I Wish I Could….

How often do you hear yourself say that? “I wish I had……”, “I wish I could…..”

Isn’t it time you started to put these things into action?

What is it that is actually stopping you?

I find myself doing it so often. Sometimes its about big things, my long term goals and tackling them means lots of goal planning, breaking it down into baby steps, action plans etc. But at least I can make a start, take a step in the right direction.

But its those little ones that are most troublesome. The things like, I wish I spent more time with my friends, I wish my house was tidier…. It’s a bit of a no-brainer really. If I spent less time wondering why my house wasn’t tidy and more time actually keeping it tidy I wouldn’t have so much negative energy around it. And is for seeing more of my friends, well that’s only a text or a phone call away isn’t it?

So here it is. The next time you find yourself saying “I wish I…..” run through the following three steps and take some action.

1 Analyse it, is it in your control? If not let go of the negative feelings around it and move on or it will continue to have a negative effect on you.
2 Is it too big a step? Take some time out to plan it and work out if its realistic to tackle, break it into baby steps and start taking some small steps towards your end goal.
3 Is it easy to build into life? Then stop wishing and just get on with it and do it.
