Well, today I started my challenges box as I realized that I seem to lose focus with my goals by being focused on problems, on challenges. And yes, as per idea of Napoleon Hill, writing things down helps. So I started with just a pile of A4 blank papers and wrote just the name, the title of each challenge on the top. And then I added some positive stuff on some of the challenges, somewhere in the middle of the page, like what actions I had taken. As often I, and I guess also you, do something about challenges, deal with them take action. And even if the action didn’t solve the problem or issue yet, you did it, like I realized I did with some of my challenges.
And then I looked for a box and found a shoe box. And I put my challenges in the shoe box.
And then I put the shoe box in between the papers related to some of my goals that are hanging outside of my/our bedroom. And then I sat on the bed and looked at the whole thing. And it made many things clear to me as you can read in my post how I dealt with my challenges today.
And I am not fully clear yet what to do next as I think this exercise, this tool could be extended a bit like in the original idea of creation box from Abraham Hicks.
But for now I want to share this with you already, as I guess just starting with writing things down about your problems, your challenges, put them in a box and look at them might already help you deal with things better, like it did for me today.
And yes, looking at this setup I had created I also saw the background and all the things that are already there, all the things I have, that are available to me, like the beautiful view. And suddenly my dreams looked so small compared with everything that’s already there. And so did my challenges.
