You want to know what I think? I believe too many of you are trying too hard, doing too much and not achieving what you really want anyway! You are not achieving because there are too many things in the way: unnecessary obligations at work, at home, with friends.

You burn out by holding on to too much information. 
You alter the way you live your life to accommodate others’ needs before your own. Holding on too hard will wear you out. 
In order to live your life instead of someone else’s you have to reinvent the way you live it.

Reinvent yourself and your life. 

You can transform your life from what you have been to what you desire. 
Transformation will allow you to be who you want to be. Transformation will alter your outlook on yourself and others. Transformation will help make all things possible.

Strengthen your intention.

Just know that you can reinvent the way you live your life now and create the life you really want. All you have to do is practice the Three Steps once a day, once a week, or even once a month; just do it. You have already taken the first step; you have decided to take back your life. What follows is a sequence that can strengthen your intention.

First, stop what no longer works in order to make room to create what you want.

Second, start to take care of yourself in a way you have never done before.

Third, create your desire, what is most important to you and then, your fulfilling life.

All you need to create the life you want is the willingness to make yourself the priority in your life. So, go out and get a notebook, grab a pen and let’s get going.

1, 2, 3 – RED LIGHTS STOP ME

What are the Red Lights in your life? What is stopping you from living the life you want?

Clues:
1.You find yourself too tired to get out of bed.

2.You find yourself drinking loads of coffee just to get going in the morning.

3.You find yourself angry with everyone – a lot.

4.The idea of you having any fun and relaxation makes you laugh hysterically.

5.You are gaining weight.

6.You are losing weight.

7.You start the day unhappy and depressed.

8.You find yourself complaining all the time.

9.Your kids walk quietly around the house- a new thing.

10.Your spouse/partner is in hiding.

11.Your children, friends and peers are avoiding you.

12.You take care of others instead of yourself.

Take out a piece of paper and start making a list of your own RED LIGHTS. 

Remember, in order to reinvent yourself, in order to create the life you really, really want, you need to get rid of what you don’t want, what doesn’t work for you, in order to create the space to do what sparks your spirit.
