It means living Strength, Tenacity, Resilience, Optimism, Nurturing and Generosity.
SO many people live their lives just surviving and putting up with mediocre. There is a different way for you to live and that is to show up as the best version of yourself and do whatever is possible to make your life an amazing experience.
There is only one person who is responsible for your life and how it turns out and that is you. You have so much more opportunity and ability to create a life you’re truly proud of and happy in then you believe you do. We are taught from a young age to fit in and not to risk too much in our lives for fear of failure. The real failure is to live in a way that you ultimately regret when you get to the twilight of your life. Very few people ever wish they had more money, had spent more time working or wanted less real and meaningful connections when they are lying on their deathbeds.
I lived the first 30 years of my life in the same mindset where I thought that the only possibility was to live an OK life where I would be happy sometimes, sad sometimes and generally mediocre most of the time. We spend so much time in our lives trying to convince other people that we are really happy and that is such a sad situation. The “keeping up with the joneses” syndrome is a crippling way to live. Nobody worthwhile in your life is impressed with the money, cars and houses they are inspired by who you are NOT what you have. If people love you because of what you have then if the “what” disappears so do the people.
One of my favourite quotes is “What other people think of me is none of my business”. I have endeavoured to live following my truth and walking my own path for the past 15 years and am continually evolving this skill as my life goes on. The more I walk this path the happier and more content I am in my life and the more free I feel to actually chase them dreams I have secretly held for decades in my life.
Living THE STRONG LIFE means being able to walk your own path free of the concern of what others think and truly motivated and inspired to be the best version of you possible in all areas of your life and make a difference to those those around you.
The BEST Partner
The BEST Parent
The BEST Friend
The BEST Professional
Generally just the BEST person you can possible be and the amazing fact is that person continually evolves and grows so therefore that journey continues until they day you die if you choose it to.
Go out and live a life that you will be extremely proud of making an impact on the people close to you that will be talked about well after you have left this place. Leave your mark on the world and leave it a better place than you found it by being your best version of you.
This doesn’t have to be a lofty life lived in the spotlight it can just as easily be achieved by being an amazing human day in and day out in your everyday life.
