The universe does not care if you are a nice person.
You can’t sit around expecting good things to happen to you, expecting the universe to reward you for being nice.
You need to take action.
Because to be honest the universe probably does not even know you exist, We are about as relevant to the universe as a pebble on the beach…
So stop expecting the universe to reward you.
You want something, You want magic results, YOu want your life to change…
Then you need to take action.
You need to do the work.
And not just once, but every day until you have the results you want.
Then you need to keep on doing the work to maintain those results and do even more work to get different results.
Because that’s life
And the work never stops.
What will you discover…
I love finding a great book, then realising the author has other books, then you find similar books by other authors
It’s a whole path to discovering awesome stuff
We get the same process with other things too, podcasts, films, jobs, hobbies
Discovery is awesome.
But in order to discover, we need to get started, we need to pick up the first book, the podcast, we need to start that new hobby
Motivation is not your friend.
If you only wait for motivation to get going then you won’t get very far.
You are never going to find enough motivation to start something completely new,
And if you do it will be hard to get it to stick around once it does show up.
Motivation isn’t a very good freind.
It’s like the one friend who appears after all the chaos has ended and the waters have settled
Don’t rely on that friend
Life doesn’t happen when you dropped those last few pounds
That’s not when you start to live
Life doesn’t happen when you get that promotion
That’s also not when you start to live
Life doesn’t happen when you get the grades you want, get excepted into the university you want, get the degree you want,
You don’t start to live after you have achieved something,
Life doesn’t begin when your earning x amount, or look a certain way or have some letters after your name
Life happens daily, before during and after you get those things
Life can be awesome, but your missing it because you think it starts once you retire…
We book a holiday and all we do is look forward to it,
We imagine ourselves sat on a beach with a cocktail, or seeing a world famous site whilst we go about our boring daily lives
We get excited about going to a party or a meal with so and so and once again this consumes our mind
But the time in between planning the thing and actually doing the thing matters just as much
Yeah you may be looking forward to your holiday or whatever but are you not equally looking forward to another day.
Instead of daydreaming about what you could be doing in 2 weeks time you could be enjoying the taste of your food or the sites around you
The things we do in between are the important stuff because they take up the majority of our lives and to be honest they’re pretty amazing if you learn to appreciate them
