Living life in the fast lane is all very well if you get an adrenalin pump from rushing around like an ego maniac. To create a healthy lifestyle though is to eat, sleep, and live life in accordance to the way you see yourself and how you fit into everyday occurrences from daybreak to nightfall.
To arrive at such a position, it requires input. Input from you. You see lifestyle is personal to everyone of us. It’s living in almost perfect harmony which creates repercussions of excellence, so working on lifestyle really makes a difference in reaching objectives as it stimulates creation.
The rat race denotes the latest lifestyle trends in the retail industries, but it plays havoc on emotional intelligence. It can be time consuming, family matters are jeopardized, and ultimately very stressful to live life in the fast lane. Certainly, a lot of us go through it during our lifespan. It’s part of the growing up phenomenon.
Take a minute to analyze your life and what you have achieved, and then ask yourself if the lifestyle methods you use are getting results? Are you content with your lifestyle? Have you reached your goals? Are you blending into life the way you envisaged? Then you should be able to either step on the gas, or reduce the pressure to find the perfect mode for trajectory growth.
So the real question might be to ask if growth determines the passage we are on? I think we all have our own definition of that; however, it sometimes helps to think outside the box, and about how the journey we are on is going, then how we can improve it, and what is the potential outcome if we stick to our guns.
Yes, the journey has a final destination, so let’s make the most of it while we are here.
Have a smashing day!
