You only have one life, and you need to get it right the first time. You need to remember the facts of life. The facts are simple. There is no security, there are no survivors, and you cannot take it with you. Once you accept the facts of life, you become a free person. You are liberated to live your dreams. You make your life into what you want it to be, and make it count for something good.
People are always asking the wrong questions about sailing and driving around the world. The most frequent question is how much it costs to buy a yacht or an expeditionary vehicle to make the trip. The second question is about how much time it takes, and the third question is about the dangers of the trip. I understand why they ask those questions, but there are other more important questions on which they need to focus.
Questions like the following:
How many lives do you get?
If you aren't living your dreams now, when are you going to start?
How many years are you guaranteed to have perfect health?
How many years are you going to be alive?
These are the questions that really matter. It's easy to forget the facts of life.
Here are the facts of life.
1. You only get one life.
2. There is no security
3. There are no survivors.
4. You cannot take it with you.
5. There is virtually no reason that you should not be living your dreams.
On the wall above my computer, I have a large chart that shows the timeline of human history. It goes from neolithic and paleolithic times right up to the present. It shows the major empires that for a time spread across and ruled planet earth. Some of those civilizations lasted for more than a thousand years, and now they are gone. Billions of anonymous people had their shot at life and then disappeared leaving hardly a trace.
When I traveled in the Saudi desert, I sometimes found arrowheads lying in the sand. The last person who touched that arrowhead lived in neolithic times more than eight thousand years ago. That arrowhead reminds me of the shortness of life, and that I should be living my dreams.
Your short stay on planet earth is frighteningly brief. It's like a puff of smoke or the flash of a meteor in the night sky. The facts of life are very clear. Life is way too short to not be living your dreams.
Go ahead. Live your dreams and make every day count for something good.
Even though your life is short, there is no limit to how good it can become.

Social media has become unsocial. It has degenerated into a truth optional war zone in which people take sides. They draw lines in the sand, and if you are on the wrong side of their line, then a battle begins.
Social media does not have to be that way. That's why Positive Social Media exists. It's a politics and hate-free zone. If you are tired of unsocial media, and if you want to have a positive social media experience, you are at the right place. A positive social media experience is just a click away.
Although I like the feel of a paper book in my hand, I love trees even more. When people purchase an eBook, they actually save trees and save money as well. Ebooks are less expensive and have no negative impact on the environment. All of Dr. Dave's books are available at Save A Tree Bookstore. Visit the bookstore today and start putting good things into your mind. It's easy to fill your mind with positive things using eBooks. No matter where you are or what you are doing, you can pull out your smart phone or tablet and start reading. You can even use electronic highlighters and make annotations in your eBooks just like paper books.
