Freedom To Live Life By Design making choices to reach your goals now.
According to my calendar it's a Bank Holiday weekend in the UK. A day created by the Bank Holidays Act of 1871 and 1875 when it was decided that the mighty financial institutions would close for four different working days each year allowing staff a break from work to spend time with their families and recharge their batteries, but is that true for entrepreneurs like you and me?
I know for a fact that I have freedom to live life by design though I do have to admit it hasn’t always been easy and I guess there will be times in the future when challenges will show up to test my level of commitment to live life by design.
On my journey I had to stop what I was doing and take a complete and down to earth look at how I was living life, a look at what and why I was doing certain things including my health and the way I ran my business.
So, let me explain how you too can begin living life by design. This is how you can do it.
First, of all stop and take a realistic look at what you do and why you do it. Don’t fall into the trap of excuses that you; ‘have to do X’ or, that you don’t have a choice! You do have a choice because if you think about it, every moment of your waking day is all about the choices you make. So, all you need to do is to get clear on what you want and then formulate a plan that works for you to achieve those goals. It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it.
Now that you’ve taken the time to look carefully at what you do and why you do it write it down. The simple action of writing down what thoughts and ideas are floating around inside of your head will help you to get clear on what you really want. By that I mean whenever you say something and declare you want a specific outcome you’ll be saying exactly what you mean. So, when you verbalise that you can’t do something, is it true what you are saying? Is what you can’t do a necessary part of your daily habitual routine which prevents you from living life by design? Go on be true to yourself and dig deep for your answers. Your lifestyle depends upon you knowing why and what makes up tick and contributes to your daily routine.
Once you are clear on what you don’t want and what you do want you’ll be able to formulate a realistic plan to get what you want.
Another element of your journey to a lifestyle by design is to think about how many statutory bank holiday breaks and relaxation time you take off while building your empire? Remember every action you take working on your business you also need to factor in breaks, all of which are part of living life by design and crucial to your core belief system.
Simultaneously as you go about designing your lifestyle time passes. There will be challenges that show up from time to time, so you must prepare for such situations and allow yourself the opportunity to live life by design.
Find your fate and remember you are always at the beginning of something exciting.
