Whats stopping you from living life on your terms and having everything you want?
Take a minute right now to answer that last question.
Ain’t easy eh?
You’d probably be lying to yourself anyways.
You see its hard as hell to identify exactly what it is thats holding you back. But something is, you can feel it.
Think about this, when you’re in a public space, like you may be now are you sitting the same way you would be at home alone?
Probably not. Thats because you’re not truly comfortable. If you were 100% comfortable you would act the exact same way regardless of the situation. But you don’t.
Thats one way you’re being limited. In some way, you act differently because of social pressure, now think about how that could be influencing your thoughts and decisions.
Imagine what you could be right now had you never succumbed to what captures the majority of us, the allure of following the herd. The allure of being accepted and not having to worry about negative judgement.
Well I got news for you friend. You’re trapped. You’ve dug yourself a hole and you can’t climb out of it.
But I’m about to hand you a ladder so you can climb up out of that pit and start living as YOU. Free of any that social crap that clouds your thoughts, and poisons your sense of self.
You see once you identify exactly WHAT you want, WHY you want it, and EXACTLY how you plan to get it, suddenly other people start to fade.
Suddenly the weak relationships and fair weather friends begin to disappear.
Suddenly they’ve been replaced by PURPOSE.
That magic 10 dollar word thats touted as sacred these days.
But I bet when you hear it you think, “What if I could have purpose? What if I truly loved what I did, and who I was for doing it?” But thats just a thought, because you don’t take action.
Because you’re scared. Because taking action and becoming someone with drive, someone with purposes reshapes your identity and moulds you into something STRONGER.
I was once as you are now, scared of taking control of my destiny and shaping my life to the way I wanted it to be.
But I found my way out. I got tired of dealing with people I didn’t like, I got tired of dealing with dissatisfaction in my life, and bone crunching weariness from the stress and anxiety that brings.
Escape brother, and find your way to a better way of life. To a stronger cast of you. To the inner strength you’re gradually realizing you have, and have always had.
Rise, awaken from the ashes and cast off the shackles that oppress you, societies chains that restrain you and become a shot arrow honed for its target – allowing no buffeting winds or meaningless obstacles to stop it.
You feel that energy? Thats just a taste of what you’re capable of. Release it. Allow the flood to wash over you.
You pumped up yet? Me to.
Now we take action.
Right, grab a piece of paper or open up a document on your computer.
Write down in no specific order, the five things you’ve always known you wanted.
For me its;
What’d you get? Doesn’t matter, thats for you not me.
What next? We make a plan.
How? Simple, take the things you want and define an ideal path for how you can get them. It doesn’t have to be realistic, because if you want it badly enough you’ll persevere anyways.
Freedom? Thats dependent on wealth and no time constraints something running my own business will help with. Good thing I’ve already started it, as you should start that one you’ve had in the back of your mind for a while now.
Relationships? On it. I’m honing my social skills right now and by better getting to know myself I’m able to connect more deeply with those I care about and easily move on from those I don’t.
Adventure? I’m going away with the military in a month. Afterwards I’m doing a travel exchange which lets me take a semester worth of classes on another continent.
Health? I hit the gym 5x a week, eat like a hermit and don’t have any bad habits.
So I’ve made some progress but thats because I played this game a while ago and got started.
I used to have no business, an abysmal social life, a weak high fat body with a crap diet to match and a life I dreaded waking up for. But I changed, as you can.
Whatever your life is now, its not as you want it to be. Fix it, make a plan as I did and begin executing TODAY. And then? Never stop. Keep dreaming bigger, and keep expanding your plans because you never will be satisfied once you’ve gotten a taste of triumph.
