"I live now."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
We've all heard the phrase 'living the good life,' but what exactly does this expression mean? That, of course, depends a great deal on who you talk to. If you ask a hundred different people to tell you what the good life is all about, you'd most likely get a hundred different responses. Each of us is distinctively unique and as a result, living the good life means something different to each and every person on earth.
Regardless of how we individually interpret what living the good life is all about, it is something we all desire. But wanting the good life and actually living it sometimes seem to be on opposite ends of the spectrum. If you ask the same hundred folks if they are actually LIVING the good life right this very moment, more than a handful will readily admit their lives leave something to be desired. And if you asked them if their lives could get better - maybe even a lot better - the majority would say yes with an exclamation point!
"How soon not now becomes never."
Why is the good life such an elusive pursuit, a hard to corral prize that oftentimes dangles out of reach like the proverbial carrot in front of the horse? We can see it, almost even touch it and yet, many of us never seem to quite reach it. And that frustrates us no end. After all, we really want to live this good life we've been hearing about. Or do we?
Truth be told, too often we wait and hesitate when we really need to act. Instead of knuckling down and doing what we need to do, we unconsciously postpone and procrastinate our lives away. Instead of grabbing life by the horns and making things happen, we dawdle, delay and defer way too many things way too many times.
"The future is now."
Nam June Paik
After awhile, we can get to the point where we actually begin believing the good life is not in the cards; that its just not going to happen. Oh sure, we say to ourselves, maybe it's out there for the other folks, but just not for me. We can even start thinking we don't deserve the best life has to offer.
Do you really believe that our Creator put us here to languish in last place while others enjoy life's very best? Or that we were born to stumble around in mediocrity when there is an overabundance of opportunity at every turn? Not a chance! We deserve more, much more. But in order to get more, we've got to give more than we've ever given; much more. Showing more effort, more energy and more enthusiasm than ever before is a great place to start. And could there be a better time than right now?
"If you're not ready to make a difference right now, when will you be?"
Why shouldn't you live the good life, thoroughly enjoying yourself each and every day? And why shouldn't you start living life on your own terms right this very minute? But in order to make the good life a reality, you need to stop making excuses and start making something happen daily; something special, something spectacular, something truly amazing. And that means seizing the moment and squeezing all the fun, excitement and happiness you can out of life.
Your life can become everything you have ever dreamed it could be and more, but the good life is not going to fall into your lap. You've got to believe you can have it and then go out there and make it happen. When you finally throw your entire heart and soul into living life the way it was meant to be lived, you'll discover the good life is right where it's been all along; right there for the taking.
The Bottom Line: Somebody has to make history. So why not you - and why not now?
