The Storm Will Pass
You will fail. You will struggle. You will fall more times than you can get up, but for what?
What exactly are you living for?
"Sometimes people don’t want to hear the truth because they don’t want their illusions destroyed." - Nietzsche
How much are you willing to bleed for your goals?
All of the limitations that you think you have - are only in your mind, and yours alone.
Let’s say you know one hundred people in your life - and each of those know a hundred people…
You're 5 people away from the entire world...
Regret is the greatest expense of them all. Not accepting your responsibility is akin to the death of everything that you could have been.
What you have to understand is that the pain of the past is simply that - everything that you’ve been doing, including all of those times where you’ve procrastinated, has been forging you since the beginning.
To become what? You decide.
You won’t regret what you do today, the next day or even in a year - but one day you’ll look back on your life and live with the greatest expense of them all: regret.
I'll say it now, and I'll say it again: regret is killer.
It’s worthless now, you can’t do anything about it.
People want motivation, they want an easy solution — a hack that’s going to get them there.
Motivation won’t get you to where you want to go. What you have to understand is that your actions have consequences that ripple throughout time and will affect not only yourself but everyone around you.
That extra hour you never spent studying? It should haunt you for the rest of your life. You gave up, and failed at the last hurdle — you weren’t even able to commit to something; the one thing you said you could do, you weren’t able to.
You know when you’re being lazy.
You know when you could be doing more.
But instead, you choose not to.
You wouldn't have read this far if you didn't think that you are who you should be.
You’ve got one life — what are you waiting for?
What you must understand is that all the lies you tell yourself to justify what you’re not doing has been said and done thousands of times before.
All of your insecurities, lies and convoluted deceptions that you tell yourselves and other people about how the world should be — get you nowhere.
What you must understand is that your perception will shape your reality, and until you actually change your perception of the world, you will remain the exact same.
I.e. any new habit that you try to form — will die.
Decompose. Slowly but surely, like a snake casting it's skin.
Unless you actually commit towards something that’s greater than yourself, you'll never find what you're looking for.
The best thing to do? Eliminate the limiting beliefs that you already possess.
Understand this: death does not wait.
You have very little time on this planet, and what — you’d rather do nothing?
You’d rather go for little impulsive pleasures, as opposed to moving towards your goals?
That’s assuming you have goals, to start off with.
Alright, so who do you want to become?
What would you do if everything you did mattered?
Because it does.
You have a choice to make: you can either live and act as if every single action you do will have a ripple effect that stretches across time, or not.
