Have you ever wondered why sometimes you start doing something and then suddenly stop without any clear reason? When I’ve noticed that instead of reaching some kind of my goals I turn against myself and do completely opposite, I realised that I needed to dig deeper into understanding what the hell is happening here.
Motivation is the force that is driving us to achieve our goals. It is the reason or the ‘why’ we want to do one thing or another. Just sometimes, no matter how hard we would try to keep working for our dreams we find ourselves refreshing Youtube home page and doing absolutely nothing for it!
Our lives become like a battlefield. We are constantly fighting to prove to others that we live better than them. We show how much we have, how much we earn, how amazing our life is. And yet, competing and comparing doesn’t feel like happiness at all.
Sometimes it’s very easy to change your life - pack a bag, change your name, buy a flight ticket to foreign country and start a new life there. But to create a real and long lasting change we need to be bold enough to get out of our comfort zones and make it happen..
Since the day we were born society taught us that everything must be done in particular order. We’ve been living in a world where we feel social pressure to act and speak in a certain way. So it's no surprise that we are terrified of making mistakes! But is it really such a bad thing?
I believe that our thoughts and emotions are one of the most difficult things to handle, and often we hide from it because we don't know how to deal with it. Especially when all our lives we hear the phrases like 'you are too sensitive', get over it', 'it could be worse'.
I never knew where I wanted to be or what I wanted to do (and I still don't), so I was everywhere and nowhere, stressing myself out, feeling anxious, and even angry at myself because ‘I have to fit in some sort of box’. Do you feel like that too?
There is a good quote that says it all: “People were created to be loved. Things were created to be used. The reason why the world is in chaos is because things are being loved and people are being used.” But is it possible to reverse that?
Life is a journey. It is all about adventures, exploring the unknown, and getting lost in new experiences. But besides that we tend to forget that one of the most important part of this journey is the opportunity of a self-discovery. Getting to know yourself will not only make you feel happier, but also might help you to find a new path that you truly want to go.
