The life mechanism, as described by Justin, is composed of several elements: life, success, action, motivation, goals, and attitudes. This post is about the first of these: life. Justin writes:
It has been my experience that the majority of people misunderstand the full meaning of the term “life.” They believe that life is the process of putting all the pieces together so that eventually they can arrive at the place where they will “live happily ever after.” This may sound unrealistic, but consider the numbers of people who are looking for the place called “security,” “success,” or “retirement.”
The fact of the matter is: Life is not a place of arrival; it is a manner of traveling. Life by its very nature means “change” and only those who are comfortable with change will understand and enjoy life. . . .
Life can be compared to a mountain stream. As long as the water is moving and flowing it’s beautiful. So it is with life. As long as it’s moving and flowing, life can be healthy and productive. . . . If you allow yourself to get into a rut or an unchanging routine, your life will become dull. Stay there long enough and you will put into place all of the circumstances that can bring on illness and even death. . . .
In reality, all of us are different today than we were yesterday. Tomorrow we will be different still–hopefully, better. We are changing!
