Transitioning is not easy because it forces us to make choices – yes to move on and make the most of it or not. For me it became more of thinking if I move on, can I thrive or am I just surviving. Thriving to me seems richer beyond the physiological and safety needs which Maslow Law describes as our basic needs which must be met. Thriving moves us closer to our higher selves and as Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs describes “Self-actualization” when we are reaching our fullest potential. (Click here To read more about Maslow’s Hierarchy).
You may be forced to transition – loss of a job, loss of your health, loss of your mobility or something else. Or you may be transitioning so something else because life changes – all the children are grown or you simply are tired of doing the same old thing each day.
As a cancer survivor, health and mobility forced me to rethink life. I’ve come to learn that I am not interested in just surviving but Thriving. I share this because I believe every human being is meant to THRIVE not Survive — Animals and plants survive but Humans Thrive because of our higher intelligence, free will, and ability to think creatively to develop choices. I challenge you to be a Thriver in all you do – your personal life, careers and communities.
Our goal is to share thoughts, perspective, and our own personal lessons learned. We will share quotes, ideas, and resources that hopefully will help you in your journey.
We can make a choice each and every day if we are to survive or to THRIVE. I truly believe it is our God given free will to decide. So the next time you wake up in the morning, decide to THRIVE boldly. THRIVE – “To prosper in any business; to have increase or success.” (Brainy Dictionary).
