Are you really living the life you want to live?
Most people aren’t. It’s just a fact. They feel something is missing. They’re in dead-end jobs, or dead-end relationships, and stay in the same dead-end mindset instead of making the tough decisions and bold moves needed to create the life that they really want.
Do you have a vision of where you want to be? Do you have the discipline to see it through? You might have to dig deeper than you ever have before, but a better life is possible if you follow these five steps I designed to help people just like you.
Take this advice. Give it a year. Look back at where you started. I bet you’ll be shocked by how far you’ve come. Let’s start at the beginning.
#1. Do a life audit
You can’t create a reliable roadmap of where you want to go if you don’t know where you’re starting. A life audit is a critical kickstart to finally changing your life.
It’s time to get brutally honest with yourself. Where are you mentally, emotionally, professionally, financially, and physically? What do your relationships look like? What are your beliefs about these things? What are your beliefs about yourself?
Now, what are the changes you could make that would make the biggest difference in most aspects of your life? This is where things can start to change.
#2. Do a mindset audit
Here’s something I hope wakes you up: Successful people don’t act like victims. They don’t. Bad things are always going to happen, but what can you learn from those things? What lessons can you use to make the next iteration of yourself stronger and more successful?
Your mindset really does set the stage for almost everything in your life. A negative mindset makes everything you interact with negative, too. I’m not suggesting that you look at the world through rose-colored glasses, but I will remind you that what you believe is what you’ll achieve. Remove the negativity from your life and embrace the lessons of experience.
#3. Create a vision
What is your sense of purpose? What does your life look like? What does your business look like? Be as grand and as specific as you possibly can be. This vision of yourself is your sense of purpose, and it’s crucial to changing your life for the better.
You can’t do big things without a clear sense of where you want to go. Having a vision for your life is motivating, it helps you take action, and it will help you prioritize your goals so you can achieve them more efficiently.
#4. Work on yourself. Every. Single. Day.
Achieving goals means you need to be consistent. Thinking and dreaming aren’t going to help you get anywhere. Having a vision is great. Creating a massive plan of action based on that vision is better. Working on that plan every single day is the best, and it’s a surefire way to get what you want out of life.
No one else is going to do this for you. You have to plant the seeds, tend the garden, and till the soil. Sure, it’s hard work, but the best part is, you also get to enjoy the fruits of your labor.
#5. Change your environment
You need to be really picky about how you spend your time. You need to be really picky about where you spend your time. You need to be especially picky about who you spend your time with.
What makes you think that if you spend your time with broke, directionless, and unmotivated people, that you’re somehow going to be different? Like attracts like, and though it might feel difficult, you need to separate yourself from people who are going nowhere and start connecting yourself with the people who are where you want to be.
Imagine where you’ll be in a year
This insight might seem simple, but see how it feels to live it. It will take discipline and a higher level of belief than perhaps you’ve ever had before. I can assure you, however, that a year after implementing this plan, your life will finally be what you want it to be. Don’t give up. Stay motivated.
