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.
