EP014: Guiding Principles For Living A Powerful Life

Your principles are custom made for your unique life and based on your individual experiences. They may sound strange to somebody who is not you — and that’s ok.

Your principles are a set of guidelines to help you navigate who you want to be in every situation. They are your personal wisdom.

Last night, I sat down to write my principles out. I came up with these by looking at the biggest struggles in my life, and reverse engineering them to the root.

Everything I’ve learned and distilled into a principle is the result of pain from making a mistake.

After you’ve listened to today’s episode, I want you to take 20-30 minutes today to think about your principles and outline them. Leave me a comment below and LMK what you come up with.

We are all creators, but it’s easy to lose touch with that ability in our daily lives.
