“For things to change, YOU have to change. For things to get better, YOU have to get better. For things to improve, YOU have to improve. When YOU grow, EVERYTHING in your life grows with you.”
In The Art of Exceptional Living Jim Rohn, an American entrepreneur author and motivational speaker discusses what he does to encourage listeners to improve their lives. Life is meant to be lived and deep down, we are all in pursuit of what it means to feel truly alive.
If you are not there yet, then something needs to change. Don’t worry! Our lives are like the seasons and change is never far away. There are steps you can take starting today to MO’ve forward and start living the life you desire to live.
In my opinion, living an exceptional life is like growing a beautiful garden–which is something I am reminded of, especially at this time of year. Caring for your garden and nurturing the flowers requires the same power of attention and self-discipline that is needed to achieve one’s goals in life. It takes time, but rest assured, you will reap the rewards of your labour with a beautiful and bountiful harvest.
So, as it is spring this month, it’s time to plant your garden with the seeds for the amazing life you can enjoy this summer. I encourage you to jump into life with both feet and start living your life AS IF. Here are my three tips to help you create, cultivate, and grow the life you desire to live.
Create the Conditions for the Life you Desire to Live
Planting seeds is the first step to growing your garden. For me, planting seeds for an exceptional life means creating the conditions for the outcome in life you both desire and deserve. This means educating yourself. You don’t know what you don’t know until you know. When you keep learning you discover what it is you need so to create these desirable conditions.
Conferences are a great place to learn, grow and rejuvenate for re-emergence into our professional fields. They plant the seeds of reinvention. Conferences are like miracle grow for your dreams. They are goldmines for finding what it is you want ad need to take your life and career to the next level. I have spent many years travelling the world to conferences and every single event has shifted something within me and helped me reconnect with my WHY. While you are sure to have at least one “aha” moment while attending a conference I often find that in the days and months after I still get inspired with fresh ideas and innovations to integrate into my work and life. While you plant seeds by attending the conference, the knowledge will continue to grow, and you will reap the benefits of the seeds you sow in the months ahead. What is the conference that will connect you with your profession? If you are MO’ving your profession to the next level, what conference can help you grow the fastest?

Cultivate the Relationships for the Life you Desire to Live
Relationships are essential to cultivating the conditions for an exceptional life. There are different types of relationships we need to be aware of and nurture to help us build and maintain our best life. Family, friends, community partnerships and work colleagues are all part of your relationship ecosystem. But if we want to grow, we need to think bigger and expand our network and circle of acquaintances. Conferences offer the perfect opportunity to do this.
Besides advancing your knowledge and skills at conferences, you get to meet people and build new networks and relationships! It’s been said that you are the average of the 5 people you spend time with, and I find that at conferences there is a unique energy and fertile environment for cultivating new relationships and provides a special opportunity to build bridges and even re-connect with people who have mutually shared interests and – such as fitness, health, and wellness.
Meaningful relationships create a sense of belonging and this is something that becomes apparent at conferences. It’s been said that belonging is a fundamental human need. Often there is a heightened sense of belonging in attending a conference on a topic that interests us because we are all eager to learn more. This is the special ingredient that goes beyond the conference curriculum; when we meet others who share our interests and passion, it is exceedingly MO’tivating. You will want to nurture and cultivate these new friendships and relationships to keep you on course to creating an exceptional life even after the conference is over.
Watch your Dreams and Vision Grow to support the Life you Desire to Live
Having a vision of what your exceptional life looks like, planting the seeds, and cultivating your relationships will set you up with the conditions to grow. Don’t expect change to happen overnight. Like growing your garden, it takes time for the results to appear. But they will! And when they do you will feel proud! The intentions and steps you take now and the experiences you create and take advantage of to learn and grow throughout the summer months will do much to make you feel rejuvenated and MO’tivated to take on the remainder of 2022.
Now is the time my friends. Plant the seeds. Grow your dreams. Grow your relationships. Grow your exceptional life starting today!
