Ever wondered why industries such as cosmetic surgery, beauty, and dieting continuously grow without any sign of slowing down decade after decade?
There is not a single moment that we’re not told what to do, how to do it, how to look, how to feel, what to eat, and the list goes on and on.
In the movie A Few Good Men, Jack Nicholson said it perfectly; “you can’t handle the truth.” Sadly we live in a world where we want everything “now.” However, these “everything” that we seek are filled with emptiness and is of no value. While these cars, clothes, and money provide us with a false sense of fulfillment, it is nothing more than a temporary fix.
There’s a difference in loving money and loving what money can do. This is a fact that many seem to misunderstand. Truth is we seek approval from others when the only opinion that matters is that of our own and we allow our egos and greed to dictate the choices we make while ultimately becoming more asleep than awakened.
It’s not too late to live your purpose.
Start by making the next decision out of happiness (love) and not fear.
How much do you truly love yourself when to many, love from another person more times than not tends to be shown by tangible objects?
Understand that people will only treat you how you allow them to. Therefore, if you dislike the reflection of your observation of how you’re being loved, then you need to accept that reality and change from within instead of casting blame on someone/something other than yourself. For some living has becoming so far from the truth that baring the burden of this facade is easier than living our souls purpose: “happiness.”
Get out of your own way and focus on your own happiness. Everything else will fall in place. You have nothing to loose. Don’t believe me?
Try it for one day and don’t hesitate to repeat daily.
