Life is too short to be Average…

We all share the same amount of time in the day but some of us seem to have less while others seem to have more. What is it that separates those who have average days to those who have extraordinary ones?

In one word PRIORITES.

When we were young time seemed to be stuck on slow motion, the days seemed long and the seasons lasted what felt like a life time, we lived for the present, as we aged the days seemed to speed up. The length of the day hadn’t changed, it still had 86,400 seconds, 1440 minutes & 24 hours. What changed was the way we lived, our lives started to become more about living and worrying about tomorrow.

What seemed trivial in the past now became crucial. Society and the status quo puts us under pressure to make a good living, get ahead and be successful, the downfall is that we spend so much time living and worrying about the future that we entirely miss the present.

As Bruce Lee said to a young apprentice in Enter the Dragon – Don’t think. FEEL. It is like a finger pointing away to the moon. Do not concentrate on the finger or you will miss all that heavenly glory.

Dwelling on the past and worrying about the future is the finger, living in the present is the heavenly glory.

You can’t change the past and worrying won’t change the future, living for today will set a path and create the future you deserve.

Be extraordinary, live for today…Tomorrow can wait.
