Before starting each new day, have clarity on what is it that you will do. Don’t allow laziness, boredom or familiarity hold you down. Be clear on your goals and make them happen.
Hone your strengths and practice them daily. It can be tedious – doing same things again and again. But it can also be joyful – practicing what you know and making your living by doing it. Decide that you will not slave to impulses. That when you know what is it you need doing, you’ll simply do it and create new value. Value that will help improve your and lives around you.
You should use your feelings as a loose compass rather than a certain guide on the path of happiness. Sometimes temporarily setbacks are way better than instant success for your long term well being.
Feeling of disappointment is a great gauge – showing you the need to change something. But that’s where it’s utility stops. There is no point in wallowing and complaining. The true happiness starts only when you are dealing with problems, not reliving them.
In a world full of creation it’s easy to feel as if nothing you do truly matters. Like you are a cog in a rusted machinery of today, spinning around without much purpose.
But you are making a difference. No matter how small, your influence is changing the world. Find a way to make your actions positive and act as if their impact is already great. And while working, remember: there are no unrealistic dreams, only unrealistic deadlines.
If you are not struggling, you are not improving. If it’s too easy, you need to fight harder. If it’s too hard, you need to rethink your approach. And once you are in the struggle zone you can handle, enjoy and keep fighting. Get better.
Do not allow your life to become too hard, but also don’t allow it to become too easy. Figure out meaningful work for yourself and once you do have plan – follow it. Own it up, figure it out and forever keep yourself on path of improvement.
We are all here because countless others sacrificed. Your 2 parents, 4 grandparents, 8 great grandparents… the number grows to encompass numerous people and circumstances that aligned to bring you here. So, what is +1 on top of all that?
But when asking for help, know what it is that you will offer in return. Be prepared to give so you can receive. Build yourself and your talents, so that when the right moment comes – you will have plenty to give… and plenty to receive!
We live in a busy, exciting world. Every moment is filled with opportunity to use it in variety of ways. There is always new music to listen. New videos to watch. New articles to read. New thoughts to consider.
Being able to do something doesn’t mean you should do it. Instant gratification will get you nowhere. Follow the plans you’ve made for yourself, disregard noise, and guide yourself to true happiness.
We all are working on making the world a better place. We are all struggling. As long as there is gap between your dreams and reality – it’s good. It means there is something to strive toward. It means you are filled with hope and desire to do better.
And you can do better. You have it in you. Don’t let struggle knock you off your path. Suck it up, reload, repeat. And enjoy.
