5 Steps To Design The Life You Want

Lately I have been busy reading a book, "Design The Life You Love" that totally touched my soul. While I was hunting for some interesting self-help and personal development books in the library, I stumbled upon this book. The title of the book looked so very attractive and interesting that I had to bring it home with me. I have just read few pages, and I'm already loving the ideas written by author Ayse Birsel that explains step-by step process of designing your life that you love.

Today's post is inspired by the book.

I really paused for a moment to think answers to these questions like; "how can I design the life I want? Am I doing everything that can lead me to the life I always wanted to live? I know we all have desires to live a large-size life- where we have everything, and just 'perfect.' But do you think we can have it all? And will that make us a happier person as a whole? If you're with me, "I would say 'no'." There's no such thing that's called a 'perfect life.'  Even if we get everything, we'll still have complains and comparisons. The day we learn to enjoy every small bit of life in happiness and inner joy (definitely), leaving behind all sort of loathed arguments about your inefficiently functioning life- we will begin to live the life we wanted.

Ever since I began this journey of change, I included two major components that I thought was important for constructing a good life: optimism and creativity. I decided that I will try to have more positive outlook towards my life, my problems, people in my life, and towards opportunities; that I never got or I had to miss many due to circumstances. And I took complete ownership of my life- good or bad! And creativity is my strength. I have always wanted to make my passion my profession. I started late, but I will not stop until I do it. I took my journey as; "creating something I love, and care for, making it happen that seemed impossible before!"

We all aspire to become famous, rich, successful, and wealthy. And everything begins by," seeing that it can be possible." When you believe in yourself, and believe in doing things that you want to do- that brings you maximum joy; you get everything in life.

I found these five steps helpful, to design the life I wanted. And I hope you find them useful too.
  1. Optimism.
  2. Don't waste time blaming and complaining.
  3. Pursue your purpose with passion and enthusiasm.
  4. Break your IDEAS into: how will you attract people, find resources, and create opportunities for yourself to make your idea go live.
  5. Time, money, and effort decides your success. See if you can start without any one of these?

I do little different things each day: productive as well as unproductive. I am not earning money to run the house; but I'm doing everything else that's required for a balanced purposeful life like; creating a beautiful peaceful living, a happy home, and helping myself and family to make the desired dreams come true. I know I'm far far away from where I want to be; but nobody said it can't be done! I completely believe in my dreams, and want to work really hard to make it happen.

"It's never too late to be what you might have been."
~George Eliot
