Design Your Life

Message/Experiment of the Week:

Have you designed the life you want? As the new year approaches and you work on setting new goals, this may be a good question to ask yourself. In the video below Alex Heyne shares how you can design a life you love and then make it a reality. It involves three steps:

1. The Design

2. The Daily Habits

3. The Follow Through

Start out by asking yourself what the coolest thing that could happen in the next year would be, and what would you need to do to make that a reality? By creating a vision of what you want you’ve taken the first step toward making it a reality because all things are created twice: first mentally and then physically. Next figure out what you need to do daily to make that design a reality. The power of daily focus is incredible. If you can focus an hour on something every day you can make almost anything a reality. Third, you need to hold yourself accountable if you don’t do the daily habits you have committed to. If things aren’t working for some reason, ask yourself what you need to change and come up with ten ideas to fix the problem. Then implement the best ideas until you get back on track. Lastly, you have to truly commit to making your dream life a reality. If you don’t, it won’t happen. You need to be willing to stick with it day in and day out and face the sweat, blood and tears it might involve. In the end you will be happy that you lived life on your own terms instead of leaving it to fate.

For an experiment this week, think of the top three goals you want to achieve in the next year and then commit to three daily habits you will do every day to make those goals a reality.

Quotes of the Week:

  • “The only person who succeeds is the person who is progressively realizing a worthy ideal. It’s the person who says, “I’m going to become this and then progressively works toward that goal.” Earl Nightingale

  • “If a person will spend one hour a day on the same subject for five years, that person will be an expert on that subject.” Attributed to Earl Nightingale

  • “1. Give yourself a definite goal. 2. Quit running yourself down. 3. Stop thinking of all the reasons you cannot be successful and instead, think of all the reasons why you can. 4. Trace your attitudes back through your childhood and try to discover where you first got the idea you couldn’t be successful – if that’s the way you’ve been thinking. 5. Change the attitude you have of yourself by writing out the description of the person you’d like to be. 6. Act the part of the successful person you have decided to become.” Earl Nightingale

  • “Work never killed anyone. It’s worry that does the damage. And the worry would disappear if we’d just settle down and do the work.” Earl Nightingale
