Are you consciously designing your life? Do you really understand what that means and how to do it?
This matters because, in a time when online marketers are pitching their services or products, promising that they’ll give you the time and financial freedom you need to create your “life by design,” it is important for you to have an understanding of what designing your life actually looks like, and how to do it effectively.
The problem is that, while it sounds great in theory, most people don’t understand what it means to create a life by design, and they do not have the first clue where to start to make that happen.
For that reason, I’m going to share with you 5 steps for designing your life in a way that is both sustainable and wise.
Step 1: Get Clear on What You Want
At the core of designing your life is the question of what you actually want and what will help you to wake up excited to live every day. In order to achieve this, you have to get clear on exactly what you want.
It seems like common sense, right? Well, common sense isn’t always common practice.
We live in a society where people are overwhelmed with the inputs, thoughts, beliefs, and opinions of others. Not to mention, the environments we are routinely in impact our values, beliefs, and desires on a deep level.
Because of that, it becomes very easy to lose touch with who we are and what we want in life among all the noise.
That’s why seeking clarity is so important.
Clarity is foundational to designing the life you desire to live because without it, the desires and expectations that everyone else has for your life will take over.
In order to design your life, you have to break free from the stories of your past that have told you who you are and what you should want. The only effective way to do that is by seeking clarity.
