I often wonder what other people have planned for the rest of their lives. A lot of people can barely plan for the weekend ahead let alone their long term future. Do people realise money doesn’t last forever? Their health isn’t going to always be okay? What preventative measures are they taking to ensure their finances and health are taken care of, past the next pay check or doctors visit? I see a lot of people on Facebook out drinking and partying each weekend, but what exactly are they celebrating?
So many people bitch and moan about how much they hate their job. How they never have enough time. How they are not in shape or how hard their recently failed diet was. How badly they need a holiday.
It frustrates me to see people complaining so much but not doing anything to change. When it comes to hating your job, going from job to job hoping for better pay or better bosses is the definition of insanity - doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. And the time issue? There are 168 hours in the week, but if you break it down a lot of those hours are wasted; are unproductive. We all have the same amount of time, some just make better use of it. Health and fitness? Well… I’ll be the first to say that’s entirely a mental battle. You’ve got to be 100% honest with yourself about what you’re eating and the work your doing. How much education are you seeking? How bad do you want it? As for the holiday… I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again… Instead of dreaming of their next holiday, people need to start building a life they don’t need to escape from.
We have one chance at this thing called “life”. The number one regret people on their death beds have is not having the courage to live their life the way they wanted to! Isn’t that fucked up?! Why do people subordinate to the values, goals and dreams of others? Why follow a system that doesn’t work? The way I see it, every single person on this planet is destined for greatness. But a largely negative society has programmed us from birth to believe we are only worth what we are told and not what we are capable of. By the time we turn 18 we hear the words no; you cant do it; you’re not good enough; smart enough; strong enough; about 400,000 times on average. And when you really think about it, when you really break it down, people aren’t scared of failing. They’re scared of their own power.
Albert Einstein proclaimed “Great spirits always encounter violent opposition from mediocre minds” and it is 100% true - the only reason people try to bring you down is because you are above them… in their eyes.
Randy Gage proclaims “Haters don’t really hate you, they hate themselves because they don’t have the guts to do what you are doing”. People first to blaze a trail will always be judged. Haters will compare their flaws to your achievements and its through ego and insecurity that nastiness comes to the surface,
If you don’t like something, change it.
If you don’t have something, get it.
Remember when you were a kid and had wild, crazy dreams? You can still have them. And what’s infinitely more brilliant is you have the power and ability to achieve them! So fucking get out there and start living your dreams!
Fuck the haters!
Do what you want to do! It’s going to be risky and you are probably going to fail a few times, but anything worth having is worth the effort. And if achieving that dream at the end of the day, month, or year is worth all the hard work, then you’re on to a winner. If achieving that dream means you don’t have to answer to a boss, you have more time to spare, you have the body and health of your dreams and life is a luxurious holiday 24/7, DON’T GIVE UP.
There will always be naysayers, there will always be people who want to see you fail. Trust yourself and take action, do something great with your life. YOU are in control - stop bitching and complaining and start being happy!
