1. One day you will be gone.
Embrace the fact that life is short and unpredictable. Live fully today and give your very best. It is a reminder for you to live your best self in each moment. What if tomorrow you’ll be gone? What will others speak of you? What can you do to leave a lasting, positive memory in the lives of people around you? Be lighthearted, knowing that in the end, none of this stuff matters. The only thing that ever matters is: how you made others feel and how you felt.
2. There is nothing you cannot be, do or have.
If there has been someone that had done it before, this means you can too. It doesn’t mean it will be easy, but it means that it is possible. As long as it is possible, you can work towards it. You can make a plan. Learn what needs to be done for your life.
3. Nothing is worth it, if it doesn’t make you happy.
If it doesn’t make you happy or make you better, it most likely is not worth to make time for it. Almost anything worth fighting for is going to require a real fight to win a great prize. You will have to sacrifice for almost anything worthwhile. But you should ask yourself about everything you do in your life: Does this make me happy in the end? If the answer is no, letting it go is an alternative.
4. Be yourself.
The only way you can live happy is when you be you. You will never be truly happy in life if you are constantly doing things to please others, to compete with others, or to be like others. You are unique and that is your greatest gift. Follow your own path, regardless if that fits in with others. Make your own decisions and it will lead to an abundant life.
5. Everything you need is already within you.
Things and other people will never complete you. There is a saying: Needing nothing attracts everything. When you come from a place of seeking nothing outside yourself to make you happy, you open up space for amazing things to come into your life. Happiness is a state of mind. Do what feels good, the rest will follow.
6. Whatever you focus on, you will find.
If you search for negativity, you will find plenty of it. The same is true on the opposite. If your only intention is to search for the good, you will find only the good. The meaning you give your life becomes your life. Life is against you to make you stronger. There is no such thing as reality. We choose our own reality by the meaning we give each moment in our lives. Make your intention to look for the good in life and in others. Be grateful for everything you have and see challenges as opportunities to show your true character.
Leave who you were, love who you are, and look forward to who you will become.
