We can't deny that once in our life, we experienced the worst part of achieving our goal, It is the depression phase or the so called "mid-life crisis". There will be times that you feel that no matter how hard you do, you are still stuck on your current situation. You are still not getting what you really want. You feel that life is so hard on you and everybody are against you despite the fact that all you just want in life is to be happy.
The question is, are you really doing enough? Or are you just doing a lot of complaining? Pointing fingers to people around you why you are not what you want to be is much easy than working. Blaming your boss, the company you are working and the management why you are not getting a promotion is very easy than thinking and striving hard on how to get promoted. But I guarantee that blaming will not solve the problem.
Actually I have a story to tell you that I wish you could relate to. Way back when I was a fresh graduate student in college, I applied in some companies and fortunately got hired immediately to a small company. But since the fact that I am a fresh grad with lack of necessary work experience for the job position I applied for, The company just compensate me a minimum wage and without hesitation I accept it because I am also after on the work experience that I will earn. But after few months, I feel the burden of earning little money and struggling so much on how I can budget it to all of my necessesities and that is how I keep on complaining on myself that time. I feel that I don't get what I deserve. I work so hard and overtime at work and I even go to church every Sunday to pray for the Lord to shower me blessings but it seems that with everything I do, it is still not enough.
And then I found out that for you get what you want, you really need to work for it. As in totally work for it! like getting your ass away from where you sit in and start doing what you really need to do. Right now!. You need to want your dream as much as you want to breathe. You have to build a desire within yourself that you need a change. Let me give you the best example. It's like a baby that crawls everyday. and then few months after, the baby feels the urge to do something more than just crawling. It's when the time that the baby trying to look at anything that she could hold on to to stand. The first time the baby try to stand, of course she will fall because her knees are not strong enough. But because of the desire to stand, the baby will continuosly try hard for the second, third and several times to stand given the fact the she will fall again. Until her bones will be strong enough to balance her body. and that is how baby learned to stand firmly. That is how humans, us, learn at our very young age. It has also a huge similarity on our current life. If we have dissatisfaction on our life whether it is on our career or love life, that means that you are looking for a change. But not all people are willing to take that risk. Because like what is happened on the baby, you will fall several times and we all know that people are afraid on failing. People are afraid on losing. and that is how complaining is done. But if you took the road not taken, in which only few people that are willing to take risks took this path, you have to be ready for the challenges and failing. Remember that what matters is the desire for what you want to achieve and to fight what you think you are worth for. Let me give you the best motivational movie dialog about life.
“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place, and I don't care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard you hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done! Now, if you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain't you. You're better than that! I'm always gonna love you, no matter what. No matter what happens. You're my son and you're my blood. You're the best thing in my life. But until you start believing in yourself, you ain't gonna have a life."
- Sylvester Stallone, Rocky Balboa
Therefore, you have to work on your dream today as early as possible. As in right now! because our world is not a wishing factory. If you won't do any actions for your dream, some people will do that and while you see them achieving their goals, you are there stuck at the corner and keep on complaining. "Why I don't get why I deserve?". Like what the speaker said on the video. Mel Robbins, The formula for success is simple. But I guarantee you that it is not easy.
You have to make things work for you and not against you. That's why stop screwing up yourself. Stop sabottaging your bright future. If you find dissatisfaction on your life, Whether it is on your career or love life, accept from your heart that you have that dissatisfaction and you are not happy with that that's why you have to do some actions to improve what you have.
So what are you waiting for? Move and hustle..
