What are you saying to the world? Is the life you are living good enough for you?
We often live the life we think we deserve. This is usually an unconscious decision on our part. We unconsciously make decisions based on our past and our fears. We know the life we should be living but we aren’t living it.
Knowing is not doing. If you know what you should do and don’t do it then what you know doesn’t matter. Only applied knowledge is power. Action is power.
If you tell people or family what they should do, but aren’t doing it yourself why would they listen to you? We must put what we know into action.
Why not? What’s not happening? What’s stopping you from living the life you deserve? From living the life that will be an example to others? From living your message to the world?
I think fear often stops us. Fear that we can’t do what we know we should do. Fear that we might make a mistake. Fear that we will take the wrong path and be stuck in a life we hate.
But really, isn’t any of that better than living a safe life? A vanilla pudding life?
Are people going to laugh at you if you fail? Does it really matter if they do?
Isn’t it better to try to live the life that promotes your message than to live a safe bland life like everyone else? Do you know why everyone else lives a vanilla life? Because they are scared too. And it’s easier to make fun of you trying to live your ultimate dream life than to try to live their dreams.
I’m at a place in my life that I have decided to live my beliefs and values. I’m building the message of my life. I will be an example of the life I think we should live. A life of growing things, a life of giving, a happy healthy life. I want to enjoy my life. I don’t want to try to squeeze my enjoyment into weekends and vacations. I want to enjoy every day.
What message is your life giving?
