10 Simple Steps To Abundant Dynamic Living
Is your life fulfilling? Exciting? Amazing? If not, why not?
Life is meant to be lived – and very few of us actually live life to its fullest potential. Most of us live a dark shadow of what our life could be – in fact, when you get right down to it, many people don’t even consider what their lives could be!
But what if I told you that everything you want out of life is actually not out of your reach?
Jack Canfield, one of the most respected self-success gurus in the world says:
”Everything you want is out there waiting for you to ask. Everything you want also wants you. But you have to take action to get it.” ~ Jack Canfield
I know, this probably sounds hypey, and too good for this world… but Canfield has the results to prove it:
- Canfield and his joint author Stephen Covey were the first authors to sell a million copies of their book (“Chicken Soup for The Soul” – in one day!
- Jack Canfield has a record of one single author having 7 books on the New York Bestseller list on a single day!
In his teachings on visualization for wealth attraction, he almost goes as far as to suggest that you can create your own luck… to supercharge your chances of success. Given his consistently awesome results you’d have to agree he knows what he’s talking about, wouldn’t you?
If you want an amazing, fulfilling, and exciting life, I may just have the formula in the following steps for an abundant dynamic life…
Dynamic living - the technical definition
Now, there is a technical definition of dynamic living that I find to be heady… and hazy. You can find it here, and it goes like this:
“Living dynamically is a way of life which recognizes that there are no fixed points in existence: even as one ‘goal’ is being achieved another is being created [continuous innovation], and infinite numbers of ‘opportunities’ appear and disappear in every moment… and that if we consciously prepare ourselves and pursue what appears to be the most fruitful path we are more likely to live useful and fulfilling lives.
Dynamic living means you pursue the most honorable and beneficial path in life both for yourself and for the wider society.
Dynamic living is a depth approach to life, in which moment-by-moment pragmatism in action is grounded and directed by deeply held conviction.”
My simple definition of dynamic living
For simplicity, let’s go with the dictionary definition. Here’s how the Concise Oxford Dictionary defines the word dynamic:
“Characterized by constant change or activity --> full of energy and new ideas” [= vibrant]
When you analyze Jack Canfield’s assertion above, what I understand by it is that if you set your sights in advance on your amazing and exciting goals that you want to reach that will fulfill your life, and then you live your life “dynamically” in such a way that what you want has no choice but to come to you, then you you’ll get all the fulfillment, excitement, and zest you want out of life!
A vibrant life…
Try implementing these steps below in your daily living and you just might attract everything you want out of life:
Determine why you’re here
Everyone needs a purpose to their life, and if you don’t have one, then you either should find one or make one. Having a purpose means that you live for something important. It may be important only to your family, or your friends, or your company, or yourself – but having a purpose makes a difference – sometimes a major difference.
Following a purpose in your life means that you’ll always know where you should be going, what you should be doing. When you have a purpose, you can begin to design your future…
“Spectacular achievement is always preceded by spectacular preparation.” ~ Robert Schuller
Live each day with enthusiasm
Greet the new day with joy in your heart. Meet each friend and acquaintance with appreciation. Enjoy each new encounter; relish each bend and twist in the road of life. And whatever your goals are, relish the belief that you too can become phenomenally successful…
“Every day I get up and look through the Forbes list of the richest people in America. If I’m not there, I go to work.” ~ Vinnie Rege
Learn from everyone
Not everyone is a great positive role model – but each can stand as an example to you – if only as a bad example! Examine the lives of people you trust and admire. Emulate their good traits. Discard any bad traits.
“We learn something from everyone who passes through our lives… Some lessons are painful, some are painless... but, all are priceless.” ~ Unknown
Help others where you can
Provide service when you can do so. Help make the world a better place.
“Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others. Unsuccessful people are always asking, “What’s in it for me?” ~ Brian Tracy
Examine the beautiful things life offers
Listen to the birds, view the sunrise, watch the sunset.
“One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today. Have the wisdom to savor the simple things. The wonderful memories that they bring will add more value to your life than any of the material toys we spend so much life energy pursuing.” ~ Dale Carnegie
Concentrate on the positive aspects to your life and minimize the negative areas.
“Most of the shadows of this life are caused by standing in one's own sunshine.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Associate with like-minded positive people
Stay away from the naysayers. Nothing kills people’s dreams and aspirations than the negative attitudes, cynicism, and criticism from those around them.
“The only thing more accurate than incoming enemy fire is incoming friendly fire.” ~ Murphy’s Laws of Combat
Embrace new experiences
Never pull away from personal growth opportunities.
“Renewal is the principle and the process that empowers us to move on an upward spiral of growth and change, of continuous improvement." ~ Stephen Covey
Embrace every good chance that comes your way
This might involve taking some risks!
“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.” ~ Helen Keller
Make your slogan “can do,” not “might do” or “won’t do.”
“When you get right down to the root of the meaning of the word ‘succeed’, you find that it simply means to follow through. ~ F.W. Nichol.
In conclusion …
Whatever kind of “dynamic” life you’ve imagined for yourself, you can probably achieve it. But you have to take action and do what it takes to achieve it.
Distinguish this day… as the day you really started to align things such that what you want in life – that also wants you, remember? – starts manifesting in your life! Most of these interventions above probably won’t cost you a dime!
