I’ve been on a journey over the past few years to live a more passionate life, one that incorporates my core values of love and connection, lifestyle freedom & business success, fitness and well-being, fun and adventure, and contribution and legacy into my life in a holistic, balanced, and healthy way. It hasn’t been easy, but I’ve learned a few powerful strategies that work for me. Each day I strive to accomplish these goals no matter what:
- Meditate and honor my soul. I spend 22 minutes in the morning after waking in meditation: simply sitting up in bed, listening to the stillness, and breathing. Everything flows better in my life when I’m consistent with my meditation practice.
- Workout and honor my body. I typically hit the gym for weights and cardio every day. Sometimes I dare myself to try exciting fitness adventures like kickboxing and trapeze. Even taking a walk can make a world of difference. Honoring my body by giving it something productive to do and achieve has truly transformed my life.
- Connect with someone I love and honor my heart. One of my highest values is connection. Whether it’s a phone call with a family member, a meaningful conversation with a friend via text, or sharing ideas over lunch with a colleague; connecting on a heart level fills me up so much and is one of my favorite things to do.
- Take a step in the direction of one of my dreams and honor my ambition. I’m motivated by possibilities and results. I see the possibilities when I visualize what I want. In order to get results, I have to take action in business and in life. So, I take at least one action daily toward my dreams. On a really productive day, I’ll take massive action toward several goals.
- Inspire someone and honor my mind. Facebook is one of the tools I use to nurture and nourish my mind. I love reading friends’ posts and get so inspired by what they’re doing and creating in the world. I also like to challenge myself to be open and vulnerable by sharing my own ideas and experiences. Hearing from friends and Fans that my posts make a positive difference in their day means the world to me.
- Have fun and honor my spirit. Life is meant to be fun. Each day I do something that enlivens me and/or makes me laugh: watching a funny video, riding my bike along the ocean at sunset, surprising someone with a thoughtful gift, planning an adventure with a friend, reading a powerful book, dancing around the house, eating in a unique restaurant, and many more!
Life is more fun and fulfilling when I align my intentions, time, and energy with my values and take action daily. When I’ve accomplished these goals by the time I lay my head down on my pillow at night, I know that I’ve given it my all and set myself up for maximum success, life balance, and well-being. Doing so helps me stay focused on what really matters in my life and gives me the energy and passion to fully go for my dreams and make a difference.
