A better life

For a long time, you’ve been thinking of a better life, but you don’t really know what that means. How are you supposed to find something that you have never defined? The life you have not yet lived is made of an infinite number of versions, and none of them is real until you choose it.

There is no way for you to live more than one version of life. Before anything happens, you need to make a choice, if you don’t, the choice will be made for you. Look back on your life and you’ll find this to be true. When looking at the future, don’t be distracted by the many possibilities. Pick the one that feels right, you’ll find out later how good of a choice it was.

Define what you want life to be, and let the path to get there reveal to you. This does not mean that you need to know everything in advance, but having a destination in mind will reduce the time you lose at the crossroads.

Right now, you are confused because you never thought of what kind of life you want. All you did was wish for things to get better. How can anything get better if you always do the same things and have the same thoughts? You should be doing something different, to get different results.

Choose where you want to go and take the first step. When you feel ready, take another step, and then keep going until you reach the destination.

Why don’t you ever think that you are good enough to do what you’re trying to do? Why do you always default to “I can’t do this. I’m not good enough to accomplish this”? What you are feeling is fear, and it’s natural to be afraid when you step outside of what you know. But this is no reason to believe that you can’t do anything that is outside of your comfort zone.

Everything that you have ever learned felt like this when you started. First, you did it badly, then you improved your performance, and now it’s just something that you’re good at. This thing you’re trying to do right now might frighten you, but if facing it is too hard, just don’t run.

Stay with it until you are confident enough to take a step forward. With every new step you take, your confidence will grow, and soon enough you will not be afraid anymore. You already have everything necessary to succeed in all that you put your mind to, but to reveal it you’ll need to face the right challenges.

So, when you are met with something difficult, don’t be afraid. Now is the time to rejoice because you’ll learn something new about who you are. Decide to embrace the struggle and you will never be afraid again. And with every new thing that you’re able to do, you’ll grow into the person you can become.

Trust your decisions along the way, and don’t linger too much on past mistakes, and you’ll always be able to stand on your own two feet.
