Life Is a circus Book
Your perception drives your actual environmental reality
The Expense Of Life
To reach the potential required, to have happy and productive relationships, to give meaning and purpose to life, to not have any regrets, these are some of the components that give life its true value. To fail in achieving these basic tenants becomes an expense in the form of an opportunity of a lifetime being lost which leads over time to regrets corresponding to this loss.
The potential to waste time with so many attractive distractions becomes hard to resist. But what is the definition of time well spent, for some people, this is doing productive or beneficial activities but again standards across different perceptions may be vastly different with concern as to which priorities should be considered or pursued.
Life is governed by legal and legitimate personal choices that don't encroach upon others, and not taking liberties will lead to well-lived experiences that produce a plethora of wonderful memories. In these times people are only too willing to interfere in the concerns and lives of others that they have no legitimate right to be involved with. These modern-day Samaritans sometimes get involved in the tinkering into the soul right of others to choose a course of life or actions without unwonted and unrequested interfering domination by outsiders.
Many bite the bullet when faced with such external nuances, choosing to keep quiet and not engage a nosy busy body who believes their opinions have a right to impact others who have zero interest in such unsolicited external involvement in their personal affairs. Those that interfere in the lives of others believe it is their right or duty to do so, irrespective of any negative responses or pushback they may receive from the recipients of their unwanted and unjustified attention.
Life has a cost of time that is constantly in motion and passing by at an incredible speed when looking back, the incentive, therefore, is to spend that time pursuing personal desires while achieving peace and contentment. There is no purpose in being out of sync with those deepest personal intentions and desires. Through creating, developing, or searching for the ideals that subsequently entice action to achieve them will provide the basis for creating the components of a life worth living.
Being comfortable in excepting the current conditions experienced while fully realising acceptance is the best choice under the circumstances will require restraint concerning the situation that presently exists; while recognising potential improvements in a presently stable state requires careful consideration before upsetting the status quo. So many people possibly accept the unacceptable right through to acceptance of undesirable circumstances that exist that these abnormal life experiences become thought to be the norm. The main goal initially is to avoid wasting any time, but more specifically a lifetime can be impacted due to being burdened with unacceptable negatives and unproductive pursuits.
Finding a true purpose and meaning not only on a daily basis but also developing a mindset that is aimed towards relentlessly pursuing the potential that truly exists in life. Life is like gardening, the more you feed the mind and body with positive uplifting nourishment the better and more invigorating and beautiful life will become. The potential seeds of a successful life are there waiting, all that is required is the ideal and correct attitude and action to enable these seeds to exist and flourish.
A Dance With Fate
Everyone at some stage can feel locked into what at times seems like a dance with fate, so while it may appear like there is no escape from a particular set of circumstances, on some occasions no hope is readily available, and in certain situations no solution. Yet actually, this scenario is just a self-made illusion, perhaps propagated by seeds of negative thoughts from others or deep-rooted within the personal psyche.
The facts are, there are always solutions to whatever you are facing, always hope, alternatives exist offering an escape. As with any dance, your dance with fate is determined by who will lead; you are either lead by fate or you are leading, the choice is that simple to make. Fate is mostly governed by your dreams, your desires, your thoughts, your ideas, and your imagination, these bring about a predetermined outcome that was in effect was self-created.
You are not a pawn in the game of fate, rather you are a player; it is your decisions that govern what happens, your choices that will make your life wonderful or not, with the potential of life being like your own heaven or hell. If you allow fate to take the initiative there is no knowing where or how you will end up. Good or bad every endeavor is at risk, every outcome having the potential to exist, much like throwing dice, a pure game of chance.
You need to take hold of the reins of fate and make life what you wanted the outcomes to be, having all the things that you desire, doing what you want and need to do, meeting the people that you desire to meet. In any undertaking, you need to control all the details of your life and avoid fate or undesirable circumstances controlling your life experiences.
