Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
If we could sit for a while on a white fluffy cloud and look at our life from a distance, removed from the hustle and bustle, we would have a chuckle at the absurdity of how we complicate it all.
Life is ridiculously simple when you boil it down. It is all a journey of being in one place and wanting to be in another.
For example, we are poor and want to be rich. We are lonely and want to be loved. We feel like a failure and want to be a raging success. And so on in a million different and more specific shades.
The trouble is that we have so many of these specific wants that we have such trouble deciding which ones are most important and so sometimes we confuse our whims with our deeper wants.
For example, you might want to be size 8 and yet also want to eat lots of calorie packed chocolate cake.
Or maybe you want to be rich and also want to avoid the discomfort involved in making lots of money.
Besides having trouble prioritising, we confuse ourselves with doubts as to whether we can achieve what we want.
For example, you might want a beautiful, loving Partner who adores you, but decide that men/women are all cheating, lying losers who aren’t worth the effort in getting to know. Or you may dream of being a professional Artist, but decide there’s no money in Art and you’re probably not good enough anyway.
As if this wasn’t bad enough we then start adding in layers of duty. Such as, I’d love to do that, but I’m a Mum with young kids and they need me now. Or I’d love to go for that senior position, but you have to be ruthless and immoral to do that.
Once you add in all these layers of complexity (and of course there are many, many more) is it any wonder we end up confused, demotivated and having forgotten what we really wanted in the first place?
I’ve spent the last three decades, investigating how we make ourselves stressed, depressed and confused and also how we can live more happily. Now I like to concentrate on helping people to cut through the mental and emotional clutter that confuses us and regain the clarity to simplify life and gives us the enthusiasm and excitement for the journey ahead that make life joyful.
