"Look and you will find it; what is unsought will go undetected." Sophocles
When it comes to living life to the fullest, it pays to look in all directions. After all, you never know where your next break or great idea will come from. It may be just around the corner, just over the hill. It may happen any moment. It may pop up from out of nowhere. If you're not constantly vigilant, always on the look-out, you may miss it.
Just like the pedestrian crossing the street, it pays to look in all directions.
Yet far too many of us stopped seeing long ago. We stopped looking for the best life has to offer. We stopped looking for the best in other people. We stopped looking for the best in ourselves as well. In the process, we have closed ourselves to new ideas, new approaches, new ways of thinking and seeing and doing.
When we finally remove those blinders that impair our vision, we begin seeing the incredible beauty of the world all around us.
"We don't see things as they are; we see them as we are." Anais Nin
Life presents infinite promise, a limitless array of wondrous possibilities to explore and discover. There are endless new ideas, new approaches, and new ways of doing things. And they're just waiting to be tried.
Instead of doing the same old things in the same old way, why not break away and do something different? Instead of ho-humming your way through another snoozer of a day, why not elect to do something exciting? Instead of just going through the motions or looking for the easy way out, why not opt for something that brings out our very best?
"A man should look for what is, and not for what he thinks should be." Albert Einstein
Instead of thinking the good life isn't in the cards, why not seek the good life each and every day? You'll find it - if you'll just have the courage to look.
Instead of moaning about what you supposedly don't have or can't do, why not look for ways of getting what you want in life? You can find them - if you'll just have the audacity to look.
Instead of worrying about whether your dreams have passed you by, why don't you live every waking moment with unbridled passion, purpose and enthusiasm? Why not give life all that you've got - and see what you get in return?
"Look ahead; that is where your future lies." Ann Landers
Just like the person crossing the road, you need to look in all directions. That means looking back, looking around and looking ahead.
By looking back, you can take the best from your past experiences and leave the rest behind. You can see what you did right, what you did wrong and what you need to do to make things better. By constantly looking to glean something positive from your prior mistakes, you can turn your missteps into stepping stones. And immeasurably improve all facets of your life.
By looking around, I mean REALLY LOOKING around, you open yourself to the boundless opportunity that avails itself to you daily. Opportunity you have never seen before. Opportunity you never knew existed. Opportunity that can make your life all it could be - and should be. By seeing the opportunity, you can seize it.
Finally, by looking ahead, you can focus your attention on where you're going from here on out. You can plot your own course. You can plan your next steps. And you can script your own life.
A life filled with happiness. A life filled with accomplishment. A life where each and every dream you hold in your heart comes true.
The Bottom Line: When you look for the best in life, you'll find it. And so much more.
