What is important to you in life? Is it being famous, owning a big house and a fancy new car, or maybe having a large family? Are there specific goals you would like to achieve such as writing a book, earning a college degree, owning a successful business, weighing a certain amount, etc.? Many of us have met our goals. Are you satisfied, or are you ready to tackle another one? Some of us create bucket lists of things that we feel the need to do before the end of life. People are jumping out of airplanes, surfing 10-foot waves, skiing from the highest mountaintops, etc. Do these things satisfy the ego or the spirit? The #1 goal on everyone’s list should be self-improvement, because then everything else will fall into place. I can honestly say there is nothing more fulfilling and gratifying in life than improving yourself mentally and spiritually and helping others do the same. You will have such a peace within and clearly understand that the things in life you didn’t accomplish won’t really matter.
Are you a person that is willing to accept new ideas and try different things or are you closed-minded, set in your ways, and resist change? It’s good to have strong views about a specific topic, but it is also good to be balanced and listen to other people’s opinions. You just might learn something new and better. When you adjust your perspective, and try new things, your life will be more fulfilling. How do you know for sure whether or not you like something if you don’t try it? You are missing out on so much in life when you stay in the same old routine. It’s time to come out of your comfort zone and take that step of faith.
