Optimizing Your Life


Life Philosophy

Story By Chad Nelson

My Philosophy Of Life

“You’re living philosophy is a system of ideas, beliefs, and the principles you use to engage reality and the nature of your life in general.” – Paul Chek 

Interesting quote… so let’s take a few minutes and consider if you have a living philosophy?

How are you going to live your life? 

In the section below you’ll see Paul Chek’s video. I would consider him 1 of my top 5 mentors.When I first started learning about life philosophy I could not comprehend the meaning.

In golf as in life, it is the follow through that makes the difference.

Japanese Word


known as continuous improvement, is a long-term approach to work that systematically seeks to achieve small, incremental changes in processes in order to improve efficiency and quality.

I choose… to live by choice, not by chance; to make changes, not excuses; to be motivated, not manipulated; to be useful, not used; to excel, not compete. I choose self esteem, not self pity. I choose to listen to my inner voice, not the random opinions of others.

Above you’ll see a tab, I’ll list a lot of books or audio books to get you started on your philosophy and personal development.

Over the years, I have lots of other mentors, some I personally know and others are online or through books.

One day, I had a mentor recommend I listen to Jim Rohn.

Top 5 Mentors

Jim Rohn

For more than 40 years, Jim Rohn honed his craft like a skilled artist—helping people the world over sculpt life strategies that expanded their imagination of what is possible. Those who had the privilege of hearing him speak can attest to the elegance and common sense of his material. It is no coincidence, then, that he is still widely regarded as one of the most influential thinkers of our time, and thought of by many as a national treasure. He authored countless books and audio and video programs, and helped motivate and shape an entire generation of personal-development trainers and hundreds of executives from America’s top corporations.

I would consider him 1 of my top 5 mentors who has shaped my life. You’ll see lots of videos from Jim Rohn below.

I was very fortunate to attend a live seminar before he passed away in 2009.

"If you learn to set a good sail, the wind that blows will always take you to the dreams you want, the income you want, and the treasures of mind, purse and soul you want."

"Your philosophy determines whether you will go for the disciplines or continue the errors."

"Your personal philosophy is the greatest determining factor in how your life works out."

You’ll also watch videos from Tony Robbins and other inspiring leaders.

Tony Robbins is an American author, entrepreneur, philanthropist and life coach.

Remember… who do you want to become? It all starts with your personal philosophy.
