Born to Fly!!

Born to Fly

You were born with potential
You were born with goodness and trust
You were born with ideals and dreams
You were born with greatness
You were born with wings
You are not meant for crawling so don’t
You have wings…
Learn to use them and fly!

Imagine if you were living your dreams, following your passions and being as great as you can be. Perhaps you already are but if you are not, you really can transform your life! It is fully up to YOU to identify your calling and live a passionate and fulfilling life. Take a look at your life to discover what is driving your life, what areas of your life you are doing great in and where you are crawling. To get you started here are 3 suggestions to help you live BIG and FLY:
1. Become a Life Long Learner
Dedicate yourself to constant learning, improving and growing. Our parents bring us into this world, feed us and we grow automatically. We don’t have to do any work to grow up . We go to school and our teachers help us and push us to learn and grow. This makes us believe that growth is automatic, which is not the case! As soon as we finish school/university, the process of learning and growing stop for most people because there is no one out there to push them to learn. No one out there to push them to grow. Most people don’t read a book after finishing their formal education. Jim Rohn said “Formal education will make you a living. Self education will make you a fortune.” I love this. Don’t just depend on your formal education to live a great life. Commit yourself to personal growth and become a life long learner. Make a commitment to yourself to read for at least 20 minutes a day. Why? Because its your life and you are here to FLY. Here are few ideas to get you started:
– Read for at least 15 minutes everyday.
– Listen to audiobooks, podcasts in your car or during your workout.
– Observe successful people and learn from them.
– Take time to reflect on your own experiences.
– Never miss an opportunity to learn and grow.
2. Take Action
Taking action gives you energy. When you take action and accomplish something your body releases the feel good neurochemicals in your brain that gives you energy and happiness. One of the feel good neurochemicals Dopamine is released whenever you take an action or accomplish what you planned. This is the reason that you feel good when you do the work to achieve something. Have you ever felt motivated or energetic after mindless internet surfing, or watching mindless TV? No, didn’t think so? So don’t wait for the surge of motivation to do the work, instead execute your plan to get the energy and motivation. Most people wait to feel good before they start anything but not you, not anymore. You do the work, you take action to get energy, to feel good and stay motivated.
3. Stop taking life too seriously
Yes, simply lighten up and have fun. Make each day a fun day. Remember to have a good laugh and to put a smile on others faces. It really is that simple.
So there you go, three simple but powerful ways to live big. Remember you are one of a kind, there is no one out there like you. You were born to be GREAT. So be great. You were born with WINGS, so use them to FLY.
Be your best everyday!
