I originally wrote this article in December 2013, but in spite of the time that passed since then, it’s still relevant. I’m honored that you stopped by to learn about how you can live your life by design and not by default. My hope is that this article inspires you to re-evaluate your priorities and live a life you are proud of. And know that I’m cheering for you from my corner of the world. Keep me posted about the shifts you decided to make in your life thanks to reading this article. I can’t wait to read your comment!
I hope you’re having a great week. I’m taking two days off to support my friend as she undergoes chemo treatment and I’m super excited to have time to be there for her and her children (no, it’s not me on the picture on the right – but I’ll show you how it relates).
After posting about it last week my inbox was flooded with emails, good wishes and many said they’re praying for my friend. I’ve read each email and social media message that came my way and I want to thank you for taking time to support and encourage. I’m very proud to have such a great community of entrepreneurs and supporters here at Powerful Life Consulting. You are amazing!
Last week I focused on the importance of designing our business around our life and relationships, not the other way around. Still, there’s one more thing I want to add to this equation. But let’s summarize what we have so far…
1. Define your priorities
First, you need to define your priorities. What is it that matters to you? What do you need to do or have in order to say that your life mattered? Remember, your priorities will be your own and only you will know once they’re right.
2. Map out your blueprint
Secondly, map out your blueprint. How are you going to get to that place? How long will it take? What steps are necessary in order to get there and reach your goals?
3. Have faith
Now let’s add the missing link… have faith. I don’t know where you are at your spiritual journey, but you’ve probably already noticed that I’m a strong believer in God. Raised atheist, I’ve learned that life’s much better with God on my side. No matter where you are today, I want to encourage you to believe. In your calling, in your skills, in your passion, in your plan, in divine support. If you can’t believe in yourself, hire a coach who will believe in you and your goals and help you achieve them, join the group that will support you during difficulties. Or read scriptures in Bible about the plans God has for your life. Have faith in business on a proper place, keep it high and you WILL prosper. Choose faith over fear and you WILL see the results.
Around this time in January most of the people around the globe give up on their resolutions and slip away from their goals. My vision for you, whether you’re our follower, friend, client or Impact Academy member is that you actually achieve the goals you’ve set up, fulfill the mission you were designed to fulfill, multiply your skills, help more people and make more money. Are you ready to do whatever it takes? Let’s refocus, put all the necessary systems in place and have the best year yet… and become that person on the picture above – with free time to enjoy, money to make it happen and smile on your face that you DID make it happen!
