It’s amazing how often people get upset when their plans do not work out exactly as they had planned, when they feel that things have gone wrong. We seem to be hardwired to having success at every turn in life and having everything go smoothly and no hiccups along the way. Well, I got news for you! Life does not turn out as planned, but goes exactly in the direction we need to grow, and everything is as it should be at every turn in life.

It’s not a natural law that every new born is healthy; it’s not a law of nature that man’s plans run smoothly all the time; it’s not a natural law to be successful all the time; or rich; or whatever you dream of! Wake up!

It’s here and now you live, and life is like the sand in the hour glass, it slips away. Try to enjoy every moment and live every moment. That way your life becomes a greater success than you could ever imagine. A well lived life is your greatest challenge.

So when things do not turn out exactly as you would like, try to find what you can learn from that. How it can help you move on and how you can become more alive and living.

It’s a little bit like that bucket list, what do I want to do before you move on from this life?
Do those things and enjoy and live! You will be amazed how much more alive and young and strong you feel.

Being grateful, for that is easy.

Author's Bio: 

Agustina Thorgilsson, an expert in industrial psychology, began her career in 1979 as a consultant for internal affairs, communication and human resources development (HRD) with AB Volvo in Sweden. In 1988 she became the director for the Institute of Management Training, a division set up by the Ministry of Finance servicing all of Iceland’s public sector. She later founded a management training company that advised both public and private sectors on strategy, management and HRD issues, before completing a Masters degree in clinical psychology which led to the founding of Life-Navigation in 2005. Agustina’s vision is to help making the world a better place by showing people how to transcend even the most difficult life-experiences individuals can possibly encounter and move towards peace as a race. She had learned to use her intuition, insights and little used old knowledge known to man. By tapping into this endless reservoir of information and understanding clinical psychology, the evolution of the Life-Navigation System began. Agustina’s successes have shown that Life-Navigation makes an enormous difference.
