“… life is meaningless unless you bring meaning to it; … it is up to us to create our own existence. Unless you do something, unless you make something it’s as though you aren’t there.”- Alan Alda
If you are not doing something meaningful with your life, if you are not pursuing your purpose, you are just existing.
Do not go through life. If you want to make a difference, if you want to change your life, you must grow through life. You must learn to use your time wisely. You must learn to say no to the things that are taking your time away.
Do not do things that are not taking you closer to where you are going. So if you really want to grow, if you want your life to make sense, you must take your own life into your own hands. It is yours to live. Why are you playing with it? Take it seriously.
If you are not doing things that matter to you, to your life, you are just wasting your precious life. You can’t build yourself by doing things that don’t matter. You can’t get to where you want to be by doing things that are not going to get you there.
If you want to be successful in your life, you must “start something that means a lot to you.” If what you are doing right now doesn’t mean a lot to you, you are just wasting your time. Don’t waste your own time. It is your time. Don’t waste it on things that don’t mean a lot to you, to your dreams. Suzy Kassem writes, “Start something that means a lot to you.” If you want to grow your life, if you want your boss to keep you, if you want your boss to promote you, if you want to start your own business, you must start something that means a lot to you. Without it, you are not going anywhere. Without doing something that matters, you are not going to reach your final destination (if there is one).
