Surviving VS Thriving - Sis


We are all trying to survive, everyone is just trying to do the best they can. I don’t want to only survive though, I want to thrive. I want to live a life of passion and purpose. I want to have more good days than bad. Simple changes and one’s mindset can help promote a life of thriving.

Thankful
Happiness
Reactive
Ingenuitive
Value
Educated

… like what I did there! 

Thankful :
I wake up every morning trying to be thankful. Some mornings are harder than others but before I get out of bed I try to think of one thing I am thankful for. It helps set my mindset positively and shows gratitude to the things around me.

To thrive in life you need three bones. A wishbone, a backbone and a funny bone. -Reba McEntire

Happiness:
Turn that frown upside down. You alone can only create your own happiness. Choose a life filled with joys, as small or big as they may be. Learn to deal with and conquer challenges and find happiness in all areas of life.

My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive, and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor and some style. - Maya Angelou

Reactive:
Don’t sit around waiting for the world to change. It is going to always be turning at the same speed. It is your job to fix something if it is broken. You have the power to choose how you react in each situation. Take life on running at full speed, don’t miss it because you were sleeping.

Learn to be your own biggest fan, the world will provide plenty of critics. -Dale Thomas Vaughn

Ingenuity:
Sometimes your going to have to get a little creative. Push yourself to come up with new solutions or a different way to look at the issue. Ask for someone else's perspective or change you own. Everyone can make binoculars out of toilet paper rolls, be the first one to make it into a piggy bank.

If you really want to do something, you will find a way. If you don’t you will find an excuse. - Jim Rohn

Value:
Find people and things that are of value to you. There is nothing better at the end of a long day then to open your door to a happy dog. That dog missed you, they need you, and they are not afraid to show it. Surround yourself with people and things that add value to your life.

Don't exit, live. Get out explore, thrive. Challenge authority, challenge yourself, evolve. Change forever. - Brian Krans

Educated:
Always force yourself to keep learning, I don’t care how old or how tired you are. Our brains are amazing machines that want to be challenged. Be open to new experiences and challenges. Never stop learning.

The beautiful thing about learning is no one can take it away from you.- B.B King

It is never too late to start thriving. The choice is yours. Make the change, take action, and do what is needed to start doing more than only surviving, start thriving.
