Don’t Be A Sheep – Follow Your Own Heart!
How does your life look right now, Are you living the life you want? If not then don’t be a sheep! It’s important that your follow your own heart.
Are you working at a job you don’t like, waiting for the weekend or your day off, waking up to another Monday where you wish your whole week away again?
This is how the majority of us live our lives and for some reason we’ve accepted that this is how life should be. We choose to trade away our time and freedom for a paycheck at the end of the month because it’s easier than working hard and struggling for the life that we truly deserve and desire. In short we trade our happiness for comfort. Don’t be a sheep who let’s somebody herd you instead of guiding yourself.
I challenge you to start thinking about what you want from your life. Ask yourself if you are truly happy in your life at the moment and if not, what steps can you start taking to change course into a direction that you want to go.
I hear people all the time talking about their dreams and the things they want to do, but when you ask them “Okay, so how are you going to do that?” they have no answer. Without even attempting to find out how it can be done, they just assume that it can’t be done. This is the sheep mentality. That you should have what you want handed to you on a plate. Instead of taking the initiative to find it themselves. So don’t be a sheep, go out and take what you deserve.
But just ask yourself this: if you spent the next year of your life delving into how to make your dreams possible, how much closer would you be to them? Imagine how much closer you could be in 5 years or 10 years. The more time you spend doing this, the higher the probability that change in your life will occur, until it simply becomes inevitable.
It’s not luck that gives people the ability to live the life they desire, it’s hard work and determination. “Luck” is just a byproduct of that. Your time is going to pass by anyway, so why not spend it constructing the life you’re supposed to have?
I implore you, if right now you are doing something unproductive with your time. Just think about your goals and how you want to live your life. Just take the first step towards your goals. Because at the end of the day the clock is ticking. Do you want to look back on your life and think “I wish I had the courage and drive to pursue the life I know I should have lived?” Or do you want to be looking back on all the great memories and achievements that you created for yourself?
The choice is yours. And while one of the roads is easier and you’ll never have to struggle, You won’t find happiness down it.
Thanks for reading.
