The Meaning of Live:
Have you ever found yourself going through the monotony of “just another day”? You drive to work and don’t even remember how you got there because it is the same routine day after day, month after month, and year after year.
If left alone, life can manifest itself into the a never-ending cycle of tasks, chores, and responsibilities. Fortunately for you, it does not have to be this way. No one can impose a life on you that isn’t acceptable to you. You have the power to map out a different destiny – one that provides contentment, happiness, and fulfillment. If it sound simple, that’s because it is. Make a decision and commit yourself to it – you’ll get results.
The Live Soul Bracelet is the reminder to proactively take control and LIVE your life. Give up things that are preventing you from reaching your ideal lifestyle. Embrace things that are congruent and help you realize your dream lifestyle. Once a decision is made in your heart, mind, and soul, nothing can be allowed to get in its way. You are dictating to the world – “This is what I want. This is the ONLY thing I will accept”. Circumstances and situations start bending to your will, because you simply won’t allow anything else.
Begin by asking yourself tough questions about the future. “What exactly is my dream lifestyle? How does it look like?” Start setting some small goals each day, week, and month that motivates you to do new and interesting things. Hobbies often are unrealized passions. Surround yourself with people who you admire or find interesting. Observe and learn from them. Without even realizing it, you’ll find yourself imitating the way they speak, the actions they take, and most importantly, the thoughts they have. This is all paving the road for success. To create your dream lifestyle, surround yourself with people who are already living it.
Use your Live Soul Bracelet to remind you to live life in such a way that you can look back and be grateful for all of its experiences, memories, and moments. Don’t look back and have regrets. Be proactive, take charge, accept risks, and make the most out of every moment you are given. The definition of an inspired life is different for every person. Take a daily glance at your bracelet to remind yourself to venture forth and discover what that means to you.
A Story of Live:
Jerry was the kind of guy you love to hate. He was always in a good mood and always had something positive to say. When someone would ask him how he was doing, he would reply, “If I were any better, I would be twins!” He was a unique manager because he had several waiters who had followed him around from restaurant to restaurant. The reason the waiters followed Jerry was because of his attitude. He was a natural motivator. If an employee was having a bad day, Jerry was there telling the employee how to look on the positive side of the situation. Seeing this style really made me curious, so one day I went up to Jerry and asked him, “I don’t get it! You can’t be a positive person all of the time. How do you do it?” Jerry replied, “Each morning I wake up and say to myself, Jerry, you have two choices today.
You can choose to be in a good mood or you can choose to be in a bad mood.’ I choose to be in a good mood. Each time something bad happens, I can choose to be a victim or I can choose to learn from it. I choose to learn from it. Every time someone comes to me complaining, I can choose to accept their complaining or I can point out the positive side of life. I choose the positive side of life.” “Yeah, right, it’s not that easy,” I protested. “Yes it is,” Jerry said. “Life is all about choices. When you cut away all the junk, every situation is a choice. You choose how you react to situations. You choose how people will affect your mood. You choose to be in a good mood or bad mood. The bottom line: It’s your choice how you live life.” I reflected on what Jerry said. Soon thereafter, I left the restaurant industry to start my own business. We lost touch, but often thought about him when I made a choice about life instead of reacting to it.
Several years later, I heard that Jerry did something you are never supposed to do in a restaurant business: he left the back door open one morning and was held up at gunpoint by three armed robbers. While trying to open the safe, his hand, shaking from nervousness, slipped off the combination. The robbers panicked and shot him. Luckily, Jerry was found relatively quickly and rushed to the local trauma center. After 18 hours of surgery and weeks of intensive care, Jerry was released from the hospital with fragments of the bullets still in his body.
I saw Jerry about six months after the accident. When I asked him how he was, he replied, “If I were any better, I’d be twins. Wanna see my scars?” I declined to see his wounds, but did ask him what had gone through his mind as the robbery took place. “The first thing that went through my mind was that I should have locked the back door,” Jerry replied. “Then, as I lay on the floor, I remembered that I had two choices: I could choose to live, or I could choose to die. I chose to live. “Weren’t you scared? Did you lose consciousness?” I asked. Jerry continued, “The paramedics were great. They kept telling me I was going to be fine. But when they wheeled me into the emergency room and I saw the expressions on the faces of the doctors and nurses, I got really scared. In their eyes, I read, ‘He’s a dead man. ” I knew I needed to take action.” “The Nurse asked if I was allergic to anything. ‘Yes,’ I replied. The doctors and nurses stopped working as they waited for my reply… I took a deep breath and yelled, ‘Bullets!’ Over their laughter, I told them, ‘I am choosing to live. Operate on me as if I am alive, not dead.” Jerry lived thanks to the skill of his doctors, but also because of his amazing attitude. I learned from him that every day we have the choice to live fully.
