How to Create The Life You Want

How to Create The Life You Want

You may be like most people who want a different life from the one that they currently have, but you don’t know how to create the life you want. Even when some venture out to start down the path of creating the life that they want, if something goes wrong, they give up and retreat to their comfort zone. The problem is that people typically choose to stay in their comfort zones and complain about how unfair life is.

 

I am on my own journey of creating the exact life that I want for myself. I have been on this journey for over 10 years now. As you begin or continue on your journey, it is important for you to know that the things you want will change as you grow and change.

 

How to Create The Life You Want

 

There is only one way to create the life you want. That way is by making small, consistent changes. Life is not about making huge overhauls. Instead, it is about taking things day by day. Making one decision to take a step toward the things you want. For example, I decided that I wanted to lose weight. I calculated that I needed to lose at least 80 pounds to be the weight I was when I got married 7 years ago. 80 sounded like such a huge number, and it would be a long time before I hit that goal. So, I broke my goal down into 10 pound increments. Because I never had to diet before, I decided not to beat myself up. I started cooking healthier meals and snacking less, but on those days that I just wanted cake, ice cream, pizza, or cookies, I allowed myself to indulge. After a while, I ate less of the junk, because I didn’t feel restricted. I made even more and healthier choices. It has been a slow process, but I have lost 47 pounds so far.

 

Whatever it is that you want to change in your own life, you absolutely can. All you have to do is make a series of decisions that lead you to your goals.

This Is Why You Should NEVER Compromise

This Is Why You Should NEVER Compromise

Although I am as MAC as they come, I absolutely love that android commercial that says “Be together, not the same.” That message is so powerful, but unfortunately, so many of the people in our world don’t subscribe to that way of thinking. They constantly compromise their authenticity in order to make someone else happy. I’d like to believe that most people want to, but because of the pressure to “fall in line” or get left behind is so heavy, they end up being cookie cutters of everyone else.

 

Think about it…something happens in the news, and a lot of people don’t know where they stand on a certain issue. Then, some person speaking extremely loud and bold about their feelings posts a video, and suddenly people “know” what they think. Typically, they side with the person who speaks the loudest.

 

I know that I’m always the one going against the grain, but once again, I don’t subscribe to this way of life. In fact, I have been the opposite of everyone else most of my life. Of course, there were times, during my school days, when I felt the pressure to fit in…and believe me, I tried, but it NEVER worked out for me.

 

After a lot of years, some maturity, and revelation, I realized that I was never made to fit into those molds. I was supposed to be an odd ball. I tried to go with the flow and ended up compromising my integrity. I agreed to things that I shouldn’t have, and ended up in dangerous situations. I compromised my standards, and ended up in relationships that were toxic to me. Any of these sound familiar?

 

I spent the majority of my life fighting to freely be an individual, and now that I am 100% authentically myself, I could never go back to the robotic ways of the world. Below is why you should never compromise on who you truly are.

Why You Should Never Compromise

 

I. You will never reach true happiness.

 

If you ever compromise who you truly are, you will always feel empty inside, wishing that you led a different life, rather than being happy with the one you have. It may seem scary to be blatantly honest with yourself about who you are and what is holding you back from being public about it, but it is so freeing to get that part over with so that you can start living your real life.

 

II. You will never reach your full potential and find your purpose in life.

 

If someone else is telling you who to be, how to think, and how to live your life, you will never be able to spread your wings and to soar at the things you are supposed to do. Don’t let life and time pass you by living someone else’s reality. Live in your purpose, starting today.

III. You will never know how awesome you are.

 

One of the best things in life is being introduced to yourself, and completely knowing who you are. If you knew how unique and amazing you were underneath the opinions and dictations of other people, you would have taken control of your life a long time ago. You don’t have to compromise your integrity or your happiness for one other person on this planet. You deserve to be every bit of the person you are. You were designed to stand out and to be your best self!

 

Fight for you…don’t wait another second. You need yourself to be 100% authentic, and you need it to happen right now. Your future self will thank and love you for it!

 

Have you been living your life for you, or have you been compromising for other people in your life?

How to Change Your Life for the Better

How to Change Your Life for the Better

Are you interested in learning how to change your life for the better? If so, you are not alone. There are millions of people walking this earth, wanting a different life from the one they currently have. This is not a surprise, because people, in general, are insatiable, and always want something more. That is not a bad thing though. It is quite normal to want something different, because none of us were able to choose how, when, or where we were born. We definitely didn’t choose the families that we were born into. The surprising thing is that so many of those people don’t actually know that they can change their lives.

 

The truth is, you do not have to accept the life that was handed to you as the only way that you are supposed to live. You have the power to change your income, neighborhood, education, body, etc.

How to Change Your Life for the Better

 

1 Make a decision

If you truly want to change your life, you need to first make a decision to change. Set your mind on exactly what you want your life to look like. Be very specific. If you don’t know exactly, but you have an idea of what you want it to feel like, start there. Sometimes, we focus on certain things, because we believe that those things will bring about a certain feeling. If we focus on the feeling, we may even get there a lot quicker than if we were trying to obtain things.

2 Get Moving

Once you have decided on how to change your life, and you have a clear picture of what that looks like, start moving in that direction. If you want a better body, you should start exercising, or eating properly. Start making choices that support your desires. If you say that you want to purchase a new house or car, it’s counterproductive to continue making decisions that will put you in debt and make your goal seem even further away. This doesn’t have to be an overhaul of your life. Just take it one day at a time, and make decisions that will push you in the direction of your goals.
