Resetting Your Default Switch

I can and I will.The start of the New Year offers the promise of hope and change. It’s a time of new beginnings and fresh starts. By now, the gifts from the holidays have been unwrapped. The decorations have been put away. The hustle and bustle that comes with the season has ended. And life moves forward. How are you feeling about 2017? Are you ready to go after the thing that you really want? If so, then it’s time to reset your default switch!

Your default switch keeps you safe. It’s your natural set of operational skills for life. It keeps you from getting off track. And, it keeps you comfortable.

Most of the time.

But what happens when you aren’t comfortable being comfortable anymore? When you’re yearning to live bigger collides with your internal pull to live life by default? When status quo is no longer enough and your soul desires to live deeper and fuller but your default switch tightens the reigns, you have a choice to make. Will you keep living the life you’ve always lived or will you let yourself live the life you’ve always wanted? It’s a choice. But you have to be living consciously and with courage to make it.

To help you define your deepest desire, write the answer to this writing prompt: What would you do if you could not fail? If time, money, knowledge, talent, and circumstance weren’t an issue, how would you spend your life? Make it detailed. Make it real. Don’t let your default reel you back in and edit your thoughts on the way out. Give your subconscious the freedom to build the roadmap.

Life is full of choices. 2017 will be full of choices. My hope for you is that this is the year that you say, “I can and I will.”

It’s time to reset the default switch. Get the support that you need to do the thing that you want. I have a “2017 Live Your Life by Design” group starting. I also would be happy to support you with one-on-one coaching. Schedule a 30-minute complimentary discovery session to reset your default switch.

Happy New Year! May it be your best year yet!
