What is a Life by Design?
A Life by Design is a life that’s consciously shaped, a life where you decide where you’re going, who you want to be, and then you make it happen.
Many people live like marionettes. They let society, peers, work, addictions, history, and many other factors pull the strings of their lives. They never try to shape their lives because they learned to believe they have no control over their destiny. Since they believe it, it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. They become cause and effect mechanisms, living in a reactionary state instead of a proactive state.
How can you live in a reactionary state and consciously shape your life?
The truth is, we are all masters of our destiny. We all have the power to choose the meaning we give the events in our lives. The meaning we give things shapes us and shapes our lives because it’s our personal reality. Our personal reality shapes the thoughts we have, the choices we make, and the actions we take. That shapes our destiny.
Some people would rather let other things—people, events, chemicals, society, their personal history—design their lives. They’d rather sit back and say, “It’s not my fault. Look at everything that’s happened to me. That’s what caused me to be how I am.”
But not you!
You’re reading this. That means you’re working to consciously create your life. You believe you can shape your destiny!
One of the first things I learned when I started on the path of personal transformation was that I needed to have an idea of who I wanted to become. So I spent a few days writing a personal blueprint, a master design for my life. Then I read that to myself every morning and night. I read it out loud and focused on how I’d feel when it was reality.
In time I discovered that I was becoming the person I wanted to be. I still have areas I’m working on. I still make mistakes. And in truth, as I step up to every new level of awareness, I discover ways I can continue to be a better person. Then I take those lessons, learn from them, and grow.
A Life by Design is a process. It’s a journey of evaluating where you are and growing to where you want to be. Then reaching your goal and discovering how much more you’re capable of. Yes, it’s work. Yes, it can be uncomfortable. And it’s a wonderfully fulfilling process!
