I heard this quote on Grey’s Anatomy the other day. At the end of the episode Meredith said “Are you living the life you pictured for yourself? Or are you still dreaming of something bigger?”
Many people are not living the life they pictured for themselves. Nor are they even trying to go after the life they want. Due to laziness, fear or judgement. Many individuals are content with their mediocre life. Doing the same thing, day in and day out. Living the same life, day in and day out.
Avoiding the determination to go after what they want, or shunning the courage to go after it. I hate to be the barrier of bad news, but getting what you want will not be handed to you. You have to work for the things you want out of life. And if it’s handed to you, is it even that rewarding then? Not to me. Too easy and not fulfilling.
Whether that be a new career, meeting new people, getting rid of some people that are not good for you. Or having the courage to get out of your comfort zone to try something new. You may be rejected, or you may fall down. You may screw up doing this several times, but it will make you a more improved, stronger person.
One of the authentic ways to learn and be successful, is going through challenging situations. Pick ourselves back up if we fall down. Learn from our own mistakes. We’ve all heard that before.
Do you realize how incredible it feels to fall down 99 times, get up 100 and achieve what you were aiming for? Especially if you gave all your effort that many times. Refusing to give up and see it actually come to fruition! Not everyone will be there with a reaching hand to pick you back up. Yet, if you are an independent person, then you won’t need that anyway.
It’s more helpful getting through it yourself than having always picking you up when you fall. That’s just my opinion though and from my own experiences. It’s more exciting to talk about afterwards. Or brag if you’re one of those. So put your plan together, and go after what you want and deserve!
