As I mentioned in the previous post, it is important to gain as much joy and knowledge from every situation as possible. The more we can do this, the more fulfilling our lives become. By doing this, you can become content in any situation.
However, I do not believe we are meant to live merely a contented lifestyle. I believe we are meant to live an extraordinary one.
So the goal moves beyond finding contentment. We must live our dreams.
Recently, my wife and I have taken a long, hard look at our lives. We have decided that, even though we have a good life, it is not exactly the way we want to live.
So why not enjoy the life we are living but also tweak it to make it the extraordinary life we always dreamed of?
We are now in the process of planning the next stage of our lives. A stage that will be more aligned with our dreams. In our case, it will take a lot of time and planning, but the result will be well worth it. And I believe we will learn a lot about ourselves in the process.
I encourage anyone who is not completely and utterly exultant about their lives, to dig deep within themselves to find out why. Once you have answered that question, you can begin changing your circumstances and align them with your dreams. And YES, you DO have the power to do that.
Make a decision to go after whatever it is that makes you complete and do not let anyone or anything stand in your way.
I believe you will find that the journey will be just as rewarding as the destination.
Sometimes we have to make big changes to begin to live the lives we were meant to live. Often, we have to change our surroundings, our jobs, and our circumstances; but it all starts with a change of attitude. Once you have he correct mindset, the rest will more easily fall in place.
Believe you can make the best life possible for yourself. That is the first step. Believe it, then go get it!!
