5 simple tips for awakening your ideal life

Living an ideal life means something different to everyone. Some of us wish to be rich, powerful and famous, while others would prefer a simple, quiet life. Whatever your ideal life looks like, there is a way you can create it. Here are 5 simple tips for awakening your ideal life.

“There is no greater gift you can give or receive than to honor your calling. It is why you where born and how you become most truly alive”
-Oprah Winfrey

If you are unhappy with your life, you have to change something. And that means taking inspired action. Your life will not change by accident or by luck; it will change by conscious effort applied by YOU and only you. There are no quick fixes on the path to awakening, but there are several basics that you need to cover in order to awaken your ideal life.


Have a clear vision.

In order to create your ideal life, you must know what it looks like. Spend time fantasising about the life you wish to create. Where are you? Who is with you? Be sure to cover all aspects of your existence like your career, relationships, spirituality, and your health and wellbeing. The clearer your vision, the easier the steps required to create it will appear.

Forgive past hurts.

In order to move forward and awaken your ideal life, you must release the attachment and pain of your past experiences. Ask yourself, who am I yet to forgive? Get access to a counsellor or healer to help you resolve your emotional blocks and give yourself the permission to be free.

Commit to change.

As you make the choice to create the best life for yourself you will come across resistance, from yourself and even from your family and friends. It is difficult sometimes for those around us to accept that we are moving on, and therefore they may attempt to sabotage you. It is in these moments that you must find your inner resolve and stay focused on what it is you want.

Expand your knowledge.

If you find that you are the smartest person in a room then you are in the wrong room. Seek out opportunities to place yourself in the company of people who are living the kind of life you want. Listen to audio books, watch YouTube videos, read books and blogs; become passionate and unrelenting in the pursuit of knowledge. Building a new life means using tools that you didn’t understand before. Find them in others. Success leaves clues.

Take action.

All of the knowledge in the world does not work unless it is applied. If you want to learn to be a chef, you can take classes and read books on cooking, but until you get into the kitchen and use your hands, you are limiting your growth. We can only achieve as much as we are willing to risk failing. Step into the fire and fail forwards.

“Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.”
-Samuel Beckett

In the end we truly only regret the chances we didn’t take. If you are unhappy where you are, make the effort to change and awaken the life of your dreams.
