(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)


“The Joy of Death?!” What? How can there be joy in death?

Sure, you know intellectually you’re going to die, but most people tend to try to ignore the fact. Put off thinking about it. Hope it never happens.

By doing so they lose a valuable resource. Death gives you a framework. It gives you the edges.

When you embrace the truth of the certain death of your physical body — irrespective of your religious or spiritual beliefs — you embrace the full arena in which you now live. You include the edges and within the edges is freedom. To create, to express, to live.

Like a frame helps define a painting, the space to create your life is enhanced by enjoying your awareness of death.


Coaching Point: Sets you free to get after your life, doesn’t it? With joy?
