A Guide to Doing Things Your Way


It is day 31 and the very last foothold in the mountain that has been Make Your Life Amazing 2012

I’ve given you the basic recipe, the next step is to add your own secret, special ingredients, to make it totally your own.

Your amazing life will never be like anybody else’s, because you are not like anyone else. That’s why, although I hope to have given you a helping hand, it is down to you how far you take this concept, and how far you really start existing spectacularly.

People rarely have much faith in their own way of doing things, which is a real shame, because it’s usually their very best way of going about things. Once you can put faith in your own ability, you can truly start growing into something special; whereas, if you cannot believe in yourself, you will always stunt your own progress.

How far do you truly support your own manner, actions, opinions, and idiosyncrasies? How far do you truly feel you are equipped to start living an amazing life right now? Once you invest faith in yourself, and once you can feel safe in the knowledge that, whatever happens, you can stand by your choices, then you have armed yourself with the mindset you need to be your most amazing.

You have the tools to fashion whatever style of life you choose, all you need to do is take the plunge and back up your aspirations with action.

Summary:
♥ An amazing life requires your own special ingredients
♥ You are not like anyone else; put faith in your own ability
♥ Arm yourself with the mindset and actions you need to be your most amazing self
Homework:

Have faith in your own way.

Now that the series is over, it’s time to stop listening to me, and start hearing yourself. In all honesty, have you lost faith in your own decisions and aims?

I think, with all the work we’ve done this month, a summative homework is necessary. Therefore, in light of the above quote, we’re going to rationalize a sort of MYLA ‘toolkit’ to take with us from this series. Instead of Kazantzakis’ ‘colours and brushes’, however, we’re going to record our aspirations, our tools for action, and our prospected outcomes. List these three headings in your journal, and write between three and five points for each one. See my example:

It's okay to go back through your journal and repeat your most powerful points from the other exercises, in fact, that’s kind of the point; we want to gather the best bits of the whole experience to give you that final surge to super-self-stardom.

And that was Make Your Life Amazing 2012, folks! I will announce the eCourse winners in the next few days, so still a chance to comment on this post to be in with a chance. Any final thoughts? Doing this again has really inspired me to create a whole new big project which we can all get involved in - so I'll start scheming and keep you posted. I can safely say that, personally, I find myself in a whole new bracket of amazing since the start of this month, with some big practice-what-you-preach actions being taken just today - all will be revealed.  

I hope it got your 2012 fire started, too. ♥
