Create Your Own Personal Playbook

30 days.  That's about how much time you need to create your own customized playbook.  It's a way for you to become your own personal life coach.  I'm still fine tuning mine and I'm sharing it here to help you get started.  One of the best recommendations I can make is for you to challenge everything.  Think of it like cleaning out your fridge –  throw out the expired, start fresh and only add things that will enhance your life.  Here goes:

Items to discard
  • Negative thoughts
  • Negative people
  • Processed foods
  • Time wasting activities
  • Bad habits
  • Anything in your life that distracts you from reaching your dreams
  • Anything you own that is more of a burden than an enhancement
  • Credit card debt
  • Anything in your closet you haven't worn in over one year
  • 10 lbs of body fat (read my archives for ideas if you need help getting started)
 Items to add
  • Positive thoughts
  • Positive people
  • Fruits, veggies, nuts, beans and seeds
  • Time for your passions
  • Good habits
  • 30 minutes a day of walking
  • 3 hours per week of exercise
  • A daily to do list with your three top priorities that you complete before you go to sleep
  • 8 hours of sleep
  • One day per week of down time to rest and recover
  • 15 minutes per day to connect with your creator
Some of you reading this may fight me about the 10 pounds of body fat because you want to release more than that from your body.  That's okay.  My point here is ten pounds is very doable.  It's a bite-size goal you can swallow.  Just concentrate on the first ten pounds for now.  Once you reach that goal, release ten more pounds.  Repeat this as many times as you need to in order to reach your target.

I have one more thought about negative people vs. positive people.  If you're trying to be politically correct about how to drop the negative people, don't fret.  They may beat you to the punch and drop you because they are uneasy in your presence.  My point here is that you shouldn't waste any time trying to chase after them if they want out.  Let them have their peace.  Once you develop a positive mind-set, the positive people in the world will naturally gravitate toward you while the negative ones will be repulsed.  Spend as much time and energy as you can with the people who make you feel good and reduce time spent with those who want to bring you down.  Have a great day.
