Don’t Just Survive: Thrive - Both Personally and Professionally

Posted by Matt Perkins in Articles

Even with all of our newfound technology that allows us to stay connected to everyone all the time, and the massive innovations in medicine that allow us to stay alive and live longer than ever before, are we truly thriving? Perhaps, when you think about it, we aren’t thriving anymore than our ancestors did when they just hoped to survive the day – to stay out of the bear’s jaws or to keep a fever at bay. When we are stuck in survival mode it means that we aren’t really living a fulfilling life, and we aren’t making any type of contribution to society. What does it really take then, to thrive, instead of just survive?

  • You truly are the company you keep. In other words, hang around winners. Everyone knows that the people you most hang around with have a definitive effect on your perspective. So, why waste time hanging around negative people who complain and have no real goals? Instead, buddy up with people who want to maximize their own potential, and you will find yourself in that loop, too.
  • Keep your eyes on the prize. That is, keep your life’s purpose in mind – every single day. When you visit your purpose every day, you breathe life into it, and in effect, breathe life into yourself – in essence, you thrive… You might not yet know your life’s purpose. Stay in tune with yourself and you will eventually learn it. Keep your senses open and ready for when the muse conveys it to you, this, in its own way, is thriving as well.
  • Be your own best friend. You know yourself better than anyone else. You love to read? So read! You love to exercise? So exercise. Whatever it is you love to do, make sure you do it enough to make you happy. Allow yourself to know that you deserve happiness. You wish happiness on your friends; you want them to thrive, right?
