I started on a motivational journey yesterday, a Tuesday. The thought for the day – is how to attract what I want into my life . Meaning at first, I need to make a manifesto, a list, of what I want for my life. This is step 1.
Step 1 : What do I want to do with my life ?
The answer is simple, I want to be famous, I want people to know me as a good person. I want people to say she’s a good worker, a simple soul, a friend in need, one they can rely on in trouble. I want to teach people good things, things forgotten in the mad rush of life, to teach people there is a lot of good in the world. If possible, stop wars, quarrels, fights.
So I want to do great things for the betterment of humanity.
Now let us look at step 2.
Step 2 : Be calm. Take a deep breath. Spend some time on myself – say 15 minutes for a start. Use this to remove all thoughts from my mind. I could meditate or pray. I could even sleep for a bit- or go into a trance like state. The idea is to clear clutter from my mind and indeed it is filled with clutter. Thoughts of things not done, things that could have been differently, words uttered unnecessarily, time wasted etc..,. So I need to create a quiet corner for myself in my house. Yes, found it. It is on the sofa in the corner. Lying there I pray, close my eyes and try to meditate on positive thoughts, all the while quietly clearing up the recycle bin of my mind, so that the negative thoughts do not come back. It is difficult because, a soon as I close my eyes, i start day dreaming. Anyway, I manage to control my thoughts for a small period of time. I had a short nap too.
When I woke up, I felt rejuvenated, ready to take on the world.My desires are deeply ingrained in my mind, at least for today.
The next step is what joins my inner desire with my physical self – that is an action to bring my dreams to fulfillment.
Now how do I do that ?
I have some skills, like writing, plenty of love and time to give myself and others. So I need to make an action bullet list to see what I can do – immediately and in the future .
Action points :
1. Start reading. Read more about writing, research, ethics, morality, life, self control, motivation etc..- all values I want to instill in myself before I start changing the world
2. Start learning : From my readings, I need to learn things I can take forward with me in my life- like knowledge and how to apply it to my life
3. Start writing : Reading and knowledge would lead on to writing. Because writing is an expression of my inner soul. It is a way to connect my inner self with the outside world.
Effectively, it means to achieve my desire of being famous, I need to get a clear space in my brain and fill it with positive thoughts that would lead me down the paved road of giving to people what I have freely received- knowledge. In the process, as a fallout, I might become famous- who knows ?
