The Meaning Of Your Life

What determines the quality of your life is not where you live physically, but where you live emotionally. You control the meaning of your life.

You cannot control the external world, but you can control how you choose to respond to events that happen to you, be that either in a positive or a negative way.
It is important to realize that you cannot control anything in this world except your Self.

Your internal world is comprised of your emotions – how you think and feel. Your success is determined by your ability to master your emotions.

Life is comprised of a myriad of challenges that are designed to test your ability to be resilient – your ability to adapt in the face of daily stressors, challenges, hardships, or trauma. Oftentimes, we cannot control what happens to us.

Bruce Lee said it best – “Empty your mind. Be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend.”

What he meant by this is that water is shapeless; it doesn’t fight when its put into a container, but instead, it adapts and changes to fit its new reality. This adaptability is a quality that all of us need to strive to achieve. Your strength lies in your ability to control your inner world, and the meaning that you associate to different events that happen in your life.

Ask yourself – do you use challenges as opportunities to grow and learn something about yourself, or do you blame others for your shortcomings ?

You can choose to be empowered or destroyed by what happens to you. You always have a choice. You need to train your mind to see the positive in every aspect of your life. If you, it will set you free. Do not become a slave to your emotional reactions. Be proactive, and take control of how you respond to the events that happen to you.
Become the master of your life. The choice is yours.
