This week I finished a project that I was so excited about that I could hardly wait to wake up each morning and work on it! I finished my 2022 Belief Plan.
WHAT’S A BELIEF PLAN?
My Belief Plan is a series of scriptures, quotes, “I Am Statements” and thoughts that I want to believe on purpose this year. The plan is a reminder of the lens that I want to see myself through in 2022.
WHERE DID THIS “BELIEF PLAN” IDEA COME FROM?
Last year the most influential book that I read was “Soundtracks” by Jon Acuff. The main idea of the book is that we each have unconscious soundtracks playing in the back of our minds that influence our thoughts, feelings and actions ALL THE TIME and that we can be more intentional about the soundtracks that we want to play.
HOW THE PLAN WORKED FOR ME
I practiced the suggested soundtracks from Jon’s book for several months last year and they worked beautifully for me. One of my favorite thoughts I practiced was “I take pride in my appearance”. That thought was single-handedly responsible for more makeup and fewer trips out into the world in sweatpants last year.
I ADDED A FEW MORE SOUNDTRACKS
Once I practiced the thoughts from the book, it was time to create my own personal “soundtrack”. I gathered thoughts from a variety of sources. I’ve included “My Word For The Year”, favorite scriptures, a promise from my Patriarchal blessing, “I am Statements” that I already believe more than half way, and quotes that inspire me.
REMEMBERING MY BELIEF PLAN
This soundtrack became my belief plan that supports the emotional, spiritual, physical, social and intellectual person I am working towards this year. Last year my belief plan was a series of sentences on an 8-½” by 11″ sheet of paper hanging inside my medicine cabinet. This year it is a large poster collage of pictures and words that will hang in my bedroom.
Either a piece of paper or a poster works beautifully. It is the practicing of the beliefs on the belief plan that helps shift the thoughts, feelings and actions from the me of today, to the me I want to be tomorrow.
SMALL CHANGES DO ADD UP
One of my favorite quotes from President Gordon B. Hinckley was, “Try a little harder to be a little better”. That’s exactly what happens to me when I practice these new beliefs on purpose. I am more focused on what I want to do with my “wild and precious life”, who I want to love on more, what delights and inspires me, and what makes life a little more fun.
I CAN HELP YOU WITH YOUR BELIEF PLAN
I would love to help you discover what lights you up and inspires you. I’ve set aside some time on my calendar to have a “Belief Plan date” with a few of my favorite people, like you! Let’s get together for a “Belief Plan” date on Zoom and map out the beliefs that will inspire and motivate you this year. It’s Free and Fun!
