Because This Is Your Life

There is something that is very fascinating about being a human being. At first it may surprise you if you aren’t already aware of it.

It’s also something that you may have heard many times and possibly not paid that much attention to.

In fact, this actually plays a major part that’s involved in your ability to have the type of career you want and achieve the type of financial wealth you would love to have.

Think about it for a moment…

How many times have you said things like, “I want to have financial security”, “I want to do what I love most”, “I want to have more freedom so I can enjoy life more”…

But still find yourself going through everyday thinking, “I’m not making the money I want”, “I don’t have the financial security I want to have”, “I’m tired of feeling stuck and restricted in my life”…

Or perhaps you’ve also said things like, “I don’t know what I want”, “I don’t like my job and want to do something else”,

This now brings us back to that very fascinating thing about being a human being.

It actually involves two fascinating things.

The first is that you are unique.

The second and just as fascinating, centers around one of the most important questions you can ever ask yourself and that is…

“What do you value most in your life?”

1. What’s most important to you- Every human being lives according to their highest values. In other words, you live according to your highest priorities or the things that are most important to you. This also translates out to being the things you value most in your life.

The interesting part of all this is that most people will say they want one thing, such as “I want to have more money and financial freedom”, but what they’re saying is not showing up in their lives.

Why?

This may sound shocking, but the answer is because it isn’t something you value.

For example, if you’re saying that you want to have financial security and it’s not showing up in your life, the reason is because you don’t have a value on it and it’s not that high of a priority for you.

This also applies to your career or any area of your life.

So what can you do about this?

A good place to start is to listen to your languaging.

If you find yourself saying, “I have to”, “I’m supposed to”, “I’ve got to”, “I need to”, then that is a sign that these are things which are not your highest values or of a high priority to you.

On the other hand, if you find yourself saying, “I love to”, “I’m inspired to”, “I’m blessed to”, “This is what I’ve always dreamed of”, then you are living according to your highest values and what is important to you.

This very subtle yet simple strategy can immediately transform any area of your life.

But there’s more.

2. The two sided gift- Here’s something that most people are not aware of that is amazing. We live in a two sided world. What do I mean by this?

You live in a Universe (world) that involves having an equal amount of positive and negative, support and challenge, ease and difficulty, along with all of the other complimentary opposites. There’s no getting around this and it applies to every area of your life.

This is a gift you are given and once you become aware of it and use it, your life transforms in the way you want.

Why is this important and how can it help you?

If you seek more positive than negative, more support than challenge, more ease than difficulty, not only will you not achieve what you want, but you’ll actually attract the very things you don’t want.

Now of course I’m not telling you to go out and be negative and to look for challenges all the time and to always find difficult situations.

What I am saying is to use the negatives, the challenges, and the difficulties as feedback to help you achieve what you want.

This will especially help you when it comes to having the type of career that you want along with financial security.

If you perceive yourself as having more negatives, more challenges, and more difficulties in your life, then that is a clear sign of one of two things…

Either you’re not doing what is truly most important to you while trying to live according to what is important to someone else…

Or you’re trying to be one sided while looking for more positives, supports, and ease.

Remember, the negatives, along with the challenges and difficulties you come across in your life, are nothing more than feedback from the Universe to get you to live according to what is truly most important to you while helping you realize your authentic self.

3. The balance of power- The other question you want to ask yourself is, “How big do you want to play in the game?” What I mean by this is, how much success do you want in the areas of life most important to you?

In terms of your career and financial wealth, how successful and wealthy do you want to be?

Here is something that is very surprising…

Many people actually hold themselves back because they have a sub conscious fear of what it would be like to achieve higher levels of success and wealth. The reason is because in most cases they don’t want to deal with the higher levels of negatives, challenges and difficulties that come along with the higher levels of positives, supports, and ease.

This includes having people liking and disliking you as well.

Just know that as more people like you, they’ll be just as many disliking you. If you can’t handle 1000 people disliking you then don’t expect 1000 people liking you.

The main takeaway and vital point here is that you grow and achieve the level of success to the point of where you can embrace both sides (supports and challenges, ease and difficulty, positive and negative) equally…

The only way you’ll be able to do so is by living according to your highest values or what is most important to you.

And this is why it is very wise to ask and then answer the original question I mentioned earlier…

“What do you value most in your life”

…Because it will allow you to stay on track with your goals and as a result you have a very high probability of living an inspired life.

It will also allow you to realize the magnificence and brilliance of who you are along with the tremendous amount of value you contribute to the world with your uniqueness.

You are alive and in this world for a reason and that is…

To be the shining star that you are while helping others do the same.

So take the time today and every day to realize the truth of your magnificence and just know that you truly do make a difference in the world.
