Life is hard sometimes. It never seems like we have enough time in the day to accomplish all the tasks or plans that we have. A well deserved nap, work, Netflix, getting dinner with friends, there are so many things that can get in the way of your goals. The simple truth is you have to work for what you want in this life. You have to find a way to make time for your goals and for what you need to accomplish.
The saying “Life happens,” really makes sense when you start to add more moving parts to your life. You have to work to pay bills, you have to keep a social life to not go crazy and you have to get enough sleep to be able to perform during your days. It’s so much easier to spend your free time relaxing and doing things you enjoy. Consistently doing that is going to end up with you looking back five years later wondering why you haven’t accomplished anything you dreamed of.
You need to make time in your life to better yourself and your life. I don’t know anyone who is completely satisfied with everything they have. You may have everything you want in some aspects, but there are always things to improve on. I have friends who are wealthy, but unhappy with their bodies. I have friends who are in the best shape of their lives, but they’re working jobs they can’t stand. Maybe you’re making good money now but your credit is still destroyed from your past.
We all have goals and things we wish to accomplish with our lives. Most of us will never achieve those goals. It’s a bitter pill to swallow, but it’s the truth. Good things in life don’t come easy and it’s up to you to get what you want. Excuses are easy to make and sound good when you say them enough. At the end of the day, anything you don’t accomplish is your own fault. You have to go out and chase your dreams. Find the motivation you need to drive you to reach your goals. Make the plans that will help you get to where you want to go. Put the work in, day in and day out. Spend less time on the couch binge watching shows you’ve already seen and spend more time studying. Find out what it’ll take at work to get you that promotion you’ve been wanting.
We all need to work a little harder and be a little better and we’ll be able to be the people we want to be. Life is full of opportunities and there are plenty of resources to get everything you want. So let’s all strive to be a little bit every day and see what we can accomplish!
