“There is no passion to be found in settling for a life that is less than the one that you are capable of living.” Nelson Mandela
Life is like a roller coaster, sometimes it creeps up a hill, and then it suddenly drops you. Life is full of twists and turns, loops and spins. Some days life takes you high and on other days life brings you very high lows. Life is filled with many different glitches, and some are often better or worse than others. “The best way to prepare for life is to begin to live.” (Elbert Hubbard)Life is too short to not accomplish your goals and to allow your dreams to die. I challenge you to ponder on the following questions, 1.) What were you created to do? 2.) What obstacles in life do you have to overcome in order to pursue your purpose? 3.) What in life makes you happy, sad and/or angry? 4.) What would you do for free? Life is too short to allow excuses to overshadow the greatness within. Life is truly what you create it to be, and what you put into your life is certainly what you will get out of it. Life will present you with an abundance of challenges and the great thing about it all is that life forces you to discover who you really are, to determine what you really stand for and it empowers you to stand firm in what you are really passionate about. Life helps you to define what your purpose here on earth really is. “Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly.” (Langston Hughes)
“The journey of life is learning about one’s true self, the inside is the true self.” Life is a game and the fact remains that we can all become winners of the prize. In order to be successful in the game of life, God must be the captain of your team. In order to be a winner of the game of life, you must be confident about becoming the champion. Your life is filled with endless possibilities and opportunities are properly positioned with your name on them. God created us to have life abundantly and he does not allow us to place his blessings for us into a box that is limited in size. “Jesus said, “I am the resurrection, and the life, he that believes in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever lives and believes in me shall never die.” (John 11:25-26) Life is a song; therefore it is worth taking the time to learn all of the words, the rhythms, and the beats to it. Life is full of unpredictable opportunities; therefore as a winner you must expect the unexpected. Life is a divine assignment that you must complete. Life can sometimes be a struggle and that is why it is important to know how to war in the spirit against every negative attack that may come near your path. Life is a goal that you must be willing to achieve no matter how hard it gets. Life is a puzzle that takes a lot of time, energy and dedication to solve. Life is a long journey but at the end of the trip, you will reap the benefits of your voyage. Life has no boundaries; therefore your destiny depends upon how much work you are willing to invest and how far you are willing to travel.
