Three Ingredients for Living a BIG Life

Here three things you can do to begin living a BIG life…

1. Start your day in gratitude. At times, this may appear easier said than done. Especially if you’re at a time in your life where it might appear that there’s far more to be concerned about than thankful for. Still, trust me, even if you have to dig a little deeper to identify those things, do it. It will do wonders for helping you to set the tone for your day. Friend, we tend to attract more of what we allow our thoughts to focus on.

I don’t claim to know all the reasons this is so, but take my word for it. Start your day by going over the things you have to be thankful for and you’ll be better for it.

2. Make sure to review whatever system you have in place to keep you on track daily. I say “whatever system” because it may be that you use some form of goal setting, a to do list, a calendar, you name it — the point here is that whatever works for you, make a commitment to review it, and work it.

Remember, worthwhile things require your effort. If you don’t have a “system” in place you might find the one I teach called, The Goal Cards System to be helpful. I get more in depth about it in my book, It’s Your Life, LIVE BIG, but you can also watch a quick video where I talk about it .

3. At the end of each day review the progress you’ve made. Plan for the following day. Again, review your “system” — reevaluate things — reflect on things a bit, give yourself credit for successes & wins you experienced, and those things you didn’t get done, plan to do them. Consistency is hugely important. It’s not all about hitting home runs, the singles, doubles, and occasional triple will get you to where you want to be as well.

Remember the saying, “‘ya gotta’ be in it to win it.” Staying plugged into your “achievement system” will get you to where you truly want to go in life.

And finally, repeat the above three items daily, and ongoing. In no time flat they’ll become habits, and when that happens, friend, there’s no stopping you!

Remember, Living BIG is all about living by choice, over chance, more often than not.

It’s your life, LIVE BIG!
