This is my 3-point manifesto on how to live a brilliant life. It’s short and sweet.
by Dane Findley
Manifesto Key-Concept 1: Create Happy Balance with Simplicity
Simplicity does not mean you have to sleep on a straw mat in a bare room; it does mean that you’ll probably feel better when you live the simplest version of the particular life you were meant to live.
So whether you’re retired and living in a studio apartment, or running a business empire from a 12-story headquarters, the joy and meaning of your modern life will deepen when you can simplify your daily routine and your surroundings.
The key to taking your fitness and health to the next level is to stay inspired. I encourage you to opt-in to my weekly update. The update will make it easier for you to keep motivated:
Manifesto Key-Concept 2: Rise Above the Times in which You Live
Contemporary life has many advantages for which you can feel grateful, but be discerning.
You live in a consumer culture that has mass-developed destructive daily habits, many of which you have absorbed into your own routine without realizing it.
Your soul is thirsty and that punch that’s coming down the corporate conveyor belt – you don’t have to drink it.
It will only make you thirstier.
Manifesto Key-Concept 3: Give Yourself More Time to Make a Positive Difference
The advantage to living the healthiest life possible is that it gives you more time and energy to do things that will benefit or advance the human race.
When you improve your physical, mental and spiritual health, it adds more years to your life, yes – but more importantly, it adds more life to your years. This can give you the additional time and energy to:
- demonstrate kindness
- embody compassion
- share love
- deepen your relationships
- help make a positive difference in the world
It appears that one day, you will have a life-review. But even if you don’t believe this, imagine that it is true.
During this review, you will be your own jury and bear authentic witness to your Self – and you will finally, viscerally, know how others secretly experienced you and felt around you.
Your personality and press-releases will evaporate and what will be left is the entire truth of who you were in this life.
Even if there has been selfishness and fear up to now, by living healthier you will have the chance to increase the zestful passion and genuine goodness in your own life-review.
Give yourself that opportunity.
The key to filling your life with joy is to craft a lifestyle that matches your unique interests while also supporting your health.
I’m committed to providing positive articles, emails, videos, and podcasts that entertain and inspire others to create daily routines that support health.
What if the best year of your life hasn’t happened yet?
I’m Dane Findley and my message is simple: it’s only in your thriving that you have anything to offer anyone – therefore, the best investment you can ever make is in your own health:
- my weekly update is for free-thinking, creative types who’ve decided they want to be even healthier than they are now
- the evidence-based, actionable strategies for a better life – that I share freely – are for those intrigued by personal development
- if you are kind and curious, you will likely find this information motivating and helpful
- there’s nothing wrong with someone being rigid in their beliefs, but if that’s you, you’ll likely not enjoy my newsletter (no hard feelings – I wish you well on your journey)
- if you go more than 4 months without opening one of my email messages, you will automatically be unsubscribed.
I focus mostly on good news deliberately.
There are many sites that do an effective job of convincing you that the world is increasingly toxic – and while that is perhaps true, I feel like that territory is already covered adequately. So, instead, I choose to motivate others to discover the vibrancy and joy of optimized health just for its own sake.
This site, Over Fifty and Fit, is inspired by a primary intention: to help you improve your daily quality of life.
To express this intention clearly, I’ve created this 3-point manifesto on living brilliantly.
Which of these three are you already doing?
