5 Steps To Grow The Life You Desire

failure persistence Jun 30, 2021

This past month I had the opportunity to attend a conference.  It was a conference being hosted by my coaching program Ascend.  I was surprised at what I learned and how much I enjoyed my time in Utah.  The conference was mainly about developing yourself to the fullest potential.  There were several things I learned about myself during my time spent with my group and I believe the topics are worth discussing.

As I started my trip I started to think when was the last time I have been anywhere by myself?  Well, if you know anything about me you will know I am a family person and always have them near so I have not been anywhere in the last 15 years by myself.  So as I went to learn about how can I develop personally there were 5 key takeaways.

  1. Live Life to the fullest:

Take more risks is one way I will start to live my life unapologetically!  If you do not start to take more risk you will become discontent.  Staying in your comfort zone will not allow you to learn and you will become stagnate in both your personal and professional life.  I have always been the type of person to take risks.  Even going to this conference in a different city and with a community that I would be meeting in person for the first time was a huge step for me but paid off greatly.  You don’t want to look back on your life and regret the chances you did not take.


  1. Trust Yourself:

I know that trusting myself will allow me to become happier and accept those around me.  I learned that as I trust myself I will trust others as well which leads to better relationships.  This is an important characteristic I want to develop further.  In addition, as you trust yourself you will become more self-aware, confident in the decision you make, and will not be bothered by negative comments, and become more action-oriented.  Make the decision that you will be up the trust in yourselves as I did.

  1. Failure is Part of the Success:

Now, this was not new to me but I gained a deeper understanding.  I learned that my past mistakes and failures do not define me as a person who is not worthy.  I can take those same failures and use them as a foundation for building my family, business, and career.  One of the main reasons you view failure as negative is because it’s painful.  Launching a new product that is not successful is painful.  One thing to remember is now you have a foundation you can build on.  You have to begin to change your mindset towards failure and begin to embrace your failure knowing they will lead to your success.

       4.  Persistence is Key:   

Persistence is a characteristic that must be developed in order to obtain your life goals.  What does it mean anyway to be persistent simply put it means you do not give up until you obtain the goal.  What it does not mean is it will be easy or there will be no challenges.  You will continue through it all until you have the life you desire.  I can attribute this one characteristic to my current level of success once I set the goal I do not give in or give up until it's completed!

        5.  Certainty

How do you live in certainty?  Well, you start by believing less in your doubt.  Doubt is something that we all have to learn to live with but it does not have to be your prominent thought.  Once you make the decision it is a must you stick by that decision.  You cannot live in the limiting beliefs that you created a long time ago.  It's time to stop settling for less and start living in the progression of a great fulfilled life.

I hope that the less I have learned this past week will give you the courage to try again and begin to live your best life.  Creating the life you want is not an easy accomplishment but it is well worth it in the end.  You do not want to think I wish I had done this or travel there.  Create the vision and make it compelling and go after your dreams.

Reclaim your confidence.
