the greatest enemies of human potential."
- Brian Tracy
Trying to be right all the time is a disease. To think is easy. To act is hard.
The masks we wear. The stories we tell ourselves. The labels we hide behind deter us from living our most authentic and purposeful life.
If you want to change your behavior, seek to alter your environment.
The best gift you can give someone is an opportunity. When you choose to see the virtue in others, you end up finding the good in yourself. Be driven to serve the underserved. At some point in your life, you will realize it is no longer about you. It is about everybody else.
We must view every second, day, week, month and year as a new becoming. When you get to the latter years of your life, you begin to understand the true essence of time. Twelve months is such an extraordinary gift of unique opportunity to be given. At eighty-one to be given the gift of another day the question becomes what am I doing to show my overt appreciation for being alive. The way you show explicit recognition is by serving other people's needs.
Remember, age is really mathematics. It is just arithmetic. Are you merely existing or living fully and productively while optimizing your days? No matter your age we each have twenty-four hours each day to engage in work that matters. We must live immediately and not squander the remaining moments we have left!
