Get Your Hopes Up!
Are you excited about life? Do you have hope for your future? If you are currently working at a job you hate and have a life that isn't filled with very much excitement, know that you can change it anytime you want. We are all in 100% control of our lives, our happiness and our future. If you are finding yourself going nowhere fast, I've got a few words of advice that may help you to turn it around.
1. Realize that life is not a dress rehearsal and you only have one shot!
You only get to travel through this existence on earth one time so you better make it count. By making it count, I mean that you had better live your life on your terms doing the things that you were born to do. Most people get stuck in a boring job that pays the bills and they forget to live their lives. Their silly job becomes more important than life itself. A job can zap the life right out of you and make you want to crawl into a hole somewhere and die. Trust me I know all too well how miserable a job can make you feel, especially since I was born to be an entrepreneur.
You have to take every chance you get to turn your life around. The worse thing you can possible do is get to the end of your life and be filled with regret for all the things you didn't do.
2. You are responsible for everything that happens to you!
You may not want to hear that but it's absolutely true. No matter what you are going through, you have attracted it into your life in some way or another. In order to have a better life, you need to be sure and take 100% responsibility for where you are now and know that you are in total control of where you are going. This is a good thing! You have the power to make your life great or make it miserable. It's all about what you choose to do.
3. You can turn your life around right now!
You decide at this moment that you will not allow another miserable day to enter your life. If you want to have a better financial future, hitch your wagon to someone who can show you how to do it. It's easy these days! If you want to lose weight, find an expert and get your ass to work! It's as simple as that. People make way too many excuses for things that are extremely simple. I've been a certified fitness trainer for over ten years and I am amazed at how many excuses people make. I have heard more than I care to repeat because they are all nonsense. If you want something bad enough, you'll find a way...otherwise you'll find an excuse.
4. Stop trying to be like other people!
Are you angry that you haven't experienced success (if that's what you want to call it) like your boss has? Are you mad because you can't do something as good as someone else can? Stop it! You need to realize that each and everyone of us have our own unique personality complete with things that we do well and things that we don't do so well. You need to focus on the things you do well instead of all the things you don't do well. Each of us have to find our own strengths and only you know what they are. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise or try to talk you into something that borders on being one of your weaknesses. Trying to excel in something that just doesn't match your personality will only frustrate you and make you miserable. There is no need in comparing yourself to other people because we all move at different speeds...and that's completely OK.
5. Find your passion!
Passion is what give you hope in life. When you have something to wake up to each and everyday, you'll start to see what life is all about. Getting up and going to a lousy job isn't even close to living life. We all have passions and once you embrace yours and build your life around it, you'll find that things naturally fall into place. This is exactly what happened to me. I chased money for many years doing all that I could to earn as much as I could. I finally realized that this was not the way to go about it. I learned to live my passion everyday and never even think about the money. Needless to say, I don't have to worry about money anymore simply because I took a hold of my passion, focused on helping others as much as possible and the money took care of itself.
If you really want to have hope for your future, you have to live your life on your own terms. There is plenty of everything to go around on this earth so embrace your passion and allow yourself to dream. Dreams become reality when they are combined with goals, a solid plan and a lot of hard work. Dedicate yourself to personal development and allow your mind to become saturated with positive, uplifting information. Hope is what keeps us going. Without it, we have nothing to look forward to and we fall into depression and other horrible things that lead to a life filled with unhappiness. Know that you can do anything you want to if you just have the desire. A burning desire is a powerful motivator!
Get your hopes up!
