The problem is that once we're older and “wiser“, many people trade in living fully in their purpose for more “grown-up“ version of life that range from merely passable to the full-on sucking. Continuously live your dream, no matter what stage of life you're in, instead of settling for mediocrity because you don't believe anything else is available or appropriate. . “We only get to be in our bodies for a limited time, why not celebrate the journey instead of merely riding it out until it's over?“. ⭐️ We must focus on the positive instead of the list of negatives we've collected over time, and keep that focus regardless of what flies in our faces. If you've ever known what it's like to be in your groove, and are having trouble finding your way right now, think back to your attitude and what your priorities were when you were totally lit up about life, and use them to help give you clarity and the kick in the rear end you need now. . ===. Just see what you can get away with: take the pressure off and get back in on the adventure. . Lose track of time: when you're so lost in what you're doing that you lose all sense of time, you have officially entered the Vortex. If you have to, make massive changes in your business and your personal life to include more time doing what you love. . Keep being the beginner: don't lose the fun in the process. . The only thing you need to do is the very best you can. Once you've done that, the only other thing that matters is that you enjoy yourself. Love Yourself.
