There has been a lot of great things happen in my life over the past few years … since I took the leap into my own business. I am on track. In alignment with how I want my life to be.
My new website Create a Wealthy Life is live and I am on a mission to help others live their wealthy life … whatever that means for them. I see my job as giving people as much info as possible to help them decide which path they want to take – be it property investor, starting a new business or buying their first home.
Get rid of ‘would of, could of, should of’
Yet, there will always be things we will not do because of the ‘what if syndrome’ many of us are afflicted with. We either think we can’t do it, afford it or believe we are worthy of it.
It got me thinking about the infamous bucket list. A bucket of all the goals we want to achieve, dreams we want to fulfil and life experiences we want to have before we die. Yet, many of us will write this list and never ever do anything on it.
I want you to create one … just put 10 things on it like I have (at the bottom of this blog). Life goes by so fast; we get caught up in a flurry of day-to-day activities and sometimes it feels like life is going by at a hundred miles an hour. Part of Creating a Wealthy Life is having things to look forward to … not just as dreams but as experiences.
Not a ‘to do’ list
A bucket list is not a ‘to do’ list. It is a ‘must do’ list. I work hard in my business. I work hard so I can enjoy my life. It gives me pleasure to help others achieve their goals …so on the weekend and holidays I want to enrich my life with experiences I can remember with my partner, friends and family.
A bucket list is not meant to make you feel like you are racing against time but as a way of maximising our time, squeezing every drop of fun, goodness and delight out of it. Have you ever been a funeral where they read the Dash poem? It talks about the date you were born and date you die … but those are not the significant dates of YOUR life … it is the dash in between. Make the most of yours.
Questions to ask yourself
Here are some of the things I thought about as I put together my list:
What would I wish to do before I die?
What would if I had unlimited time, money and resources?
What have I always wanted to do but have not done yet?
Any countries, places or locations I want to visit?
What experiences do I want to have / feel?
What would I like to say/do together with other people? People I love? Family? Friends?
Are there any people I want to meet in person?
Here’s a few things on my bucket list:
Africa – Gorilla experience
South America – Sloth experience
Do more creative arts
Climb Machu Pichu
Have some cool parties
Interview a famous person
Pay it forward
Grow my business
Cross the Simpson Desert – doing this soon!!!
Buy a farm
Build my property portfolio
Have a bloody good time!
