“We are our choices.” Jean-Paul Sartre
That is the truest quote I believe there is that defines who we are.
The point in our life that we are in right now is based on the past choices we have made. It is not anything else but that, we can't blame our jobs, our bosses, the economy, where we live, how we were brought up, or our race, color or origin. Take a minute to think about where you are in your life right now, is it where you want to be or where you thought you would be at this age? If not don't panic there is still time to Live The Live You Deserve!
Let's take a closer look at how our choices affect our success.
In Your Personal Life: Are you doing what you love in terms of your passions? What personal goal and dreams are you working towards? Do you have goals, dreams and thing you want to accomplish now or in the future that seem out of reach? Do you have a 1,3 or 5 year plan on where you would like to be then?
Job/ Career: Are you in the job or career you are passionate about or are you in a job that you are comfortable in because it pays the bills and allows you comfort in knowing you have a steady income coming in to support your family or your lifestyle?
Financial: Do you have the current cash-flow coming in you want? Do you have your savings account built up to where you could still afford your lifestyle for six months or more if you needed? Are you or have you created msi? (Multiple Streams of Income)
Health/ Appearance: Are you in the shape and weight you want to be? Are you eating healthy and nurturing your body? Do you have a regular exercise schedule that you follow consistently?
How can you start Living The Life You Deserve? Well think about this there are no have to's in life only Choose to's. You do not have to to anything in life you don't want to do, nor can anyone make you do anything you don't want to do. There might be consequences for each but you don't have to. An example would be paying your yearly income tax to the IRS, you don't have to pay taxes and no one will make you, but you choose to to avoid the consequences of an audit or even jail time.
I want to share an exercise with you that I do in my seminars and workshops and with my coaching clients. The next time you are face with a "Have To" situation take a minute think about it and rephrase the question from having to, to choosing to.
Examples would be: I have to go to work/ I choose to go to work so I can continue living my current lifestyle, I have to start saving for retirement/ I choose to start saving for retirement so I can live the life I deserve now and in the future/ I have to eat better and lose weight/ i choose to eat healthy and nurture my body so I can fell lean and fit/ I have to clean my house/ I choose to clean my home because I like to live in a clean environment and so on.
Thank you for taking time to read and I encourage you to implement the steps given in the blog because you truly deserve the life you choose!
I had the pleasure of traveling to Scottsdale Arizona last week to be on the assisting team of Jack Canfields Breakthrough to Success week long transformational workshop for more that 300 attendees from 27 different countries.
Throughout the week the participants ranging from entrepreneurs, sales people, authors, business owners to home makers and retirees went through many different exercises and experiential learning and deciding what they wanted out of life, dealing with difficult and troubling situations in their life and learning how to move past them. The more than 300 attendees also made lifetime connections with each other and had a real bonding experience during the week that will carry on for many years with most of them. They found clarity of purpose and removed some limiting beliefs they might have come in with. But the most important and most valuable lesson they learned is that they now know they have the tool within themselves to achieve any goal or dream they desire through being clear on what they are wanting to achieve, taking 100% responsibility for their life and taking action on what they choose to. They came out of Breakthrough To Success with the confidence and tools needed to live the life they deserve!
Another highlight of Breakthrough To Success was two personal friends of mine have a organization called Pathways To Success For Youth and they brought 15 young high school adults for the week long training. These amazing young adults were so grateful when I spoke to a few of them after they were simply amazed and on fire to get out and create the life of their dreams knowing everything they need to succeed is within them!
It was an honor and a pleasure to be apart of the major transformation that occurred last week in Scottsdale ,AZ and I truly appreciate and am grateful for the connections I made that will continue.
