Live the life you want

I recently read a story about Steve Jobs and his final days.

Essentially, on his death bed, Jobs realized the “non-stop pursuit of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me.” He continued that “God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions brought about by wealth”

As I am now in my 40s, I’m spending more and more time contemplating how I live from this point forward.

I’ve made some great choices and I’ve made some that were not so great.

Now, as I reflecting on my collective experience, I realize I have the choice of how I live my life.

I know my kids will only have one childhood and I will be an integral part of it.

But how I decided to spend time with the people outside of my family, is where the real opportunity lies to proactively live the life I want.

To pursue entrepreneurs and companies doing cool, innovative things with purpose.

To continue to express the need for humanity to provide food, water, shelter and security to every living person.

To meditate and be present in everything and every relationship I pursue.

Love can travel a thousand miles. 

Life has no limit. 

Go where you want to go. 

Reach the height you want to reach.

 It is all in your heart and in your hands.

– Steve Jobs

    I love it! Been thinking about life too. I remember something you told me a long time ago when I was talking about my next brass ring and what I wanted to achieve. You asked me, “Have you ever condisdered that you have already made it?”

    Brad, we both lost our mom’s so young. I’ll continue being happy to be alive and help those around me to feel loved and appreciated.

    My perspective: I hope I make a difference and make others feel happiness. Keep up your positive vibes!! Love you and the Harrison clan
