Life offers each of us various choices. We can choose to sit around or we can choose to get up. Although I recommend getting up this is purely a personal choice. Many people say they wish or want something. The choice here is whether to act on that wish or want.
As long as you are in a good position I say act. There is no doubt that action is one key factor when it comes to living an epic life. Heck, even if you are not in a good position now would be the time to act. The action that you take each day can help you to achieve great things. Let us form an example. Although this may not be applicable to you it can be applied to any goal of wish or want.
A lot of people wish they had more money. I am just using this as a general example because money is one of the most complained about things in society. Who couldn’t use a little more money? Please take this with a grain of salt as it is only a theory to help get you started. The first step after you have decided to make a better financial situation for yourself is to plan. You have set your goal, now it is time to plan.
One recommendation for planning a better financial situation is to write down what your strengths and passions are. When you have determined your strengths and passions you match them up to determine your course of action. If you are great at organization and it makes you happy to organize things start a small business on the side. You might be like, “ugh I don’t want to run a business,” but it doesn’t have to be complicated.
Go through your neighborhood or another neighborhood that you think might be able to use your services. These can be individuals or businesses depending on your expertise. Either go right to the doors or make up a generic brochure or flyer. This can be done cheaply through Vista Print or another printing company or you can make your own and bring it to a Kinko’s or your workplace if you are allowed to make copies. Also make an ad on Craigslist and Backpage. Even better mention it to all of your friends and family and let them know you are trying to get some side work to put yourself in a better place. There is no embarrassment that goes along with this.
Now look what we have. This is a nice neat little plan on something you can do on the side to put yourself in a better financial situation. There really isn’t a magic pill. It just takes work and dedication. Trust me I have tried some of the magic pills out there and most do not work exactly how they say. Normally there are a few people that have been successful at them but that is where it stops.
This was just one step to make your life epic. What are some other ways to make your life epic? Epic, according to the free dictionary online for the last two definitions are, “heroic; majestic; impressively great: the epic events of the war, or of unusually great size or extent: a crime wave of epic proportions.” This will all depend upon your perception of life. What is the most important thing to you?
A great exercise on your way to making an epic life is to make certain decisions on that question. Literally get out a piece of paper, a notebook or sit at your computer. When you have determined the most important parts of your life you should live by this. This will help you to become happier with yourself and make others around you happy.
Have you ever felt so confident you knew nothing could affect the outcome? Ask yourself a few questions. How were you standing? Get up and stand how you did when you were this confident. What was your face like when you were confident? Look into a mirror and mimic the face you held when you were this confident. You get the idea. By acting upon what you felt and how you felt the extreme confidence you will be able to almost trick yourself into being that confident again. After doing this day in and day out for a while it will become second nature to continue the confidence or whatever emotion you are trying to achieve.
Concentration is yet another method to help you make your life epic. You have to learn how to concentrate on the most important parts of life. Whatever is important to you that you want to achieve, that you want to change, in your life is what you will concentrate on. Concentrate on the overall goal and the small steps that it takes to get there.
Here are a few of many tools you can use on your way to making an epic life. I wish you well on your epic journey.
