Instant Gratification or a Life that Matters

Instant Gratification vs. A Life that Matters

We live in a world of excess and lack, in so many categories.  Some of us have too much to eat or not enough to eat. Some of us have no clean water, others more than they need.  How can those of us with enough share with those who have not enough?

During this times it is vital for each of us to pay attention to what matters to us in the short term and the long term. What values, what skills what behaviour will help keep us safer, more engaged and more fulfilled?
Sonja shows us mastery with a classic pose. 

Mastery is a topic that is often ignored in a world filled with instant gratification.  It is all about the process, the language, the skills and the people we need to know and avail ourselves to to become better at, and in time become more successful at the many areas of life we have the opportunities to grow into.

How and with who will you gain added mastery in life? What area(s) do you want to work on? A life that includes a focus on mastery is a life that is enriched and deepened. Given  our very superficial life style in most of this current civilization we can all benefit from working towards growing and gaining added mastery. It will deepen your resilience.

Also mastery in life can help us feel safer. We gain a sense of control over parts of our lives that help us as uncertainty in other areas grows. Plus sharing can assist us develop and deepen out sense of passion and purpose, two keys to living a life with mastery. This can make it easier to share.

Sonja shows us a a very difficult pose.
Making the difficult look easy is often a sign
 of Mastery and a love of what one is doing.

How and with who will you gain added mastery in life? What area(s) do you want to work on? How will mastery help free you up so you can prosper and share?

One of my favourite ways of sharing is through Kiva. They offer several ways to share with others. They provide loans through our sharing and over time the small business owners pay back. They have an impressive 97.1% repayment rate. 

Mastery as a way of life offers many rewards. How, in what  and with who will you develop yours? Investing in mastery pays dividends for a life time.

So, until next time Imagine Yourself,
