In the current world, everyone wants to do things quickly and produce instant results. We value instant gratification more. When we fail to hit our goals instantly, we judge ourselves and sometimes abandon the goals. With such a mindset it becomes hard to succeed.
What we need right now is a change in our mindset. There are a few things that we need to embrace in order to live happily and realize our dreams.
1. Being Unhappy or Uncomfortable Is Inevitable at Some Point In Life
You will not always have everything that you need at your disposal. There are times your job will not be the best but you will still have to report to your work station because that is what will help you pay the bills and sustain the kind of life you have.
The idea of quitting your job because you are not happy may seem very inviting. But quitting without an action plan will make you more unhappy and even depressed. So be patient work this job for now as you plan your next move.
2. Enjoy The Process
Success is a process, it doesn’t happen overnight. You need to love each role and responsibility at every stage. Learn from every experience that you encounter. You need to put in the time, work and sacrifice for you to see results. These earlier stages will serve you in years to come . Embrace the journey and appreciate the people you meet along the path to your success.
3. Do What You Love
The only thing that will keep you grounded is your purpose. The passion and the love for what you do is what will make you wake up. It will motivate you to keep moving even when nothing seems to make sense.
4. Don’t Go In For The Money
When you decide to follow your passion, it may take you a while before you get any money from it. If you focus on money, you will give up along the way before you get there. Focus on learning and developing your craft. Once you become the master, money will start flowing.
5. Problems Are Your Fuel To Your Dream Life
This road is not usually without bumps. There are times that you will feel like giving up, there are days when your work will not make sense to you then there are times when you will feel like there is no progress. When that time comes, use it to create more and learn more. It is in conquering such problems that we find joy. One day you will look back and thank yourself that you never gave up on you.
When all is said and done, it is your mindset that matters. Just remember to play your own game. Do not compare yourself to anyone. Our journeys are different and we are at different stages. Enjoy, play and above all make deliberate positive steps in a consistent manner.
Greatness awaits you.
