Happiness is more likely to manifest itself…

 

Happiness is more likely to manifest itself in one’s life as a result of making a positive difference in other people’s lives than it is by solely seeking to benefit one’s own.

Imagine if making a difference was more valued than likes

ImagineIf more people stopped seeking a constant stream of likes & shares and instead started working for the far more significant & much more uncommon, “Thanks I really needed that today.”

Making a positive difference in 1 person’s life is far more fulfilling than 1k likes.

Maximize the things that add value

Lessons Learned from The Path Less Traveled by Zero Dean

Always prioritize & maximize the things that add value to your life & others lives while minimizing the things that don’t. This change in focus can lead to a far more meaningful & fulfilling life than simply drifting without a direction, purpose or priorities you’re proud of.

Understanding your life

You are not required to live your life so that other people understand it. Nor do you have to fully understand it yourself. Understanding one’s life isn’t instant. It takes time, reflection & personal growth. None of which someone else can give you. Your life is yours to live.

Mind readers & guess makers

Lessons Learned from The Path Less Traveled by Zero Dean

People will sometimes make assessments about you or your motivation. Remember, these assessments are nothing more than guesses. People don’t know your motivation or what you’re thinking. Only you do. You don’t have to entertain their judgement any more than you want to.

A sentence on a page

Lessons Learned from The Path Less Traveled by Zero Dean

If you’re not where you want to be in life, always remember that what you’re feeling is just a sentence on a page in an entire book that makes up the story of your life. And the general feel & outcome of your story is written with the actions you take on a daily basis.

People can be assholes

Lessons Learned from The Path Less Traveled by Zero Dean

Fact 1: People can be assholes.

Fact 2: You don’t have to let fact 1 deter you from going after what you want in life, make you feel inferior, or let it impact your life any more than you choose.

Assholes are unpleasant, but giving them power over your life is worse.

What does your sign say?

“Bitter” “Angry” “Happy” “Loving”… Everyone has a sign over their head. As you make your way through life, it’s important that this sign is congruent with how you see yourself. Or else what you get from the world will often be much different than what you actually want.
