A Fearless Soul song asks some very important questions, if today was your last day, would you have regrets? Did you live or just exist? You do not know when your time is done, do not waste it. If it does not matter at the end, it does not matter now. This moment is too precious, do not waste it on yesterday’s mistakes. Make your life matter, make it yours today. Don’t wait. Take things that do not matter off the off the scale of life. You will never hear anyone ever say on their death bed, I wish my neighbor thought more of me, or I wish I would have spent more time thinking about debt and bills. If it does not matter in the end, do not let it matter now.
Many say that family is the most important thing to them and spend most of their life away from them at work. Stop intending to be and be. Grab life by the horns and live. Do not let the majority of your life’s story be stuff you had to do. If you have a nice house but no time to enjoy it, sell it and get something that gives you freedom to be, to do. There is no gold in the golden years. Retirement is mentioned very sparingly in bible, but when it is, it is mentioned as a form of punishment. Do not wait. I remember a message from the book rich dad, poor dad, that read something like, rich people do not work for money, they rarely think of it the way poor people do. Money is not the goal of the rich, it is merely a result of intentional living. Life is like money, it is either an expense or revenue, it is profitable or non-profitable. Going back to economics 101 here, but there is an opportunity cost associated with everything you do. Stop making money your goal and make what money would do for you your goal. If money would bring you freedom and peace of mind, just go ahead and experience those feelings now.
The human being is the only being on this planet that can experience something, without real time stimuli. We typically use this ability to remember how some event made us feel mad or sad. However the best application is to imagine your life full, like mana from heaven has make your life perfect in every respect. If you can imagine a perfect life, and you can, just take the opposite of your traditional worries and doubts, you can live it in your mind. Once you master living it in your mind strange things begin to happen, doors begin to open, lights come on, and the path to that life becomes lit. Live the life you want internally, as vividly as you can and it will become your reality, just keep that negative person in your head locked up as much as you can. You will make mistakes and you will fall down, but you can get up. Funny thing about living the intended life, you become like spider man. You always get back up. So today, dust your self off from whatever life has dumped on you, forget yesterday, be present today and start living your perfect life. Remember, the perfect life is for you, not what someone else wants for you, you do not want your perfect life, because someone else does. Be an individual, be free, be powerful, be you. God made you perfect remember. It is harder to be imperfect. Once you take your hands off the wheel the ship centers on your path much like a ship at sea. Be great today.
