7 Secrets to Living the Good Life

Know the 7 Secrets

Know the 7 Secrets

Dear Friend,

There really are 7 “Secrets” that you need to know and understand before you can successfully transform your life from where it is now to where it needs to be.

These 7 Secrets require that you change your long-held attitudes, your approach to living, and your priorities.  They also require you to discover a degree of emotional maturity within that few today know they can possess.

Comprehend and implement these 7 Secrets and you will dramatically transform the quality of your life.

The 7 Secrets to Living the Good Life are as follows:

  1. Know thyself – You must understand your unique needs before you do anything else.  This is the beginning of happiness;
  2. Develop a 21st Century Life Skillset – Be a skilled life “investor”- know the dangers, see the opportunities, invest in and build up skills, and diversify risks.  Learn to navigate today’s waves of change.  Think “worldly,” not provincially.  And protect and build “capital”.  These skills can be learned;
  3. Wealth – Build ATMs – Earn as you go, instead of all at once.  This is a new approach to “wealth” building.  Also, ensure that multiple streams of income are always available;
  4. Focus your everyday life around your loves, not around earning money.  Time is life – spend it wisely;
  5. Priorities – Be present with who and what you love – otherwise, what’s the point?;
  6. Follow your dreams – this requires courage, drive, and bold action; and
  7. Love thyself – you are beautiful just the way you are.  Learn to eject the judgments of the world and just be you.

Master these 7 Secrets and you will never want of anything again.

In my coming posts I will go into detail exploring each of these Secrets.  Once we are finished here you will be ready to embark on the life you never had.

I hope that you are as excited as I am!

All the best,

Hugh

    Thanks for sharing these! I would add that fostering an attitude of gratitude for “all that is” would be another secret to cultivate.

    Hey Hugh, these are some great points. I appreciate how points #4 and #5 put the emphasis on our loved ones. This is such a vital part of a meaningful life. When we keep all seven points in balance, they really do add up to living the good life.

    Catrien –
    Your work is beautiful! I love your post! And I agree wholeheartedly with your imagery of each of us as being a part of a great orchestra. Our sound may contribute to the beauty or to the sadness of life. Our mission, first and foremost, is to play that sound that is uniquely our own. No matter how beautiful the sound that another makes, we can make no sound more beautiful than that which we were created to make. Even if, alone, our sound may seem odd, once it is heard as a part of a great orchestra that is the Universe, our part in creating a greater beauty will make itself known.
    Thank you!

    Hi,

    I read your comment on Stephen Mill’s site (The rat race). When it comes to feelings or emotions towards another person I believe we repeatedly attempt to mould what we want or think we want at the time.All along going against what would be “intuitively right” for the situation.Get what I mean? Not all the time,but,not many people live life in the present moment much,so how can we talk real intuition? Especially in relationships,so many intangibles. We like to say intuitive feeling or believe that we feel it,but that’s usually just another way of moulding our life the way we see fit.

    Thanks so much for your thoughful comment, Derrick!
    Let me see if I get your point. You are saying that very few people are in a position to even be aware of truly intuitive thoughts because they are so lost in their efforts to micro-manage their own life? They therefore force their comprehension of what they experience into the pre-formed mold of their expectations? Thus, these folks limit what we think of as intuitive ideas into a small box of possibilities?
    Did I get your point? I’m slow today! 🙂
