Why creating the perfect life for yourself is a process that can often take many years or even decades. Why finding joy in where you are in life is essential to make life bearable and exciting to live when you are pursuing dreams you are passionate about that will take a long time to manifest.
In this video coaching newsletter I discuss an email from a viewer who is building his dream business, but after losing his job due to downsizing, he had to move back in with his parents. Even though he’s struggling financially, he’s making progress and does not miss the 9 to 5 grind of working a job he can’t stand.
“Your thoughts and actions will shape your destiny. You can either choose to find value and happiness in your struggles or let your struggles define who you are and make yourself miserable. The amount of effort is the same. It’s simply a conscious choice. It’s easy to be happy and grateful when you realize your dreams and have the success you’ve always wanted. However, you can’t succeed without first going through your struggles and overcoming the obstacles that most certainly lie in your path. The average person never knows true success and happiness because they let their fears run their lives and inhibit them from taking the action they know they need to take. You’re going to end up somewhere in the future. Where you end up is a direct result of what you choose or choose not to do. Doesn’t it make sense to choose something to take action upon that’s emotionally compelling to strive for, rather than just to settle for a life of mediocrity and misery?” ~ Coach Corey Wayne
