The A-B-C’s of Life’s Purpose

If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...

  • To Love and Create – this is the essence of life. But to be able to create the life you want, you must first be able to love the life you have. When you do, you are then able to enjoy a true sense of freedom and inspiration while engaged in the exciting process of creating the life of your dreams. If you follow these A-B-C’s of Life’s Purpose, you’ll be well on your journey already.

    Accept Responsibility (For Everything)
    From the economy to that difficult person in your life, to the speed of traffic during your daily commute—the external events and circumstances of life are often out of our control. Although we can’t always control what happens to us, what we choose to think and do about it is our responsibility.

    This is a profound truth, that it is not what happens to us that determines our quality of life, but it is how we choose to respond to what happens that creates our experience of life—good or bad. Even if a circumstance is not your fault, how you deal with it is always your responsibility.

    The moment you Accept Responsibility for everything in your life, is the moment you have the power to create anything for your life.

    Be Grateful (For Everything)
    People often defend their negative attitude by claiming, “I’m not negative, I’m just realistic. Consider this: How is it any more “realistic” to focus on, think and talk about all that is wrong in your life, than it is to focus on, think, talk and Be Grateful for everything that is right in your life? Hmm…

    When you choose to focus on the positive in your life and Be Grateful for everything, you have the power to create happiness at any moment of your life.

    Commit To The Process (Without Being Emotionally Attached To the Results)
    Every result (goal/dream/etc.) that you desire is preceded by a process. If you desire improved health, it must be preceded by a process of healthy eating and exercise. If you desire financial independence, it must be preceded by a process of accumulating, saving, and investing your money.

    Most of us are emotionally attached to our results, and we base our level of commitment to each of our processes on how we feel or how things are going. Poor results usually lead to feeling discouraged or frustrated, both which hinder our desire and confidence to keep working towards our dreams.

    The secret is to define the process required for each of your goals, then live everyday committed to those processes, and don’t worry about your short term results. The process always eventually produces the result, you just have to stay committed and never give up!

    You can learn to truly, authentically and unconditionally love the life that you have, and once you do you will find a sense of true joy and fulfillment in creating the life of your dreams. Your pursuit of a better life will no longer be out of fear of not having or being enough. You will be free from the stress and pressures that may have weighed on you in the past, so that you can begin genuinely loving the life you have while you are engaged in the exciting process of creating the life of your dreams!
