Every great achievement begins with a design and a plan. Create the life you dream of and the one you deserve in ways YOU can control!
It’s Your Life, You are in Control
No iPhone, computer, car, or even a pickle jar has ever magically appeared, all these things began with a design. A design that planned every single detail of the outside packaging and all the internal workings.
The same can and should be done with your life.
“Quality questions create a quality life. Successful people ask better questions, and as a result, they get better answers.” – Tony Robbins
The truth is that we have a lot of control of what happens in our lives. Many choose to blame the world, people, and circumstance for preventing them from getting what they want, while others take the stance that “nothing will get in my way.”
Those that live by this moto, are typically the most successful and content people, because they take responsibility for their own life, and know they have the power to mold it as they see fit, and they also have the strength to let go of things they cannot control, like people, the world and things.
When you lack a firm grasp on what fulfillment means to you and the actions needed to make it happen you will suffer frustration, turmoil and fleeting moments of happiness, as your life passes you by. Contentment will be temporary, as you will be waiting for finances, relationships and the world to change for you, instead of changing them yourself.
Opportunities will pass you by, and you may not even notice, as you grow more and more resentful. Instead of driving the car, you will be a helpless passenger along for the ride. Helpless, possibly hopeless and filled with discontentment and resentment.
The woman who keeps attracting “bad” guys and blames them for all her troubles…
The person whose finances are in a disarray
The person whose family life is in turmoil
The person who curses life because he or she cannot get the designer clothes or expensive car they wish for
The person who feels unhappy and miserable at his job and blames life, the world, and everything in between for not giving him or her something better
The person who only dwells on their problems without looking for solutions
The one who is jealous of and hates those with happy marriages because his or her own is in trouble
The woman who is not working as a chef, because she blames the industry for being biased against men
The guy who curses the boss and his associates because he keeps getting passed up for promotions
The list can go and on.
– These predicaments are rooted in feelings of helplessness, blaming, a lack of personal responsibility and NOT taking control of those things that you can control.
– By conquering doubt, fear, negativity and blaming, you can become the driver of your own life.
– Your thoughts and ideas are limitless, and are the foundation for anything you want to achieve and how you want your life to be.
– By changing your perceptions, attitudes and beliefs, you change your actions, take back your personal power, and increase productivity.
– When you have a plan that is rooted in personal responsibility, an ‘I can’ attitude, and an understanding of where you want your life to go, anything is possible.
ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. YOUR DREAM LIFE IS POSSIBLE. YOU HOLD THE KEY.
Life design is not a new concept, there are many strategies and books written on the topic, but all life-design plans begin with introspection.
“I challenge you to make your life a masterpiece. I challenge you to join the ranks of those people who live what they teach, who walk their talk.” – Tony Robbins
