Living Your Best Life Now – WIth Bill Hoffman

“Living your best life now”, in the past 10-20 years has become a phrase that has become a mantra for many people. It’s somewhat synonymous with “Being the best version of yourself”, albiet a bit more hedonistic.

So what does it mean, and perhaps, what should it mean? Well that depends on the circle you’re in. It can mean that you believe that the universe, (or God), intends this for you. That you “deserve” the best, go after it! It belongs to you!

All of that is in an effort to help us believe that even though we don’t really feel that way, we can somehow help ourselves just go ahead and believe that, and exercise the “law of attraction”, and it will somehow magically start to happen to me. Sadly, this is yet another twist of the self-help movements that have been around forever. That somehow you are the master of your destiny, (not really the universe or God), but that because you believe it, that becomes the magic connection to see it come to pass. In religious circles, it is expressed as having enough faith to connect the magic connection. If it ain’t workin’ for you, then it’s because you don’t have enough faith. In all these instances, if you notice, it all comes down to you.

Multitudes live defeated lives looking for a better life, and will seemingly do almost anything to get it. The charlatan self-help peddlers have always been here, as well as the religious versions, (the worst ones). But why are they so alluring? I believe there are several reasons, and more that I will articulate today. Here is a small list of why:

  • Dissatisfaction with my current place in life
  • Greed
  • Entitlement
  • Laziness
  • Get rich quick mentality
  • Insecurity
  • Lack of maturity on many levels/childish thinking
  • Hedonistic/Utopian mindsets
  • No true spiritual foundation
  • Unhealed emotional traumas
  • Gullibility/Lack of Discernment
  • Failures that lead to depression and a defeated heart
  • A spirit of “lack” or poverty that causes you to rebel against it
  • Judgements against parents that did not provide enough (in your eyes). “I’ll never be poor like them”.
  • Playing victim
  • Out of touch with the genuine “you”, and knowing your intrinsic value

If we are motivated by any of these erroneous notions, we will be looking for an answer or response to them. The genuine answer may surprise you. It’s not found in any of the above listed areas. It’s found in taking responsibility for yourself. Not being a victim of any of the above. Why?

I will never find me, my genuine self, purpose or “why”, unless I don’t. I will always abdicate responsibility, therefore, I cannot ever tap into the goodness and plans that God has for me, as I will be looking for it vicariously through other people. The world does not owe you a living on any level. So instead of blaming God, the universe, your parents, yourself, that you feel as though you are somehow prevented from living your best life now, try surrendering all these lies for the truth.

“The world does not owe you a living, you owe the world something. You owe it your time, energy and talent so that no one will be at war, in sickness and lonely again. In other words, grow up, stop being a cry-baby, get out of your dream world, and develop a backbone not a wishbone. Start behaving like a responsible person. You are important, you are needed. It’s too late to sit around and wait for somebody to do something someday. Someday is now and that somebody is you!” Stef Daniel/The Professor’s House

The truth is, according to God, you have everything you need to do and become everything that you can. If you try to get it some other way, you are shortchanging yourself, and the world around you.

If you want to “customize your life,” find out who you are first, then you can be and become the genuine, complete you…aka… Your Best Life Now!
