Do you know yourself?
Or do you rely on other people to define you?
If you want to get ahead in life, you need to start seeing other people’s opinions as a kind of infection.
The only way to achieve your goals in life is to avoid this infection.
You know what’s best for your life more than other people do.
Sure, there’s value in learning from other people and you should never be afraid to solicit advice from wise individuals.
But there’s absolutely no value in unsolicited opinions, especially when they’re negative.
There’s a difference between being informed and being weighed down by information.
There’s also a difference between someone pointing out a problem and a possible solution to the problem, and someone just pointing out the problem.
Start spending some time alone with yourself figuring out what YOU truly want.
Who do YOU really want to be?
Do you even know what your limits are?
Do you truly know what you’re capable of?
If not, it’s time to find out.
Here are 3 reasons why you need to go on a relationship fast starting now…
1. You don’t know who you are or what you want.
Most people have no idea who they are.
Instead of being an individual, these people have become a combination of the half dozen people they hang out with the most.
If you’re the kind of person who always needs to be around others, becoming a combination of others instead of a unique individual is unavoidable.
The more time you spend with others, the more like them you will become.
You can’t override your nervous system forever.
You can’t override the mirror neurons in your brain driving you to copy the motivations and behaviors of others.
The only way to truly figure out who you are is to spend some time alone with yourself.
Stop being so dependent on external relationships for comfort.
Yes, relationships are important, but so is a personal understanding of yourself.
Any halfwit can hang out with other people all day long and get lost in a soft blanket of other people’s opinions and feelings.
It takes a real man or woman to set aside time to be alone and then use that alone time productively.
Going on a relationship fast is the only way to figure out who you really are and what you really want.
When you do get time alone, start asking yourself the tough questions that most people avoid.
What are your real priorities in life?
If money was no object, what would your Perfect Day look like?
What do you want to achieve before you die?
What makes you genuinely happy?
Until you know the answers to these questions, you’re not an individual.
Instead, you’re just a composite of other people’s hopes and dreams.
2. You don’t know how much you can withstand.
You are stronger than you realize.
You are more mentally tough than you know.
Or, maybe not.
Maybe you’re weak and will crumble like a funnel cake when the going gets tough.
There’s only one way to find out.
Most people, especially today, are soft.
They spend the majority of their time drinking down lattes and gossiping with other average, bored, and often bitter people.
How can someone who lives like this ever truly know what they’re capable of?
How can they ever know what they can withstand?
Most importantly, how can they be okay dying without ever testing their limits?
The only way to find out the limits of what you can take and what you can dish out is to stop relying on other people for advice and comfort.
Learn to heed your own counsel.
Learn to comfort yourself.
Put yourself in a challenging situation, one where you have to either win on your own or go down fighting.
Start a personal project, one that depends entirely on you for its success.
Cut away whatever safety nets you’ve been relying on and take a risk.
Step away from the cozy herd and put yourself in unfamiliar territory.
Create a time-sensitive goal that you must achieve quickly or fail at embarrassingly.
Until you do this, you’ll never really know how much you’re capable of.
3. You don’t know how to rely on yourself.
You are responsible for your own problems.
Mommy and Daddy are not responsible.
Your negative friends are not responsible.
You are responsible.
Your entire life is your fault.
The problem is that you’ve let society convince you that your problems are other people’s problems.
You’ve fallen into the trap of thinking that everyone shares problems.
The human race is not some giant garbage disposal for you to throw your trash into.
You need to dispose of your own trash.
As harsh as it sounds, everything bad that’s ever happened to you is your responsibility.
Bad things happen for no reason.
Bad people do bad things.
These things are not your fault.
But how you handle them is.
Life is not what happens to you, it’s how you handle what happens to you.
Don’t agree with me?
It doesn’t matter.
Life will decide.
Sooner or later you’ll be faced with a situation where no one can help you but yourself.
You’ll face a health issue or some other severe loss and finally realize that all the time you spent chatting it up with your friends and gossiping with your coworkers should have been spent disciplining your mind.
You’ll realize that you should have spent at least a little time training yourself to be more self-reliant.
You have the power to determine your own quality of life.
You have the power to choose your internal state regardless of the external events you face, so start choosing a positive and action-oriented internal state.
