Take off is just the beginning

Your life is just beginning. You have one chance at this. Life is a gift and your time on earth is limited and only you can decide how you want to use it. I know that I’m not the first person to tell you this, but I want you to hear it from me first. Your life is just beginning, and now’s the time to start living it! You can’t miss it. So don’t mess it!

Your path through life as you let your imagination take flight.

The path you take in life is yours. You can choose to go down the road of destruction, or you can follow the road of opportunity and thrive. The choice is yours, but there are some paths that are less traveled, so to speak. They may be less safe, but they could lead to greater rewards. One such path is your imagination. It is a powerful tool that can help you overcome obstacles and achieve goals in life.
We are all one life, and we can only live one life. We go through phases, move from point A to point B, and learn so much along the way. Even though you may have a goal or dream in mind, don’t forget that there are many paths to follow when it comes to living your dreams. You might end up on a different path than you originally planned, but that doesn’t mean you won’t get there eventually!

It’s important that you stay positive, even when things don’t go as planned. Don’t let negative people get under your skin or drag you down into their negative beliefs. If someone is telling negative things about themselves or others, try to find another way of looking at it rather than getting involved in their problems. The world is filled with enough negativity already. It’s better to focus on your own life and goals rather than somebody else’s problems — which is ultimately what will make you happier later on in life.
Don’t worry about other people too much, do the much or the little you can for them and leave them in the hand of God — focus on yourself and what makes you happy!

When I was a kid, my parents told me that I had to learn to deal with failure. As they were telling me this they will scold me and tell me stories of how they went through life.
I took it as a warning. My strategy for dealing with failure was to avoid it by thinking about anything else. If the thought of failure entered my mind (if I even allowed myself to be aware of it) then I would try to distract myself with other thoughts like success, happiness, and wealth.
This worked for me for most of my life until recently when I realized that all these other thoughts are just distractions from the truth about who we really are as human beings: we are all going to fail sometimes, or at least have setbacks in our lives. The trick is not to let these setbacks get the best of us but instead learn from them so we can move on and succeed next time.

A life without all the stuff.

You could live without a lot of stuff, but you’d still have your mind, heart, and soul. You’d be happier and more fulfilled. You’d have time to be there for people and enjoy being around them. You’d have the energy to do the things you really love. You’d have money in your pocket so that you could travel or buy something special for yourself. Moments that you spend with your loved ones, the things that you do to feel alive, the simple things in life that make it worth living. You’d be able to pay off your debts and start investing for retirement and many more. This is a scratch on the surface of what a life free of clutter would mean for you!

“One life? What’s the point?”

Well, it’s true that we have only one life to live. But with all the time in the world, you would think that people would start living their lives with purpose and passion. But they don’t. They just go through the motions of getting through each day. They don’t even know why they’re alive anymore. They’re just existing, going through the motions without any real reason for being alive at all.

“The greatest tragedy in life is to live a life without a purpose” —Dr. Myles Munroe.

Isn’t there something more important than just getting through each day?

Life is too short to be spent rushing through it. I agree; we often don’t experience all that life has to offer because we are constantly busy doing stuff—things we don’t necessarily enjoy, but think we have to get done in order for things around us (our home, our family) to remain on track.

Life should not be defined by stuff. It revolves around people, places, and experiences. Instead of thinking about things as “stuff,” I think about how each one can be an opportunity—an opportunity to do something differently, go somewhere new and exciting for the first time or live life more fully than most people.

One day at my study, I saw this quote on my phone: “Life is short. If you don’t like it, change it.” It made me stop and think: Is this really true? Can we change our lives if we want? If we can, how do we do it?
It’s not easy. It requires an immense amount of willpower and determination. But there is a way to live your life in such a way that it will bring happiness and joy into your life.
The secret is to live a life of lightness, joy, and freedom while being aware of your smallness as a human being on this planet (humility). If I had to choose between two lives, one light and one heavy, I would prefer the light one every time. It is freedom from fear and from grief. It is the life of joy. It’s not easy to make a choice like that when you’re young.

But the question must be asked, for it will come up again in our lives.
Life is not a race, it’s a journey with no finish line. The only reason we are here is to learn and grow, to love and laugh, to create and create again. The journey is more important than the destination in life, so enjoy the ride!
Life is a gift that can be taken away at any moment, so live every day as if it was your last one. We may never know what tomorrow brings but today is yours for the taking!

When you are young, you think about how to change your life. You want to be rich. You want to be famous. You want to be happy. But as you get older and life becomes more complicated, you realize that it’s not so easy to change your life. There are so many factors involved!

It’s not just about money, fame, or happiness; it’s about everything that makes up your life. Your family, your relationships with friends, your job and career — everything is connected and interdependent with one another.

When we were kids we had no idea what a complex world it was going to be for us when we grow up. But I think we know that the world was changing. It happened faster than people can keep up with. And it’s hard to not feel like you’re being left behind. But there’s a reason why we’re all here: We want to make a difference. We want to make our mark on the world. The problem is, we don’t know how! We don’t know what needs doing; we don’t know how to do it, and we don’t even have a good idea of where to start. So we never thought much about changing our lives when we were younger because we didn’t know what was possible!

We were so busy being kids that we didn’t realize that there would be a time in our lives when we would want to make a change. We thought that once you get married and have kids you don’t have much freedom anymore. We didn’t think about how we could better ourselves and start something new. But then one day we realized that there was something else: we could become something else! We could do something different. We knew that it would be hard work, but we also knew that if it was worth doing then it was worth the effort.

I’m not saying it’s easy to make a change, but it isn’t as hard as you think either. Sure, it may take some work and dedication, but if you want something bad enough, then it will happen eventually!

One life to live, then let it go: A poem.

“One life to live, then let it go.

One life to live, then let it go.

It’s the only one you get and it’s not enough.

One life to live, then let it go.

I will do my best to live a life that is all about the now not the someday.

One life to live, then let it go.

I will not let other people’s opinions of me either limit or define me.

One life to live, then let it go.

I will make certain that no matter what happens, I will always be true to myself.

One life to live, then live it right.

I will not waste a single day waiting for something better than what is right in front of me right now.

One life to live, then live it right.

I will work hard and play hard, and never forget how graced I am to have been given these opportunities.

One life to live, then live it right.

I will refuse to let anyone define who I am.

One life to live, so I live it well”———– Joseph Bayode.

You are the accumulation of your experiences. You can’t change your past, but you can control how you will react to it. You can make decisions that will affect your life now and in the future. You have no option but to make such choices.
The only way to get out of a horrible situation is to go through it. If you don’t feel like trying anything new today, chances are you won’t feel any better tomorrow.

It takes courage to trust yourself and take care of yourself.
Self-reliance is not selfishness–it’s the opposite of it!
