Finding your way
Monday, October 28, 2013 4:38 AM
Each of us has a unique fire in our heart for something that makes us feel alive. It's your duty to find it and keep it lit. You've got to stop caring so much about what everyone else wants for you, and start actually living for yourself.
The things you say you will deal with later rarely get done. It's time to get up and make an immediate difference in your life. It takes diligent effort to build something worthwhile. There is no shortcut to anywhere worth going. Have the courage and discipline today to do what is needed instead of simply what is convenient. The only way to get things done is to simply do it!
Despite the struggles you may be facing, never give up on yourself. Someday you will realize that everything worthwhile you've ever accomplished initially challenged you. That is exactly how it should be, because big challenges prepare ordinary people for extraordinary success. Adversity is never a waste of time if you learn and grow from it.
Don't ever settle for mediocrity or less than what you are capable of. If you do, you will never truly know exactly what you are worthy of. This may require you to start over and try something new. Sometimes in order to grow stronger, we need to walk away from old habits, relationships and situations to find something different that has more purpose and meaning.
We have all been placed on this earth to discover our own way and we will never be happy if we live someone else's idea of life. Don't be ashamed of how you feel. You have the right to feel any emotion that comes to you and to follow a path that makes you happy.
Having a plan, even a flawed one at first, is better than no plan at all. Try to figure out what it is you truly want. Even if you don't know your destination, do your best every day and work towards something that brings meaning to your moments. Let your intuition guide you. It's always all right to ask for directions if you are terribly lost. Sometimes the people in our lives are our best resources for helping us find our way.
Getting where you want to go in life is about setting goals and fulfilling your commitments. Know in your heart why doing so matters. It's not important if nobody else notices but you. This is your journey! It begins when you are born and the distance we each get to travel is a mystery.
Be productive every day! It's not what you do every once in a while, but what you dedicate yourself to on a daily basis that makes a difference in the end.
