We all wish to have a good life, it’s our earnest desire to do, be, and have great things. Yet, most people are not achieving their expected result while wishing is the highest some others do. Regardless of your personal experiences and lack of resources, we all have the ability to create the life we want. We just need to learn how to do it.
Is there an exact “formula” ? No, but there are common practices that can jump-start your success and attract what you want in life.
BE 100% RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR LIFE
It’s funny how we feel we are entitled to a great life simply because we exist. We blame everyone and anyone for our present state. That’s when you hear lines like, “my parents didn’t lay a good foundation for me”, “my uncle refused to assist me”, “my friend is so selfish”, “my environment isn’t encouraging” e.t.c. But the truth of the matter is that external factors don’t determine how you live. You are in complete control of the quality of your life.
Don’t waste your time and energy blaming and complaining. Evaluate your experiences and decide if you need to change them or not. Face the uncomfortable and take risks in order to create the life you want to live.
CLEARLY DEFINE WHY YOU ARE HERE
Identifying, acknowledging and honoring your purpose is perhaps the most important action successful people take. If you don’t know what you’re supposed to be doing, tune in to the signals around you. Looking toward others for help and guidance is good, but don’t forget to stay tuned in to yourself. Identify what’s working and what isn’t. You might be surprised by what you discover.
DECIDE WHAT YOU WANT
This sounds simple but pretty hard in practice. Many people are overly busy yet feel unsatisfied and unfulfilled. They are physically tired, spiritually drained, and far from where they’d like to be.
Why? Because they haven’t clearly mapped out what they want and then taken the steps to get there.
One of the main reasons why most people don’t get what they want is, they haven’t decided what they want. They haven’t defined their desires in clear and compelling detail. What does success and fulfillment look like to you? Not everybody’s definition is the same, nor should it be.
BELIEVE IT IS POSSIBLE
First win in your mind before you even dare to try. With that much energy and expectation to win, you will give it your best shot to actually win. I mean you are in it to win, so believe it is possible to achieve your expected result.
BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
You are your most important constant factor. Choose to believe in yourself and nurture yourself to accept your new realities of building the life you want.
If you need just one thing to do different today than you did yesterday, make it this: Commit to taking 100% responsibility for every aspect of your life. Decide to make changes, one step at a time. Once you start the process you’ll discover it is much easier to get what you want by taking control of your thoughts, your visualizations, and your actions!
