This is a good to place to start to get the ball rolling. I hope you decide to follow each day and resign yourself to each new day’s opportunity to take some action which may impact your life in some way.
A while back I saw some footage of Frank Kern at an Internet Marketing conference from a couple of years ago, the content is totally relevant to everyone, everywhere. In it he outlines an exercise in which you can find more clarity about your Core (true) self.
The idea is you write down a whole bunch of stuff about your dreams
and goals – new house, better job, more money, neat car, perfect
partner etc. When you’re finished you’ll find most of those things
reflect the Surface (shell) You. He explains that what we most desire
is ongoing ‘experience‘. Seems obvious, and it is – but sometimes we
need to be reminded because we get so wrapped up in our day to day
lives that we forget.
Now to get to the Core You – go to step 2.
This time, consider your ‘Perfect Day‘. Imagine it without limitations
and without consequences. Write it in as much detail as you possibly
can – take some time over it. Start with what would you be thinking
about when you wake? What time is it? What’s the weather like? What’s
the view from your bedroom window, who’s with you?
What do you have for breakfast, and if there’s someone with you, what do you talk about over breakfast? Etc. etc. all the way through to your last thought as you lay in the dark about to go to sleep. Imagine you might have to relive this day over and over like Bill Murray in Groundhog day – what would it have to be like for you to be ok with it being like that ‘every‘ day.
When you get to the end of that exercise, read it back, feel like
you’re actually remembering it from yesterday – how do you feel? Now
you should be getting an idea about what the Core You really wants.
(By the way there’s a clue about how to identify the Core you – the
origin of the word Core means Heart. So look at what your heart is
‘feeling’ as you imagine your perfect day and it will reflect what you
Once you’ve completed your Perfect Day, write 5 goals that you need to achieve in order to make it a reality. You’ll then have an idea what you need to do to experience that Perfect Day for real. 🙂
