Yes, that’s exactly my question. Do you feel lost? Do you not feel good about yourself? About the place you are in your life? Perhaps, you even don’t feel good about what you are doing with your life. Most of you will agree with this, and if you do, then we have something in common right now. I don’t feel good. I don’t feel like I am in the right place, doing the right thing. There’s something missing. I don’t know what, but some thing is missing. I don’t feel like I’m on the right path to do what I am meant to do. I am not achieving my dream.
You may tell yourself the same thing right now too. “I am not achieving my dream either”. But why? You see people on television, Youtube, or even just people around you achieving their dreams, and you envy them. You want to do the same. Why aren’t you then? I’ll tell you why. You are lazy. You are lazy and you are afraid. Yes that’s right. You don’t want to go out there and achieve. You have a thousand reasons why you “can’t” go out there and achieve. You try and convince yourself, or maybe you are already convinced that you can’t be Steve Jobs, that’s just not written for you. You don’t take a second and admit to yourself that those reasons are made up in your head and that they are just excuses.
You want to sit down on the couch and wait for your dream to knock on the door. You feel comfortable where you are in your life right now and you don’t want to change that. You are afraid to change it. You don’t want to try and go out there alone and risk everything then fail. As if you do that, you will disappoint yourself. But that’s not the only thing you are afraid of. You are afraid about what people will say when you fail. Or what people will say when you tell them about your dream. They’ll make fun of you, or even worst, they will discourage you and tell you that you are not capable of it.
Well maybe it’s time to stop finding excuses, to stop being afraid and to stop caring about what people will say! Think about it, you only have one chance to do what you want to do, because then you will die. You don’t have another life to do what you want. You don’t need another life because you have this one! Look yourself in the mirror and say today I will change something in my life. I will change something that my future self will thank me for. I will do that with you, because once we make it up there, we will feel good about ourselves and that’s what life is about. Doing what you are supposed to be doing and feeling good about it.
