I had a busy day on Saturday. It started with being at my sons’ swimming competition and then went to a medical outreach. At the end of the day, I felt I deserved some scotch and coke on the rocks. As I sat there holding the glass, my mind went through my day wondering whether the day’s life trade was profitable or beneficial to me. Your life is like the money in your wallet and the world like your market place.
In the same way you spend the money in your wallet in exchange for items, holidays, food, education, medical services, etc., you also spend your life in exchange for whatever you desire. If you spend 6 hours of your time today watching Netflix, playing golf, meditating, learning something new, fighting, being bitter or being sad, that is exactly what you have traded your life for during that time and constitutes part of your day’s life trade. Whether intentional or inadvertent, the trade goes on.
If you want to live an exceptional or passionate or purposeful life, you must take control of the way you manage your life’s daily trade. You must be intentional about it and firmly move from the passenger seat into the driver seat of your life. This gives you power over your life and your narrative. You are the hero of your life story and the Nobel Laureate of your life. Trade your life accordingly.
“Most people, even though they don’t know it, are asleep. They’re born asleep, they live asleep, they marry in their sleep, they breed children in their sleep, they die in their sleep without ever waking up.”~ Anthony de Mello
