I know it may seem so unrealistic to talk with terms such as ‘’value’’ and ‘’content’’ about soul, but I have something in mind doing it. Every negative experience that you had and you didn’t let go of creates destructive habits that affect your spirit. These are like old stuff that no longer serve you or have any value. These negative experiences are the extra, unnecessary luggage that causes you troubles in the airport. But this time the troubles are way more and feel harder for you. Are almost constant fears, hesitation, doubts, anger, frustration and guilt being a part of you and ruling the actions you take. Where is the satisfaction of life then?
To feel the summer breeze, to enjoy the morning sun and feel free, you need to let go of the old baggage. I mean the emotional baggage that keeps you stuck and does not allow you to move forward in life. Cleaning a shelf in the kitchen, I realized I have been storing spices since 2001. Surprisingly now is 2016. The saddest fact is that many people preserve not only spices, but negative, destructive habits for 15 or more years. Many people spend their whole life in the same way even if they don’t like it. Change is POSSIBLE and can happen any moment – it depends on you!
Many people read self help books, attend seminars and look for ways to cope with their own challenging experiences and destructive habits. We all have them in different shapes and sizes. I think that in the above explained ways there is a lot of truth, but people rarely DO something about what they read or hear. They understand it and they think that’s enough. It’s NOT ENOUGH. Acting and repeating actions until the new habit becomes automatic is the only way to change. Sometimes it can take years for a person to create even a small change.
Feeling happy and being successful are results of taking actions - massive actions, doing what you are not ready to do, living out of your comfort zone and doing it for very long time. The winners in life are the people who ACT, not who think in the smartest manner. Knowing what to do and not doing it, does not create any change. Actions are powerful and they lead to more actions – this way change really takes place. I know acting is hard but living in the darkness is harder. So, make the bold choice to step up before you are ready and go after your goals and quests.
You will not only feel better about yourself and have more self respect, but you will move forward in life. The only thing that truly makes people happy is GROWTH. Progress is the only experience that develops us physically, mentally and spiritually. Moreover, when you are on a mission, you will definitely be more proactive, creative and stronger in comparison to just doing nothing and longing for nothing. Give your life a meaning that you want it to have and go after a goal that excites you personally.
