The fairy tale stories of success just falling into someone’s lap rarely happens.
It takes hard work and dedication to get your life in order. If this concept scares you or if you want to wait for your Fairy Godmother to bibbidi-bobbidi-boo you into happiness, then you don’t need to read any further. But if you’re ready to get your shit together now – read on!
1. You have to have goals, or what’s the point.
If you are wandering in life without any direction, it’s because you haven’t established what it is in life you want. What you’re working to achieve. Goals help us sort out what is important and what isn’t.
2. Stop giving a fuck about what others think of you.
How many hours have you spent worrying about what others think of you? How many times have you felt devalued because of what someone said about you? When you allow your self-worth to be determined by others, you are no longer in control of your emotions.
It is up to you to build your value in life. Your approval of yourself should always matter more than anyone else’s.
3. The truth is, we don’t have much control.
You can eat healthily, exercise daily and still get sick. You can graduate summa-cum-laude from college, and the dream job you wanted goes to the boss’ daughter who barely finished. You can be the funniest, prettiest, smartest woman and the guy you like choose someone else. You do your best and can still come out on the losing end. But you don’t give up, you just re-focus.
