Because This Is Your Life

You may have heard the saying that there are 3 guarantees in this world…Life, death, and taxes.

Now there are some people out there who may question the truth to that and say there aren’t any guarantees in life.

Today I’ll be sharing with you the one absolute guarantee that is in everyone’s life…

What I am referring to is that everyone has a journey. No matter how you look at it, your life is a journey.

The question is:

“How far have you come on your journey?”

One of the ways that you can know is to see how much change and transformation has occurred during the course of your life.

Along with this is embracing that change and transformation.

Many times people are afraid of change whether they admit it or not.

When you hear people say things like, “I wish it was like it was before” or “Those were the good old days and I miss those good old days” and other similar phrases, these are signs of fearing change. It is also a sign of having a fear of the future.

There’s nothing wrong in looking back at what has gone on in your past. The important thing to keep in mind is to be grateful for what has taken place and use that to move forward.

Here’s something else to keep in mind as it relates to your journey…

Your journey never ends and will always consist of experiencing both sides.

Many people feel that their journey only consists of what happens during their lifetime but the fact is that it continues even after you pass on.

This is what having a legacy is all about.

In actuality your legacy is involved in your journey and occurs both during and after your “physical” lifetime.

So when you look at how far you’ve come on your journey, be sure to take what occurs in your lifetime into consideration, along with how you want to be remembered.

People like Albert Einstein, Michael Jackson, Steve Jobs, and every other human being that has passed on are still on their journeys.

Even though your journey never ends, you can still evolve and grow further. So whether you are alive or have passed on, you can still realize how far you have come on your journey.

The other important factor involved in how far you have come on your journey has to do with your ability to embrace both sides.

We live in a two sided world. There’s peace and war, building and destroying, happy and sad, giving and taking, and all the other thousands of equal pairs of opposites.

The best way to have the most fulfilling journey possible is to understand that you’ll experience both sides equally during the course of your life.

The people who live the most fulfilling lives and enjoy their journeys most are the ones who embrace and are grateful for this duality in life.

These are also the people who realize the magnificence, brilliance, and genius of who they are.

Well the same is true for you.

Take the time to look at your journey and all that you’ve done, how far you’ve come, and how you can evolve and grow further from this point on.

This is worth doing because you’ll see how much you do matter in this world. You’ll see how you have served others and the world with all that you do.

As you bring this into your awareness and realize it, others will see it in you and you’ll be acknowledged for how amazing of a person you have become.
