“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive … and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.” Maya Angelou
The majority of people on Earth have realized and unrealized life goals, it’s a fact of life for most people. Failing to discover and act on the steps required to accomplish your goals is probably the single most unspoken regret of many.
Have you ever wondered why some people are able to complete what they set their mind toward consistently and others don’t? Some people are always masked in busyness – when you ask the question, “how are you doing?” their reply is “busy” or “swamped” or “running around like a headless chicken” – they are mired in a stream of never ending busyness.
Whether they realize it or not, they are just surviving. Never ending busyness can be a mark for some that they are too lazy to prioritize their activities, make tough and good life choices on what and how to spend their time, and most importantly finding the mental fortitude to just say “no” to requests and activities that don’t add to their goals. What they don’t realize that this type of “busyness” can feed into the feelings of being overwhelmed, helpless, and powerless in their life – just surviving.
The alternative is to surviving is having a clear vision on what is important to you and prioritizing everything based on achieving goals. You have to trust yourself and capabilities in assembling and executing steps toward achieving successful life outcomes. You should be comfortable with learning something new daily and always looking for opportunities to apply your knowledge.
Fundamentally, moving from surviving to thriving requires time, focus, and consistent effort. Some of the activities that will help set a path for thriving:
1) writing down what needs to be done and prioritizing the activities
2) be effective at getting your priority list done
3) fill your time with activities that provide fulfillment
4) always look for opportunities to improve yourself
5) live within your means
6) set expectations for yourself and people you interact with by managing your time wisely
7) make precautions – plan for the worst, hope for the best.
There are several steps you can add to your daily habits which will get you on the path to both handling your business and moving you toward thriving. What are your going to do next ?
Move from surviving to thriving- it’s a process.
