Are You Thriving Or Just Surviving?

My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.
[Maya Angelou]
To thrive means to grow, to develop and to flourish.
What steps are you taking to begin your journey from survival mode to thriving?
I know what you’re thinking… Well, you don’t know what I’m going through… What I’ve been through or the challenges that I’m presently experiencing.
Yes, there are periods in our lives when we have to go into survival mode, just to survive. I understand that; but the key is making the decision to NOT stay in survival mode permanently.
Life can be hard, but it doesn’t mean that your past struggles have to equal your future identity.
Take some time to reflect on your life and the changes that you would like to make then start with small intentional steps.
“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
[Lao Tzu]
Reflection will help you to see what has worked in your life and what is not working.
Reflection helps you to see what needs to change and then you can create your own personal action plan.
Change isn’t always easy and you may experience fear during the process, but change is possible. You just have to do it scared.
“Remember, a real decision is measured by the fact that you’ve taken new action. If there’s no action, you haven’t truly decided.”
[Anthony Robbins]
A decision to thrive and grow instead of staying stuck and stagnant can change the whole direction of your life.
But, it takes a conscious decision to thrive. A mindset adjustment may be in order.
