10 Ways To Live a Fulfilling Life

10 ways to live a fulfilling life

Discover your purpose.

“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go and do that. Because the world needs people who come alive” Howard Thurman

You need to ask yourself a few simple questions.  Who are you? Why are you here? What is your Mission?

Everyone was put on this earth to do something amazing but if we don’t seek to find out what that is then we will never find it.

Having a purpose can do amazing things.  Some people believe that having a purpose can cure cancer.  Research Tom Laughlin to find out more about this.  It is also thought that the stress of living a fake life causes cancer.

Having Desire and Passion

How bad to you want it?  “Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire” If you want to become a rock star at anything you chose to do you have to want it bad.  Bad that it may drive you crazy at times.  The one who wants something the most will ultimately get that which he desires.

You also have to love what you do.  A combination of desire and passion is a key to living a full life.

Determination

Many people in the real estate investing business fail because they don’t keep pushing themselves.  They try and try for a few months and don’t have any success so they give up.  Everyone who is suppose to be successful goes through a testing period where they have to push and push in order to become rewarded with success.   Never let one little failure keep you from achieving your ultimate dreams.

Self Discipline

You have to be disciplined and get yourself in a routing everyday that will help you move towards your goals.   And by routine I mean pushing yourself to do new things and get out of your comfort zone.  We have to do things over and over again.  Never do something once and just figure that is good enough.  If you want to succeed in life you have to keep doing things over a

Positive Attitude

I believe that having a positive attitude is key to success.  Having a positive attitude rubs off on everyone around you.  No one wants to be around someone with a negative attitude.

I also believe that having a positive attitude and believing that you are the greatest is another key becoming successful at whatever you want in life.

Motivation

Know what motivates you toward success.  This is why I recommend that everyone write down their goals.  Know what you want to achieve and create an action plan of how you are going to achieve them.  Be outrageous with your goals, put down your wildest dreams in some of your goals.   Also be updating your goals, a year down the road we may not want the same things.   I recommend that you don’t just shove your goals into your desk.  Have them out and posted on your wall where you can see them.  Read them every day so that you know why you are working so hard.

Hard Effective Work

Success is not handed to anyone.  It is given to those who put in the time and energy to get it.  You have to push yourself everyday and work your ass off.  Do what brings in the most money.  Do not spend your day working hard doing mundane tasks that never bring you any closer to your goals and dreams.

Some people think that multitasking is a huge skill.  I say don’t do it.  It is best to put all your energy into one thing at a time.  This will make your more effective and you will do a better job.

At the end of every work day you should also prepare a to-do list for the next day.  This is important so you can keep on track and move towards your goals.  It also makes sure that you have things to do every day to help you stay productive.

You should have a sense of urgency in everything you do.  Do not put off your tasks.  Most people put off tasks till the last moment or put them off forever.  Stop the procrastination and do it right away.  If someone says hey, let’s meet up soon and talk about a new business, say to them lets meet right now.

Integrity-don’t do business with liars

You must always keep your word.  If you don’t keep your word people won’t trust you and will not want to do business with you simple enough.  Also don’t do business with people who don’t keep their word.  Distance yourself from those types of people.

Boldness and Risk taking

The world does not reward someone who does is not bold and does not take risks.  You have to just ask for what you want and don’t take no for an answer.  Do not be shy when it comes to what you want.

You should also take risks and never be afraid to fail.   You have to get out of your comfort zone.  You don’t grow by doing the same thing, the only way to grow is to try new things and have new experiences.

Energy

Everyone should be getting at least 7-8 hours of sleep per night.  It has been proven that with less sleep over time you cannot function at 100%.  You become less productive and have less motivation.   Also exercise is a must for anyone wanting to gain energy.   From personal experience I feel energized after every time I work out.  I also feel better about myself after every work out.  Any when you feel better about yourself it shows.  You have more confidence; you are more enthusiastic and just feel alive.

If you want to start working out I would recommend doing some light work outs for thirty minutes in the morning.   Jumping jaxs, Lunges, pushups, crunches and a few other simple things to start out, then you can move on to more intense working out.  Seek out a personal trainer to help you set up a program specific to your body type and goals.

    Great article Chris, I truely believe these are the formulas to live a successful fulfilling life. In the Bible, God stated “study to show yourself approval” basically meaning you will not fail if you study hard to achieve what your heart desires. This is encouraging advice and I will share with others!
