If you want a nice body, workout. If you want to become an engineer or doctor, study your ass off. If you want nice hair, pick a style and get it done. Stop being afraid and motivate yourself. Find yourself. Find your happiness, because it’s out there waiting for you.
Hurting people back will not heal your pain. Learn to react to people constructively, even if that means being alone in silence, to study your emotions. In your response is your DESTINY. If you do not take conscious control of your reaction, you will give away your power.
You can always start again. Clean out your social media. Create a new account for your new taste in music. Study or work in a new city. Start socialising with new people. Choose a new signature scent and style and purge the outdated parts of yourself. If you don’t like where you’re at & you don’t know what to do about it, simply try starting again.
Figure out what you want to do with your life and just do it. Dedicate a separate journal for you to write down all of your goals. And don’t just stop at journaling, make detailed steps towards achieving them. Stopping sitting around and half arsing your way through things because you can’t seem to find any direction, because seriously, life is what you make it and sometimes you need to get up and force yourself to do the things you know will benefit future you.
Things like I’m still young or I’m too old are out of the question. No matter how old you are, what you study or where you study, use the time you have right now to learn & hustle. I mean really hustle. Because you don’t want to look back and say you should’ve worked harder, trained harder, tried harder, thought harder, loved harder or fought harder. DISCIPLINE & CONSISTENT APPROACH towards all your EFFORTS are your only two best friends in your journey. Don’t give yourself a reason to have regrets later on in life.
STUDY while others are sleeping. DECIDE while others are delaying. WORK while others are wishing. PREPARE while others are daydreaming. BEGIN while others are procrastinating. SAVE while others are wasting. LISTEN while others are talking. SMILE when others are frowning. PERSIST while others are quitting.
Educate yourself. When a question about a certain topic pops up, Google it. Watch movies, YouTube videos and documentaries. When something sparks your interest, read about it. Read read read. Study, learn, stimulate your brain. Don’t just rely on the school system, educate that beautiful mind of yours.
Go to university, but go for the right reasons. Education isn’t a gun held to your head: it’s a weapon in your hands. Go not because you’re afraid of not getting a job but go because you love to learn, because you’re excited by ideas, because you believe that education is important for its own sake, and when you get there, pay attention, read everything you can get your hands on, cram yourself with words and figures and ideas, because that’s the one thing they can never take away from you. At the end understand Knowledge, Skills & Qualification, all are equally important parts of life.
Certain things must be kept personal no matter how clumsy life gets, two such things which bug us the most are past resentments & fears and weaknesses.
Everyone has fears and weaknesses and sharing these things will not provide you comfort. People enjoy seeing other people’s weaknesses, so don’t feed them. You can study up on your fears and weaknesses or if that isn’t working, get some professional help.
Resentments about the past or constantly digging up the past, It’s not going to help. Those past experiences can easily affect today. Do not let these define the moment you are in. The best thing you can do is to express yourself in the moment. This way you can prevent past regrets and resentments. Forgive others in order to be peaceful, move on and let go.
