How To Live A Life Worth Living
In your mind, what does “living well” mean to you?
Does that mean you have plenty of money to do whatever you want? Does that mean you push yourself to spend your time doing what you want? Does good living evoke an image of a beautiful car, a beautiful house and a luxurious holiday?
As they say, if you can dream it, you can do it. However, an overflowing imagination in itself will not be enough to lead you to what you want. You will also need to find support and take concrete action.
In order to live well, you will most certainly need to do things differently than you are doing now. Below, you will find a list of three points that will help you keep in mind this desire to live well when you have no idea how you will actually start acting.
Let’s do it! Let’s do it!
Learn how to live well… to live well!
If you have never lived well, it may seem like you are taking the plunge. But what if you could learn to live well? You can do it!
There are dozens, even hundreds of books, training and other information resources to help you and teach you how to get what you want. In fact, the entire personal development industry is based on the intention of helping others to live better than they do today.
For example: if you dream of making a lot of money, but right now you are scraping the bottom of the drawer, there are many excellent books, podcasts, and seminars that will help you learn how to make a lot of money.
Another example: if you dream of traveling around the world, there are hundreds of books, travel websites, and Youtube travel videos that will show you how to travel around the world, whether on a budget or in luxury.
The important point here is that if you really want something, there will always be a way to get it. You just have to learn how to get it.
Create a life full of experiences… and adventures!
Life is really just a series of experiences.
From some experiences, we learn and grow and others take us back. Other experiences make us feel great and others leave us stressed.
Instead of waiting for a great experience to come your way, create your own life full of experiences.
A life rich in experiences, these are the experiences that you yourself initiate from an objective to be achieved. In other words, you decide what kind of experiences you want and then you make it happen!
For example, if you are someone who particularly appreciates fine wines, create opportunities for yourself to get to know the different kinds of wines that exist. Visit the vineyards, participate in wine tastings and when you come out with a wealth of knowledge gained from experiences, plan a trip to visit the famous vineyards or take wine lessons from an internationally renowned expert.
A life full of experiences occurs when you are passionate about something and find the ways in which you can fully immerse yourself in that passion.
Creating a life full of experiences for yourself will allow you to live your life to the fullest.
Keep it simple
Living well does not necessarily mean doing MORE. On the contrary, living well requires cutting yourself off from your overwork habits and focusing your time and attention on the most important parts of your life.
The two main questions that will help you keep it simple are:
What do I really want?
If I were able to do everything, be everything I want or do everything I want, what would I do, be and have?
Now, look around and make a list of 25 things.
Then see if you can group them by categories. For example, if you write that you want to go to Venice, Africa, and China, you can group all these wishes under the category of TRAVEL!
The different categories that your list will then reveal to you will be the starting points on which you will have to focus your attention.
Focusing your attention will give you more energy to do the things you really want to do in your life because you will no longer scatter in all directions by doing things you don’t really want to do.
For maximum effectiveness, take only two or three things to focus your attention on over a given period of time and then, to these few little things, give it all!
You can live well. Decide what living well means to you, learning how to get what you want, creating a life full of experiences for yourself and maintaining a lifestyle based on simplicity.
And never forget it: “To meet the person of your dreams… Live a dream life.”
It’s up to you!
