This might as well be our view of the world if we choose to die before we're actually dead.
"Everyone dies. Not everyone really lives." - William Sachs Wallace
Scary title for a blog post, isn't it?
I hope so.
In reality, we should all fear death, but not in the way that you may think.
What I'm referring to is dying before we're dead.
Sadly, many people die thousands of little deaths before they finally make it official.
Without any doubt, experiencing those tiny deaths on a daily basis is not only extremely painful, but those tiny deaths also make it so much harder for us to live our best lives before we reach the grave for good.
And if that wasn't bad enough, those tiny deaths could also cause us to reach the grave much sooner than necessary too.
This path doesn't have to be for us.
If you've ever experienced that sickening feeling when a tiny piece of you dies by not fully honoring yourself, this post is for you.
Below are 7 ways that many people experience death before reaching the grave.
If you're experiencing any of these, commit to making today the day where you fully reclaim your life.
The man/woman staring back at you in your bathroom mirror will thank you immensely for it.
1.) Keeping Toxic People in Your Life - "The first time someone shows you who they are, believe them." - Maya Angelou
2.) Believing the Naysayers - "Someone's opinion of you does not have to be your reality." - Les Brown
3.) Being Happy Later - " Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present." - Jim Rohn
4.) Chronically Complaining - " You don't make progress by standing on the sidelines whimpering and complaining. You make progress by implementing ideas." - Shirley Chisholm
5.) Not Valuing Time - " What you do today is important because you're exchanging a day of your life for it." - Anonymous
6.) Living in Fear - "A coward dies a thousand times before his death, but the valiant taste of death but once." - William Shakespeare
7.) Failing to Take Personal Responsibility - "The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. The gift of life is yours. It's an amazing journey, and you alone are responsible for the quality of it." - Dan Zadra
Which one of these life-stealing habits are you currently experiencing and committing to end today?
I don't know about you guys but I've found myself in the situations that Shola speaks of many times in his blog "7 Ways that People Die Before They're Actually Dead." There is so much more to this blog than what I have listed here and I hope you will take the time to read it, savor its meaning and implement it.
Just for kicks ~
