Top 5 ways to live an intentional life

and How to make a difference.

“It doesn’t matter how long you live but how well you do it.”

Don’t let other people or the mass media decide what kind of life you have = take back control. There will be outside forces trying to shape, mould and conform you. This is not done on purpose rather these people may be trying to “help” you. They may not want you to get hurt. Their limitations could be transferred on to you and then limit you thus…

Don’t let other people’s limitations limit you!


  • ·      Your life has purpose
  • ·      Your story is important
  • ·      Your voice matters
  • ·      Your dreams count
  • ·      You were born to make an impact


5 key strategies to live an intentional life:

  • ·      Focus on developing and living by your core values
  • ·      Develop a clear vision of your future = mission & purpose
  • ·      Build a map =Plan out your direction and purpose
  • ·      Work towards things that are bigger than you. Focus on serving others = build social network = what can you get to… what can you give
  • ·      Love more. Give to get. No strings attached


Focus on developing and living by your core values.
This allows you to be more authentic and real, true to thyself, with peace of mind and inner calm. Living by your core values acts as an internal compass as your trael down the river of life. They act as a solid foundation you can rely and count on when you get lost and lose direction. And, this will greatly reduce your stress!

Develop a clear vision of your future
will greatly boost your internal motivation and energy, and allows you to spend your time wisely and not waste so much of it. Planning and having strategic goals will allow you to have mission, direction and purpose to your life.

Plan out your life direction and purpose
in the many different areas of your life. Take back control and shape, plan, and direct your life. Remember, the compass is more important that the clock or how fast you are going. This will help reduce overwhelm and confusion, leading to peace of mind as you will know that your are not wasting time. This will get you lite up and highly internally motivated to take on the world and make your dreams come alive.

Work towards things that are bigger than you!
Adopt the mindset of what can you get… to… what can you give, and contribute. Focus on serving others and build your social network, Help others, share your insights and knowledge. This will lead to fulfillment and satisfaction. Sharing of your wisdom can make one feel very significant and it truly makes a difference! You will matter.

Love more.
Give to get. No strings attached. Break down the wall that keeps the hurt out as it also keeps the love out and prevents your love from impacting others. Now is the time to break down the wall and open your heart to the world.

To feel like you are making a difference

you need to live a life that matters,

a life of significance equals happiness.


You don’t have to be the leader
of a country, or an organization or someone with a great title to matter and make a difference; you can matter and have greater significance in your own family, social network and you can start today!

What is key to watch out for
and a common mistake many make is the idea that we should chase happiness.  Chasing happiness doesn’t make you happy, this is misleading! This is how many others mislead you by by telling you to chase happiness. Chasing happiness doesn’t make you happy long term. It’s only short-term gratification! If you want deep internal happiness work on becoming more significant and making a bigger difference.

Living a life that Matters equals happiness. Contribution, sharing wisdom, helping others is what builds significance and builds deep internal happiness.

A better, more empowering question
you should be asking is… How can I make a bigger contribution and impact more people at a deeper level to have greater significance?

Think about how you can start today, say with your family, friends, work colleagues etc. You can explore more on the life enhancing training program called Live* Love* Matter* at

How To Reduce time pressure- Get More done!

Looking at key ways to reduce time pressure can be useful in helping remove one of the stressors in your life. We all feel the time crunch with too much to do in to little time. I sometimes think, I will only start something if I have a big chunk of time. And, because that big chunk of time never happens I don’t start at all. Nothing gets done! Have you experienced this?

This short and helpful article by Sue Brenner may help you break this mind set and actually get more done within the small 15 minute time chunks we all get every day.
