Everyone wants to live happy and fulfilling lives, but sometimes it can seem like an impossible task. Humans are multifaceted beings and as such, it sometimes feels as if when you get one part of your life under control, another aspect goes off the rails! But what if there was a way to help you find balance and true happiness in all aspects of your life? In his life altering book, “The Miracle Morning” Hal Elrod gives you the tools and advice to take your life to the next level. He calls it Level 10 Living, and with a little determination it is something that everyone can achieve.
Setting Your Goals
The first step is figuring out where you are right now on a scale of 1 to 10 in 10 key areas of your life. The next step is to come up with ways of boosting each area so that they can all be 10’s. Being honest with yourself is key here. No one is going to see what you wrote down as this is strictly for you to help you visualize where you are now and how to plot your path to fulfillment. Here are the 10 areas and a few examples for how to raise each one to Level 10.
Family and Friends
Even introverts need connection sometimes. Try to include shared time with the people in your life. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t enjoy your alone time, but look for a healthy balance between the two.
Have dinner with friends or family once a week.
Call rather than text someone for a midweek or midmonth chat.
Check in on friends you haven’t heard from in a while.
Hal Elrod writes that the path to being successful starts with personal development. What do you feel is blocking your path to becoming the best version of yourself? What do you need to change or work on within yourself so that the blockage can be removed?
Try to read 10 pages of a book a day and over the course of the year you could have well over 15 books read!
Take continuing ed classes for your field of expertise or branch off into something new.
Keep a journal so you can see how far you have come.
Spirituality means more than just religion, it’s about how you connect with something that is bigger than you. And you can embrace it any way that feels right to you.
Daily meditation. Try building yourself up to 30 minutes a day in 5-minute increments.
Daily acts of kindness.
Reflecting on what being spiritual means to you.
I think everyone want to find financial abundance and stability but what that might look like will change depending on the person and where they are in their lives.
Put together a budget that you can stick to.
Save 10% of your paycheck.
Work on bettering your credit score.
Many people spend as much, if not more time at work than in their own homes, so it is important that your job affirms you both personally and professionally.
Get additional certifications in your field or a new one if you are thinking about changing career paths.
Networking with others in your field can open new doors.
Attend conferences and conventions in your field.
Your romantic relationships need a different kind of loving care than your other relationships. It’s important to remember two things when evaluating this section and coming up with your goals: all relationships are different, and they require work, so don’t compare your romantic relationship to anyone else’s.
Set up a weekly date night.
Try to really tune in when your partner is talking.
Share activities that are important to you.
Fun and Recreation
All work and no play would make anyone feel out of sorts and drained. Make sure to include some fun activities to help charge your batteries.
Try a new restaurant, bar, or club.
Maintain better sleep patterns to ensure energy is there.
Institute a monthly game night with family and friends.
Giving and Contribution
Living a Level 10 Life is more than staying focused on yourself and your needs. It also includes caring for others so that they too, can live the life they desire.
Donate items that you no longer need to a church or a nonprofit.
Smile at people you pass on the street.
Volunteer to help at your local pet shelter.
Waking up or coming home to a mess can sap all your energy and set you up for despondency and feeling overwhelmed. Assuring that your home and work areas are at their optimal level will help you attain your own optimal levels.
Declutter your home or desk.
Develop a cleaning schedule and stick to it.
Hang light blocking curtains in your bedroom.
Health and Wellness
How you feel physically, emotionally, and mentally can affect how you are living your life. Often though, ignoring your own body and continuing to push on is much easier. Take time to take care of yourself.
Get in for a physical.
Start a fitness or exercise routine.
Drink more water.
Evaluate Your Progress
There is a third step to this, and that’s to repeat this exercise from time to time to evaluate your progress. One heads up, be ready to be surprised by what you learn. When I did mine, I was surprised how many of my areas were ranked as being fairly high. I think it is possible to get so into the mindset that you’re not living to your potential that you ignore just how far you have come. Make it a habit of redoing your list every couple of months to ensure that you are progressing and get ready to live your best life!
