“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The next best time is now.” —Proverb
Our life is not meant to be defined as simply the sum of our experiences. Rather, it is the manifestation of our chosen values through the decisions we make and the actions we take to find meaning and create purpose. If you haven’t started that journey toward your own mental, spiritual or social awakening, you could always start today.
Remember, only you can prevent yourself from investing in the development of your character. No one else has this power over you.
Being truly cognizant and mindful of ourselves in all our decisions, actions and beliefs is the first step to understanding the underlying causes of how we succeed and fail in our journey to create value-driven purpose and goals for our lives.
- How do your values affect the decisions you make and the actions you take?
- Do your decisions or actions match the values you support?
- Why is there a discrepancy?
