Paris in Spring … discover the magic
Shreds of winter blow cross the cobbled stones of Rue du Cloitre. An errant leaf stops on the way-side. It seems winter plays a game with Spring … but it is Spring who claims the victory.
Spring in Paris is magical. Spring in Paris casts a spell. A new cycle of growth appears and fresh-green leaves sprout upon naked limbs. Cherry trees wear pink garments of perfumed blossoms looking like bridesmaids against the bride of all brides … the graceful lady of Notre Dame. Spring in Paris is magical. Spring in Paris casts a spell.
Discover the magic …
1. Get the hard bits out of the way first (pretty much a principle for anything on our life-necessary list i.e. clean the floors then bake the cake.) Put the ‘not-my-fave-thing-to-do’ on the top of the to-do-list and that is the NO Exceptions one out of the way.
2. Break-up with your ‘friends’ procrastination and doubt ... they weren’t your friends anyway. Then break-down your goal, dream, aspiration, or change-state, into smaller steps – that is little goals and these little goals are the little feet that take you to your dream, they keep you moving forward AND they get you Started Immediately!
3. Now, that is – immediately - set a completion date - a finishing-line - and visualise yourself reaching the line and breaking through the ribbon with arms raised, crowds applauding and a huge winner’s smile on your face ... after all you are doing it Flamboyantly!
Easy 3-step solution to nip headaches in the bud before they nip you into ill-health.
