For those of you who have followed me on this wondrous journey (podcast listeners and people on the blog) that features a lot of what Lisa Nichols had said in her Abundance Now book are probably wondering what’s next.
What is the most immediate thing you can do to start living abundantly, building your future, and establishing your legacy? Take action!
It’s time to decide what you want, create a plan to pursue it, then move forward—regardless of your fear, your lack of experience or knowledge, your lack of resources, or anything else.
Those things you’re afraid to do, do them afraid! You will learn along the way. Remember, the CEO of Spartan Race was going through hell at one point in his life and saw that there was an ultra-marathon and several other “batshit crazy” events approaching in his local area – he signed up. IMMEDIATELY. What did that do? Disrupted the bodies biochemistry.
Begin by getting crystal clear about what you want in the 12 areas of your life (or the eight categories of life that I’ve talked about in Glenn Harold’s book). Determine the relationships you want, the career or work you want to do, the physical rewards you want to enjoy—all the hallmarks of your abundant life.
Remember the Four E’s I’ve talked to you about.
Enrichment – of your whole Self, not only will you be able to better pursue that abundance, but you’ll enjoy it a lot more as you move into exciting new activities, directions, and opportunities.
Enchantment in your Relationships—the feeling of delight and magic you get from the people who surround you, support you, and encourage you. Shake off the effects of the toxic people in your space; the energy drainers; and reach out for people who make you stand on your tippy-toes. I want you to become intentional about the quality of your relationships—not just the current ones, but the new ones you want to form. I want you to become deliberate about the caliber of people you spend time with, learning how to seek out those people who inspire you to do better, create more, play bigger, and win more often.
Having people in your life who feel your social circle but do more taking than giving, get rid of them. If you flock with the losers, you’ll end up a loser.
“Engagement you get from your Work, your business, or your career. I’m convinced that you have a calling in your life, a life assignment that commands your time, talent, and treasures. It’s up to you to recognize whether you’re in that calling now—or whether you need to shift into it, using your current “job” as an investor in your exciting and breathtaking future. There is so much opportunity out there to thrive—but at all times, strive to make it work for you. Strive to achieve harmony (but not balance) between the time you spend on your work and the time you dedicate to family, hobbies, and rest and renewal.” – Lisa Nichols
The legacy, which I’ve talked about, is important. Stop calling your job A JOB and look at it from an investment standpoint. Just like sleeping, we spend another 6-10 hours a day (depending on your career field) on your “job”…..so start investing and figuring out what new skills you need to acquire to get to the next level.
Endowment – Eliminating those old-money mantras. The negative beliefs that was programmed within our minds at a young age whether it was economical, geographical, social, etc….it’s time to create new beliefs about money. There’s a money affirmation on YouTube that Bob Proctor made in courtesy to Mind Valley which is basically him repeating an affirmation over and over for 30 minutes. Stop putting money in the same sentence with scarcity.
For anyone who has questions about any of the podcasts or want to leave a comment about the Lisa Nichols segment, you’re more than welcome to do so.
Until then, stay tuned for the next book!
