Reflection #1: Our time on Earth presents a unique opportunity.

Our time on Earth presents a unique opportunity: a one-time chance to reflect ourselves. It is this truth that makes the following question, arguably, life’s most important question: Are you going to play role in shaping your life, or will you let the “wave of life” completely carry you?

Self-help gurus often claim to have discovered the formula for a successful life. Just follow steps A, B, and C, they assure you, and happiness will be yours. The problem is, success and happiness mean different things to different people, and following someone else’s path won’t necessarily get you where you want to be – precisely why we must be cautious of letting something, or someone else, completely carry us.
