What Does it Mean to Live Your Best Life?

by | Aug 24, 2022 | Growth

to live your best life means to be true to yourself

To aspire to live your best life, you don’t need anything, but an idea, that there could be more to life than what you experience now.

To live your best life, requires only the openness to be completely honest with yourself (and me, if we work together) and to try new ways of thinking and living.

Some of the most inspiring people came from the most devastating places and had to make it through childhood trauma, without any resources or securities whatsoever.

They simply set their mind to changing things for the better for themselves.

That mindset and the strength and trust they had it is admirable, and got them to achieve incredible results that enabled them to turn their lives around.

Not everybody is born with a mindset like that, but anyone can learn to develop one.

If you want to start living your best life, that means you need to start learning how to change your mind to believe that you, too, can achieve anything, and then start doing it.

This is my work. I help people like you to build the mindset to achieve anything they wish.

I became a self-actualization coach to help you to start living your best life.

To change your mind to success, to overcome struggles and blockages and to find out how to live a happy and fulfilled life in which you feel truly loved and free to be yourself is possible for anyone.

And investing in yourself is the opposite of being selfish.

Your experience on this earth is unique, and so is your role and your calling. If you live up to your full potential, everyone will benefit.

If you start living in your strength, with authenticity, and to share your love and uniqueness with the world – you will inspire others. You are a gift.

It’s time to let your true self shine bright.

everything is connected

How we think and feel, if we are pessimistic and sad, if we don’t have the energy to work on ourselves and to change things for the better, then that is usually due to our lifestyle.

More often than not, we don’t feel empowered because we don’t get enough sleep, we don’t eat well, and we don’t move enough.

(Did you know that each of us should walk a minimum of 6000 steps a day to maintain a healthy state of mind? To walk less has been proven to be a main factor for depression.)

This is why I use a holistic approach.

The three Elements of well-being

Abraham H. Maslow, the founder of Self-Actualization Coaching, developed a hierarchy of needs, which is often presented as a pyramid, though he never used the pyramid himself.

He pointed out several elemental needs that every human being wants to meet, such as financial security, physical safety, shelter, food, water, hygiene or social interaction.

Once these are met, we are really free to grow and expand ourselves.

I, and some others, believe that there’s no clear hierarchy, but that nonetheless all the aspects he identified play a critical role and each aspect proves to be an element of our lives, that needs looking at, if we want to live our best lives.

These three elements of well-being all interact with each other:

Physical Well-being // Body

To fulfil our physiological needs, we need enough sleep, good food and enough exercise.

We also need a safe place to live and be.

I always think of Virginia Woolf’s quote: “A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction.”

We need to be able to meet our physical needs, and have some quiet to meet ourselves to live a life that is true to ourselves.

This can be created under any and out of any circumstances, but it is essential to work towards creating this space, to live our best lives.

Mental Well-being // Mind

Our mental well-being is usually linked to our physical well-being and vice versa.

Once we know how to take care of ourselves in terms of food, sleep and exercise, we can learn to develop a strong and positive relationship with ourselves mentally as well.

We can start to change and train the way we think of ourselves, our abilities and options, the world around us and other people.

This touches on finding ways to practice self-love and to be kind to ourselves, while taking 100% responsibility for our lives.

This is how we can truly come to meet and recognize our needs, and to strengthen our sense of purpose and belonging.

Relational Well-being // Soul

The work always starts with ourselves, but ends with being able to be fully present in community.

If we are unable to stand strong on our own two feet, it’s hard to reach out a hand to someone else who needs us.

If we don’t know about our own needs and boundaries and how to lovingly assert them, both parties might end up tumbling down together.

But once our inner work is (mostly) done, we can safely, lovingly and joyfully be with others and inspire and uplift.

We can learn to live in the freedom of knowing that we cannot change other people or our circumstances, but we can change ourselves so that our circumstances and other people may change as well.

This way, we can give to and be there for those we love, are open to receive in return and be with other people without causing harm or sacrificing ourselves.

your best life – your unique life

I believe that these three elements of well-being are necessary to live a fulfilled and happy life.

However, what a fulfilled and happy life – your personal best life – looks like and the areas that need the most work are different for everyone.

You will have different needs or places that you would like to start working on than your best friend, a family member or any other person.

We are all different, and that is our superpower.

We all share these basic needs for safety and to develop freely, but beyond that, we each have our individual place, role, strengths and joys.

Which is why there is no need to fear that somebody else could take something away from us.

We can all have and live what belongs and is true to us.

Your job is to figure out what that means for you and how to live it.

If you wish, I can support you with proven tools, shortcuts, effective methods and most of all my own experience and that of others, so that you don’t have to figure it all out by yourself.

I’ve had my teachers who helped me get here, and now I’m happy to share my wisdom and what I’ve learned with you so that soon, you too may inspire others, and so we can all live happier, freer and more loving lives together.

To live your best life is quite possible, I’d be delighted to teach you how.

If you are looking to create lasting change in your life, and the fact that you are on this website points in that direction, then I have a really simple trick for you to make the changes you desire stick.

„Knowledge that is not in the bones is just a rumour.“

This quote is attributed to the Asaro People from Papua New Guinea.

When I first heard the quote from Richard Strozzi-Heckler as part of a course I took on embodiment and purpose, it brought a great bit of clarity into my life, and I hope it will do the same for you.

OUR WORLD NEEDS CHANGE.
Our world needs you.
In your full power.

Start exploring new ways to be in this world.

How can I benefit from coaching? Life is precious, and it's a limited period of time we have on this earth, in this form. We can use this time to grow, experience, love, serve and learn.

Each of us gets to choose in every moment how their life is going to continue, but often we don't make the choices we want, but the ones we think are expected from us. And that leads to chaos, unhappiness and confusion because we're not aligned with our inner knowing.

Once we realize that we have the power to choose and change our circumstances, life enters into a more natural flow.

But to get there, we have some unlearning to do. We need to uncover the subconscious believes that keep us stuck, we need to leave our comfort zones and stretch ourselves, and we have to form new habits that serve us better. And that's what I'm here for, I will help you to become fiercely interdependent.

If you would like to work with me as a coach, I can guide you to find new options that are more aligned with your inner knowing, and to learn to trust your inner voice, to clear blockages that have been holding you back and to open up space for what really matters in your life.

On this journey you can find clarity, confidence, love, freedom, connection and so much more.
