Practices of Living an Extraordinary Life

Life is full of mysteries which include happiness and unfortunately hardships. Solving all the turmoil's that is associated with daily living is challenging yet can be rewarding as well. Attempting to keep pace with rigorous daily schedules in a world that continues to evolve with the introduction of new technology and the ever present danger of outside influences from other countries only increases the burden which dwells on the negatives instead of the positives which are ever present, however never recognized.

Life is more than financial freedom, although this appears to be the goal of the majority of individuals who seek such freedom. The steps to financial freedom are steep and narrow requiring dedication and sacrifices that are at times insurmountable and cumbersome. Focusing on obtaining what is often out of reach to many, detracts from the true rewards of life, simple yet inspiring daily surroundings that are taken for granted however remain clearly visible, ever present at the end of your nose.

In today's economy living life to the fullest is often associated with working 12-16 hours a day in order to pay for executive homes and expensive automobiles that are nothing more than a mere image of what truly lies beneath the surface. Climbing the corporate ladder often has rungs or steps missing which lead to additional downfalls which are rarely rectified. Seeking approval of others with promotions and corporate exposure from colleagues, co-workers and friends is undoubtedly the eventual beginning of a life filled with disappointments and many additional hurdles to jump over.
Surprisingly enough there are those individuals with firm beliefs that deem success is not measured by the size of bank accounts but by personal well-being and the inner spirit that takes the time to pay attention, to unplug from society for only a few parting moments. Success is becoming a whole person, a person that is aware of his or her surroundings, a person that is appreciative of sunsets, moonlit walks on the beach and a warm embrace from someone near and dear.

Success is a simple wink, admiring landscapes of distant shores seen for the first time or merely taking the time to greet strangers with a friendly and warm smile.
It is a simple fact. There will always be someone that has more or less than you have, someone who is better than you in many different ways. Comparison is one of the biggest distractions throughout life, one that depletes the soul of feelings and emotions replaced by hatred and ambiguity towards others and oneself. Comparing yourself to another is an irreversible form of self-destruction that only breeds contempt fueled by misunderstandings and rumors which spread like wild fires through a dry and depleted forest, forever burning. Be happy who you are, what you have not what you want. Experience life to the fullest by reflecting on the present, your surroundings and everyday occurrences that may appear ordinary or commonplace but are in fact miracles brought forth for all to share.
