What is your most powerful tip in Life?

Updated: Apr 6, 2020

After almost 40 years of life, struggling to finish university in my 20's, working and living within the rat race, travelling the world, starting from nothing and then gaining financial success, finding love within marriage, and creating last year to share these ideas with the world, my one most valuable tip is really the cornerstone to living a deeply fulfilling and meaningful life.

First, think of where we all come from and where we are now:

No not your home address, city or state. Think bigger, as in the cosmos that surrounds us. If you look at the universe, and movement of stars, of planets, of gases and dust, there is no one defined path. Instead, at it's very essence, the cosmos is in a state of play. It is in the middle of a dance.

Think of your favourite song. Or an amazing live concert you’ve experienced. Was the meaning of that song or performance the ending? Or was it simply being there, and taking part in it’s dance.

Now think to your favourite memories in life. It could be the birth of a child, your wedding celebration, it could be an amazing trip with friends, or perhaps it was finally reaching a goal you’ve been working towards for a long time. Whatever that favourite memory is, in any of those instances it all boils down to this.

The most powerful tip I’ve learned in life is that life is really just a dance. It’s not about the final destination. It is about the memories along the way, about the hard work that made dreams a reality. It’s about spending time with the people you connect with and care for the most. It’s about removing suffering from our lives. It’s about comforting others when they need our help. And it’s about giving back to become part of a greater good.

While I’m a firm believer of planning for tomorrow, and learning from the past, understanding that life is a dance will help ensure we each live with BALANCE in our lives.

This means taking time to enjoy moments from every single day. This also means learning what caused you to have a bad day, and to make the necessary corrections for tomorrow.

This means removing unhealthy elements from our lives. It means loving what matter most, and removing the rest.

The Dali Lama has a quote on life’s meaning:

“Given the scale of life in the cosmos, one human life is no more than a tiny blip. Each one of us is a just visitor to this planet, a guest, who will only stay for a limited time. What greater folly could there be than to spend this short time alone, unhappy or in conflict with our companions? Far better, surely, to use our short time here in living a meaningful life, enriched by our sense of connection with others and being of service to them.” – Dalai Lama

So enjoy the dance of life. Do not wait for the song to be over or it may be too late.

I heard something recently that I know rings true: The reason most people don't reach their goals in life is because they don't have a clear idea of what their goals are. And then for those who do have a clear vision, they don't stick with the daily process of working on reaching those goals until the job is done.

It means finding fulfillment in each day, and purpose in life, at any age.
