“How does it get any better than this?”
“What else is possible?”
– Ricky Williams
Earlier this week I was listening to a TED talk by Ricky Williams, and he ended the talk with the two questions above. I shared them with people, and turned to the internal to reflect on them. My thought process around these questions focused on how I could include these in my life and why I might incorporate them into my life.
Starting today, I am going to include these questions into one event that unfolds in my life everyday. I have been incredibly blessed over the last year of my life, and during the same time frame I have slacked in certain areas that were positive in my life. I have not ate as healthy, I meditate less on a daily basis, and in general have just become extremely comforatable. I do not want to just be comfortable, but I want to excel on a day-to-day basis.
This brings me to the why. My life has become full of things that bring me happiness, and through this experience complacency has crept into my active life. The importance of incorporating these into my life is to encourage growth and expansion, not only in “bad” experiences, and more importantly the “good.” I truly belive when you are coasting you are going down hill. My goal today is to use these questions to stop me from coasting.
Affirmation: Growth is how nature keeps things alive. I grow and live life to the fullest.
Call to Action: Use these questions at least once today, and let us know in the comments how it goes.
