Life Design Tips for Beginners
The journey to life design begins by clearly defining your ideal lifestyle.
Too many people today have no direction in life and are getting nowhere because of that. They are wandering through life, desperately trying to find meaning by spending time with random people, keeping themselves busy all day, pursuing goals they don’t really want to achieve, and indulging in their bad habits that give them comfort.
Luckily, you’re a decision away from living a completely different life. But you must first have an honest conversation with yourself.
Before the law of attraction can be part of your life, you must get familiar with the law of expectation. It’s similar, but can be considered the stepping stone to getting exactly what you want.
One of the worst things you can do with your life is to spend years going after one thing, just to realize that you never really wanted it in the first place.
Some people live by the standards of those around them and try to live in a way that will make others happy. In the end, they have regrets about not taking their own path, as they see other people can never be pleased and keep judging and criticizing even if you do everything right.
For a start, know that you deserve to have your own kind of happiness and success.
One of your missions in life is to create an enjoyable lifestyle, which will let you be your best self, do your best job, be good and help others too.
The law of expectation states that most of what you expect will happen, whether it’s negative or positive.
So before you begin attracting the things you want in your life, it’s smart to get rid of the ones you don’t like that much. And, most importantly, to stop expecting more of what you don’t want.
Take a closer look at your environment and how you spend your time daily.
Make a list of anything you’d like to change, from your job and the way you treat others, to how much you use social media and what more productive things you could be doing at the same time.
Ask yourself, ‘Which of the things I have in my life now should I eliminate to get closer to the ideal lifestyle?’
Once you identify them, stop thinking about them. Know that they’ll be gone soon as long as you’re moving forward in the right direction.
The next one of the life design steps is to have a deeper conversation with yourself.
To get clear about where you want to be in life in order to make sure you don’t end up in the wrong destination. This will also help you visualize things more clearly when you’re working on creating your own reality using the power of your subconscious mind.
Whatever you imagine in your mind, the universe will give you more of it. Because together with this picture and the consistent attention you pay to it, you’re also giving birth to new feelings and emotions that raise your vibrations and awake you spiritually.
Answer the following questions about your future life as honestly as you can:
- Who do I want to be in my surroundings?
- How will a standard day in my ideal life go? What time will I wake up? What will I work on? How will I spend my free time? What clothes will I wear?
- What words will I use to speak more confidently? How will other people look at me now that I’m more social, positive and successful?
- How much money will I have in my bank account?
- How often will I travel and where?
- What new skills will I learn and how will they help me expand my horizons, start a business or build a name for myself in a certain industry?
Set aside a day or two to really think about all that. Write it down to make the effect stronger and follow a life design action plan. Know that you’re creating your destiny now and you shouldn’t miss out on anything important to you.
Accept all the things you wrote on the list and start expecting them.
No more negative thoughts in your mind, no more desperate complaints about what you don’t have in your life.
All this is coming your way already, you just need to be ready for it and to attract it. But that starts with first expecting all this in the near future.
Know that whatever it is that you have now and whoever you’ve become, is a result of every single decision you’ve taken throughout your life. The power of a decision is stronger than we give it credit for.
So from now on, your decisions must be aligned with your life design plan and new way of thinking, with your newly developed spirituality and awareness.
If you’ve already been working with the law of expectation and attraction, you can still make the vision in your head clearer. The thoughts that go together with it need to be stronger than your doubts, and than any outer factor from the outside world that is trying to make you part of the crowd.
On the journey to attracting abundance and accumulating wealth, you’ll be listening only to yourself. But it will be your stronger self, your inner voice, your potential giving your guidance.
No one else is allowed to create your reality on your behalf. They don’t know your true desires and you’ll never be peaceful and contented unless you define your ideal lifestyle and start building it.
That’s how to design the life you want and get to know yourself better. This is all necessary long before you make any real changes in your life such as becoming a digital nomad, starting a lifestyle business, becoming your own boss, etc.
