I wish you knew how many times I wrote the first line and deleted it. So, instead of getting stuck at the start I’m going to just let this be how I start todays blog.
Day 4, am I already out of ideas?
I want my content to have some variety and not be the same fluffy motivational stuff that you read, get pumped up for like five minutes until your’e distracted by some silly cat video and just like that you wasted a moment to act on the universe telling you that something is right. Maybe that’s what I will talk about today.
Knowing when something is right…
And just like that, I just wrote six lines of almost nothing and by just forcing myself to start I was able to connect the dots and find a topic of discussion for today.
So… I could take this many directions but for today’s discussion l will direct my tone toward the 5 signs that I feel are evident when you’re on the right path…
5. Your priorities become crystal clear.
You don’t question your daily routine because you know what the ultimate goal is and by acting on anything that doesn’t have direct value to your future is simply a waste of your time. Life begins to become simplified. With prioritizing your life, there’s no time for anything that is meaningless. Having crystal clear priorities isn’t getting drunk with your friends and talking about how you’re so motivated and ambitious. Celebratory conversation can wait for another time, you’re too busy aligning yourself with exactly what you deserve.
If you want to see where you will be 2, 3, 4 years from now, analyze what your priorities are today. When you find this out, you can piece together a picture as to what your life will look like. Good picture? Not so good?
Get your priorities in line. If you already do, you’re on the right path, don’t lose faith in the process.
4. Lose friends, gain more.
What!? Lose friends?
Yep. When you’re on the right path you will begin to lose some friends, a lot actually. Although true, you may lose friends, you will gain so much more. The hard reality is that the majority of people will not reach their big ambitions because they are dragging around their loser friends that only want to hold them back. I’m sorry. I said it.
Mike who has been your friend since you were 5 has no business being in your life when you’re 25 simply because you have known him your whole life. If Mike is a loser, accept it, accept him, but distant yourself. You don’t have to have “just cause,” relationships anymore.
“Why are you really friends with him if he/she is really just dead weight?”
“Well… Just cause. Just cause I have known him/her my whole life.”
That needs to stop. Boycott Just Cause Relationships. You will gain so much more.
3. You begin to hear the dogs barking.
I have always loved the saying… “Dogs don’t bark at parked cars.”
People, including your friends AND family will begin to poll in on their thoughts and opinions about the direction your life is headed. Sometimes these barks aren’t very loud. The people in your life may carry a passive tone as if they want you to win but secretly don’t want to see you succeed. Listen closely to the words they speak, they may have underlying connotations. It is your duty as a conscious individual to become aware of these relationships.
On the other side, the barks are really loud! When you’re completely in line with your desires and work continually each and every day to manifest such visions, numbers 4 & 5 explains it. You’re selfish. So fucking what. If people start calling you selfish because you’re spending too much time chasing a dream of yours, you first should consider the source, then, consider keeping them around.
If these people aren’t your friends or family, then you know what I say about the barks of stray dogs?
That’s all I’m writing today. Tomorrow maybe I close out with 2 & 1. Maybe, I write on something entirely different. Who really knows... just enjoy the ride :)
