Why you should make a difference in life

Make a differenceWhere are you going dear reader? What is it you want to achieve in life? If you’re anything like me you’ll be asking yourself these questions frequently.

However any vision you have for your life should not just involve some notion of what you want to achieve. Well I think so anyway.

In looking to the future, your vision should also include something you would like to leave behind, surely?

I’m talking about your legacy. In other words, what you will leave behind for future generations.

So there’s another question you should be asking yourself and that is, For what do I want to be remembered?

Developing a clear idea of what you want your legacy to be will focus your attention on what you need to do to achieve it. This will involve more than just establishing priorities. It requires you to consider what truly matters to you.

Once you know what really matters to you, then you will know where to focus all of your energies.

If you can connect with your highest values, then this will have a profound effect on your behaviour. That in turn should provide you with the motivation and the drive to pursue your life’s purpose. Your raison d’etre.

However you should also recognise this fact. If your life’s purpose is to be achieved then there will be a price to pay. That’s why you’ll need to be driven.

So, how do you turn your vision into reality?

Like every journey, it starts with the first step. You think about what needs to be done, but not for too long, and then you start doing and you keep going until you get to where you want to be.

Like many people, you may be thinking that you have to have everything ‘just right’ before you can begin to achieve your aims. That’s not so dear reader.

If you wait for everything to be perfect, then it will never happen.

The danger with waiting for everything to be perfect is that you delay and delay and never get any traction on moving things closer to where you want to be.

Your life’s purpose will only become clearer as you experience life, and gradually adjust your direction based on your experiences. Every successful person goes through many experiences before they find that thing that will allow them to truly make a difference.

This is a process of incremental changes that gradually take you in a direction which is most appropriate for you.  And if you’re heading in that direction, you’re almost certainly reinforcing what works for you.

If you just keep moving in the right direction you will achieve your aims. It may take longer than you’d like, it may not be as dramatic as you thought it would be, but you will get there. The key word is perseverance. Keep going until you achieve what you want to achieve.

Achievement is a confidence builder. The more you achieve, the more you believe you can achieve. With confidence and self-belief you can achieve anything you want to achieve.

You’ll find dear reader, if you haven’t already, that achievement changes your experience of being alive.

Not only does it make you feel good about yourself, as a natural consequence it also produces what will become your legacy and that will have made your life a life worth living and a life well-lived.

Your life on earth timeline; what’s it all about?

Life on Earth TimelineDo you ever think about your life on earth timeline dear reader? Have you ever asked the question, what’s it all about?

The timeline to which I refer is our journey from the cradle to the grave. There is no road map for this journey, we learn as we go along and use what we learn to improve our lives as best we can.

Along the road of life’s journey we face an endless stream of choices at various times in our lives.

However fear not the choices you make because every decision you make will be a valid one. Most decisions you make will be based on imperfect information so all you can do is make a judgement as best you and act accordingly.

Inevitably, outcomes won’t always be favourable but that doesn’t mean we’ve made a bad choice. It just means life has a lesson we must learn. That’s the thing about mistakes they are just lessons which over time provide us with that valuable commodity known as experience.

So make decisions to the best of your ability and then, if they don’t work out, just look for the lesson and learn it well. Never let anyone tell you that making mistakes is a bad thing.

Despite anything people will tell you to the contrary, there is nothing wrong with making mistakes because that’s how we gain experience and that’s how we grow in character.

That said, whilst making a mistake is perfectly reasonable, making the same mistake frequently is not.

Make a mistake once and that’s acceptable; make it twice and you’re starting to look a little bit careless. Make it three times and people will start to have serious doubts about you.

So the message today is to accept that you’ll make mistakes but try not to make the same mistakes too often.

15 Quotes by Marcus Aurelius

15 Quotes by Aristotle

Quotes by AristotleDo you have your own personal philosophy dear reader? Do you have a sense of what’s important to you and what isn’t? Do you have a set of values by which you live your life? Perhaps this is something on which you continue to reflect?

That’s fine. However if that is the case, then listening to the words of the great philosophers will help you I believe.

There are many great philosophers of course but one man’s words worthy of your time would be those of Aristotle.

Aristotle was an ancient Greek philosopher and scientist believed to have been born around 384 BC.

I think that the wisdom of the ancients offers us much to develop our own personal philosophy and all those quotes attributed to Aristotle provide much on which we can contemplate and reflect on in relation to our own lives.

Quotes by Aristotle:

  1. Happiness depends upon ourselves. ~Aristotle
