Life book - live your life to the fullest:

Create your life vision: Before you can reach your goals, you have to know where exactly you want to be going - and you become 42% more likely to achieve your goals and dreams, simply by writing them down on a regular basis; the likelihood that you’ll transform your desires into reality goes up even further if you share your written goals with someone who believes in your ability to succeed. (From Dr. Gail Matthews, a psychology professor at the Dominican University in California, who recently studied the art and science of goal setting.)

* - Ideally, you will have taken at least 5 minutes before coming and written down answers to the 4 questions below. If you don't have time to do that, you can still come and share your thoughts and learn from the ideas of others. - *

"Whether you think you can or think you can't - you are probably right."

There are many programs out there to help you structure this process-
one is Jon Butcher's "Life Book". He structures your goals in life into 12 categories, and for each of these, you write down your beliefs, vision/goals, motivation and action plan. At the end you sum this up to a "life vision". If you think sharing this process with a team will be more fun and motivating - then you are at the right place!

GOAL
We meet every Tuesday for the next weeks and share our thoughts on one or several of the topics. When we have our "life vision", we can still meet once a month to share, support and motivate each other- to stay connected in a network of powerful goal achievers.

There are 2 options for this "course":
1) You join Jon Butchers online course "Life Book" - jonandmissy.com - This will get you videos to all the categories, where he talks about an hour about beliefs and strategies for each topic.
2) You can try to do the same by just using free online resources and the brief instructions I provide:

Why am I organizing this? (No, I am not getting any money from Jon Butcher.) I want to be part of a network of empowered like-minded goal setters, who live life to the fullest! And I hope I will find you via these activities.

PREPARATION
If you missed the introduction, don't worry, you can always join. We will share what we have written on the next topic.

This week’s topic is: Your Purpose in Life and Your Spiritual Life

Purpose:
when you are 80 or Protected content want to look back on your life, is there some greater context, did you give your life an extra meaning? Was it to serve people, was it to experience the most adrenalin sports adventure, was it to get enlightened? There is no right or wrong answer - having thought about it before you are Protected content probably a good idea, though.

Spirituality:
There are many ways to define spirituality. Define what is right for you, what do you believe and why. “Knowing what we believe and why we believe it gives us a deep strength within ourselves. It helps to create a feeling of standing on solid ground, and asks us the questions of who we are and what we are all about.” Jon B.
In addition to answering the 4 questions, define a spiritual goal.
Choose a daily practice that supports your spiritual goal.
Examples of spiritual practices:
• Forgiveness
• Meditation
• Spending time in nature
• Giving
• Self-acceptance

We always answer these 4 questions:
1) What are your beliefs about each category- and do they serve you?
2) What is your goal, your ideal vision?
3) Why do you want this, what is your motivation, that will pull you through?
4) And last but not least, define your steps to that goal, your strategy- what will you do on a regular basis? (Put numbers and dates on this- be concise. Use SMART goals: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Rewarding, Time-bound)

Put this in writing: at least one bullet point or sentence for each of the four questions.

AGENDA
We will share what we have written (of course only the parts you are comfortable sharing) - a rough time frame is 10 minutes per person for reading and questions / advice from the group (roughly half/half).
We try to be respectful of your time, so that we greet and order drinks and food (as a courtesy to the restaurant we get to stay in) within the first 10 minutes and then start sharing; we finish after an hour/ an hour and a half at the latest.
Then whoever wants to stay longer and chat some more, is welcome to do so.

Because of the nice weather it will be at the Protected content
