Are you Dying or are you Living?

The meaning of death is to no longer experience life or for something to come to an end (ie. The road leads to a dead end or you are working in a dead end job). 

At heart I am a natural competitor. I have always wanted to win at everything I have done whether it be in sports, education, career advancement etc. To this day I am the same way however I have channeled it differently, I now compete against myself. I am my biggest opponent, I face myself everyday in the mirror and I compete everyday to beat the man in the mirror. 

In my career I have made some advances to put myself in a better position to be successful. Starting a new job or career can be stressful and scary for some people but for me I thrive in the face of adversity I love a challenge. Being challenged keeps me “alive” while most people are staying in their comfort zone “dying”. That’s right its called paralysis by analysis. The term refers to over-analyzing (or over-thinking) a situation, so that a decision or action is never taken, in effect paralyzing the outcome. A decision can be treated as over-complicated, with too many detailed options, so that a choice is never made, rather than try something and change if a major problem arises. A person might be seeking the optimal or "perfect" solution upfront, and fear making any decision which could lead to erroneous results, when on the way to a better solution.

Some people are content where they are in life but there are some people who are not and want to make a change but are scared therefore they “die”. They died because their dream or vision has come to an end or deceased. People become paralyzed in their own ways and never taking a chance and therefore stay stuck in one place dying each passing day because they fear change.

“When your dreams die so do you, live your dream and then you will experience life.”
