What would you do when your doctor said: “I am sorry to tell you only have 10 years to live”.
Would you continue working your butt off and earn a living? Would you try new things you always wanted to try? Experience things you’ve dreamed to try at least once in your life?
This thought hit me, what would I do when there are only 10 years more left in me? How should I live my life to the fullest?
Definitely, I spend more time with the people I love. The problem though, my savings won’t last that long when I stop working.
Therefore, continuing work is necessary. Spend the rest of my time with family. Saving up for things I want to do and experience. Double down on making more money on the side and work on things that can make my money grow on their own. Investing my money and make it multiply.
Enjoying the last month of my days, doing things I wanted to do and experience, to enjoy with my loved ones.
Lack and scarcity
It’s hard to live a life of lack and scarcity, not having enough to get by. Most Filipinos have this lack and scarcity in their life. Believing no matter what they do, they’re stuck.
I’ve been like that before too, and I am on the process of changing it. It’s all in the mind. The story you are telling your mind becomes your reality.
In Life, There are three kinds of people in the world. Those who make things happen. Those who watch things happen and those who wonder what happens.
You can only make things happen when you do commit to make a change. Change your story, wherever you are right now is Temporary. Life has more stored just for you. Your life going to change over time.
The door in your prison can be opened, you tried to open and failed. So what, keep going, keep trying.
You just can’t beat the person who won’t give up.
Plan your way out. How should you get out of your prison? Be it your work that you don’t like, save up and get out. Do what you love.
You will die
You will die, so as I am. We’ve been so comfortable, we forget we will eventually die.
We forget the most important thing in our life. We say we do work for our family, yet why we are not spending our precious time with them. Providing quality time with them.
That’s what happens when we live in lack and scarcity, our options are limited by what we have. We cannot spend more time with our family because we live in lack. Lack of money, lack of time, we’re busy being busy at work.
It’s not your fault to be born poor, it’s your fault to die poor. If you are born Poor its not your mistake, but if you die poor its your mistake
We live for the people we love, give them more of our time. They will appreciate it. Your child needs more of your attention, your parents and your grandparents wanted to at least talk to at times. You should give them some of your time they missed you, you know.
I want to tell you an idea, this idea was the goal I set for myself.
That is to live with abundance, a lifestyle inspired by the book millionaire next door. Where the common millionaires don’t live in mansions, don’t own luxury items. Living like your normal neighborhood.
Living a simple life and fulfilled life. How wonderful that life may be.
Taking a planned trip, doing a planned vacation everything is planned out. Everything is accounted for. Enjoying the rest of my life with the people I love. That’s the life I should have.
Do you think you should have that kind of life too? Comment below your thoughts.
