You do what they told you.
You watch what they do and take the bait. Hook line and sinker.
You justify your shitty results because you did what they said.
You stumble around life as if someone stole your brain.
You gave up your power because you don’t believe your intuition.
And it is dying inside. It gave up on you listening to it anymore so it’s the quietest of whispers you can imagine.
While you let your negative thoughts and ego get in the way of living the life you really want to be living. That is if you even really know what you want to be doing. You act as if you don’t have permission to live the life of your dreams.
So days turn into months, that will turn into years.
The regret grows, as does the depression. You are waiting for someone to give you to magical key to open up the secret to life.
Only when you have finally had enough will you actually go after what you want.
You realize that all these soulless fuckers around you gave up years ago and it’s not as hard to succeed as you thought.
Sure, they make it sound like it is soooo hard. You know why it’s hard for them? Because they believe their own bullshit stories of victimhood.
They believe they are defined by their credentials. They believe their own lackluster hype. They are done growing.
They are cruising through life at 55 MPH. In the fast lane. While you’re behind them wondering why the fuck don’t they just move over already?
And why should they? They don’t know any better. They don’t have the slightest bit of self-awareness.
That’s when it hits you.
You are the one behind the wheel and can go where ever you really want to go, whenever you get the balls to do it. The constraints you thought were there were only there in your mind.
You’ve been stuck in the prison of your own mind for way too fucking long.
When you have really had enough is when you will get fed up. And that’s when you really start to take your power back.
The rest of the world? They have no fucking problem being a bunch of mindless slugs allowing others to think for them.
But you? You know they are dying a little bit every day and don’t even mind. And there is no way in hell you’re going out like them.
That fighting spirit you feel rising up? Stoke the flames, baby.
To hell with the ones who don’t get you. To hell with the ones who want to snuff out your flame. To hell with the ones who are content with the status quo.
Everything you need to kick ass is within you. There isn’t some secret road map to get you where you want to go.
So how do you get where you want to go? Simple. Think of this as a totally fun road trip where you get to decide the destination and who you take with you.
See where you are, decide where you want to go, then get on the road. You don’t need to know every stop along the way.
You can do this, I guarantee you.
