Your Life Really CAN Be That Good!

Yes! You can live a fantastic life…for real! It doesn’t have to be a ‘pipe dream’ It can be real. Life simply does not have to stink.
I’ve been through some very hard years. I was out on my own at an early age. I know what it’s like to suffer.
But life doesn’t have to suck! It can be absolutely awesome; and not just a facade either; really, truly, authentically awesome.
Just because your life may stink right now, doesn’t mean it has to stay that way, or that everyone else’s life stinks too.
I love my life! It is genuinely amazing! 

Life Can Be Awesome! I Hope You Believe That.

Somebody posted on Facebook that he hates Facebook because nobody is being authentic, he was confessing how terrible his life is and said “nobody’s life can be that peachy”

But I want to say that life can be awesome! And having come from a life that was really hard, I know what it’s like to have a life that stinks. I personally had some serious struggles and challenges but I have intentionally created an awesome life! I was intentional about it, I was deliberate about it and my wife and I have created an incredible life together.

Step by step, we have created the life we want. There’s nothing we have to hide, we are the same in and out and we are trying to be authentic in that and life is awesome.

You Can Create a Fantastic Life

My message for you is to create a life you love so you don’t have to live some kind of a fake life. Be your very best self and work harder on yourself than you do on anything else.

My life is that peachy! Seriously! It is awesome. And when challenges, difficulties or obstacles come along, then great! Because I have trained myself  to see obstacles as opportunities and to outgrow them and not let them cripple me.

Are You Living Unconsciously? Find Out How to Live Deliberately

Are you living unconsciously, and you don’t even know it? Many of us don’t even know that we don’t know.
The best thing you can do with your life is to clearly decide who you want to become and how you want to live.
Once you know that, then you can ‘wake up’ for the hypnosis caused by social conditioning and start living life on your terms.
Life is what you make of it; but you have to do it consciously and intentionally. You and I have to find out what we don’t know and learn to live on a higher plane.

You Have to Know What You Don’t Know

Sometimes, we just grow up in our world and that’s all what we know. And we don’t know what we don’t know. In other words, outside of our reality and outside of what we are currently aware of, we don’t know what’s going on out there. I remember when this idea was presented to me that ‘you can live differently’ and that you don’t have to follow social conditioning or the patterns that society gives to you. And I remember thinking like –Oh! Come on really!?– but then the idea started growing in my mind little by little and I admitted that this may be a possibility though.

I often meet or observe people who are just existing and living unconsciously. They are kind of sleepwalking in a lot of ways. They go through their routines and they do the things they do and don’t even know why. Are you one of them?

I want to challenge you today to try to find out what you don’t know! And to try to expand your reality. And I think you can do that almost every day. Meaning, you can expose yourself to some kind of education and some kind of situation outside what are comfortable with and what surrounds you.

Wake Up to What You Don’t Know!

  • Why are you eating the way you eat? Have you really educated yourself about what you are eating?
  • Why do you do the things you do?
  • Why do you live the way you live?
  • Why do you live where you live?
  • Why do you do the work you do?
  • Why do you drive the car you drive?
  • Why do you have the friends you have?

These are a couple of ideas that you can start exploring and eventually figure out that there are other ways to do them. And I am not saying you have to change everything, I am just inviting you to be more conscious, more alert, more intentional and more deliberate. I want you to step outside your world and say –wait a minute, I like what I am doing but I want to add this or that and alter my life and make improvements–

Wake Up and Question Your Life

My challenge to you is the following. Sit down with your family and best friends and discuss with them the idea of changing your life. Most importantly, look at every aspect of your life and question it ‘why am I doing that?’ ‘is that the best way to live?’ The goal is to choose the best path for you and not just keep going unconsciously.

Wake up! Get excited, expose yourself to new ideas, challenge conventional thinking, and constantly expose yourself to new ideas.

We are always going to be unconscious of certain things we don’t know yet, and the goal then is to keep learning more and more new things constantly so that you expand and grow and live the best life you possibly can!

REACH UPWARD!

How To Create a Master Plan For Your Life

Do You Have a Master Plan for Your Life?

When I was 16 years old, an inspiring teacher told me to take out a piece of paper and write down the qualities that I want in my future wife. And I did what he told me, I took a piece of paper and wrote down what I wanted in a spouse.

Well, I grew up in a broken home around divorce and all that mess, so I was sure that I didn’t want all that. And I carried out that paper with me for years, and I started adding to it the qualities that I want by observing people.

And what I want to talk about today is the MASTER PLAN. We have got to know what we want from life! You need to have a clear mark destination, you must know where are you going!

[iframevideo] [/iframevideo]

 

SO I WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU TO HAVE A MASTER PLAN!! You have to write what you want and keep it in front of you.

Here are some points that you need to write down:

  • ’This is what I want my life to be like’’  
  • ‘’This is the spouse I want to be’’
  • ‘’This is the spouse I want to find’’
  • ‘’What kind of parents you want to be’’
  • ‘’What kind of work you want to have’’
  • ‘’What qualities you want to have’’
  • ‘’What kind of change and difference you want to be in the world’’
  • ‘’What you want each day to be like’’

Design Your Life!

I am here to say that you can design the life you want. But first, you have to know that you need to have a MASTER PLAN. Because every great accomplishment has a MASTER PLAN. Life is so precious and so important. You need to have a MASTER PLAN and put in it what you are going to do in:

  • The next six months.
  • The next year.
  • The next two years
  • The next five years.

You need to know what is the big picture.

The last thing we want is thinking that we are in our last days and wondering ‘’What if my whole life was wrong?!’’. SO MAKE SURE TO NOT  LET THAT HAPPEN.

So right now and today start your MASTER PLAN! WRITE OUT WHAT YOU WANT YOUR LIFE TO BE LIKE. AND BEGIN TAKING ACTIONS RIGHT NOW TODAY TO DESIGN A GREAT LIFE.

REACH UPWARD.

Overcoming Obstacles-Life Is Easier When You Are Better

Do you want a more meaningful exciting life? Do you want to be your best self? Do you want to have great relationships?

Too often and too many don’t know how to take the first step toward their goals. Righteous, powerful and meaningful goals.

So whether you are struggling in relationships, you are sick of being overweight, you are battling depression, you hate your job or you just want to have a meaning and purpose in your life, then the principles I teach on GregDenning.com will help you transform your life and begin achieving your dreams today!

It’s a rather simple formula: the bigger you become, the smaller your problems will be.

Life is often hard, simply because we are too soft.

The more we discipline ourselves to grow and improve, the more capable and qualified we will be to handle life’s challenges.  Overcoming obstacles becomes much easier.  But if we are too easy on ourselves, then life will be hard on us.

LISTEN NOW

CAVI is an acronym I love to use. It stands for Consistent And Vigorous Improvement. When we live by CAVI principles and habits everyday, life is so much more enjoyable, fulfilling and exciting.

10325144_983758868309544_6332295070287311743_nLife my friends is easier when you and I are better. If I am a better person, which means I have a better attitude, better thoughts, better reactions and better actions…etc. Then life would be so much better.

Don’t wish life was easier, wish you were better.

Get better through your trials or have constant reminders  from good words. And remember that input determines output. So either you learn from your experiences or you have to keep learning the same lesson over and over. So get some good input and be constantly on a quest of self-improvement.

If you fill your life with great ideas and great input, then you’ll get great results.  Reading good stuff will help you improve your life.

As you improve through input, you will see and experience circumstances differently and better!

  • Would it be so difficult if I were better?

  • If you were better, would many circumstances be easier?

  • Would you be struggling in relationships if you were better?

These are the questions to ask yourself all the time.

We must vigorously seek personal improvement. We must study and experience new and great things to try to expand our realities.

When we start seeing the big picture, then things are quite different. You begin to see the forest instead of  just the tree. If you get a bigger reality, you can see things more clearly.

So many people live in such a small reality in their neighborhood and literally choose to go with their neighbors, but when they leave their neighborhood they found that life is going beyond their neighborhood. After that they leave their state and then they leave their country and then they start visiting many countries and seeing many cultures. By that, they realize that the world is huge and that there are people everywhere living a different life.

Seek to expand your reality all the time.

So let’s take an honest serious look at our lives and say where can we be bigger and better. Life will be easier if we are better.

Quote:

“Life will be easy on you if you were hard on yourself.”

Greg DenningSo if we really push ourselves to grow bigger and better, then we can overcome so many more things. And obstacles that may seem really big to us will then be easily overcome.

Take a look of each area of your life and take some time and try to really think.

  • What problems that may arise that I need to be prepared for?

  • What abilities, skills and knowledge do I need to obtain?

 

Decide to become a better person and discipline yourself to grow.

Remember, life is easier when we are better!

And our problems are smaller when we are bigger!

Please share examples of how this has been true for you.

Please share this podcast.  We can help so many people overcome their challenges by sharing this perspective and helping them grow.

REACH UPWARD!
