[Something Personal] – Stop the Unhappiness and Change Your Life!


plan-focus-actionThis is an e-mail message I wrote to my e-mail subscribers… After sending it out, many people responded…I made many people cry, they followed what I said to them, and finally started taking action. ┬áThe reason I am posting this today is in hopes that it will help you as well… So here goes my e-mail…

I felt compelled to write this to you today… I truly hope it helps you out…(I know it is a bit long…but I hope you will enjoy it…)

It does not matter how successful you are or if you are struggling I hope this e-mail will change some things for you…

As we are coming toward middle of the year, I am taking time and reflecting on my goals/plans for this year… I am happy to inform that what I set out to do for this year, is actually coming together very well. BUT I have to say…the combination of Planning, FOCUS, and ACTION is what is making it happen…(well probably – little out of the box thinking as well :-))

You see… last year around this time… I was not happy with my life in general. I’ve gone through terrible divorce, got sick and have to raise two of my babies on my own….The worse yet… My internet business was not giving me the joy at all… (I personally love business and have been self employed since I turned 21!)

It seemed I hit road block in every avenue of my life… I kind of felt lost without clear direction… the worst thing… FRUSTRATION…

TERRIBLE position to be in and I think every single person out there goes through this phase at some point in their life…

I’ve spent a lot of time analyzing my life (good and the bed) and started to accept that some things just happen and we have to accept it and move on…

Once I made piece with my self, I’ve started to analyze what I love about my business and what I don’t love (and in the middle of the chaos I’ve decided to turn things around in real sense (upside down)) – Sometimes, that is just what needs to be done…

But I promised myself at that time, that I will take time and reflect on everything I do, just to make sure I am on the right path…So every 3 months I look over my goals and plans… and adjust as needed…

Now…at the beginning of this year, on January 1st I shut down all cell phones, all the distractions, opened my laptop, CLOSED my eyes (really closed them) and started writing…

Without any order really, I wrote about how I want my life to be…what I wanted to do this year… I shut down my eyes and wrote away…About my kids…about trips we were to take…about my business… concentrating on enjoyment in every area of my life…

As I am looking over what I wrote…it is amazing how things can change if you focus your actions on all the positive…

So if you are not happy about your personal life…If you need change in any area…Put down on paper – how you want it to look like…and go about making those changes…;-)

Take care…
