What is the purpose of life?

I believe that we all want te be successful, but what is success?
I believe success is knowing your purpose, sowing seeds that benefits others and growing to reach your maximum potential.

And being the best you is a life long quest, because success in life is not a destination but it is a journey of confronting the problems of life. That is the secret to life, because if one can go thro the pain of confronting the problems of life, one grows spiritually. And it is the painful side of life that transforms you into a diamond. There is no success without suffering.

Here are ten secrets or pointers to life that will help you on your journey in life to become the best possible you you can be.

Without the challenges of life, life would be boring, don't you think?

1. Everything you need is inside you to be happy
People or situations ouside yourself should not determine you state of joy.
"The joy of the Lord is your strength"

2. To grow to the best possible you you can be.
Life is like a classroom and we grow by making mistakes and learning from them.

3. Change is inevitable, so stop resisting.
To surrender to life's flow is to accommodate fear and to refuse to risk,choosing to stay in your comfort zone, so you rob yourself from growth that brings opportunities.

4. When you hate what is happening, you know that something life changing is happening - you are growing.

5. Your mind creates your experience of reality so learn to make your mind your friend.
Thought is creative and the world is as you see it. The way you think is the way you are and what you say you will have. Speak positive and ask usefull questions that will change the quality of your life. Make your mind work for you and not against you.

6. Fear will steal your aliveness - make your courage bigger than your fear because courage is controlled fear. "God has not given you're a spirit of fear, but a spirit of love, power and of a sound mind".

7. Love yourself before you can truly give or receive love
No one can add to your love and no one can ever subtract from your love. You already have an infinite supply - and one can only love yourself when you realize that God loves you and you receive His love in your life.

8. All relationships are your mirrors and people are your teachers
Your loved ones act like a mirror and they force you to look at everything about youself that is not loving and they stretch you into learning to love more.

9. True freedome comes from how you respond to life and not what life does to you.
You can learn to be happy in a situation that is not happy by managing the challenges to find the answer, because with God's wisdom anything is possible. You are the master of your destiny under the guidance of your intuition within

10. .Whatever the question - love is the answer
When you are in love with life, you will see the world thro the eyes of a lover, noticing the beauty in everything marveling at the magic of life seeing the good in everyone, looking for the love in everyone.

If you have fallen in love with the lover of your soul - who laid down His life for you - it will be automatic to fall in love with life.

If you don't get close enough to life - you will remain stuck where you are!
