Cover Your Bases First
Little habits add up in a big way, but they don’t replace the essentials.
No matter how many hours you meditate, say affirmations or go for walks, if your health sucks, or you are surround by negative vampires or you hate your job, you are still going to feel miserable.
It’s like being in a car with no wheels. Technically you’re driving, but you’re not going anywhere anytime soon.
We have to work on our foundations, the big habits and decisions that create the scaffolding of our life.
Are you eating a wide variety of vibrant and nutritional food?
Are you intentionally exercising regularly?
Is your work fulfilling to you?
Are you in great community circles that are pushing you to be you and be better?
Are you letting your money work for you, instead of you being a slave to it?
Are you saying yes to the things that fill you with life and energy and no to everything else?
Are you living by your own life principles?
These questions are just the starting point. Each is the tip of an iceberg that has serious depth to explore if you are willing. ‘Willing’ because this is scary stuff. It’s not easy to stop hanging out with negative friends that aren’t lifting you up. It’s not easy to make the bold choice, over the passive choice.
But I know that we can do it if we try.
That’s how we create a meaningful and extraordinary life.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
