5 Rules For Living A Thrilling And Fulfilling Life

success drawing

I came across an absolutely brilliant idea a month or so back, and I only regret that it’s taken me this long to share it with you. Jon over at 5 Rules For Life emailed me with a (very flattering) submission request. It was right as I was heading o/s for a month or so, so I kinda forgot about it until stumbling across his blog again today. It really is a fantastic concept. In Jon’s words –

“The premise is simple – people from all walks share what they believe are the most important rules to follow for a happy, successful, and fulfilling life.”

I highly recommend checking this blog out – you may not come across with a new rule for your own top 5, but you’ll most certainly be inspired! So without further ado, here are my 5 rules for life.

1. Be present

I have to admit I’m still struggling with this one myself (and probably always will), but it’s definitely a rule I try to live by. It’s all too easy to become so caught up in the day to day that we forget that life is, in fact, happening right now. And if you’re not enjoying it, living it, being absorbed in it, pressing ‘play’, well then you’re missing out on your own life. Which is just plain sad, not to mention somewhat unproductive, and even exhausting if it means your mind is constantly anywhere but where you are. There’s a great saying that goes something like ‘forget yesterday, live for today, tomorrow will take care of itself’ (or may never come) – in fact, I think I’m paraphrasing from the Bible with that one. I’d say it’s definitely a mantra worth living by, wouldn’t you?

2. Figure out what really matters to you

It’s all very well to learn how to be present, but it’s not going to be especially rewarding if your ‘present’ is a place you don’t really want to be. The most useful thing I’ve done (and repeated) in the past decade or so is taken time out to figure out what really matters to me. Truth be told it’s a pretty hefty list, but whittling it down is half the fun and fairly insightful as well! When it all comes down to it, the thing that matters most to me is enjoying who I am and enjoying life with my family and those who I love. In order to get there, I need to generate a certain amount of money, be in a certain state of health, and create a lifestyle that allows me flexibility. Once you’ve got this stuff sorted in your mind, it’s a simple matter of setting aside time to work on achieving those dreams. I find it best to focus on just 2 or 3 ‘big’ things each year.

3. Do it – every day

Taking time to consider what truly matters takes you at least halfway to success. But, as much as the power of your mind is fairly incredible, you do have to actively take action if you want to move forward. At the start of this year I took up a 30-day challenge issued by Leo Babauta of Zen Habits. I can honestly say that it was one of the most worthwhile lessons I’ve learned in recent years – and so simple! All I did was set aside (minimum) the first 10 minutes of each day for something that was really important to me. The task I chose at the time was my writing. Getting through the entire challenge was tough, but incredibly rewarding. I don’t think I’ve ever written as much as I did in that month, and I’m quite certain it both improved my writing skills and set the tone for a productive year of blogging. And although I’ve reverted to bad habits on occasion, I’m pretty good these days at doing first things first, and am even learning not to worry if ‘second’ things don’t happen at all. Give it a go – I guarantee you’ll love the outcome!

4. Learn the art of acceptance – you’ll save yourself bucket-loads of stress

One of the best lines I’ve heard comes straight from the mouth of Al Pacino in The Devil’s Advocate (awesome movie, if a little disturbing!). As the big man puts it – “it is what it is”. I think that if you can learn to apply this mantra to various situations throughout your day, you’ll find that you become a much calmer (and therefore happier) person. I know I’m not the only one who harbors stress, ill-will, frustration within my mind. And to what end? Most things are never going to be as bad or as powerful as they initially seem, and even if they are, what’s the point of worrying about something you can’t change? It is what it is, and it will eventually pass. I love that part of the Serenity Prayer that goes “grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference”.

5. Don’t be afraid to snob convention and break the rules once in a while – even your own!

Courage to make change is possibly one of the greatest things that we can conquer. In most cases (and quite particularly when it’s something worth fighting for) the easy path is the one of least resistance. It’s always tough to go against the grain, whether it’s by following less-than-conventional nutritional wisdom, by questioning an ‘expert’ or power of some sort on an issue you just don’t quite agree with, by choosing to take up any sort of belief path, or activity, or even hobby that differs from that which your peers or society deem acceptable. But what’s the point of even living if you can’t at least try to be true to yourself? If that means making a stand and taking the flak for it, so be it. If it means a huge leap of faith in your career or personal life, well isn’t it worth the potential gain? And if it means you even have to redefine your own boundaries now and then, well then you really have conquered the art of living. In my mind at least! After all –

Don’t forget –

Life is Now. Press Play.

✨✨¬†Success Frequencies.

Let’s talk about them. Breathe them in. ALLOW them in. And then dial them TF in.

Are you ready?

There are certain ways of being, of operating, of thinking, and perhaps most in particular of expecting which are currently dictating your outcomes in every area of life.

You are, quite literally, coded. Programmed. Running on a frequency of … X.

With X being, well – whatever you see around you most days. Whatever you experience. Feel. Know to be true. Receive and hold onto. Receive and do not hold on to. Or do not receive at all.

There are certain things in your life which right now you can click your fingers and command to replicate, on repeat, and they do.

And there are other things which SHOULD be in your life, which you yearn to have in your life, which sometimes you get a glimpse or a taste of or even an entire mouthful, and then they’re gone, into the night, maybe never to return again, shrouded in mystery and frustration but yet at the same time that deeper part of you knows –

it’s not supposed to be like this.

It shouldn’t be.

I don’t accept it!

And I WILL move past.

You look into the future you see inside of you and you know that it is ALL real, ALL available, ALL true, ALL there for the taking. A virtual sushi train of wondrous life options, every one of ’em just a choice you can pluck off as it rolls on by! Don’t see what you want, not exactly? All you gotta do is ASK, and it’ll be freshly made for you!

Your belief around the impossible is OFF THE CHARTS.

And it always has been.

Your PROOF, of CREATING and ALLOWING the impossible is also pretty darn off the charts, if you do say so yourself. Which you don’t have to, because others do it for you!

It’s ALWAYS been this way for you, you’ve ALWAYS been able to dance between realities and choose the one you wanna keep.

But yet –

it feels, so much of the time, as though you’re teetering.

Teetering on the edge of will I / won’t I let myself FULLY go and receive, create, allow, BE –

or will I fall back into normal, into rules, into worries, into shoulds, into the dreaded dreaded fear that it’ll somehow all just stop working and I’ll find out there was never anything special about me at all, never anything wondrous about what I could do, and that I just somehow … fluked things for a bit.

Sometimes you’re CERTAIN which way you’re going to topple.

And other times you’re terrified you have no idea at all, and if you did you wouldn’t want to know.

But what you do know is this:

When things are working.

When things are flowing to and through and from you in the precise ways they should be.

When things are OH so yes.

When it’s all just coming together, the different areas of your business your money your life and YOU just rolling PERFECTLY, like a beautiful and impossible to replicate orchestra, pure MAGIC –

it’s not because of what you did.

It is not because of how you planned, followed the plan, did it right.

It’s not a list you ticked off that made it that you got to then GET.

It’s not because you followed RULES for success.

Or really anything at all.

It’s because you were playing life on a certain frequency. You were tapped in, dialled in, LEANING all the way in to something you can’t even fully describe but you KNOW when you’re in it.

You were, not to be too corny or cliche about it but we’ll say it anyway ’cause it’s true – one with life itself. Dancing the most beautiful dance of BEING FULLY YOU with the wind beneath your wings nothing other than God and truth and the very fabric of the universe, what else could it be?!

Put simply:

you had those Success Frequencies switched on to high AF, and you were using ’em.

Want to know how to do that more, in fact any time you choose, in fact with complete calm understanding of what it is you ARE doing and how to tap in and BE in that energy, that place, that receiving, at will?

It’s always been available.

It’s ALWAYS been right there for the taking.

EVERYTHING you’ve suspected this whole time is true.

And now?
We’re gonna get you understanding it (every last bit).

Living it (as naturally as breathing).

And UTILISING it to let life unwind to the places you’ve been waiting to be (the way it’s meant for you).
