Have you thought about that lately? It’s an important question because when you can figure out the answer, you can do more of what’s working and less of what’s not!
What feeds my love of life is knowing that what I do matters. That who I am matters and that how I show up in the world matters.
Following a lifetime of hardwired thinking that what I did had no effect of the rest of the world, I have now immersed myself in the world of personal growth. It has changed everything for me and now I teach personal development to others so that it can have similar benefits and rewards for them.
Personally, I feed my love of live by:
1) Working harder on myself than on anything else. When I stop blaming others and look within, the answers always appear. Always. I continuously read, listen to audios, attend sessions and fuel myself with positive ideas and then act on the ones that fit for me.
2) Finding inspiration everywhere. It is at the grocery store, in the eyes of the elderly, in the skip of a child, it is everywhere – we just have to tune in and look to find it. Let the inspiration wash over you and motivate you continuously. If you don’t look closely and purposefully it’s very easy to miss it.
3) Take action. Reading, listening, watching – it’s not enough, it’s the getting out there, trying, failing, embarrassing, crying, fearing, frustrating myself – all those things that add up to eventually feeding my love of life. Learning to push past obstacles is exhilarating. Knowing that no matter what is coming down the pipeline, I can handle it.
4) Grow your group. My circle of friends and people of influence are continually growing and changing as I grow and change. Being open to new relationships and adventures with people who are not exactly like me, adds a new element to life that makes it fun and exciting!
5) Knowing that by growing myself I am helping other people, making my relationships stronger and helping to make the world a better place ultimately is the pinnacle of feeding my love of life.
I have seen the lows and experienced the highs and life is so much better when nurturing your love of life. I will never go back!
