You have learned you can get the extra personal energy to follow through on your plans by regular exercise, a balanced diet, and a positive mental diet. Creating momentum by linking each day’s activities together puts the laws of physics to work for you. A lack of money or time and the possibility of discomfort will not deter you because you are a barrier breaker.
Think back to your dream job and imagine the person in that job. What was their level of physical health? Did they have the body of your dreams as well as your dream job? Now think of your physical health. What is your level of physical health at this moment? What areas do you want to improve? Are there areas you think it is urgent for you to change such as: weight, blood pressure, physical strength, energy level or overall fitness? Put your energies into developing a balanced and realistic exercise plan that motivates and inspires you to keep moving forward. Take time now to re-examine your “Exercise, Recreation, and Social Activities Plan” at the end of Chapter 5 and strengthen your exercise plan to improve specific areas of your physical health.
To succeed in your dream job and in your new life, you must develop your mind. A healthy and creative mind has many tools and knowledge about a variety of subjects. What new skill would you like to learn that has nothing to do with your current occupation, your dream job, or your past addiction? Do you want to learn another language? Or . . . ?
Again, thinking of that person at work in your dream job, what mental talents and skills do they possess that have nothing to do with their chosen occupation? What personal relationships do they have? Where do they live? Examine where you are at in your life compared to that person in your dream job and where you want to be. Add goals to the appropriate section in your “Life Plan and Goals for Next Year Worksheet,” at the end of Chapter 9.
