Founder’s Corner #21 A Framework for Shifting Your Life and Creating Your Future

Today, I want to take a look at a different angle when it comes to year planning. Rather waiting for things to unfold or just “happen”, today I want to share my simple framework for shifting your life and creating your future. I want to share with you the realization I’ve recently come to that I’ve got to take back the reigns and live intentionly…

But first…

Now, let’s dive into today’s post!

It’s the Time for Shifting Your Life and Creating Your Future!

Continuing on the popular trend of what’s “in” and what’s “out” for 2024, this year something that is an absolute “in” is the concept of creating my own future.

Here’s the truth…

If you don’t take back the reigns of your own narrative and become the author of your own story, then others will dictate it for you.

So what does that mean exactly?

Well, a lot of times, without even knowing it, we let life simply happen to us. 

  • We go with the flow on social plans.
  • We do the tasks we’ve been assigned at work. 
  • We attend the events others want to go to.

And before you know it, you’ve got a whole year filled with things you didn’t necessarily set out to do.

This year I’ve decided to focus instead on living intentionally – when it comes to where I spend my time, the healthy boundaries I put in place, and even who takes up the majority of my precious time. 

You need to start being the driving force behind what your life looks like so that you can anticipate what is to come.

After all, the best way to predict your future, is to create it! 

Let’s look at my simple framework for shifting your life and creating your future.

1. Put It On Pause 

Every single day we spend so much time simply reacting to what is going on around us — your phone, your kiddos, your job, you name it! 
So, stop. Put it on pause. 

Hold up a second, and just take a little time for yourself. Time that isn’t just reactive to the endless noise that surrounds your daily life. Take some real time to just be by yourself, free from distractions, and focus on what you want your life to look like.
Now answer some questions: What’s really important to you? What are you truly passionate about? What are you exceptional at? What is your purpose in life?

2. Think Big, Get Focused 

When you’re creating your future, it is not the time to hold back. 

Let go, and think BIG! 

What are you capable of when you reach for your maximum potential? Just think about what you can accomplish if you bring your whole self to the table. 

“If you aim high, your success will be monumental.” – Michael Annese

Now, once you’ve got a clear idea of what is important to you and what you are capable of, it’s time to get focused. See your vision, imagine it being done, and think about the possibilities!

3. Make a Move! 

It’s time to take ACTION!

Just take a small step towards the future you want to create. And then, prove to yourself that you are committed to making your vision a reality.

Accept nothing less than your personal best, and serve yourself a taste of your new future, a taste of what is to come.

A Final Word on Shifting Your Life and Creating Your Future!

What you do with your time matters. It shapes what is to come. So make every minute count! 

Your life, your vision…Make it happen!
