Your life’s destiny is to become the very best man you can be.
It’s no more complicated than that.
Develop your character with Virtue and protect your Soul at all costs. This is the ultimate goal as you live your life in this broken world of ours. Everything else is just a means to an end.
It is never too late to change course. You can turn the corner at this very moment if you so choose. Make the best decision you’ve ever made right now. Every new day can become a canvas, with the rest of your life as the raw material.
You do have this power.
Make this decision and it will be a huge relief. You will immediately unburden yourself of everything that is unimportant; of everything that becomes the fog of life, clouding the way to your Ultimate Self. You will now be free to pursue your true purpose, your life’s destiny.
Consider the following to get some perspective.
We live on a planet that is spinning around the sun at more than 66 thousand miles per hour. Our galaxy, the Milky Way, is comprised of 100 billion stars and is one of 100 billion other galaxies in an ever expanding universe. Incredibly, The Milky Way galaxy is itself spinning at more than 500 thousand miles an hour and is so large, that it will take over 120 million years to complete a single rotation. And all the while, this same galaxy of ours is traveling through space at over 1.3 million miles per hour.
The Creator of this entire ridiculously immeasurable expanse, a universe expanding at an exponentially increasing rate into nothingness, took some time one day to create the Spark of Life that is you.
And remember, no matter what your path, what it is you do you or where you are from, you are unique in the universe. Your soul, genetic coding and mind are unlike those of any other man.
Never forget this. Despite the limitations of your physical form, your true potential lies in the very origin of your creation. This is indeed a good start.
Think about it for a moment. If you have great plans for your life and if you believe in your potential for personal greatness, imagine what the Source of all that is thinks you can do. Imagine what the Creator Himself sees in your potential.
And now here you are. Whether your life is good or you are in the middle of a life storm, here you are.
My advice to you is to embrace it all. Set the bar high and then forever cut through each day with a vengeance. Make this your first thought every morning when you wake up and your feet hit the ground.
Use the life you have right in front of you to always become more than you are. Make yourself a promise to have No More Zero Days. Always become a better man. Pursue your immense potential and transcend it all.
Rise above the fray by practicing willing acceptance and taking right action. Accept that challenges will always present themselves. No man has the golden key. No man is immune.
For whatever reason, we’ve been placed on this earth and then let loose on our own. Use your free will right now and make a decision. Above all else for the rest of your life you will pursue your very best, regardless of what life throws at you. Regardless of how hard it is.
Resolve to flip every obstacle that presents itself, even those of a deeply personal nature—especially those of a deeply personal nature. These are the ultimate challenges in life. But the potential for Virtue and growth in these cases is the greatest. Find a way. Never stop and never quit.
Look at all of life as a challenge, both good and bad. For there will be lots of both. This is just the way it is.
As for what you do for a living or what your profession, in my opinion it doesn’t really matter. It’s not what you do, but who you are and how you do it.
All work is noble. But the work you do is not sufficient in itself. It is possible to succeed at a very high level and yet tarnish your soul and to not become the very best you can be. Extrinsic success is not sufficient to achieve your life’s destiny. Sometimes it can even become the door to a man’s downfall.
We see this all the time with those who have achieved power, wealth and fame. So many leave a long line of broken relationships and immoral actions behind them through selfish and unprincipled behavior.
As the saying goes, wealth and power do not make the man, they reveal him. Without morality and Virtue a man will self-destruct under the weight of his own success.
Better to go about your life modestly if at all possible. You do not need to achieve notoriety to become the very best you can be. Quietly do what is right each day. Quietly become the tip of the spear for those you love. And quietly break new ground and develop yourself. Do all of this for its own sake and focus on intrinsic values.
Commit to always do what is right and you can’t go wrong. Become disciplined and consistent and you will eventually become the habits you practice. Choose wisely and then allow the magic of compounding to lift you up.
Stretch yourself as well. Become a dynamic man and add some layers to who you are. Read each and every day to open up and develop your mind.
Take some risks. Be willing to fail and learn. But whatever happens keep pressing forward—keep pressing forward and imbue yourself with the energy of Righteous Defiance when life pushes back.
Raise your thinking and all your standards. Stand tall each day and tear after your pursuits knowing you can do more, much more. Without a doubt you can become twice and then three times the man you are today. And do it all with class and Virtue.
This is the path to lasting happiness and an elegant congruence with the natural order.
Pursue the glory that is your birthright. It was written into your Soul and your genetic code by the Creator Himself; of this there is no doubt.
Take what is rightfully yours and live each day with unbridled energy.
Become the Force of Nature you were meant to be.
This is your life’s destiny … enjoy the ride.
All the best,
