Congratulations for finding this article. If you follow the 3 simple keys that will follow, your journey through this adventure we call life will be quite rich and fulfilling. So let’s get right to it, shall we? Something to do, something to love, something to hope for.
How do we define something to do? A job, business, career, a hobby you decide for yourself how you define that in your life, and in many ways it may be forever changing. That’s fine, remember we said this is a journey.
Something or someone to love and we’re not talking about that business or job either. We are discussing someone or something separate from that area of your life. A friend, relationship, or pet and identify what suits you at this stage of your life. Develop and refine that love, from right where your at this moment.
Lastly, Something to hope for. A better or more interesting job, business, career, hobby, and perhaps even love.Because remember this is a journey, which means the landscape will change throughout the trip in many areas of your life. But also it means that your hopes can be fun as well as practical. Be bold and go for that ideal relationship, car, house, vacation, or business. Just remember your hopes! Not the hopes of others. This is not to say that a relationship can not share these three keys or if willing compromise these keys if all are in agreement. But for this segment, we are discussing you as an individual and just you. May your journey continue.
When you build courage, you start to improve your personal life. Building courage will help you take risks to a brighter future that you ordinarily would not take. When you build courage, you put fear behind you. courage is the process of admitting that you have fears, yet you are willing to find a way to defeat those fears and not allow these fears to take control of you. It is ok to experience your fears at appropriate times. For instance, if a bus is heading in your path, swerving you have a right to fear. There is nothing wrong with healthy fear. The problem is you have to put healthy fear in its place and unhealthy fear out of your life.
Once you build courage, you will learn to self-direct you in life. You will learn to accept punishment and rewards gracefully. A courageous person will often feel motivated to accept blame and responsibility while reviewing their actions and using what they learn to move forward. Courageous people will step to the front, rather than stepping back when opportunities come their way. On the other hand, a courageous person will step back and take a view at his or her mistakes gracefully.
Sometimes the courageous person is spontaneous. It is never good to plan each day because no one knows what the next day will bring in. Think about it. How many times have you planned something all to see it shatter in your face the next day? For instance, I plan to go to the ballgame tomorrow. Come tomorrow a blizzard, hurricane, tornado, wind storm, or rainstorm could change your mind. You planned, but did you plan for the weather. Did you make a backup plan in case your first plan failed? As you can see, planning is not always in your favor, which is why courageous people are sometimes spontaneous.
A person willing to improve their life will relax. This person will relax even when plans fail. For instance, if it stormed the next day the person will find something else to occupy his or her time and feel just as happy about joining this adventure.
To become successful and improve your life you will need to learn how to trust you. When you trust you, you can trust others as well. Unfortunately, we live in a world where trust is hard to find, yet when you trust you, you can’t blame others when things go wrong.
Improving your life includes using your creative and critical mind. When you can create new ideas, you are off to the road to success. You have many options in this world, it takes you to pull up resources to find those options.
Sometimes in life, we feel uncomfortable. In fact, this is common. Are you willing to accept your discomforts? Perhaps at an interview, you feel misplaced. Are you willing to accept this discomfort and find a way to deliver a good speech to impress the interviewer? Alternatively, are you willing to allow negative energies to cost you the job?
Do you accept it?
Do you accept the things you cannot change? Do you accept the things you have control over? Do you accept other people regardless of how these people act? Do you accept you for who you are? Do you accept the changes that life brings your way?
Acceptance is your key to happiness. When you can learn to accept the good with the bad, you can learn how to live happier and improve your personal life. If you cannot accept, however, well, reread this article again.
