September has arrived. With the memories of our summer holidays, with new dreams, new plans, new energy... ready to face the last quarter of this year. Or not so ready...?
Do you know what a year is? A year is the sum of 356 days. Everyday is a new opportunity to stop filling your life, to start feeling your life. Keep reading...
Forget about trying to do it all
Stop wasting time trying to juggle everything
Take of your list “to learn to do everything right”
With Stairway to rock, you will be able to create a simple -yet powerful- plan to reach your targets. We present you a method with small steps, that anyone can follow, even if you don’t have time, the discipline, or you feel demotivated.
Through small steps, -one step at the time, and one foot after the other-, prioritizing and keeping at sight your target, makes the huge difference. The difference between counting the days, and making the days count!!
Stop filling your life and start feeling your life
After a summer break, will batteries fully charged, it all seems possible. But we all know life is a rollercoaster. That's probably the one thing we all agree to. Everyday, we have the choice to hold tight, -and wait for the ride to end-... or to L I V E and to enjoy the ride. Every day. Every single day.
In "Stairway to rock" you will learn:
How to set the direction of your life and align your activities to your plans
How to let go to move forward -lighter-
How to measure progress
How to take life in one step at the time, doing what add towards your own targets
How to prepare a contingency plan for the “rainy days”, for the leaves falling, for the cold winter days.
Don't take my word for it. This is what participants of previous editons say:
- "Feeling refreshed. Great inspiration"
- "While doing the exercises I realized that I could only remember a few challenges and they did not seem so big on paper now"
-"Had such a great time reviewing the pictures. Loved it!"
-"Good ride yes! So good to take time for yourself and having the community"
How do we do it? Here is a summary of what Stairway to rock online program includes:
1. LOOKING BACK TO MOVE FORWARD
By looking back we choose what lessons we have learned and what we want to get in our backpack to move forward.
2. LET GO OF WHATEVER DOES NOT ADD
Letting go of what only gives you burden will help you make space for things and experiences that add and that matter.
3. DAY BY DAY
Because a year is the sum of 365 individual days, you need to make each day count.
4. CELEBRATING LIFE
Because we celebrate life -as opposed to survived-. Celebrating the small steps you take and the progress, no matter how small they may seem.
5. UMBRELLA, FOR THE RAINY DAYS -CONTINGENCY PLAN
Not every day is easy, but every day is worth it. Set yourself up to make it through the rainy days. Learn to switch on the light, and to sing…in the rain.
Additionally, we have included a few BONUSES. Who does not like to get some extra surprise bonuses?
Do you have any questions? Find below some frequently asked questions about this challenge, in case these are yours too:
"I have no clue about how I want to live my life"
You do not have to see the full staircase to take a first step. That first step would not take you to the top, -of course not-, but it will take you out of where you currently are. I am sorry to disappoint you, but you are not alone on this one. A lot of people out there are also lost.
In this challenge, Caroline and myself will walk by your side, step by step, to overcome the obstacles as they present themselves so that you end up the challenge with a plan, tailormade for you.
"No wind blows in favour of a ship without direction" -Seneca
"I don’t know when I will be able to allocate time for this challenge"
At this time of the year especially, we are super busy. Well, at what time of the year are we not? To make things easier, you will have the material available whenever you choose to take it, so that you can even take it at your own pace, as you keep on with your usual life activities. Remember that you want to live a life worth living, and this is precisely the reason why you are reading this right now, and this is precisely what will keep you finding a way, and putting excuses down.
“The bad news is that time flies. The good news is, that you are the pilot”.
"I am a resourceful person and I learn fast, may be I can just listen to a few videos on TEDx or on YouTube and download material from a few blogs and that’s it"
Great! There is plenty of material out there, much for free too and, honestly, you can totally do it by yourself. However, most people find that this approach is not as easy as it may sound, especially when the storm -or just “life-as-usual”, arrives with its inertia. It is quite possible, and also quite frustrating, to realize that there is a lot of material out there, but often, does not resonate to you, it is one-size-fits-all, and going through much of that on your own will be a waste of your valuable time -and money, since your time is valuable and you choose where to invest it (or how to waste it?). Together we support each other. The community created in this program are going to be your travel companions, during the program and below if you choose to join the "All time Rockers" group.
"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together" -Proverb
"I do not like pressure, I like to take things at my own pace"
In this challenge, each participant follows their own pace. What we do is to hold the rythm, to give the tone. Sometimes, even when we sing alone -not to mention if we have hadphones on-, it is easy to lose the rhythm and tone.
“If you always do what you have always done, you will always get what you have always got” -Henry Ford.
"What you propose looks interesting, but not right now"
Today it is “normal” to juggle with a million things and obligations at the same time, and to try to stretch time to accomplish more and more things, to “succeed”. And, on top of that, adding the commitment to this challenge? Really? This is precisely the vicious circle you want to break to get into a virtuous circle that will get you to grow. If you wait for the perfect moment, it may never arrive. You may just as well take this moment and make it perfect.
“The best moment to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second-best one, is now” - Proverb.
One more note
Your life is in your hands. You can choose to live it as you want. We are here, by your side, precisely because we ourselves have gone through most of what concerns you, and we have managed to leave it behind, and live a fulfilling life. We have also accompanied many people in similar situations, some even crying out of desperation because they feel trapped, in a cave, in a well, under-water, in a mouse-wheel, as they themselves describe it. And we have seen and experienced in ourselves and in others, the difference it makes to get out of the loop and get on a virtuous one, and thrive, fly. And that, matters to us.
There is nothing more rewarding than to use our own personal experiences, and that of others, and put it at your service, at your disposal, so that you save yourself some trouble and frustration.
