The art of living is full of ups and downs, pains and aches, good days and bad. Keeping in mind that life is never still and the next day may be full of unexpected set backs can allow you to focus on being cautious for your quality of life.
If you ask people who have succeeded in their professional vocation, it’s likely that they’ll tell you that it took a ton of effort to weather the storms. The same principle of putting in the effort to weather the storms can be applied to your quality of life.
Getting through the storms and being able to sustain the drought or the winter is real. Jim Rohn calls it the seasons of life. Jim explains the seasons this way: spring, summer, fall and winter are used as an analogy for the different stages and occurrence in our lives. From harsh winters to beautiful summers. We all love the summers, but there may be times in life when winter can last two to three times longer than the summer.
So let’s say you’re in a winter season for your quality life. What do you do?
When times are tough, you have two options: find a way to make them better, or do nothing. I recommend using your will power to find a way to make quality of life better.
Where there’s a will, there’s a way. I would not recommend walking away from the winter season in search of summer. Summer will come, but it comes after the spring. If you walk way from the tough times, you may be haunted later in life with regret. Regret is no walk in the park on a hot summer day.
One way to become more willful in making your quality of life better is is to become more cautious. Being cautious means you use good judgment and are careful in practical ways. For example, consulting with health care providers for their professional opinion.
As you weather the winter seasons in life, become disciplined enough to manage the most important tasks for your quality of life. Use good, better, best judgment with your resources. Always be cautious of the most minor details that may affect your wellbeing. Become wise with your ways.
Don’t ever underestimate the most (seemingly) insignificant decisions that you need to make, it’s the little things that make us whole.
