54 – Having a Creativity Break
BY STAN KONTOS
When was the last time you had a holiday break? Even if it was just for a weekend away? I want to encourage you to develop an annual program whereby you have some regular breaks away from your normal routine. It is during these times you experience a surge of new thoughts (creativity) that if harnessed has the power to transform your life to the next level. This process has certainly brought some amazing changes for me.
You see any holiday is a “Holy-day” or a “Whole-ly day”. This is where you become more rested, peaceful, and where you experience a change in thinking for the better. Suddenly solutions come to life’s issues, and great ideas pop up that you never knew you had within you. Here’s the secret… write these thoughts down. Yes, write them down in a notebook (I always carry a notebook with me or my iPhone which has a note book in it) and when you get back home, put them into your “Goals System”. I have a Goal Planner in the form of a folder containing my goals for the next 20 years in sections each year such as health, finances, leisure, self development, business/career, spiritual development, friendships, relationships and family.
Once they are written in your goals folder, then now you need to set up some steps into how you will bring this new idea into reality. As time goes by, you will see your life change (for the better) from these holiday breaks.
Isn’t it amazing how we can take something from the “spiritual” and convert it to the “physical”. We receive a thought and through our will, we eventually convert it to reality. It may sound simple, and it is, however it is not easy – that is because we do need to put in the effort. Effort is required to plan these mini-getaways, effort is required to “capture” these thoughts when they appear, and effort is required to convert them to goals and finally effort is required to take the daily steps of these goals in order to bring them into reality.
Now you may ask me “Is it worth the effort Stan?” My answer is a resounding “Yes! Yes! Yes!”
The day will come when you will look back over a short period of a few years and see the incredible positive changes that have occurred in your life and career and you will be so glad that you put this extra effort into your life.
You have but one life so I encourage you to make it a masterpiece.
Live with passion, always stay on your life purpose, and stay at peace.
