If you don’t believe in the power of a relentlessly positive mentality and mindset that lends itself to forced action (by forced action, I mean taking action, creating action and going with the flow, i.e making your own luck), go back to your own distorted reality.
Over the course of this year, I helped a great friend of mine transcend his life. Perhaps I’m giving myself too much credit. Truthfully, I am. Allow me to rephrase: a great friend of mine transformed his life. His story is a conventional, run of the mill, ‘lost everything’ type of deal.
Long story short, he’s lost 80+ pounds and has turned his life around exponentially after losing seemingly everything. He made it happen himself.
Mindset is everything. You can change your life, given time, perseverance and persistence. No resources? Make your own resources.
Nobody said it isn’t tough, but when you like it rough and tough (don’t take this in another direction, now…) and condition yourself to the idea that hard work and trials/tribulations reaps rewards, you’ll be happy in the long run.
Forget the past, momentarily ‘live in the now’ and fight for and towards the future. That’s my philosophy. Love your life. It’s all you have.
