The answers you need are never far away, you just need to know the right questions to ask...
In today’s podcast, I’m unpacking FIVE key questions that hone in on the FIVE lifestyle domains that my clients and I explore together and (I think) are essential for living a happy, whole-hearted, fulfilled life.
In this episode I'll share, not only where I've stumbled across success, but also where I struggle and how these 5 simple questions put a spotlight on how and where I need to change and grow.
It's popular and sexy to talk about 'magic formulas' for success, but the reality is a great life is never created in one single moment - it is a series of small, daily actions all moving in a positive direction and all aligned with your core purpose, that stack one upon the other to build monumental impact. It's doing the little things well. THAT is what these questions will help you to focus on.
I started out with 5 questions - linked to the 5 lifestyle domains - but I ended with SEVEN questions. The extra 2 bonus ones, I just couldn't leave out! These will bring it all together and give you some options for action as you set about designing your ultimate future. :)
Here's the highlights:
[3:39] Going through the Questions: Celebrate and acknowledge your positive choices. Choose small smart action steps to move in a positive direction.
[4:22] Question 1: How are you blending fun and adventure into your week? Fun and adventure are links to joy and happiness. Without these, people are not empowered. Joy is our strength. Fun and adventure bring spark. Joy and happiness are the most important part of creating a foundation to live a happy and positive lifestyle.
[5:55] Question 2: What choices are you making for a fit and healthy body? Our bodies are temples in which we live in. Investing in your body is investing into the overall quality of your life and well-being.
[7:43] Question 3: How are you making time for your partner and your relationship? Marriage doesn’t come without a cost; it takes work, time, effort and energy. Distance and connection with your partner makes you a happy person.
[9:26] Make God as the third strand in your marriage. Refocus your marriage and reconnect with God.
[10:22] Maximize great resources such as the 5 Love Languages Quiz and The Vertical Marriage. Make the positive intention, the positive step and do things together to connect over.
[10:56] Question 4: How are you making a positive connection to your family? All are connected, interlinked and overlapping. Family, including your support, positive social network, is one of the biggest predictors of future success. Take time to nurture and look after them
[13:08] Question 5: How are you pursuing a business or a mission that you believe in? Work that gives you a sense of purpose, a work that lives your soul is a key to your happiness. Make a passion project— even just a small action step.
[15:10] Bonus Question: Do you have a holistic life strategy that blends the 5 life domains together? Find confidence in having a clear plan. Synthesize and pull all the pieces together.
