What is Living Full Out?
Living Full Out is a way of viewing your world – your circumstances, your goals, and your life story – as a springboard to success. When you live life full out, you take the bad with the good and see setbacks as a chance to grow. You never settle for stuck, never run from a challenge, and never rest on your laurels. You wake each day excited to greet what will happen next.
When you live full out, you feel free, strong, and capable. You are known as someone who is inclusive and supportive, who always looks for the best in any situation. Areas in your life where you feel limited suddenly become open and free, goals that were unattainable become easy to accomplish. Watch results roll in, new opportunities appear, and relationships grow.
Anything is possible with the right mindset – embrace it all and keep moving forward!
The Elements of Living Full Out
The Living Full Out mindset is based on five elements: Purpose, Tenacity, Versatility, Community, and Gratitude.
Purpose: Through connecting with what you are meant to bring to the world, you find never-ending fuel for determination, gratitude and joy.
Tenacity: Determination becomes less about a strident path toward a goal and more about giving yourself freedom to create, recreate, change and alter your path so you can keep moving forward.
Versatility: Be willing and able to alter what you consider success or frustration might hinder your ability to keep going. You created the game you are playing so keep recreating the game as you go along.
Community: When you live life full out, you not only rely on your community but you look for people to add to it – making your reach in the world grow.
Gratitude: The moment you create a reason to be grateful and express that gratitude, your mood shifts. You feel connected to others, at peace with how things are right now, and ready to face your life with all its ups and downs.
Letting Life Layer:
If we try to stop things from happening, then we can never learn. Allowing life lessons to “layer” on top of each other gives us the ability to better understand others and ourselves.
You must embrace what is happening in the present to know what the right next steps are, how to help, and how to be a better person. You can’t live full out in the past or future. Everything that is happening and everyone in your life exists right now – enjoy this moment!
Read the Road Signs:
Living Full Out means following the flow of life as opposed to trying to move against it, even when life is giving you bad news. Rather than resist, accept what circumstances you have with the fearlessness and confidence that you can handle anything life doles out. In addition, you will be more courageous than ever.
Learn to Leverage:
The truth is, you can’t accomplish your goals with your old habits – you need to learn how to leverage both time and people to your advantage. As others come to your aid and as you design each day to your needs, you’ll find new time opening up and relationships blossoming.
Forgive Yourself and Others:
When you go big, big things happen – both good and bad. In the tough times, forgiveness is key to move through it all with grace and serenity. Don’t forget to forgive yourself! If you are goal oriented then you are probably your worst critic and that critic likes to stop you short of success. Don’t let it!
Make A Difference:
Living Full Out isn’t just about reaching goals; it is about being a great person, and that is only found in helping others. When you create opportunities to help others, experiencing success feels more worthwhile.
Blow Away Limits:
You CAN reach any goal you set your mind to, as long as you believe you can. By blowing away your personal limits and the limits others try to impose on you, life becomes exciting and adventurous. How far can you go? You can go as far as your belief in yourself allows you to!
Living Full Out means experiencing all life has to offer and finding the joy in whatever you are given. Bring a childlike sense of wonder to situations and watch new ideas flow. Find the humor no matter what you are working on. Revel in all victories big and small. It’s your life – celebrate it.
