Work less, Live more: How to create satisfaction in your life.

I recently came across a very talented person’s inspiring blog site.

This blogger, has a personal belief, to ‘work less and live more’, and I thought, that would be awesome!

So, what do you think?
Could you work less and live more?

Imagine it.
There would be no alarm clocks.
No uniforms or suits to pull on.
No need for the breakfast rush.
No need for the commute.
No need for the colleagues who put you down or the boss who orders you around like no end.

There would be,
Lots of parties
Lots of opportunity to try new things
More family time
Less stress
More personal choice
Less money
A simpler life.

The question you have to ask yourself is, “are you willing to trade your time, your life for your job?”
If yes, then that’s okay, read no more.
If not, then ask yourself “are you willing to trade your time, your life, for something that you love doing?”

Now, I’m going to take a wild guess and imagine that your answer to the last question, is yes.

The thing is, most of us are worriers. There is always the talk of money, when it comes to jobs, careers, giving it all up and finally doing what you love in life etc.

I mean after all, we all have bills to pay and families to keep.

Ask yourself, “what is it that I love doing?”, “if money, time, people, jobs, did not tie me down, what would I be doing right now?”

When you know the answer to this, ask yourself “how can I make money doing what I love?”

This could prove tricky for the imagination that has been cut off so many times, but the most amazing thing is, that it could be absolutely anything!

If you love to write, start a blog online and use affiliate marketing to bring in some cash.
If you love to exercise, offer your services as a trainer or set up weekly classes for everyone in the community, charging a small amount for each participant.
If you love to act, act out your scenes and put them on YouTube!
If you love to make yourself look gorgeous and pretty, do that, take pictures, offer yourself up to modelling agencies or vlog how you do it via YouTube.
If you love to garden, cook, walk dogs, sit at home all day and relax, whatever it is you love doing, you can make money from it!

So don’t worry about it, don’t have a baby!
It will all be okay.
You know why?
Because you’re doing what you love.
You’re ineffectually, living life the way you want to live it.
And because you love it so much, you give 110% to all of it.
Therefore, productivity is boosted.
Happiness is boosted.
Stress is sent away and people love that!
People love services and products created by happy productive people who love what they’re doing!

So if you’re worried about money, don’t worry, because chances are, if you enjoy life, money will follow you and magically end up in your pocket before you know it.

So go ahead, book that holiday to the Bahamas! Impregnate your wife! Buy a mansion! Buy a Lamborghini! Do whatever it is that you want to do.

Because you know, life is short.
At any moment, life could stop completely and forever.
And to regret life, is to have not lived at all.

Letter to myself.

This is a very special kind of blog post.

It is a letter to myself.

Just lately, It’s becoming of greater importance to everyone these days, to look after our minds, to cultivate them and to have healthy body images, to love ourselves before others and to take care of ourselves before others.

The letter composed below, is an example of what I would say to myself right now, in this period of my life.
It is what my inner soul is telling me but my physical person refuses to believe.

All too often, we listen to our brains instead of our hearts.
This is an example of me, listening to my heart and expressing what’s inside.

Ask yourself today, what is your soul trying to tell you?
What are you refusing to believe?

Hopefully this experiment will encourage not only myself but all of us to listen to ourselves more, empower us to live lives the way we want to live and enable us all to be better happier persons.

And from thence, we start.

Dear Beth,

I wish you could see how happy you could be right now and for the rest of your life.
If only you could turn that switch off in your head and focus on what’s good in life.
Money is of no question. It doesn’t matter.
Stop worrying about how you’re going to pay bills and start living!
Their is a whole world of amazing experiences to be had, if you would just have them.

Stop being scared. Because fear is holding you back from doing what you really want to do.
Start loving more because people around you want your love and you not showing it as much as you can, allows them to think that you don’t love them at all.

Stop complaining and moaning all the time. You’re becoming a drip.

And also, start accepting, that this is you!
Yes, you are tough headed like your mum and yes, you are affectionate and physically resemble your dad.
Just because they made terrible mistakes in the past does not mean that you are destined to do the same.
You have the power to change your life and to make everything greater than they ever did.

When someone hurts you, you don’t have to give up on them and cut them off.
Dad did a lot of mean stuff but cutting him off has left him destitute and in a bad way and you still care about him! Don’t deny it!
You still care about your mother too and want to make things easy for her. You know it!
You want your little brother to grow up having opportunities you never did and financial freedom to live life to the fullest.
Start making those little changes. Start being the change they need.
Exude the care that is inside of you.

Beth, it’s important that you understand to just go with what’s going.
Just flow like yoga teaches you.
Just because you’re feeling this or doing that, does not mean that everything is a big disaster.
It’s just change and change is good.
Accept it. Love it. Live it.

Finally, like all great people have told you and taught you, love yourself above any other.
Take your time to do something you want to do. Treat yourself! Don’t deprive yourself! Don’t punish yourself! You don’t need to do that anymore.

Everything is going to be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.
Just chill.
Just be.
Just be you.
Be strong and independent.
Take control of yourself, your past, your present and your future.
You can do it.
I believe in you.
God bless.

If I could hug you, I would.
If I could step outside of you, I would tell you everything is going to be okay, wipe your tears when they fall, hold you tight when you’re scared and love you when it seems like no one else does.
I would do all of that and more for you.
Because you mean everything to me.
You are me.
And together, we have to look after each other.
No one else can do it.
And I wouldn’t want to be coupled with anyone else in order to conquer this world.
I love you.

Yours sincerely and whole heartedly,
