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 doDon't be a sheep, 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.

How to Find Your Purpose In Life

If someone asked you what you think you’re purpose on Earth is, would you be able to give them an answer?

Not having a purpose is like travelling without a destination, you’re just wandering around aimlessly. Maybe you’ll make it somewhere good, but the chances are you’ll spend your life helping someone achieve their purpose instead of your own.

If you don’t know what your purpose is yet I encourage you to figure it out. It’s never to late to make a change in your life to find your purpose. Here are some steps you can take to help you find it:

Follow your heart

These 3 words are the most important words I’ve ever heard. If you 

follow your heart you will eventually end up where you want to be. Following your heart will always take you to your destination. We often to snub out the little voice inside of us because it seems impossible or other people tell us it can’t be done. Ignore all external voices and let that inner voice guide you. It will show you where you need to go.

Keep taking action

The only way to follow your heart is to always be taking action. Always take steps forwards. Even if along the way you realize you are a little bit or a long way off it doesn’t matter. Adjust course, keep walking and start heading in the right direction. Being stuck in the same position and never growing is so much worse than a temporary detour.

Start broad

When taking action to find your purpose don’t be afraid to start broad. Think back to when you were a child, you were in some way inclined to a path or hobby you found the most joy in. If you are lucky you followed this intuition, but if like me you let other people’s judgement stop you from heading there it may take time for you to get back. I’ve gone from knowing I wanted to help the world, to wanting to help people, to wanting to inspire people. Start broad and keep honing until you know where you want to be. Even though you’re not there yet just being on the path is its own reward.

Don’t stay somewhere you shouldn’t be

A lot of people may feel that they’ve spent so much time and energy working towards something that they can’t leave it behind now. This is such a flawed way of thinking, if you’ve already spent 3 years of your life being unmotivated and lacking passion, what’s the point in spending another 3 years doing the same thing. Accept that this has been part of your journey and then start changing course to where you should be going. Don’t let anything hold you back from finding your purpose.

When you’ve found your purpose – stick with it

And finally once you have found your passion stick to it. Once you know your life purpose do everything in your ability to make sure that you always follow it. No matter how small the steps of action you take are just keep on pushing and you will find the happiness you deserve.
