I’m back for one more blog. So, let’s get right to it and talk about your Rebalance Action Plan.
How has it been so far? Were you able to get some specific actions written down? Now that you have your actions identified, it’s time to do what you said you need to do to help gain your Rebalance. In essence, this is where your journey begins.
But how do you take that first (possibly scary) step?
Take a moment to review your plan. Commit to it. Your action steps should be on your calendar now, treat them like an important meeting.
You’re about to take that first step, which means a change is about to happen. This can be uncomfortable.
Visualize what success looks like when you reach your goals. How good will it feel for you to have more balance in that area of your life? This should help you take the first big step, and all the others that follow.
In my last blog I mentioned a tip about determining what support you need to implement your Rebalance Plan. Reach out to at least two people to include in your support system. Maybe one of them can be your accountability coach, someone who provides you with support and can give you an objective view of your progress against your plan. Check in with this person a couple of times a month. Start those discussions by telling them what’s new and good. Then talk about where you are in your plan and any concerns you have.
Take this seriously… but not too seriously. What I mean is that you should learn to have fun in your journey to Rebalance even when you have set backs. You should anticipate forks, detours, and roadblocks. They are a part of this beautiful life. So, plan on an outlet for fun and release. Build this into your plan so that you can take a break when fear sets in, you get frustrated, or hit that bump. When you come back, you will see things in a different light. Figure out what fun looks like you. For me living in Colorado, it’s getting out into nature whether it’s snowboarding or riding my mountain bike.
Let’s talk about those forks, detours, roadblocks, and events that contribute to a feeling of unbalance. Unexpected events will happen; things that you cannot anticipate or remotely control. You may encounter a fork in the road and there may be temptation to go the way that led you away from your vision because it looks easier. Don’t let the “easy” way to fool you. In this case, look back to your plan and don’t get distracted. You can get back on track with detours as long as you are still moving toward your vision for Rebalance. It’s okay to make adjustments to your plan as long as the actions your taking still align with where you want to be.
Check in with yourself in three months by redoing the Sphere of Life exercise, and then again in another three months. See if you’ve moved the “needle.” Make an effort and take the time to celebrate even the smallest wins. The journey to Rebalance is not a sprint, it takes time. Your more balanced Sphere is just an action plan away! Stay focused on your goal, be present in the moment, and be grateful for how far you’ve come.
Best wishes on your journey to Rebalance!
