“You’re the designer of your destiny and the creator of your mess.” ~ Lisa Nichols, CEO of Motivating The Masses, Best Selling Author and Transformational Speaker
I love this quote because it highlights one very simple principle that if we master, will unlock success in every area of our life and business. That principle is that we are responsible for everything that happens in our life. Things don’t happen to us, they happen because of us! You were born a creator, it’s who you are. You’re the lead architect when it comes to designing the life and business of your dreams.
If you’re not happy with your life and business, guess what? You can change it. I know you’re probably thinking “that’s easier said than done.” That statement in and of itself will block your breakthrough and keep you chasing your dreams versus living them. To design your destiny and live your dreams, try these 3 simple keys:
- Be grateful for all that you have now: When you appreciate what exists in your life and business, you open the door to receive more. You may not understand or see how a particular challenge may be good for you. Learn to trust and believe that all problems, challenges and issues have a solution and know that they are simply a part of the journey.
- Decide what you really want and make a plan to get it: Get clear about what you really want out of your life. Write it down, design a plan to achieve all that your heart desires and work that plan each and every day. Decide that today is the day that you begin your new life. Even if you don’t know how all the pieces of your plan are going to work, decide what you want and the how will take care of itself.
- Focus on the plan and get moving: Don’t waste your time focusing on what you don’t want. That will only attract more of that into your life. Besides, you don’t get more time. Once it’s gone, it’s gone so you might as well use it to create a life and business that makes you happy. Instead of saying, “I don’t want…” change that to, “What I want is….”
You can have the BEST life has to offer, do the UNTHINKABLE, and be successful all at the same time. Imagine that. You CAN have it all, and then some!
