I came across this article and it really hit home.  

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. 
The other is as though everything is a miracle.  ~Albert Einstein

Opinions, beliefs and convictions vary from person to person. You can see a person's outlook from the actions that he takes, his health condition, the people he hangs around with, his attitude, his contributions, and his habits.

Quite a number of people have done outstanding things with their lives and made a difference. They served mankind and changed the way humans think and do things. Many others have changed their individual living standards and prospered.

The majority of people alive are doing their best to feel comfortable. They do wish for better things but they don't make much progress. They are afraid to move out of their comfort zones. They go about their routines. They are up in the morning, rush through the traffic to get to work, spend about eight hours at the workplace repeating the same tasks, rush back home, watch a lot of television, eat and then sleep, with some socializing in between. And they call that living.

Tips to Living Life to the Fullest

See, do and experience everything you possibly can

What you can do to experience more meaning and purpose is allowing your fascination to continue as you grow. Become conscious of what's happening within and around you. Sharpen your interest to learn, to know, to feel, to think and to act. Learn more about yourself through reflection. Know the reasons you do what you do.

Develop a sense of adventure. Give yourself the opportunity to get involved in activities that give you pleasure and joy. Find satisfaction from the things you do and stretch yourself to experience the best results.

Get to know people from different background and cultures. You will open your mind to new things that can help you understand and appreciate life and living.

Make progress each day

Write down a list of your goals and dreams. Plan out the strategies and take action. Do something every day without fail and keep on going until you reach each of the goals in your list. Develop self discipline.

Make your own choices and decisions. Put yourself in a state of mind that allows you to function at your best. Learn how to truly take control of your personal, professional and social life. Use your time in the best possible way.

Healthy living

The most vital aspect of living is being in good health. People who have almost everything but aren't healthy feel that life is not worth living.

Healthy living consist of eating well, regular exercise, proper breathing, being in healthy relationships, enjoying and loving life, absence of greed, jealousy and resentments and not addicted to toxic substances.

Manage your emotions

You can control how you feel. You can respond to adversity without breaking down or giving up. Let your emotions trigger you to have more love and living instead of anger and hatred.

Remain calm and composed in difficult situations. Add a sense of humor to your setbacks. Don't bring your anger to another day. If you are feeling lost, get in touch with your inner self.

Put aside a little quiet time each day to gather your thoughts and recognize your emotions that are blocking your progress.

Perform generous acts

Practice the act of giving. Listen to what others have to say. Speak kind words. Offer your smile. Give love and warmth. Speak the truth. Contribute your time and energy to bring joy to others.

Learn to feel grateful. See the beauty and positive intent in others and things. Send out positive thoughts and energy.

Focus on your current moment

Be happy with yourself at the present moment but continue to design a better future. Get yourself busy and get creative. Stay positive so that you will notice the blessings the universe has to offer.

Live by your personal values and philosophy. Dictate your own existence and choose to create your own happiness. Maintain balance in your relationships, career and personal growth so that you will feel in control.

Use your creative imagination

The potential of a new day is endless. Each new day is a new beginning and it gives you the chance to start fresh, to make your dreams come true and change your life. Don't waste it because once it's over, it's finished and you will suffer the consequences of your neglect.

Hardship, negativity and bad experiences happen. Use your brain, your mind and your creative imagination to make your vision becomes a reality. Focus on the positive side of things and create your own miracles.

At times you feel that you have to battle against people and circumstances. Many times you may get frustrated with the constant struggles that you have to overcome. Face, accept them and let go. Don't try to escape from any pressing situation.

Allow people and things to be what they are meant to be. You don't have to try and change the unchangeable. Learn to let go of anything or anyone who is pushing you down. Become bold enough to live your true purpose and rise above your mediocre existence.
