Manifesto: a public declaration of principles, policies and intentions…
This life is yours to live, but the sad reality is that we find ourselves in societies that have already assigned labels and roles to us without our consent.
The choice that we make as adults define the rest of our lives, so if at any point you are not where you want to be, it is always a good idea to go back to the drawing board and decide on a new way ahead. I believe the biggest flex is living life on your own terms, it is by far the greatest luxury.
Having a manifesto allows you to write your life story the way you have always wanted to be. It will also keep you accountable. This is a promise that you make to yourself, I hope that you will keep and create the life that you want.
I help you lay it out, I have used an 8-pillar model that highlights these eight specific areas- spiritual, emotional, mental, social, creative, professional, financial, physical-that I believe we need to succeed and to lead a wholesome life. This does not have to be your current reality, you can definitely be aspirational.
Remember to be patient with yourself as you go along, for some of us it is just a continuation of a life well-lived but, for the rest of us, it is literally building from the ashes of our painful pasts. Whichever category you find yourself in, I hope that I can be of service to you, and please know that I am rooting and praying for you. It is your time to win! I have included my own to give you an idea on how to phrase yours.
