You only live once, but if you do it right once is enoughposted by Russ Whitney in Russ Whitney

live-for-todayHello friends, Russ Whitney here with your Wednesday blog. If you’re new to the Inner Voice you might not realize that I reach out to my readers and friends every Wednesday, so welcome if this is your first time here.

Today I’d like to tell you something that I realized in the last few years, especially during my spiritual journey that led up to writing my latest book, Inner Voice: Unlock Your Purpose & Passion. That “something” is simply this; all of us only get one life to live but, if we do it right, that one life is enough.

Now of course the first thing that many people will think about is money and, without a doubt, having a few bucks in the bank can certainly make life a bit easier.

But the truth is that what I’m talking about today isn’t money but something much deeper and more important. It has to do with always giving your best, never taking life for granted and putting relationships with family and friends above all else.

Living your life well means treating people with kindness, loving people without any thought of what you might get back in return and doing what you love even if some people don’t particularly think that it’s the “right thing” to do.

It means starting every day with a positive attitude and a smile on your face and, at the end of the day, feeling like a champion even if you’re just a clerk in the company mailroom. It means telling your spouse that you love him or her, volunteering because it’s the right thing to do and letting the people around you know that you appreciate them for everything they do.

You don’t have to make millions of dollars to be able to do it, and you don’t need to be a king of industry.

What you do need however are humility, kindness and a heaping helping of unadulterated joy.

My friends, none of us get more than one life but, without a doubt, if done right that’s really all we need.

Thanks for joining me today. This is Russ Whitney for Inner Voice wishing you a wonderful week.  See you back here next week Wednesday.
