What is your biggest regret in life? How do you stop living with regrets? Are you doing your best every day, or are you settling for mediocre? Why are you working, living, and existing? In this first episode of "Life Stories," we will talk about its meaning. What would you do differently if you were just starting a new life? What would you do differently in life?


Hello, and welcome to another short episode of "Life Stories."

This one has a question in the title, and you got to be prepared to answer yourself honestly! What are you doing all this for?

Before doing that, relax, take a deep breath, relax your body, and free your mind. Let your body float for the next couple of minutes, and be prepared, to be honest with yourself.

Are you doing your best every day? Or are you settling for mediocre?

Do you remember why you started in the first place? Are you the best at what you do, or are you the second-best, the third-best? Is that enough for you? Do you remember when you dreamed of being a champion, a king? Are you working on that, or are you talking about that? There is a big difference between being the world champion and wanting to be the world champion. The difference is in the dedication and the working hours. Are you paying the price for success, or do you just want to work 8 hours a day?

Do you love what you do? If not, why are you still doing it? Do you push yourself, or do you let others push you?

Are you doing what you are doing because you want attention, or are you doing it because you are hungry and never satisfied?

There is a story that every successful and happy person on this planet realizes at a certain point. This is the story of why they started and why they are doing what they are doing. It's different for each of them, and it is different for you. The one thing that the stories had in common was the following.

They all fighteth with their whole heart. They were always hungry! They started doing more and talking less. Because sometimes, you just have to work in silence and let your success speak for you.

We are ending with this! There once was a man who always talked about how one day he will leave the village and become a big name. How one-day people will know his name, and people will wish to be in his place. Months passed, years, decades, but the man was still in the same place, doing the same job, talking the same thing. Do you know what his name was? No, neither do we!

Don't be the shouting fool who lives to impress others. You never will succeed. Never. Even if you do, you still have failed. So, we ask you once more. What are you doing this for? Take a deep breath, take a deep look into your current way of life, and ask yourself. What am I doing this for? You will be surprised at how hard finding your true answer is.

Are you doing whatever you are doing for attention and recognition? Are you doing it to receive validation?

Or are you doing it to better yourself and stay true to your goals and morals?

This episode is about to end, but don't hurry on getting back to your day-to-day struggles. Stop for 5 minutes, and think. What I'm I doing this for?

Thank you for watching, and be sure to subscribe never to miss another episode.

And until next time,

Keep on Rising.

Keep on Rising,

I want to highlight some good positive news that happened recently. We, as humans, rarely focus on the positive I think it will be a good idea if we focus on some of the not so ugly things on our planet. One might even find them fascinating and charging.
