Your life is going to suck unless you turn it around

When it will get better? When you’ll stop being reactive and start being proactive.

We all have those few friends who keep complaining about their life all the time. At least, I have. Life isn’t fair to them; their work sucks, they don’t feel motivated to do anything, they feel like nothing is working out for them, they are failing over and over again. Don’t we all have moments like these?

Sorry to break the news to you, but mother nature didn’t design the life to be easy. She did quite the opposite.

Despite all the complaints we might have about life, we have it a little bit easier compared to hunters from the ice age. Don’t you think? So why your life isn’t working out quite like you’d wish?

Reality check: You are not a kid anymore

When we were kids, our problems seemed to disappear magically. It often felt as there are good fairies taking care of us. You aren’t entirely wrong. Those good fairies are called parents.

However, when you grow out of bedtime stories, life starts looking differently. The bad news is, life wasn’t designed to be a fairy-tale 24/7, 365 days a year. It can be pretty hard. It may seem that for some of us it sucks all the time. The question is why it doesn’t change? Whose fault is it? Why some people seem to have it easier than others?

They don’t. Okay, It’s only fair to admit that not all of us are born in perfect conditions. Let me tell you some people have to go through real shit.

If you are born in a war zone, a country suffering from poverty or lack of medication to cure simple diseases or injuries, well yeah, that sucks. This scenario might sound a bit extreme, but plausible. But how many of these people were able to become a change they wanted to see?

The one thing we have in common when we are born is our will. At the same time, it’s our will that distinguishes us from each other.

You decide if you’ll keep literally just floating through life that sucks or you choose to act upon it.

We all want to have it easy, don’t we?
