“If you want to live a happy life tie it to a goal, not to other people or objects”–Albert Einstein
What is next level living? Is it only for people lucky enough to be what the world defines as super successful? You know the ones I am talking about..the celebrities, the powerful, the rich. The people that “turned up” or are living “life to the fullest” or whatever pithy phrase we say. Myself included. Lots of those people look like they are engaging in next level living and I am sure many are. After all you don’t get to a certain level of fame or fortune without always growing and reaching. But I happen to know that you are also surrounded by many people that are always in search of the next level of success. Be it in the professional or personal life. You might be one of those people!
It’s the action, not the fruit of the action, that’s important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there will be any fruit. But that doesn’t mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result.
– Mahatma Gandhi
A quick moment about the SWAG picture attached to this post…I just love it. It’s a cute version of “yeah, I know what the world says…and I don’t give a flip. Get over it. I am me and I rock.” I LOVE this picture. Could be because I am little chubby and I got SWAG like crazy…at least some days. Working on swag on all my days!
We come into this world with our very unique DNA. It’s like a 1 in 4 trillion chance that each of us is…..well, us. Did you know that? Think about that. There are only 7 billion people alive in the world. So if its 1 in 4 trillion that you are even you, as you are right at the moment of conception, do you think you might have some unique ideas? About how to make something better? How to do or create a new type of career? Or how to problem solve from a unique perspective? Yes, YOU have the power. Those thoughts or ideas that you have dismissed as “not doable”…well, guess what..you are wrong. If you have the power to conceive it then you have the power to ACHIEVE it.
