Our house has been upside down this past week. We’ve been emptying and decorating our spare room to make room for our new little arrival in April. The teeny baby clothes are out of storage, washed and ready for their new home. All the kit and caboodle a newborn needs has been ordered. Nesting season has officially started. There are 7 weeks to go and I’m getting prepared.
Among the chaos, I realised something. We’re making room in our home and our lives for something we want to happen – welcoming the new addition to our family. We’ve got total belief that, this springtime, we’ll be a family of four. That belief has created action in the form of a big, pre-baby to-do list for me (and mostly for my husband).
Where in your life could you do with a bit more belief? Where should you be ‘nesting’?
Think of a goal or vision you have for your career or business. Do you believe 100% that you WILL make it happen, that you will bring that goal into the world? And are you ‘nesting’ for it? Imagine when you want to have achieved this goal. If you knew it would absolutely be a reality on that date, would you be ready for it? If it arrived into the world a little early – like today or tomorrow – would you be ready for it?
I realised I’d been ‘putting off’ a few things in my own business as I was waiting until I’d got ‘there’, achieved my big goal. What my little nesting frenzy taught me is that, by waiting, I was keeping that goal just out of reach. If, instead, I had total and utter belief that it will happen I’d be doing a few things differently. When I asked myself “if I’d achieved this goal today, would I be ready?” I couldn’t honestly answer yes. I needed to get my house in order. I needed to ‘nest’ for my business.
So, over to you. Think about your goal. Imagine it’s here now, wrapped up in a big, red bow, ready for you to start living it – are you ready? What actions can you take now to demonstrate your total belief that it will happen? Share with us what 1-3 actions you will take to ‘nest’ for your goal in the Comments below.
