Discovering Intentional Living: The Power of Clarity

Hey Dealmakers! Welcome to our blog, where we focus on achieving financial freedom through real estate. If you're feeling stuck, like you're drifting through life without making progress, this post is for you. Living an intentional life, one that's full of purpose and fulfillment, begins with clarity.

I used to feel stuck, drifting through life, until my early 30s. Since then, I've been working on living more intentionally. In this post, I'm going to share with you my 5 clarity practices that I've developed over the years, which have made a huge difference in how I design my life.

Napoleon Hill, best known for “Think and Grow Rich,” wrote another book called “Outwitting the Devil,” where he discusses how the devil keeps us from achieving our best selves by causing us to drift through life. This was me until my early 30s. I followed the path laid out by others until I became an entrepreneur in 2005. Everything changed, and I began to live more intentionally.

My journey toward intentional living inspired my first book, “Intentional Living,” published in 2013. This book is about making mindful choices aligned with personal values and goals to live a more fulfilled and purposeful life. Let's break this down and see how clarity plays a crucial role in living intentionally.

Fulfillment and Purpose through Mindful Choices

Living intentionally involves making mindful choices that align with your values and goals. By doing so, you're more likely to experience a sense of fulfillment and satisfaction. Purpose comes from identifying and pursuing what truly matters to you. This alignment gives your life direction and meaning.

The Importance of Clarity

To make mindful choices, you need clarity about your values and goals. If you're clear about what you want and don't want in life, you can make informed decisions. Clarity is at the heart of making mindful choices and intentional living.

Over the years, I've implemented five clarity practices to help create the clarity needed for mindful choices. Here they are:

  1. Crafting Your Perfect Day
    • Imagine your perfect day and write it down. This exercise helps you visualize what you're working towards and inspires you to create a life that includes as many of those perfect days as possible.
  2. Goal Setting
    • Set goals for various areas of your life in three time frames: five years, one year, and quarterly. This process gives clarity to every aspect of your life, from health and relationships to work and spirituality.
  3. Monthly Clarity Days
    • Dedicate one day each month to think deeply about your personal and professional life. Use this time to review your progress, reflect on your goals, and make necessary adjustments.
  4. Weekly Strategic Time
    • Schedule strategic time twice a week for deep, uninterrupted work on your most important goals. This focused time helps you move forward in meaningful ways.
  5. Daily Morning Routine
    • Develop a morning routine that centers you and sets the tone for your day. The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod offers a great framework with practices like silence, affirmations, visualization, exercise, reading, and journaling.

By following these practices, you create clarity in your life, which leads to better, more mindful choices. These choices, aligned with your values and goals, will help you live a more fulfilled and purposeful life.

Start by crafting your perfect day and scheduling your first Clarity Day. Reflect on the importance of financial freedom in your life and how you can make progress towards it. Remember, clarity creates better choices, and better choices lead to a more intentional life.
