Master Number

The Most Important Number on a Journey
(last month change: -10%)
33%
A number is generated from various most important totals of this month. If a number is increasing monthly = growth. If not, then it's a stage of 'stuck'. Or even worse, going down the hill... It's as simple as that. No more 'lying' to one-self, or walking through life in a blind!

Commentary

All details below are to share the entire journey. My aim is to make these updates as Visual as possible. Yet, to keep it simple too (bearing in mind that it's the entire life journey is tracked here... there sure are many details to look into!)

In summary:

The month of August was dedicated to making trading business work. Intense studying and strategy developing, which kept me away from pretty much all other planned activities (Ideal Day Lifestyle commitments, too) Was also hit by spine issue, and was diagnosed with Lyme disease (both currently actively taken care of, and healing) Tough month, to say the least, and worst performing one as well. But charts speaks for itself...

The rest of July's journey is shared below.

Thank you everyone who's here, to help keep wheels spinning.
Most Memorable Part(s) 3 Biggest Lessons Learned
'I got guides', strong experience
---
Spine issue & Lyme disease - realized, once health problem hits, you begin to live with fear of poor health, almost every day
---
Good time with kayaking group, long night chatting
---
Do I have fear of change & growth, big time? Happy to just stay low? Another insight...
---
Whole month focus - trading. Pushed my skills to a new level
Trading is just another job? I figure, I don't like  to work FOR money. MUST to create Passions, Portfolio, Passive income!

Inspired Living by 7 Virtues

The Ideal Day Blueprint, which was designed around 7 Timeless Virtues of Enlightened Living, as guided in a book 'The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari', by Robin Sharma.

Crafted for an extraordinary day, full packed with ingredients to lead into fulfilling lifestyle.

Totalling together, the 7 Virtues of Enlightening Living numbers tells me how close or far I'm to be experiencing the the Ideal Day Lifestyle.

The aim is to hit 80%+ to Ideal Day Lifestyle Project totals (currently stands at 70%).
I'm currently restructuring the entire Blueprint format. Major changes in categories. Nothing available to share this month, until works are finished. 

Wheel of Life (Reality Checks)

One of the things I had to do, when started working on taking a turn in life, was to perform my Reality Checks. And be very honest with myself. Wasn't easy.

Wheel of Life idea was borrowed from Tony Robbins, as learned during his Unleash the Power event, London 2015. A powerful experience. 

Having thought thoroughly, through ingredients needed to include into each category, and having added few more guides, I was able to understand my current reality way clearer than ever before. 

Results in the image tell a story: 1. Blue circle is first ever reality checks, performed in Oct 2016; 2. Yellow circle is the most recent (reality checks are performed every 3 months)

Reality Check, June

Emotions & Meaning, August
Last month change: -7%

Emotions & Meaning

Various emotional checks and tests are undertaken on monthly basis. These include self-fulfillment, peace, happiness, human connection, self-esteem, feeling appreciated, gratitude, forgiveness and several more. 

Throughout experience of this journey I found that relying on just one type of test (happiness, for example), provided by one type of source (psychology website, etc.) is not always a reliable report to follow. I learned that a combination of such tests, coming from few different sources is a better option. 

Takes only 30 mins a month to complete, but it adds so much more clarity to your daily life. Tells a story how your emotional state affects others areas, too. Well worth to keep a close eye on!

Income, Outgoings & Targets

This has been the toughest category out of them all, during this journey.

I currently rely on trading and investment strategies as my main income source. I dedicated this month, pretty much entirely, to studying trading, growing my skills and developing personalized approach to the financial markets. Did not make profits, yet losses too are not great of the number, -£152. While loss is still a loss (never feels great), I feel that I finally managed to gain control of a wheel, and drive in much smoother and confident way. Giving it another month, to see how far I can push next. However, after encountering huge losses March, I'm still 124% away from my Year 2017 income targets (set as £5,000)

The charts are here to share the complete story. So far.

Too, as one of other few activities, here I also note how the financial situation does affect Ideal Day Lifestyle & the Emotional Life as well. These doesn't help to generate income, but it sure is a powerful tool to have in place. I believe, on any journey.
