Seeking Knowledge and Wisdom
In order to have the life you want it is necessary to seek wisdom and knowledge. Without these then there is no light to follow and no growth can be attained.
Wisdom does not come in the form of a newspaper or the evening news. Wisdom comes from the ability to watch, listen and experience and to take note of each sensory. The media outlets just bombard us with negative junk that is not necessarily true.
Reading and listening to books and recordings that will bring about positive change in your life and help you to understand other people is the wisdom that will make your life fulfilling and worth living.
Making choices and moving forward. You can not change the past but you can sure improve your future by making a choice to change.
Select your friends with care, you are who your friends are. Their opinions and habits are shared with you. Look around, if your friends are perpetually making poor decisions, that will also reflect on you because of your association.
Choose to associate with people who you admire and respect. If you hang with a pigeon you will be destined to always be looking for a hand out. If you hang with eagles you will learn to soar.
If you only counsel with your self you can only draw conclusions from your own experience, when you counsel with the wise you will include their experience and that could open up a whole new world to you.
If you are the smartest and most fit person in your group of peers, then you need to add some people that are "better" than you, more fit, wealthier, etc. because these are the people that will make you reach higher and want to do more in life.
Be wise and serve others, by having a servants heart you will realize a satisfaction that can never happen when only serving your self. People who serve are popular and are wealthy beyond our monetary standards. As you serve others, their wisdom will be shared with you. The person that serves the most grows the fastest.
Develop a servants heart and do not be distressed when you need help and there no one there, but be thankful when you can help. Give a helping hand with no expectations of every receiving anything in return.

Just by doing these three simple things and making a choice to change you could transform your life into a thing of wonder.
In times of distress life just seems like it is going to be a very long ride. Seeking change and transforming the way you think will cause you to consider that maybe life is way to short and times-a-wasting. We only have so much time and wasting one minute of it is a sin. We are on a count down from the moment we are born.
