Live fully by living differently (Why)
I’m Michael Cannon, a boundless Virgo water-rat, Drusus & Jace’s remote dad, for @Axelerant‘s success, of conscious choices and simple living by kindness through curiosity and reflection.
As I tired of dreams not reached as imagined, I stopped pursuing them. Instead, I started living by small everyday actions which empowered me to be who I genuinely desire.
Through many mistakes, I’ve learned that by aligning my choices with three simple concepts, my ideal self arises as priorities become easier to live by.
- Why is my purpose in life
- What are my principles
- How are the values I exemplify
To obtain such clarity, I’ve had to honestly recognize myself. Like, I have fat and my ego causes trouble. Past those, through daily habits, I’m accomplishing more in life than I ever imagined and without regret. Even, when a choice was the toughest I’ve ever made until that time.
I take better care of myself (What #1)
- Meditate for alignment
- Minimize debt
- Move for the joy of it
- Munch towards a long and content life
- Sleep well each day
I have healthy relationships (What #2)
- Courageous in thoughts, words, and deeds
- Give timely, specific feedback and recognition
- Give undistracted attention to conversations
I feel that general respect for differences, is key to getting along. In doing so, trust is built, which allows polite, yet blunt honesty through to positively help long-run relationships.
I am an inspiring leader (What #3)
- Challenge the status quo
- Demonstrate gratitude for peers and supporters thereof
- Focus on priorities
- Have clear, reasonable expectations of myself and others
- Share my learnings
And in everything I do, I stay true to my values.
Smile (How #1)
I don’t judge that people are different, only decide to accept, change, or release myself of those differences.
Demonstrate Respect (How #2)
I will be calmly present, investigate perspectives, and have compassion in moving us forward.
Have Purpose (How #3)
I consciously choose, live well, be curious, and default to action without regret.
