…… “ As long as I remember, since my early twenties
I have been a person who liked collecting material
It started with clothes and jewellery; then I moved
to money; later on I started collecting furniture
and other house items.
All these made me feel happy at the time.
Although I went through a number of hardships
during the years, I never realised that all these
things I was gathering did not really matter to me
A few years ago, I suddenly understood that I had
accumulated much more than I needed in my life.
I was still feeling dissatisfied and disappointed;
and I always felt as if something was missing.
I knew, I needed desperately to take some action.
So I sold most of my jewellery, I disposed of almost
all my clothes, and I sold almost all my furniture
and other home items.
Doing all this took me a couple of years, but I must
admit, afterwards I felt remarkably free and ready
to move on …… “.
There are many things in this world that are priceless.
But the most invaluable possessions are not our houses,
or our money or our cars.
They happen to be only a few things, which are not
even so obvious — and we only realise them when
we lose them.
So here are these few extremely important things in life:
Most people take their health for granted.
They neglect their physical and mental well-being.
They disregard exercise, and as a consequence they
are unfit and overweight.
They forget all about their diet and nutritional needs,
so they feel poorly.
Take all the necessary steps to ensure you are in good
health; because without it, your life is a hopeless
and intolerable journey.
The majority of people do not have complete freedom.
That is, freedom of thought, freedom of speech, freedom
of change or freedom to be themselves.
Consequently, they live an unfulfilled life and in misery.
Freedom is a choice.
You need to be willing, determined and make sacrifices.
Take action to minimise or eliminate any boundaries
and ties in your life.
Do what really makes you happy, because this is the most
important thing for you.
So many individuals just exist because they were born.
Purpose is the reason you live your life as you do, whatever
that may be.
It is the motive and the passion for you to keep going.
It enriches your every day life with special meaning and
Purpose is your guiding light in the darkness of life.
Live your life with purpose.
All humans on earth have the exact same amount of
time in hours every day.
Nobody can ever buy more of it or take back time
The way you use your time dictates how successful or
doomed you will be in your life.
Almost all people complain that they never have enough
time to do what they want, and they feel stressed,
anxious and depressed.
But time is always there for them to use it effectively
and efficiently — if only they were more organised.
Time is your whole life, and reflects your personal
The choices you make every day.
Use it wisely.
Finally, our loved ones are our support in life.
They make it interesting and entertaining.
Cherish them, be honest and sincere with them,
and you will feel happier and at peace.
The Bottom Line
These are the five most important things in life
Make certain that you own them, feel grateful
you do, and always act accordingly.
Life is too short.
So focus on the important and the necessary things;
and ignore all the rest.
