Every Monday Morning I’d like to start the week by
directing your focus back to one of the Core Principles that
we have developed and highlight with the Daily Mastermind.
The 12 Prosperity Pillars represent the most important
principles that I have learned over time from Mentors and Thought
Leaders in my life.
The first of these key principles is
the statement, “I Create My Life”. I believe this is one
fo the most important principles that we need to learn, adopt, and
create confidence and belief around. It is the Core
Principle that many others principles are built around.
It is super important that you truly learn to believe and
have faith around the idea that YOU do create your life.
Your thoughts, beliefs and actions will determine the results
you achieve in life.
When you accept the idea that you create your life,
you can begin to craft and build the life you would like. If
you do not believe this thought, you will always feel that
life “happens to you rather than for you”. I
truly believe that it is important to start accepting the
idea that you are the one person that will create and
build the life you want. No one else is going
to do it for you.
When you accept that idea, it empowers you and helps
you to achieve much better results in life. I’d thought
I would share a few ideas and strategies I have learned to help you
create your life. I hope they will inspire you to start
spending time working on creating your best life.
Tips for Creating Best Life
Have a Clear Vision- we’ve discussed this topic
before, but its super important that you spend time really getting
clear on what you want your life to be like. Also, its
important to remember that what you focus on grows. So when you
focus on getting clear on your life, you will find ways
to make that life a reality. When you don’t spend
time getting clear, you will undoubtedly get whatever
life “dishes out to you”.
Be Intentional Daily- another thing I’d like to
suggest is that you should be intentional with where you spend
your time and where you put priorities in your life.
Successful people don’t let their schedules and days
determine their priorities. Rather, successful people make
sure that they schedule and priorities their day with
activities that contribute to their overall goal.
Script Your Story- lets pretend for a moment that you
were writing YOUR STORY. What would the plot be? What
characters would you write into the story? What obstacles,
challenges, life lessons and learning would you be committed to
seeing written into the script? I believe that you do
indeed write that story of your life. You can create
the story and choose to overcome the challenges that you
face because challenges are simply the stories that make your
life interesting and worth living. Spend some time directing
the script to be interpreted the way you “want it to
be interpreted”. Put your own meaning on events.
Don’t let events determine their own
Play at a High Level- it is also important to bring up
the topic of “Awareness”. If you want to create your
best life, you need to be “aware” of how you are living your
life. How are you showing up and how are you playing at the
game of life. Is it at a level 10 or a level 2? Are you
giving each day your best effort or are you simply showing up.
I know we can’t always be at our top level of
performance. Even Professionals need rest and recovery, but
it’s so important that you are “aware” of how you are
performing. This requires tracking, feedback and even
adjustments. I always recommend mentors, coaches
and accountability partners if you want objective feedback in
this area of your life.
Prioritize Your Life- obviously, the most critical
thing you MUST do is to prioritize YOU and YOUR life. It’s
hard for some people to prioritize themselves because they
feel it makes them appear selfish or even self centered. If you
have ever traveled on an airplane you know that they will instruct
you to put your own mask on before anyone else in the event of an
emergency. This is because the best way you can help
others is to make sure that you are taken care of and that you are
healthy and in the position to help others. I believe
that the same principle applies in day to day life. When
you work on creating a life that takes care of YOU and you are
healthy, happy and fulfilled, then you will be infinitely better at
being an inspiration to others around you. I spent much
of my life working to satisfy other people needs, wants and
desires, and I finally started putting myself first and it has made
all the difference. I start each of my days focused on
daily rituals that make me a better version of myself and it helps
me to bring the “best version” of myself to the people that I
love and care about.
Remember it’s Never Too Late to Live the Life You are
Meant to Live…
Quotes to Inspire You
"Today is the first Day of the Rest of Your Life,”
“You can fail at what you don’t want, so you might as
well take a chance at doing what you love,” Jim
“People overestimate what can be done in 1 year and
underestimate what can be done in 10,”
Throughout my life I have planned many of my big goals
in the short term (6months to a year), and I have set very few
long term goals. What happens with this is that you add
unneeded pressure and the ups and downs associated with short term
goals. When we take the advice of Bill Gates and plan our
lives and business with a longer term business, we accomplish so
much more. Also, you can gain very valuable perspective and
patience when you take a longer term approach.
I am not saying that you shouldn’t break your long
term goals into shorter term milestones, but I am saying that
most people lack the long term planning and therefore don’t
maintain a “bigger vision” of what their life could ultimately
become. As a result, they are forced to ride the ups and
downs of the waves of life. Try to start with your vision
long term and then work backwards.
My goal with the Daily Mastermind is to help you
Create the Life you were meant to live. I try to do this
by providing you the motivation, inspiration and education that I
feel can help you create the best version of yourself and Unleash
Your True Potential. But ultimately, the work is up to you.
You must be willing to accept that YOU CREATE YOUR LIFE.
I know that you have greatness inside you. I know that
you can make an impact on the work and that you
will accomplish amazing things if you will Prioritize Your
I hope this message resonates with you and you will
share it with others.
