Life Happens

This lesson can be a harsh one. Reality is, until you take responsibility for the choices you make (thoughts, actions,words) you are playing the victim.

Life happens to everyone. Tragedy happens to everyone. There are bad people who do bad things to us.

How you CHOOSE to deal with life, in all its messiness, determines what kind of life you lead.

Your happiness is a choice. Your happiness and success isn’t going to look the same as someone else. Not everyone is meant to be the star, the athlete, the famous… whatever. That doesn’t mean you don’t have a good life, a purposeful life.

Live your life with purpose and meaning. Take responsibility for your mistakes and use the lessons to improve yourself.

Don’t compare yourself or your life to anyone else. Yes, they may have more than you… they may also have more pain, more trials, more responsibility.

Never judge your insides against another person’s outsides. You don’t know their whole story. Their life is not meant for you.

Be your best YOU. Be responsible for YOUR actions. Go after what you want. Remember while you do, all actions and choices have consequences, don’t be shocked when the consequences come knocking on your door.
