Recently, I have been reminded how fragile life is. That is why it’s important that we don’t take anything for granted and that we appreciate every second we have here on earth.
Unfortunately, many allow the little things in life to affect them in a negative way. There is no doubt that we will go through stresses in life but when we really reflect on most of these challenges, in the big scheme of things, they are really not a big deal. Let me encourage you going forward to not allow the small things to bring you down. You are way more valuable than that.
Sadly, I see many people and family members that will hold grudges against someone for so long that they actually forget why they are holding that grudge in the first place. Do you have someone that you need to forgive? Have you been holding something against someone for so long that it’s affecting your mental state? Today is the day to let that go. I’ve heard that holding a grudge or not forgiving someone is like drinking poison and hoping the other person gets sick.
On the other hand, do you need to reach out to someone that you may have wronged to ask for forgiveness? Now is the time to put the pride aside and reach out to that person and ask them to forgive you. You will find that this is just as much for your benefit as it is for the other person.
I also think about our journey of success. Time goes by fast and if you don’t take action, you will end up just being a spectator rather than a participant. How about your success journey… Are you giving it all you’ve got? Are you reaching your full potential? You are designed for success and you’re created to have a life of abundance. It’s not just going to come to you, you have to go out there and make it happen. If you haven’t been doing that, today is a great day to start. Make the rest of your life the best of your life.
People often talk about making sacrifices to become successful. There is no doubt about it that you have to work hard. It’s going to require a lot of discipline, consistency, and persistence. No matter what happens, you must never give up. I also want to stress to you the importance of enjoying your journey. Celebrate your success and enjoy the ride, it’s incredible.
The time we have here on earth is extremely short and every day is a gift; make sure you are doing your best to make a difference. Be a blessing to others and make a commitment to be a giver.
The happiest people on earth are the ones who help and give to others. Remember, life is a gift. Enjoy every second.
Have a fantastic week!
