How much of life am I actually living?

 

“It’s always the challenge of the future, this feeling of excitement, that drives me.” ~ YOSHIHISA TABUCHI

TRUTH: Enthusiasm is the driving force of any success. It will launch you from where you are to where you want to be. It is the inspired sparkle in your eyes and the propelling spring in your step. And it’s contagious … attracting the exact type of people you want around you.

Ask Yourself: How much of life am I actually living?

What An Amazing Thought!

Nurture your personal growth

A man who views the world the same at 50 as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life.
MUHAMMAD ALI

nurtureWhat a shame it would be if you went 30 whole years and didn’t undergo personal growth.  Each experience you have, each book you read, each time you contemplate a situation, your opinion changes.  It could be strengthened or perhaps weakened.  You might find it adjusting to a slightly different direction or drastically changed.

Ask yourself:  How has my life changed in the last few years?

Perspective

When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.
VICTOR FRANKL

perspectiveDo you have a situation where you can’t change or is it that you won’t change?  The usual answer is that you won’t change. We can change our attitude and we can change our own direction – no one can take that away from us.  And there is our freedom.

Ask yourself: What’s the DREAM I have put on the back burner until now?

Warwick’s philosophy on complaining and the solution

The only thing complaining does is convince other people you are not in control.
WARWICK BASHFORD

They learn to take responsibility for their actions and results, and have an inbuilt understanding that frequently life is not fair. They emerge from difficulties with gratitude for the lessons learned and with phrases such as, “Next Challenge!” then get back on their road to the top.

Ask yourself: What’s one regret you don’t want to have in your life?

What do people thank me for most often?

The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.
JIMMY JOHNSON
