We all can learn whatever we want. Well, at least, if we’ll try hard enough. In my case, for example, it is writing a book. The long one. Considering my problems with sitting still and focusing on a single task for a long time, things may get pretty difficult.
For now, I will only write blog posts in order to improve my skills, and previously mentioned qualities. At least, it’ll be a new experience.
Eventually, you will find what you are looking for…
Experience can help to prevent us from making the same mistakes next time. The only requirement is taking action. A desire to move towards the goal. What’s special about it? You can’t substitute experience by reading books or watching movies.
You have to live more in order to understand more.
It’s exceptionally satisfying to do things because we choose to, not because we have to, isn’t it? Although, with such a great number of Internet “gurus” it became too easy for us to make the wrong choice.
Are there anything right, or wrong, at all? Maybe we should do things which work for us, not others? To be objective. To not treat all the information we consume as universally correct.
“Why we generally tend to take the road more traveled?”
Most of the content you will discover today on the web have no practical use. The exception is the ones that will really help you to solve a problem, broaden your horizons, or achieve a goal you have put down on your bucket list.
Yes, there can be nothing easier than following the mainstream. Social proofs, rewards, incentives, and also positive statistics motivate us a great deal. The best thing you can do in this case is to find people who have a goal to make more value, not money.
Absorb what is useful and ignore the rest.
Stand up straight with your shoulders back. Literally. Be in the control of your mind.
Don’t focus on your inner world. That little voice inside your head which always holds you back from going ahead and doing something.
Focus on the world around you. On the words you hear, and speak. Be really involved, and look for the clues to make yourself more present in the moment.
If you’re getting stressed, find a creative way to calm yourself down, or use it as a fuel. Stress isn’t always bad. On the contrary, it’s even good most of the time.
Doesn’t matter what you experience while being stressed, or what has caused it. Your response to such a situation is much more important.
With a creative approach, you can get yourself excited and energetic. Stress allows you to access some hidden parts of your brain. And, adrenaline is one of the perks.
We’re all equal, but not the same.
When you are mindful, present in the moment and in control of your mind, you become much better in learning.
It takes no courage, or responsibility, to follow the crowd. To accept what everyone does. However, you must be brave enough to be able to fail and have your own opinion.
We aren’t living to satisfy other people’s expectations. If YOU aren’t living your life, who gonna do it for you?
It’s okay if you don’t believe in me. But, hey, just believe in yourself. This is when you learn to trust others… when you trust yourself!
Expand your horizons by dedicating yourself to lifelong learning. Strive for new experiences and find out who you really are. There’s no point in enduring circumstances which don’t make you a happier person.
You are what you think all day long.
Your mindset is a very important part of your personality. It can help you or can destroy from the inside. Good, or bad. Eventually, you will find what you’re looking for.
Saying about negativity, it does no good for you but sucks up your energy. Then, you may get into the habit of sucking energy from the others. In other words, you may become a passive-aggressive person.
We don’t want this, right? So, let all the strains go. Don’t overthink, or stress yourself out.
That is a reason you need to focus on the positive side of any situation you are facing. Accept yourself as you are. You cannot change your past, but you can change your future.
Don’t overestimate your abilities, or underestimate your beliefs.
Let’s return to the goal. How can I keep myself on the track and not lose discipline? Should this all be treated as a challenge, or have rewards in the end? Maybe, the goal actually means a challenge?
The answer I’ve got from many books and my own experience is The Life List. It’s something you have to create and look at every day. Don’t make it too unrealistic, and set only the ones you believe is possible for you to achieve.
A number of people may assert you to set them so high it’ll be a shame to waste any second. Will this work for you? If you’d say yes, then go for it.
As for me, it did work, but in a slightly another way. The first time I was eminently motivated… Six months later, I was stuck on the thought of not having moved towards any goal a dime.
Similar to getting hit in the stomach, a wave of pressure ran through every part of my body. Numb, intense pain. A sort of pain when you just want to scream and writhe. An agony hard to be borne.
“Things end. People leave. And you know what? Life goes on. Besides, if bad things didn’t happen, how would you be able to feel the good ones?” — Elizabeth Scott
I fell on my knees and started beating the floor. In a matter of moment, all my previous feelings were swept by the new one. Frustration.
At this point I returned back to the down-to-earth attitude and realized, The Life List wasn’t full of goals, but my fantasies…
