How to Wake Up and Really Live?

Today you are at the point that you deserved by your previous actions and thoughts. If you wait for the perfect moment, the best time, and the best situation, you may find yourself old, having wasted your entire life. How to wake up and start living?

“Life is not about waiting for the storm to end. Life is learning to dance in the rain." Vivian Green

Change is always for the better, and it starts when you decide to wake up from the lethargic sleep of laziness and pessimism. It's time to get out of your lazy slumber and start living for real. Big dreams await you.

How to wake up and take action?

• The only way to get something is to go and get it. No one will bring you your dream as a gift on a saucer with a blue border. • Dreams of comfort, tranquility and convenience bury all your dreams. People are more often stopped by the love of the comfort zone, and not by real difficulties and obstacles. • Even if you do the right things that you should, this does not mean that the chosen path is right. A lame man walking in the right direction will overtake a horseman who rides in the wrong direction. • Winners don't ask permission to beat the competition and win. Behind every victory lies a struggle for the best places.

• Every day we make small choices that have a big impact on the rest of our lives. Today's decisions affect our future. What are you doing today for your tomorrow? • Do you want to have something that you never had? So you have to do something that you have never done before. You can move from a dead point only when you resolutely go forward.

• Paying attention to the opinions and gossip of others is pointless. Do not let other people's opinions cut off your wings and limit your possibilities. • No one will give answers how you need to live and where to go. This is your path, and the answers must be found on your own. • Life changes and yesterday's dreams become nonsense. It's okay to change your focus, give up foolish dreams, and start building new goals. • You cannot avoid falling, defeat and difficulties. This is part of the path of the satellite, which meets fields, forests, ravines, deserts and mountains. Failure is only a temporary delay on the way to a dream.

• Most people worry about various trifles. Focus on what brings joy and do not pay attention to small troubles. • Flexibility is the key to continuous movement towards your dream. Everything static is non-competitive. Be smarter, wiser, smarter and more far-sighted.
