10 Simple Truths for Living a Life You Love

2010-05-12-SimpleTruths.jpg

Over the past six weeks, I have been conducting idea discovery sessions with fabulous individuals. These one-on-one sessions have illuminated 10 basic truths that I believe are essential for living a life you love. This list is not exhaustive; rather, it is a starting point from which you can create your own list. If one truth clicks for you, run with it! Write it on a sticky note and put it someplace where you'll be reminded of it daily.

  1. Produce, do not procrastinate.
  2. Manage your energy not your time.
  3. Perfection is merely a facade that steers you in the wrong direction.
  4. Personal innovation is the key to any type of life success.
  5. Thoughts precede actions, which precede change. Care + Commitment = Change. Commitment alone does not equal change. There is a personal component to all that we do.
  6. Now is everything. Perseverance is power. Inspiration is everywhere.
  7. All that needs to be known dwells inside your own heart. Tap into that knowledge within, and trust that knowledge. Be confident in yourself and your power to choose your own perspective. You have more power than you know what to do with in your life. Harness that potential, and your limits will know no bounds.
  8. Invest in yourself. Personal knowledge and self-discovery are invaluable. Don't limit your potential by limiting your personal treasury. You are your greatest ally and asset.
  9. From a place of clarity, you can move forward with freedom and creativity. Within clarity, there is no such thing as "stuck."
  10. We all hunger for a fulfilling life -- a life filled with meaning and purpose -- for ourselves and for the people around us.

What is true for you?

Right-Brain Business Plan e-Course

ANNOUNCEMENT: RIGHT-BRAIN BUSINESS PLAN E-COURSE BEGINS MAY 17th!!!

I recently completed this e-course by Jennifer Lee and immediately signed up to take it again, starting May 17th for 8 weeks. After completing the e-course, I re-designed A Beautiful Ripple Effect and completed a business plan for an idea that I generated during the course. My business, Style My Vision, just became a LLC. And that is just the beginning. The e-course gave me all the tools and confidence that I needed to dream big and turn those dreams into a reality. The e-course is almost so good that I want to keep it my little own secret, but that would be far too cruel!

The fun online course will guide you through a visual, creative, and accessible process to clarify your business vision, goals, and actions steps. You'll even make it through the traditional (a.k.a. "intimidating") parts of the plan like competitive analysis, marketing, and finances in a way that's creative, inspiring, engaging, and expressive (just like YOU!). This e-course is perfect for creative entrepreneurs, artists, health and wellness professionals, educators, coaches, designers, freelancers, writers, photographers, non-profit leaders or all-around creative souls wanting to make a positive impact with their entrepreneurial endeavors.
