Designing Your Life
What does lifestyle design mean to me?! It means designing my life the way I want it to be! Creating what I envision my life to be like - full of happiness, friendship, family time, health, wellness and creativity. Lifestyle design can be different for each and everyone of us - How do you envision your life?
Transforming Your Life
To transform your life you must be clear about what you want in life. Start by drawing a picture of your ideal life. Include the person you want to become, your dream job, the people you want in it and the ways you want to spend your time and money. Anything is possible if you take conscious decisions and have specific goals defined. The strategy that you hold will guide you to the actions to make that will lead you to the life that you dream of. Life is what you make it!
The Artist Within
At the age of 44, I made a conscious decision to become an "amazing artist". I always had wanted to be one but never had the belief that I could until I had been reading about the importance of what we think.
What you think you become. Your thoughts create you. What you do, you are. Your actions define you.
All I needed was a belief in myself, to change my thought pattern and have a great artist to teach me! I chose Jason Morgan Wildlife Artist. He's an amazing artist with a great skill for teaching others how to draw. My choice of art tools was pastel sticks and pastel pencils on a pastelmat paper. My very first drawing using Pastels was AMAZING! I somehow had become an amazing artist over night. How was that possible?
Before I started doing Pastel drawings I didn't actually know how to draw, let alone draw realistic portraits of animals and people. It was all new to me. But after walking around my house saying, "I am an amazing artist"! over and over again, day after day. I then began to believe that I could actually draw. It was at that point that I took action, I did my first pastel drawing. To my amazement, it became natural to me and since then I have drawn other amazing portraits or animals and people.
The words that we speak have the power to change our lives. Be the person you want to become by speaking as if you are already that person.
