Live your life

Eleanor Roosevelt said, “The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach our eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”

You are here on earth for a reason. So, make that reason a reality. Your purpose here on earth is to live your life, accomplish your dreams, to live a powerful legacy behind. It is not to waste your time, not to pursue other people’s dreams. You are here to be happy, not to be unhappy. Though you cannot avoid both emotions. They are real.

To know whether you are living your life or not, ask yourself, “Am really living my life or not?”

To live your life does not have to be all about MONEY. No, not about money. It is ALL about taking care of yourself, that means knowing what you want, who you are, loving yourself, staying true to yourself, and loving other people. You cannot love yourself without loving other people. But it is safe to love yourself first. If you don’t love yourself, you cannot love others. It is when you love yourself abundantly then you can extend that love to others. The real thing is that it has to be a genuine love.

People don’t live their lives enough because they live in fear. They fear everything: they fear people, they fear success, they fear what people are thinking about them, they fear hanging out with people (hopefully the right people), just write a few.

To really live your life, as I mentioned before, it is not about money. It is about YOU- your values. It is about acknowledging the things around you (both positive and negative). It is about embracing change and coping well with new things and with new situations. You cannot enjoy your life without embracing change. Change is the only thing that is constant. Whether you know it or not, we are changing every day.

To live your life also means you must see challenges as ways for you to test yourself, and to know yourself better. Do not see challenges as problems. If you do, you cannot enjoy your life.


Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions

We all want to be successful, but only a few will be successful. If you want to be among those who will be successful, you should be ready to make yourself uncomfortable. You are going to be ready to make yourself uncomfortable because you need the right environment to succeed. Without the right environment, you will be successful, but it will take longer to do.

If you want to succeed, you must create the right environment for yourself to grow. The right people. The right mentors. The right minds. If you surround yourself with people who are not wishing you well, you have lots of work to do. If you need to grow badly, you need to let them go. Don’t let people pull you back. You need to be around people who will push you to succeed, not those who will pull you to stay where you are. You need doers around you. You need like-minded people around you. They will push you to try new things.

Mark Twain said, “Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.”

Yes, if you want to grow and do great things, you need to stay away from small-minded people. You need to stay away from little people. If not, you will be like them.
