You don’t get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
– Les Brown
Our lives are the result of choices we make every day. If you don’t like your life now, it means it’s time to start making better choices. Take the first step.
You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.
– C. S. Lewis
This is actually one of those negative thoughts that I constantly need to remind myself to get rid off. That I am too late to do anything. The regrets about the time I’ve wasted. That’s all in the past. I am still breathing now. I can start anew every second! We can all start now. Right now. Not tomorrow. Now.
A head full of fears has no space for dreams.
There are tonnes of things I want to do but never got to doing it because of fear. Fear comes in different forms of excuses. It’s mostly in our subconscious mind. We think too much. Just know that it’s ok to be afraid. It’s normal. It means we are going to do something brave.
No one is ever fearless. We just learn to fear less.
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
– Matthew 6:33
Make sure you get your priorities right. You might think we automatically care more about what’s most important in life but the truth is, often times we don’t.
Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.
– Psalm 55:22
Be a warrior, not a worrier.
Keep your eyes on the stars, and your feet on the ground.
– Theodore Roosevelt
Don’t get carried away and have your head in the clouds. I used to get paralysed with indecisions because I think too much and too far ahead. I have spent months doing nothing.
Stay in the present. Do what you need to do and do what you can do now with what you’ve got. Sitting in your room and thinking about your dreams while the bills are piling up and your precious time wasting away isn’t the way to go.
Go live the real life. Only then you can live your dream life.
