Don’t Delay Your Destiny

I believe we all have a destiny. It’s not simply for a select few. There’s no one in this world like you and your energy and presence in this world is of immense importance.

I wanted to share this grand view with you today. You’re life should be an epic exciting adventure. If you haven’t found your passion for life or what makes you tick, take a few minutes today and assess your life. Determine your strengths and weaknesses and outline your course.

There’s truly no time to waste. Everyday is a gift. Realize this incredible truth. You were put here to do great things. I hope this message encourages you to reevaluate your life. Any and every level of hard earned success is a destiny. Seize yours!

Your Impact Can Be Huge

Just a reminder, you only get to be here once and your impact can be huge.

It doesn’t matter where you’re at right now in life. You don’t need to imitate others, it’s important to be yourself and create a life’s work that leaves legacy.

What you do here and how you effect the lives of others is of great importance. Never forget that truth! You only have to focus on one life- your own. Make sure the life you lead creates a positive change on many people.

How are You Fitting Into Your Life Today?

Take a moment to examine your life. Simply look at your day’s events and reflect. Are you fitting into a life you want?

It’s easy to get in a routine and simply fit your way into a life but at some point it feels uncomfortable. You’ve got to build a life to your size and fit in where you desire to be.

Get back in touch with your dreams and aspirations, your personal kindness and generosity, your gratitude and blessings, strengths and weaknesses.

We live in an abundant world and you deserve abundant thoughts that shape and direct your life. If you’re just getting by and fitting into a life that’s not quite up to your dream life, remember you’re good enough right now at any point to rethink and restart.

It’s okay to be anywhere in life but take time to reflect. Don’t just make a place for yourself, find a place. Take care to gently examine your direction and place abundant thoughts within your mind as seeds of hope building and reflecting back to you the life you desire.

You’re worthy of productive and abundant thoughts. Don’t simply take up space in life. Instead with care, work with yourself and in yourself to find your place in life.

A Journey in Bravery

At certain points in life we really have to dig in deep and become brave. It’s easy to be complacent and let fear immobilize us at times.

Being brave doesn’t require much but a little bit of change and change can feel very uncomfortable. Being brave isn’t about adapting a warrior attitude or winning battles. It’s simple a journey in which at some turning point you decide to be brave. You do something outside your comfort zone and it scares you but changes you.

If you want new results, adopt this method of bravery. Try something that will change your life in a new direction.

Remember, nothing is easy. Even sitting back and doing nothing has its price. The struggle is in the learning. The reward is the lesson. Be brave in your journey and learn from your bravery.

Live to Learn

Life is a series of lessons. The same can be said of success. It’s not easy when you don’t have a manual, guide book or teacher. Sometimes you simply have to show up and let life guide you to learn from it.

Never be so afraid to learn from life that you neglect to live. It’s imperative you pay close attention and align your goals and direction in accordance with a few of life’s lessons.

Don’t get stuck on failure. There is no real difference in life lessons between an A and a F just a perceived difference. The final grade doesn’t matter most of the time. Showing up for class matters all of the time.

If you have no teacher, learn the lessons to the best of your ability. If you’re fortunate to have a mentor, appreciate the time they put into your life.

Never spend too long focusing on the should haves and would haves, you aren’t meant to be perfect or you’d have all the answers from the beginning. Keep going and living to learn. Whether a new subject or language, the act of learning assists you in life.

Whether you’ve recently learned the hard way or not, adjust your sails and stay on course. Develop a passion for living and you will find a clear cut passion in life that leads to success. Share your zest for life with others. Determine your direction and let the subtle lessons we learn here help strengthen your course. Never let one or many defeats completely stop you in your tracks.

Keep learning and going after life, even if you simply live for your goals. Be accepting of failures, rejections and tough terrain. They teach us. Be surprised and grateful for blessings and success. Life is a journey best traveled by living for its marvelous and wondrous teachings.

Use Your Thinking to Propel You

Thoughts truly are things. They can transform us or lead us into despair. It’s challenging to always be upbeat but you can attempt to control your mind. You can try to steer from negative thoughts to positive thoughts.

So why not try a small challenge to keep your thoughts positive for 30 days. It’s difficult but the results will amaze you.

Let your own mind start working in your favor. Quickly replace a negative thought with a positive one. Substitute anxiety and worry with gratitude.

Try it for 30 days. Never let a negative thought seep so deep into your mind and find a home there. A positive mind is soil for good things. It can imagine and propel you. Choose positivity!

Stray from a Mass Manufactured Life

In order to achieve real lasting success you have a definitive choice in life. You can allow your life to be directed by popular role models but you may find your life is robbed. If you copy someone else’s life you are eventually living their life not yours in some manner. While role models are good, sometimes they’re only good at modeling a life- their own.

Instead, you must opt to find your own path. Seek it out and create a life of your own design. Think your way to a new life. Only you can do that and what excitement, wonder, greatness and passion it can bring to you and the whole world when you make this choice.

Real lasting success begins by building a life and straying from a mass manufactured life filled with following people, the latest trends and fads.

Let not your own life be robbed by living a carbon copy lifestyle. Be bold and brave and design a real life free from emulation that defines and changes the world. Take back your power from mass ideas and let your individualism shine and inspire others.

The Other IN Crowd

From social media to news, it seems everyone has gotten good at telling us how to live. In a few articles, I can be told what to eat, which fad to follow and what dress to wear. They’re determined to give us a carbon copy life. You can get a slice of that popular life if you spend your life following all the people you’re supposed to look up to.

I decided a long time ago fad people and idols were not for me. I have learned to steer clear of what the masses tell me to do. You’ve got to expand your own thinking for the life you wish to create to get past the one they’ve created for you. I think there’s another IN crowd. It’s one less talked about but full of pioneers, leaders and achievers. It’s the crowd I follow.

If you want to be part of an IN crowd, aim for these: INspirers, INnovators, INtellectuals, INvaluable minds, INteresting people and INtriguing lives. It’s something to think about.

Find a Brainstorming Buddy

Through the years, all of my best ideas have been born at thinking sessions. I like to hold thinking sessions of my own but I also like to bounce off ideas with someone.

I encourage you to find a brainstorming buddy. This is someone you can talk to about your ideas and brainstorm. Perhaps you have a plan for your writing or business. You’d be amazed at what someone else might be able to contribute to your existing ideas and plans.

Try to work with other people and help them with their plans too. It’s not two friends meeting for coffee and talking, it’s a major thinking meeting where your goal is to advance ideas. When we’re active in a society building together it’s a collective group of people building each other up instead of tearing each other down.

I’m going to address the fact you may have no one you feel comfortable brainstorming with. That’s okay. Never underestimate the power of putting your own own to paper and setting aside some time for a major thinking session. Together or alone plot it out, think big and let your mind do some creative work.

I built a small business on thinking sessions and I did a lot of personal writing after plotting out my work in my own scheduled thinking sessions. I encourage you to get in the habit of devoting time to think out your plans in life and then put those plans into motion. Happy thinking!
