My Dear Thinette
How would you describe a meaningful life? What will make it special and how will you get to that goal, my dear … ever thought of how to live with a purpose?
Are my expectations real, or a hindrance. Have I thought what I want from life lately, or am I stuck with my childhood ideas. Our worst enemy are the ideas we have created growing up, along with all the fantasies we had. Those were sometimes unrealistic visions of make believe.
Dreams and visions are different. It is the thoughts you have and what you think can become real.
The secret is don’t chase fantasies but dream big. Open up enough space in your head and plan a realistic future with your dreams as your goals.
How will I a Meaningful Life?
A meaningful life is living a life of service according to your values as a guide.
Now that you know who you are, the next step is to find what gives you pleasure. What is your strength? Find what you are good at and build your future around it. Visualise a future with reality and doable goals for a happiness you deserve. See yourself in it and live it everyday.
Name a few topics, ask why does it give you pleasure and how can I be of serves. Why would you love to do it for the rest of your life?
You might like tennis, then the options will be, become a local training coach, sell tennis equipment at a sportshop, start a tennis website giving virtual advice and selling equipment at the same time.
Do so with all the topics you have chosen, in the end there will be a clear winner to become your future.
The next step is to experience your topic, go and work for a few months at a sportshop, or assist a local coach and learn from him. Read about and do free training lessons on the Internet to see if running a website will interest you.
Keep on ask ‘Why’ all the time until you come to a dead-end with answers. Why do I like ir, why do I want it, why does it make me happy etc.
Planning with vision and then taking action is really the only way to get what you want.
Ask yourself: Will I be wise and therefore do what I need to do, to be successful or will I procrastinate and wait for the perfect moment, for this miracle to happen?
There is no time to waste my dear, when you know what you want, start working on it immediately. Many important decisions will have to be made, put shoulder to the wheel and with determination and enthusiasm fulfil your dreams.
Every goal has to have a purpose that will serve your goal. Do good planning, with tons of preparation. As a result, the more detail the better, and then the dedicated execution thereof.
What is your relationship with yourself? Do you respect the choices for your mission? Are you driven to do whatever it takes, or do you fall back and think I will never be able to achieve any. Very important my dear, get the right mindset and tell yourself … I can and I will!
What is a meaningful life
Yes, what is a meaningful happy life? I want to be successful with a purpose.
How do you want to live your life? What will your standards be?
What will I need, to achieve those expectations? Will it be hard work, an outstanding skill or determination?
First of all, have a productive plan for each day. Have a daily routine of getting up early. Organise your tasks into hourly sections for every day and have a fixed schedule.
Most of us have visions of living an idyllic life in luxury in utopia, not realising where it all comes from.
What will my Future life look like?
~ What gives me a happy warm secure feeling? Take your personality into consideration.
Most of all, I want to wake up every morning with a feeling of joy and excitement? What will it be?
~ The future, where will I be in 10 years time? Start visualising where you want to be.
~ Ask yourself, “Are my expectations realistic?” Unrealistic expectations, mostly turn into a bigger problem, my dear. It will most definitely demotivates you along the way.
~ Take a moment and write your life story from here on as you see it. What will the heading and the theme be, where will I work, how will I live and what will my holidays look like? Make predictions.
Who am I in this life story? Will I be the storyteller, wicked participant complaining about everything or on the other hand, the happy Hero?
~ What will my relationships be like?
~ Am I dreaming of a handsome prince kidnapping me.
~ Be someone’s best friend?
~ Do I have the recipe to be happy for the rest of my life?
~ Building a six-figure affiliate business online, selling courses and be an influencer.
Back to this moment … much more has to be done to get to that point my dear, therefore lifestyle and habit changes might be in the air to achieve!
Which Way to Go
Finding your direction, make certain. The field is wide open. You might want to become a professional with a University degree, a successful online entrepreneur or a stay at home mom, but in addition, happiness stays at the core of your being. Make a well informed decision.
Let us begin at the beginning and therefore create your plan, but first of all:
Get rid of all fantasies and dreams you had. The worst thing in life is the picture you have created in your head of what your life is supposed to be. That inner voice which has dictated your relationship with yourself.
Remember expectations are an illusion of what you have created in your mind.
Never live your life according to other people’s ideas and expectations they have for you, especially not those of your parents. They sometimes want to achieve their own long lost dream through you. Not meaning any disrespect.
Prepare for my Future
• Define your purpose and know your route to your destination. First of all, what you want and how are you going to get there.
• Discipline, Dedication and Determination are important.
• Do your planning in detail.
• Overcome obstacles.
• Learn to Separate
• Develop High-income skills.
When to do your Planning?
At the end of each year do your planning for the next year. Create a plan with goals for one year, two years, a five-year plan and a ten-year schedule. Know where you are heading with your short term goals.
Do your 12 monthly planning, divided it into 4 weekly plannings for each month.
Then follow your seven day planning for the weeks.
Lastly is the daily planning. Lay it out in easy accomplishable goals and tasks.
Draw a thin line through it all, leading to your ultimate goal. The best is to know where am I heading.
In other words, why is it so important to do what I do, and most of all, is my roaďmap clear to achieve this goal.
Effectively, the only way to get results is thinking it through, then deciding and planning the road to success.
Without this preparation with due dates, subsequently, nothing will happen, my dear.
Putting yourself and most certainly, your future first, no matter what, it is a must!
Have good positive conversations with yourself, building a winner relationship.
Habits to fulfil your Dreams
Affirmations of Dedication and Determination
Both will be needed in huge quantities, therefore, discipline and hard work will be the key to get what you want. Decide, I will have to be very firm with myself. Due to a heavy workload, following a tight working schedule, is now a priority.
In other words, the lazy days are over, I have a great task ahead.
Work hard while you are young to harvest the good fruits at old age. Retirement plans are so important and should, therefore, be part of your planning from day one.
How to Do Your Preparation
Successful people do thorough planning. Long term and short goals need detailed attention. Follow this link to learn all about thorough planning on a yearly, monthly, weekly and daily bases.
Above all keep proper records. Print it out and keep in physical files to keep track, or save to the Cloud. I do not trust the digital devices, have seen quite a few things disappear never to surface again. The same hard work and dedication a farmer has to go through, to get meat or veggies on the table are applicable to reaching goals too.
It does not happen overnight, as a matter of fact, you will have this assignment for life to reach your goals.
No magic wand, in other words, it is a lengthy process before you can harvest the fruit of your labour.
As a result, you have to budget your time and money well. Do spoil yourself with a treat or two, eg. one night a week out with my friends and enjoy it, but for the rest of the time be dedicated to your goal.
Managing your Obstacles
Stay calm and overcome obstacles with logic. Search for information and gain enough knowledge on the subject to give you confidence.
Learn to think out the box. Find a different approach to solve a problem. Look at it from a different angle.
Never complicate issues. First of all, see it for what it is and not what you think it is. Never take it personally.
Find a way to turn these challenges into advantages.
My Support Team
Find people who are trustworthy and honest and wise, to be close to you to form your support group. First of all, people willing to helping you to achieve your success.
You will need this reinforcement group of people for the rainy days. Select experienced friends, who are sincerely interested in your wellbeing.
It will mostly be the older people in your life. Finding wisdom and moral support in one person is good, but more specific mentors to guide and motivate you are a necessity my dear.
Learn to Separate
Separate different occurrences and issues in life. Put everything that happens to you in separate little boxes in your mind. Each on his own and has nothing to do with each other, only in the bigger picture does.
As an example, if you had a flat tyre it was actually nobody’s fault. Fix the tyre, get over it and move on!
In other words, see it as an experience and a lesson to be learned.
Close the box and file it in the archives of your mind, most importantly, don’t carry it with you the whole day. Moaning and groaning about it, won’t change anything, it will only steal your joy and chase everybody away!
How to fulfil My Purpose?
You will have to equip yourself for success. The best will be, with high-income skills to obviously earn more.
Do some self-study, take applicable courses, in addition, read all you can and gain more knowledge to become an expert in your chosen field.
Know more than everybody else on the subject, always stay one step ahead. Become the specialist.
What is a high-income skill?
It is not a general skill acquired in everyday work, it will have to have the distinction to be unique and scares. For instance, not a normal office worker, but become the best copywriter. Selecting a speciality group that is not the norm will earn more money. Specialise in what you know is your strength.
Choose a career in demand, one that will still be there in a few years time. Develop it to the ultimate. Take your time and make sure to do the right choice.
A desire to become an authority in your field, only comes with knowledge gained, and then the application thereof, my dear.
What should you do?
• Update your planning continuously according to happenings, my dear.
• To make those dreams and expectations come true is best to set your foundation on solid rock and work hard.
• Have a vision where you are going to.
How to Create a Balanced Life of Abundance
There are a couple of methods to enrich the quality of your life, your career and your private life.
They might need different sets of expertise to develop and in addition, keep it separate but balanced.
Let’s look at it at the gand of this example. Everybody have two lives, a private life at home and then your business or working life. Each personality has its own character and has its own box.
Therefore, your personal life stays at home and business life stays at the office. Mixing them will bring a conflict of interest and in the end, divide your attention.
While on your way home after work, put back the career attitude in its box and close the lid, simultaneously open your personal loving family box, and start thinking about the warmth and love at home.
As a result, when you get home you will already feel so relaxed. Do the same in the mornings. On your way to work, leave my private life at the front door. Start planning and thinking of the business day with important decisions to make, in short shift your focus.
The aim of these letters is to help you get out the maze onto the high road to success, as smoothly as possible, my dear. Freedom is what everybody strives to have.
Freedom is to become financially independent, be your own woman, inevitably it brings the confidence needed.
Do things the way you want to it to be, that is the ultimate freedom. Take responsibility for this process and make it happen.
There are only two ways to be happy, my dear.
Either Change the Situation you are in or Change your Mindset.
Know where you are going and, more so, keep moving, my love. Never stay at the crossroads and worst of all, don’t let everybody else gets passed.
Find what gives your life purpose, more so, what brings the feeling to be proud of what you are doing. Create a system to accomplish it.
When planning your goals, have your vision and dreams in mind, furthermore, be specific.
Begin with the End in Mind, and finally, start working like there is no tomorrow to reach those goals, my dear.
There is no time to procrastinate!
Love you lots.
