BLOG: I Create My Life- Pillar #1
Today's post is going to be the 1st of a 12-week series on the Prosperity Pillars. These are the 12 Principles for Success that I created from my experience with different thought-leaders, experts, and individuals in the field of Personal Development and Financial Education.
My goal with this series is to help create a foundation for you in your life, and when applied, it will support you in all your endeavours. Jim Rohn, one of the fathers of Personal Development and one of my mentors, said “We all have two choices. We can make a living, or we can design a life."
How powerful is that? I'll repeat it. We all have two choices. We can make a living, or we can design of life.
How many of us are just going through life on a day-to-day basis, living our life, making a living, doing all these things... without consciously designing or creating our life? That's why I've created Principle number 1: I Create My Life.
Which one are you doing? Think about that for a minute. Are you just making a living, getting by? Or are you designing and creating the life that you were meant to live? Because, let's be honest, your focus will determine the results that you're going to get.
Do you ever wake up after weeks and weeks of work and just think, "Man, where did the time go by?" The principle around success that is one of the most recognized throughout time is the Principal (or let's call it the Secret) that your thoughts create your life. And if your thoughts create your life you have to be asking yourself how consciously you're directing those thoughts.
If you're consciously designing a life, then you'll have thoughts that take you towards creating your life. You have to remember that your thoughts will create feelings. Your feelings will result in your actions. Those actions create experiences which will reinforce beliefs that you have in your life.
So you have to consciously be there every single day. Every. Single. Day. Create your life now.
Make no mistake, whether you're consciously creating your life or you're just living your life, something's being created. I prefer to have a conscious effort creating my life and I think you do too.
First, you must believe you can do it. Now a mentor of mine, Les Brown, says, "Greatness is within you." We all have the power and the greatness inside of us to create the life that we were meant to live. We can do this. You must BELIEVE that.
if you have trouble with that belief right now, you can do a lot of different things to change that. We'll talk about those in a minute. But first and foremost, you must believe that you can do it.
Second, you must create daily activities which will empower you towards designing and creating your life. For example,
The above will ultimately be creating habits daily habits for success. This will help you to be able to create the life you're meant to live.
Remember, energy is key. You must be able to create some energy too. Do that through physical exercise and creating a state of mental awareness that gives you the energy you need.
So once again ... first you have to believe you can do it, and second you have to create daily activities that will help you design your life.
One of the things you could do, for example, with affirmations (and one of the reasons I have the prosperity pillars poster is that you can repeat, time and time again, these affirmations for success.
Go ahead and say that to yourself ... just say it out loud, "I create my life. I create my life!" It's empowering to be able to make these statements, these affirmations, these powerful statements. Let your mind soak them in and begin to start focusing on what's really important.
I'd like you to set some goals. Because here's the thing ... if you don't have goals of where you'd like your life to be, what are the chances it's not going to end up where you want it to be? As you grow up people ask you what you want to do. Then as you go through school, you ask, "What do I want to do? What major do I need to have? What kind of job do I want?"
I really think they have it wrong.
A mentor of mine, a long time ago, told me, "It's not as important that you know your thoughts as much as the questions you ask yourself that create your thoughts." So don't ask yourself what you'd like to do or what your goals are. Ask what you want your life to be like.
What do you want your life to be like? If you're going to start creating and designing a life, don't begin with what you want to do for a living, or what you want to have for material things, or for relationships. Ask yourself what you want your life to be like.
I believe that if you were to consciously create memories, then you're going to be creating a life of fulfilment, happiness, and success.
I'd like to empower you with a particular strategy for you to try today.
I want you to think back about some of the things that made you the happiest and the most fulfilled. Consciously set a goal for yourself to create a new memory. Create a memory that you feel like you can put inside you, in a repertoire of memories that you've had throughout your life. Use that to motivate yourself to consciously create your life.
I really believe that if you do this, if you make the effort to create your life, you'll be far more successful than you’ve ever been: Far happier and more fulfilled as well.
I believe it's never too late for you to begin living the life you were meant to live.
