I was watching a beautiful sunset last night and as I stood there watching the sky light up in all sorts of pink and orange colors, I became aware of what really matters in life.
We’re all trying to make a living and enjoy life in this big beautiful world.
There is so much greed, hatred, jealousy, killing and negativity in the world. So many people are working jobs they hate because it seems to be “what you’re supposed to do”. Imagine waking up in the morning and hating your life, hating your day and the 5 days a week you need to be at your job.
I wouldn’t want it for any price, because you only have a limited amount of days before your time is up. Life is the most precious gift of all, and we should enjoy it to the max.
Now of course I know that you need to make money to stay alive. You need to do something to bring in the Benjamins. I also know that not everyone can be successful or wealthy, but I believe that anyone can.
It takes hard work and persistence, but you can do it. I’m busy doing it, and I’m going to succeed.
What I can’t tell you is how long it will take or what exactly is going to be the big stepping stone towards my goal. Maybe I won’t reach my targets in the next year, and I’ll have to find a job to pay for the bills.
But I won’t settle, I’ll never settle for something I don’t really want. As long as I’m alive, healthy and free…I’m going to keep following my passions and keep working towards my goals until I reach them.
If you really want to make a change to your life and current situation, then this is the mindset that you need to have. It doesn’t matter what comes your way, as long as it doesn’t kill you, you will reach your goals!
I mentioned all the bad and negative things of our world earlier, but there are so many good, beautiful and wonderful things on this earth that overshadow the bad.
Things like freedom, health, being alive, friends and family, food, a warm dry place to sleep and the wonders of nature (like a beautiful sunset) are more than enough to love live and appreciate every single second of it.
One of my favorite stories is A Dog’s Purpose. If you haven’t read it then take a couple of minutes to do so. It’s worth it, I promise!
It’s easy to forget how lucky you are and it’s easy to take the special things you have for granted. (I forget it myself at times). I just wanted to remind you of it with this post!
