Updated: Aug 13, 2019
Before you seek back-pay from anyone else, I invite you to check yourself! YOU owe YOU!
Stop Robbing Yourself, Live Your Best Life!
I’ve attended many funerals and I’ve heard many eulogists speak about the concept of “the dash.” The eulogist typically reminds congregants that on the headstone or grave marker you will find two dates, the date of birth and the date of passing. However, what’s most important is “the dash.”
That dash represents the time you’ve been given to live your life and how you spend it. We are all entitled to a great life. The pursuit of your best life is a personal decision. Don’t miss that, you have to make a conscious choice to pursue a great life, then do the work!
The majority of people who live great lives want a certain quality of life and they work until they get it. This brief read is for those of us who desire to live our best lives and are willing to do the foot-work until we see the manifestation of everything we desire.
After surveying clients, doing plenty of research, and pursing my life’s endeavors, I’ve noted 10 things that we commonly deprive ourselves from that could potentially hold us back from living our best, motivated, purpose-driven lives. Are you ready to thrive? Let’s dive in!
Ten Things You Owe Yourself, Right Now:
1. THE DESIRE TO LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE:
Desire is the sense of longing for a particular outcome. To obtain anything, the idea must be planted in your mind first. To live your best life, plant the idea in your mind and on your heart, eventually it will happen! Your thoughts will influence your efforts and actions.
2. A MINDSET OF EXCELLENCE:
Focus! With an excellence oriented mindset, you will strive to accomplish things in alignment with your thought process! Be great!
3. THE ABILITY TO BE THE MASTER OF YOUR TIME (TIME MANAGEMENT):
How can you accomplish anything with poor time management? Set time sensitive goals, be a good steward of your time, and thrive! Treat time as if it is a currency; currency invested wisely yields results.
4. THE SPACE TO CREATE AND INNOVATE:
This mental, physical, and spiritual space is necessary. Demanding the space you need to think, create, and innovate is a type of freedom that you will appreciate. This will keep your inner visionary alive!
5. THE LIBERTY TO BE A BOSS:
Having the life you desire calls for you to be an empowered individual. There will be a number of things that you will have to gain control of internally and externally. Bosses have positive traits that are vital to living your best life such as prioritizing the main things, implementing systems of change, and leading toward completion. Make boss moves, get stuff done and do it right!
6. A CRAVING FOR LOVE- LOVE FOR YOURSELF, LOVE FOR OTHERS AND DESIRE TO BE LOVED:
Love is a feeling that draws from frequencies such as a genuine interest, confidence, passion, and commitment. Having love for someone or something will trigger emotions that can positively impact multiple areas of your life. When you love someone or someone loves you, a special bond is created that requires work to maintain. When you love something, you tend to care for it, protect, or nurture it. No matter the route you choose, the right type of love can fuel your happiness.
7. AN EXPECTANCY OF INCREASE:
The Law of Attraction teaches us that when we focus on positive things, the results we yield tend to be positive. When we possess an internal expectation of increase we tend to attract increased energy in everything we set our mind to.
8. THE AMBITION TO MOVE FORWARD (ONE MOVE WILL INSPIRE OTHER MOVES):
Think about this, when a baby learns how to walk and gets really good at it, they forget that they ever crawled. When you realize that moving forward is instinctive, necessary, and gratifying you will make a habit of taking the necessary steps and leaps of faith to move closer to your desired places in life.
9. A LONGING TO FORGIVE YOURSELF AND OTHERS:
Forgiveness is one of the elements that you need to be able truly move past the past. We’ve all had our share of problems and isms, some brought on by others. Sadly, some hurt has been self-inflicted. To truly evolve from the former to our future, we must learn how to forgive ourselves and others taking the critical lessons from each experience.
10. AN OUTLOOK OF GRATEFULNESS:
When you possess an attitude of gratitude, you tend to see more of the benefits and blessings in things that take place. When you see the brighter side of things, you are the ideal candidate for more positive activity to take place in your life. Gratefulness is one of life’s magnets that will attract positive energy and results.
Please remember the day is coming where people will speak about the type of life you lived. Make it your personal mission to live your best life RIGHT NOW! I promise, others will take note and will be inspired to live their best life as well. You owe yourself a few things; get them, all of them! It’s time for you to be intentional about living your best life!
