Lesson 7: Gratitude and Planning Session and the Five Steps to Living an Inspiring Life

At the end of each week, I encourage you to have a special Gratitude and Planning Session.  This practice gives you a regular opportunity to acknowledge and appreciate the progress you are making.  It also helps you see where you may be getting stuck and helps you focus on developing a plan for addressing whatever issues may be keeping you from moving forward.  And it helps keep you focused on your goal and the next steps to take to achieve it. 

Begin this session by reading your inspiring goal statement out loud.  Then, take some time to do each of the following steps:

Step One: Acknowledge and celebrate your progress. 

Write down all the things you accomplished over the past week.  Include all the steps you’ve taken toward achieving your goal, however small or large.  Also include all the internal steps you’ve taken toward your goal: these include the four steps of the Your Inspiring Life program: Affirm, Clear, Envision, and Center.  Don’t minimize the value of these actions, they are an essential part of your journey and they will really help you succeed at your inspiring goal.  Look over your list and let yourself feel how happy and proud of yourself you are that you have accomplished so much. 

 Now, say the following statement from the Your Inspiring Life eBook out loud to yourself:

I really have taken steps toward my goal this week, internal and external.  I am making progress toward feeling inspired in my life and achieving my goal and that feels good.  I am celebrating my success.  I’m doing great.  I’m following my path.  I love and honor myself for the person I am.  I’m doing a great job.  And I am grateful that success at my inspiring goal is getting closer with each step I take.

Step Two: Create your Game Plan for the coming week.  

Look over your Game Plan and make any changes or additions that might be needed.  Then, set some short-terms goals for the coming week.  Be sure to include internal goals (Affirm, Clear, Envision, Center) and external goals: the concrete actions you’ll take to get closer to accomplishing your inspiring goal.  

For extra help with this step:

The Your Inspiring Life full program includes a guided visualization recording that helps you really feel gratitude for who you are and all that you have accomplished.  It takes you to a beautiful garden where you give and receive gratitude in a circle of wonderful people who love and support you in achieving your inspiring goal.  And of course, the eBook guides you through every step of the Gratitude and Planning Session.  

It is so worth doing this Gratitude and Planning Session on a regular basis.  It will help you feel good on every step of the journey of creating a life that inspires and fulfills you. 

How to Live an Inspiring Life Each Day

If you’ve been following each step of this seven day eCourse, you’ve come a long way.  You’ve discovered a wonderful goal that really inspires you.  You’ve uncovered some of the key issues that have been holding you back up to now and you’ve begun letting them go with EFT.  You have created a wonderful vision of having accomplished your inspiring goal.  And you’ve begun to connect with that wonderful source of unconditional well-being within you. 

Now, all you need to do is follow these five simple steps each day to help you stay focused and enthusiastic as you take action toward your inspiring goal:

Affirm:  State your inspiring goal out loud to yourself
Clear:  Use EFT to let go of negative beliefs as they arise
Envision:  Imagine the wonderful details of succeeding at your goal 
Center:  Connect with the source of unconditional well-being within you
Act:  Take inspired action to achieve your goal 

Not counting the external action you take toward your goal in Step Five, the above steps should take you about twenty minutes to complete.  And you will feel wonderful at the end of it, refreshed and revitalized and ready to move forward toward your inspiring goal.  Of course, if you can only do one step a day, do that.  It will all help you move forward toward the inspiring life you want to live.  Do these five steps for twenty-one days, and you will have developed a positive, powerful, habit that has the potential to truly change your life.
