Don’t we all want to grow into the fullest and most authentic versions of ourselves?

When it comes to creating a successful life the place to start is with ourselves. As Shakespeare wrote, “To thine own self be true.”

Success in life can mean different things for different people.

But one thing that’s common to most people’s definition is the ability to be true to ourselves no matter what is going on around us. But in fact it’s impossible to be true to yourself if you don’t know what’s really important to you.

Sometimes when we create a BIG picture of how we want our life to be, we forget about the SMALL details that get us there. To avoid this pitfall it’s good to check in with yourself on a regular basis.

There’s 10 questions to help you stay true to yourself while your creating the big picture of your life. Read on and discover a daily practice to help you really get to know yourself!

Know Yourself: Ask These 10 Questions…

1. Am I Happy in this Moment?

Anytime is a great time to ask this question, because added up each moment becomes your life! Check in with this question as often as you can remember.

If the answer is YES, celebrate!

But if the answer is no, find something that will make you happier in that moment.

2. Is there Anything I Can Improve About Myself that Would Enhance My life?

This is a tough question to answer. Recognizing that something about yourself needs to improve may even bring up fear, sadness or regret.

But taking the time every once in awhile to do an honest self-inventory of your habitual behaviors and choices, allows you to identify areas for improvement and lets you make conscious choices that will bring more happiness into your life.

Try not to beat yourself up if you find things you would like to change.

Get clear about how you want to be instead and what needs to change to get there. The very act of creating the intention to change will move any fear, sadness or regret right out of your life.

3. What Do I Believe is Possible for My Life?

It’s been said that we can only have what we believe is possible.

You may discover that you don’t believe what you want is actually possible for you. Honestly answering this question can give you incredible insights into what may be in your way of getting what you want.

It’s also been said that a belief is simply something we often repeat to ourselves. Find a different belief that is more like what you want to have and then look for reasons why this is true.

Then make it a habit to repeat this belief more frequently than the one that is standing in your way.

4. Am I Comfortable with the Direction My Life is Headed?Choose Your Path - The Right vs Wrong Decision SQ

Change is the only constant in life. Our lives are constantly shifting and changing, so it’s important to check in from time to time and see if the direction you’re headed is still getting you to where you want to end up.

Asking this question frequently ensures that small adjustments can be made, instead of allowing much time to pass and then realizing that you’re in need of a major course correction.

5. What Do I Want More Than Anything Else?

Yes, this question might seem overly simple, but how many times do you actually stop and ask yourself this question and then really listen to your answer.

You might find that each time you ask this question a completely different answer occurs to you.

So, start asking. Stop and truly listen to your answer, and then identify small step towards getting it. You are worth it.

6. What Motivates Me?

Motivation is the fuel that powers our actions, our actions are what create the results we experience in life. To answer the question, what motivates me, take a look at your life.

When you accomplish something, identify what it was that motivated you to complete it. Watch when you get excited, what are you feeling excited about, that’s motivation.

You can also learn by discovering what your motives more when you didn’t take the actions that you said you would. If you set a goal, and then fail to achieve it, look at how you spent your time instead.

Identifying these motivations can be just as important as your ability to be true to yourself.

When you discover what truly motivates you, you are well on your way to creating a life you love.

7. What Do I Value Most?

Your values are the essence of who you are.

Getting clear about them what they are and then living in harmony with them is a guaranteed way to be the fullest expression of YOU!

8. What Kinds of Experiences are Most Important to Me?

You have to know what you want to experience to really go for it! Make a list of what’s important in each area of your life- family, intimacy, spirituality, community, profession, etc.

Spend some time each week focusing on ways you can experience more of what you want in these different areas.

9. What do I Appreciate Most about Myself?

This question is essential for creating a life you love. It’s very challenging to love your life if you can’t identify anything you appreciate about yourself.

Make a habit to notice and then celebrate success in your life, whether it’s accomplishing a goal or behaving in ways that are in harmony with your values.

Appreciation for who you are is an essential ingredient for appreciating your life.

10. What am I Grateful for?

Appreciating what you have in your life is just as important as appreciating yourself if you want to experience your life as successful. In fact, an attitude of gratitude is the most powerful force we knew of her bringing more of what we want into our lives.

If you want to live your fullest life, if you want to be happier in any moment, ask this question of yourself every day. When you’re in the process of being grateful you can’t help but feel good.

The more you are grateful for what you have, the more you will have to be grateful for.

Gratitude

They might be simple questions, but they can create profound results.

You are the only one that truly holds the key to achieving success in your own life. Make it a practice to ask the questions. Make a commitment to continue asking and answering them–and then acting on your answers.

The best way we found to do this is to write down what occurs to you whenever you spend time asking yourself these questions. Fixing your answers on the page helps you embed them in your consciousness.

Seeing them in print helps overcome any fear about the changes you want to make and adds excitement to achieving your goal of knowing yourself. After each answer, write down any actions you want to take that will help you experience success in that area.

These may seem like simple questions, but knowing your answers to them can create profound results in your life. Ask them, listen to your answers, and take action to bring on the successful life you want.

Then enjoy the results as you move closer and closer to achieving the success you want in life. We bet that along the way you’ll love the practice of being true to yourself!

So do you know yourself ?

“The trouble is, you think you have time” ~ Buddah

How frequently have you felt like you needed a “fresh start” or to begin a “new chapter” in your life?

We’ve all been there… a major profession change, a life-changing encounter, or most generally the start of the new year.

Everything is extraordinary toward the start. We’re energized and propelled however at that point, after only half a month, that fervor begins to get decrease. Also, remaining on track gets increasingly troublesome.

Would you be able to relate? This is normal, so don’t stress in the event that you can.

Today we need to put a stop to this cycle for the last time!
Great or great?

12 Steps To Creating A Truly Happy And Fulfilled Life

1. Write Down Your Goals

Take the time to do this one very important and crucial exercise.

Accomplish Goal on Calendar

What do you want to accomplish in the next 30 days? Don’t just think about it or talk about it, write it down!

Studies have shown that the simple act of taking the time to write out your goals will dramatically increase the likelihood of achieving those goals!

So write, write, write!

2. Let Go Of “What Was”

It’s time to let go of the past (just leave it behind).

Let’s face it, you can’t change the past. In fact, the past doesn’t even exist anymore. The only place it exists is in your mind.

Let it go. Learn the lessons, look for the silver-linings, and be grateful for what “is” today and what will be tomorrow… It’s impossible to “receive” anything new and great when you’re holding on to the negative stuff from the past.

So, like the Disney song …

3. Forgive

Are you holding on to any resentment, anger or regret toward someone? If so, it’s time to forgive, and again you’ve got to let it go.

The only person you hurt when you don’t forgive, is yourself.

Don’t let anyone rent space in your head.

Young couple forgive each otherWho knows why people do what they do or say what they say. Stop trying to analyze it and make it mean something it doesn’t. That’s just wasted energy.

Be the bigger person. Just forgive and move on.

Also sometimes, we need to forgive ourselves for something we’ve done or said. No one’s perfect. We all make mistakes and have done and said things we are not proud of – let it go (as per #2 above) and forgive yourself.

Choose to be the best person you can be, starting today.

4. Live “Outside” The Box

Don’t follow the “crowd.”

the steering wheel of lifeMost people are unhappy with their lives. Be courageous and follow the path to your dream life (not your parents’, friends, or even society’s dream life).

This is YOUR LIFE.  YOU are the one at the steering wheel of your life. Unless you allow them to be – DONT.

5. Enjoy The Journey

Why? Because the “journey” is your life!

Sometimes we focus so much on the end result or the “goal” we wish to achieve, that we are not even enjoying the journey it takes to get there.

If you’re really hating your journey, then maybe it’s time to make some changes in your life and/or your goals (see #1).

6. Fail Forward

Most people are afraid to try something new because they are afraid to fail. Remember, the most successful people on this planet failed way more than the “average” person. In fact, if you ask any super successful person, they’ll tell you how they failed A LOT!

Why did they become successful? Because, they never gave up.

Don’t ever let the fear of “failure” get in the way of living your dreams. If you fail, get back on that horse, brush yourself off and learn the lessons you need to learn. get back on the horse

Then adjust your path and move forward… always move forward.

7. Eat Healthy & Be Active

You only have this one body. Remember, you can’t trade it in for a new one. So treat it well…

Healthy eating - fruit salad and toastWhat you do to your body today has a huge impact on how long you live and the quality of life you will lead in the future.

Don’t wait until it’s too late. Start now.

8. Be The Most Positive Person You Know

be positive good vibes onlyThe words you use when you communicate with others reflects your thoughts on the inside.

Like Buddha said “What you think you become.”

So don’t get caught up in negative conversations or gossip with others.

In fact, stay away from negative people altogether.

As they do not elevate you or your life but are “energy drainers.”. Remember, negativity is contagious and toxic . It will be difficult to manifest great things in your life being exposed to that negative energy.

Like Oprah said, “Be responsible for the energy you bring into a room.”

9. Create Your Own “Circle Of Light”

Make it a priority that you will only hang out with great, positive and loving people. Sometimes it’s hard to find those people in your immediate social surroundings, if that’s the case, step “outside the box” and go find them.

friend circleYou can do that by joining a fun and positive “meetup” group that focuses on “inspiration” or on a topic that revolves around living your life positively.

It’s vital that you surround yourself with positive, highly evolved, loving people who elevate you.

10. Love More

Make it a priority to always come from a place of love.love symbol on the wall

Whether you are standing in the grocery line, stuck in traffic, or having a conversation with a co-worker, family member or a friend, coming from this love “state” not only affects how you feel, it affects how others feel around you too.

How do you do that? Simply ask yourself “If I were coming from a place of love right now, how would I act?” and then do that.

Sometimes it can simply be acknowledging another person with a big genuine smile, giving a compliment or just refraining from getting into a confrontation when you’re placed in a negative situation.

11. Go Within & Get Really Connected To “Source” (or the God of your understanding)

Simply be still, be present and go within.

Meditation is a phenomenal way to do that. There’s no better way to elevate your vibration, feel true inner peace and get the answers, solutions and guidance you are looking for.

habits

AND last but not least…

12. Focus On What’s Important

Sometimes we get so consumed on the little things or we are so focused on achieving a specific goal, that we neglect the bigger and more important things in our life. Often, we don’t realize that — until it’s too late.

So what’s important?

RELATIONSHIPS – that is the most important “thing” in our lives. Don’t neglect, ignore, or dismiss the people who mean the most to you.

They won’t always be there. Keep Connected!people-connected

Remember, life is short. Don’t find out the hard way to learn this lesson, like many people do.

We all go through tough times in our lives. Life is full of its ups and downs. For some of us, those down’s last a really long time.

For us, our health was bad and Nicky was out of work. But that time period (2015-2017) forced Nicky to learn how to bounce back and make a comeback in my life.

And now it’s been an amazing in the past year, where we’ve worked to help people to bounce from any setbacks, obstacles or challenges when it comes to their businesses.

Are you truly happy?
Do you even know what it means to be happy and what it takes to achieve happiness?
These are important questions for anyone who is seeking happiness to ask themselves. We try to live our lives to maintain my own happiness while trying my best to not cause unhappiness to anyone else.

What do you want out of life?

The most popular answer is “happiness.” When parents are asked, “What do you most want for your children?” the answer is “happiness.” Happiness is the goal that makes other life goals—like success, prosperity and relationships—feel meaningful and enjoyable. It’s official—the pursuit of happiness has sped up!
