If you had a magic wand to make anything happen, what would your life look like? I am here to let you know that you have the power (inside of you already), so let’s get going on creating a life that you love, designed by you, just the way you want it to be.
What do you want to do? What dreams do you want to turn into a reality? I truly believe that there isn’t anything we aren’t able to do. Here are my five steps to creating a life by design:
Know what you want.
The first step to creating a life designed by you starts with having a clear idea of what you want. This doesn't have to be your life spelled out to the “T” for the next 5 or 10 years, but you need a general idea of your long-term and short-term goals. (this will change over time as you accomplish them and your desires transform.) After all, if you don’t know what you want in life how do you expect to get there? It would be similar to driving to an unknown destination without a map and hoping you somehow end up in the right place. Instead, take time to really think about what you want for yourself, getting as specific as you can. Ask yourself: If there was nothing in your way, no limitations or fears, nothing holding me back, what would I want my life to look like? (this is the life we're going to create.)
Describe your vision in detail.
Once you are clear on the life you want to design, the next step is to create a clear vision and picture of what that is. This is similar to your first step in determining what you want but here you’re going to dig a little deeper. If on your list you wanted to buy a house here I want you to get as specific as you can and set an ideal time frame. How big is the house, where is it located, when do you want to accomplish this? Repeat for each item. (Don't forget there is nothing in your way, no limitations or fears.)
I have visualized what I wanted in my life before it has happened. This may seem a little foreign but once you start understanding this concept and really feeling and tasting yourself already having what you want, you will naturally start to visualize your wants as a way to move you towards bringing these outcomes in your life. The problem is that most of us visualize the life we don’t want by imagining the worst outcomes of things or worrying about the future. Each dream is going to require that you start visualizing yourself already having what you want without anything standing in your want for all things you are wanting to bring into your life.
Create an action plan.
“A goal without action is a mere dream.” This is the most important step now that you know what you want and have visualized yourself having it already. Don’t get caught up in how far you are, instead create an action plan on how to get there. (This one of my greatest specialties - I don't believe there is anything out of reach and I plan how I'm going to make it a reality.) Whenever I see something I want, a new purse, house, job, car (it can be anything!) After completing the first three steps I am on to my action plan detailing and mapping out how am I going to get there. Small steps each day equal success, but you have to be making those steps daily if you’re wanting to get to your destination.
Stick with it.
The truth is, I’ve been told "no" way more than I ever heard yes. People see some of my accomplishments and think they happened easily or on my first try. That’s far from the case. I had to "un-hear" the word no and never accept it as an answer, I had to learn how to not quit when it got hard and realize that hurdles are part of the journey, so expecting them rather than running from them have helped to stay on course.
You have the power to create the life you’ve always dreamed of, now let’s make it happen.
Now for the BIG NEWS! Without this process, I don't believe I would be where I am today and wouldn't be able to accomplish all the dreams I have yet to achieve. I want to teach you this method to help you realize that you not only can make your dreams a reality but you have the power to do so regardless of how hard you believe it to be. I couldn't be more excited to announce my new e-course coming soon that will take you on an in-depth journey through the steps to create the life you have always wanted to live.
