It’s sad to think that the majority of the population is fooled into believing they have to do things they don’t want to.
Don’t get me wrong, there are still certain obligations that you can’t dip out on, but these don’t add up to much in comparison to the other “responsibilities” that people think they absolutely have to tend to.
You and only you are in in charge of the direction your life is heading in.
If you’re unhappy with where you’re going, then it’s time to realize that you’re not destined for this path and you have the power to do something about it.
Allow me to explain…
Every day we see people going through the motions, continuing to work a job they hate or forcing themselves to remain in a relationship they’re not happy with.
But for what reason?
It’s different for everyone, but most people choose to power through these things because of the expectations of others.
They’re paralyzed by the thought of what the people they love will think or feel towards them and therefore base their own lives around this mindset.
I’m here to encourage you to start living life according to your own terms!
Be a bit selfish and pursue what truly makes you happy. If you’re unfulfilled with the career path you’ve chosen, then make an effort to change it.
The same goes for relationships…
There’s no reason to remain with someone who holds you back or has a negative impact on your overall well-being. Separating yourself from these people doesn’t mean you don’t love them, it simply means you’re looking out for your own best interest.
I’m not saying that quitting your job and starting fresh with a new career or cutting ties with a person you’ve been with for years is always easy to do.
But if either is prohibiting you from being the best version of yourself, then it’s absolutely necessary.
Studies show that 6 out of 10 couples are “unhappy in their relationship” and the vast majority of workers hate their jobs.
Do you fall into one or both of these categories?
If so, just know that making a conscious effort to improve on either is proven to have a positive effect on you personally.
Sure, there are other factors that contribute to your overall happiness that you have control over. However, unfulfilling careers and negative relationships are arguably the most impactful because they’re often the hardest to let go of.
No matter what you may fool yourself into believing you have to do, remember that YOU have the ultimate authority over what you choose to partake in.
Don’t let the expectations of your family and friends keep you from pursuing what you truly want in life.
Live the kind of life that you would be proud of!
Whether it’s your employment or significant other that’s dragging you down, know that you can turn things around for the better. You just have to be willing to put forth the effort.
Unlock your secret by cutting away the things that negatively impact your day-to-day existence and see for yourself what kind of personal benefits will come from it.
