Get Out of Your Own Way

Wanna know how to live the “LG: Life’s Good” kinda life?

I stumbled across this clip (below) byย Steve Maraboli, and felt compelled to transcribe it.ย 


What advice would you have for anyone who wants to live life well?


Hang out with people who are dying.

Many people experience the travisty of regret in their end days. The realisation that nothing held them back, nothing was in their way. There is no one to blame but themselves.

What are you waiting for?

Don’t just sit by waiting for your life to happen. Don’t just hope that your dreams will come alive. YOU breathe life into them!

Don’t let your fear help you birth a well-nourished regret. Take action today. Be amongst the few who dare to follow their dreams.

The cemeteries are full of unfulfilled dreams. Countless echoes of “could have” and “should have“. Countless books unwrittten and songs unsung. Don’t choose to walk the well-worn path to regret.

Live your life in such a way that when your body lays to rest it will be a well-needed rest from a life well lived, a song well sung, a book well written, opportunities well explored, and a love well expressed.

There will always be fear. Do it anyway.

Let your courage inspire the world around you.

Nobody ever talks about the pyramids never built, the books never written, the songs never sung.

Stop letting your fear condemn you to mediocrity.


You dreams are a poetic reflection of your soul’s wishes.ย Be courageous enough to follow them.

There is no greater time than right now to experience the full power of your potential.

Make this the day you take the first step in the beautiful journey of bringing your dreams to life.

Today is a new day. This is your chance. Your moment. Dare to exhaust yourself with all of the opportunities of this day. All the opportunities that this day offers along the path to your dreams.

Live courageously bold. Live in such a manner than at the end of this day, year, precious life, you can hold your head up high, smile and be proud of a life well lived.
