"Never say Never, Live life fully with no guilt... Take full responsibility, then when the time comes make it Work"

I used to write on a weekly basis, but it took me A bit more than 3 weeks to write this post.

During the last 3 weeks, I just did what I felt like, what I fancied. We, as human being we often make the same mistakes, so it is better to acknowledge that fact and "Never say Never"

 

1. "Never say Never":

In a perfect world, we are rational people, we plan and execute and by logic everything, go the way we want.

If you manage to do that, great chances are that you are successful! Don't get me wrong, I would like to be able to do that, to plan and execute like " a machine"

Unfortunately, life comes in the way, in form of temptations, opportunities...

As an example, how many of us eat healthy and well for a certain period of time and then lose control?

It happens to me, so I understand that it happens to others. 80/20 is a good ratio of consistency. If you manage to do right 80% of the time and not so good 20%, most likely you will be successful.

Nevertheless, remember, we are human, so not perfect... "Never say never" and live live fully with no guilt.

2. "Live life fully with no guilt"

What make life worth living is to enjoy each and everything we do, in other words, today is to be lived and tomorrow we will make the adjustments and corrections.

I previously talked about nutrition, now I will take work as an example.

In order for me to be happy, I need to comply with my religious, family, fitness and work duties.

Early this year, I was working really hard and getting the financial rewards of my hard work. The truth is that I was not totally happy. As there are so many hours in the day and if you spend a lot of time working you may miss out other important things.

With no shame, I can say that work is important but not to the point that I have to miss out the other vital aspects of my life.

In the last 3 weeks, I put work on "Hold", I worked enough to fulfil my duties, but put forward my welfare. The result is that I feel generally better, as I can rest more, train more and better and give the best of me to my loved ones.

Do I feel guilty of not working as hard as I could? The ANSWER IS NO!

Back in 2002, I was taught about "The cost of opportunity" an economic concept that states: "when we do something, we lose the opportunity of doing something else" in other words if you are busy doing something don't spoil it by thinking about something else or "Live life fully, with no guilt... Take full responsibility, then when the time comes make it work"

3. "Take full responsibility... then when the time comes make it work"

There are many things in life we can control and many others we cannot, so we just need to worry about the things we can control.

To assume our responsibility is important, as stated previously we often make questionable choices. Nevertheless, I believe it is human nature. Personally, I believe that we go through cycles of being and doing really well and then we don't do so well and we have to bounce back and get back on the right path again.

This 3rd point, is just to remind us that our lives is made of cycles and the way we apprehend the phases 1 & 2 make people happy or Miserable.

 

What is the take?

"Never say Never, Live life fully with no guilt... Take full responsibility, then when the time comes make it Work"

It is a call to Optimism, to enjoy life responsibly!

To be happy, you need to do things that make you happy, you then have to deal with the consequences of your acts. Obviously, the things you do are not unlawful or life frightening!

Finally, once you satisfied that mental, physical break you get back to that healthy routine of yours.

Remember Even successful people go on holiday or get fat...so don't knock your head against the wall because you ate too much or haven't exercised for 3 days...SURELY YOU HAD SOMETHING BETTER TO DO!
