Creating A Life You Would Love To Live
Just imagine you were pre-programmed to make life choices with your heart instead of your head. Would you be happier? Would you be the person your 8-year-old self thought you would be?
I believe it would be easier to create a life you would love to live if choices were made with your heart.
No one has found the secret to creating a life you would love to live. It can seem like an impossible task to manage a career, relationships, family, health, diet, fitness, and spirituality all at once.
While creating a life you would love to live. Whew!
Here are a few steps I believe will set the foundation to create a life you would love to live and not need a vacation from:
1. Develop a Vision
Whether you use the results of the Free Self-assessment or strive to become the person your 8-year-old self believed you would be, you need to develop a vision. Allow the vision to be fluid and free to change but stay true to it.
Keep the vision of playing like a television show in the back of your mind all day and allow it to influence your daily decisions. Be particularly conscious of your choices and allow this vision to be the compass directing you.
2. Take Deliberate Daily Action
Develop a battle plan. Write it down. Put it on your calendars. Journal it. Post notes to yourself. Yell it from the rooftops. Keep your goal front, center, and present.
Be sure to celebrate every victory. Every accomplishment. Every time a goal is reached should be a cause for celebration. These actions will give you strength when times are good and be a crutch, support, and motivation when times become more difficult.
Re-run the movie of your celebrations in the back of your mind each and every day. Smile and keep pushing forward knowing each and every day will bring you closer creating a life you would love to live.
3. Please Don’t Give Up
Changing your life and becoming successful at anything will be difficult. Working to create a life you would love to live will require a lot of time and a lot of work.
You must hold yourself accountable. This is your dream. Don’t be denied. Work even harder at it than you presently believe you can. Lean on your friends and family if you have to.
Enlist their help when necessary, even if they don’t fully understand your goal. Creating a life you would love to live will be worth it tenfold.
4. Results Will Produce Results
As you begin to be more successful you will begin to become even more successful (if that makes sense) LOL. Not only will you begin to find out what works for you, but success will also begin to attract even more success.
Now that you are becoming the change you seek like-minded people will begin to seek you. The glow of happiness and success will become a magnet. As times become easier and less stressful don’t let up.
Work even harder to create a life you would love to live. Hard times are always lurking around the corner.
5. Focus On What’s Working
Stay committed. Be present and work towards personal growth. Stick with your plan and stay vigilant. Constantly move towards what is working and yielding results.
This will require you to enjoy the process and work towards emotional, spiritual, financial, and physical growth.
Lead by example and follow examples you admire in your life. They have demonstrated wisdom and shared what you learn from them with others. Everyone has knowledge and wisdom you can benefit from.
Be on the lookout for good reads, workshops, seminars, and classes that may enhance your personal development. Be creative, have fun, stay focused and continue to work every day to create a life you would love to live.
6. Yell It From The Roof Tops
The journey to create a life you would love to live will be a long hard one. The alternative is even worst, living a life you hate. When you think about it, there is really no other choice.
Every day yells to the world that you intend to fight and work hard to create a life you would love to live. Don’t be embarrassed if the neighbors hear you. LOL.
Make it very clear to the universe you pity the fool or force that attempts to get in your way. OWN IT!
The return on your investment in yourself and the world around you will reap immeasurable rewards. Most people live their whole lives never believing they have the power to create a life you would love to live.
Be an inspiration to them and allow them to be a source of power to you.
Be the crazy person they remember constantly reminding them they can create a life they would love to live as they witness you yelling it from the rooftops. Take the Self Assessment below to begin to create a life you would love to live and become an authority to help others achieve the same.
Thanks for your comment Bob. Why a person started the journey is key. If a person is in Law School just because their family wants that for them and all they dream of is being a dancer they should quit Law School. Quitting can be good if it makes you happy.
It the why for creating a plan is solely to make money or to look better in someones eyes it is doomed from the start. Their why sucks. LOL. The most motivating why is to create happiness for yourself, providing a healthy environment for your family and helping others. Those whys are very difficult to quit on.
Re-evaluate your why Bob. It maybe the wrong why. Allow your heart to chose your why. If there is something else you would like to be doing that maybe the better why.
If a person believes they have the correct why and still find it difficult to continue they should use past success to help motivate them. The should find their tribe to help motivate them and provide the same service to other tribe members in need. When the correct why is found, never take one step backward. Always move forward. Everything is temporary, good times and bad times.
Tony, thanks so much for al the educational information.
I really like your site and all the information, my problems is not sticking with the plan you have put before me even though I think it is amazing. What would you tell me if I got half way through your list and was to give up? How can I stay focus after getting a good start?
I reall like this post Tony. It is especially relevant to me as a young individual on a journey for success and entrepreneurship. Your site is nicely designed as well ! Great work
Thank you for the kind words Julian. I wish you great success. Stay focused, determined and vigilant along the way.
Enjoy creating wonderful memories with good friends and family. People are more important than stuff.
This is a great post — very empowering and lots of great takeaways. Do you have any advice for what people should do when they get stuck on their journey? I teach others how to program and am continually looking for ways to help people get unstuck rather than mired down in issues. Thanks in advance for any other insights you could add that I can share with my followers.
Thanks for your comment Laura. My advice for anyone that becomes stuck and bogged down on a chosen journey is to remember the why. Remember why they started the journey.
Remember the benefits and the rewards that come with successful completion of that Journey. That is why I say one should celebrate all progress, large and small.
Reminiscing about these pass celebrations can be used as fuel and motivation to help carry you through the difficult times along the way. They will begin to look forward to creating more reasons to celebrate and creating even greater memories.
