Not all problems are equal. There are many problems that if we invested more time & money in solving would be of much greater benefit & value in our lives than those we & others sometimes fixate on fixing.
If you are struggling, remember: “This, too, shall pass”. But also know that whatever we are struggling with passes faster when we focus on the steps we can take to change our lives for the better, no matter how small those steps may be. Because over time, even small steps can carry us a great distance.
Always, always, always focus on what you CAN do.

For those struggling, remember, “ThisTooShallPass”. But it passes faster when we focus on the steps we can take to change our lives for the better, no matter how small those steps may be. Because over time, even little steps can carry us a great distance.
“Think positive.” No. Think intelligently. Just because “think positive” is a nice thing to say doesn’t mean it’s going to do you any good.
You can be the kindest, most positive person in the world, but unless you’re actively working towards a goal or fulfilling a greater purpose, you will likely find yourself drifting further & further from places you truly want to go. Without a strategy, “Think positive” is a meaningless catchphrase. In order to have any significant impact on your life, your positive thoughts must be accompanied by actions that push you in a direction you want to go.
While taking the path less traveled can be a very rewarding experience, it is not a walk in the park. Venturing along this path is an exploration of the unknown and an invitation to challenges that cannot be seen at the onset of your journey.
By its very nature, your unconventional journey will likely be one that many won’t understand. But remember, your life is yours to live as you choose. Although the risks are many and the challenges are numerous, so too are the rewards that await those who have the courage to venture off the beaten path.
Be honest with yourself. If you’re not leaving a trail of things you’ve done or tried to do in order to help yourself rise above whatever appears to be holding you back, then you’re likely more comfortable with the discomfort you live with than the discomfort needed to change.
Waiting to do things that require skills won’t make you better at those things. Only doing those things will. Stop waiting for the perfect time and wishing you were better and begin to get better from experience.
Want to write a book? Start writing. Gain a skill? Work at it today.
If you’re tired of all the artificial & superficial personalities with fake enthusiasm catering to your ego & sense of selfworth so they can get you to buy more shit you don’t need so you can finally be happy or successful, stop giving them your attention & business.
Never forget that 1 poor millionaire can now buy the “voices” of tens of thousands of bots who sound just like real people. And the socialproof created by these bots influence real people to act, propagate misinformation & vote. Imagine what a poor billionaire could do.
Artists writers & creators, resist the urge to seek instantgratification. What you unveil today is simply the foundation of all your future work. Likes are hollow. Focus on your skills. It often takes years before creations/creators deserving of recognition actually get it.
