“It is not length of life, but depth of life.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

This quote screams “Quality not Quantity” to me. I think our lives are meant to be rich with relationships, experiences and abundance. The best scenario is to have quality in large quantities. Wouldn’t it be great if we could all live in perfect health, living fully, spreading love and joy and experiencing everything our soul desires for 100 years or more? It would be a tragedy to live a hundred years or more if it’s full of routine, and drudgery. That would be more like a life sentence than a life.

How do you live more fully? I think one of the keys is to be very clear with what drives you. What motivates you to get out of bed every day? If just doing that is a struggle, maybe it’s time to do some reflection on what brings joy in your life, and find a way to do more of that. I’ve heard an expression that says “many men stop living at 25, but don’t die for another 50 years” meaning we lose our zest for life at an early age, and just continue on living out our days without passion and desire.

What small step could you take today that would enable you to do more of what you love? Do you even know what it is that really motivates you? Here’s a little process that may help you get clearer on where you shine. This process has been used by entrepreneurs and individuals around the globe to help them identify their own Wealth Dynamic.

      Thanks for the comments Hermina. What is it you are against? I’m open to having a dialogue, but it’s hard to do without knowing what your thoughts are. I love a good discussion, so I look forward to your response.

      Best of Success,
