About This Class

Reinvent Yourself and Your Life: 10 Exercises to Design and Live Your Ideal Life

This class is a series of ten fun and practical exercises that will help you to design, build, and start living your best life right now instead of wishing and waiting for it to happen.

It's a step-by-step guide to help you:

  • Define what you (truly) want
  • Create your road map (plan) for getting there
  • Build momentum (and accelerate your progress)
  • Make the journey more exciting

Doing these exercises will not only make your life more interesting and fulfilling, it’ll also make sure that you stay focused on what truly matters to you and not waste time and energy on what doesn’t.

I personally believe that taking the time to reflect upon what it means to us to live a good life and making our dreams come true is the greatest gift we can offer ourselves.

1. Welcome!: With everything that's been happening on the planets of the past few months. I think many of us have had to rethink or work or plans and projects for the future or lifestyle, and even sometimes their relationships. At least it's been true for me. But then I remembered this famous quote by Napoleon Hill. We said, within every adversity is unequal, a greater benefit. So why not use this time of great change to create an even more fulfilling life for ourselves. My name is Emily and my gotten creator and a meditation teacher from Montreal, Canada. And in this class I would like to share with you a three-step process that I've been using for the past few years to help me create a life that they love. It's something I do every year, usually around the new year. But I did it again recently because I felt a bit out of balance with everything that's happening. And it really helped me gain perspective and also decide what I want to create moving forward. So this process is divided into ten practical exercises that will help you first clarify what you want, what you want to experience to accomplish and become in all major areas of your life. Because I believe that, yes, we can achieve pretty much anything we want in life as long we know what we want. Next, you'll create a plan or your own personal roadmap with the exact steps you must take to make your ideal vision come through and ask quickly as possible. And the last few exercises will help you build momentum and start living your ideal life right now, because life happens now. So when we only focus on the future and don't live fully the present, we sort of miss out on life. This class also comes with a workbook that you can use to do the exercises. It's a fillable pdf, meaning that you can type, save, and modify your entries directly on your computer. Or if you prefer to have a physical copy of it, you can just print the PDF. The workbook is really meant to be a resource that you can keep in consult anytime you wish to remind yourself of your dreams of your goals and the actions you must take to make them come true. 7. 3 Things You Need to Succeed: as we've seen clearly, finding what you want is the first essential step to getting results. Next, you must define and focus on the most important activities to get you there. Lastly, you must keep going. You must have what we call grit. Having grip is being disciplined and person grin and having faith that you'll eventually achieve your goals and dreams. And here's how you can do that. In his book, The Slight Edge, Jeff Colson states that the one thing that will determine if a person will succeed in life or not is what he calls the slight edge. Basically, the slighted is the willingness to do perhaps unremarkable and easy things every single day , so be consistent and over a long period of time. So beeper severance until we obtain the results were seeking. It also requires having faith that the small activities air small tasks that are seemingly insignificant in the moment will deliver results over time. We must not give up when we don't see immediate results. We must keep going and be patient. Most people quit when you don't see results quickly. I'm one of them, but by doing so, we automatically lose for example, you probably not lose weight by changing your diet and going to the gym for a couple of weeks and then stepping both altogether. It won't happen eater. If you do a very intense workout and go on a strict diet just one day per month. What will give you results is if you eat well most days and exercise regularly over a considerable period of time. In the slight edge, Jefferson states that only 5% of the population naturally has disability. The rest of us, the other 95%. We must develop it if we want to succeed at anything in life and to develop the slight edge , we must be consistent for severance and patient. I personally love Will Smith, not just for his acting, but also for his wisdom. So here's what he says about success. At the center of bringing any dream into fission is self discipline. It's about getting comment of your mind to be able to choose actions that are in your own best interest. 99% of people are not willing to do what it takes to make their dreams come true. They're not willing to practice self discipline So here is my favorite definition of self discipline. Self discipline is the ability to make yourself do what you should do when you should do it , whether you feel like it or not. And you get Bill self disciplined by consistently doing the most important tasks and micro actions that you've defined and scheduled in your calendar. So you did that earlier in the course. Evan. When you don't feel like it, that's it. Very simple. In fact, the other. You'll have done the roadmap exercise earlier in the course, the easier it'll be to be disciplined because you'll know exactly what you're supposed to be working on to move the word your vision to move the word your idea life. And the last thing I want to talk about in this video is self trust. The most important yet subtle benefit of applying the slighted philosophy and also being disciplined is that you build trust in yourself, trust in your ability to do what it takes to attain your goals every time you choose not to give in to instant gratification in favor of your long term gold, for example, not eating a second piece of cake if your goal is to lose weight. You build trust in yourself that you can do what it takes to attain that goal. That you are the type of person who succeeds. Your goal is like a promise to yourself. Every time you break your promise, you sort of be three and diminish that trust. To build trust in yourself, you must keep your promises. Know that the trust in yourself that you build by being disciplined and one area of your life automatically transfers to the other areas. That's because you're building mental Stranz, and that stays with you in whatever you undertake. Then grid becomes part of your character and identity, and you become part of the 5%.
