What does it take to survive? Many have offered suggestions, but there is only one choice to chase in this life in order to have a fulling existence.The choice is to live to survive or live to thrive. Living life to survive is an heroic venture to pursue, yet not without its treacherous challenges. One is left with the task of defending oneself indefinitely against fierce frightful attacks many sinister in nature. Clinching with all effort to conquer adversity barely making the cut towards a safe healthy existence. The soul gradually becomes weak and fragile to the wounds of this warfare.Clinging to that hope that one can infact slay the demon within their consciousness in desperation to expel self-doubt an undertaking that becomes futile. In the tangle of unrelenting combat one is left in survival mode consistently barely making the mundane tasks of daily living. Just getting by each day is like a burdensome weight in one’s quest towards survival with life’s challenging circumstances remaining persistent and ever present.
The only other alternative is to switch to surviving mode and embrace a thriving existence that does not rely on your own strength to maintain stability. In fact it will be the lack of any visible strength that one is able to thrive in life.This is do to the fact that in order to thrive you must first reject your ability to survive. It is throwing away any ability to survive that thriving is now an aspiration that can not be dimmed by self doubt or a belief of one’s inability to succeed.Success can only be maintained by making a clear choice to thrive in life not just merely survive it. Traveling through life’s challenging circumstances with a positive attitude and confident outlook on situations will unlock the keys to living a rewarding life. Bottom line is if you want to live a fully productive lifestyle make a choice to thrive within life not just merely survive it.
