It’s Your Life, Live It To The Fullest!

this is your life

You have the power to break through and live your life to the fullest. It’s your choice to take action now.  Start with a clean slate, take a chance, make a choice, Why? Because you deserve it.

There are 3 C’s in life, Choice, Chance and Change. “You must make a Choice to take a Chance or your life will never Change.

If you want a change in your life you need to choose to just go for something you want, instead of whatever life has given you.

You need to accept the fact that when you do decide to go for your dreams, that you step away from the crowd and create your own path in life.  There will be failures, but that’s just part of the process, just like growing up, only they call them, growing pains.

The founder of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, said: “I could accept failing, But I could not accept not trying… and never knowing what if.”

If you ever stop going for your dreams, how will you ever know if they would have become real?

All of us want a life that is magical, magnificent and one of fulfillment.  Yet many of us think that a magnificent life is something that happens to us, almost as if it is something done to us without us doing anything at all.  We think that a life of fulfillment is something reserved only for the lucky ones.  We can all have a life full of memorable moments and happiness regardless of our circumstances. You just have to believe and want it.

“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away!”

Understand that when you feel dissatisfaction, that it is really the first step to a better life.  It’s nature’s way of saying that there is something better out there for you, you just need to go out and find it.  Without hate, we would not know love.  Without tiredness, we would not know what energy felt like.  Without Darkness, we would not know how beautiful the sun is.

One way to feel great about your life, is look for more things to smile about in it.  Know matter what it is or what happens to you, just smile.

You’ll be amazed at how much a smile can change your attitude and change the way others look at you.

Can YOU Learn To Be Happy?

A professor of positive psychology at George Mason University in Virginia, Todd Kashdan, also author of Curious, says, “What truly provides satisfaction is having a meaning and purpose in life, which is doubly important in the midst of this current economic nightmare.

I totally agree with his statement. With our economy in such a down spin, it makes it really hard to find the positive side of things. But, it you find you have a purpose in life, then that’s all you’ll focus on.
You’ll wind up not worrying about everything else that’s going on in the world. That doesn’t mean you don’t care, it just means you have better things in life to do than worry about all the negative things.

Todd Kashdan also says, “We need to move away from the concept of trying to fill our days with frequent pleasurable moments and fewer negative moments.” In other words, fill your day with sunshine and fun, with happiness and joy, and stay away from the negative.

There will always be a lot of negativity in life. When the real estate market crashed and the stock market spiraled downward, a lot of people lost their life savings. They became unable to make their mortgage payments, car payments, and went into credit card debt big time. I know how that feels, as I was one.

The thing you have to do in this situation is just deal with it. Never, ever, put all your thoughts on it. Instead of thinking of all your debt, think of a solution! There is a solution for every problem, Math 101! Don’t ever beat yourself up over what has happened in your life, move ahead and find the happiness you deserve. Everyone was born in this world to be happy, including YOU!
