A Change of Perspective

Are you under water?

Often, people attempt to live their lives backwards (or upside down, for that matter); they try to have more things, or more money in order to do more of what they want so they will be happier! The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do in order to have what you want. All this requires is a change of perspective, just like this image of a the pier at Huntington Beach in California.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do, than by the things you did do. So, throw off the bow lines, sail away from that safe harbor and catch the trade winds in your sails.

Explore, Discover, Dream…perhaps, this very instant is your time!

  1. Great commentary Erik. It’s taken me far too many years to figure out this simple equation but it’s true and it works. Love how you presented the image and it’s a perfect match for your write-up.

  2. Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the internet the simplest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about worries that
    they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top
    as well as defined out the whole thing without having
    side-effects , people can take a signal. Will likely be back
    to get more. Thanks
