What Will You Do With What You Have Left?

What Will You Do With What You Have Left? By Jim Morack

Having just celebrated another birthday, I am not-so gently reminded about both the beauty and brevity of life. In marking another year of life also comes the realization that – at least statistically – I am on the downside of my experience here on earth. Having lived 52 years puts me on the B-side on the record of my life, folks.

This isn’t meant to sound depressing. In fact, for me it is an awakening. And no matter how old you are, this should be an awakening for you as well. None of us know how many years we will be blessed with before we take our final bow on life’s stage.

So, how are you choosing to live those years? Cautiously, excitedly, optimistically, fearfully?

Have you decided to pour yourself into your dreams and fulfill your heart’s desire, or are you choosing to push your dreams off to the side because you are too busy with other things? Have you decided to seek out or be part of an enriching relationship, or are you choosing to be alone or remain in a broken relationship because it is all you have or all you know? Have you decided that you will be prosperous, or are you choosing to live paycheck to paycheck, wondering how you will make ends meet? Have you decided to live a life of passion and joy, or are you choosing to live a life of mediocrity because you are too afraid to express the true essence of your spirit?

BE AWARE that this intricate, beautiful, and educational journey we are on has a beginning and an end. It doesn’t matter where you are along that voyage. But what does matter is how you will experience the rest of it. Do you want to leave this place with regrets, having not lived it the way you wanted to, or will you depart it with joyous exhaustion, knowing you fully spent all you had to give, sharing your greatness with the world?

You must decide today – in fact, RIGHT NOW – that settling for less is no longer acceptable to you. You are done waiting for the right moment. Instead, you are creating it. You are deeming this very moment a moment of creation; a New Beginning in your life. This is where you make your stand that going forward, things will be different… better, more fulfilling, and enjoyable.

Begin to feel a new flow of energy grow in your being. It is the birthplace for all the joy yet to come.

Feel it. Use it. Rejoice in it.

What do you believe?

As you begin your day today, ask yourself, “What do I believe?”

Do you believe you will have a good day, a fulfilling day, an enjoyable day? And if so, how do you know? Do you somehow ‘will’ it to be a good day, no matter what happens?

Or do you believe you will have a bad day, a sad day, an angry day? And if so, how do you know? Do you somehow ‘will’ it to be a bad day, no matter what happens?

In either case, what you believe will happen is exactly what ‘will’ happen.

Remember this… how your day unfolds does not depend on the weather, your job, you significant other, your kids, your finances, your living conditions, etc. It doesn’t depend on any of these things.

The only thing it depends on is what you believe.

Try this on for size: say, “I believe today is going to be a crappy day, filled with challenges, conflict, and disappointment.”

Can you almost feel yourself beginning to pull those things toward you? Say it again. I bet it starts to come even closer. You are beginning to believe it. And as those thoughts settle in a little deeper, you begin to find things in your day that could lead to disappointment, conflict, and an overall crappy day. You begin to find situations that support your belief that it will be a crappy day.

Now try this one: “I believe today is going to be a great day, filled with smiles, unexpected kindness, and something fun!”

Can you almost feel yourself beginning to pull those things toward you? Say it again. I bet it starts to come even closer. You are beginning to believe it. And as those thoughts settle in a little deeper, you begin to find things in your day that could lead to fun, happiness, and an overall good day. You begin to find situations that support your belief that it will be a great day.

As your beliefs go, so does your day go. In other words, you have a choice in how this day turns out.

So, as you begin your day today, what do you believe?
