Being Bruce -: Just say "GAR"!

Just say "GAR"!

Gratitude. Attitude. Readiness.

I believe we are each of us extraordinary people. We can choose to live extraordinary lives.

There are no barriers, but living an extraordinary life requires conscious choice.

An extraordinary life requires seven elements:

1. Knowing your life purpose
2. Gratitude
3. Attitude
4. Readiness
5. Goal
6. Decision
7. Action

Simple, isn't it?

The sticking point, of course, is #1. You may not know your true life's purpose. Well, that's OK. If you seek to know your life purpose you will find it, but it may not come easily or quickly.

What you can do, right now, is just say "GAR".

If you're not sure of your life purpose and therefore maybe a bit confused about goals, focus on elements 2 through 4.

Start with Gratitude - Often referred to as the mother of all emotions - be grateful for everything. Everything is a gift and/or a lesson.

Add positive Attitude - There's really only one rational conscious choice here - all else leads to decline and decay. Don't go there; choose a positive attitude.

Be in a constant state of Readiness - You may not know what the world will bring and it's tougher to bring it to yourself if you're not clear on your personal purpose. If you're "ready" you'll be prepared to act on opportunity when it shows up - and opportunities will appear, if you're ready.

"GAR!"

  2. Love your philosophy and totally share it. Especially #7. I am one of "four women, an idea, $5.00 and everything to gain from a strong economy" who will be kicking off a movement next week. Unfortunately, we're not Twitter experts...if I share and you agree with our plans, I hope you'll support us.

    Stay tuned.

  3. Well said. I especially agree with #7. I am one of "four women, an idea, $5.00 and everything to gain from a strong economy." We are launching our idea on Tuesday and would love to count on support (if you all agree) from Twitter-pros like you.
