After 8 long years, I was finally free from stress! I’m finally free of problems and I got all the energy I need to start creating the life I want.
I should be extremely excited and full of energy right? Nope.
Instead, my first thoughts were, “Now what?”
Turns out that when the problems left me, I also lose some of the drive that came with them.
Here’s the thing. Fire happens when you have nothing to lose anymore, and when you hit rock bottom, all you want to give your energy to is how to go back up.
But if you’re living a comfortable life, it’s so easy to stay complacent, and worse, it’s so tempting to settle, remain small and live a comfortable but empty life.
And this comfort is the reason why a lot of people stay where they are now. And hey, I’m not judging because, that’s totally okay. People have different values. We all have a choice to go after what we think is best for us. I’m not here to be preaching to anyone to go after big dreams when they don’t really want to. If this is you, you might want to skip this blog post because this might not be written for you. (Or you could also continue reading if you think you just need a little push).
But if you’re someone who wants to grow to their highest potential, live the purpose they are to do in this world, and experience the best life has to offer, but you’re just too comfortable to act on your dreams, then read on. Here are ways to keep the fire burning so you can have the motivation and drive to go after your big dreams even though you feel like you don’t have to.
Remind yourself of your goals, and the BIG WHY behind it.
I was feeling so complacent because I was focusing on the good things that are happening in my life – which is totally what’s ideal by the way. So, I kinda felt too comfortable and happy that I felt like I don’t have to do anything anymore.
But when I reminded myself what’s still available for me out there, and what impact I can make for the world that could help other people, that totally fired me up.
So I got my planner out where all my goals and vision is written, and reviewed the big reasons why I’m headed down this path.
It reminded myself that I wanna do this because I wanted to see more people living the life they always dreamed of. I want to share stories of my failures and fuck ups about my journey to tell people that it’s totally okay to be imperfect, and they’re not alone in this. I want to stop people from killing themselves because that would be a big loss to the world. I want to stop unhappiness, misery and suffering because I believe that no one deserves to live a life of misery (because I know what it’s like). I want to open limitless possibilities to those who are living impoverished lives the ways I can because I believe that everything is possible.
I also reminded myself of the what joy it would bring my personal life. I reminded myself of the places that I could go, the people in my life that will be impacted positively and who I can be in the process.
And reminding yourself of these things, will definitely fire you up. So ask yourself, what is your big why? Why does the world need you? How will you impact the world with your gifts?
Not yet clear on your why? Check out my program Project Bliss. I created and designed this course for people who are ready to go after a bigger and more fulfilling life but don’t know where to start. Check it out if you think that you need help in creating a clear roadmap towards your best life.
Surround yourself with people who are fire.
Vibes are contagious! If you wanna be driven, surround yourself with people who are so passionate to serve the world and fulfill their mission.
Remind yourself that you only get to live this life once, and the best to do it is to live it the best way possible.
I mean, life can be boring, empty and unfulfilling if you stopped growing. And I truly believe that everyone here on earth is designed to grow into their highest being. That’s why challenges happen – to help you learn lessons that will help you unlock a new level towards what you want your life to be.
I believe that the world is too big and we have so much power that we can access, and to limit ourselves to a box is such a waste of precious life. There is so much to do and so much to see. It would be awesome to allow ourselves to experience that.
Remind yourself that you are worthy of the best life.
And to continue with that point, I believe that the reason why most of us don’t access this power to go after our dreams is because of our belief that we are not worthy of the best.
We don’t believe that we deserve it, so we lower our standards. We gave ourselves limitations simply because we think that that’s all that we can be, do, and have.
If this is what’s stopping you, know that you are worthy of the best things in life, no matter what your current situation is. You are good enough, and you deserve whatever it is that you truly desire. You have permission to own your power to create a new reality for you.
Because people are dying to get what you have to offer.
We are created because we have gifts to offer to the world. You and I both know that. We might not be the best now, but we both know that we have something to give out there.
And when we don’t use these gifts, we will not improve, we’ll remain stagnant, and we take away these gifts from people who actually need them.
It’s true that not everyone is going to need you, but there will be a lot of people who are dying to experience what only YOU have to give. Are you really gonna take that opportunity away from them?
