In the business world we are told to have an updated resume at all times as you never know when you are going to need it. At a moment’s notice you are prepared to take the next step in your career as your resume is ready to be sent out, received, and decided upon. You are ready to go. You are ready to fly! How about in your life? Are you prepared to take the next step in your life? Are you ready to go? Are you ready to fly? Do you know what you want? Do you know what you love? What are you passionate about? What are your dreams? How about being prepared to fly in your life as you’ve been taught to fly in your career? How about showcasing your purpose, successes, desires, and dreams in a life resume?
AFFIRMATION: My life is filled with amazing people and experiences.

“The world has the habit of making room for the man whose words and actions show that he knows where he is going.” ~ Napoleon Hill

For the next week, I invite you to create your life resume by:
Writing a life purpose statement: this should capture what brings you joy, love, and passion. When you read your purpose statement, it should immediately make you tingle with excitement.
Writing down 10 of your current life successes. This can be from graduating high school, getting a promotion, getting married, having a child, climbing a mountain, or getting out of bed through a period of illness. We often focus on what we haven’t done right in life rather than what we have, so let’s shift our thoughts to success over failure.
Writing down 10 things you are grateful for currently in your life. I am grateful for my health. I am grateful for my family. I am grateful for my happiness. And remember you should even be grateful for the contrasting experiences as it’s helping you define your desires by showing you what you don’t want.
Writing down 5 to 10 affirmations of where you want your life to move towards. This could be new job, new home, relationships, health, or anything that brings your happiness and excitement about the future.
Writing down 5 to 10 of your strengths. How many times have told people – I’m not good at that. Write down what you are good at!
Writing down 5 to 10 activities and hobbies you love to do.
Include a couple quotes that inspire you. Writing down three references of people you can call when you need that ‘You Rock’ inspirational boost. These references should be people who see your truth and support you in your journey as you do them.
Writing your life resume to really see how amazing your life already is and that it will catapult you to even greater heights. Read your life resume often. Update it often as while you grow, so will your desires and dreams. Read it on the days filled with successes and say YAY ME. Read it on days of contrasts to remind you of your purpose, your dreams, and your desires. Call your references to celebrate your successes. Call your references on when you need an inspirational boost on contrasting experiences.
Mostly, celebrate where you are today. Celebrate your yesterdays as they’ve brought you to today. Celebrate your tomorrows as your life’s resume is going to take flight and you will fly high. I already see you soaring!
Until next time, fly high – naturally of course. 🙂
Keep living big, loving big, and laughing along the journey.
