Are You Living Your Best Life?

What makes successful people get up every day and go out in search of more success? If you were a billionaire would you even bother thinking about making more money? I hope you answered yes because if you did that means that you are amongst the small percentage of people with the correct attitude towards success. Successful people constantly push themselves to achieve greater success. Do you think this is out of greed? No it is not. (Well not all of the time)

It is because successful people understand the importance of challenging themselves. They realise that it is extremely easy for inertia to set in. The problem is too many people allow themselves to get into a rut, it is really easy to say. I can not or its not possible or I could never or I am too old or too fat. Do you find yourself saying these kinds of things to yourself? If you do you are not going to be able to live your best life until you change your thinking, your words and your behavior.

You may even ask yourself why should I bother to push myself? Well only you can answer that question really. But consider this. If you are perfectly happy with your life, if there is absolutely nothing to complain about, nothing that you would like to change, nothing you wished you could do, nothing you wished you had. Then hey, cool. There is no reason what so ever for you to challenge yourself.

But if there is even the smallest amount of dissatisfaction in your life then you need to get up from in front of the couch and do something to improve your life. It does not matter what it is that you want to improve and it does not matter how long it takes you to improve it, what is important however is that fact that you have recognized that there is a need and you drag yourself up and set about finding a way to change your situation.

The worst thing I see on a daily basis is wasted lives. I see so many people with great talents, inquiring minds and amazing skills who have fallen in to the mediocrity pit and have decided to take up residency there. Do not let that be you!

Yes it may take some work on your part and yes, the journey that you embark upon may take you down many different paths and it may take quite some time before you come full circle but the fact is YOU did something, YOU decided enough was enough, YOU went out there and made your best life happen, and YOU are the one who is going to benefit from it. You are discovering your best life now, instead of sitting on the sidelines watching everyone else live a great life and get the things that they want.

Never settle for mediocrity. In fact it really should be against the law. I want you to ban being ordinary in your home. Do not do it yourself and do not encourage your children to be average either. They are better than that, you are better than that and you deserve to be happily, joyously and gratefully basking in the warmth of Your Best Life.
