What is the Ultimate Lifestyle?

Since the mission of this newsletter is to help you define, carve out, and live your own Ultimate Lifestyle, I figured I should devote some space to laying a proper foundation for doing that.

Before you can hit a target, you need to know where it is! So, to begin, let's answer the question:

What is The Ultimate Lifestyle?

First of all, it's different for different people. There are no rules or formulas. For some people, it means a lot of money, lots of "stuff," a fast-paced and "jet-set" sort of lifestyle. For others, it means a very simple, slow-paced life that focuses on service to others. And for others, it's every possible scenario in between these two "extremes."

There's no right or wrong lifestyle, or good or bad lifestyle.

There's just what works for you -- and it will likely change over time. I know it has for me.

No matter how you end up defining Ultimate Lifestyle for yourself, now and in the future, there are 8 components that must be considered:

1) Income Streams

To live your Ultimate Lifestyle, you must have income streams flowing that allow you to pay your bills and finance all the "extras" you prefer. To me, the ultimate target to shoot for in this arena is to have income streams flowing whether you "show up" for "work" or not, so you can choose what you want to show up for (even if it continues to be what you call "work" or a "job.").

That's what I've been able to achieve by applying my Invisible Path/11th Element strategies combined with direct marketing on and off the Internet.

Having income streams flowing whether you show up or now seems like "pie in the sky" to many people, but it's actually very attainable in today's world. You'll learn more about how to do it in future issues.

2) Emotions and Beliefs

Many people fail to create their Ultimate Lifestyle because they have emotional blocks, issues, or beliefs (what I call "p.s's." or "master biography files") that hold them back. Other people have produced extraordinary results and could live their Ultimate Lifestyle, but their blocks, issues or beliefs prevent them from doing it -- or fully enjoying it.

Therefore, living The Ultimate Lifestyle must include having access to resources and inner skills that allow you to uncover and remove, heal, or release any blocks, issues or beliefs that hold you back. You'll learn more about how to do that in future issues.

3) Fulfillment and Satisfaction

Whether you have a 9-5 job and career, you're a full-time mom, or whatever you do with your time, a big part of living The Ultimate Lifestyle means getting as much fulfillment and satisfaction from what you spend your time on as possible.

Many people don't ask for this, don't focus on this, and therefore don't get it. You must make it part of your intention and focus!

4) Living Environment

How and where do you want to live? In the mountains? In the big city? On the water? Multiple homes? Do you want to live in a big home or a small home? Is privacy or seeing beautiful scenery out your windows important to you? Do you like modern furnishings, antiques, or an eclectic mix? Living the Ultimate Lifestyle means asking these questions and having a home base that nourishes you at a very deep level. My family recently moved to Charlottesville, Virginia in pursuit of the nourishing living environment we craved -- and we got it, even better than we expected!

5) Relationships

What good is having income streams, a healthy emotional life, empowering belief systems, a great living environment, and a sense of fulfillment and satisfaction from how you spend you time if you're alone (and don't want to be) or your relationships with significant others (parents, siblings, kids, associates, etc.) are a mess? Believe me, I know about this one from long personal experience (before meeting my wife, Cecily).

Therefore, living The Ultimate Lifestyle must include having access to resources and inner skills that allow you to attract, build, and maintain healthy relationships.

6) Health

Again, what good is having income streams, a healthy emotional life, empowering belief systems, a great living environment, fulfillment and satisfaction, and great relationships if you have health problems that drag your quality of life into the gutter?

Dr. Robert Lindberg says, "We spend most of our life gaining wealth and we then spend most of our wealth on gaining back our health."

Living The Ultimate Lifestyle means having access to knowledge, resources, and skills that allow you to get healthy, stay healthy, and quickly resolve difficulties if and when they arise. I discussed some of the resources I use for this in previous issues, and will continue to share them in future issues,

7) Time

You can have income streams, a healthy emotional life, empowering belief systems, a great living environment, fulfillment and satisfaction, great relationships and health and if you don't have any time to do what you love, to follow your non-work passions, or to truly enjoy anything, what's the point? I know many people who could absolutely be living their Ultimate Lifestyle, but they choose to work too much, to the detriment of their quality of life. That's too bad -- to have the choice and ability and not do it.

8) Wealth Building, Management, and Responsibility

The final component to living The Ultimate Lifestyle is having systems in place that allow you to use your income streams to create wealth (as you define it), manage it, grow it, protect it, structure your financial and business affairs for maximum efficiency and personal benefit, and find ways of contributing and giving back (if that's important to you, which it is to me and my wife).

I'll be writing a follow up article, called "The fuel that drives the Ultimate Lifestyle" shortly.
