This is your life!
And you want to live your best life possible. (We all do).
As I see it, your best life is built on two foundational elements:
- Becoming your best you; and
- Realizing your dreams
Achieving those two foundational elements, and therefore creating and building your best life, can be expressed in a simple formula – one that I am borrowing from Darren Hardy, but making my own; and by doing so am also walking my talk (as you’ll see further below). That formula is this:
Your Best Life
= EQUALS =
(which is infinite and limitless)
– MINUS –
(mental and physical, tangible and intangible, conscious and unconscious).
The biggest interference we all have is TOO MUCH NOISE! That noise, in all its different shapes and sizes – whether it be your own inner demons, fears, and insecurities, or whether it be other people’s or society’s rules, manipulations, lies, exploitation, or ignorance – that noise drowns out your greatest resource, asset, and blessing to living up to that potential and creating your best life, which is YOU!
All that noise drowns out, without you even realizing it, your own inner voice, wisdom, and truth.
Your ability to understand yourself; and therefore others. Your ability to truly, wholly, and unconditionally love yourself; and therefore others. Your ability to know, and live out of, your passion and your purpose; and therefore become your Personal Legend. Your ability to share that with others; and therefore make an impact, and effect change.
All that is yours. All that is within you. All that, is you.
A key then to living your best life, to living your truth, to realizing your dreams, and to becoming your best self is to STOP THE NOISE!!
Stop listening to what others think. Stop trying to please everyone else. And stop comparing yourself to anyone else.
Yes, you can learn something from everyone; but that doesn’t mean you have to or should listen to everyone. Start listening to your own clarity. It’s there. Your voice. Your dreams. Your desires. Your truth. Your life! No one else’s.
Trust Yourself! Be your own guru. Yes, learn from others, and be inspired by others; but your own wisdom, intuition, experience, heart, mind, and soul is your north star. It’s your only true and ultimate guiding light! In the end, you know what’s best for you!
Take the core principles, ideas, values, beliefs, and lessons that speak to you and then apply them and make them your own. Make them work in your life, with your own unique strengths, style and circumstances based on your own unique dreams, visions, and goals.
Become aware of, understand, and use BOTH your head and your heart. Learn when to go into your head and when to go into your heart, and listen.
Learn to know which emotionally heightened states to act on, and which to reflect on. The I feel good, I feel alive, I feel empowered, I feel strong, I feel aligned, this feels right and true states are your heart and soul speaking to you. Listen, and act.
“There are many things in life that will catch your eye, but only a few will catch your heart…Pursue those.” – Michael Nolan
The I feel angry, scared, small, betrayed, worthless, and unloved states are when to observe, allow space and time to defuse, and then reflect. Allow your head to speak, and listen so you may learn and grow.
Embrace yourself for who you really are and learn to harness your creative potential to direct the trajectory of your life. We all have that creative potential, and we are all the artists of our life.
You take your passions, your values, your beliefs, your experiences, and your circumstances – everything that makes you you – and you create your life out of that.
But you must develop personal accountability to do that, because that’s the bridge between your intentions, hopes, and dreams on one side, and actually manifesting, realizing, and executing them on the other.
Words can be extremely powerful. But, without the action to back them up, they become meaningless. Do what you say and say what you do. Love the life you live and live the life you love.
Passion is Love. And when you live out of your passion, when you seize your passion, when you are passionate about your life, and in love with life, you become limitlessly more creative, more inspired, more intuitive, more grateful, more giving, more resilient, more adaptable, more flexible, more able to hear and listen to your inner wisdom, more willing to learn and grow, and more empowered to realize the full potential that is you and your best life!
“And the only thing people regret is that they didn’t live boldly enough, that they didn’t invest enough heart, didn’t love enough. Nothing else really counts at all.” – Ted Hughes
