Life is short. You have 100 years; that equals only 1200 months on earth. That is 36,000 months or just over 1 million days. It is finite. For me and maybe you, around half of this life is behind me. Yet, you can impact this moment and make a difference going forward. Have you asked yourself lately, in the words of Mary Oliver, "What will YOU do with your one, wild and precious life?"
A few weeks ago, I squeezed in lunch with my friend Karen Bernardi, successful realtor. Karen suggests we all play "The Perfect Game." Whatever happens in your life, it is perfect. You may not know why it is perfect. It happened, you can't change that. What you can change is your interpretation of the situation, your attitude, and what you will do going forward. Some folks may see the situation as less than perfect, yet you have the choice to interpret it in a positive way and to build from this moment. Paraphrasing Deepak Chopra, put your 'attention' on this moment and your 'intention' on the future you are creating.
So, next time someone asks you how things are going, here is the answer that allows you to win in life. Things are perfect!
