There’s something I’d like to ask you.
What comes to mind when you hear the term remarkable life? A successful career or financial freedom? Maybe a remarkable life means a nice home or car, or two kids, a cat and a dog. Maybe it means the promotion you’ve got your heart set on, or that your kids make the basketball team.
Think about those examples. Do you notice the similarities? They all have one thing in common: something must be achieved or purchased or birthed in our lives before the remarkable part can kick in.
So I have to ask. Do we really want to place contingencies on life? Do we really want to impose limits before we even get started?
Years ago, my priest gave a homily, or sermon, on the if onlys of life:
If only I could get a raise
If only I had a bigger house
If only I could meet someone new
If only I had a job I loved
If only. Then my life would be remarkable.
What if you stopped living in if onlys and started focusing on remarkable everyday?
Until next time,
P.S. What if-onlys have kept you from remarkable? Shoot me an email at email@example.com and let me know. Let’s work together and create remarkable now!
