Live Your Best Life On Purpose…
“Don’t just accept whatever comes your way in life. You were born to win; you were born for greatness; you were created to be a champion in life.”
― Joel Osteen, Your Best Life Now: 7 Steps to Living at Your Full Potential
It’s very easy to get caught up with the much readily available self-help information. You will be amazed at how much you are able to gain from asking yourself just a couple of questions! Your responses can help you evaluate if you are on the right track to attaining your purpose and make it easier to make a plan of action that is certain to get you there in record time.
Consider these two questions:
1.“If an invisible person followed you around all day long, what would they see?” Are they going to see you totally wasting considerable time? Would they see you working on your goals and aspirations? Would they see someone who is simply going through the motions?
- Our lives are mainly the consequence of those things that we carry out every single day. Do you think you’re taking steps that move you forward to the future you desire or are you currently involved in time-wasting, worthless activities?
- What would that invisible person logically deduce about you, your life, as well as your future?
2.“If you are living an average day, every single day, for the next 5 years, exactly what do you think will be the logical outcome? “If you decide to keep living your average day over and over, where do you think your life is likely to end up? Now compare and contrast that plausible conclusion with the kind of life you’d like to have. How comparable are they?
- Are you likely to find yourself where you would like to be financially? Have you been taking consistent actions to achieve the financial life you desire?
- Are you likely to have the physique that you want? Have you been eating healthy and exercising regularly? Or have you been waiting around to get started tomorrow, or Monday, or even the first of next month, or the first of next year? Getting the body you want is going to take a certain number of days, so you might as well start right now.
- Are you likely to be enjoying the type of relationships you desire? If you want to meet the ideal spouse, just how sociable have you been in the last week? How many new people have you met or even spoken to?
- Are you likely to be progressing in the career you seek? By way of example, based upon your overall performance over the past 12 months, do you consider that it is probable you will be promoted to at least the next level any time soon? Do you think you’re any closer to having that small enterprise running profitably?
Having considered the above two questions, you can now make some realistic plans and develop some really good practices. What are you going to do on a regular basis to achieve the lifestyle you wish for? If you wish to shed 10 inches off your waistline and weigh 75 lbs. less, then your day-to-day activities ought to reflect that.
People generally fall short of exactly where they desire to be for two reasons:
1. Lack of Vision
Many don’t have any concept of where they are going. You can’t arrive there if you don’t know the desired destination. If you do not have a strategy, you have to live by default, hanging out until something goes completely wrong and then you end up spending your time and energy fixing the problem. On the other hand, when you invest your time and energy driving in the direction of something, you will end up there.
2. Lack of Consistency
Many don’t carry out the things each and every day that will create the life they want. Most try once and then stop. There is a saying that “Rome was not built in one day”, you therefore need to keep at it till you see the results you want. Regardless of what several so called “experts” seem to claim, you can’t wish your way to success. Success is the effect of making positive decisions and taking actions that reflect those decisions.
Consider the 2 questions above. There’s a chance you’re going to be shocked when you truly take a look at your typical day and notice where you’re most likely to end up should you carry on doing those same things every single day. It does not take a great deal to be very successful, however it does take persistence.
For example, let’s suppose you did 1 push-up on a daily basis this week and added 1 push-up per week. In 5 years you would be doing up to 250 push-ups per day and you would certainly not struggle for a moment.
In the same manner, establishing daily routines that will move you forward towards accomplishing your goals will bring about your success. So which habit will you start today?
