Arrive Alive

b2ap3_thumbnail_00386362_20130808-163847_1How are things for you these days?  I’m serious!  How are things really going for you?  While you might presume I’m asking those questions of you rhetorically, you absolutely have to answer them for yourself.  Your answers will give you clues as to what you have to do moving forward in your life.

Frankly, if you feel very good about how things are going for you, maybe this blog post has little value to you.  On the other hand, it might serve as reinforcement to you so you can keep on the straight and narrow toward your goals in life.

It’s those folks out there who are struggling with their answers to those questions that I’m focused on in this post.  A life led too long with things not going well for you is a life headed for the wasteland of disappointment.  Don’t dwell on your misery…focus on creating a victory.  It takes commitment but you can do it.

The most important thing a person can do to get their life back on track is to define who they really are.  That definition has to include aspects of spirituality, family, friends, work-life and physical health.  Create a written picture of your values in those various areas of your life.  Internalize the values into your very core.

With your core values deeply embedded, the rest of your effort to get and stay on track is simple.  Around those values develop plans that will allow you to live up to each one of them.  Act on those plans.  Review and repeat the entire process at least annually.  Doing so will make you feel like you are very much alive and well.

After all, the last thing you want to feel when you die is that you have already been dead most of your life.  The lives filled with the greatest peace of mind “arrive alive,” so to speak, at death.
