What could happen if you visioned up a day so perfect that it met all your needs and left you feeling fulfilled, nourished and whole? What if that one day became real, and it spawned more perfect days? What could you create in your world?
The work of Self Crafting requires a target to aim for. It’s much easier to move forward when you have some idea where you’re headed? A target differs from a goal.
Whereas a goal can be thought of as a certain allocated space that must be hit in order to achieve the desired outcome, a target is a general area you need to hit, but you don’t have to hit right in the centre to have made it.
With a goal, there’s no room for mistakes, changes or new understanding. Once you decide on a goal, then you have to achieve exactly that to be happy, and you will be sure to only create things that will make that goal happen, and nothing outside of it. What about all the other possibilities? A goal doesn’t allow you to include new information or energy that might come along. You still have to get that goal, even if the information has changed.
With a target, simply hitting somewhere in the vicinity is a good start, and the you can realign, refocus and aim again. By then, the target might have moved a few inches in either direction but that’s okay, because you are including all the new possibilities in your refocus for the next aim. A target allows room for movement and takes the limiting pressures away…
The One Perfect Day tool is a thought experiment to open a space that will be made real. By visioning the way you desire things to be, you will begin to make life choices that move you toward your vision. Nothing is the same forever : Aim and shoot, each time resetting your arrow slightly to set an even better course.
Knowing what you desire is the starting block for getting there.
It gives you something to continually aim for, and is totally adjustable in times of growth and change.
In the Self Crafted Wellness Journal we start by creating the target of One Perfect Day. Think of it as a peg on which to hang all of the 52 action steps for wellness, and will give you an excellent frame to set your sight.
Visioning One Perfect Day
