What does it take to live a life rich with possibility, to transform one’s quality of living, to show up as a leader? I say it starts with a willingness to take responsibility for our lives and the world (which includes our fellow human beings) within which we dwell. Getting that we are the authors of our lives and not “victims” that is to say that we have a say in how we live, how our lives turn out and how the world is and is not. From there we can invent possibilities that move-touch-inspire us and give us being in the present moment. Acting decisively and persistently, out of the context of these possibilities, we shape ourselves and the world that we dwell in.
The quotes that best speak for this blog and the game ‘play BIG’ are:
“At all times, under all circumstances, we have the power to transform the quality of our lives” Werner Erhard
“Life can be pulled by goals just as surely as it can be pushed by drives.” Viktor Frankl
“But man is not made for defeat. A man can be destroyed but not defeated.” Hemingway (The Old Man and the Sea)
