A few days ago I referred to the Change Your Life Challenge, but I didn't really explain much, as I was in a bit of a rush at the time. I've been so excited about it, too, that some part of me thinks that of course everybody knows what it is!
Not so, silly Cyn.
So let me back up, and explain a little more about WHY I want to do it, and why I'd think any of you would have any reason to plunk down money to do it, too.
Every morning, no matter what else my email brings, I know there'll be an uplifting message from Brook Noel. I'm honestly not a big fan of most generic affirmations or inspirational newsletters, but somehow Brook's daily Good Mornings don't annoy me. They avoid glurge, and I frequently add her quotes and affirmations to my PopUp Wisdom file.
I first "met" Brooke through her book, The Change Your Life Challenge, which I found at a local bookstore a few months ago. I learned that the book is actually based on a successful online program, looked it up, and was intrigued. It promises to teach:
- A step-by-step system for conquering clutter and keeping your home clean
- How to recreate the dinner hour and manage mealtimes
- How to make time work for you â€”instead of against you
- How to discover and live by your core values and beliefs
- How to implement the simplest â€œdietâ€ in the world
- The â€œkeyâ€ to never forgetting anything
- How to improve your relationships with the â€œ5-Minute Miracleâ€
- How to end procrastination
- How to implement a budget and manage your money
- And much more!
I was worried because of the "70 day" part, though. What business did I have signing myself up for yet another calendar-bound thing that I'd end up having trouble with?
Well, I listed to Brooke's podcast last Monday, and she happened to say that if she could go back and change anything, she would retitle the program as "A 70 STEP Life Makeover Program" and toss out the idea of tying it to the calendar. Forward motion is important, but making it fit your life is more important.
So yes, the Challenge is very much doable for anyone, including those of us who have chronic illnesses. It'll be even more so in a small group of women who understand each other's issues.
So here's my challenge: I'm going to begin the 70 Step Challenge on July 15. I've set up a private group for anyone who joins up to do it with me. You'll have all the normal (extensive!) support of the organization - there are thousands of people on her lists! - as well as a chance to build friendships within a smaller group of people in my group. We'll do some chats, set up "buddies," and use other techniques to help each other succeed. We won't get tied up in rushing through the challenge as much as in working it with a sense of balance.
Won't you join me? I'd love to get to know you better, and it's always good to have more friends and a better support network.
I'm taking the Challenge.....are you?
