Part of my process to re-discover my “original instructions”, was to create a list of life “principles” that help me navigate my world. Here are my current top three principles:
- I know where I’m going.
- I am responsible for getting my needs met.
- I take action, everyday in my life.
The first gives me direction and motivation. The second keeps me from collapsing when faced with adversity. Lastly, by taking action, I bring the intention of the first two principles into fruition.
I turn 50 in December, so I am re-defining my life and my work. These principles are powerful ways to keep me centered, on-track and authentic.
Note: I used the word “current” to reflect that these three principles are critical to where I am in my life right now. Life is fluid, these principles will change as I change.
