“The real value in life, the important value in life, doesn’t come from what we get. It comes from what we become.” -Jim Rohn
It is important what we become as humans, because what we can give, and how much we can give, is directly correlated to what we choose to become. Our value is tied to our contributions to others.
This being said, it becomes important for us to find the most effective ways for us to become the best version of ourselves, and to ALWAYS BE UPGRADING. By doing this we add value not only to our own lives but to those lives of the people around us that we care about. Adding value to ourselves raises our standard of living and the value we provide others in our relationships at home, church, groups, and work. Upgrading the SELF optimizes and improves our life experiences, exponentially.
What we put out into the Universe comes back to us. What we emit and transmit outward returns to us.
When we upgrade and become more valuable through upgrading our contributions, it inspires others to do the same!
Think of the value the people around you add to your life in your personal relationships and at work. We sometimes spend more time with the people at work than we do our own personal circle of people we actually want to spend time with! So, how important is it to create a value-added environment at work, allowing and inspiring others to add value as we try to do the same? Many of us bring the feelings and energy from work home with us. Why not bring home beneficial, peaceful, compassionate, kind, empowering energies?
Actually trying, and caring enough to try, is the first step. Actually having the desire to become a better version of our self is so much better than not caring at all and simply wondering what the day has in store for us and being tossed about like a small ship at sea during a violent storm. Being self aware and intentional about our day, our week, and our life, can be much better and useful for us and those around us. Knowing exactly what we want, and consistently working towards making it happen, empowers us and everyone around us.
We are in control of creating the life we want. Our life, our happiness, and our peace is 100% OUR responsibility. It all begins and ends WITHIN.
Today’s challenge for myself: Today I will review my goals. If I have none, I will answer the question: “What can I do consistently, each day, that will make me a better version of myself, every single day?” I will commit these goals to writing and get in to the habit of reading them in the morning, and before bed, in order to remind myself of the things that are important to me, and to create a more helpful, effective and empowering mindset and life of greater value for myself and those around me. I will intentionally create a winning strategy and plan to take consistent actions towards consistently UPGRADING.
