Creating an extraordinary life is everyone’s right, but it’s not always easy when the day-today boring stuff keeps pulling you in the opposite direction.
You don’t want to settle for the mediocre. You want to create a life that you live to the fullest and makes you say “Hell Yeah” I did live on my terms.
Now we all want different things in our life, have different needs, and different goals. That’s what makes the world a beautiful place, it’s our uniqueness.
However to get that extraordinary life, the life you want (no matter what it is) there are habits you can include in your daily routine that will help you get the life you want, whatever it may be quickly.
These life hacks help you to step up, take charge and build the life you want step by step.
The 10 Hacks to Getting the Life You Want
1. Take Personal Responsibility For Your Life
We are all 100% Responsible for our lives. The Good, the bad and the ugly. Every decision we make is on us.
This is a hard reality to face, but once you do, you realize that you have the power to do whatever you want with your life and in the world.
I mean it’s so easy to seat in your day jobs and complain, it’s a lot easier for you to blame someone else for things that go wrong in your life.
But when you own your shit, life starts to look a lot different.
This means whatever your life looks like right now, you have to accept that you created it. Not your boss, your husband, boyfriend, or Parents. You have the life you have because of the choices you made or didn’t make.
So take this one seriously and look yourself in the mirror and accept responsibility for every area of your life, cause it’s yours, you own it. So own it!
2. Know What You Want And Why You Want It
If you don’t know what you want, how can you know when you get it or how to even get it.
When you are clear on what you want, life becomes so much easier.
Saying yes and no becomes a breeze because if it doesn’t align with what you want in your life you simply say no.
If you’re a people pleaser, then you really need to figure out what you want, and make decisions based on your needs and want and not just giving other people what they want.
3. Build a Vision For Your Life
Vision is everything.
Leaders without vision are just managers. Managing someone else’s vision.
If you have no vision for your life then you are living someone else’s vision. Living someone else’s life.
How do you create a compelling vision for your life?
First, know what you want, then write out what a perfect workday would look and feel like for you. Then think about what a perfect day off would look like for you.
Start there. Once you have created this vision, write a vision statement, then meditate on it every day.
The vision will become more real and more in-depth the more you meditate on it.
Then the most important step of your vision is to take action on it. What is the first thing you can do that will get you one step closer to your vision?
Set goals that help you to create your vision.
4. Appreciate What You Have Now
You have to live in the present and appreciate what you have today, in the now. Show gratitude for what you have, who you have in your life.
It’s proven that people who show gratitude are more successful. When you live in the present you are happier and less fearful.
I have a saying that I have up on my wall it says:
“The more you take care of today, the less you have to worry about tomorrow.”
If you take care of your body today, the less you have to worry about any disease in the future. Got it, Live in the Now!
5. Believe in Yourself & Self Validate
Confidence will get you to place even if you don’t have the skills and knowledge to be there.
If you have confidence in what you can do to help people and you go out there and just start doing it, even if you are not an expert in that area.
Guess what you will be a step ahead of someone with all the skills and knowledge but zero confidence in their ability so they never take action.
Confidence = Self-belief+ Self-Validation
Self Belief and self-validation are important to your happiness and success. They go hand in hand with one another. If you don’t believe in yourself who else will. How will you achieve your goals and dreams if you don’t believe in you?
6. Take Action Daily
If you don’t take action on your vision and the plans you make you will achieve nothing.
So you need to take action every day. Take small steps towards your goals and move forward no matter what.
Whether what you do succeeds or fails you will be ahead of the game.
If you don’t take action you will never know where you could have gone and done. You would have failed before you even try.
“Don’t die with your potential still locked up inside you”
7. Master Your Mindset
Every successful person on this planet knows that to achieve greatness you have to master your mind.
Most of us fail at our goals in our mind before we even take the first step. Why because we are constantly battling our own minds.
Master your mind, and you will win the war, not just the battle.
8. Trust Your Intuition
Your intuition is your guide from the universe. It’s on your side, the more you trust it the more you will learn about yourself and what you are capable of.
If right now you are in pain and feel like you are off-course it’s because somewhere along the way you failed to trust your intuition and went off course.
Trust me I know, I’ve been there.
The best way to reconnect with your intuition is to start meditating.
9. Eliminate Complaining, Excuses & Resistance
These may seem like three very different things, but they all come from the same place. Resistance.
Anything you are complaining about you can change. I don’t deal with complaints, I do solutions.
When someone is complaining to me I simply ask them, “What’s your solution to the problem?”. If you don’t have a solution or are looking for a solution keep your complaints to yourself. Harsh but true.
The same goes for excuses. You can either do something or you don’t want to do something. If you don’t want to do something fine. Put your big girl heels on and just say I don’t want to do it cause I’m not feeling it.
No-fuss, no excuses.
If you feel you have to come up with an excuse, ask yourself why? Are you not doing something because of fear? If it’s fear, go do it.
“Fear is just a sign that you need to do something.”
This step ties into the very first hack in this list; “Taking personal responsibility”.
10. Be True to Yourself
This goes hand in hand with following your gut. This is so important especially as a woman in business.
It can be so easy to fall off track, to start following someone else’s path just cause it worked for them. But doing this will just make you feel stressed, lost and overwhelmed.
Be authentic to your truth. Never be afraid to speak your truth.
When you follow your truth you can’t go wrong.
The world may disagree, but if it’s your truth follow it.
The Life You Want, Is Yours

We may all have different visions for our lives and all want different things, but we can all follow these tips no matter where we want to go.
