THE DAILY MOTIVATOR
Wednesday, July 25, 2007
A quality life is about much more than merely accumulating a
lot of stuff. A quality life is about much more than
impressing others with how clever or fashionable you are.
Real fulfillment comes from making a positive difference in
the world. A life of richness comes from focusing not on how
much you can grab, but on the original, valuable and lasting
things you can create.
When you choose to compromise your most deeply held values,
anything you gain by doing so will be of no real use to you.
If you must betray the unique person you are in order to
feed your appetite for fleeting pleasures, you have dealt
yourself a tragic loss.
On the surface, virtue and restraint may seem to be dry,
boring and old fashioned. Yet they can bring a depth of
richness to life that cannot be attain in any other way.
The joy of opening gifts on Christmas morning becomes a
meaningless chore if you've been immediately satisfying
every whim all year long. The delight of enjoying a gourmet
meal loses all its appeal if you've spent the day grabbing
snacks every time you're slightly hungry.
Be careful not to invest your precious life in things that
disappear the moment they're consumed. Focus on what you can
give, and express, and create, and you'll experience genuine
satisfaction that never runs out.
