90 day challenge to implement change

While driving the other day I thought about all the changes “I say” I want to make in my life. It was at that moment when I realized I needed to do more than add lip service. I needed to take immediate action if I wanted any amount of change to occur. But at the same time I knew I had to be honest with myself. You see, I am a good starter of things but at times when I tend to grow bored, I will jump on to the next big interest. So I have vowed to make a change, to make a commitment to myself to implement the knowledge I have obtained over the years from reading my many self-help books. It is a known fact that knowledge is power only when that knowledge is implemented. Now it is time to take action!

In my desire to take action is when I arrived at the idea of giving myself a challenge, a 90 day challenge to implement change into my life.

I wanted to give myself purpose and a reason to continue to follow through. Yes I have challenged myself in other ways such as partnering with a friend for accountability but this time I wanted to make it interesting. After going over several options I finally arrived at one option that would totally take me outside of my comfort zone, which is another reason I wanted to implement change. That option was to not only journal my process but to film a video as well. But hold on, not only to film a video but to post it to YouTube, daily.

Am I crazy?

Hmmm…well maybe just a little bit but I wanted to do something that was totally not normal for me hence the reason for making the 90 day challenge in the first place.

I knew if I made it a public challenge and I posted for everyone to view I had to follow through and it would serve as my daily purpose. I don’t know about you but I have found that my mind functions better when I have given myself a purpose. No, I am not focusing on a particular goal but it is the process I am after at this point. Yes I have a goal to complete the challenge of course but in this case it is the process of making permanent changes I want to implement into my life I am really after.

There is another reason I wanted to challenge myself to change, I have decided I am going to take my retirement. But in the process of taking my retirement I knew I needed something else do daily. I knew I did not want to take another “job” that I had to report to but I wanted to incorporate myself into the home business community. For me to do that successfully I knew I had to change some natural habits and the best way for me complete the mind shift was to challenge myself. This daily mind shift will give me a daily purpose and allow me to become more productive.

second lifeI am really excited about the new changes I will be incorporating into my life. It is like I am starting a new chapter, adding a new phase to my life, the next phase, the next phase where the focus is on me and not my now grown children.

A 90 day challenge to implement change into my life is just what I need at this time.

My family is very supportive and excited as well.

But of course I don’t want to be the only one excited about change; I want to invite you on my journey to join me to make changes to your own life. No I don’t expect you do anything as extreme as make a video but you are welcome to tag along with me and leave me your comments of changes you are incorporating into your life as well. I welcome the company and look forward to reading your comments and celebrating small implements of change into your life.do you accept the challenge pic courtesy of memegenerator.net

I have already started my challenge. I have posted my first video early this morning. And so it begins…..

About nextphasemom

I am a married mother of 2 college age children. Now that my children are grown attending college and working I find myself lost and wondering what to do with myself. In my loneliness I thought I would do what I love and that is write. Now that I am at retirement status I look forward to creating the next phase of my life. To start I am expressing myself through writing. It has always been relaxing for me so I thought I would share some of my thoughts. I am also a self-help fanatic and I try to live an inspired life daily. On occasion I am able to encourage and inspire those around me in a no nonsense way. For those that know me know that when you ask me for my opinion that you will get "the truth"; they know that if you don't want "the truth" don't ask me. No....I am not rude or abusive. I just point out ideas or points of interest that they have not considered or don't want to accept. A lot of my friends call me "the counselor". No..I am not a certified professional counselor but I love psychology. My degree background is business and I am employed in Customer Service. So talking to people on a regular basis is what I do to assist them in finding solutions. Well that is enough about me for now....to be continued because I am ever changing. Take your time to look around and please leave a comment so I will know that you stopped by...until then.
