Wake Up And Find The Courage To Live The Life That You Want

Wake Up And Find The Courage To Live The Life That You Want

You know what’s the one thing that you and I have in common?

We both want to improve our lives and become the best version of ourselves.

We both are want to find our path and live the dream that we’ve always had since we were little kids.

We both want to make that biggest transformation in life. The one that redefines you. The one that changes you from the core. The one that requires leaving your comfort zone, stepping beyond your current way of life and embracing challenges.

But you know what stops us?

Our fear…

Yes, my friend, our fear is the cage that we are trapped in. And you know what’s even worse? We’re the creators of that cage. On top of it all, we are the ones who have locked ourselves inside and thrown away the key. Yep, that is pretty much how we live our lives.

I am not afraid to admit it. My fear is indeed the door that has stopped me from achieving many things in life. But I am working on it. And so should you.

I am not saying this to scare you. I don’t want to make you panic. I am doing it to tell you that you have million opportunities around you and you are deciding to stay in one place. I am doing it to let you know that you and only you are responsible for your journey in life. That metanoia that you so desperately dream of. It is your duty to live true to yourself. It is your life’s mission to show the world who you truly are, create what you love and devote your whole existence to doing that.

I am doing it because it took me a lot of time to open my eyes and realize how much time I’ve wasted hiding in my comfort zone. I don’t want you to go through the same thing.

I am doing it to wake you up.

Your life is your own signature creation. It is a white canvas, and you are the only one who has the colors.

I know that you are confused. I know that you are struggling to find the real you. I know that. I’m going through the same myself. I am still figuring things out. But guess what? So do many people. Millions of people out there have no idea what they want to do with themselves. And it is OKAY.

The journey of self-discovery takes time. You don’t have to rush. What matters the most is realizing your WHY. Why does doing something makes you feel a certain way? Why does fighting for that thing is so important to you? What values does it add up to your life?

Knowing the WHY is the first step in figuring out how to achieve your lifelong goals.

But in order to discover your WHY, you first need to dive deep inside yourself and find that courage within you. You need to put that fear aside and realize that it is now or never. That you will either do your best to live your dream or spend your life in quiet desperation. You have to be curious and bold enough to explore the unknown, embrace the surprises that come along the way and eventually reinvent yourself.

You, my friend, have to give yourself the time to consider what it is that makes you truly happy. You need to realize what you really want in life and then grab the opportunities that come your way.

So, please. Be the change. Step out of your safe place. Find the courage to live the life that you want. Open your mind. Embrace the obstacles along the way. Learn from them. Be who you really are. Show your true colors to the world. Accept the fact that you will make mistakes. Don’t take life for granted. Don’t settle for what’s already there just because that’s the easier way…Be the inspiration that others are looking for.

It’s your life after all. Make it worthwhile…
