Simply Good Life - Discover Your Life Goals | You Are Unique | Be Thankful

In the next few weeks, I’m going to send some thoughts on how to stay calm in difficult times like these.

Discover Your Life Goals
Today, I’m going to show you the easiest way to discover your life goals.
Go to the website below. It’ll take you through the process of creating your own eulogy with the values and accomplishments you want to be remembered for after you die. The process can be painful, but it gives clarity on what small steps we can take today to reach these big goals.
I spent about 20 minutes using this guide to write my own obituary and when I was done it gave me my personal mission statement to create the legacy I want to leave behind. It starts like this:
“The year is 2063… Adam, you passed away peacefully [….] Your best friend takes the microphone, pauses and speaks: All of us that knew Adam well, thought of him as a …. person.”
Shocking but extremely powerful!
It’s free, anonymous and no registration is needed.
You Are Unique
Now that you know your life goals, start working on reaching them. Whatever it is you want to offer the world, do it now.
There’s no-one on earth who has your unique set of skills and experiences. You have something to offer the world. Share it with the world. Someone out there needs it. 
What about becoming a freelancer. A freelancer only needs 10-20 clients to make a living. It’s not impossible!
Coronavirus - Most Powerful Pictures
The Coronavirus continues to disrupt life around the globe. Here are the most impressive pictures from this past week.
Strength Training
Starting at the age of 40, we lose 1% of our strength every year. This means we lose 40%-50% of our strength by the time we are 80. However, being active slows this process down. It is still possible to improve our muscle mass through strength training even into the 90s. It’s never too late to pick up a set of dumbbells.
Quote I Love
“Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot at least, we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful.” Buddha
There’s always something to be thankful for.
Right now, we all are separated from our families, from friends, from things we love. By being separated, we start realizing how much we miss them. The lockdown teaches us that there’s always something to be thankful for. Personally, I see more clearly what is important to me.
Gratefulness is the key to all happiness in life.
Have a great week-end, all!
