The Six Keys to Living the Golden Life

What is the Golden Life? – Isn’t it when life is going great, when everything feels right, when life is synchronistic with all forms of living? Isn’t it when one is fully expressing oneself? Isn’t it when you’re free from worry or concern, when your inner voices are at peace and the chatter in your brain is quiet?

Maybe it’s when your dreams are finally realized or you’re on a journey or path to fulfilling a dream. Everything is alright with you and the world.

Or perhaps it’s when you can honor, love, embrace and appreciate all of who you are – the good, the bad and the down right ugly.

The Golden Life, in my opinion, is all of the above mentioned scenarios: freedom to be with life as it is and a desire or drive for something greater than your thoughts, feelings and emotions.

Below are the Six Keys to Living the Golden Life. The process of bringing a greater understanding of how they work begins here. The six keys properly used will undoubtedly lead to a golden life.

Key #1 –  The Power of Vision – Vision is the foundation of all of life. Without it, one wanders around with hopes of at least a fleeting moment of fulfillment, excitement and/or happiness. Ever heard someone say, life is good, but there’s still something missing, or I’m just not happy?

Vision, like the foundation of a building or home, is a solid foundation from which you live your life. Think of the concept of a contractor building a home.  When the home is being built, a foundation must first be laid, prior to building the walls etc. If the foundation isn’t solid, neither will the home be. The homeowner is then subjected to future structural challenges which lead to many other things.

Your life is no different. Vision is the foundation and it must be solid in order to build a life of power, passion and purpose filled with joy, excitement and laughter, otherwise your life is subjected to unnecessary challenges. It all starts with vision.

Key #2 – Exploring Your Vision – Some call it your heart song, others call it your spiritual calling, many may refer to it as purpose. Either way, you must be willing to find that sweet spot within that reveals your vision. Because it is the foundation for your life, exploring vision is mandatory to all other steps.

Exploration requires Persistence, Perseverance, and Patience to truly find it. Do you have all three?

Key #3 – Articulating Your Vision – Never underestimate the power of the spoken word. Language gives birth to life. It is language that gives us life’s experiences. If you think about it, if there were no words spoken how would we interact with life as we know today? It is hard to imagine isn’t it?

One must be willing to give language to vision. It is also important to be sure the words you give it ignite power and passion in YOU when you speak them.

Key #4 –  Identifying Life’s Seductions – Being seduced is never fun when you don’t want to be. If you find that you’ve strayed away from your vision, it is reasonably safe to say you’ve somehow been seduced. The question is how did it happen? Weren’t you paying attention?

There’s always a sense of power you experience when you have choice in how your life goes. It’s not so wonderful when you don’t. Knowing when you’re about to be seduced and choosing not to be can be amazingly powerful and puts you right back in the driver’s seat of your life.

Key #5 – Dealing with Life Seductions – But suppose you didn’t catch yourself and all of a sudden you are seduced. Life caught you off guard.

Most of life seductions aren’t planned or even noticed until it’s too late. Recognition of how you got there, what drove you there in the first place and how you can return is where you build your personal muscle in dealing with life seductions.
Vision, being the foundation of life, can drive you back to your rightful power seat.

Key #6 – Expressing your vision in the World – After the vision is crystal clear, articulated powerfully and you’ve identified the life seductions, you’re now ready to express your vision in the world. Expressing vision is an opportunity to bring it alive to expand and grow.

The expression of your vision is determined by you, the creator. So it can be as big or small as you want. The world to you may be your family, while to another it maybe the planet earth.

You have the final decision as to how you express your vision. In addition, the scope of the world is defined by she who holds the vision.

The Six Keys brings to life new meaning and opens the doorway to freedom, fulfillment, joy and happiness. You must be willing to take the keys and make them your own as you experience everyday living. After all is said and done, it is up to you.

The power lives within you and it’s always been there.

The Power of Vision and Living Your Life On Purpose

Create The Vision – The vision serves as a context for your business & your life. It shapes your thoughts, your feelings and your actions. It’s the big picture and it expresses a part of who you are. We will start with helping you create both a personal vision and a vision for your business. If you already have a vision, we will help you identify and eliminate activities that are inconsistent – leaving you with access to more personal power, clarity & confidence.

What is your vision? Where do you see yourself 5 years from now? What about 10 years? How about 25 years from now? Where do you see your organization? What are you creating for you life, your family and your community? These are the kinds of questions to start you on the way to creating a powerful vision. Start with your vision. Speak your vision! Be your vision! Next, do only the things that are consistent with your vision. Then, you will have every thing that comes with your vision.

Set The Goal – Goal setting is a critical element to your success. A goal must be specific & measurable. It has a definite date & time for its accomplishments. Its fulfillment should be inspiring to you and others in your life or business. Most people set goals based on what they know they can do or what they think they can do. We invite you to set goals based on what you want.

Creating goals from what you know or what you think is from the past. Creating goals from what you want, your life or your dreams is from the future. The purpose of the goal is to increase your awareness. For example, let’s say that you are just getting started in a part time professional services business like consulting or coaching. During your first year, you generated $25,000 in revenue. You have been contemplating going into business full-time. Based on the $40,000 a year salary of your current 50 – 60 hours per week full-time job, you decide that you will need at least $40,000 – $50,000 per year as a coach or consultant.

This goal is based on what you know or what you think you can accomplish. However, what you really want is to earn at least $75,000 per year while only working 25 – 35 hours per week. You want to work from home and spend more quality time with your young children. If you would be willing to put aside what you know for a moment and look from what you want, you would began to ask the kinds of questions required to increase your awareness. There are many people who earn $75,000 – $100,000 or more each and every year. The only advantage that they have is that they are aware of how to do it. They approach what they want and how to get it from separate places. They set the goal first, and then figure out how.

Do you have life and business goals? Are they written down? Do you review them regularly? Have you shared them with others? Where do you see yourself 5 years from now? What would you have accomplished? What about in 3 years? How about a year from today or 90 days from now? What will you accomplish in the next 30 days or even next week? These kinds of questions combined with written goals, establishes a strong foundation for success in life & business.

On our radio show today, I asked my guest co-hosts – (Visionary for Women, Author & Poet – Lisa Thomas along with The Reality Coach and Author of Your Megaginormous Rules – Fred Tutwiler) to share their thoughts with our radio audience. We were also joined by the Creator of No-Out-There.com – Llenar (aka Danita Bragg).
