Creating a great life
How to get the knowledge of creating the life you desire
by Lee Miller
Creating a great life
Each person who wants a good life is responsible for creating that good life. With the right tools of motivation and good information, including the knowledge of how to create a good life for ourselves a person can stop their drifting in life and use these tools to create the life that they want.
Become a seeker of knowledge
Where does a person get this knowledge is a question that may be asked by a seeker of knowledge. Throughout written history knowledge has been passed on to others through books. Before written history knowledge was passed on by story telling and from person to person. Now we have cd's, dvd's and movies to give us the tools we need in life. This is how life skills have been passed on for eon's and these methods have helped people learn by example instead of having to learn by trial and error. Trial and error is called the school of hard knocks.
Learning from others is so much easier and makes life more enjoyable.
Some people do not even learn by the school of hard knocks. This is when you see a person continue to do the same thing day after day and thinking that someday they will see different results from what they are doing.
To create change in your life you must change how you are living your life. This requires a change in your thinking. Change your thinking by creating a life plan for yourself. This can be done by reading, listening and finding mentors in life.
To those who want the knowledge the knowledge will appear
Some people do not have the benefit of learning how to get knowledge as a young person. This can be because of their environment or because those around them have not learned how to pass knowledge on to those in their lives.
My parents had certain knowledge about life and they did their best to pass this knowledge on to me. As a young man I was still at a loss as to how good relationships and a happy and prosperous life is created. This is because the people in my life had not learned these skills.
I had the good fortune to have a man I knew for only a short time tell me about certain books that were available. One of the first books that he told me about was The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale. This is what started me on a life long path of learning how to be happy in life.
Learn to use the knowledge given to us by other people. The knowledge may be passed on to us through mentoring, story telling or through books. Each will put us on our own self created life path.
Many years has passed since I read my first book on positive thinking and I still enjoy learning from these motivational books. Now I'm fortunate that we also have cd's and dvd's.
Putting knowledge to use
I have the belief that no matter how successful a person becomes they can still learn from others. The key to reading these books is not in the reading of the books, but by actually putting the information into use.
Knowledge is not powerful or useful unless the knowledge a person has is put to use.
In a bookstore or library these type of books would be found in a self help or personal development section.
We can also learn through a mentor or a series of mentors. People who we meet in life become our mentors by passing on life building skills to us by sharing their knowledge with us.
A thought to those who don't want to change
There is a problem with both of these methods of passing life skills on to other people. This problem is that there are many people who are not receptive to learning from others.
Perhaps you don't really want to change.
People not wanting to change or don't want to learn how to change
This can be because of many reasons some of which are:
- They think that they already know the best way to live their life.
- They don't think other people can know more about anything than they know. This type of person thinks that they are more superior in knowledge that anyone else.
- They don't want to think that the person sharing knowledge with them would know something that they don't know.
- Some people are self destructive and don't want knowledge about how to create a great life.
- Some don't want others telling them how to live. They want to be their own boss with no one bossing them around telling them what to do.
- Some are embarrassed to accept help. They are embarrassed to acknowledge that they don't know things about life.
- Some want to prove that their life is terrible and can't be changed. This is so they can continue to blame others for their awful life. The blame game
- I could use your help here - what are some of the other reasons that a person will not accept and put to use the knowledge of how to create a great life? What's your reason for not accepting knowledge from others?
Are you living a Successful Life
If your life is working better than the most successful person in life then you truly don't need any information from other people, you are the most brilliant person in life and you don't need any guidance. Congratulations on your having been given such a gift of success.
For the rest of us - there is a world of knowledge out there waiting for us to discover it and then put the knowledge of creating a great life to use.
Creating our personal road map to success
Creating the best life you can live will be achieved if you create a road map of life for yourself. This is done by knowing who and what you want to be. What type of personality do you want to create, what career do you want, what do you want in your mate? Start by asking these questions of yourself. Then gain the knowledge of how to create the life you desire by reading, finding a mentor and by putting the knowledge to use.
At this time let me suggest you start by reading the book - The Success Principles by Jack Canfield.
Books will go into far more detail on how to create the life you want to live than any one web site can.
I hope that each person who has read this article and the others that I have written will give themselves the project of creating for themselves the best life that they can.
Let me suggest another of my articles on this subject that will compliment the information you have gained here, it is -
I hope that you achieve creating the happiness, health and success that you desire. It's a completely different life when you consciously create your own life instead of just allowing life to happen to you.
There is great pleasure when you see the results in your creating your own good health and your own happiness. It's like when working on a project and there is a end result to be proud of and admire what has been created through your efforts. There is a pleasure in being able to say I like the person I have become, the person I have created.
Thank you for allowing me to share my thoughts on a life well lived with you.
Do what is best for you!
