You cannot be All You Can be Without Doing All That You Can

b2ap3_thumbnail_00398791_20140430-161742_1You and everyone around you are scrambling just to survive.  It is what it is so the only question is what you are going to do about it.  This brings me to a well-worn but impactful and still valid thought…“If it is to be it is up to me.”

A good and fulfilling life is never promised to you or any of us.  It doesn’t just happen!  The work of living well can be compared to the task of digging a well for the precious and sustaining thing we call water.  If you’re out in the middle of no man’s land, the only way to find water is to dig for it.  And, so it is with your life.  The only way to a good and fulfilling life is to dig for it.

You and only you can do all that you can to achieve all you want to be, do or have.  Yes, people will help you along the way probably but they won’t be able to do it all for you because they have to dig the same well as you.  So, it’s up to you and the question then becomes, how?

Here are some thoughts:

  1. You have to begin by finding those things for which you have a passionate interest.
  2. Don’t compromise on point 1 or you will not do all that you can because there will be little or no emotional commitment.
  3. Build detailed plans to realize each of your passions.
  4. Act on those plans.
  5. Find new passions and repeat the whole process throughout your life.

All that you can do is all that you can and the above five steps are exactly how you can.
