A few thoughts that only scrape the surface of living an extraordinary life.
Two doors and the choice is yours.
You CAN have any kind of life that you want if you only want it badly enough. Let that sink in for a moment.
Did it hit you yet? Right between the eyes? Re-read it…let it hit your bones. You CAN have any kind of life if you want it badly enough.
That said, what haven’t you been doing or living and why haven’t you been? See, too many of us have been beaten down so thoroughly by life, so many times that we will no longer really go for it.
We sit back, living a life that is just acceptable. I mean, if that kind of life was a heartbeat, it would barely be palpable, barely measurable. Meanwhile, underneath our skin, and in the corners of our brain and the background of our soul we want to freaking scream! Acceptable sucks.
There is a life that everyone wants to live, and while that life is different for every person, the sad fact is that MOST people are NOT living that particular life that they truly want. Tragically, the only thing stopping most people from having it, is themselves. Nothing else.
If they just stepped out of their doldrums, if they dared to wipe away the proverbial cobwebs from their ambition, put on their superhero costume and go for it with authority, they could create it. Right now!
We must get to the point where we look at the mediocre, the status quo, the average, and we say NO MORE! I will no longer settle for an uninspiring life. I just won’t do it!
Once we go there…once we allow ourselves to make the startling, eye-opening revelation that there is a life out there that our heart fantastically desires, the next step is to put your foot on the freaking gas pedal with full force and go for it every single day of our lives! WE MUST!
You have to break out of your slump, get out of the ditch, climb out of the hole and be willing to glimpse the victory of the life you really want to live. After you’ve seen it, proceed with power! Be unbridled. Be unstoppable. Be a force of nature!!
We must become self-actualized people! For when we do, we needn’t ever be concerned about falling into the trap of living a life that is unsatisfactory. Upon the arrival of living at this level of consciousness, we then become part of the solution to the entire world, and no longer part of the problem.
As a great leader once told me, “The Greatest Hell on Earth You Could Ever Know is Meeting the Man You Could Have Been!”
So, looking many years into the future, how do you wish your life to look? What would the “person you could have been” BE? What would the life of this man or woman look like? What would he or she do? What would they have contributed to the world? What kind of relationships would they have had? What kind of passion did they live with? Where did they go? What did they do? Who did they share it with?
We don’t have 500 years to get it all done! The clock is ticking. Ready, set, GO!
