13 things to rage about.

Rage, rage against the light.

Do not go gentle into that good night,

Old age should burn and rave at close of day;

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,

Because their words had forked no lightning they

Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright

Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,

And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,

Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight

Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on that sad height,

Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.

Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Dylan Thomas

Lately I have been hearing this classic poem by Dylan Thomas a lot, I bet you have too.  I have heard it at funerals and even in television commercials.

While each day brings all of us closer to the dying of the light, how we live our lives daily before that date with eternity is the most important challenge we all face. It’s not how our life ends that matters but how we live our lives.

How will you live your life and what do you want other to remember about how you lived it? What will be your legacy and life story? Believe it or not you can use rage in a positive way to motivate yourself and others to greatness and to make a difference. Here are just a few ways.

  1. Rage against mediocrity.

  2. Rage against intolerance.

  3. Rage against ignorance.

  4. Rage against poverty.

  5. Rage against bullies.

  6. Rage against inequality.

  7. Rage against tyranny.

  8. Rage against bad habits.

  9. Rage against prejudice.

  10. Rage against deceit.

  11. Rage against violence.

  12. Rage against suffering.

  13. Rage against immorality.

Don’t wait until you are in the twilight of your life to rage. Rage now.
