Life is What You Make It. "Did you hear me?"

 "Life is What You Make It."

You've probably heard that phrase so many times in modern culture that you just don't listen to it anymore; it's become just some words in the background of your busy life. It's used by advertisers, children's TV shows, sports commentators and of course banged out on social media and often with pretty pictures.

The intent of course is to inspire you to buy a product or at least feel better about it and yourself and often by normal people who hope to inspire someone else or at least lift their moment. But over use has made it bland and it's lost its impact.

The challenge for writers, especially writers of self development books is finding a way to motivate people who read their books without using cliche's that have become part of the background noise of life. 

Because . . . . the phrase itself although over-used is still true. At its heart are simple things;

Make good decisions

Take action

Communicate effectively.

Learn to do these things better and your life gets better. Learn to do these things amazingly well and guess what happens to your life? 

The most important person you communicate with is yourself. Remember that, if you recall nothing else over the next few days. Get your internal communication right and you can take on anything.

Of course I'm going to ask you to use my book to help you get the life that you want but you don't have to as there are lots of resources from other writers who offer different approaches and ideas. 

My book is written in an easy to read style with no flammary, no smoke and mirrors, no lengthy unnecessary explanations, no filling up with flowery prose; just straightforward things to do that will make your life wonderful. Follow through with the actions and your life will get better. 

The only thing I ask is for commitment. If you start, you must finish. 

The biggest failing most people experience is not following through. Sure it's great starting with enthusiasm and high energy; but the trick is to maintain that activity and you'll learn how not to give up in the book. What you do everyday really makes a difference.

Life is what you make it. Did you hear me and understand what I meant? 

When do you want to start making it wonderful?

Have a great day.

Happy? If you always do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always got!

Happiness. . . .  .    .     .      .        .

That sometimes elusive state of mind that enables you to enjoy the world, your life and the important people with you on your journey. Happiness doesn't just happen to you, you must make it and if you can't make it you must at least be ready to receive it; if by chance it stumbles cheerfully and accidentally into you like a little child chasing a kitten.

Yes that's right YOU control how happy or not you are; we'll come back to this shortly.

Some people truly believe that the only route to happiness is through having huge amounts of money so they can buy all the things they've always wanted and travel to places they can only dream about. I can absolutely assure you that money, especially lot's of it, on it's own, will not make you happy. It will ease some of life's pressures, but it brings new stresses and strains that you cannot imagine. If you are not happy before you become wealthy, you will not be when you are.

Apart from looking back through recent history at very rich and famous people who have done crazy things because they are unhappy and worse have given up the gift of life; I personally know very wealthy people who were not happy with life, until they had help, either from me or others.

Happiness is in your mind. How you talk to yourself, how you respond to events, what you decide to do; these are all actions that you control

The problem nearly everyone has, is you think you are in control and procrastinate about any self improvement action you ought to take because of the illusion of your purposeful identity. Meaning that you say "this is just who I am" to yourself or "I'm OK, it's just a bad day," or "I haven't got time."  
Creating A Wonderful Life helps you take action. In small steps you learn about what to do and how to do to break down the barriers that have been holding you back. You'll learn how to talk to yourself effectively and rub out negative self talk, how to communicate with other people to get positive results and how to make better decisions amongst many other important life skills. Please don't put off any longer the chance that you have for a wonderful life.

There is no other way of changing your life into a wonderful one unless you take action.
