Living your best life is all about ‘you’. It is about glowing for everyone to see what makes the real you. Embracing what makes you different will eventually result in success, happiness, and contentment. Self-identity is the first step to a satisfactory life. Know who you are in all respects.
What is the Beauty of living your best life? What do you think a man’s best life could be? Is it about seeing the president and his wife together with their children on a vacation? Or it is about a royal party in the house of a king? People say life is beautiful, but unfortunately, not all of us see and feel the beauty of it.
Living Your Best Life Depends On Your Thoughts/Mindset
The mind is a powerful weapon that could be used to cause a drastic change in one’s life. Irrespective of your circumstance, you could train up your mind to release some happy hormones into your body and make you stay positive and hopeful. These are some of the benefits we often get from getting encouragement from people.
Imagine the thought of a gentleman who is broke and looking weary, hopeless and sick. Could life ever look beautiful to him? I bet you — he may not even have the appetite to eat his favorite dish. Unless something inspirational drives him to live his best life by moving forward despite all the awkward moments surrounding him.
A similar situation happens when you lose a loved one; just like the one finding himself in a hospital bed. Is there anything like beauty in life to such a person? I will take a quick break here to remind any bereaved reader that even death has a lot of lessons to teach us. It is therefore advisable to pay heed to the moral lessons unpleasant situations like these teach us.
I know there are people out there who are still living their best life irrespective of the damages they face. It is about being strong emotionally, psychologically and spiritually. This is the foundation of people who become successful, happy, fearless and hopeful about the future.
Look at the brighter side and you will begin to live life beautifully — despite the pains and sorrows. You have no valid excuse to mirror the lives of others because you see it beautiful, rich and adorable. Hey God made you for a purpose. He delights in seeing you happy. His grand plan is to make you the head, not the tail.
“Infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen… yourself, right now, right down here on Earth.” — Bradley Whitford
Don’t fight on your own. You are too feeble to conquer life challenges without the help of God. As a Christian myself, I encourage you to learn how to fight the good fight.
You Are Always Responsible For Your Happiness/Sadness
Waking up each morning tells you there are a lot of things to do. Nobody can literally make your life more beautiful than yourself. It is about making your mind up to enjoy the little you have. Contentment is something we all need to embrace. Living your best life is not so different from living a purposeful life.
Gradually the little you have will increase. Although it doesn’t just work like that: You have to work hard, plan well, and be consistent. Keep on hammering until you get the desired shape of your life. Living your best life has nothing to do with unhealthy competition. The fact is you are in competition with yourself. Forget about your contemporaries and predecessors. Strive to be better in everything you do today than yesterday.
This will result in a constant progressive move. The result might not be noticeable now but in the long run, you would be proud of yourself.
You will surely have a lot in your mind to execute. However, the truth is that each one of us wants to be happy and successful. But this kind of achievement does not come on a silver platter. It is far different from hoping your wishes come true.
You need to be realistic. Work hard for your lofty goals. Moreover, pray continuously for your needs. Oh yeah, spirituality is also very essential in breaking through life’s challenges.
As you keep on reading this post, I would like to remind you that: It takes little things to feel happy and live a successful life. Think about:
⇒ having a lovely family around you
⇒ the smell of the flowers
⇒ the lovely air we breathe
⇒ friends who make you laugh and forget your pains.
It Takes Little Things To Make You Enjoy Your Best Life
Remember that, almost all the most important things in life are free. This is why even the poor can enjoy a happy life. To make every single day beautiful and fruitful make sure you do the following:
2. Be Kind
3. Think Positive
4. Work hard
5. Pray often
6. Try new things
7. have fun/ hobbies
8. Read books to increase knowledge
9. Do little exercise to stay healthy (health is wealth)
10. Live in the present by avoiding worrying about tomorrow
These and many other things like reading novels, inspirational messages, magazines, stories, cute quotes or any interesting book that will spice your day. Or engage yourself in something that will keep you busy and make you productive at the end of the day.
Sometimes bad situations will arise. It is normal to face challenges in life. But there is nothing beautiful like being an overcomer. Win over anything that tries to pull you down; fight whatever is trying to steal your happiness. It could be financial constraints, sickness, diseases, failure, rejection, loneliness, fear, marital problems, etc. Don’t succumb to failure. Avenge your failures with success by focussing on your goals while you work assiduously towards them.
Living Your Best Life Will Not Be 100% Easy
If you hear anyone say Life is:
• Meaningless etc.
It is true. Because our journey on earth is full of uncertainties, mysteries, and challenges. So in living your best life; you are presented with so many choices. Good choices bring about real success and happiness. There are rewards or punishments for your actions and decisions (You reap what you sow).
Remember that life is not a good place for the weak, lazy and losers. Be strong and fight for anything worthy of your time, energy, knowledge and wisdom. Remember that resilience is one of the keys to a happy life. Don’t give up on your lofty goals.
It will never be easy though, but it is worth trying. Don’t deceive yourself or be complacent that you will sit down for the golden moment to come.
Don’t be puffed up with pride even if you are a knowledgeable person. Just step forward in humility. Take one step at a time and eventually, you will reach a mile and beyond with flying colors.
Don’t forget that the most important thing is about making good and right choices. Think critically before you take yourself through any relationship, business venture, or whatsoever.
Choose what makes you happy, choose the best for your life and you will never regret it. Be proud of who you are and acknowledge the fact that there are good things hidden inside you; unleash them by thinking outside the box and challenging yourself to reach higher heights. I mean you have to step out of your comfort zone to soar before you can be happy and successful in life.
Don’t allow yourself to be controlled by your friends or anyone. They don’t really know you. You are the master of your daily activities. Know your potential, strength, and weakness, and adjust your life appropriately. You surely know yourself better than anyone closer to you. Listen to your conscience… It has something better for your life.
Stay on the safer side and you will always smile; Not because your life is perfect but because you feel ambitious and happy. Don’t let go of anything that adds value to your life. If it is your wife/husband cling to him/her. If it is your job/business, do it well.
These are some of the simple things that make life beautiful. My friend, forget about money as the major factor in living your best life. It doesn’t take money to be happy or become an awesome person. Just be a light for those around you. Sometimes you have to be humorous. After all, laughter is a medicine that heals emotional pains. Charlie Chaplin once said:
“A day without laughter is a day wasted. To truly laugh, you must be able to take your pain, and play with it!”
After all, happiness is a choice. This means it’s a state of mind. Why not look out for those little things that make your life beautiful? Stay away from the shadows of darkness. Stay away from negative people; give no room for drama. When living your best life —forget about the odds. Keep on looking at the brighter side.
You deserve the best in life. It would always be wise to keep your friendship circle small but with real people. Embrace the real friends who are like brothers.
