Bukowski once said, “Find what you love and let it kill you.” As morbid as it sounds, I’ve always believed that I’m going to die someday so why not live it to the fullest. By saying that I don’t mean I’m going to go out and be an idiot and get into dangerous situations. I’m just going to chill out and let life take me where it will. Working hard, surrounding myself with great friends, finding the love of that special someone, smoking that perfect cigar, and playing a few rounds of golf; sounds like I couldn’t ask for much more!

Right now I guess it’s just getting through day by day without letting all the bullshit minor inconvenient problems get to my head. I don’t know what happens after this life so I might as well just make the best out of every moment and just try to remember that even when shit is not going my way the worlds not out to get me.

Just keep throwing out good vibes and everything will work itself out. So I guess it’s that life’s too short to worry so do what makes you happy.

I think the most important thing is to make the people you love feel loved every day. Take the time to realize the many ways you are lucky on a daily basis because we take so much for granted. Be nice to people; you have no idea what they're going through. Devote yourself to what you do and do everything with all of your effort. Nothing is free and if you want something worth having you need to be willing to put in the time. Learn to laugh at yourself because sometimes it's all you can do.

I want to make other people's lives better, more entertaining. I want to make this planet we live on more efficient, less stressful. And ultimately, I want to make myself the best human being I can possibly be, as close as I can get to becoming the individual my Maker intended me to be. Life is the longest thing a person does, but when you really break it down it’s just a collection of moments pieced together to form one ideally beautiful segment. In the grand scheme of things, we only get to spend a short while on this planet, and while I spend my opportunity trying to be a man for others, I want to make each of those moments count and enjoy them as if they might be my last because you never know when your time is up. I want to make sure that when it’s my turn, I can look back and be proud of the legacy I have worked my entire life building.

I believe we're put in people's lives to help get each other through the day and to share in experiences. Live to love because love is the most powerful thing. Don't judge other people because you never know what hand life has dealt them. Don't waste your time waiting for other's approval; you'll only end up disappointing yourself. Cut out the negativity and live in the positive. Live without regrets; mistakes are just learning hurdles. Sugarcoating things does not help anyone. Remember it's not always about what people do, it's about how you react.

I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough." I'm not gonna say where this quote is from, because quite frankly, it's embarrassing. However, my philosophy of life revolves greatly around it. I was fortunate enough to find the love of my life at the age of 15, and she's been a huge part of the man I am today, and she'll continue to be my main motivator in my efforts to become the best possible person I can be. My philosophy.... Always be the best version of yourself for the people you love, because you never know when they're going to be gone. Love them. Learn from them. Inspire them and be inspired by them.

The most important thing in life is to find happiness and make an impact. Whether that’s travelling the world or escaping to a beach somewhere, being with family or making new friends. Find what makes you happy, what has a positive impact, and do it. Don’t ever stop.

When asked the question, "What is the meaning of life to you?" My first instinct was to google it. I didn't have an answer, or a good one at that. I've thought about this question for two days with no definite answer. Maybe the meaning of life doesn't have to be so complicated? Maybe it's whatever we choose it to be? Or for us as humans to give it a meaning. Life is about choices and decisions. I believe our choices and decisions we make lead us to the next stages in life. Sometimes it's about risk. I tried breaking down the question for myself, "What do I want out of life?" Happiness, fulfillment and success were the top things to come to mind. What's a life with no happiness? Things that bring me happiness is the smile on a child's face when I help them accomplish something. As a teacher I've felt no better accomplishment then seeing a reaction of a child who has just achieved something they have worked for because of my help. I was put here to serve people, give people too many chances and never ask for anything in return. The smile and joy that illuminates off a person after helping is enough satisfaction for me. Success isn't about the money or the car you drive, it's about reaching life goals you set for yourself and working towards them. So when asked, "What is the meaning of life to me?" I realize there is no right or wrong answer like I thought there was. Each individual makes their own meaning to life.

My philospohy on life is to just accept everybody for who they are and what they are. Never judge or not be okay with anybody's anything.

Believe in destiny. Take life as it comes.




Be better than the person I was yesterday.





Be successful.




I wake up every morning because people rely on me and I love the people I'm with.




The reason why I wake up would just be to experience things. Live to live. There are so many things that are out here that we don't know and if you don't try it you're not going to get anything. I feel like there's something missing if I'm not doing anything. I get up to try something new.




Whenever entering any relationship, friendship, romance, whatever, first, do no harm. If you do harm someone do everything possible to make it up to them.

At the end of the day, if you're happy that's all that matters. 




Generally, don't be a dick.




My philosophy is put God first, family second, and money third, in that order. Live your life, man. Just enjoy it because you only live once. But in the order I said, that's how I live life.




My philosophy is that every single thing in life is a learning experience and happens to you for a reason. You either learn from it, you learn your mistakes, or you grow upon that thing. You need to take it as a positive thing and just move on and grow from it.




Just ignore what other people think and do what makes you happy.




I would say it's all about better yourself. I'm a firm believer in making something of yourself. Regardless of what you're given, see what you can accomplish on your own. When you look back on it are you proud of it or is it something you can improve on.




Just to pass. In general, just pass.




An old football coach of mine used to say life's a marathon not a sprint. Sometimes shit happens and you just have to power through.




Put the people you love first.




Work for each other because we're all we have.




My life philosophy is to motivate others and make the best of myself. Make yourself better.




Life's kind of a shitty, raw deal and you shouldn't take it laying down. You should kick that fucker in the balls and steal his wallet.
