Great Life - 3 Keys to Make Your Life Great and Fulfil Your Purpose

I know you want to have a great life and want to fulfil your purpose in life. I also know that this is not the easiest thing for you to do. It takes a lot of work and effort on your part. At times you may even feel like it's not worth it and feel like giving up. Here are 3 keys that will help you along your journey.

1. Educate yourself.

It's easy to overlook the importance of continuing to educate and improve yourself. However, without doing this you are setting yourself up to fail. For you to have a great life and fulfil your purpose you must constantly be growing. The more you grow the more you will be able to accomplish in your life.

2. Understand that you are here for others.

If you think that you are here to just please yourself you will have a miserable life. You were never meant to take, take, and take. Some of the most fulfilling times you will ever have in life are when you are able to give back to others. It's ok to make a great life for you but it's important to help others as well. The more you give the more fulfilled you will be.

3. Plan to be great.

This is one of the most overlooked keys to living a great life and fulfilling your purpose. You must plan to make it so. If you are just hoping that things will fall into place one day you will be waiting forever. Don't let your life dictate where you go. Instead, you tell life where you are going to go and then make it so.

The Greatest Key to Success in Life is to Visualize Your Dream Goals Today!

"Don't aim for success if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally. "- David Frost

It has been said many times that true success follows the willing. But you must be more than just willing when it comes to finding out what the true key to success in life really is. To achieve success, you have to have realistic goals in life that you aspire to on a daily basis. There is a real human desire in each of us that compels us to go faster, deeper and higher when it comes to building boats, airplanes and military weaponry that moves our society along at paces that were never thought possible only a few decades ago.

That real physical urge to excel at building new and better technology should also be tapped into by you so you can also achieve greatness in life. If you really enjoy writing, for instance, you should immediately buy a laptop no matter the cost, and start writing every single day without exception. What this will do is open you up to other ways of making money on-line for one thing, and this will allow you to see that you can actually provide yourself a decent income by doing what you actually love doing.

By really applying your writing skills to your articles that you will be submitting to websites that pay for each article you submit, you will soon start to see how to generate more of an income if you concentrate on using keyword density so that thousands of web surfers will be able to find your quality pieces of work without any problem whatsoever. This will in turn make your name semi-famous in the internet world and you will soon have hundreds of admirers that will subscribe to your writing to ensure that they never miss any articles that you will be publishing in the future.

If you dream constantly of becoming a millionaire within the next ten years, don't let anybody take that dream away from you. Are you aware of the fact that there are now more self-made millionaires in America than at any other time in world history? That statistic merely illuminates the fact that dreams can be achieved by anybody if they focus on taking the right steps to generate every break they need in life to turn their dreams into reality.

If you haven't done so already, you need to pick up a pen and paper and write down your top five dream goals in life right now. If you cannot think of any goals to achieve in the near future, you are just embracing failure. When successful individuals took that first step in achieving real greatness in their lives, every single person was dreaming of their life goals every single hour of their lives. You need to do the exact same thing.

A dream without a deadline is just a wish. The only way to turn that wish into reality is to set up a time frame for reaching your goals which will allow you to formulate a step-by-step plan that you can use like a business plan that a start-up company needs to guarantee future financial earnings. Once you make a commitment to getting published in a magazine in exactly six months from now, for example, you will need to set up a plan to query no less than eight publishers a week regarding a future article that you can write for them immediately.

If you continue to do that for six straight months, odds are that you will have at least two offers from smaller publications that will allow you to achieve this worthy dream goal. After you have been published twice, your next goal should be to see your next two articles be published in more established publications such as Rolling Stone or Newsweek.

Without giving your dreams and aspirations specific deadlines, you are not using that key to success in the proper way. Remember that desire and aspirations are only elements in the equation that will bring you true happiness in your quest for attaining your dreams in life.

Success in Life – 3 Keys to Creating Win-Win Goals

I have never met a successful person that doesn't know how to create and achieve great goals. The odds are that you were never taught how to make win-win goals that would actually set you up for success. There are ways to create goals that are achievable and easier then you think. Here are 3 keys to helping you create win-win goals.

1. Inspirational.

The goals that you set in your life need to be inspirational to you. If you are not inspired by thought of reaching your goal then you won't have any real desire to reach it. Don't set a goal just because you think that is what you should do. Whenever you are inspired to do something you will be excited and motivated to do whatever you need to do to reach it.

2. Specific.

All of the goals that you set need to be very specific. By making your goals specific you will know exactly what you are working for. The more specific your goals are the better. You see, life will give you exactly what you demand of it. If one of your goals is to get a raise then you are leaving a lot of room for interpretation. Instead, be very specific on what type of raise you want, how much you want, and when you want it by.

3. Make achievable steps.

One of the best ways to make a win-win goal is to make sure you break it up into achievable steps. You can get so excited about reaching a goal that you make it so big that when you look at it the next day it overwhelms you. Instead, break your goal down into smaller more achievable steps that are easier for you to do.

Relieve Your Stress with Relaxation

When you feel stressed out, usually one of the best things to do is to give your body and mind some rest and simply take it easy and relax. But relaxation can be different for different people.

For example, watching television is a type of relaxation for some people, although this is not what many professionals will say. They believe that when you watch television, all of the assorted commercials with advertising and loud sounds, etc. produce stress. But if you have a remote and mute all of those, you may actually have a relaxing experience with a good program.

One method of relaxation that you may like is called transcendental meditation. To do this, you basically repeat soothing sounds as you are meditating in order to reach a state of total relaxation.

Another popular method of relaxation that you may opt for is called acupuncture. Known to decrease blood pressure, this technique is practice basically by starting the release of as endorphins or chemical compounds for the brain. These help relax your muscles and ease any panic, pain or anxiety that may be present.

Breathing techniques and exercise can also help you relax. Practice slowing your breathing, taking in long, deep breaths with positive, good thoughts, then exhaling negative, stressful thoughts and feelings with slow breathing outwards. Check with a fitness trainer and your healthcare provider to get into a good exercise routine, too. The healthier the body, the healthier the mind and more relaxed and less stressed out you'll be overall.

Another popular method of relaxation is yoga, somewhat similar to acupuncture. You can practice with or without music, choosing a yoga position and meditating in order to relax and reduce your stress.

Any of several different types of messages can also help your relax and relieve stress. So can biofeedback, a training program with sessions generally about a week apart, and hypnosis, a healthy alternative for people who don't have much of a clue about relaxing, and for those with stress related health problems, and medications prescribed by doctors.

In summary, there are many different relaxation techniques. And these are only some of them. Check into the ones that sound interesting to you and delve into them further with help form your local library and online articles and other resources. Because relaxation can be of great use to you, once you build a technique or two into your lifestyle. So choose wisely, something you think you can do on a regular basis.

Don't Tell Me It Can't Be Done 'Cause I Finished It Yesterday

At the intersection of optimism and failure is resiliency - the ability to bounce back from failure or set backs. Resiliency is a major topic in positive psychology because it is the one trait that can mean the difference between success and failure. We engage resiliency because something did not work out, we failed - a process, a marriage, a trial, a child in school, a science experiment, a product design. Somewhere someone, or something, failed. Carefully crafted hopes are crushed, dreams broken, plans stopped. And then, we pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and begin again.

We have to. If we don't, we have unfinished goals, we find ourselves ruminating over the might have beens and what ifs. One of the biggest obstacles people have in learning to become resilient is learning to ignore other people around them who tell them, "Stop, you've tried hard enough" or "You are wasting your time" or "How many times are you going to try this until you see it won't work?"

I keep a saying on my desk: "....yes I said yes I will Yes." - Molly Bloom, Ulysses. It reminds me to keep on going, to start over, to realize that everyone who says it can't be done is in my way and I have to tune them out.

Martin Seligman, PhD is head of the Positive Psychology Center at The University of Pennsylvania and he explains why optimism is good. When asked how can people start shifting from pessimism to optimism, he replied:

Dr. SELIGMAN : I think the way most people start is to find out the costs of being a pessimist. As a pessimist, it's always wet weather in the soul, they don't do as well at work, and they get colds that will last all winter. They find themselves failing in crucial situations and their relationships go sour very easily. So when people have those kinds of hurts, if they can find that there is something useful in positive psychology, that's where people start.

Dr. Seligman is a pessimist he tells us, but as author of the book, Learned Optimism, he has discovered and written about the techniques that keep people resilient, reframing, optimistic and prolific. Dr. Seligman has said that the number of his failures is huge, too many to count. So he doesn't bother - he just starts a new project and on he goes. He is the author of many books, respected academic researcher and stands as testimony to those who said it can't be done. He overcame all the nay sayers who said academia will never accept positive psychology. It was the most popular class at Harvard last year and the research world is spilling over to the therapy arena with the many ways positive psychology works to increase people's optimism and happiness.
