Why Living In Alignment Is Important

When working with clients, one of the most important things that we focus on is making sure there is alignment between what they want to achieve in respect to their goals compared to the actions they take, the words they speak, and the beliefs they hold onto.

If a client is living in alignment all of the important elements must line up. They can’t be taking half-measures or self-sabotaging their efforts. If they are, then these are the kinds of barriers that must be removed in order to achieve their goals and create the quality of life they desire.

If you want to create wealth, become healthier, or if you just want to be happier, your thoughts, feelings, and actions must be in alignment and they must be in alignment all at the same time.

For example, if you want to lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle, it would be almost impossible to do if you are not sincerely motivated to do so. Just saying the words is not enough, and it certainly not enough if you are still hitting the fast food drive-through each day. Using this example, the thought, the feelings, and the actions do not match up so the positive results you seek will more than likely continue to elude you.

It also takes courage to live your life in alignment. First, you must have the courage to let go of what is holding you back and limiting your results. You have to have the courage to let go and to allow new experiences, people and things to freely entire (and possibly leave) your life.

You also need the courage to take risks, to go for it, and to have faith in yourself. Imagine if your dream is to see your grandchildren grow up, you might have to consider giving up the bad habits that could prevent that, such as smoking, or drinking, or indulging in an unhealthy diet.

If your goal is to have the relationship of your dreams, maybe a change in dating patterns and an approach to dating is warranted. If you want to win the lotto… then start the buying tickets.

That is what it comes down to… Living in alignment is about aligning your actual behaviors with your values, morals and beliefs. It is both as simple and as difficult as that.


Changes are difficult and it often takes time to bring upon those changes in your life. By living in alignment and having the day-to-day accumulation of positive action, thoughts, and feelings, you are taking he steps to build an amazing life.

By consciously working diligently to put yourself in alignment with your, dreams, goals, and ambitions on a daily basis, you can more easily build a life that is truly abundant and happy.

Do you live you life in alignment with your goals and ambitions? Are there things that you could do that align everything in order to achieve and see better results?
