Chase The Right Things

In between goals is a thing called life, that has to be lived and enjoyed.

So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they’re busy doing things they think are important. This is because they’re chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.
Mitch Albom

Do what makes you happy. Take care of yourself. Be carefree. We’re not going to live forever, and when you really think about it, it’s really not that long in the grand scheme of things. So live gracefully. Stop chasing towards material things and being someone that you’re not. Life is far too short to be anyone but yourself and to be doing anything that you’re not completely in love with.

How To Figure Out What To Do With Your Life

Like a boss

1. Begin by imagining your dreams have come true. What would your life look like? What would you be doing? How would you be making money? Where would you be living? What would you be doing in your spare time? What sort of people would you be with?

2. Try reading some inspirational blogs, autobiographies or self-help books. Often those help to uncover our passions and the kind of person we really want to be.

3. Surround yourself with positive and motivated people. Those who know what they want and are consciously going after it.

4. Take up a hobby that really interests you. There’s usually a reason that you’re drawn to that.

5. Ask other people who know you well what they think would suit your personality. You’ll often be surprised by the kinds of things you learn.

6. Decide to “face your fears and do it anyway”. Don’t live a narrow life because you’re plagued by fear.

You’ve Come So Far — Keep Going!

Remember why you started

Just because it isn’t happening right now doesn’t mean it never will. Think back to where you were a year ago, or two or five. What struggles were you facing that you felt convinced you could never overcome — but did? Which goals did you feel certain you could never reach, but in your own time, were able to meet or even exceed? These past experiences are evidence of your capacity to heal and overcome. You may not be exactly where you would like, but you’ve come so far from where you once were. Trust that the rest will happen in its own time. You’ve disproven your doubts and fears countless times — you can trust that you will prove yourself wrong this time too.
Daniell Koepke

Keep going. Regardless of your current level of skill, regardless of your current circumstances, and despite your doubt. If you love something, completely and without question, don’t give it a second thought. Head towards it with open arms.

It Will All Be Worth It

Sometimes it will hurt. Sometimes it will feel like all of your hard work is going down the drain. But that’s part of the whole experience of when you come out successful at the end. Everything will pay off, just stay patient.
The Power Within

It’s okay be to be scared sometimes. Life can be daunting, risky, and unpredictable. But you know what else? Life is full of unexpected surprises, acts of kindness, and moments to cherish. It may be scary, but it’s all definitely worth it.

Keep Pushing

I hope you keep pushing. I know it’s hard and that there are a million things going on around you but stay focused. Stay passionate about where you’re headed, even if you don’t know exactly where that is yet. At least you’re moving. Sometimes, you find where you’re supposed to be by simply choosing a direction and taking a step. Be good to the people along the way. Keep true to what you love and the kind of life you want to live. Keep pushing, you could be almost there and not even know it.
Oh The Brave

If it’s important to you, that is a good enough reason to pursue it. You do not need to justify why you fight for the things that you head towards. As long as you know why, that’s all that matters.
