Lifestyle Check: How to Start Living Up to Your Full Potential
There was a time in human history when all human beings were contented with earth’s abundance all around them. Mother earth could provide all the riches a human being needed to sustain their life. If you wanted meat, wildlife provided more than enough. If you preferred fruits and vegetables, you could practically wander around anywhere and grab it!
Back then, life was simple. Life was about survival. The entire earth was your safe haven, and you already had everything you needed in order to survive: the prehistoric wealth that surrounded you.
As time passed, the human race has continuously wondered and wandered. Their minds, filled with curiosity, sought to explain the seemingly infinite amount of possibilities of the universe. “What will happen if…?” “When will this be…? “Who will lead us to…?” “Where will this…?” Questions popped up like droplets from a raging waterfall. Eons later, we’ve arrived at the present time. The current generation.
People are now learning to survive and thrive in a world that has evolved faster than they have. Thought, once, life was much simpler, people have continued to search for the “answers” behind the complexities of life in order to attain their inner growth. However, for better or worse, the human race is still keeping up with the world’s trends, and staying alive while accepting the near-constant changes that our world brings.
It’s time to see if your life is still on-track and if you’re ready to take it to the next level.
Your goals define you. Goals determine how people choose to live their own individual lives. It speaks of how you were groomed to be the next batch of active people to rule the earth. What goals you set for yourself ultimately determine how what type of person you are, and where you will be in the future.
Nowadays, people are constantly busy trying different ways to succeed and understand the game of life – to the point that they often forget what it means to actually live. Laying out goals for yourself paves the way to being self-content and personal satisfaction. Thus, truly living life!
Finding personal satisfaction means being contented with what you have. It can be simple: when a person wears his favorite pair of shoes during a game of basketball, he feels more comfortable and more powerful. Even that is contentment.
The same level of confidence exudes from a lady striding confidently as she walks by with her new and glamorous dress, or when a man flaunts his finely contoured body as a result of his regular routine at the gym.
Your goals could be absolutely anything. It’s not the goals themselves that matter, it’s the satisfaction you get from reaching them. For instance, physical goals may include the simple but worthwhile goal of living a healthy life.
Almost everyone shares the same objective of achieving a healthy life. You have to watch the food you eat, the activities you engage in, and the length of time you put into your much needed rest.
No matter how much time and energy you spend, if you feel the ends results are worth it, then they are worth it.. What is important is to know what you want and why you want it. The how’s can follow. When the heart and mind is pure, your goals will materialize.
The Technology Effect
Humans are social beings. We are always trying to connect to more people through any means possible
Technology comes to the rescue by allowing various developments and discoveries by humankind to continue. Living life has become a wonderful thing for anyone to do. Despite all the negatives, there are many things that we have today that improve our lives – and that is thanks to technology.
Nowadays, some children, even some adults, are not fully comfortable with meeting up with a person in the flesh. In the modern age, where things that seemed impossible before have been made possible, nothing is ever as it seems. From telegrams to cellphones, from black and white images to high definition videos, from riding horses to flying with airplanes, all of those things has brought about massive societal changes and many have affected relationship building.
At the end of the day, networking matched with the burning desire to keep the lines of communication open is the greatest tool for anyone to find success in life. What is important with technology is to embrace it while also ensuring that you don’t become overly reliant on it.
Right now, you can easily see hundreds of thousands of people using their handy-dandy cellular phones to take pictures and videos of their precious moments with their loved ones. Even things that seem as simple as the best air purifier are marvels of modern technology.
There’s nothing wrong with what technology has brought to humankind – despite the negatives. In fact, it’s made the world easier to live in and often even more entertaining. However, the fact that people are becoming entirely too dependent on it seems to be a growing trend.
Growing Up with Modernization
No one can deny that things have been lost due to the process of modernization. You may be tired of hearing that line from your parents and grandparents, but it does have merit. As they say, leave the past behind and stay focused on what is happening right now. History is always worth telling to the young generation, but not worth being stuck on. There will always be a never ending cycle of then and now when it comes to the stories of each and every generation.
Don’t you want to reminisce to the time when buildings, cars, and pollution didn’t cover the Earth? Who wouldn’t want to stroll around again at the astonishing green fields of grass which are now filled with countless skyscrapers? Or perhaps you miss the days when people were actually having fun conversing with each other and not with their phones? Imagine what this modernized world could be if just a few of those things were taken away. Perhaps this world really would be better off. Perhaps things would be in balance, and everyone would be much better off. It’s hard to say for certain.
The task that now lies ahead for people is maintaining the boundaries of modernization while focusing on personal growth. Ensuring that technology stays in its own place, while being part of the our society’s growth. Yes, it is a challenge. However, if we are able to so, the world will certainly be a happier and healthier place.
As they say, there are two sides in every story. No matter how long and dark the road may be, there will always be a light at the end of the tunnel. The most important thing is that people are growing up and catching up to the demands of the modern world. There is no turning back in this constantly evolving world, and everyone shares his or her participation towards its progress.
No matter who you are, no matter where you are, time will never stop moving, and our world will never stop evolving..
So when it comes to living the life to its fullest, always remember that the outcome is entirely what YOU make it.
