The $1million question there! Well, the best place to start is to take a closer look at what you do and don't love in your world today. A quick one-two week audit of how you're spending your time and what lights you up, and what sucks the life outta you, is the best place to start.
Here's how - print off this chart below, the one with soul suck and soul shine, keep it with you or next to your bed, and then at the end of every day (or as you go), write down at the 'soul shine' end, all the moments that made you feel fired up, excited, happy, pumped, in the zone, excited and all those other awesome emotions. Include what made you feel grateful, content, calm, satisfied, at peace, proud too.
Move it down and in the middle, note those things that were 'alright' and 'pretty good' and note down all the 'uggghhhh' stuff too, the 'soul suck' stuff - what made you feel flat, worn out, frustrated, and make sure you include all the things you avoided too.
Hit print, and get cracking, let's see what appears for you in a week or two!
“I could not, at any age, be content to take my place by the fireside and simply look on. Life was meant to be lived. Curiosity must be kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn one's back on life.”
– Eleanor Roosevelt
“Whatever you do, be different – that was the advice my mother gave me, and I can’t think of better advice for an entrepreneur. If you’re different, you will stand out.”
– Anita Roddick
