Your Choice: To LIVE or to merely EXIST

We need to begin to see beyond our eyes. We need to begin to employ our sixth sense in life, because there is a big difference between ‘living’ and ‘merely existing’.

Here are a few stuffs we advise you to consider which will definitely set you apart from merely existing to living life just the way we should.

Educate yourself until the day you die. – The
time and energy you invest in your education will
change your life. You are a product of what you
know. The more knowledge you acquire, the more
control you have over your life.

Take good care of your body. – Your body is the
greatest tool you’ll ever own. It impacts every step
you take and every move you make. Nourish it,
exercise it, and rest it.

Spend as much time as possible with the
people you love.
– Human beings are emotional
creatures. Family and close friends makeup the core
of your emotional support system. The more you
nurture them, the more they will nurture you.

Be a part of something you believe in. – This
could be anything. Some people take an active role
in their local city council, some find refuge in
religious faith, some join social clubs supporting
causes they believe in, and others find passion in
their careers. In each case the psychological
outcome is the same. They engage themselves in
something they strongly believe in. This
engagement brings happiness and meaning into
their lives.

Excel at what you do. – There’s no point in doing
something if you aren’t going to do it right. Excel at
your work and excel at your hobbies. Develop a
reputation for yourself, a reputation for consistent
excellence.

Live below your means. – Live a comfortable life,
not a wasteful one. Do not spend to impress others.
Do not live life trying to fool yourself into thinking
wealth is measured in material objects. Manage
your money wisely so your money does not manage
you. Always live well below your means.

Be self-sufficient. – Freedom is the greatest gift.
Self-sufficiency is the greatest freedom.
Build a comfortable, loving household. – Home is
where the heart is. Your home should be
comfortable and lined with love. It should be a place
that brings the whole family together.

Always be honest with yourself and others.
Living a life of honesty creates peace of mind, and
peace of mind is priceless.

Respect elders. Respect minors. Respect
everyone.
– There are no boundaries or classes that
define a group of people that deserve to be
respected. Treat everyone with the same level of
respect you would give to your grandfather and the
same level of patience you would have with your
baby brother.

Mix it up. Try different things. – Seek as many
new life experiences as possible and be sure to share
them with the people you love. After all, your life’s
story is simply a string of experiences. The more
experiences you have, the more interesting your
story gets.

Take full ownership of your actions. – Either you
own up to your actions or your actions will ultimately
own you.

Over-deliver on all your promises. – Some people
habitually make promises they are just barely able to
fulfill. They promise perfection and deliver
mediocrity. If you want to boost your personal
value, do the exact opposite. Slightly under-sell your
capabilities so that you’re always able to over-
deliver. It will seem to others like you’re habitually
going above and beyond the call of duty.

Listen more. Talk less. – The more you listen and
the less you talk, the more you will learn and the less
you will miss.

Exploit the resources you do have access to.
The average person is usually astonished when they
see a physically handicap person show intense signs
of emotional happiness. How could someone in such
a restricted physical state be so happy? The answer
rests in how they use the resources they do have.
Stevie Wonder couldn’t see, so he exploited his
sense of hearing into a passion for music, and he
now has 25 Grammy Awards to prove it.

Reflect on your goals and direction. – Not doing
so is committing to wasteful misdirection. The
process of self reflection helps maintain a conscious
awareness of where you’ve been and where you
intend to go, giving you the ability to realign your
trajectory when necessary.

Be here now. – Right now is the only moment
guaranteed to you. Right now is life. Don’t just exist in it, LIVE it!
