Existing is what everybody does. Living, now that is truly rare. People who wake up every day feeling blessed with another day to be alive are the ones that are truly living on this earth.

“I never dreamed about success. I worked for it.” ~ Estée Lauder

Dxrzs6cV4AAGJG4

Here’s a success tip from someone that achieved high levels of success. She’s saying that dreaming of success won’t get you there all by itself. You have to have a dream, but you’ll stay a dreamer unless you back up your dream with work. Learn this lesson early on in your life and it will pay dividends all the time. If things aren’t working out the way you want them to it likely means you’re not putting in enough work to make them happen. Get a clear focus, a clear dream, a clear goal, and then follow up with focused work.

“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.” ~ Maya Angelou

Screen Shot 2020-06-26 at 12.20.46Here’s a great yardstick for life, not the number of years that we rack up but the number of times we have those moments of awe that make life worth living. Be sure that as you’re living your life you are searching out moments that will take your breath away, because that’s what we’re here for, to experience joy and awe and all of the good things that life has to offer. If you don’t lose sight of this, you’ll have an amazing life experience and you’ll keep that inner youth all the days of your life.

“Life is what we make it, always has been, always will be.” – Grandma Moses

Screen Shot 2020-06-17 at 15.19.40The life that you live is not determined by outside sources. The life that you live is determined by what you make of it. Everybody is faced with challenges they have to overcome. Some people complain about them, some people overcome them and use them to get stronger and better.

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” – Aristotle

Our daily habits is what ultimately makes us who we are. If you do everything with excellence, you will reach excellence. If you do everything with mediocrity, you will become a mediocre person. The choice and the act is up to you.

“Your imagination is your preview of life’s coming attractions.” ~Albert Einstein

If you like watching movie previews before a film, you may like the idea of your imagination acting as your own sneak peek of what to expect. That’s because you dream it up in your brain first before it happens.

Active-Imagination-

This can work to your benefit, but also to your detriment, so be sure to use it advantageously and imagine your life the way you want it, rather than the way you don’t want it. If you aren’t actively using your imagination you’ll grow stagnant, and you’ll notice that your life hasn’t really been improving or worsening, just kind of hovering in the same spot.
