We all want to be relevant. We want to live our lives. We want to do our own things, in our own ways. We want to be treated with respect and dignity. We want to grow. We want to stay important. We want to stay relevant.

How do we stay relevant? How do we keep growing?

To stay relevant in life, you MUST first think, see, and treat yourself in a relevant way. You must first see yourself as an important person. You must treat yourself in a respectful way. If you don’t know who you are, if you don’t know your values, if you don’t know how powerful you are, no one will care.

It is important to stay relevant if we are to enjoy life. The only critical way to stay relevant in life is to keep moving. We need to keep growing. We need to keep moving. We need to keep challenging ourselves, keep questioning our assumptions, keep connecting with others. We need to get out of our comfort zones. We need to keep trying new things.

To stay relevant, Will Rogers said, “Even if you are on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there.” No matter where you are, what you are doing, how you are doing it, don’t be comfortable. Don’t think you have nothing to learn anymore. If you keep that kind of mentality, you will miss lots of opportunities to grow and improve yourself.

Always challenge what you think you know. Open your mind to learn new things, to take new ideas, to question people and yourself. If you don’t bring in new ideas, new ways of doing things into your business, your business will not be around for long. If you don’t keep upgrading yourself, you can’t keep your job for long. If you want your life to be relevant, keep doing relevant things.


Going Downhill

Think outside of the box

It is okay to take a step back in life. It is not okay to stay there. If you find yourself going downhill, what would you do?

When you find yourself going downhill, would you stop or keep going? It is your choice. It will always be your choice. Again, what would you do?

What would you do when your business is losing money, when you are in a bad relationship, when your health is going down, when you are not happy, when nothing seems to be working, when you are in debt? What would you do?

You have two options: keep going or stop and come back.

If you want things to get better for you, the best option is to come back. When you do that, then you will have the chance to find solutions to your problems. But if you keep going, keep nurturing your problem, you will not have the chance to turn things around.

When you find yourself in a terrible situation, don’t wait for the perfect time to fix it. Look up for solutions, not down for solutions. You will find solutions to your issues if you have the courage to look up. If you have the courage to think outside the box. But if you keep looking down, you are not making your situation better. You are making it worse. If you want to find solutions to anything, look up, not down.
