The power to change your environment or situation so that you are able to do as you want without hinderance.
For the past few months, I’ve been trying to figure out what’s next?
Observing those in and around my life, I have great admiration for those who continue to take steps forward to create a life of what make them happy and successful. More importantly, not the way western society has depicted success but what they have defined for themselves.
It’s not who you are that holds you back, but it’s who you think you’re not.
There are times where we have to do what’s right for ourselves by walking away from people or situations, even if it’s with a heavy heart.
External expectations can be influential in the paths we take, for better or for worse. Mistakes naturally occur but as much as we should forgive others, it is just as important (if not more) to forgive ourselves.
Be fearless in your pursuit of happiness. Stare your challenges in the face, and seize the opportunities that are right for you.
Whether it’s teaching english in Vietnam, walking away from a relationship, volunteering at a non-profit in Peru, swinging on a shady rope in the Amazon or moving to NYC to fast-track your finance career; take the opportunities to become fearless so you can live a life that is limitless.
Life’s too short, live it up, your future self will thank you.
I’m a stubborn, emotionally-driven pain in the ass. Sure, I tend to make unwise decisions with a habit of believing in the tiny piece of good in a person or situation; even when consensus believes the cause is lost.
Honestly, f**k it.
Why not take a chance to do what you want to do?
Can you live with the regret of not trying? I can’t.
Who knows? Sometimes it takes the wrong decisions to lead you to the right place…
