Lifestyle Design- (the term) was originally coined by Tim Ferris in his book “The Four Hour Work Week” back in 2006.
If you haven’t heard of it before, the basics of it is designing a life that suits you while using uncommon rules to get you there.
While this dream of freedom of lifestyle isn’t a new one. Tim approached it with a new perspective. Instead of saving up for retirement, the deferred life plan as he calls it- he focuses on living that lifestyle now.
Lifestyle Design= designing a life you would love to live now-not when you retire.
Lifestyle Design is the Practical Side of Soul 2.0
Spiritual development and living a good life go hand in hand. If you are a spiritual seeker, then most likely you are looking for internal peace and a sense of freedom.
Life and our spirit are two sides of the same coin.
Life is the training ground for our spirit, and our spirit provides insight on how to bring more fulfillment into our lives.
In short as we develop our spiritual side, conversely we can develop our lifestyle in the physical also.
Does this mean we simply “imagine” a better life and then hope to “attract” a better life to us?
We get to the workshop and start designing a life we would like to live- then we set about growing into being the person who lives that life.
- Dream it
- Do it
- Live it
This fulfils two premises of the spirit- growth and experience.
Be spiritual isn’t about staying in your comfort zone so you don’t have to face anything scary. It’s about growing into your highest self.
Courage, love, and wisdom come from the ability to overcome obstacles in our lives. The physical manifestation of a life you have designed is the outward representation of the inward characteristics you have earn’t through growth.
Lifestyle design is the physical workshop of the Soul 2.0- where we get to work on crafting our dreams into reality.
Our mind and spirits have the blue prints, while our bodies have the hands to make it happen.
