living an extraordinary lifeCan I be brutally honest with you?

Nothing in life can be compared to the search for an extraordinary life.

We all want to live in abundance, love, work, and speak with greater confidence and courage.

But that rarely happens.

Most of the time, we find ourselves trapped between good ideas or tragedy where it feels like almost everything is falling apart.

Let’s face it.

At some point in your life, you’ve experienced certain setbacks in your relationship, finance, career, or self-esteem.

Sometimes, it might even be a struggle to get out of bed each morning, or get your life in shape, or have a definite plan that will progress you to a rich and abundant life.

Sound familiar?

If this rings a bell, you’re not alone.

There are a lot of times when we all get stuck in a rut and try to gain clarity, at least I can vouch for the fact that I do. And at such times, we try to make excuses or become our worst critics.

The truth is you’ll never gain clarity and advance toward an extraordinary life if all you do is become a jerk or make excuses. You need a definite life plan to help you progress rapidly, find your sense of self, and feel more control. Happy and Free!

The good news?

I’ve found some principles which, if you’re willing to put into practice, will help you experience amazing things, gain the inner strength to stop the doubts and start believing in yourself and your abilities.

In a real sense, you’ll advance from zero to a super-abundant life and wake up the inner genius, leader, rock star, athlete, artist, and change agent for whoever is inside of you.

Principle 1: Knowing who you truly are

If you ask most people who they are, the answer you’ll get in return is something like:

I’m Jenny, an American, a university graduate, and so on.

But that’s just merely a secondary definition of self. And most people focus so much on this that it almost outweighs the true essence of their being.

I want you to consider this for a moment, who are you? 

What’s the true essence of your being?

Are you the one that gets trapped in what others think of you?

Or are you the one that likes to keep yourself to yourself, so you don’t have to deal with the opinions of others?

The definition we have of ourselves most of the time will determine our pattern of living.

If you know yourself to be someone that responds positively to challenges, has a definite vision, or makes a great impact in other people’s lives; your subconscious mind will work to produce that version of you in reality.

You begin to see yourself doing things you only thought were possible in your dreams.

On the other hand, if you see yourself as filled with insecurity, fear, and no life purpose; well, take a moment to think about the outcome and fill in the gaps.

But personally, here’s who I think you truly are:

You’re  an authority, created to be fruitful, be in control, and be disciplined, that is your life and what human nature expects you to manifest.

So starting from this moment, I want you to get a sheet of paper and reflect on your life based on these three core values:

Am I an authority and in charge of my life?

Am I fruitful and making an impact in the world right now?

Do I make use of my opportunities and work to become the best in the field of my expertise?

Take a moment to answer the questions above, write your results on the sheet of paper.

And if you’re not satisfied with the answers you provided start thinking about what you can do to make some changes in your beliefs and begin taking some steps to create a different concept of yourself.

Principle 2: The greatest force that drives you towards an extraordinary life

Man is controlled by his inner mind, not by external forces.

Your inner mind is amazingly creative and everything you need to succeed or amount to a life of abundance is inside of you. What you train your mind to do is what you’ll manifest in the outer world.

The bitter truth?

You can’t be greater than your thoughts.

So the question is, how do you use your mind to respond to life?

When tragedy struck, was your mind programmed to respond positively or negatively?

Take a few moments to reflect on this.

And here’s a new habit for you, guide and program your mind positively for out of it are the issues of life.

When you think positively about a situation, you instantly begin to create room for greater possibilities and for stretching your abilities beyond anything you believe you are currently capable of.

Principle 3: Getting wisdom

your thoughts are creating your life

One of the greatest ways to improve your life is to apply your inner wisdom to everything.

Because the truth is, all you need is within you.  Allow your inner wisdom to awaken your gifts and talents.

It takes wisdom to find knowledge in every inner word that is speaking to you and then to allow your intuition to interpret that information.

You can help this process along by finding a block of time each day, go to a silent place, and gently listen to your mind, and connect to that deepest part of you, wherein lives the inner wisdom that created you.

When you’re in the middle of a conversation, be slow to judge and let your words be few.

It takes wisdom to become the leader in your field and gain the abundance of life.

So if you ever want a chance in hell of living an extraordinary life, practice listening to your inner wisdom.

Principle 4: Decision and goal setting

A disciplined and well-planned life is an extraordinary life.

Frankly speaking? You can’t fulfill your dreams without the self-discipline to set important goals.

Goal setting is the map of your life, a definite plan that leads to all your dreams, and self-discipline is the key to taking maximum action in order to experience the desires of your heart.

So how do you discipline yourself to power through your goals?

Use deadlines.

Use self-discipline to fulfill the promise of your dreams.

If you’re working on a book, set a goal of how you’re going to complete this project and set your deadline so that you can discipline yourself to power through.

Remember, you can’t achieve your life goals without adopting a disciplined mindset.

Principle 5: Finding something to live for

Let’s be sincere, it’s not enough to just live, there must be something that you’re living for.

So the question is, what do you live for? Why are you doing everything you do?

What are your core values? What are the yearnings of your heart and soul?

Figure it out yet?

If you have a clear goal, it instantly becomes a beacon to light your way…and helps you move forward.

It gives you hope and clarity. So it makes your job easier to figure out.

Get a sheet of paper, title it – ‘What I Want to Live For’, then list your main core values.

Meditate on each one every day and determine you can achieve them.

Because you see, life is nothing but a daring adventure.

The meaning you give to your life is what you’re known for, in fact, it’s who you’ll become.

So give life a positive meaning by finding the depth of who you are, find the greatest force that drives you, find the wisdom to live, then use decisions, self-discipline, and goal setting to achieve what you live for.

Do this now and you’ll be on a road to an extraordinary life.

What are your thoughts on this?

We’d love to hear what you think, what an extraordinary life looks like to you? 

And you never know, you might be the one who triggers an aha for another soul seeking to live an extraordinary life.
