I first learnt about memento mori as I noticed it tattooed on a guys arm at a mastermind I belong too.
I then looked more into it and the meaning is so true.
"Remember your mortality"
We will all die.
Accepting this, I believe is an important step into the start of living. Yes, living.
Too many people go through life, conforming to the status quo without ever questioning why they do. Without even realising it they end up neck deep in mediocrity. Our societies help breed its ugliness.
We have all been there to some degree. I despise it and recommend we don't play at that level.
Why do we rush through life? Rarely pausing to soak in the experiences, the views, the smells and at times the freshness of it all.
I think it is because so few people sit down and plan what they want their life too look like. Many people spend more time planning a 1-2 week vacation then they do planning their life.
Where is the life vision?
We need a vision. Life, business etc
Once we have the vision, it needs to be shared with those positive people around you. It's your life and you should be doing what you want. Be careful of sharing your vision with those that want to keep you on their level of mediocrity. They are all around you.
From the constructive critique you get from those positive people around you, it's then time to develop the strategy on realising that vision.
The vision forms the beacon. You're guiding philosophical light.
The strategy is what gets you there.
It's your life and most of us have been luckily granted freedom to do what we like or if we don't like it. We have the ability to change it. We should be deeply grateful for that.
In this day in age, we have so many opportunities to no only do what we love but make money from it to. The amount is squarely up to us and the value we provide to our clients.
Life IS to be lived.
It's a ride of a lifetime.
Lets go out and starting creating, exploring and for gods sake not conforming to the status quo. Get uncomfortable. Nothing is gained within your self imposed comfort zone.
And as the end of the Holstee manifesto states:
"Life is short. Live your dream and Share your passion".
