If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...
Live your life in such a manner that it makes yesterday jealous. Always seeking, always hungry, always yearning for greatness. Attach a purpose to all that you do, understanding that it is on purpose that you are here. Never take for granted this purpose, by remaining forever grateful.
Love yourself more tomorrow than you did today. Always strive to show yourself more love than you give others, yet never forsaking the importance of paying it forward. This will create around you a circle of love that will grow not only yourself, but also everyone that you encounter. Never underestimate the power in this.
Never give life to the thought that it is ever acceptable to stop learning or to stop teaching. Inside of you is a message of great urgency and importance that needs to be shared with the world. Inside you also lies an innate desire to be taught. We all have something to teach, and even more that we can learn. Each time you encounter someone new on your journey, ask yourself how you can add value to this person’s life, and what can you learn from this person.
Embrace the moments in life when you encounter an adversity so great that it makes you question your own intent. These questions will build your character. Pull into these moments the glories of your past victories to use as strength to answer these questions with a boldness that gives way to greatness.
Find that special place in yourself, where pain and comfort collide, and live in that place. For that is the place where the magic happens, where dreams are made into reality, and where you find out who you really are. It is ingrained in us all at a young age to avoid pain and discomfort . To steer away from that which is hard, trying, or painful. Yet as we grow older we learn through our own personal trials of victory and defeat that it takes these moments of pain and discomfort to truly grow us and shape us into who we are destined to become. Between comfort and pain lies a glorious reality that many never get the joy of experiencing. A reality that says you are more than you have ever given yourself credit for. A reality that says your voice can and will be heard. A reality that says you can and will push past all of your self inflicted limitations and achieve so much more than you have ever believed was possible.
Understand that your legacy is the only gift that you can give others once you are gone. Build a legacy that you would be proud to inherit. Treat it like a special gift that you are able to add value to and enrich daily, waiting for that moment when it’s finally ready to be revealed to the world.
Love with purpose, share with passion, and enjoy the beauty in all you have created, giving thanks for all that was created for you!
