10 Keys to A Life of Uncommon Living

February 20, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 183

We all want to live an uncommon life. I know I do. As a coach, I value change and reinvention. I believe change is necessary for energizing your soul. For me, It's hard to stay in the routine for too long - I need a goal to pursue, a revelation to marinate on, a person to help. A key to living an uncommon life is by changing your perception. In order to see the fluidity of life, you must see it through a new eye. This may require daily refocusing. It's like refreshing your eye "browser." This is what we do with our computers when we want to clear the previous path. And it is so with our own lives, we need to refresh every now and then with a new direction, new relationships, new knowledge, new assignments, and whatever else that will jumpstart us out of the common to the uncommon. I have a question for you, "do you have a new eye or are you responding to life out of the old eye?" If you are responding to life out of the old eye, allow me to share some concepts on how to live the uncommon life.

It's important to see yourself as an enterprise and a brand. You are your own message. Ask yourself, what are you saying to people when they encounter you? Who and what do you represent? Uncommon living requires a wardrobe change. It's important to reinvent yourself 2-3 times in your life because there is so much untapped potential on the inside of you that it will take your lifespan to bring it all out. You must be active in the game of life -you must keep going because success comes through working it out. Giving up is not an option unless you know that you are absolutely in the wrong place. And even then, take what you've learned in that place and keep moving forward. Stop looking at the mountain top and purpose in your heart to start at the level where you know you fit. Then, advance up the mountain one step at a time. Cover all of your bases. Figure out what your goals are because doing nothing will cost you. Time is moving and before you know it you've been ushered into a new season. You don't want to repeat the same practices from the last season. Therefore, create weekly, monthly, yearly goals. You can get what you want as long as you can help other people to get what they want. In other words, don't live a selfish life. What you do for others, God will make happen for you. Listen to your dissatisfaction. Sometimes when you are unsatisfied, your heart may be trying to tell you something. Don't override your internal alarm system. You must see things that normal people don't see. Train your eye to see beyond what is there. Examine the different territories that you find yourself in. Learn to give more than you have. God's economy is vastly different from the world's economy. I know it doesn't make sense to give when you don't have anything, but be assured that when you sow or give into people's lives, you shall also reap. It's tied into God's Word AND the laws of nature. Get everyone away from you who doesn't believe and who don't agree with the plan for your life because they will pull on your motivation and enthusiasm. Stay connected to people who bring light into your life.
