Who doesn’t’ want to love their life? In the age of social media, it’s easy for us to feel like our life isn’t great, but here’s a few tips to help you live a life you love.
Be a learner.
I believe you get stuck in life when you think you’ve got it all figured out or when you let someone else figure things out for you. Many people stop learning once they stop going to school. I can assure you that you will see more personal growth if you have a learners mindset instead of a “know-it-all” mindset. So, try to learn more in every aspect of your life. Learn more about your faith and others’ faith. Focus on learning more about growing in your career. Read and learn more about the city you live in or places you want to travel. Seek truth in all your endeavors.
Being fearless doesn’t mean that you’re never afraid; it means that you don’t live in it. You don’t let fear control you. You have to acknowledge your fears and deal with them. Try to figure out where the fear stems from and work from there. Are you afraid because someone else placed their fear on you? Is it from a past experience? Learning where our fear comes from can help us deal with it and overcome it. It’s ok to be afraid, just don’t make your decisions based on your fears alone.
We have to prepare for what we want in life. Don’t ever let yourself get too comfortable. Be ready for change. Allow yourself to step outside your comfort zone and be ready to embrace new experiences. Be ready for the moment your dreams come true.
Be your own boss.
Once upon a time, someone made up the rules we tend to follow in life. Earn a degree, then get more degrees. Get this kind of job and make this amount of money. Find a husband. Have children. Live in a nice house with a white picket fence.
While some rules are good, others will stifle us into living a life that someone else wants for us instead of what we want for ourselves. Don’t limit yourself based on society’s rules. Who made those rules anyway? Make your own rules. Be the boss of your life. Do what’s right for you.
Remember never to compare your journey with someone else’s. We all have our own lives and missions. Comparison is the thief of joy. You can’t do what you were meant to do on this earth if you’re too busy worrying about what everybody else has that you don’t. Be grateful for your purposeful life.
Comparison can also lead you to make unhealthy decisions. Just because all your friends are getting married, doesn’t mean you need to rush into one. Just because everyone else is buying new cars, doesn’t mean you need to. Trust that what you have is what you need and always give thanks for your portion.
In order to live a life you love, you have to live without limits. Don’t be afraid to challenge the norm. Don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zone and try new things. Always be willing to learn and grow. Take time reflect and be grateful for all you have.
