What Does Art Have to Do With Fulfillment?
Imagine living a life where you wake up in the morning and you can’t wait to get out of bed to start working on a project that fills you with joy and excitement.
Imagine that your home expresses exactly who you are…every inch of it.
Imagine that you have enough time, space and energy to create loving relationships, beautiful moments, and meaningful products.
Imagine living a life where you achieve everything you think you can.
Wow! Imagine it!
The beauty is that you can, so today, let’s decide that you will always be moving toward this amazing and dare I say it, fulfilling life!
But how do you do that? How does one create the most exceptional life imaginable?
How about you start with one question.
Have you ever imagined how grand, how exciting, how extraordinary your life can be?
Well, let’s do it now!
Let’s figure out YOUR EXCEPTIONAL LIFE!
Here are a few questions to get you started?
What job or career would you do to bring you immense happiness?
How much money would you have to earn to allow you to live the life you want?
How much traveling would you do?
Where would you go?
Would you throw large parties or galas, and/or small intimate dinners?
Would you decorate more for the holidays?
Would you read more?
Would you write more?
How much time would you spend with nature?
How big would your closet be?
Would you plant a garden?
Vegetables or flowers?
How much property would you want to own?
Would you live by water, in the mountains or somewhere in between?
Would you live in the city or in the country?
Would you cook more or less?
Would you pray more or less? : )
Would you laugh more?
Would you pay more attention to certain people?
Would you pay less attention to certain people?
How much time would you spend discovering how to be a better person?
Would you spend the time to discover your purpose in life?
How much time would you spend creating a spiritual/religious life?
How much time would you spend taking care of others?
How much time would you spend taking care of yourself?
Would you have pets? Small or large?
Would fitness be important?
What would you want to learn about just for fun?
How kind would you be?
How patient would you be?
How much love would you give?
How much beauty would you create?
How much goodness would you spread?
Wow! I know! There are so many ways to fully engage in life! It's so exciting!
So, now that you have taken a look at what your exceptional life could be, how do you ensure that you can achieve it?
Well, you follow the same rules of becoming an ARTIST!
You accept the challenge of the life you want to create.
You define the rules of the life you want to create.
You master the crafts of the life you want to create.
You infuse yourself into the life you want to create.
You elevate yourself toward fulfillment of the life you know you can live!
*The key to a fulfilling life is the word "full." Is your life filled with the best things you can create in life?
Wow! I'm going to let that sink in.
I love that!
Now, of all of the answers you have given, which one could you start working toward achieving today?
Go ahead. Pick just one
Because when you do you are putting yourself on the path toward living a fulfilling life.
That’s pretty amazing when you think about it! You have found the path.
That’s a big deal!
People spend their entire lives looking for this path but never find it.
To know that you can reflect on your life and say, "Well, I've left nothing in the reserve tank, I have left it all on the table. I have lived a fulfilling life."
THAT is a big deal!
Now remember, you may never achieve ALL those amazing things on your list, but you can certainly work towards them and still live an exceptional life!
And if for no other reason by doing so, you not only enrich your own life, but everyone around you.
It is your choice.
It‘s your life.
You can create it.
You Are An ARTIST
I see it.
Have an exceptional 2019!
