KICK START 6 WEEK PLAN
Welcome to the culmination of all of the brilliant work you’ve done. If you’ve read my book Flourish, you’ve been on an epic journey of discovery and transformation already. Now it’s time to consciously ensure this isn’t a book you forget about and these aren’t principles which fall by the wayside. It’s well known learning theory that you forget 80% of what you learnt once you leave the classroom so we’re going to embark on a six-week boot camp to kickstart a new, balanced you forever.
Follow this plan step by step and push out beyond your personal comfort zone to achieve a better you with every passing day.
”To laugh often and much;Ralph Waldo Emerson
To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of our children;
To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;
To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;
To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition;
To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
A Journal: Treat yourself to one that feels special. Make the process of putting pen to paper a delicious ritual that you look forward to (so make sure it’s nothing like your work notepad!). I love A4 hardback Paperchase journals and treat myself at sale time to bulk buys so I’ve always got a new one at the ready. My daughter loves her A5 brown leatherbound ‘diary of yesteryear’. Whatever rocks your world will be perfect!
A Printer: There will be pdfs for you to download and print as we go through each week so it’s best to have access to a printer.
Time & Commitment: You are about to enter a new life chapter so create the space and time to enable it to flow. This programme is designed to build your skills for an empowered life where you never burn out, always gently, harmoniously have maximum impact, redefine success on your terms and find happiness that endures so please honour the process and prioritise this as your core focus for the next 6 weeks. 6 weeks is a fraction of a lifetime to help put it in perspective! Perhaps slow down on the socials or work commitments just for 6 weeks so you can embrace this programme optimally.
Open-mindedness: And finally here’s a reminder to stay open-minded. Your comfort zone feels safe but nothing ever grows there. Push your boundaries, try new things and see what resonates. At the end of six weeks you can evaluate what works for you, what isn’t right for you now and have a personalised plan to flourish your very own way. I’m so excited we’re on this journey together. Now let’s get started. Ready…?!
THE BEST SELF KICK START PLAN
Before we begin you need to open your journal, write today’s date and a few sentences that describe your intention to flourish and what this Kickstarter 6 week programme means to you. If you feel the writing flow then continue and express how you feel now – physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally – and how you hope to feel after the 6 weeks. Once done, that’s your journal ceremoniously opened and ready to receive. Now, let’s go!
”I wish I could go back and tell myself that not only is there no trade-off between living a well-rounded life and high performance is actually improved when our lives include time for renewal, wisdom, wonder, and giving. That would have saved me a lot of unnecessary stress, burnout, and exhaustion.Arianna Huffington
