Survive or Thrive?

Hand 4545748 1920What gets you out of bed every morning? What is the impetus for putting your feet on the floor?

Aside from having to pee, what drives you to get up and go?

Is it to survive or is it to thrive?

Survival is a great skill to have. It helps keep you alive until you find what makes you thrive.

You may say you have no goal but you really do. You just may not have identified it yet.

Survive or thrive is a great place to start. Wonder why you continue to survive and you’ll get a glimpse of what makes you thrive.

The book of Ecclesiastes lets us know there is a time to reap and a time to sow. And some old Greek philosopher told us to live to fight another day. Both are prescriptions to survive until it’s time for us to thrive.

I’ve had some people ask me why I exercise on a regular basis. My pat answer comes from my Navy days. I say, I’m attempting to stay “topside.” That attitude helps me survive and gives me the energy when it’s my time to thrive.

Answer the question: “What gets me out of bed every morning?” and you’ll find your motivation for living. Once you’ve identified it, make it your mission to survive until you thrive. Adopting this mindset is the magic elixir that keeps you feeling alive.

All the best,
