Life. There are many ways to live it. Many ways to use it. Many ways to waste it. There are billions of people on this planet. Each of us has a different life to live, one with its own unique purpose. It’s up to you to find yours.
Each person’s circumstance or situation will be different. Some will live in poverty. Others will have plenty. Some will wait for opportunities to come to them. Others will be go-getters. Some will search aimlessly for their place in the world. Others will know exactly where they want to be.
It doesn’t matter where you fit right now. What matters is that you realize that there’s an amazing, extraordinary life available to you if you want it. If you’re reading this right now, I’m pretty sure you do want it.
Take time every day to think about what you want your life to be about. You get to choose. I encourage you to start making plans for your life today. It is never too early (or too late, for that matter) to begin planning for the future.
Sit down and think about what your ideal life looks like. Visualize it. What makes it amazing? What makes it extraordinary? How are you using your life to help others or to improve the world? What are you doing to reach your highest potential?
Paul Arden, one of my favorite authors, wrote: “Your vision of where or who you want to be is the greatest asset you have.” That quote has inspired me since the day I first discovered it. Those are definitely words to live by.
After you get a good visual of your life, put things down on paper. Writing things down will give you something to refer to. I suggest that you refer to it often. It’s good practice for achieving goals. The life you see for yourself might be a long-term goal (something that is years ahead of you) or a short-term one (something that you can make happen in the near future). It doesn’t matter. What matters is that you start thinking about, then working towards, the purpose that’s waiting for you.
It’s your life. Be better. Be inspired. Be unlimited.
