THRIVE-ing is about living the life you have envisioned. Are you seeing the big picture? Are you THRIVE-ing now? If not, what are some of the things in your life that you would like to change? Does your vision reflect the changes you want to make?
In order to THRIVE, you must invest daily in yourself. You have created a vision for where you want to be, and it is important that you remind yourself of that vision! Write it down and post it wherever you will see it—at your desk, in your car, on the refrigerator… Don’t lose sight of where you want to be!
You have also picked some buddies to keep you accountable on your journey to THRIVE. These people will be excited about you THRIVE-ing, and they will want you to succeed, so it is important to remember that it is ok to ask them for help in reaching your goals. Having a bad day? Talk to your buddy! Always make sure to keep your buddy updated on your progress. Instead of just talking, invite your buddy to join you for a run—the benefits will be two-fold: you will both be THRIVE-ing together!
Guide to THRIVE focuses on your Body through MOVE-ing and EAT-ing, your Brains through THINK-ing, and your Bliss through FEEL-ing. You will want to set goals for each of these four categories. What are your MOVE-ing, EAT-ing, THINK-ing, and FEEL-ing goals?
When you think about your goals, imagine what THRIVE-ing will look and feel like. What do you think it will feel like for you?
By taking care of your Body, Brains, and Bliss, you will be THRIVE-ing. THRIVE-ing is about living the life you have envisioned. For more advice on setting your goals to THRIVE, read Chapter 4 of Dr. Vonda Wright’s Guide to Thrive: Prepare to Achieve: See the Big Picture.
