One of the most important things we can do during our lifetime is to find out what really matters to ourselves in life. I hear it like a broken record, over and over again- find your passion in life, find out your reason why you do what you do! I know the earlier we find out the answer, the better our lives will be. Also remember, it's not just about us finding this out to make our own lives better. Everyone we meet and get connected with, throughout our lifetime, will benefit too.
Since you have started your journey (the day you were born), and you are now thinking about your future a little bit more (especially seniors), you have the fantastic opportunity to start figuring out what your why is all about. It's really a powerful concept that many people never really figure out during their lifetime. As we go through life there comes opportunity after opportunity after opportunity to find out things about ourselves. This all works in helping us to figure out our direction of our life along with answering that all important question, why am I here?
I have been telling people that I have a new mantra in life - I don't give a rip! You can substitute something else for rip, but be careful. ;-) It's not meant to be a negative about not caring. To me it's about me focusing on those things that are important in life to me (my faith, my family, my students, my basketball players, my friends, my future, my dreams and goals, etc.). I don't want to waste time on things that don't really matter. Things that won't make a real difference in life. When I'm on my death bed, I want to look back and see that I spent time on things that mattered in life.
I've spent a lot of my 50 years or so doing that. But I've also spent too much time on things that don't matter at all. I think I'm old enough to know better and more importantly to do something about it. The thing is, I've always been old enough to do something about it. That's what I want to help you see that you too can do something about it at any time. As with many success principles, it helps to get going on this sooner rather than later. How are you on identifying your WHY in your life? Get going today! Let me know how's it going and / or if you need help figuring things out.
