What luxury means in today’s world.
Luxury – who wouldn’t want a life of ease, comfort, and high-end amenities?
But when looking at the goal of a luxurious, gracious lifestyle just what comes to mind? Serenity and peace on a private island in the Maldives? Your own independence and freedom to travel first-class anywhere in the world?
Maybe your idea of luxury follows the global trend that states luxury is less “What I own,” and more “Who I am.” And no, this isn’t a tired, anti-capitalist rant about how our identities have been confused with consumption.
Luxury As A State Of Being
Self-actualization is the name of the future luxury game.
Looking at Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, this is a positive evolution for humankind.
Back in the day, status and luxury focused mostly on showing-off how well we could fulfill our basic needs - Fine dining (food), spectacular homes (warmth, rest, water), and steady careers (security).
Nowadays, luxury emphasizes the top of Maslow’s pyramid – self-actualization.
A good place to start? These three mindsets will help you achieve your full potential.
Set Goals And Complete Them
This is a big one. If you don’t know what you want, you are just merely drifting through life. Achievable goals align with your values, morals, and how you can best help others. You will see so much of your life turn around once you commit to doing something and completing it. Time is precious and goals are the force that gives you Luxury Time.
Develop A Positive Mental Attitude
Setting and accomplishing goals are best friends with a Positive Mental Attitude, or PMA. A term coined by Napolean Hill, developing your PMA will open door after door of opportunities for you. Because when you are thinking positively, the metaphorical rusty junk metal of your life will magically transform into precious golds. It’s all about mindset.
Never Give Up
All of this is easier said than done. The road to becoming your best self is challenging. We love to root for the underdog and we admire those who still believe in their dreams. What’s more sad than meeting someone who has given up their dream to create Digital Fashion and accepted working at Subway for the rest of their life instead? We all have potential. The difference between the successful and non-successful are those who never gave up on themselves.
Word Up: The Luxury Content Lifestyle
