~ Live your life by design ~
It’s fitting that while I wrote this I was in Disney World staying at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort. The first time I visited Disney World after the Grand Floridian was built I remember thinking to myself that I was going to stay there someday. When I first started teaching Martial Arts professionally I would tell my master instructor that I was going to open my own school someday, 9 years before it happened. Whenever my mother would ask me what I wanted for my birthday or Christmas I would tell her a BMW. I had my first one in 2005. With the opening of the new dojo I have seen yet another HUGE goal accomplished.
In the 1993 I started working for the person that would serve as my mentor for nearly 20 years. Personal self development and developing a plan to live my life by, personally and professionally, was one of the most important things I learned from that relationship. I have seen for the past 23 years, it is totally possible to live your life by design.
Over the next several weeks I will be writing about the systems that I use to continue to live my life by design. One of the most important tools for this is belief. What we focus on most becomes our reality. Focus on what you don’t want and it will happen. Focus on what you do want, and that will happen too.
