Last week, one of my buddies asked me a fantastic question, what is the first step to re-training your brain?
I thought it was an easy answer. And then I realized I was incredibly wrong. DAMNNNN. How have I not written a blog post about this yet!?
So here I am about 10 days later, sharing the very first step you need to take to re-train your brain.
– LIFE AUDIT –
Have you ever done an audit? Not the kind you do at work which looks at policies or finances etc… For this audit, I want you to look at 6 main categories within your life. I want you to assess your daily routines so that you can make necessary changes for success.
Step 1 –
Grab a pen+paper, then divide the page into 6 sections. Each section gets 1 of the following headings: Family/Relationships, Work/Business, Health, Personal Development, Spiritual, Finances.
(If you want to add or replace a section that fits your life better, feel free to do so.)
Step 2 –
In each section, write down 1-3 goals that you’d like to achieve. They can be big or small; anything from mid-afternoon goals to goals that could take 1,5, or 15 years to accomplish.
Don’t worry about the details of the goal yet… just write down what the goal actually is. Go with your gut. If what comes out seems unrealistic, the next part of the audit will dissect the concrete from the exaggerated.
Step 3 –
Picture your life.
Visualize your in your mind, then scroll out like you would in google maps so you can take a look at your life through a giant objective lens.
Think about what do you from AM to PM 7 days a week. What routines do you take part in? What things should you stop or change-up?
Based on what you analyzed, write down 1-3 new routines that you need to implement ASAP in order to reach the goals you just set-out for yourself.
Make sure these new routines are realistic and practical, but also make sure they are challenging. Because no pressure means no diamonds…right?
Now start making changes. And because your changes and goals will continue to evolve, I recommend coming back to this audit every 6 – 18 months.
Keep in mind, you will have to work hard.
And if you aren’t prepared to work hard, then you aren’t prepared to change.
And that’s it! That is the first step to retraining your brain. If you’ve completed this audit, but you need help implementing your changes, let’s work together! I want to help you be successful. And SWEET BONUS: I am offering the first coaching session FREE to anyone who reads this blog post. Just make sure you send me a picture of your audit!
Alright, I hope you kick butt this week! And as always, have a productive and happy Monday ❤✌
