I hope you clicked on this post cause of the word ‘Obsessions’ and not ‘How To Make Everyone Happy’.
If it was the latter – it’s How To Make
Everyone YOU Happy.
Lately I’ve had conversations with friends and acquaintances who are
trying about to make a positive change in their life, to better themselves, to better their craft, to better their career.
Such positive talks, such positive moves.
It takes courage to shout out loud that your UNhappy and that you want to make some moves that could potentially alter your path, wait, it may just even make you feel HAPPY. (Why would you wanna do such a thing – I mean – why should you be allowed to feel happy? That’s so wrong…) And yet it’s always clouded over by ‘But xx person said this’ or ‘xx person THINKS this’.
So right there, there’s a bi-polar moment. Something that’s meant to be an amazing move, something you should be congratulated on and really be savouring the moment about, is being taken AWAY from you..Because 9 times out of 10, the person who’s taking that away from you is not satisfied with their own moves and how their path is looking.
You gotta learn to not give a fuck and really follow through on what feels right for you.
I love this by Steve Jobs – And it’s my morning ritual (Not kidding either)
“I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.” Steve Jobs
Mix into the equation the question ‘Am I Happy’ – Everytime I say no, I ask myself WHAT’s going to make you happy and HOW do you make it happen?
Money aside, time aside, PEOPLE aside, what’s going to give you inner fulfilment and peace and make you feel content? Whatever that thing is, see it through. Make it happen, minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day. You gotta live, you can either sit around feeling shit about things or you can really self-help and make moves. Doesn’t matter how small or big the moves are, their moves in the right direction regardless!
We’re living in a society where everything is available on demand. We’re wired to thinking that everything is at your fingertips and that it’s INSTANTLY available. TV Shows make you think you can be a popstar overnight or a celebrity cause you have been in a reality show. There’s truth in it, everything you want is probably available. But you gotta take time with some things. Sounds cliche, but Rome wasn’t built in a day. Your dreams and that ‘want’ also may not be accomplished in a day. (Whaaaat your not doing x y and z over night?! why NOT – your failing) But make your journey worthwhile and LIVE. You owe it to yourself! If you got everything you wanted overnight, what would you then focus on, what would be your journey then?
It’s easier to do something for someone else, than it is for doing it for yourself. It’s also easy to point fingers at the same person or people when shit doesn’t work out. Do it for yourself, you’ll get out of it how much you put into it, whatever ‘it’ is.
On another note, I was on Instagram the other night. I’ve been researching men with beards for a photoshoot. No really – That’s the real reason… There’s SO many epic beards on that thing… I think my new obssession may be #beardsofinstagram – Check out user beardsofinstagram – They have a crazy beard challenge and everything!
Hope you guys and gals had a great day – Stay positive and make a change!
