Living a successful life is actually simple.
Many tend to think that in order to do that it will require you to have a lot of money, material possessions and pretty much whatever everyone else has that money can buy. More often than not though, that is an ill conceived illusion that is permeated by the powerful force of consumerism.
Before you disagree, just consider this. If you have a lot of money, material possessions and pretty much anything that money can buy, will you consider yourself successful? Whose definition is that? And who are those actually for?
If the answer is not you, then perhaps you might have to rethink them again. If you haven’t thought about it, now is great time to do so.
For the most of us, we are fortunate or in this case, not quite so, to not know when our last breath will be. I believe that it is a shared statement that the ending is pretty important. Journey is too but the end, that’s the closing statement. The one that will be your legacy, the one that your family, friends and future generations will remember you by.
I firmly believe that we need to live a life of meaning, and if we do so, the numbers of years left do not really matter.
