Do you eat to live or live to eat?

Life is a journey, not a destination. Cliché saying, yet so true. Life, as I discover as I go, is as much about how you get where you’re going as where you go. Also, living your life to the fullest is a process that will take you your whole life to develop.

Along the way, there are sure to be frustrations and disappointments and setbacks. This is a natural part of life.

If somebody were to ask; how do you feel about your life today? Are you living every day in excitement? Do you love what you’re doing? Are you excited every single moment? Are you looking forward to what’s coming up next? Are you living your best life?  If your answer to any of the above is a no, maybe, or not sure, that means you’re not living your life to the fullest.

This really shouldn’t be the case, because your life experience is yours to create. Why settle for anything less than what you can get? You deserve nothing but the best. In the past years of my life, especially since I started doing things my way in 2008, I’ve been living every day to the fullest living each day like it was my last. I am determined not to be a ghost when I finally cease living. Word is, ghosts are spirits of dead people with unfinished businesses on earth.

Lessons I have learnt so far;

1. Live every day on a fresh new start. Don’t be held back by what happened yesterday, the day before, the week before, the year before, or even decades ago. 

2. Be true to yourself. Be an original version of yourself rather than be an exact duplicate of someone else.

3. Quit complaining. Stop complaining about your problems and work on them instead.

4. Be proactive. Stop waiting for others around you to do something and take action yourself instead.

5. Rather than think “what if,” think “next ti

me”. Block unhappy things from your mind; they are disempowering. Only focus on the things you can action on.  6. Focus on WHAT vs. How. Focus on WHAT you want first, before you think about HOW to do it. 

7. Create your own opportunities, go out there and create your own opportunities. 

8. Live more consciously each day. Stop sleepwalking through life. Your life is something to be experienced, not coasted through.

9. Be committed to your growth. In the Map of Consciousness, there are 17 levels of consciousness — from Shame to Enlightenment.


The higher your consciousness level, the richer your life experience. 

10. Know who you are and what you represent. Be clear of your personal identity. 

11. Define your life purpose. Set the mission statement for your life, one that will drive you to live your life to the fullest. 

12. Live in alignment with your purpose. 

13. Set your life commandments. Define your personal commandments to live your best life. What adages and principles do you want to follow in your life?

14. Discover your values. 

15. Hold yourself to the highest conduct. Have own set of ethics and principles. 

16. Stop putting life on hold. 

17. Create your life handbook; your personal manual which contains your mission statement, values, goals, personal strengths, blind spots, and action plans. 

18. Design your ideal life. Firstly, assess your life via the life wheel. Then, ask yourself what it takes to live a 10/10 life. 

19. Set your goals. After you design your ideal life, set your 5-year, 3-year, and 1-year goals. The more specific they are the better!

20. Take action on your goals and dreams. Create an action plan for your goals. 

21. Create your bucket list, which is a list of things to do before you die. Then, get out there to achieve them.

22. Don’t do things for the sake of doing them. Always evaluate what you’re doing and only do it if there is meaning behind them. Don’t be afraid to quit the things that don’t serve your path.

23. Do the things you love because life is too precious to be doing anything else. If you don’t enjoy something, then don’t do it. 

24. Discover your passion in life. What sets you on fire? 

25. Make your passion a full-fledged career. Then, start pursuing it. Stop working in a job you feel passionless about. 

26. Turn your passion into a huge success. Turn your passion into a multi-million pula business. 

27. Learn from criticism. Be open to criticism but don’t be affected by it. Criticism is meant to help you be a better person. Learn from it. 

28. Be positive. Is the glass half empty or half full? Only go with the things that empower you, not those that bind you.
