What is the meaning of life? Have you ever pondered that question before? I’m sure you as well as many others has.
While I don’t know everything, I can share what I believe is the meaning of life. Now, this may not be the meaning of life for everyone, but can suffice for some. If you have a different opinion on the meaning of life, I welcome your comments below.
The true meaning of life can be summed up by one thing…….Growth. It’s the one thing we’ve done sense we were conceived at birth. We start off as an Embryo and grow into a Fetus, etc, etc. Drawing from this perspective it’s easy to see how one might draw a conclusion that we have only one purpose and that’s to grow.
But humans stop growing when they reach maturity right? Not exactly. See, people may physically stop growing, but what about their brains? What about our mental capabilities?
Sure, some people seem to never grow up and always look like the childish adult who doesn’t know when to be serious. I’m sure you know at least one person like that.
Some people end up going to college and become Philosophers, Astronomers, Physicist, Scientist, Doctors, and even Historians. Others choose to take the other route and let their creativity flow, these people become our artist: Painters, Musicians, Sculptures, Engineers, and Fashion Designers.
What does this do for us? It gives room for growth. It allows our minds to open and expand inward. Without growth, we wouldn’t be who we are today. Without growth, mankind would not be what it has become today.
Through growth, we can strive to be a better person. Through growth, we can make changes, starting from within. Through growth, inspiration lives.
Many people are without jobs right now, myself included, but that’s not keeping me from trying to learn and grow. That’s not stopping me from building my dream. That’s not stopping me from creating my own reality.
Go for the gold. Grow, Learn, Inspire.
I was having a chat with someone recently about doing things in life and changing it up. It was brought to my attention that they were making excuses for themselves. What excuse? They didn’t want to get fit or healthy because they didn’t think their husband deserved it.
I know what you’re thinking. Really? Yes, really. All too often we make excuses that we’re not even aware of. Sometimes we’re aware of them, but most of the time we’ve told ourselves that often enough, that we’re not aware of them.
Why is this an issue? Why wouldn’t it be? We’re on this planet for one thing and one thing only. Ok, maybe a few things. For example: we’re here to be healthy, learn and grow, and experience all that we can. So, why is it that we’re holding ourselves back?
I think that a large part if it is negativity. Negativity is what holds us back. Even if we have plans, (big plans) we’ll could still have some negative thought holding us back. As Randy Gage puts it, you have to get rid of the negative thoughts and replace them with good thoughts. Only when the Positive outweighs the negative, can we then move forward.
Randy Gage on Youtube. Highly recommended.
One thing we have to realize, is that we’re hear for ourselves. No one else. We don’t have to please anyone. If we want to be healthy, it should be for our own reasons. To live longer, live happier, regardless if someone deserves it or not. We deserve it for ourselves.
Before you go bashing yourself with negativity, remember this, “It’s for me, no one else.” What are some other excuses that you’ve caught yourself giving? What are some tips that people can use to become positive thinkers?
