Three Keys to Living An Epic Life

Posted by Herman Najoli on August 18, 2010

There are many different traits that are essential for a better life but when it comes to truly winning in life, there are three crucial traits that one must embody. These are knowledge, passion and humor. Let’s take a quick look at each of these: 


Knowledge is the key quality that enables a man or woman to realize his or her true personal potential. Knowledge sets one apart since it enables you to demonstrate higher capacities and capabilities. The difference between one’s current state and a future desired state is normally bridged by the quality of one’s knowledge. Knowledge lifts you up from the pit to the pinnacle of your desires. 


Passion separates between the committed and the non-committed. Passion is the one essential quality that enables the realization of dreams and desires. Passion births zealous commitment in an individual and enables him or her to stay focused on the quest for a better life. All revolutions throughout the history of mankind have always been brought about by passion individuals.


Humor is an essential trait because it provides us with the motivation to continue striving through situations that may not fully be desirable. Having a sense of humor about life is essential. Fun, excitement, enjoyment, laughter and happiness are key pieces in teh puzzle of life. Life offers us many unique experiences and challenges. Humor enables us to ride these unique experiences and challenges without losing motivation.

    Great thoughts. Perhaps I could be so bold as to add two more…

    Integrity – a lost character trait in the world. Truly great individuals have a strong sense of integrity.

    Risk – it doesn’t matter how much you know or how passionate you are about something – if you don’t step out, take the risk and have a go – you might never live the EPIC life you think can.

    I loved this.. sometimes it more important to have humor first Herman, this world is so crazy at times, but if we laugh first, than we see God in it.
