A man must live with purpose if he wants to Become a Force of Nature. Having a Life Mission and Life Vision will give you that purpose.
A Life Mission is a lean and simple set of overriding principles by which you will live your life. They will be at the core of everything you do from this day forward. You’ve had plenty of time to coast, but those days are gone. Now is the time to set your Mission in Armor.
Dig deep and decide who you really are when you are at your best. If you haven’t been at your best lately, just brush that aside. Don’t ever doubt it: you are a unique creation put together for a purpose. All men have personal greatness in them. All men have the tools they need to succeed at their Life Mission.
Think for a moment.
When all is said and done, who do you want to become? When it comes time to meet your Maker, what true principles and character do you want to carry under your arm into that meeting?
In contrast to your Life Vision, your Life Mission can never be complete. This is something you will pursue for the rest of your days no matter the situation.
In fact, your Mission is of most use when times are tough.
Forge your Life Mission so that some day when you are getting clobbered or in the middle of a Life Storm, you will be able to cope on pure principle.
There will be also be the usual days when your head hits the pillow and you’ve taken a pounding. If you can honestly say you lived your Mission that day, then that’s a high standard you can hold on to.
No one said your life was going to get any easier in your pursuit of excellence, but now you will have an ironclad set of principles to guide you.
My Life Mission:
I will pursue God, Excellence and Quality.
Here is a quick explanation of what my simple Life Mission means to me.
I will stay on the right side of God in my remaining days on this harsh broken planet. I’m no do-gooder or evangelist, but I will attempt to become the best I can be as a tribute to my Creator and I will avoid behaviors that will separate me from God.
I will also pursue Excellence and Quality in all that I do. You’ve heard the maxim: “If something is worth doing, it’s worth doing right.” Even all the little things. It all adds up, day after day until excellence and quality become a habit.
In the long run, your habits will define you. I would like excellence and quality to be the standard I am defined by.
It doesn’t get any more complicated than that for me.
Feel free to copy my Life Mission if it suits you.
Your Life Vision is the ideal lifestyle and the tangible results you have yet to attain.
It is your wish list for day to day life. It is everything you have yet to become and achieve.
You now have a Life Mission, principles which will guide you in this life and into the next. It’s time to bring in the concrete and chase after the good stuff in the here in now.
I say “yet” above, because every man has had high ambition and desires for his life. Have the courage to bring these ideals back to the fore of your consciousness if you’ve given up on them. Heck, once you get rolling and develop the abundance mindset of a true Force of Nature, you may scoff at your initial limited thinking.
Do not hold yourself to your current state of affairs.
For me, regret is already a thorn in my side. I for one am not going to limit myself again. I personally will achieve my Life Vision, no matter the time and effort. Life is good, but I am not yet there. Even if it takes me twice as long as I expect it will be glorious.
Imagine for a moment you achieve your Life Vision in 10 years rather than 5. Do you think for a moment that 10 years from now you’ll look back and say it wasn’t worth it? Trust me, the reward will be just as sweet, maybe more so. Especially if you lived your Life Mission all the way through, never compromising. Sweet indeed.
This will be living up in the High Country, where all rugged men of self-mastery live.
My Life Vision:
- A high energy passionate life with my woman
- Achieve specific monthly equity gains in my operating business
- Achieve specific personal monthly savings goals
- Stay shredded and gain 10 more pounds of explosive muscle
- Earn the freedom to fish in glorious fashion
- Purchase my American muscle car all cash for weekend fishing
- Five long weekends a year for vacation with my woman
- Become location independent for income
- Spend 2 years each living in various locations all over North America
There you have it.
Make no mistake gentlemen, my Life Mission will be pursued and Life Vision will be attained. The throttle is down and I will never stop.
Join me on the road to living up in the High Country.
All the best,
