We all want to live a complete, happy, healthy and wealthy lifestyle, am I right? But how do we really achieve it? Is it really achievable?
I am sure that at some point, you have said to yourself – "I want to achieve that health and body goals" or "I want to get a fulfilling career with big dollars" or even saying "I want to travel the world!" Or how about "I want to be happy being with the man/woman of my dreams".
But is there really a secret formula to help us get these goals?
While there is no genie that can grant us three wishes or magic spell that can give us everything that we want, there is certainly a process that can help us unlock our inner potential and turn these dreams into a reality. And THAT is what I am very excited and happy to share with you today on the podcast!
Today, we're going to unpack the 5 key principles of Lifestyle Design – that you can use to start living YOUR maximised life. This is the exact same process I've used to redesign my own life and now use every week to take my clients from ordinary to amazing in just 90 days.
These 5 key principles are taken from the world of product design - where I first learned how to create - and translated to help people discover their own different versions of success in the domains of business, career, family, romance, health, fun and adventure.
To get you started on your own creative Lifestyle Design adventure, there is also an awesome free resource that you can use >> the Lifestyle Design Quiz
For now, get your pen out and get ready to take some notes as you listen to today’s podcast.
Here's the highlights of what we're going to cover:
[7:01] Phase 1 is CLARITY – what do you really want out of life? Similar to setting a goal, you need to identify first what is it that you really want to achieve. This is your foundation, and you build everything from here.
[7:05] Phase 2 – work around IDENTITY – who are you? What is that special something that You are called to bring to the world? From that we develop VISION – while clarity tells you what you want out of life - a vision is a clear sense of purpose – and from that we develop a goal-statement.
[8:15] Phase 3 – is our creative EXPLORATION. It's the fun stage – ideation, creative concepts, play with solutions, wild ideas + research new possibilities.
[8:58] Andrew shared a quote from one of his favourite authors Joseph Campbell – “If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it's not your path. You make your own path with every step you take”.
[9:26] Phase 4 is REFINEMENT – this is where we turn ideas into strategy. Not all ideas are considered design. You need to bring all the best bits of your vision into ONE cohesive, well thought out, achievable plan that can be acted out without too much extra effort, energy or thought. THAT is a lifestyle design strategy.
[12:10] Phase 5 and finally, last step – ACCOUNTABILITY & HABITS – once you have the plan in place – that final step is living it out – this is not always as easy as it sounds and that is why its helpful to have a coach – someone who can keep you on track – someone to help you to close those feedback loops and stack up win after win on the journey towards holistic, lifestyle success.
What are you waiting for? Go ahead and take the first step!
