How to Create A Personal Philosophy so you can Love Your Business and Your Life!
In a previous post I shared the difference between BEing more and DOing more.
When you are BEING more, you naturally ATTRACT more opportunity for growth and expansion in both your business and in your life.
Having a personal philosophy simply reminds you how you want to BE in any situation.
Bruce Lee discovered a simple guiding philosophy for living in the statement, “Be like water.” And from that one statement he created a 7 part CREED, or personal philosophy that helped guide him towards the success and growth he desired most and to remind him to “BE like water.”
Imagine having a phrase, an idea, a GUIDING Philosophy that helps guide the energy behind every move you make in business and in life.
If you’d like to create your own Personal Philosophy statement, simply make a list of 3-7 points that help you align with your GUIDING Philosophy.
For Example, my guiding philosophy for living is “EXPERIENCE GRACE” and if you have watched any one of my previous episodes, you have heard my 4 point personal philosophy to help me align with my guiding philosophy, if not, I’ll share it here.
First: BE Grateful.
When I want to experience Grace in any area of life, I spend time being Grateful for all I currently have. Gratitude multiplies the abundance that you already possess. And for me personally gratitude moves me quickly into the state of experiencing grace.
Second: Think BIG.
In this step, I align with GRACE and contemplate the idea that there is something even BIGGER and more expansive waiting for me beyond the limits of my current vision for growth.
Third: Take Inspired Action
This piece of my personal philosophy reminds me to receive the grace I want to experience by stepping out in faith. I constantly remind myself to take the inspired action and be willing to do the things that I’m inspired to do, knowing that Grace is with me every step of the way.
Forth: ENJOY the Journey
For me enjoying the journey is about making sure the details are managed (by me or someone else) so I have time to enjoy the overflow of abundance and grace that life brings me.
Put it all together and my personal philosophy is:
“BE Grateful, Think BIG, Take INSPIRED Action, and ENJOY the Journey!”
As an Empire Builder and someone who is committed to not just doing more but being more, you are going to want to create your own personal philosophy for living that will guide you in business and in life.
To help you get started, I’ve created a guide for you with Bruce Lee’s very own 7 part personal philosophy. You can find it here.
