Are you a Life Design Skeptic? You really don’t believe it is possible for anyone to design their life. You probably believe in Fate or maybe more importantly, you are a deeply religious person who believes our lives are shaped and designed by God.
The truth is, our existence in this universe is based on laws. Like the Law of gravity, there is the Law of Attraction that determines that in life, you get what you ask and believe. Better put, you get what you dream and then act out as you progress towards those dreams. Your dream is the way to ask of life, what you want to achieve or see.
The poem below, nicely articulates this concept with a great metaphor.
My Wage by Jessie Rittenhouse
I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life would pay no more,
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store;
For Life is a just employer,
He gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.
I worked for a menial’s hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have gladly paid!
As in the poem above, it is usually too late to go back in the evening or sunset of life to demand higher of life. A Productive Plus Life is one that sets its high wages of Life in the morning hours. How do you set these high wages of Life, by dreaming BIG, aiming HIGH, pushing to the frontiers of your imagination to carve out the BEST life you could possibly dream of.
You may feel that you are so busy getting by on a day-to-day basis, that you simply don’t have the time for dreaming. Trust me, It’s worth making out the time to fashion out a life of your dreams. An exciting life that you can work towards, takes the drudgery out of life and fills you with joy, passion and strength that enables you overcome most challenges.
Take out a little bit of time at the weekend and start thinking about what your perfect life would look like. Where would you be working? What would you be doing? How much would you be earning? Who would you be with? What difference would you be making in the world? Start writing out your thoughts as they come to you. What do you have to lose? Just give it a go and drop me a message to let me know how it felt. What difference it made. Just try it!
