In life, there is only one direction, forward!
The time is running away, the days go by so quickly. And the worst thing about it, the older we get, the faster this process seems to go. But getting along with things in life, we have learned to adapt, to ignore, to blend out. We can’t stop the time, but we do not even think about stopping it. We take it as it comes. We accept our faith.
Progress. In life, we want to move on. Come on! We have goals to reach! But what we do not see is the nonsense in all of this. As a child, I wanted to be an adult. I wanted to drive around in cars. But the moment I was eighteen, well, I had another goal. Now I wanted to be an adult with an awesome car, a house, stuff like that. Life goes on, our goals change on the way.
Past generations always wanted their children to experience a better life quality than they had. And indeed, the economy made it possible. New technologies, better standards of living. The whole world progressed. The only question left, will we see this very same effect in the future? Will things go even better, or are we already driving down the hill?
Progress comes from within.
If you want to improve upon something, well, the stage is yours! And don’t tell me that you can’t! Because every single day you get up, not even the sky is the limit. We can all improve. We can move on and proceed. The question is not if, but how? The mindset, your motivation, the reasons for doing what you do. Progress starts on the inside, in our heads. It is this idea, this vision, this dream. Pick whatever it is and think it through! Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Sure, you could write that down and check in 5 years where you are standing, but wouldn’t it be better to write down exactly what you want and reach exactly that? Not by accident of course, but out of a conscious doing!
Progress is possible, everywhere, anytime! Life is a game. A game that has some rules, sure! But some of them we can bend! People live in this world believing the stories they are getting told. The problem? Most of the time, there is no such a thing. There are no limitations, borders, or everything else we have in mind. Everything is possible if you want, but do you want?
We can reach all of our goals! We can succeed in everything that we touch! But we need to be ready for it! Success is not a coincidence! At least not all the time! Everything in life is a process. A process that will lead us, step by step, towards our goals. Do not just look at the big picture! Ask yourself what you can do today in order to move on. Ask yourself what you can do now, right here in this very moment! It is the small things that add to another and build something amazing!
See you next time!
