What do you look forward to as you age? Are you looking forward to be able to kick back and watch television 15 hours a day? From the morning as you awake until you go to bed? Do you wish to write a story of your life or perhaps start a new career? As a man ages, he begins to see that this earth is limited to who he truly is. We are an infinite being with a capped interest here on earth. Is life just all about making money and growing older? As we age, is there something else that we are supposed to learn? What is life really all about?
As you age, you must have goals. Many people think that a goal should revolve around money. However, we can clearly see that money is not everything from the death of Robin Williams. He had everything that a man could ask for and still committed suicide. What does this tell you? It tells me that life is more about accomplishing goals in one life and overcoming the obstacles. Never think about retiring. Only think about how you can better your understanding into your own goals and life mission. When a man or woman has a goal, he tends to want to live. When you lose your interest for living, I believe that the body begins to die. If we have a goal in mind, our life begins to take on new meaning? Should a man stop going to school when he is 25 years old? Is it really all about just getting a job? What if you get a job at 25 and have a family? Does it mean that a man stops living? Does it mean that his goals are over with now? Many people make the mistake of looking at money their whole life. Even if they retire with a few hundred thousand dollars, people often want to die because they have become bored with life and people. Do you ever want to dry up? Do you ever want to reach a place where you feel like life is not worth living anymore? What is your deepest desire or hunger? What can you learn today that was not a part of your life yesterday?
Your relationship with God should lead you. Let that be a landmark of where you are to be headed. Your life should be about accomplishing one goal after the next. Never let your age be a sign that you are getting to old to do something. In fact, many people do greater things when they are older. Both Abraham and Moses did greatness in their old age. Many new careers happen when a man or woman is older. You never can tell what tomorrow can bring you. Is life all about unhappiness and just paying bills? When you stop living, you stop accomplishing new missions. You can easily learn how to go after a goal if you put your mind to it. Don’t age in boredom. Instead, age with happiness and love. Over time, you will see that there is still much to achieve in this life. If you want a PHD, then go after it. If education is not your thing, then accomplish a different mission. It is all about learning and growing day to day. Make a goal and stick to it. If you just kick back in your life and relax, you will become depressed and think only about the past. If you have a present goal, you will be a lot happier. I think that people are happiest when they are actively working and participating in life. When a person becomes bored, they are often hard to be around and the thought of death often comes to them regularly.
A man of God, spends time with his heavenly father. He always remembers what God does for him and thanks him day and night. Praise him for all that he has given to us. Jesus forgives our sins. No man is innocent before the eyes of God. In my opinion, you need goals in your life.
