Altitudinarian is an adjective that means someone who has a high-level of ideals, a high-level of goals, or a high-level of leadership. In other words, someone who has lofty ideals.
How being altitudinarian can lead you to unbelievable success
With the unique power of our imagination, there is nothing we set out to do in our lives that we won’t be able to achieve. Being an altitudinarian and setting lofty ideals leverages our imaginative abilities and pushes us to accomplish something beyond our imagination.
Success begins in our minds, and if we are not limited in our thinking, we’ll always love setting big goals.
Many are too afraid to set big goals. Perhaps because they don’t want to fail or they feel they don’t have enough courage and think the bigger things are not meant for them.
In this article, we highlighted how altitudinarians can achieve unprecedented success in life by setting lofty goals.

What are lofty ideals?
Lofty ideals are goals that aim for something big, of a high standard, and often require overwhelming efforts to attain.
Lofty ideals are beneficial as they can help you raise your level of thinking and change your status. Lofty ideals may sometimes sound beyond reach for the fainthearted, but to the brave, they are the kind of ideas that help people to accelerate their success.
Here are some examples of lofty ideals that can be set by an altitudinarian
Lose 30 pounds of fat in 8 months
Achieve financial freedom at 30
Publish an international bestseller
Climb Mount Everest after 1 year of preparation
Break a Guinness World record
Reunite with an ex-partner

Establish a foundation and help 5,000 people finish college
Dare to dream big by becoming an altitrudinarian
You can achieve enormous success in your life if you get out of your comfort zone and begin to dream big. Making it a habit to set lofty ideals will make you hungry for success.
Never settle with small achievements; you can always achieve something bigger and better.
To dream big, practice keeping your latest achievements as the benchmarks and setpoints for the next goals you are aiming to attain. Move up from one level to the next level of success until to reach the top.
10 important factors to achieving lofty ideals
For your lofty ideals to become actualized, you have to really treat them as goals and not just mere wishful thinking. You must have a willingness to pursue them with everything you’ve got.
Here are 10 factors that will guide you on how to set and achieve your lofty ideals
1. Connect your ideas to a bigger purpose
In order to succeed, connect your lofty ideals to a bigger purpose. Having your goals connected to a bigger purpose means there are bigger things at stake and you will be encouraged to work for it. It does not make any sense to have a different goal and purpose.
2. Make ideals your top priority
If you really want to achieve something, make your goals and ideas your top priority. No one achieves something by just putting in 50 percent of his effort. As Arnold Schwarzenegger said, “I don’t believe in plan B that’s why I do all I can do to avoid failure without having a safety net”
There will always be some conflicts and drawbacks but if you are determined and make your goals a top priority, you are set to achieve what you aspire.
3. Make plans that will get you there
Working without a detailed plan is always a recipe for failure. In order to reach your goal, a detailed plan must be drawn and how that plan should be executed along with your ultimate purpose.
4. Make ideals scalable and reachable
As mentioned earlier, our imagination is so powerful that we can accomplish big dreams but it will be useless if we can’t put that dream into reality. This is why our lofty ideals would be measurable, attainable, reachable, and scalable.
5. Keep it under your hat
Keep your lofty ideals by yourself. Sometimes, telling others about your plan can jeopardize the whole thing. You don’t want to hear negative comments from other people who don’t know your purpose. Other people’s skepticism can kill your whole dreams and can discourage you to continue.
6. Acknowledge fears and confront them
All goals have challenges and you should know this. By acknowledging these challenges, it will be easier to confront them. Don’t avoid fears and challenges. Face them properly and confront them based on your set of standards.
7. Think only in terms of success
Always look forward and don’t think of any fallbacks. Only think about the positive results and why you are doing this, what do you want to achieve, and what is your purpose. Your ultimate purpose is the driving factor why you are doing this and shy you should succeed.
8. Prepare for opposition
Oppositions are part of the challenges. But it is better to confront oppositions when you are half-way or near to success. Again this is the reason why you should keep your goals within yourself. It’s hard to confront opposition when you are not even starting yet.
9. Plan for contingencies
Although Plan B is not recommended, you should always check and prepare for solutions even before the problems arise.
10. Get help if necessary
Asking for help from people who you think could support your goals is a great idea to turn your lofty ideals into achievement. That’s why you should surround yourself with people who are also altitudinarians – so you could share common goals.

There are signs daily telling us we are going to the right (or wrong) direction. They are all around us and it’s our job to look out for them. If you are a spiritual individual, you’ll understand when I say your angels are constantly communicating with you. If you’d like to know more about angels and connecting with them, I recommend renowned best-selling author Doreen Virtue. If you’ve not heard of her, her books are a must-read.
But even if you’re not spiritual and you’re thinking the talk of Angels is a step too far, have a think about one word … coincidences.
Things happen in life that we call coincidences, but if you put the pieces together around these coincidences and work out the puzzle you’ll be amazed at what you’ll find.
In the words of Albert Einstein:
This brings me on to numbers – if you haven’t heard of numerology you can read more on an excellent website Numerologist
In a nutshell, numerology is related to your name and your life path. This is a really interesting way to look at your personality, your character and understand whether you are on the right life path or not.
Numbers are also sent to us by our angels, again, Doreen Virtue describes the meaning of numbers in her book, ‘Healing with Angels’
And in her own words …
Sometimes we don’t want to look for signs because we’re scared, we’re worried about the change in our lives, the upheaval … but if you’re unhappy anyway and you’re unconsciously calling out for help, (or you may already be aware that your angels are helping you and you are consciously asking for their help, but you still feel apprehensive), if you remember the angels have your back. They are sending you signs to help you move forward. They want you to be powerful, strong and awesome and they will help you achieve these goals. Believe and look for the signs.
I remember I was well into the New Year, Christmas felt like a long distance memory and I noticed that the last thing on many people’s minds is relaxation. I understand that maybe Holidays period is very busy, so there’s not much relaxing going on. Then the new year has started and most people are back to rushing from one place to another, appointments, meetings, deadlines … I’m definitely one for advising that you set yourself goals and targets, but I believe in relaxing too. Relaxing helps us focus, truly focus on where we are and what we need to do. It helps to eliminate that fuzzy fog that surrounds many minds as they sleepwalk through life day in, day out.
Taking time out to assess and soothe your body and soul is the key to moving forward.
How many times have you heard people saying: “I haven’t got time …” These are the people who need to relax more than most.
So if you’re one of those people who feels the need to keep moving, there’s no time for chilling … ask yourself how fast are you actually moving forward? If you feel you simply CAN’T STOP! Even the thought stresses you out. Then you are probably that person that needs to relax.
Here’s a little task for you … start writing a journal, look back over it week by week and see how fast you’re moving. While writing your journal put some feelings, thoughts, and emotions into your writing, turn your writing into a relaxation technique. It’s an amazing method. If you do this, you’re still ‘working’ as you’re writing down your achievements, but at the same time, you are actually allowing yourself to put things into perspective.
So remember, when you are relaxing, you are not being lazy, you are not wasting time … the exact opposite … you are re-fuelling your mind, body, and soul.
The New Year has started and New Year Resolutions have been made around the world. Some are doing well … others, lasted a day or so
Did you make New Year Resolutions?
If you did, ask yourself how many of them are related to an underlying passion or incompleteness that isn’t being fulfilled?
If you were to believe that you were sent here on a life mission or a quest that needed to be completed how would you feel about your life journey so far?
Are you happy on your journey? Do you want to achieve more? Is there a niggle deep within that knows you have more to offer: more to give the world? Most people answer, ‘Yes,’ to this question because most people are on the treadmill of life.
But imagine this:
Imagine knowing that your first quest on this physical plane was to feel the love from within. When we are born this is exactly what we feel, love for ourselves and those around us. It’s as we grow and develop that society shapes our thoughts. That’s why many people are unhappy with life because they have forgotten the reason they are here, many are still searching for it while others’ have given up. Don’t give up. Don’t be that person who loses themselves. You have the power to change your thoughts.
Do you feel an urge, a passion – something deep within that you know you need to fulfill? This is your quest. Your life mission. The reason you are here. If it’s not something you can do overnight, then put a plan in place and start making it work for you. Life is far too short to be having regrets make 2017 your year. Start the quest that you were sent here for. I get excited as I write this, as I know there are so many people out there who are connecting with this blog post and know that feeling. Once that feeling is ignited, excitement bursts from within.
One of your main quests in life is to show love always. Once you can show love your life will be transformed. Truly love, forgive and diminish negative thoughts. Giving love will enable you to receive more love and you will find that your life quests are so much easier to follow. Opening yourself up to the universe and letting go of any negative beliefs will enable your quest to be achieved much easier.
Much unhappiness comes from people not following their passion. Many people are on the treadmill of life; following a routine, having a job just to pay the bills, raising a family and generally getting on with life because they have to.
We all have bills to pay and maybe you’re not in a position to just drop everything and start following your dreams. But incorporating your passions into your daily life will make life much easier and a nicer place to be.
This could be spending an hour or even 30 minutes on something you love every day. If you continue to do this and ensure your passion is embedded into your daily routine before you know where you are you may just be able to give up that day job. My biggest belief is that small steps count. Small steps are better than taking no steps at all.
We’re all here for a reason, if you have a passion deep inside that isn’t being fulfilled, then you know your purpose for being. Follow your heart and your dreams will come true. Start putting plans in place to make this happen. It’s a New Year, so make this year count for you. Get off the treadmill and start doing some real walking and you’ll be amazed at what you see and find.
Just remember time is passing anyway, so make sure you fit your passion into your day. Don’t regret not moving forward, don’t let other ‘stuff’ get in the way, you deserve to be happy and if you have a yearning to do something with your life, follow that yearning because that is your passion calling out to you. That is the reason you are here.
Again, another word that you may be thinking isn’t really that positive, it’s just a word, but if we were to talk about how open you are, what would that mean to you?
How open is your mind at this moment in time?
How open is your heart? How open is your spirit? How open are your eyes?
How open are you to change? How open are you to opportunities?
It’s so easy to become stuck in a routine with every day passing us by, in essence, life passing us by. Even if we want to change we don’t know how, or we’re so used to the comfortable routine we’ve created that we’re scared of changing it.
But the only way to make changes in our lives is to have an open mind. Be open to new opportunities. Don’t dismiss ideas or changes because you feel it doesn’t fit with your current way of thinking.
The only way we can move forward in life is to open our eyes, open our minds and open our hearts. Once your mind is open, the world is full of possibilities and life becomes much more exciting.
This may not happen overnight, but once you’ve decided to have an open mind, you’re already more than halfway there.
Just remember life is too short to have a closed mind.
It’s true … it doesn’t actually cost anything to be kind! From a smile in the street, to letting someone in front of you in a queue or giving up your seat on the bus. Simple but effective acts of kindness that will be integrated into your life and make you a happier person.
So here’s five simple ways you can be kind today:
Ask yourself which friend could do with your help? Even a simple text to ask how they are doing, tell them you are thinking about them, can truly lift their day.
Do you have lots of clothes hanging in your wardrobe that need to be cleared out? Do it now! Donate to charity! In fact, go that one step further and give away an item that you love!
When you’re out and about today, compliment someone … never underestimate how much they will need it.
Hide notes of encouragement to your spouse, partner, family members, children, friends … whoever in your life needs it. Maybe they don’t need it, but it will show them how much you care and will boost their day.
Visit someone who needs company; care homes and hospitals are the perfect places to spread kindness. You’ll be amazed at how many people don’t have visitors, so make a difference in their lives.
These five ideas are just the tip of the kindness boat … there are plenty of ways to show kindness and reap the benefits in the process. Remember, you can’t fail by being kind, as any kindness given is never wasted.
