Here’s the truth:

The purpose of life is not happiness, not even close.

The purpose of life is growth.
The purpose of life is meaning.
The purpose of life is aliveness.
The purpose of life is fulfillment.
The purpose of life is expansion.
The purpose of life is connection.

And the only way to get there is to lean the hell in, allow yourself to be engulfed by life and be inside of the Arena:

Instead of being a watcher.
Instead of being a dreamer.
Instead of being a bystander.

86,400 isn’t some worn out cliche posted on Instagram —it’s life or death.

As Seneca says:

It is not that we have a short time to live, but that we waste a lot of it.
