I was never very good at math. Because it surrounds us every day in all we do we can’t escape it. I remember trying so hard to memorize formulas for tests in HS and college. Get one wrong and the answers to almost every subsequent question will be wrong as well.
My HS buddy and first college roommate was a math guru. We took college Algebra our first semester. He flourished, I floundered. He went on to earn a Bachelors of Science in Civil Engineering as well as a Master’s in Engineering. I quickly found I was more adept at the creative pursuits; like writing.
But when it comes to life, I have found there are a couple of simple formulas that even I can remember.
The first is: C = C
It stands for Choices = Consequences. It doesn’t get any easier than this. It’s a reality check that lets you know you are where you are because of your choices. The good news is you can always change where you are by changing your choices.
The second formula is: The Past ≠ The Future
This one is extremely powerful. As I wrote about in a previous blog http://wp.me/p3nLpj-e4 no matter where you are in life, no matter what you’re going through, it won’t last forever. The best we can expect to do is set our sights high with bodacious goals and move forward with confidence. If you are not familiar with the term “bodacious” it’s a combination of bold and audacious.
Now go live your life to its fullest.
