What life is about

At one point or another, probably everyone has come to think about the meaning of life – what we are here for, what our mission is, and most importantly, what makes a good life.

Our culture and surroundings help shape how we look at things in life and what we value. That’s why concepts such as success can be interpreted in a lot of different ways. To some, success means making a fortune while others just want to live a simple life with their loved ones around them. Regardless of these differences, the underlying value and ultimate destination in life is HAPPINESS. It’s pursuit of happiness that makes us do what we do.

“What is life about” is an inspirational video from the works of Fearless Soul. What I really like about it is that it put things into the right perspective. Not only that, it also points out the right values, what to focus on and what really matters in life. Through introducing a number of guiding principles, such as kindness, life-long self-improvement, happiness, wealth, abundance and gratitude, it ultimately boils down to the ultimate purpose – “To be happy, to find happiness no matter what life throws at you.”

The Video Transcript

Life is not about proving anyone wrong,
life is about proving yourself right.

Life is not about competing against others,
but life is about competing against yourself
to make sure you are better than your previous self,
better than you were yesterday
to make sure you are growing every day,
developing, learning experiencing.

Life is not about being perfect.
It is about being happy.
Not all the time,
but every time you can.

Life isn’t about being right.
It’s about being kind.
When you have a choice to be right or to be kind, choose kindness, choose love.

Life is not about noticing the negatives.
It’s about creating such huge positives the negatives pale in comparison.

Life is not about you.
It’s about everyone and everything.
We are all connected and all sharing challenges and struggles.
Be kind, lift others up, give freely without expecting anything in return and the world will return happiness and Abundance beyond your wildest dreams.

Life isn’t all about money.
You can’t take it with you, so don’t stress about it.
This doesn’t mean you don’t deserve it or shouldn’t have it.
You can create unlimited abundance and use that to do good for others and yourself and you DO DESERVE IT, just don’t stress about it.

Money is great, but only when used with positive intentions.

Life isn’t about comparing yourself to others.
Let everyone else be exactly as they are while you focus on being the best you.

Your life is not defined by circumstances,
your life is not defined by what does or does not happen to you.
It is defined by how you react to what happens to you.
How you choose to react to the circumstances and events that arrive in your life.
It’s helpful to remember challenges are just tests.
Hard times are test and character builders.
Never lose your spirit, because it is in our greatest challenges that our greatest strength is formed.
That is when our character shines, right after the storm.

What’s really important is who you become through all of life’s challenges.
What you make and accumulate will never be a match for who you are and how much happiness you bring to this world.
Don’t ever forget that.

You are a miracle. This world is a blessing.
Life is a miracle.

 Life is really what you make it.

Live every day like you are blessed.
Live every day as if you are grateful to simply be alive.
Be happy, no matter what happens and life will be the amazing adventure it was meant to be.

Your purpose, and my wish for you is simple:
To be happy, to find happiness no matter what life throws at you.
