So far as the universe is concerned you are not special. The universe does not revolve around you. The universe has laid out no destiny for you. You are one of billions of self-aware creatures that by sheer chance just happen to be in the world. It’s up to you what you do with your life. The universe doesn’t care. Take yourself and life less seriously and just make the best of the circumstances you find yourself in.

We have free will: we can indulge our animal instincts and revert to the level of beasts, or we can develop and apply our reason and intellect and soar with the angels. We are free to choose to develop or not to develop ourselves, and thus choose for ourselves what we will become.

 

Live your life with Purpose

You only live once. This is it.

 

Be Positive and Confident

Do every task diligently and with a positive attitude and you will generally feel good about yourself.

 

Be happy

You can be happy if you choose to be, irrespective of your circumstances. Happiness is a conscious choice, not an automatic response. The more you act and behave like you are happy, the happier you will feel.

 

Be in the Present

Do not waste your time wishing you were in another moment, or wishing you were in someone else’s moment. Be in the moment you are in now. By wishing you were somewhere else, you are simply throwing away the time you have now.

 

Each Day

Every morning start your day with a new resolve. Be a new person each day.
