Thrive In life


Who wants to Thrive? and who wants to just survive? And is there a difference?

Meaning of Survive “To continue to exist”

Survive - Ride (out), weather, outlast, outlive, wear out, pull through, abide, continue, endure, hang on, hold on, hold out, hold up, last, lead, persist, stand, stick out, withstand

Meaning of Thrive “To grow, develop, and become successful”

Thrive - Flourishing, prosperous, prospering, growing, developing, burgeoning, blooming, healthy, successful, advancing, progressing, prolific, booming, profitable, expanding, fast-growing, strong

If I asked you who wants “To continue to exist” not many of us would sign up for that. If I asked who wants to “To grow, develop, and become successful” I’m sure we would have plenty of takers, and yet, are we doing what it takes to “grow, develop, and become successful?”

Nobody wants to just get by or just exist, but to THRIVE is to be deliberate! Where you want to THRIVE? That were you need to Invest!

If we highlight the areas we want to THRIVE in and then, work on, invest and influence those areas, eventually we will THRIVE. Is it a guarantee? No, but you can guarantee that if you don’t work on, invest and influence those areas nothing will change, and it will probably get worse. Life can be hard, there is no silver bullet, but we can choose to Thrive.

So …. HOW and WHERE do we THRIVE?

Among other things, I believe the foundation we need to enable us to THRIVE is through Knowledge, Understanding & Wisdom

1. Knowledge

You don’t know what you don’t know. There are things out there that if you learned it would help you to Thrive, not just survive!

What it takes – You need to be inspirable. No matter where you’re up to you need to be able to be inspired. There is hope for a better tomorrow, but it might be something you don’t know today!

To be inspired is to learn, change, develop, innovate, create and improve. This is fertiliser for Thriving!

Are you in a slump? Learn about what you need and lack. Learn about it! Work on it! Get Inspired!

2. Understanding

Understanding is having enough knowledge to make an informed decision. Understanding is knowing where you’re up to so you can apply what you know to improve your situation

What it takes - Know where you’re up to and where you want to go. Not everyone can thrive today. Some seasons are survival seasons, just doing enough to keep going, but you don’t want to live there.

What season are you in?

What it will take for your life to Thrive?

Not thriving today? What are you doing, so that tomorrow you can thrive?

3. Wisdom

Wisdom is taking the right action, the right way at the right time. Knowing what to do, how to do it and when to do it takes WISDOM. The right thing can be done at the wrong time

What it takes – Knowledge, understanding and……. patience

“Hope is not a strategy” If we want to Thrive, we have to do the right things at the right time and that takes WISDOM

Wisdom is having a plan and then taking steps required to outwork your plan

Where do you want to thrive? What is your plan? What’s your next step?


Where do you need to THRIVE? Invest there!

Knowledge, What do you need to learn?

Understanding, The best way forward, where you're up to and where you need to go

Wisdom, The right action, the right way, at the right time

It is our heart to see you all “THRIVE” and so I will leave you with this question, What would be one thing you need to invest in today to enable you to begin to thrive in those chosen areas of your life or organisation?

All the best,
