There are 7 strategies for obtaining what you want in life, and enjoying it passionately!
So many of us, these days, lead busy lifestyles. As society grows exponentially more complex, so do our responsibilities. The only thing that stays the same are the hours in a day.
While many of us might truly be interested in developing new strategies for self-improvement and personal growth, we often feel so time-constrained that we don’t believe we have an hour to sit down to read a new book or take a new workshop.
With that in mind, I’ve written this post for all of you super-busy folks. I’ve also included a link with each step that points to more specific, helpful hints.
Success Strategies for an Abundant Life
Strategy #1: See Time Differently
Become accurately and tenaciously aware of how you actually spend your day.
Strategy #2: Develop a System
With that increased awareness, determine where you can habituate, either your revenue-producing activities, or, in some cases, your “future business activities” (providing value to others with whom you’re not in a current business transaction).
“…understand that relationship-building is not
a temporary campaign, it’s a lifestyle choice”
Strategy #3: Reframe Your Endeavor as Noble
It’s startling, but if we’re being brutally honest, that fact is that, for many people, their physical and emotional health gradually deteriorates as they earn more money. They figure they can get healthy one day once they reach “a particular point,” then they’ll get themselves into shape and starting paying attention to deepening the relationships in their lives. But, of course, the only moment we really have for certain, is now.
Hopefully, you desire the healthy kind of success. Choose to have faith that your healthier habits will enrich your life if you are consistent and if you persevere. Understand that relationship-building is not a temporary campaign, it’s a lifestyle choice.
The key word in these 3 steps so far is habituate.
As you go about your usual routine, I suggest watching yourself with a third eye: witness yourself objectively as you go from task to task, and see if you can recognize patterns and habits.
“…you’re going to want to have
healthy ways to metabolize some
of life’s natural anxiety”
Strategy #4: Fantasize Vividly
Visualize what you want perfectly in your mind — close your eyes, breathe, and see yourself having what you want, so clearly and deeply that you can actually feel it.
Strategy #5: Modify Your Language
Attract what you want into your life by using positive vibrations and feelings, choosing to observe the best of your life, and eliminating the words “don’t,” “not,” and “no” from your habitual language.
Strategy #6: Look Closely at Your Day, Again
Remember in Strategy #1 when you tried to see your day through a different lens? Now, do it again, only this time, be more picky. Really look at the evidence of where your time is going. Move into action, by looking consciously at how you spend your time each day, and establish systems of productivity. This website is loaded with many tips on getting the most bang from your average day, so I invite you to explore a bit, until you find systems that work uniquely well for you.

Strategy #7: Find Outlets!
Many people who are diligent at the first steps, will stumble when they get to this seventh step. For whatever reason, we humans are not always proactive in finding habitual ways of releasing tension from our minds and bodies. In fact, if we look back closely at the mistakes we’ve made in your lives until this point, we’ll see that we made them when we were feeling anxious or “off-center.”
I encourage you to experiment with these seven strategies!
