Live audaciously – and fulfill your life purposes!
Posted July 2, 2012on:
Here in the U.S., we celebrate our freedom on July 4th – Independence Day! Not Entitlement Day or Convalescence Day! No, freedom to be independent to pursue our passions and purpose in life! I consider freedom and my wellness to be two of the most important personal assets I have in my life. Without them (which we simply do not appreciate enough) life does not have much opportunity or quality.
If you are free and have a sense of wellness, I would like to invite you to join me in audacious living to fulfill our life purposes. I want to finish my blog by quoting from one of the most inspiring little books you can read. If I could say it better I would but this is great. I highly recommend “Rhinoceros Success” by Scott Alexander published by Lampo Press. Here’s an excerpt from chapter 4 titled “Be An Audacious Rhino”:
“You are audacious! Your audacity makes you the charging rhinoceros that you are. This is what separates you from the cows and sheep. You are daring! You are adventurous! You are recklessly bold! You are a charging, not-afraid-of anything rhinoceros. You have guts! You have nerve! You have backbone!
Every day you wildly charge through the jungle having the time of your life. You don’t ask for anyone’s permission. You just plow through, knocking down anything that gets in your way. The jungle floor vibrates and the trees shake as you boldly charge through.
GO FOR IT is your motto. You shout it at the top of your rhino lungs every morning. You are not afraid of falling because you know that nothing can hurt you with your two-inch thick skin. The worst possible thing that can happen to you is that you will get killed, and death is a negligible incident in your life. Everyone dies, even cows and sheep. Why worry about that? Your future accomplishments are what excite you.
Today you might be in the depths of depression, but tomorrow you could be at the heights of ecstasy. You love adventure! Jack London’s verse really captures your damn-the-torpedoes, rhino spirit: I would rather be ashes than dust. I would rather that my spark burn out in a brilliant blaze than be stifled by dry rot. I would rather be a super meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.
Choose to be audacious. Have an audacious attack every day. Success is audacious. Be bold and go after it. Develop your audacity skills. Do things that take nerve. Don’t be obnoxious or make a jackass out of yourself but do every daring thing necessary to reach your goals. Every goal, every dream, every great project requires audacity. Aggressive, audacious, charging rhinoceroses succeed.
I would like to add that you are free and independent to pursue your purpose in life!! Charge!
I hope to see many of you at the Galaxy of Stars. It is going to be the greatest yet as we are going to charge our lives with an audacious goal of getting one million people to take the Nopalea 60-day Wellness Challenge by GOS 2013. Supermodel Cheryl Tiegs will be there Saturday to share her vision and goals to lead the charge. Quality of life is not an entitlement, but it is worthy of being pursued. That is our charge… to live and help others live with physical, emotional, spiritual and financial wellness.
