‘Your life is a result of your choices, if you don’t like life, it’s time to make better choices’
I absolutely sign up to this mantra. Some may think it’s easier said than done but I think many people simply don’t push themselves to make life more enjoyable.
Don’t get me wrong, some decisions need time and consideration before you can act upon them but some are simply a conscious decision and a quick phonecall or a text.
Moving to another country clearly takes a careful thought out plan but looking for a new job or walking away from the negative friend who pulls you down every time you meet up can be as easy as turning over the TV if you really set your mind to it.
The simplest way to get started is by asking yourself,
‘On a scale of 1-10, are you happy’?
If you’re a 10 then good on you. If you’re consistently less than a 7 then you need to make some new decisions. Life is too short to live an average one so why not choose to live a great one instead?
The only caveat is you’re critically ill, other than that, change it.
Shit job? shit relationship? Do you live in a shit area? Do you eat shit food? Do you have shit friends?
Well, just change it, make the conscious decision to make better choices and your life will improve. Trust me, it works, life is only as good as your choices, so if you’ve made bad ones, start to make good ones!
Travel more, start up your own business, find new friends who inspire you, put the house up for sale and move to a place that’s good for the soul, eat healthier, grow your own food, go for walks, quit that shit job you dread going to on a Monday morning, live abroad for a bit?
Why the hell not eh?
Draw the line in the sand and start making better choices, it’s absolutely ridiculous to carry on living a shit life when you can live a great one.
Don’t wait for the world to change for you, take charge of your choices and the changes you need will happen.
Reach for that 10!
Hasta luego amigos!
