Today I wanted to check in with you to make sure you’re living life as it should be – as a journey not as some sort of a pilgrimage that has an end.
I think where a lot of people get stuck is thinking you need to reach some point and only then you’ll be happy. We start to think of life like driving – getting from point A to B as quickly as possible.
We keep trying to get somewhere and we forget about the whole journey towards that point.
I’m in Zurich and yesterday we went to go see a musical and it was absolutely amazing to see these orchestras because they play with such passion. They play with their eyes closed and they get so lost in the music that they feel alive in the music.
It made me realise that life should be lived like music. Life should be played like you would think of playing a piano or a guitar. You don’t say I’m going to ‘work’ the guitar. No.
The whole point of playing the piano is to enjoy the music along the way. How ridiculous would it be if the whole point of a song was the end? The best orchestras would only write finales.
As much as I’m always driving towards certain goals and achievement of those goals, we’ve got to remember that the journey is what is so important.
Life is a play. Life requires you to play. Yes you must have goals and achieve to make the world a better place, but never forget that the journey is what’s truly going to make you happy.
So this week, I’d like you to practice two things:
- Self-love. Give yourself permission to not be okay. Give yourself support when you are down. Remind yourself to be happy, inspired and truly favourable.
- There’s no quicker way to happiness than to practice the art of gratitude. Appreciate where you are, what you have and who you have in your life.
Keep on changing the game.
