Our entire life, what do we do? We wait! We sit and we wait. We wait around for things to happen to us instead of making them happen ourself. Life is supposed to work itself. It gives us what it likes and we accept it thinking it's not in our destiny or we wait around. While it is true for a lot of cases, that we can't change things. Some things are inevitable and we have no control over them. We have to accept it. But that doesn't mean we'll treat every aspect like that. Somethings and the ones about you can be changed.
" Accept the things you can't change, and change the things you can't accept "
Make it happen for yourself. Don't sit and wait. If life isn't giving it to you then fetch it for youself.
To make things happen for you, you will have to get up and just do them. Do stuff, anything but don't think much. Thinking make us weak. Just do what will help you get what you want. Go for little things. For example if there is place you have been wanting to visit, just get in your car and go for it. Call someone to go with you. Don't wait around hoping to get there someday.
Things become a lot easier when you plan them ahead. It also helps you feel motivated and provides a direction. Having a plan makes you believe that its actually gonna happen. Following the plan you make is not easy at all. You often start feeling overwhelmed and it doesn't work. So the key to have a successful plan is to make it for short term. Don't plan out your entire month but start with just a week or even a few days. This makes it seem doable.
So here are the steps to follow
Before starting or planning anything, you have to make sure this is what you want and you are ready to work hard. Already tell your mind that you will have to do some hard work. Feel motivated and make up you mind.
make you plan about what you need to do and how to do it. Plan out how often you will do it. Remember to plan it short term. If you plan the entire thing now, you will only be seeing a long hard journey and it will scare you.
don't be over confident. Don't add things that you never like to do. You won't do it later and that will mess up your entire plan. Usually when we are starting some work we are very motivated and excited which leads to anchievable goals and steps that you can't really do.
Go for goals that you really hope to fulfil and will make you happy. Things that are important for you. Don't make goals that are supposed to be seen as "success". Define your own success, something that makes you feel happy.
"Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen and some make it happen"
You need to grab life and start living it. The only way to live it happily is by having things you want and doing things you like. And definitely, it is very hard to do that, it's only easy to say it but you just have to think it in a way that life is also isn't easy. Living happily would also require you to do and make things happen for yourself.
A positive state of mind is not merly good for you, it benefits everyone with whom you come into contact, literally changing the world
