Everything is bad for you, but someday everything will be fine? Don't lie to yourself

In life it always seems that a bright, bright and happy future awaits you. It will come very soon, you just need to finish school, university, change jobs, wait for a certain time or event. But a happy life will never come unless you do the following.

“The longer you wait, the more likely you are waiting in the wrong place” Elchin Safarli

All the time we expect changes, after which real life will begin, not the one that is now. It always seems that a bright life is about to begin, but you need to be patient a little more, suffer and wait. Familiar?

When you finish your studies, you find a better job, you meet someone, something happens, summer comes, you start a family, the situation changes, someone will help or get lucky in life. We are waiting for a certain moment or event, after which everything will be formed.

But that will never happen. Do not lie to yourself. A happy life will never come. You are one of the billions of people who suffer from delayed life syndrome. You live only in dreams of the future, not in the present, which you secretly hate.

In 90% of cases, the desired situation never happens. And if this happens, then it brings not at all what a person expects and wants. A person will spend his whole life with nothing, but there will be no fairy tale.

What to do if you have been waiting for something all your life?

  • Are you dissatisfied with your life today?
  • Confess to the presence of the postponed life syndrome, when you expect something that is not clear.
  • Realize that in real life you can not have a rehearsal, and you live right now.
  • Determine what exactly you are betting on and what exactly you are waiting for.
  • Why can't we act now? What's stopping you?
  • All your explanations for waiting are laziness and fear to act right now.
  • What exactly do you want to achieve in the future?
  • How much time are you willing to devote to achieving your dreams each day?
  • What can you do for your goals today? 2-5 actions.
  • What options, ways and possibilities are there to get closer to the dreams?
  • What's stopping you from taking action step by step starting today?
  • Make a list of 5-10 steps you will take today, tomorrow and this month.
  • Draw a detailed plan to achieve the goals in X steps and Y time.
  • Start living not in the energy saving mode, but in the maximum calculation at 100%.

Stop looking for reasons why you don't do anything for your dreams. A happy and bright life will never come if you just wait and hope.
