About the “Unwrapped”-Series”
This article is the first in a series of upcoming articles called “Unwrapped”. These will focus much more on you doing things or following exercises. Because doing something makes the experience 10,000% more intense than just reading about it.
I really want you to do these things to get the full benefit from it. Take the time or schedule when to do it.
The format of these articles would be pretty easy and readable for you, consisting of 3 parts:
- What you will get out of it (if you participate)?
- Further Information
- Action Steps: Now it is time to stop reading and start doing
What you will get out of it (if you participate)?
Doing this exercise will enable you to:
- get your life in order
- find out what to focus on in life
- find out what you would really like to do in life
- find out how to become the vision after you get it
- know exactly where you are wasting your time
- would like to know what your life should be about
This exercise is one of the most potent ones you can do for yourself.
Background Info: Leaving a Legacy and Why Death Is the Greatest Catalyst for Life
This might not be an easy read for you. Since most of our time, we are running around from one of the most important moments in our life – our death. We are afraid of death. But we shouldn’t be. We are going to die. It is inevitable. So there is no sense in being afraid. Once you really know, what is going to happen, all your worries will be gone.
Instead focus on death, as a catalyst, indeed the biggest catalyst life has to offer. It forces you, to focus your attention and choose wisely, what you would like to experience in this life.
As long as we neglect it, we cannot come to a clear vision, because we are running around, afraid to accept that our life is limited, and we need to decide what to do with a resource that is getting shorter every day for us – time.
So use the catalyst power of the certainty of death, to increase your focus and to bring your quality of life to a level you haven’t thought possible before.
For this life is not about being afraid of death (and neither is it wanting to die premature) – instead it is about living a fulfilled life, that will come to fruition and will allow us to leave this earth with a feeling of “I’ve had a happy life”.
But since we don’t know, when we will die, we shouldn’t place our hope on someday, someday all will be better. Maybe your someday will never come. Instead decide to focus on increasing the quality of your life in the here and now and let the certainty of death guide you to make the best decisions possible.
By doing this exercise, you create a vision for yourself that you can then go on to become. First get a vision and then become that vision.
Although this might seem strange at first, trust in your own soul. Your soul has already the wisdom to generate a fulfilled life. Tap into this wisdom with the following exercise. Then act on it for at least 30 days and you will see, that your perspective on life as well as your actual circumstances will change into just the direction you described in this legacy.
And don’t let your age fool you. No matter how young or old you are – now is the only time to start this journey and don’t worry how much time you wasted until now. Just begin – now – there is nothing more and nothing else you can do.
