What Does It Take?!

I often mention “Living life the fullest”, but what does it really mean? Living up to our potential. Meaning, doing all the things we hope to do someday NOW instead of putting them off for some time in the future. I personally don’t want to wait to feel fulfilled. Living our dream life also means that as soon as we reach a goal, we continue to set the bar higher. It is a commitment to ourselves and what really matters to us. I am always asking myself what is working, what is not, where can I get better and I try to act accordingly. To create the life you want, you must be willing to change, to grow and to do what it takes. Make that commitment with yourself. So what does it take to live our best life? STRENGTH. Being our best self often means doing things that are difficult and challenging, breaking bad habits, creating new habits, getting out of our comfort zone, taking risks, being bold. It’s believing in ourselves and never giving up. COURAGE. Creating the life we desire sometimes means making major life changes. Which may include walking away from friendships and other relationships that weigh us down. It takes courage and strength to not care about what people think and to create the life that feels amazing even if others are judging our actions. SELF RESPECT. Living our best life begins with appreciating the fact that we are alive. Realizing that every single day is a blessing and an opportunity to build the life we desire. Appreciating life means respecting ourself and our body. To want to be healthy, to feel confident, to be in a positive state of mind at all times so that we can enjoy life and achieve our goals. ORGANIZATION. Being the best we can be also takes organization. I find that setting goals and living a balanced life is much easier when I take the time to plan certain things out and write them down. From daily to-do lists to life goals, getting organized has a huge impact on our ability to achieve our goals. FAITH. Controlling what we can control, planning things but not everything, and allowing the rest to happen the way it’s supposed to. Living our best life is to live in the moment, it’s to let life surprise us. Because it truly has a magical way of doing things!
