Many years ago, I found myself stressed-out, working way too many hours, and I didn’t even know my husband or family, anymore! Have you ever felt that way? Between all your tasks and duties, you’re just going through the motions, and life seems to have lost its luster?

I totally get it! That was my life! In fact, that way of life led me to a heart attack AND nervous breakdown.

Then something totally changed my life. A millionaire told me he would never work with me, because I had nothing he wanted. He said it was clear my husband and I hated each other, we had not taken a vacation in years and we didn’t know our kids. I looked old and worn-out. I wasn’t happy… and it showed. Honestly, who WOULD want to do anything with a person like that?

Mind you, I was still in my early 20s! That’s no way to live! It’s important to learn from successful people, if you want to be successful. If you want to know if something will work for you, look at the fruit it has produced in other people’s lives. And, on that day, I realized I was bearing some rotten fruit!

I can tell you, the fruit of the skill set I applied totally changed my life. For this skill to work for you, you need think outside-of-the-box a little. In fact, just go ahead and throw out that box! Because you can choose to live “inside the box,” choose to live your life by default… OR you can choose to design your life.

If you would prefer to live your life by DESIGN (your design), you need to understand two very important laws:

  1. The Law of Vision – While most people constantly shrink their dreams to fit their income, 2% of the population find ways every day, to increase their income to fit their dreams. And it’s not just “wishing” – you should actually 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, if you can be trusted with what you have been given, you will be made ruler over much. People chase “more, more, more” and end up with nothing, because they do not realize the secret to getting more, lies in prospering where you are planted and being faithful with what you’ve been given. 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!

Today, choose to start living your life by design. I’d love to know what that “design” looks like for you! If you could design your perfect life, what would it look like? Share it in the comments below!
