Are you happy with your job? Are you looking forward to the future? Do you love the people who you surround yourself with? Are you motivated to do your best? If the answer to any of these questions is no… then hear me out. If you are just living life through the motions, are you really living? How do you live life to the fullest?
“Your time is limited, don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinion drown your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs
Are you putting any aspects of your life on hold for others? Your #1 priority is YOU. Uncover what you have been putting on hold and start working on it daily. Value your life and your time. Why are you letting someone else’s opinion of you control your own personal thoughts? Don’t let others opinions of you determine your own happiness.
People are entitled to think whatever they want, just as you are entitled to think what you want. What people think of you does not change who you are or what you are worth, unless you allow it to.
Life is too precious to spend it doing anything else. I dare you to begin doing what you really want in life. Spend your time on things that bring you fulfillment and happiness. We are not here to pay our bills and die. You are here to live life to the fullest. Start doing what you really want, not what you think other people want you to do.
Ask yourselves these questions?
Hang out with people who are positive, successful, and help you grow. Let go of the relationships that do not deserve you – that means negative people, dishonest people, people who are overly critical of everything you do and relationships that prevent you from growing. Let go of the toxic people in your life that do not support you. Surround yourselves with people who will bring out the best in YOU and those closest to you.
Get out there geographically. Go out, travel, and explore the world. Get on a road trip and visit as many countries as possible. Traveling helps learn who you are.
Studying abroad in London for one month helped me learn how to be more self-confident and self-reliant and also realize how small we are in this world. Meeting people from other cultures will teach you that the way you’ve been looking at the world isn’t the way everybody else does. Go explore and travel.
