Look for things to do in life that give you joy, that give you a feeling of juice running through your veins. Look at what you’re doing with your life and ask the question, ‘How much of what I’m doing each day do I LOVE to do?’ When you can say ‘all of it’ – you know you’re living your dreams.
If much of what you’re doing in your day involves doing things you do not want to be doing, things that you don’t love – then think of the old man sitting in his rocking chair overlooking the valley from his front porch. In his hands is a stick and a pocket knife. He puts the blade to the wood and begins to scrape shavings of it onto the ground until there is nothing left but a single sliver.
This is a good way to look at life. Continually refine yourself. Give up doing what you do not like to do and replace it with what gives your life meaning. Figure out a way to get to the end of the stick. Whittle it down to a single sliver. And when nothing is left – everything is available to you.
