So what exactly are you doing? Where exactly are you going? Are you happy? Why are you spending your day on something that makes you unhappy? When are you finally going to do something about it? It’s about time you started figuring out how you’re going to get to this place of happiness. I think you have thought enough about what you want. It’s time to do something, and follow through.
Stop complaining that life is hard. It’s the same for everyone. Just because someone appears to be living the dream life doesn’t mean they’re happy. It doesn’t mean they don’t have the same problems as you, simply dressed up in a different way. Stop wishing, for things and start working towards them. Nothing gives greater satisfaction than accomplishment. When you achieve, you believe!
Stop brainwashing yourself. You do realize that the biggest obstacle in your life is your own thoughts right? You’re the one who convinces yourself that you can or cannot do something, or what you are worthy of or not. With so much negativity floating around, why the hell well you do it to yourself? Just this morning as I was leaving the gym, I passed a woman in the parking lot, I smiled, she frowned. It was 6:45 in the morning and already she is miserable. But that’s her choice! Choose to be happy, choose positivity. Choose to move yourself into a better mindset.
Stop sabotaging yourself. No one gets in the way of your progress more than you. If you make excuses for why something can’t be achieved before you even start, then you can’t possibly expect to succeed. Why even bother trying? Isn’t the whole purpose in life to progress and grow? Do you believe everything you see on TV? So why would you believe every opinion that fills your head with doubt. Break free, come alive, and try! Try dammit just try!
Start believing. I know what you’re thinking. How cliché! Yea, yea, but hear me out! I’m not going to tell you that if you simply adopt the attitude, or subscribe to the philosophy, that the universe will simply plop whatever it is you want in your lap. We’ve all read “The Secret”, and that’s all fine and dandy, but it really caters to the most lazy of people, who want something for nothing. The reality is that you are going to have to do something. But before you even begin you must have faith that it will work out. Have faith in what you do, and where you’re going. Then and only then, maybe real miracles will appear in your life. Where there is a will, there is a way!
For God’s sake, don’t give up! Winners never quit, and quitters never win! I can’t remember who said that off the top of my head (but I’m sure a reader will remind me!), but truer words have never been said. So many people quit on their dreams just inches from the achieving them? What are you doing to do? It’s time you cut the B.S. and followed through on something. Don’t expect it to be easy, and don’t expect someone to do it for you. Bear down, clean off the plate and get ready for the pitch. When that curve ball comes, give it all you’ve got, and let your power carry you on the follow through.
