There are more than 290,000 confirmed cases and 17,000 deaths in New York alone. Not to mention the deaths around the world. This is a tragedy of epic proportions.  

This is a good reminder of the fragility of human life.

There are many things for us to learn from this shared experience we are all having. One of which is that we are solely responsible for our lives and that we cannot remain the same as we are now. We have to be constantly growing as a person. 

We do this by creating change in our life. Create small changes. Small changes lead to big changes. Small changes are doable. Small changes are attainable.

We live in a world where technology has trained us in “instant gratification”. So many things are accessible within a matter of seconds at our fingertips. 

We take this same expectation of quick turnaround times and apply it to our lives. We place unrealistic expectations on ourselves and wish to attain these expectations in a timeframe that is, more or less, impossible. As a result, we fail and get disappointed. Constant disappointment leads to discouragement and a dampening of the will. 

Soon, we no longer strive for very much at all and start using statements such as “If the universe wants me to have it then I will have it.” Reality check, the universe is not looking out for you. Jupiter, Pluto, Uranus, and their compatriots are not sitting around trying to figure out how to solve your life problems. 

Don’t outsource your life. The burden of responsibility is solely on you to create changes and manifest your goals in life. You have the power to do so but you need to take ownership of your life first and that includes all of your thoughts, speech, and actions. 

When you realize that you are the author of your life, you will choose to write a story that you, not others, will look back upon one day and be proud of. 

Make this life ever so worth it!

Purpose Drives Focus

Today, I wanted to continue on the topic that I touched on in my last post which was purpose. If you look at a person’s day, most of what happens in their day is driven by purpose. When we get in a car it is quite often, if not always, to go somewhere specific. Even…

Where have I been

It’s quite obvious I’ve been absent from posting on my blog. It has been six and a half months since my last post.  Over the last twelve months, I’ve invested a significant amount of my energy and time in the creation of my book. That was not the only thing I was absorbed in. Much…
