Live Your Destiny: 3 Ways to Find Your Life Purpose

Live Your Destiny: 3 Ways to Find Your Life Purpose

All successful people have taken the time somewhere at the beginning of their journey to sit down, take some serious decisions, realize what they want and don’t want, and set the right goals that will take them to the ideal lifestyle.

To live your destiny, you need to be doing what you’re supposed to do, to master what you’re good at, change the things you believe in, form meaningful relationships, live your days consciously, be truly grateful, and aim higher all the time.

Finding a life purpose, however, isn’t something the average person is good at doing. That’s usually because he lives in denial, is afraid to leave the comfort zone and put effort into making a big change, and makes excuses.

As a result, he keeps himself busy all day doing unimportant stuff, isn’t satisfied with his life, and rarely feels appreciation, happiness or succeeds in any way.

To get out of the average trap, you need to find your purpose. As a result, you’ll live your destiny.

That can happen any day, so don’t consider it too late, regardless of your age, skills, profession, lack of resources, or else.

Here are some ways to live a more fulfilling life:

1. Go to a life-changing event.

What better way to understand the psychology of success, together with how every small decision we take in daily life affects our destiny than to hear it from the experts themselves.

Tony Robbins is usually the first one that comes to mind when talking about a self-help and business guru. He’s transformed the mindsets and lives of millions of people all over the world, he talks with passion, reveals universal truths we often remain blind for and has coached anyone from Fortune 500 CEOs and heads of state, to Olympic athletes.

People often say that they never felt so alive than they did while listening to his words. At the Date with Destiny event, for instance, you can see what Tony calls ‘immersion’ – experiencing and witnessing massive breakthroughs in real life situations. So it’s not just theory he focuses on.

If you’re surrounded by average people, have a regular job and feel like you should be doing something more with your life, you probably need someone to tell you to unleash your potential, and show you how to do it, like Tony Robbins.

2. Try things.

You can stay at home all day, every day and make plans for the future or wonder what your life purpose is, but to really live your destiny, you need to experience stuff and see what feels right.

So go out and visit new places, meet with people, do what feels scary or uncomfortable, work on new business ideas, give new sports and hobbies a try.

Each of these helps you grow as a person and learn valuable skills. And somewhere along the way, you’ll notice how doing something, in particular, makes you full of energy, you focus more easily, can do it effortlessly, and lose track of time when concentrated only on it.

That’s probably something you’re passionate about. Your true calling is the thing you enjoy doing, and which comes naturally to you. It’s also part of your path in life and must be pursued.

When you make it a daily thing, get better at it, see how you can use your talents to help others and even turn it into your career, that’s when you’ll live your destiny.

You can also try things that will help you align your purpose with the universe and become self-aware. That could be by exploring numerology and understanding the spiritual meaning of numbers., for example. Find more information about the connection between numbers and your destiny here.

3. Listen to your guts.

Most of the things from daily life are distractions.

Just think about it. Other people are constantly interrupting you when you’re working, they talk about their problems, some of them are quite negative and complain all the time, and that has a bad influence on your too.

The job you’re working sucks the life out of you, you have no opportunity to grow there, lead a sedentary life, are in an unfriendly environment and are being treated with disrespect. With all these negative emotions in your head all the time as a result of working 5 days a week, you have no peace of mind and desire to think about what else you should be doing with your life.

That’s why it’s worth listening to your heart. It knows best and it can help you find and live your destiny. You just need to ignore all the distractions, negativism, random thoughts and anything that others are telling you.

Turn to your inner self. Ask yourself what in your current life you’re not happy with, how you can begin changing today, what you loved doing as a child but gave up on when you entered the adult world, what things you secretly dream about but never say out loud, etc.

Get it all out. Write it down if you have to. The written word is powerful. You may come to some pretty interesting conclusions.

Don’t put off finding your life purpose anymore. Give these 3 ideas a try and see what works best for you.

Any other ideas on how to change for the better and live your destiny?

To live your destiny you need to do meaningful things and have a purpose in life. Here are 3 simple ways to find it today and start living a more fulfilling life aligned with the universe and your true self: #purpose #lifegoals #success

How This Family Guy Makes $10,000/Month Online Teaching Others How to Make, Save and Invest Money - Interview with R.J. Weiss from TheWaystoWealth.com

This is an interview-style post with R.J. Weiss from The Ways to Wealth.

Hey R.J. What’s your background and what do you do?

I blog about all things personal finance at The Ways to Wealth.

Before I went full-time into blogging, I spent ten years in the financial services industry. Specifically, helping families buy the right type of life insurance.

During my time with a full-time job, I’ve always had different side hustles going on. From freelance writing, Amazon FBA, conversion rate optimization, to website design — there were many projects I pursued outside of work.

How did you start your career in finance?

I got started in finance straight out of college working for my the family insurance business. As I love the financial planning side of things, I choose to specialize in life insurance planning. This led me down the path to obtaining the CFP® Certification.

What made you start blogging?

The Ways to Wealth, which I started in 2016, has been my 5th blog.

The others mostly fizzled out most due to a lack of interest. But, in 2009 I started a personal finance blog called GenYWealth.com (no longer around) that had some success.

The idea GenYwealth.com was to write about what I was learning about studying to take the CFP®. The blog was, by all means, a success. I was able to gain valuable knowledge, pass the CFP® exam, earn some extra money and build up a good community.

I then took this knowledge and started a business blog, which allowed the insurance agency I was working for to generate leads.

I started The Ways to Wealth because my passion is personal finance–from investing to travel hacking, I love the challenge of optimizing my finances.

How was The Ways to Wealth born?

I didn’t have much of a plan for starting The Ways to Wealth when I purchased the domain name.

I was actually thinking it would be a niche site, which was inspired by Pat Flynn’s niche site duel. Then, I came across the income reports of Michelle Schroeder-Gardner and wisely changed direction to a more traditional blog.

This change came about 6-months after starting to blog.  I did a timeline of the site in one of my income reports.

What worked best when trying to grow the site?

I had a decent knowledge of SEO. So at first, I started growing the site with email outreach. One of the first posts I had about best investing books of all time, had about 15 links to it.

This was nice to start with but was quite slow to build up, as it can take a while to earn Google’s trust.

The big turning point came when I started to understand Pinterest. I spent a few frustrating weeks on the platform, then it finally started paying dividends.

I went from about 100 sessions a day to 1,000, which was huge for me at the time.

How did you get to 3 million monthly viewers on Pinterest?

I lay out my Pinterest strategy here. But at the core the idea is to:

1) Write high-quality content that Pinners want to click through, read, and share.

2) Pin to my own and high-quality group boards, with a keyword-rich description.

3) Continue to Pin my best pins across my own boards/group boards, ruthlessly eliminating Pins that don’t perform well.

One thing to keep in mind is impressions don’t mean much on Pinterest. What counts are clicks to your website. So, you want to design not for impressions but clicks.

What aspects of the online business are you outsourcing or automating and how?

The first thing I outsourced was Pinterest design. I’ll design about 30-40 pins a month, so this was big time saver for me.

Of course, it took some work to get going. At first, I hired 5 or so people on Fiverr. I found one decent designer but the work quality deteriorated over time.

I then went to Upwork and posted a job for a  graphic designer. I found a great team down in Argentina, who I’m very happy with.

I’m currently experimenting with working with a ghostwriter. A few of my latest posts have been transcribed from my recording, with the ghostwriter making sense of it all.

I can compile about 3 posts in 90 minutes, then take another 90 or so minutes to prepare them. Saving me around 3-4 hours per post this way.

What’s your main income stream and why do you think it works for you?

My main source of income for the blog is affiliate revenue. It works because the partners I do have are high-quality businesses, who deliver value and solve real problems. This makes it easy to naturally link to such a partner.

When did you start making more than $10K/month and what was the turning point?

My first month over $10K was in January of 2018. In December of 2017, income was around $3,000 and in July of 2017 around $500. So, it was definitely a jump.

What happened then in January?

First, personal finance is at its peak interest in January.

Second, I had multiple Pins go viral.

Third, in November I started driving traffic via Facebook to the site. So, in January I could take campaigns I’d been fine-tuning for a few weeks and scale them.

How do you balance work and family life?

I have a routine I stick to Monday through Friday.

When inside of my designated working hours, I work. When outside of these hours, I’m not.

This is a lot easier said than done. But the thing important for me is not to take work everywhere I go. This means I don’t have any apps on my phone that are work-related (email, analytics, etc..)

What are you 3 best finance tips for newbies?

  • Focus on your savings rate. How much you save is the most important decision you’ll make.
  • Small incremental improvements add up over time. My favorite example is increasing your savings rate 1% every quarter, means you’ll be saving 20% of your income in just 5 years.
  • Study happiness. Become a student on how to increase your level of happiness. The natural result is you’ll want less overtime, making the game of personal finance a lot easier to win.

What books, blogs or podcasts help you stay motivated along the way of growing an online business?

I read a fair amount to keep fresh ideas in my head.

My favorite podcast is The Tim Ferriss Show.

Two blogs I enjoy reading are:

Farnam Street
Barking up the Wrong Tree

And as far as books. I try to read one a week. A few books I would recommend to online entrepreneurs would be:

Deep Work by Cal Newport
The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy
The Four Hour Work Week by Tim Ferriss
