What does Your Best Life mean to you? If money was no object what would you be doing in this world instead?
Does it mean being able to design your own lifestyle and live life on your own terms? Work the hours you want, wherever you want? Have more freedom and flexibility to spend time with family and loved ones?
Or perhaps pursuing your goals and interests? Exploring your creativity side and following your passions? Or maybe you have ideas that can make a big difference in the way we do things today and would like them heard?
It’s hard to imagine any other possibilities when we are sucked in our 9-5 grind. When we are constantly working, it’s impossible to let our creative juices flow!
But the digital world we now live in has completely changed everything! It has revolutionized both the economy and how we do things. Unlike any other time in history, we have tremendous opportunity to create a lifestyle of our own design.
With persistence, a laptop and a dream anyone can create their best life!
Principle 1: Know Your Vision
I am a firm believer that in life you don’t get what you really want if you’re not clear on your vision. As Lisa Nichols wrote in her book Abundance Now, you cannot hit a moving target!
Your dreams and the clarity of your vision are the catalyst to your success; they provide the targets for success.
It’s all about the mindset, we have heard people say - and this is very true, when you start to picture yourself living your best life you will start attracting it minute by minute and your subconscious mind will find a way to make that dream a reality.
Principle 2: Invest In Yourself
“If you ever want to become successful in life, find someone who’s done what it is you want to do and duplicate them.”
This is very powerful! Find someone who’s been there, done what you are looking to do and who is willing to teach you how to do the same thing. The key here is to learn. Success is much more obtainable when you have someone who is more experienced than you to show you the ropes and guide you along the way.
In business; you want to learn from mentors who have the successes and lifestyle you want, and build a relationship with them. Based on who they are they may or may not be personally accessible to you, but you can still be mentored by them, just from a far. Attend their seminars, webinars, listen to their podcasts, follow them on Facebook! Read their books; the internet makes connecting so much easier today. These are priceless tools to help you succeed.
Principal 3: Do The Work!
Simply put the deposit is first, the withdrawal comes later. You MUST also decide what you’re willing to give up temporarily to get what you pictured to be your success.
Success is never going to be easy or convenient. Conviction and convenient don’t live in the same block. Be prepared to do the work.
It’s not always easy to build your ultimate best life, but it can be SIMPLE. Everything in life is about giving and receiving, if you sow sparingly you will reap sparingly. If you give a lot you’ll get a lot – very simple.
Principle 4: Know Your Values
What are your true values? Without knowing your true values, you will perish by replaying your past, with all its failures. Make your key decisions based on your true values, with definitiveness and purpose. Use your values to ensure you maintain balance and flow, to keep you in-check with what matters most.
Without an awareness around your true values and purpose in life you will likely focus the quick fixes, the easy options, the shiny objects!
The problem with this is that when we focus on the quick, easy fixes we will nearly always make the wrong decisions for ourselves. These decisions will most often lead to a very unfulfilled life with a constant awareness of the fact we are not living a life of our true purpose and passion.
When we know what our true values are, they become a barometer in our decision making and as a result, we will be much more inclined to make the right decision that will lead to true fulfilment.
