Life As you want it

You have to dream before your dreams can come true.

Understand: Establish Direction

Professional Choices

If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favorable.
You don't want to drift from one choice to another!

You do not want circumstances to decide for you!

Make a conscious choice.

Devote time to it and not jump to conclusion. You just have one life and one of you.

Look in past, present and imagine the future.

Question what makes you happy and excited?

Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction.


Clarify with yourself your choices to make sure that they are not just vogue or influence! Challenge any doubts you have in mind and have 100% buy-in from yourself.

Dont force but engage and involve yourself.

Once you have clarified, you would see surge in commitment and dedication.
You may want to call it your VISION!.


Where do you see yourself in 10 to 15 years time?

What would you be doing then professionally?

How would your family life look?

How would your social life look?

Science behind
The two brain theory: Frontal lobe and limbic

The frontal lobe, involved in conscious thought and higher mental functions such as decision-making, plays an important part in processing short-term memories and retaining longer term memories which are not task-based.

Mind has a mind of its OWN.

The limbic system supports a variety of functions, including emotion, behaviour, motivation, long-term memory, and olfaction. It appears to be primarily responsible for emotional life, and it has a great deal to do with the formation of memories.

Affirm: Evaluate Yourself

He not busy being born is busy dying!

Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is Enlightenment.

EVALUATE: Yourself, what's important to you, What you do!

Knowing: what you have in your life, what adds value and what sucks life out is start of it. Define all important areas Define what makes them up Write down the parameter which would make the situation ideal for each of important areas. Evaluate your current standing against ideal standings.
Make a conscious choice what you want to improve and what you want to shun!

Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you.

PRIORITISE: What needs attention and whats needs rejection!

Prioritise what matter and adds value!

See the GAP clearly where you stand today and what is your ideal standing.
The most important thing in life is knowing the most important things in life. Breakdown into small steps and focus!
Most of us spend too much time on what is urgent and not enough time on what is important!


What are the most important areas in your life?

What makes up each of the areas your list above?

How would you evaluate each?

How would you strike a balance in all important areas of life?

STEP 1: Go to Define Me and define what makes them up.


STEP 2: Go to Refine Me and evaluate defined areas.

Define yourself to arrive at current standing in each of the important area of your life, giving you mirrored view of your life so you can start on journey of changing what needs to be changed and enjoy what is already ideal.

Science behind
Humans are more than just consciousthey are also self-aware. Difference: Consciousness is awareness of ones body and ones environment; Self-awareness is recognition of that consciousnessnot only understanding that one exists, but further understanding that one is aware of ones existence. Another way of thinking about it: To be conscious is to think; to be self-aware is to realize that you are a thinking being and to think about your thoughts.

Mind has a mind of its OWN.

PLAN: Identify The Path, Simulate The Execution

Unless commitment is made, there are only promises and hopes; but no plans.

Accept what is, let go of what was, and have faith in what will be.

The GAP between where you are today and where you want to be!


Mind the GAP You know what you want in life (Establish Direction) You know who you are, what are your strengths, weaknesses and whats missing!(Evaluate Yourself) Visualize the GAP, Analyze the GAP, Summarize the GAP! Break the needs into long term, mid term and immediate!

A Journey of a thousand miles, Begins with a single step!


MAKE a plan. Stick to purpose and not plan. Plan invariably change with setbacks. Simulate the journey. Often! Habitual-lize. List the resources you would require. Find the building blocks, the stepping stones! Decide the Price you are willing to Pay!
Make a conscious choice Go for it knowingly.

Science behind
The subconscious mind
Your subconscious mind is like a huge memory bank. Its capacity is virtually unlimited. It permanently stores everything that ever happens to you. Your subconscious mind is an unquestioning servant that works day and night to make your behaviour fits a pattern consistent with your emotionalized thoughts, hopes, and desires. All your habits of thinking and acting are stored in your subconscious mind.

Mind has a mind of its OWN.

ENERGISE: Build your character Complete the Story

It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world and moral courage so rare.

We become what we repeatedly do.


Combination of Our Habits = Our Character. *VALUE SYSTEM!

Work on LIFE Step 1: Guiding Principles Thoughts Step 2: Approach to Life Actions Step 3: Execution Habit
Your actions become your habits, Your habits become your values, Your values become your destiny.

* Set of morals, ethics, standards, preferences, belief systems and world views that come together through self-organizing principles to define an individual, a group or a culture.

Here is the test to find whether your mission on Earth is finished: if you're alive, it isn't.


Its all about :


Make a habit out of turning dreams into reality. But Define the GAP between reality now and Dream! Understand the yourself, your environment and your dreams (goals)! AND THE COST of journey!

Complete your story Visually and Factually and Earnestly. Then live the Story!


What are your habits in each important areas?

Go for top 3 in each.

What links you and your Dream together?

Have a story, Complete.

When going gets tough, tough get going! Whats your value system?

What's the action plan?

STEP 1: Go to Refine Me and on to Value System.



Go to Align & Achieve and Create your Stories as Project.

Nothing plays more important part in your life then your character which in turn depends on hardcore beliefs and habits which a human can cultivate. And your character is resultant of your Value System. So build our value system consciously.

Everyone tries to define this thing called Character. It's not hard. Character is doing what's right when nobody's looking.

Science behind
Mind remembers stories (not bullet points) and associate them with things and happening around us.

Mind has a mind of its OWN.

ACT: Align & Achieve

The best way to predict your future is to create it

I never worry about action, but only inaction.


ACT ACT ACT Have a plan & Act Act as per plan! Align the plan and Act Plans = good intentions; ACTION = hard work. Celebrate the success and Act! Action is the real measure of intelligence. Action and Motion are different things! Develop a sense of urgency. Remember: Every ACTION has equal and opposite REACTION; Be prepared for it.

Even if youre on the right track, youll get run over if you just sit there.

Mind the change; Measure the change!


Measure See the change; To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often. Positive or Negative? If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading. Monitor Yourself; Your Action; Your Results.


What are your top project in next 6 months, 1 Year?

Go for 1 in each important areas at least.

Are they reflection of your Vision, Needs & Wants?

Have a story, Complete.

What are the challenges in achieving them?

What are resources I need? They aligned?

STEP 1: Go to Align & Achieve, Project Define you Measure .



Go to Tools and Dashboard Monitor.

When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and your discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.
