Live, Love, and Matter More in 2023

Written by Melissa Kessler, MA, PCC

This past year has been difficult for many of us. May 2023 bring all of us a renewed sense of hope and peace. Rather than making a new year’s resolution, I am setting an intention to embody high-performance coach Brendon Burchard’s slogan to “live, love and matter” more in 2023.

To live fully, we must be present. I have wasted a good portion of my life worrying about the future or regretting things that happened in the past instead of enjoying what I am experiencing in the present moment. The only time we can experience anything or take any action is NOW. We can’t do something yesterday or tomorrow; we can only do it in the present moment. I have gotten much better at being present over the past ten years, but I want to continually improve so I can live even more fully. For tips on improving your ability to be present, read my newsletter on the Power of Presence.

Love is the most powerful emotion there is. It raises our vibration, puts us in a positive emotional state, and undoes the harmful effects of the negative feelings that we experience. It’s also what makes life meaningful. Without someone or something to love, not much else matters. For tips on practicing gratitude, which elicits feelings of love, read my newsletter on the Secrets to Happiness and Well-Being.

We all matter. We all have a purpose in life and a reason for being here NOW. We don’t always think about the impact we have on others, but our words and deeds matter. I plan to be more intentional in what I say and do in 2023. I want to impact others in a positive way and have them walk away feeling better after interacting with me.

Brendon Burchard says that at the end of our lives, we will all ask ourselves, “Did I live? Did I love? Did I matter?” I want to be able to emphatically answer YES to all three of these questions, since this is really what matters most in life. May we all keep these questions in mind and live more intentionally in 2023 and beyond.

“What we do with what we have tends to be far more important than what we have in the first place.” – Brendon Burchard

“Gratitude is the golden frame through which we see the meaning of life.” – Brendon Burchard

“You have a clean slate every day you wake up. You have a chance every single morning to make that change and be the person you want to be.” – Brendon Burchard
