What do people who live well do differently? What do the people who finish well do that others don’t seem to do? What do men and women do that so many others seem to ignore or pay little attention to?
People who live well live in the present instead of the past. Yes, they may have had hard times in the past but they learn to move on. They may have experienced recent successes but they don’t keep reminding others of the way life used to be for them. People who live well learn to lean into the future while they learn to navigate the present.
People who live well don’t keep making the same mistakes that have derailed so many other people. Satan would like for us to believe that we can play with fire and somehow everything will be all right.
- A young married woman is paying a lot of attention to a male co-worker who is single. She reminds herself that she has done nothing wrong and she is just enjoying the mutual attraction.
- A college student roams through porn sites nightly. He tells himself that he is really not a bad person and no one is getting hurt.
- A woman in her 40s has been taking office supplies from her work and bringing them home. She tells herself that the company has other areas of waste and they sure won’t miss a few items.
People who live well learn from the mistakes of others.
