If you really sit down and think about it, the most valuable commodity that we as humans really have is time.
Let's take a step back and really think about this though, how many seconds, minutes and hours do we just throw away not doing what it is that gets us to where we want to be - goals, ambitions, aspirations etc. It never really hit me as to how much time I have wasted until I sat down and reevaluated where I am at my current stage of my life.
I recently started to write down small goals of things that I wanted to accomplish for that week, month & heck, even 10 years from now. If you are reading up to this part, then really just think about what I just said. Writing down your goals isn't only getting you to accomplish your wants/needs/desires but you are 100% living and getting you closer to your dreams. You and I have both heard of the saying "Knowledge is power" right? I mean, knowledge can mean a lot of things in life: Going to college and getting a degree, personal development - the list can go on and on. But when we take a step back and think about us as beings, we are nothing but souls trapped in bodies all formed by thousands of atoms.
I have to ask you, when was the last time you actually lived your life? When was the last time you spent the day bettering yourself? When was the last time you expanded your knowledge on a subject you weren't comfortable with? When was the last time you explored something that completely put you out of your comfort zone? I recently watched a speech online and 1 thing the speaker mentioned that really resonated with me was this:
"When you're born, that the date on the left side of your tombstone. When you die, that's the date they put on the right side of your tombstone. But that dash in the middle, that's the most important thing on that tombstone. That is a line that throughout that time frame, you were able to impact and touch people lives."
WE have to LIVE for that dash.
As far as talking about our reasoning's behind why we are here on this Earth, it'll differ for everyone.
"We are born to die"
"We are born to make an impact on others lives"
"We are just here to live"
"Life is hard"
Out of the four I commonly hear, the last one is hands down my favorite. "Life is hard" Wake up, life is really fucking hard. The main difference that separates all 7.46 billion of us human beings on Earth from one another is the way we handle the hard parts in our lives. The environment that we put ourselves in.
Realize this, Martin Luther King Jr's "I Have A Dream" speech was one of the most iconic/moving speeches in American history NOT because of who he was or what he was saying. It was because WHY he did it that truly resonated with people. Americans from all over left their homes to witness this speech because of 1 reason: They all believed in his WHY.
I suggest you write down you WHY and figure out the purpose of your life. If it doesn't impact you while writing it down, it's not your WHY.
Stay High on Life
