Yolo (you Only Live Once)
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

When life throws lemons be grateful. Be grateful because lemons are a way life checks in. The dead know no lemons, no bad days but silence and nothingness is their day-day experience. It takes a near death encounter or a loss of someone special to us to actually realize how much change and progress we can make with the little time we have. We need to forget the little things that bother us and focus on the bigger things we want to achieve.

No man knows his final hour nor the final day of his life. Imagine if we all knew when our last day was! That would be great, right? Scary maybe? Well whether great or scary but the fact is that the way we live our lives would change that day. I think if we all knew when we are going die we would live our lives with a little more purpose. Everything we do would be deliberate, we would be less apologetic and definitely have some fun, because after all ‘you only live once’ (YOLO). If we our final day, we would live purposefully because we would have a clear measure of time. ‘’How long will it be to achieve your goal? Two days, maybe two years? However long it may be I’ll keep on it till my last days” you would say (That’s what we call persistence). That is the quality you maybe don’t posses now, but if you knew you were going to die it won’t be that hard for you to develop it.

I think all of us posses a great power and a great desire to achieve but sometimes for us it takes an epiphany or an eye opening encounter for us to develop it. Mr. Bill Cosby said that to succeed your desire to succeed has to be greater than your fear of failure. He didn’t said to become successful you have to be Bill Gates, or have a degree or come from a rich background. Did he? But to be successful your desire has to be greater than your fear. The emphasis here is that whatever background you come from, whatever qualifications you may have acquired they all don’t determine whether you’ll be successful or not, but it’s your desire to succeed that will determine that.

No one knows when they going to die. When Coo Chanel said, “You live but once, you might as well be amusing” it serves as emphasis that one should live life with purpose and not with fear. Because fear will destroy everything you desire and it will consume you. Making mistakes is a part of living, failure is part of learning. Live with boldness and do not allow challenges to bring you down. But let challenges groom you to be the best version of yourself.

“Life happens for us but not to us”. Be in control. Stay TRUE and KEEP ON!
