Are Your Dreams A "Square Peg" To Your Life "Circle"?

Many years ago, I found myself in a situation where life was living me instead of me living life. Have you ever felt that way? Like between all your tasks and duties you are just going through the motions?

That used to be me. I was overly stressed-out, working way too many hours and didn’t know my family or my husband; my life no longer seemed worth living! In fact, that way of life led me to a heart attack and a nervous breakdown.

Then something happened to totally change my life. An executive (and millionaire) told me he would never work with me because I had nothing he wanted. He said it was clear to him that Hans, my husband and business partner, and I hated each other, we had not taken a vacation in years and didn’t know our kids. I looked old and worn out. I wasn’t happy and it showed – who would want to do anything with a person like that?

Mind you, I was still in my early 20s! Would you call that a way to live? It’s important to learn from successful people if you want to be successful. If you want to know if something is going to work for you, look at the fruit it has borne in other people’s lives. It was on that day I realized I was bearing some very poor fruit!

I can tell you the fruit of this particular skill set I applied totally changed my life. For this skill to work for you, you need think out of the box a little here… In fact just throw the box out. Because you can choose to live in the box, choose to live your life by default. 98% of the population is there with you.

If you would prefer to live your life by DESIGN (your design) here are two very important laws to understand

  1. The Law of Vision – While most people are shrinking their dreams constantly to fit within their income circle, 2% of the population are finding ways to increase their income to fit their dreams’ circle. It is important to list where you want to go, what you want do and with whom you want to do it. Start dreaming again! For without vision, we will perish.
  2. The Law of Promotion – This law states that if you can be trusted with what you have been given, you will be made ruler over much. People chase “the more” and end up with nothing because they do not realize the secret to getting more is prospering where you are planted. If you are faithful with the money you have, you can be ruler over more. If you are faithful with your time, you’ll be able to multiply it and get more done. However, if you waste time, money or influence you will lose it all.

If you’re stuck in a rut, overwhelmed, wishing you had more time… that’s normal! But it isn’t necessary. You don’t have to live like that. Just stop trying to fit “the box” into your existing circle.

Today, choose to start living your life by design. Give me your thoughts on what I shared today, and don’t forget to Like and Share this message.
