5 Of The Best Life Advice You May Have Never Received

  1. You can fail at doing what you don’t want so you might as well take a chance at doing what you love. I heard Jim Carey say this during a university Commencement address, when he was talking about how his father settled for a safe accounting job rather than pursuing his passion for comedy.
  2. Reflection time: Are you truly doing what you love in life or have you chosen your path (or career) out of fear, which is cleverly disguised as practicality?
  3. Things will happen in life according to universal laws. Just because something hasn’t happened in the timeframe you thought it would, it doesn’t mean it hasn’t happened. It is happening! There is a universal law called the Law of Gender, which states that every seed has a gestation or incubation period. A certain time must elapse before something is manifested. Ideas are non-physical seeds and the same law applies.
  4. Reflection time: If there is something you have not been able to create in your life yet, what are you giving attention to? Is it to what’s missing or what hasn’t happened yet, or is it to the things you can continue to do to make it inevitable that you will create that thing in your life?
  5. You are never given a problem unless you have the capacity to overcome it. Problems are a sign of life. Those who don’t have problems are no longer with us in this world. Rather than getting worked up or stressed about the problems we have, we have to learn how to use problems as opportunities for growth.
  6. Reflection time: How are you developing your ability to anticipate things better in life? Those who can anticipate challenges before they arise typically are able to overcome them easier and faster, without affecting their lives in a negative way.
  7. A graveyard is one of the most valuable places you will ever find. Why? Mainly because that’s where you will find potential never manifested, books never written, music never played, and ideas never given birth to. Most of us are not willing to step out and pursue our passions and dreams because we make up stories as to why we can’t. We are never given a dream unless we have the ability to make that dream a reality.
  8. Reflection time: Do you want to die with your music still inside you? What are you willing to do starting today to create the life you truly desire?
  9. Our main purpose in life is to follow that which brings us joy. Joy is our inner guidance system. When we’re truly feeling joy, it means we’re on purpose and doing what we are meant to be doing in life. Our only ambition in life should be to happy and we usually find that when we’re in service to others.
  10. Reflection time: What are your passions in life? Are you aware that your passions are clues to your purpose in life? What steps are you taking to express or fulfil your purpose in life in a bigger way?
