I have a simple message to send to you today. These 4 principles are incredibly powerful if we live by them. I myself at times have lived as if these principles were not in existence. These simple life principles work well no matter the situation, age, belief system, race, or gender.
Life has its ups and its downs. There are times when life is unfair. Things happen that we often cannot explain. Still, life moves forward. New goals are set and old failures become a distant memory. If you find yourself in the current windmill of life, then remember these 4 simple life principles.

1. The past is done. This is true for both failures and successes. It is good thing to know that we can leave our failures behind. Failure is an even and not a person. That is why your failures do not have to stay with you. At the same time, our successes are in the past too. We may enjoy the benefits of our successes in the present, but there is still a need for us not to live in the past.
2. The future is not guaranteed. Like it has often been said the only thing we can count on in life is change. I have met with people right after being laid off after 20+ years. They often have this look that they never expected change to happen. The sooner you can embrace that things change the better off you will be. The better question to ask is: “what is changeless about you?”
3. The present matters. The present day is a precious gift from God. It is something we ought not to take lightly. It matters how you spend your day. Seize each day by following your passions and surrounding yourself by people that you love.
4. Your day matters. It is personal. It really matters what you do with your time, effort, and energy. Not only is the present important, but what you do with the present is just as important.
Those are the principles you live by. If we could all live with these principles, we would have a life that:
- offers more forgiveness
- has less worry
- takes more risks
- gets more done
