Not for you
The diet that’s working for your friend isn’t for you
Nor is their training program
The investment your family member is trying to get you in on isn’t for you
Nor is that career path everyone telling you to do because its family tradition
It’s not for you.
What’s for you is what works for you not them.
Go to uni and study what you want, not what your parents want,
Do the diet and exercise program that you can stick too for life because it works for you not them…
Follow your own path, because their life is not for you, you have to make yours your own
We make the reasons
Things don’t happen for a reason, Things happen at random.
Your car breaking down wasn’t a sign from the gods or the universe it was just machinery breaking.
Getting injured or fired is not a sign from the universe they are just thing that happens.
Maybe they’re not for the best but they have happened and we can look for a sign or sit and dwell, or we could just accept them for what they are random acts of life.
If you take the injury as a sign you should stop doing what caused the injury then you created that sign maybe because deep down you never really enjoyed it anyway.
Or getting fired was a sign that you should start a side hustle, once again you created that meaning because maybe you hated your job.
Life is random, anything that happens we create the reasons why for better or worse that is up to us.
‘No… He was dead’
When a famous wrestler called Milo was crying by the sideline watching the youths wrestle and athlete training,
he looked at his muscles and said –
‘Now these are certainly dead’ (Something I do daily)
Which is when Cato came out with the quote at the top, meaning Milo was basically dead since he couldn’t see any purpose past his wrestling career,
Making his identity his job.
