What does life mean to you?


What does life mean to you? Do you ever feel that you’re constantly living on a treadmill of other people’s expectations? Do you worry about what other people think about you? If you do, you’re not alone.

So many people waste their time worrying about what others think of them. If only they realised that other people spend little or no time thinking about them at all.

Most people are too busy trying to deal with their own lives. They don’t have the time to think much about anyone else’s life.

So it’s fine to be yourself and to lead your life on your own terms. Your approach to life is just as valid as the next person’s and, as long as you’re not hurting anyone else, you’re free to choose how you live.

Don’t try to be something you’re not? You can only be the person you are. So accept yourself for who you are; you’re a true original.

Remind yourself frequently that you’re better than you think you are and that you’re as good as anyone.

Constantly reinforce your self-belief. If you haven’t got much self-belief right now then fake it until it happens naturally. And that will come with the little successes you’ll achieve over time.

Never consciously try to impress anyone else. It doesn’t get you any place worth going. Just do what comes naturally to you.

You’re only going to have this one life, so live it on your own terms. Enjoy your life for what it is and make the most of it.

However never let life just happen to you; decide on the life you want and then make it happen. It’s important to know what you want and you should never give up until you get it.

Always be yourself. However make that the best version of yourself.

And remember this; an original is always more impressive than a copy. So don’t copy other people. Just be an original.

And remember this too; life begins once you’ve stepped outside of your comfort zone. That’s where the real challenges are and that’s where you will grow. And you must never stop growing.

So step outside your comfort zone; look those challenges in the eye and just give them a wink. You’re more than a match for them all. They should be quaking in their boots.

Go on, live life! Now! It’s later than you think.
