As human beings, one of our deepest-rooted desires is to have a meaningful and happy existence. You’ve probably heard of the saying, “Live your best life.” actually, that’s a good advice.
It’s possible to engineer the lifestyle you want. You might not get every aspect of it, but don’t confuse having everything in life, with having the lifestyle of your dreams. You don’t have to earn billions of dollars to have it.
We all want to feel connected to both ourselves and others. We want to feel that we’re part of something important and that we’re making a difference in the world.
We want to look back at our lives and our achievements, and be proud. In short, we want what the saying says: to live our best lives.
But what does it really mean to live your best life?
You are a unique individual, so living your best life is exclusive to you. Your best life will reflect your true values. It will be made up of what makes you happy and will be colored by what “making a difference” means to you.
While living your best life is all about you, what other people think can have an impact on your quest to living your best life.
Social media, for example, puts us under a lot of pressure. There are specific expectations of what “happy” looks like, and we’re under pressure to conform to what society expects
We can spend so much time worrying about what other people are doing, trying to live the life that society expects of us, that it can be easy to lose track of what makes us happy and what our best life actually looks like.
To live your best life, you must be the best version of yourself. Don’t try to be something or someone else. Don’t try to be what other people want you to be.
Also, you must get to know yourself better, observe yourself. It’s your best life after all, not anyone else’s.
If you aren’t taking any action to turn your life now, chances are you will live the same routine for the rest of your time.
Maybe life is uncertain for you now, but you’re capable to take back control of your life.
I’ll leave you with this quote from Joe Lewis, and it goes thus ; “You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.”
