10 Life Codes to Empowered Living©

1. Understand you are number one

Self-care precedes authentic nurturing of others.

· Taking care of #1 is necessary to taking care of #2, #3, #4, etc.

(example: air mask on airlines).

· One needs to be full to fill others.

2. Know your purpose

Open the sealed envelope you arrived with.

· Know thyself.

· Be something bigger than yourself.

· Know what moves you, what inspires you, what motivates you.

3. Live your truth uncompromisingly

Be uncompromising with your heart and soul.

· Compromising your truth is a form of slow death.

4. Be present

In being present is a ‘present’.

· The past is gone and the future is not here…all you have is now.

5. Participate with those who honour you

Rid yourself of debilitating relationships.

· Work and play with those who fill your cup.

· Avoid those who do not contribute to your wholeness.

6. Assume nothing, be ready for anything

Know the tint of your perceptions.

· Be cautious of your preconceptions.

· Remember, there are always two sides to every story.

7. Act…do not overreact

Be proactive and response-able.

· Reactive behaviour creates victim behaviour.

8. Live a life, not a lifestyle

Make the priority becoming more… not having more.

· Be a human being, not a ‘human doing’.

· Most have a lifestyle that has them.

9. Remember…the journey matters most

Stop and smell the roses…the journey IS life.

· The going there is as important as the getting there.

10.Give the gift of YOU

Because of you, we are more.
