Life’s too short (part 2)

Hi everybody welcome back!

 

Are you noticing how short life is?

Some of you may think the phrase Life’s too short is a negative attitude towards life but I disagree. In fact I actually see the positive in it!

Why? Because once you get over this “mental” hurdle it enables you to focus on what you believe your purpose is in this life or even the point of having a life.

If you are one of those unfortunate people who think you are just here to exist until you die then you are going to be in for a surprise. We all have a desire to achieve, the difference is some of us supress it and others seek to gain it. So what is the surprise?

“The desire to achieve will never totally leave your life!”

When I worked as an adult services manager I loved to ask my elderly clients if they had any regrets, one 94 year old lady told me…wait for it:

“I wish I had been more daring!”

As human beings we love to achieve, its how we are wired! Now before you jump off the page to go somewhere else, let’s talk about what achievement is: Dictionary definition-

“A thing done successfully with effort, skill, or courage”

You see it’s not all about business and money (though the money part is definitely helpful!) rather it is the sense that you are doing what gives you a great sense of satisfaction. Don’t feel bad if this feels like an alien concept to you because even though life is short the good news is you’re still here! The next part takes a little bit more work…

3 things you need:

  1. A good sense of who you are – not what others think or have told you, you are!
  2. An understanding that you make have to put some effort in to whatever you do!
  3. To recognize that not everyone will be excited by your ideas – its human nature!

As we continue on this theme I will address these areas. In the meantime, I would like to encourage you to take a look at the further reading link below it may inspire you! Because…
