"Every next level of your life will demand a different you."
- Leonardo DiCaprio
Time to get existential. Why are we here? What's it all for? Why do we keep getting out of bed every morning until one day we don't? For me, it doesn't get much deeper than that. Scientists, philosophers and sages have all pondered this big question. What is the answer? Depends on who you ask I guess. We each get to answer that question for ourselves if we choose to. I feel it changes for everyone over the course of their life.
The meaning of my life has evolved into a five word mantra: Level up. Enjoy the ride! I equate this to purposeful learning and growing while living life on the bright side. It's waking up every morning with a clearer understanding of myself and the world around me while making a renewed commitment to living my life to the fullest. I commit to living with more purpose, passion, enthusiasm, loving kindness and joy in my heart.
I also level up by living my Why, my personal purpose in life. I choose to help humanity level up by inspiring and motivating others to become their best version of themselves. I'm taking all of the lessons I have learned and knowledge I have gained in life and presenting the content in a way that encourages people to not only level up, but to also enjoy the ride!
We are firmly strapped in to this rollercoaster ride of life. We get to choose how we handle the ups, downs, corkscrews and loops. It can be thrilling or threatening. It can be fun or fearful. The choice is ours. I choose to enjoy the ride. I pay no mind to others on the ride looking to disrupt my good time. If they are not enjoying the ride, that's on them. But I refuse to allow them to ruin the ride for me. Life is too short for the drama. I learn the lessons and turn stumbling blocks into stairs. It took me a while to get to this point in my life, but that is where the leveling up is paying off. It helps me enjoy the ride!
