Your life is a project. You are not getting things done because you are not planning your life like a project. It would help if you had a project plan in all your life endeavours. A project is a temporary endeavour undertaken to create a unique product, service, or result. The temporary nature of projects indicates that a project has a definite beginning and end.
You have a birthdate and a death date. Everyone will die one day. You must understand that your presence here on earth is temporary, just like in any project. So, what is life? What does life mean to you? How can you have it all if you don't know what life means to you?
Life is the aspect of existence that processes, acts, reacts, estimates, and evolves through growth, reproduction, and metabolism. The fundamental difference between life and non-life or non-living things is that life uses energy for physical and conscious development. Life is anything that grows and eventually dies, i.e., ceases to proliferate.
Please pause for a moment and answer me. What is the meaning of life to you? If you don't know what life means to you, you will end up living the life of others. What life means to me is not what it means to you. Throughout modern history, one of the questions humans have asked the most is, "What is the meaning of life? We are all eager for meaning, finality and feeling that our lives are worth more than the sum of their parts.
I am not interested in the meaning of life. I am interested in what life means to you. People who believe they know their life's purpose enjoy greater well-being than those who don't. It is not easy to understand what life means to you. You need to research and search for what life means to you. I am not here to answer this question for you. It is your responsibility.
What is your own purpose in life? Purpose can guide life decisions, influence behaviour, shape goals, offer a sense of guidance and give meaning to life. Some people's purpose is connected to vocation—meaningful, satisfying work. For others, their objective lies in their responsibilities toward family and friends. Others seek a sense through spirituality and religious beliefs. Your purpose in life is to find your purpose and give your whole heart and soul. Also, find your wound if you want to find your purpose in life.
Questions that may arise as you think about your purpose include:
• Who am I?
• Where do I belong?
• When do I feel fulfilled?
Your life purpose is your contribution. Some people hesitate to pursue their life purpose because they worry it sounds like a self-serving or selfish quest. However, the true purpose is about recognising your unique gifts and using your gifts to contribute to the world. God made you a solution to the problems of the world. You are a solution architect. To understand your purpose, you need to know the problems you have been assigned to solve. That is the key to your breakthrough. You are the salt of the earth; you are meant to flavour the life of others.
I have given you a clue on how to figure out your purpose. Once you can figure out your passion, you have succeeded in figuring out your purpose. Your passion will lead you right into your purpose. To understand the meaning of life, you must find your gift or gifts. Once you do, nothing can stop you from finding a way to make it happen. Here is when they say you have found purpose. You will become the most powerful person on earth when your life is on course with its purpose.
Gratitude is key to happiness. Expressing gratitude for the things you have and receive makes you happier. Practising gratefulness is the most accessible key to enhancing your satisfaction in your daily life. When you are grateful for the little tiny milestones, it makes you feel more positive and generates extra energy that will motivate you to go all out. You will become fearless. You begin to feel a positive emotion and build stronger relationships. Thus, you will enjoy life.
Are you enjoying life at the moment? How appreciative are you about where you are at the moment or do you complain and lament as you become the author of the book of Lamentation? If you are not appreciative, then what do you need to change? Could it be that you need to change everything? Gratitude is the best medication available for your mental wellness.
With gratitude, your brain is rewired for the better. Gratitude can boost the neurotransmitter serotonin and activate the brain stem to produce dopamine—your brain releases neurochemicals like dopamine, serotonin, and oxytocin, which allow you to experience happiness.
You must start living life on your terms. Living life "on your terms" means you choose your path. You decide what you do, where you go, and whom you become. You stop letting people shape your thoughts, and you start thinking for yourself and making your own choices—all of which lead to freedom, fulfilment, and joy.
Stop seeking the approval of others to live life on your terms. What are the terms on which you want to live life? Living life on your own terms means you're living meaningfully, leading a happy and fulfilling life. It is possible to enjoy a purposeful career that gives you financial freedom and balance. As such, you will create and enjoy quality time with your family.
To have it all in life is to be contented. Be content with what you have. Be present in your life, and you will see that you have it all. Don't be absent. Be present with your mind, body, and soul. Be present right now, this very moment.
Don't wait for that special moment to wear those best clothes you are saving in the closet; that best moment is right now. We all "have it all." It's the wonder of life. There is no comparison between this life and that life because they are all equally impressive and profound. I would not trade places with anybody. Life is not about wealth and achievements; it is more than that.
You can have it all, but not all at the same time. Set your priorities, trust your gut, and follow your heart. It is never too late to be who you might have been. Stop procrastinating. You don't need to have it all figured out to take a step forward. Go for it now.
The future is not promised to any person. If you keep looking at what you have in life, you'll always have more. If you keep looking at what you don't have in life, you'll never have enough. You've got what it takes to have it all, but it will take everything you've got. Believe you can, and you are halfway there.
