Fact: this is not a dress rehearsal for the show – your life right now is the show. Apply at least one of our suggestions from this site. There’s no time to waste, seriously.
Blaming other people for our imperfect life or fate doesn’t change anything. Your life is in your hands. Whatever the great picture you have for your life, you get to choose whether or not to follow it. No ifs, no buts, your choice.
Do you sometimes ask yourself: What’s the point of my life? What makes me truly happy?
Do you listen to the answers or do you block your ears and bury your dreams beneath a pile of distractions? Don’t forget to be honest! Remember our suggestions on how to know yourself!
Soap operas, Social Media, shopping, cleaning clean cupboards again…you know what detours you take to avoid painting the great picture. Each and every one of us has a secret dream but only some follow it; the rest become bitter, depressed or full of regret.
Get your priorities straight. The truth is that doing the little things is easier, no doubt about it. But if you’re going to fulfil the great picture you have for your life, you have to work at it.
A commitment to painting the great picture is what makes the difference between mere existence and a full life.
Awareness is the magic word here … being conscious of how you lead your life every single step of the way, so you can catch yourself when you get side-tracked. Or when you are tempted to do a U turn back to the life you were dissatisfied with. Be aware of negative thoughts, like ‘I’ll never get what I want out of life so why bother trying’.
Are you a quitter or a sticker? The stickers commit to painting the great picture and see results, the quitters don’t … simple as that!
And I’m not just talking about physically though that’s important too.
Each of us has different aspects which make us fully human – emotional, intellectual, spiritual, physical – and we need to balance them all. Our suggestions include keeping them in great shape if you’re serious about painting the great picture of your life.
Looking at the great picture of life means not only having utter faith in yourself but also in your ability to change, to transform yourself so that you get what you really want out of life.
The world is full of people who stand still and complain. But if you look in the right places, you will find brave souls who have taken those crucial steps towards a life they love. Of course there will be setbacks – nobody said change was plain sailing. It’s worth, don’t forget that!
Regret gets you nowhere in life. Looking back and seeing how far you have travelled on your inward journey will give you the confidence and motivation to continue along what is, sometimes, a stony path. Congratulate yourself on the steps you’ve taken so far! Reward yourself – that’s another one of our great suggestions.
Investing in yourself and your personal development is not a luxury, it’s a human right. Act right now!
