5 Ways To Live Life On Purpose

Living in a fast-paced world, it’s easy to get caught up in a vicious cycle of life’s distractions.

From chasing the next dollar, to dropping kids off to school, and racing between personal and professional obligations, while making it all look easy.

Sometimes, you are moving so quickly that you don’t take the time to slow down and “smell the roses” or take inventory of what’s happening in your life. In order to remain loving, happy and healthy, there needs to be a balance. Choose to live your life on purpose and not just simply drift through daily tasks and routines.

Here are 5 way to live your life on purpose:

 

1. Learn to say no!

There are many of you who may feel like you are letting people down if you say ”no” and assert yourself. Perhaps you are the person in your family or at work that everyone relies on. With this type of expectation, it can create pressure on you to overextend yourself.  Learning to stand in your truth and honoring your feelings is your right and choice to do what is best for yourself.

“The best way to predict the future is to create it.” – Peter Drucker

2. Make time for YOU!

Taking care of others can be a very rewarding experience. The self-less act of giving is remarkable. However, there are times when that same care must be provided and given to you. It is acceptable to admit that you need a break or need help. This doesn’t mean you are selfish, but that you include self-care in your daily health and wellness plan. Whether it’s getting up early to meditate, going for a walk or heading to the gym, this quality time will re-energize you and prepare you for the day ahead. It is very important to make yourself a priority, as when you feel better, you will be better to those around you.

 

3. Set the clock

You may be thinking of an alarm clock that is set to wake you up for work or other activities. But, I am referring to a “mental clock”. Too often, we are putting too much time and energy where it isn’t deserved or surrounding ourselves around those who are mentally draining. Start deciding to put a time limit on those situations or people who are not adding value to your life. It is acceptable to recognize that there will be times when you will have to re-assess relationships in order to grow. Pay attention to life’s signals and decide when it’s time to move the clock forward.

 

4. Choose happy

Life is what you make it. You can either let it steer you in any direction or you will choose to live it the way you want. Now, there are moments where this may seem impossible or very difficult. It is all about your perspective. You can decide to let life’s setbacks keep you down or you can take each day as an opportunity to learn new things. It will not be easy, but you can decide at any time which way you want to go.

Create-yourself

5. Getting past GO!

You now have the confidence to set boundaries and say “no” when it’s necessary. As you learn to make time for yourself, you will begin to re-evaluate all situations and things in your life and set the clock on those that don’t bring out the best in you. The choice to be happy becomes easier, while you develop guidelines to move your life to where you want to be.

 

Take each day as it comes and decide how you will handle it, don’t let it handle you. You can achieve great things, but only if you believe that it is possible. Go forward with excitement, energy and passion, and you will see amazing results. This new direction leads up to you going after what you want and living your life on purpose.
