Life moves quickly, and if we don’t make a conscious effort to build the life we want and deserve, it will simply pass us by. Then we’ll never experience the wonderful life we are meant to live—one full of happiness, security, passion, significance and purpose.
Start living the life you want right now! The life you desire is within reach; you just have to grab it and truly want it. And I mean really want it. Wake up ready to seize the day. Say aloud or in your head, “Today is going to be a great day!”, “I’m excited to see where today takes me,” or even a simple, “Let’s do this!”
And remember, it’s never too late to get the life you desire. Age doesn’t matter when it comes to finding a life of purpose and joy. In fact, so many people don’t find their true calling until much later in life.
Martha Stewart didn’t write her first book Entertaining until she was 41! That book launched her career as a domestic diva, and her highly successful Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia company followed.
Tim and Nina Zagat didn’t launch their restaurant review guide until both were 51. Vera Wang was 40 when she decided to become a fashion designer, and Julia Child made her television debut at age 51.
Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote the first Little House book at age 65, which later evolved into the popular TV show Little House on the Prairie. Duncan Hines was 73 when he licensed his name to a company that developed cake mixes; we all know how that turned out. Success can happen at any age.
You have the power to live the life you desire. Don’t wait! Begin to make the small shifts that can forever change your life for the better. A life full of significance, joy and meaning awaits.
