“All you need is the plan, the road map, and the courage to press on to your destination.” ~ Earl Nightingale; American radio speaker, and self-help author.
“If you plan on being anything less than you are capable of being, you will probably be unhappy all the days of your life.” ~ Abraham Maslow; American pioneer psychologist and professor.
This physical life is a beautiful succession of still photographs, and to find yourself and really embrace life at its fullest you must live in the moment, enjoy each moment, allow your attention to be on each moment, whether pleasant or unpleasant situations, do not escape but be there; however, because our human spirit needs to be allowed by our humanity to have outlets, to express itself freely, we, as human beings, need to rule over our egoistical and lazy minds and develop talents and skills in which we feel the passion and freedom coursing through our veins.
To free yourself, your spirit, to embrace true and constant happiness in your life, you must have a plan or vision of what is most important for you, a goal which helps you wake up each morning happy to be alive and working towards something heartfelt and noble; but, opposite to this, you cannot live each moment just hoping for the best and allowing your mind and the situations surrounding you to lead you randomly forward, for only you are meant to create and rule in your own life–i.e., not your ego, not your family, not society, but you and only you.
If you are not waking up each morning and loving every second of your life, breathing in and watching yourself get better and better in the development of your skills and talents, then you will not be able to free your human spirit from the bondage of a lazy and stressful ego, thus you will not experience the true essence of happiness which starts with self-love.
This self-development is all about your internal state, this is not about your country, culture, or your current financial condition; therefore, you could live on the streets or inside a very humble abode, but there is always something to improve in yourself–kindness, a deeper emotional connection with yourself, the planning of a future through planning strategies for a business, working on writing stories to develop imagination, drawing, mastering a certain topic to publish a book, selling something you make, etc. etc.
The goal here is not fame or fortune, but it is to train your mind to move forward and to create something that you keep dear to your heart, because in this way you free your human spirit and let it soar to new experiences, to new heights.
Remind yourself of this every single day.
