Do This One Thing That Counts Every Day

Are you enjoying what you have? Are you listening to the voice of your heart? If you are not, why are you not doing it? Are you scared? If you are scared, why?

“The purpose of life is living. Men and women should get the most they can out of their lives.”- Clarence Darrow

If you want to be successful, you must listen to your own heart. You must follow your heart. Do not go with the crowd. Yes, new things are scary. If you can do them, you will grow.

Wilheim Reich said, “Follow the voice of your heart, even if it leads off the path of timid souls. Do not become hard and embittered, even if life tortures you at times. There is only one thing that counts: to live one’s life well and happily…” It is never too late to live your life on your own terms.

“It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.”- Charles Spurgeon

Even if life is not giving you what you want, do what Friedrich Schiller said. He said, “Keep true to the dreams of thy youth.” This is why you shouldn’t follow the crowd. There is nothing there. If you follow the crowd, you are not going to be happy with yourself.

Whether you know what is going to happen or not, whether it will work or not, it is better to follow your heart, your dreams, your passion. Listen to what your soul is telling you. Do not ignore your soul. Your soul is your partner. If you want to succeed in life, listen to your trusted partner- your soul.

And to satisfy your soul, you must not follow the crowd. You must follow your own path. You must dream your own dreams. Remember, everything starts with a dream. If you want to make your soul happy, you must dream your own dreams. Henry J. Kaiser said, “I always have to dream up against the stars. If I don’t dream I will make it, I won’t even get close.” He knows that everything starts with a dream.

Remember, it is not enough to have a dream. If you want your dream to come true, you must have a plan. And you must be willing and ready to put your plan to work. Are you willing to put your plan to work?

You Are Worth It

Dr. Phillip C. McGraw says, “You don’t have to just mindlessly go along with this life chain you have both inherited and passively contributed to. You can begin to shape its links, actively and consciously. You need the tools, you need guidance on where to start- and what to do, but with a little help, you can do it. You are worth it, and you can do it.”

If you have been telling yourself false stories, it is time to stop it. You have your life to live, to enjoy. Do not limit yourself. If you have been doing it, do not do it again. Live your life. Give yourself permission to live your life, to love yourself, and to be comfortable with your life.

Spend quality time with yourself. Let life shine through you. And to do that, you must know you. According to Dr. Phillip C. McGraw, “You can’t be you if you don’t know you.” To do well in your life, you must know you. You must know who you are. You must know what you want. And you must know how to get there. You must be comfortable with yourself, with your life, and with whatever you are doing. Because you are here to live your life- fully.
