercise regularly.  I will go to the gym 5 days this week and I will eat more fruits and veggies and less processed food.

Remember to be true to you and what you want from your life.  We are each different and unique and this is your opportunity to think about the things that are most important to you.  I hope this plan helps each of you achieve more than you ever thought was possible!
Either journal about these topics or spend some time thinking through the answers.
- How will it help for you to have a life plan?
- What benefits do you think you will see?
- What are your main goals in life?
- What life will you create for yourself?
- How will it feel when you accomplish your goals and create the life of your dreams?
- How can you enjoy the process while creating this life for yourself?

Bonus Challenge:
Set one goal for each of the categories listed in this weeks blog and accomplish those goals!

Maria Robinson- Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.
Byrd Baggett- Look at life through the windshield, not the rearview mirror.
Enjoy the journey!
