Build the life you want, today !
The biggest fallacy that is pervading our culture today is the idea that we are entitled to a great life, and that somehow, somewhere, someone is responsible for filling our lives with continuous bliss, simply because we exist, but nothing could be further from the truth. The only person responsible for the quality of our lives is us.
Knowing that we are constantly creating our reality by what we say and do is the beginning of taking control of our destiny and making it into something that we have always wanted.
The art of taking control of our lives
1. Do a life Audit-
A life audit is a thorough stock-taking of our lives to help us determine our purpose or rather what we want out of our lives. It can be tough as it requires complete honesty with ourselves and requires us to realize and give up on the toxic traits that hold us back.
2. Realize your Vision-
Now that we know what we want, we move on to envisioning those dreams and believing that they are achievable. We create a mindset shift by trusting in our abilities to make the needed impact. Our vision can only be realized if we make our goals actionable, measurable, and attainable by daily steps.
3. Make discomfort a habit.
Design an environment of success around yourself by learning new skills, improving on existing ones, and working on ourselves daily. Never staying static and leaving our comfort zones to wander the unknown is always rewarding.
4. Become Inverse Paranoid.
Imagine how much easier our lives would be if we are constantly expecting the world to support and bring us opportunities rather than always expecting the worst.
5. Refocus when changes happen.
Just as we grow and evolve our needs and desires evolve too. Therefore re-evaluating our plans and re-assessing our life at certain checkpoints are necessary to living a stress-free and fulfilling life.
