Staying Present While Planning the Future

Are you living in the present while dreaming for the future? 

I had an interesting meeting with some friends the other day. We were talking about our dreams for the future.  I was sharing about my recent Podcast on “Dreaming Your Future into Reality.” (If you haven’t had a chance to hear it, you can go to iTunes and listen to Episode 4.)

We began to talk about how we stay in the present, while planning for our future. It sounds simple enough, but with everything going on in our lives, sometimes it’s hard just to be present with our family, with our friends, even at our jobs.

How do we live in the moment? I always tell my coaching clients to, ”Bloom where you’re planted, while continuing to keep working toward the future. By doing this, you are able to enjoy the now, and keep moving to where you want to be.”

I’ve been working on this myself and over the years, I have discovered Four Disciplines, which have worked well. I have incorporated them into my life, and they keep me focused on the present, while I am moving toward the future.

Identity Uncovered

Identity Uncovered!

Today we are going to explore the who we were born to be that drives us to live a Champion’s Life!

Have you taken our new Quiz? “Are You Living a Champion’s Life?”

You can find it on my website Cindy-Stewart.com and it only takes five minutes.

Let’s step into a Champion mindset by talking about the first characteristic of a champion.

A Champion is someone who is strong in his or her identity. 

What is your identity?

Merriam-Webster defines identity as the distinguishing character or personality of an individual. In short, identity is the culmination of all attributes of our character, our personality and our genetic traits.

Our identity is who we are.

For so many years my identity was absorbed in what I did. It started when I was a young girl with pleasing my dad. My dad’s desire for me to be a successful businessperson became my focus, as I was afraid to disappoint him. And in my success it became my identity.  It was the only path I thought was available. I found myself making career choices based on one criterion: My Dad’s dream for me.

I never knew what I was passionate about or even interested in. There was never a time to discover or explore, because I was focused on my career.
