Over the past 6 weeks I have been intensely focused on the first part of creating a Kick-Ass Life, and that is identifying what YOUR version of Kick-Ass Life looks like. I find that all versions of a Kick-Ass Life have this in common-
A Kick-Ass Life gives you the freedom and flexibility to be your ‘freaky’ self while receiving all the abundance the Universe has to offer.
The specifics look different for everyone and it is important to take the time to identify what works and doesn’t work for you.
Creating the space to do that seems to be the tricky part because it’s outside of the normal skill set that we are taught growing up. We get really good at identifying what doesn’t work and what we don’t want in our lives, but we don’t take advantage of the opportunity to use the contrast that we are experiencing to get really clear around what we do want. If you learn to leverage this opportunity you will notice that you will quickly begin to experience new found clarity about what exactly will bring you the most meaning, success, and happiness.
What do you do once you have identified what YOUR version of Kick-Ass looks like? How do you build a life that reflects all of your preferences and is designed to fit you perfectly?
This is the tricky part! We aren’t taught how to create a life that is designed to fit us perfectly. We learn how to settle for whatever we are given, and to live up to other people’s expectations of us. We follow society’s rules and force ourselves to fit in and conform even though it feels crappy. But, we are not really taught how to discover what works for us and what feels good for us. And, we’re certainly not taught how to shift our situation from one that sucks to one that feels really good.
So what do you do?
Here is one solution.
Play around with my 5 Steps for Creating Your Kick-Ass Life. These steps are simple. Simple enough that anyone can do them. You can apply them no matter where you are at in your life. You don’t need anything that you don’t already have in order to make them work.
You definitely don’t need to save all your money or go get a new job or wait till the kids are out of the house. These are all things that you can start doing right now. This is also a very dynamic process that you can use over and over again as you grow and expand more into who you are. This process will grow with you.
Here are The 5 Steps to Creating Your Kick-Ass Life. I will share them briefly here and over the next few weeks I will expand on them in more detail.
Step 1: Claim it!
Set the intention to settle for nothing less than your Kick-ass Life.
Step 2: Start looking for it!
Start identifying what would make your life Kick-Ass. Start creating a daily Kick-Ass List and write down everything that works and you want more of from your day.
Step 3: Amplify the energy of the things you want more of.
This goes directly hand in hand with step two. Spend time basking in the juicy good feelings of everything you appreciate and want more of in your life.
Step 4: Notice the resistance and deal with it.
As you begin to change your life and go for more of what you want, you will be faced with a variety of challenges and obstacles. Your stories and pre-packaged beliefs around why you can’t do or have something will come up. Notice when this happens and learn the lesson you need to learn to deal with it. This is the toughest and most challenging step, but with a little bit of support you can do this.
Step 5: Set yourself up for success.
As you begin to get a clear picture around what you’re Kick-Ass Life looks like, start to create the support structures that sustain you in living it.
As I said before, this is a brief outline of my 5 Steps for Creating Your Kick-Ass Life.
Over the next few weeks I will expand on them and go into more details.
There will also be an opportunity for you to get a hands on experience of them coming up in the New Year.
