Don’t Live Your Parents Life

Don't Live Your Parents Life

Who’s life are you living? Who’s life have you fell into? Are you living your fathers or mothers dreams? No one tells us growing up that we have a choice and we don’t have to follow the set path that has been laid out in front of us. Let me be the first to tell you, you do have a choice in how you want to live your life, and it is all up to you how you live.

Your parents will direct you to follow a certain path that they see best will help you succeed based on monetary success, but not on living an authentic life to who you want to be. Many people are living out their parent’s dreams of what they wanted to accomplish but never had the courage to do or never made an effort to because they were too busy making excuses. It is wise to listen to your parent’s advice attentively, but do not make the mistake of living your life based on how someone else thinks your life should be because they will limit your life most probably, as most people have limited vision and some parents tend to impose their limitations upon their children which confine’s their mind and ultimately their life.

Take the best advice from your parents, but always be true to yourself and who you want to be. Never let anyone dictate how your life should be. That will be a terrible mistake if you live your life based on how someone else wants you to live it, in a limited fashion, in an average state, and resigning yourself to mediocrity.

Many parents do not know the power that their words can have upon their children, they tell them to take the safe route, and the one that the majority take in living a so-called normal life. Parents have a responsibility to instill within their children the confidence, belief, hunger, desire, courage, fearlessness, and drive to make their dreams a reality. Too many people are living like cowards, never doing what they truly want to do in life because they are afraid of the outcome. Let me tell you something, if you don’t try you are a failure, there is nothing wrong in trying and failing, even in great attempts it is glorious to fail. Are you going to be one of those people who never takes a chance on themselves because you were too busy engaging in meaningless activities that confined your life to mediocrity.

The life that you are living, is this the life that you want to live for the next 20 years? Do you hear a resounding no from the billions of people living the 9-5 life. Who wants to live the 9-5 slave life that our parents encourage us to pursue, not aware that we are capable of accomplishing more. You have a duty upon yourself to do more with your life, too many people settle for nothing, people who have an opportunity to make something of themselves don’t take the chance they have, they just do the same things the unsuccessful people do and then they wonder why they are broke and struggling, living paycheck to paycheck confined to an average existence and living in a state of delusional conformity.

Forget the limits that your parents tell you about, there are no damn limits out here to those who set no limits on their life. Get up and create the life of your dreams. Stop betraying yourself and awaken to your true potential so that you can live with a sense of integrity based upon your deepest beliefs of how you want your life to be. The majority did not plan their life out from an early age so they just accept the life that they have stumbled into. Do not live someone else’s life, it is a crime against yourself. So let these words inspire within you the belief that you have what it takes to take your life to the heights of greatness, you are born with unique gifts and talents with which can make the world a better place. Greatness is something that resides within each and every one of us, so bring forth your greatness and live life to the limits and live it own your terms.

“You time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.”

Action Makes All The Difference



Action Makes All The Difference

The difference between successful people and unsuccessful people is action, action is what makes all the difference, action is what takes you from where you are to where you want to go, action is what helps you to make progress, action is what teaches you what not to do, as the more action you take the more you can learn by the results you get. Sometimes you will win, sometimes you will learn.

Look at your own life, and those around you, who are the ones who are making positive strides in the right direction, are they the ones who sit around doing nothing but being mediocre? Or the ones who choose to take action because they know that the future can be better than the present? With belief, hunger, sacrifice, and daily action they know that they can make their dreams a reality, they know that they will achieve their goals because they will do whatever it takes.

Develop the attitude of ‘Whatever It Takes’ within you, within you is where the battle is taking place, rise up inside of yourself and instill within you the bulletproof confidence that you have what it takes and you will be successful.

Daily consistent action is the key, allocate time for your dreams daily, for the grind, and for success. Schedule in the activities into your life that will compound and take it to a new level in the near future. However, if you sit around being like everyone else then life will just deteriorate into making a living, but you’re not like that, that is why you are here to step up your game to a new level.

Let your grind be a reflection of your hunger to achieve your dreams, it’s possible, if others have done it so can you. So can you live life on your terms, so can you make millions, so can you make a positive difference in the world, so can you go from where you are to where you want to be, and so can you become the person you need to be to attain success.

The development of yourself to be an action taker, that is what will make the major difference if you succeed in your endeavors or you remain confined to the life of conformity. Become an action orientated individual, whatever aspect in your life it may be, take action to make progress. Whether it may be spirituality, health, family, wealth, or enjoyment. Focus on the major areas of your life that will make the major difference to your life.

Get one day of action aligned to your goals right, and then repeat that day for 7 days, and then a month, and then the year, while making the strategic adjustments to your actions where necessary, try this method to see how it will positively impact your life.

The road that is rough is the one that leads to the greatest heights, success takes sacrifice, hard work, and daily action. You will never make any progress sitting around dreaming, dreaming is great, but action is the best cure to mediocrity.

It does not matter where you are from, what you don’t have, what you didn’t do, the mistakes you made, the regrets you have, the money you don’t have, where you are now, and who you are now, you can develop yourself to a higher standard, you can learn, you can grow, you can do anything you want to do, if you want it bad enough you will make it happen. It is never too late to be what you might have been, today is a new day, and you can start again.

Get clear on your goals, schedule your days, and take action to make your dreams a reality. Let the next 6 months be different, take the action that you really want to take every single day. One year from now, where are you going to be? Will you have developed yourself to a higher standard? And will you be closer to living life on your terms? Or will you be engrossed deeper in the mediocre life?

The choice is yours, we are all self-made, no one us forcing us to remain enslaved in someone else’s dream, we are our own jailers, and we confine ourselves with our daily actions, mediocrity is comforting but it is fatal, success requires grit but it is rewarding, the rewards of success outweigh the instant gratification of mediocrity.

Talking about what you want is great but at the end of the day, your actions truly highlight what your priorities are. It is easy to just cower away but we must go confidently in the direction of our fears as that is how we develop ourselves to a higher standard.

Separate yourself from the lazy people and take action. Excuses do not cut it in this game, excuses are for losers, winners take action. Take action and be the winner that you know you can be.

Be Motivated By The Fear Of Being Average



Be Motivated By The Fear Of Being Average

Average, the great lie that has the masses confined to a life of mediocrity and conformity. Living like slaves, their minds confined to a prison of their own making, and too afraid to step out of the bubble of the comfort zone to chase their dreams. Being single-minded on your major goal is what will help you take your life to a new level. You have to focus on the goal with intense clarity and purpose.

The normal way of life is total garbage, the masses have just accepted the life of self-betrayal. The lack of awareness is severe, become aware that you can design your life, awaken your mind so that you can live it at a different level. Do not just settle for this mediocre life, take action to truly awaken, action is what helps you awaken, break out of the hypnosis of cowardice, you do have a choice in how you choose to live. It is up to you.

Be motivated by the fear of being average. Do you want to be like the masses? Do you want to live a lie forever? Do you want to be confined to someone else’s life? Do you want to be a coward? Do you want to be a slave? Do you want to remain asleep to your greatness? Do you not want to take action and see who you can truly become? And do you not want to see how far you can truly go if you go all in and do whatever it takes?

If others have gone from the depths of despair to a life of prosperity so can you. Learn, grow, take action, grind every single day, put in the work, be ambitious, have the desire burning within you for a better life lived on a higher level.

If you do what the majority of people are doing where are you going to be five years from now? Don’t be afraid to be who you want to be and do what you want to do. Get rid of the BS from your life, stop wasting time with people who have no ambition and stop engaging in mediocre daily habits, you have to get serious about success if you want to become successful.

Many people want to live a different life but their actions reflect otherwise, most people are liars, talk is cheap. Let your actions be a true reflection of your ambition. You have the chance to live life differently, if you really want this entrepreneur life, work for it, hard work and dedication is what elevates you above the crowd. The extra mile is never crowded. Be different, be you, be hungry, and be motivated by the fear of being like everyone else.

The time to act on what you want is now, use what you have to get started on your dreams. Take action, write down your goals, make the plans, and set your deadlines. Then identify your ‘major definite purpose’, the one goal which if you accomplish will impact your entire life drastically. Focus and fail fast so that you can see what to do right. If you don’t take action you will never see how far you can go. Do nothing and you will be average, guaranteed.

“The road that is rough is the one that leads to the greatest heights.”

The Challenge To Be More Than Average



This sense of conformity is a lie which has been sold to the majority, the 9-5 life is not a truly fulfilling way of living, it is just a means of surviving, the majority of people are not living to their highest ideal, they are just working to pay their bills and get by in life. The challenge to be more than average is what should drive the majority, but it is just a way of living that a minority have the courage to pursue, a truly successful life is one in which you are living life in a way that is aligned to your values of who you are. Are you living life on your terms, the answer is most probably no, the majority of people did not plan their life so they just settle for the life that they have fell into, the famous quote states that ‘if you fail to plan, you plan to fail’, you are most probably living a mediocre life as the majority do, but don’t be disheartened, you can create the life of your dreams one step at a time, one challenge at a time, one goal at a time, and one year at a time. Start today to create the life that you want to live, and one year from now you will be at a different place than most.

Life planning is not something which is taught in schools, it doesn’t seem to carry much importance, but it is vital that you plan out your life. Do you have a plan of what you want to do?

People make plans for what they want to do for their holidays, but they don’t seem to make plans for their life, is that not strange that the majority just ignore that fact that they don’t have any major plans for their life. Doesn’t it seem strange that we make plans for seven days, but don’t have any idea what we want to do for seventy years, it is strange. Make plans for your life or life will make plans for you, and those plans will not involve the pursuit of greatness or a meaningful life filled with accomplishment.

What areas do you need to make a plan for, your life work, your financial freedom, your time, your family life, your dreams, your goals, and your aspirations. Why do people just leave their future in the hands of others, why do people just let others decide how to live their life. Why do you not make your life a matter of importance. You must have a plan of what you want to do with your life, or it will just unfold in whatever way, make plans for all aspects of your life that will result in the betterment of your life and take it to greater heights.

Why do you not have a plan for your life, do you want to just be a failure. Make a plan of what you want from life and stick to it with persistence. People want to do more but they never start doing anything about it, before you build a house you make a plan, you have a blueprint, you have a design, you have a grandiose plan, what is your grandiose plan for your life, nothing right, just a life of mediocrity, a life of no meaning, you are here to be your best self, so do you just resign yourself to mediocrity. Each person has the capability to impact the world in a positive way. Don’t just confine yourself to where you are, aim for greater heights in life and dare to live the life of your dreams. You can do more, you can do more, believe me when I say this, you are more powerful than you know. You are the CEO of your life, so start living with a sense of purpose and drive, and focus on success so that you can live a life of greatness.
