Asset to live a Truly Successful Life

We all strive to be successful, to make a lot of money and live on our own terms, but so often we settle for a meaningless and common life.

A life that is based on routines, unfulfilling activities and “shitty” 8-5 jobs. Few years ago I found myself at a cross road in life. I had to make an important decision: to embark on a new unknown path where I didn't know what difficulties and challenges I could encounter, but where I could finally pursue my heart's desire, or to follow the mass and live in the rat race till the end of my life.Yeah, I have to admit.

This last line might sounds a little bit extreme, but look for a moment at yourself.Probably, you have suppressed your dreams, passions and talents to live a life that is in line with our society's pattern of thinking and expectations. To please your family and relatives because you wanted to make them feel proud of you or because you were too afraid that you'll fail in some awesome endevour, right?

But I want you to think about this for a moment. What you are going to do when you’re old, and on your deathbed, you’ll think: "Oh gosh! I could have achieved more and do more if I'd had the courage to risk more." We all have multiple chances in our lifetime to live our dream life, to make extraordinary things happen, both for ourselves and for others, to make a positive impact on the world, no matter what you do for a living, what is your talent, where you live, what is your gender and your age. We all have the chance to show the world who we truly are. Because embracing who you are is the most valuable and powerful asset to become successful in every area of your life.

Live your Dream life

Life Purpose of Most Successful People

You might have a little of anxiety and hesitation about leaving the comfort of your couch and putting your credential, skills, talents and capacities to the test. But moving out from your comfort zone is essential for your personal evolution, no matter what challenges, setbacks or disappointment you may encounter along the way. At the end you will find true success and happiness if only you have this one goal in mind: “I want to fulfill the highest expression of myself as human being.”

Being true to myself has been the mystic force that helped me to get out from the trap of my mind, the negative “loop” that made me think I wasn't good enough, I wasn't worthy to follow my deepest dreams and desires. And I used those moments of uncertainty as fuel, motivation and commitment to change, to recalculate my whole life from A to Z.

Thus, it's in the toughest moments of your life that you'll force yourself to figure out what is the next right move. It's in the hardest challenges that you'll discover your personality, your identity, your uniqueness and authenticity. It's when you inevitably stumble and find yourself stuck in a hole, that you will know more of who you are.So, from time to time you might fall, you will have questions and doubts about your path, but if you'll be willing to listen and be guided by your internal GPS, your intuition or whatever you call it, you'll find out what makes you come alive, what makes you happy, successful and, most importantly, how you can contribute with your talents to make a difference in the world.

Make your Own Choices

Maintain Momentum in Life

Use yourself to build your own story, a story that doesn't simply tell about what you want to be, but a story about who you want to be. A story that doesn't just tell what you want to accomplish, but why. A story that fully represents you, who you truly are. Your core self. Your authentic self.
But now I'd like to hear from you: "What choices are you going to make for the next 30 days to stay true to yourself?"
Track your progress and let me know what wonderful, small or big, things you accomplished.
