Don’t settle for less! Seize the day!

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

April 2010 was a rough month. Those who know me closely understand the pain I went through in losing my younger brother. At that point I stopped working on this blog for a couple of months. What I know for sure is that life happens and we are not meant to stop our path towards destiny when we encounter difficult situations. I once received a card that has encouraged me to remember this message. The card, titled, Follow Your Destiny, Wherever It Leads You!, has a message on the inside that says,

“There comes a time in your life when you realize that if you stand still, you will remain at this point forever. You realize that if you fall and stay down, life will pass you by.”

This is significant because we tend to forget these deep messages that are hidden within our underlying consciousness of what life is all about.  The card went on to say:

“Rather than wondering about or questioning the direction your life has taken, accept the fact that there is a path before you now. Shake off the “why’s” and “what if’s” and rid yourself of confusion. Whatever was – is in the past. Whatever is – is what’s important. The past is a brief reflection. The future is yet to be realized. Today is here.”

What a beautiful message! This card cemented for me the truth that we are engineered for greatness. We were born for accomplishment. The key to greatness is in being able to seize every single day and utilize every life’s opportunities to live up to your full potential. Don’t settle for less when you can have more. You were designed for accomplishment and engineered for greatness!
