Action Over Results. Progress Over Perfection.
Life is all about the ups and down. Realize that if you are having ups and downs then you're alive. I think most people forget this. Without pain there isn’t any pleasure. If you have food in your fridge, clothes, a bed to sleep on and a roof over your head then you are richer than 75% of people in the world.
If you have money then you are in the top 8% of people in the world. Now lets transition. Knowing that lets try to be more grateful for everything this week.
Let's try to not celebrate our highs and lows with food that will temporarily gets us high and bring us pleasure. Let's focus on the the things that really matter in life which are family, love, giving back, self sacrifice, and treating others like we want to be treated.
Actions over results. Progress over perfection.
Marcus Aurelius once said, "It's not death that we should fear, we should fear never beginning to live." When we die, a lifeline does this when we're alive a lifeline does this notice how that connects with our real experience of life. Life is full of ups and downs it means you're alive... twists and turns, love and loss, happiness and sadness, success and failure.
We experience extreme highs, peaks, and summits and at the same time experience the troughs and lows and submit. Life is kind of like one big crazy roller coaster it starts slowly, fills you with
anticipation and curiosity takes you up and then sends you flying down only to rise up quickly again.
We laugh until it hurts, we cry inside a little, experience a few moments where we wanted to stop and hope it's all over but it just keeps going.
