“Overcoming adversity and ultimately denying it the rite of passage, has been a constant and perpetual motive through my life.” — Heather Mills
If you have ever said to yourself, “I’m just waiting to be brave enough to…” then I invite you to stop waiting and start transforming each life adversity into your life advantages. I invite you to be brave enough to love yourself enough to finally go after what you want out of life. To recognize that your life really matters, that who and how you love really matters, and that you are successful. When you take the step to say all this about your life, you will have proven to yourself that you are brave! To help take that step apply these Don’t Die Principles in your life and see just how brave you are!.
- Change your awareness and your perspective changes. We think we’re waiting for something to happen so the next positive opening will occur in our lives. What we’re really waiting for is to break loose from our resistance to what is. That’s where bravery comes in. Awareness of waiting allows us to change our perspective and accept that what we do while we wait is defining our lives and what we achieve.
- You teach what you need to learn. Learning, like all life, is a crooked path of connected events. Sometimes we don’t even notice that seemingly unrelated occurrences offer different versions of the same lesson. Sometimes we are the student and sometimes we are the teacher. And often we are drawn to teach exactly what we need to learn.
- You can make excuses or you can achieve your goals, but you cannot do both. At least not at the same time! If you find yourself saying you can’t, you won’t, or you don’t know how to do something, yet you insist it is the very thing you want most, you are making excuses – excuses for not living the life you want.
- Experience is what you get when you don’t get what you want. You may not realize it but whether the “experience” is positive or negative is something you totally control. With heightened awareness there is no excuse why your perspective cannot be shifted to achieve the life you desire, teaching others just what it means to be brave.
That’s it in a nutshell. Your bravery. Your life. Your loves. Your success. Don’t die waiting to start living your spirit today.
