In order to succeed we must first believe we can.
How To Love The Life You Live
We’re not all perfect and its easy to get wrapped up and get down on our ourselves because of our flaws. Today I want to tell you how to love the life you live. No matter where you are right now. No matter how bad you think you have it. I am going to convince you that you should love everything about your life right now.
The First Question You Should Ask Yourself
If you really believe you hate your life then I urge you to ask yourself this question.
Do I really hate my life? Or just an aspect of my life?
I can almost guarantee that you don’t hate your whole life. You can certainly find something in your life that you love. I bet you have everything going for you except for that one thing.
As humans we naturally focus on the negative and its hard to realize how good we may have it. I want you to realize what aspect of your life you don’t like and then zoom your entire life out and put it into context.
The fact that you are reading this page from who knows where tells me that you have a lot going for you. A lot of things that people would kill to have.
Instead of putting a magnifying glass over your flaws – acknowledge the flaws but realize that overall, you life probably isn’t that bad.
The Second Question You Should Ask Yourself
Once you realize that its not your life you hate but instead an aspect. I want you to ask yourself another question.
Can I change it?
If you can change it that’s great! I’m all for changing it and improving your life in general. That’s what i’m here for. But if you can’t you need to decide to accept it as apart of yourself and move on. The way to do this is by simply shifting your focus away from this aspect of your life because you have a ton of others things that are awesome about your life.
This could take time but i’m sure years down the road you will laugh at how silly you were about worrying about that stupid flaw that you couldn’t even change.
Love Yourself First
No matter who you are or where you’ve come from in order to have a better outlook on your life you have to love yourself first. I want you to love everything about yourself even your flaws. Your flaws are what make you, you. I also want you to love the flaws that you have no control over – such as your birth marks, your physical appearance and even your disabilities.
This isn’t easy I know, but even if you have imperfections you can always be happy with who you are; it will just take a little work. This work I talk about is altering the way you think about yourself. This takes work because it won’t happen after you read this article. If you really don’t like yourself – or even hate yourself your going to need to prove to your brain that you are your own worst critic. This will take a lot of overcoming of fear, re-framing and leaving your comfort zone.
That’s the first lesson here. You are your own worst critic. People don’t judge you as much as you judge yourself. Most of the reasons we criticize ourselves is because we compare ourselves to others and set the standard based on other people.
Your standards for yourself should not be based on other people – you have certain characteristics that allow you to excel at some things and not excel at others. So just because somebody else achieved something which you failed to achieve does not make you any less of a man or woman.
Even if your whole life was nothing but failures love that to. Love it because in this life we can go in any direction we want. Even if you have failed in the past does not mean you will fail in the future. In fact, the more you fail the more you learn and the more your grow.
So love every aspect of yourself even your flaws. I want you to love your flaws but also overcome them because overcoming these challenges is what sets us apart from everybody else. It’s what makes us interesting. Love who you are today but become even more awesome.
This mindset right here – that you can change your life and drive it wherever you want is how you love the life you live. Wherever you are in life now you are in an era of time where you can change it. Nothing is set in stone.
Have a great day!
