Wow you probably think I’m crazy with a title like that. Before I commence I just want to say no I didn’t find a way to live forever (ha, I wish). Anyways, this post is going to detail how we really need to start living life. The life we have envisioned in our mind. The life you have dreamed about on those late nights in the office. Gaining the freedom which will allow you to do what you what and when you want. For example, riding down the city of your chose in your favorite sports car with the top down. It’s time to make those fantasies you have dreamed about on a daily basis a reality.
In The End We All Die
The common trait that is similar in all human beings is that we are all going to die. There is no way in which we can escape death. It simply can’t be done. It’s a reality that we all have to come to grips with. There is going to be a day when the sun rises and you’re not going to be here to enjoy that. You’re going to be elsewhere, far away. I find it pretty strange how one day we are not going to be living on this earth. Some people may become depressed by this fact; however the successful use this in their favor.
Confront Your Mortality
Realize that you are going to die. Accept this as fact. Don’t deny it, don’t dance around it. Just face the truth. One day you are going to be vanished from this planet. The successful people accept this and use it to their advantage. They live as if tomorrow they are going to die. Therefore, they do what they want and complete the tasks today instead of putting it off for tomorrow. Simply live as if tomorrow you are going to die. I know this is the greatest cliché of all time, however you simply have to abide by it. If you live everyday like it’s your last you’ll live life on a whole new level. Not only will you enjoy every minute of the day, but you’ll learn to do the things that you love to do.
Live Life On Your Terms
If you don’t like what your currently doing, simply stop doing it. If it is not fulfilling you, then you need to reconsider. It is not worth to live your last days on the planet doing something you despise. If you want to escape death (more on this later) you have to stop doing the shit that you hate to do. For example, say you’re an accountant who number crunches all day, you chose this profession for the dollars, but you hate going to work each and every day. If I were you I would find another profession that I love, regardless of how much money it pays. The reason for not caring about the money when deciding is because the biggest paycheque is paid to the very best, no matter what profession it is. If you simply follow your heart it will lead you down the path of a great job that you love to do. If you love your job you are more inclined to become the greatest and as a result you will get paid the big bucks. This is the reason why people say follow your heart and the money shall follow.
You need to stop living life on the terms that society has bombarded you with. Fuck all that, simply live life on your terms. Stop following society’s expectations. Set your own expectations for yourself. Live as a crazy individual. Real fucking crazy. What I mean by this is the crazy ones are the ones who don’t give a fuck about society and their expectations. Instead they set their own and they live life on their terms. They don’t give a hoot about what others have to say. Ha they probably take what others say as entertainment. You need to become one of these individuals.
How To Start Living Life On Your Terms
You need to set your own standards. Ignore all the preconceptions that society has created for you and set your own. The next step is to stop giving a fuck about what others are saying. The way to do this is by developing thick skin. Take what others say, listen to it, and ask yourself if the comments made are going to be of help or not. If the answer is the latter. Simply fuck it and continue pushing towards your dreams. Don’t let these dream killers get in your way. We are UNSTOPPABLE. Like a fucking train, can’t be stopped.
How To Escape Death
I think we all want to escape death in one way or another. The way I believe we can escape death is to live forever. You may have heard a song by Jay Z titled ‘Young Forever’. One of my favorite songs by Hov. This song, allowed me to take away the idea of living forever, although Jay Z may have been talking about something completely different. This is the beauty of music though; it allows one to make many different interpretations. Anyways, the idea of forever young in my mind is that if we want to live forever then the way to accomplish this is by staying alive in the hearts of millions well after our last breath. The way to do this is to lead remarkable lives. If you want to be great then you have to do great things. If you decide right now to become remarkable at whatever it is you do. I mean REMARKABLE as in putting your best foot forward every single time, you will begin to build one hell of a legacy. Leaving a great legacy like the likes of Tupac, Michael Jackson, just to name a few is the way we can escape death. You may be thinking you are nothing compared to these figures. You don’t possess the talents that these individuals had so you have no shot in leaving that type of legacy. However, boy are you wrong. Every one of us has it in us. The way to get it out is by simply following our heart and love whatever it is we do. If you follow your heart you can’t go wrong. I think our mind guides us in the wrong direction when it comes to being remarkable. Our mind takes us where the money is and where the average life is, instead if you follow your heart it will take you to a life without limits, the one that you have always envisioned in your wildest dreams… which is nothing close to mediocre. I end this article with a quote from the late (legend) Steve Jobs…
“No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true. Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
