You’ve probably heard this, or maybe you will relate to this personally. Have you ever arrived somewhere and wondered, “How did I get here?” or “Why am I here?”
Have you ever wondered if you’ve missed boat (with your family on it)?
Life is a battle that must be fought if there is to be a favorable outcome for you, as well as those around you that count most. But often, we are fighting battles that don’t lead to a desirable outcome, a dream or an ambition realized.
They are reactive wars that are based on barely surviving.
Do you want to just survive or thrive?
For me, thriving offers an alternative way of living that brings abundant outcomes.
Let’s face it. We all have a basic survival instinct and so it doesn’t matter how tough life gets… as humans we survive. Like many people, I used to save my head off and forgo life’s “material pleasures” which by way - have no substance.
I’m talking about nice cars, houses, televisions, furniture… it’s all based on fake reality.
Anyway, we struggled and battled and fought to save money so we could get ahead a bit faster. Get ahead to where?
That was question that I started to ask myself. “What does it all mean? Who cares if I have all these “nice things” to play with? Surely that’s not what life is supposed to be about?” The endless fight that we were fighting was not bringing us real stuff that counted.
