Imagine truly living your life, doing what you love daily with the freedom to do whatever you want whenever you want.
Throughout my life, I couldn’t understand why people complained about their 9-5 and their inability to do what they wanted to do when they wanted to do it. I wondered where they learned that they couldn’t control their life. In my mid-twenties I figured out that people are controlled by someone, and that someone is themselves. The sad reality is that people listen to external sources who are living an average life, so naturally, they start thinking as the average do.
What others think plays a major part in why most are not living a life worthy of the limited time we each have. Fear they will fail and find themselves embarrassed, fear they will be wrong, fear someone won’t value their opinion or fear of the unknown. But here’s the truth, fear is not real. Danger is real, yes, but fears only exist in the mind and the mind can be changed. Answer this. Is there some law of nature that is preventing you from reaching your dreams or is it simply fear? If you find that there is a law of nature stopping you, let’s talk and I’ll help you find a way around it because there is almost always a way.
Here is a question for you to take a second to think about.
Are you more afraid of what others think of you than living the one and only life here on earth to it’s fullest extent?
Excuses are another thing stopping many from reaching their dreams. I had to overcome both fear & excuse. To some extent, I didn’t care what people thought of me, but there was a little insecurity I had to overcome before I could create my dreams. Excuses were the last thing I overcame and that was only in late 2017 at the age of 27. Excuses exist predominately because of laziness. To reach your dreams you must stop with the excuses, go out there and get what you want. When people give me excuses, the answer is always “and”…???
You need to own your life and stop blaming others. If you’re still blaming others you are immature. Yes, bad things happen to you but your response is what will make you grow, keep you where you are or even push you back.
With the removal of fear and excuses, you’re ready to take steps towards a life lived on your own terms.
