Q. What kind of life do you want and how close are you to living it?
Choices in life are a balancing act. We can all choose to do certain things every day of our lives. You can get a warm glow from changing your attitude to life.
Be kind to yourself when you muck things up (we are only human after all !)
Focus on what’s important to your life and make positive changes to make you happy.
We have to see life as an adventure. Each adventure is a chance to have fun, learn something, explore the world and broaden our horizons.
Q Are you ready to make life your sparring partner ?
Change your thinking and step outside of yourself. Every day we are faced with an immense number of choices and every action we make has an effect on our family, friends, society and the world in general and that effect, can be positive or detrimental.
We get torn between what’s good for us and what’s good for others. No one said it would be easy . Life is a challenge – Thank God ! It allows us to stretch and grow, it moulds us into a better person. If it was easy we would get bored. Only dead fish swim with the stream – ‘live’ fish swim against the currents ! Each flick of the fin makes us stronger.
Q. Which fish do you want to become?
Change what you can change and let go of the rest. Time is short and do not waste any of it . Aim to be the very best of everything you can be. If you are a parent, be the best parent. If you go to work, be the best at what you do.
Set your own standard and leave a little space for yourself each day. Know where true happiness comes from. Look after yourself. You are the Boss and Captain of your own ship.
Here are some areas that you can focus in for the choices in your life:
- You can choose where to be.
- You can choose how to act.
- You can choose who you trust.
- You can choose who you avoid.
- You can choose what to say and what to do.
- You can choose what to believe and you can choose what to say about yourself.
- You can choose what to say about others.
- You can choose what behaviour to have day-to-day.
Q. What can I do today to make my life better ?
Ask it each and every day. Raise the bar. Your thinking needs to stay focused but flexible. Demand those special things, amazing feelings and outstanding magic experiences.
Be very clear about what you want , and very clear about what you don’t want.
This is an important distinction : If you can recognise it not the thing or event that you really want, but the FEELINGS that you associate with it, then your goal shifts from the thing or the event, to the EMOTIONS that are connected with them.
Don’t ask yourself what the world needs – ask yourself what makes you come alive, and go do that, because the world needs people who have come alive !
