Advice: Living Life On Your Terms

5 Jul

I recently had a discussion with a friend about living life on your own terms. So often we are defined by other peoples influences and opinions, it can be difficult to see what it is that we really want.
So,  here are my tips on living a life fuelled by your decisions and by what you really want.

+ Understand that when people are talking to you, they’re speaking from their belief system.
Their belief system is an entirely different one to yours, heck, if they decided they believed it was right to run around your street naked, you wouldn’t automatically do that too would you?! Acknowledge that they have their own belief system, but never compromise on yours and always be true to yourself.

+ Surround yourself with encouraging people.
The right people will always be supportive and encouraging towards your decisions. They will acknowledge that it is your life and will support you regardless of their personal beliefs. If they don’t act encouraging, maybe it’s time to think about whether you really want that person to be a part of your life.

+ Be honest about what it is you really want.
You want to be president of the United States? Awesome. Whatever it is you want to achieve, you must be honest with yourself about it because you’ll get nowhere if you second guess your dreams. Try writing a list or creating a vision board, anything to get you feeling inspired and excited about your passions.

+ Don’t allow fear of rejection or failure to get in the way of you taking action.
Okay, here’s the thing. That big dream you have? It won’t happen if you don’t take action. And you know what? It might not work, but it just might be the most awesome thing ever and far more superior than you could ever have thought possible. You won’t know until you try, frostings.

+ Figure out what it is that makes you jump for joy.
What is it that gets your heart racing and fills you with glee? What is it that you absolutely love to do? Think about it.

+ Make a promise to yourself to never settle for mediocraty.
You are better than that. You deserve fabulousness and you shouldn’t settle for anything less. Aim to be the better than the best, and only then will you succeed at whatever it is you want to do.

So, those are my tips frostings, what are yours? Answers in the comment section!

Lots of love..

    Fantastic post! I think everybody owes it to themselves to spend a few days each year (I usually do this around my birthday) to really examine their lives and really think about if you’re happy with the way things are going. Is this what *you* really want? Is this the life you imagined for yourself? If not, do something about it!
