Your upbringing determines your ways of life. You unconsciously start imitating others around you in an attempt to be like them or to get an acceptance. It is an altogether different thing whether the behavior pattern you learn has a conscious effort behind its establishment or not. To your amazement, the way you chose to live has no relevance with your acceptance from all others. You can feel liberated again once you take the charge in your own hands:
Chose to make your own decisions
You have countless number of TV channels, which keep feeding your brain with different ideas and thoughts. You hardly find any need to make up your own mind since the advertisements serve the purpose for you. It takes away the ability to make wise decisions and you get dependent upon media eventually. Right from shopping to choosing a career, you need guidance and support of media or social networking. One must start making logical decisions based on his/her interests.
Chose to live life your way
You cannot afford to live life the way others want you to live since life is too short to carry out orders. Live it the way you want to live. Only those people who are running away from their own lives make a judgment on you. How could they solve your problems when they could not solve their own? Don’t let anyone bring you down with a fear of making a mistake. Do things that make you feel alive and give you immense happiness.
Bring a routine in your life
Day by day, you get closer to success and when you look back, things seem very different. Your day-to-day efforts have the power to change your tomorrow. Make time to recall your dreams and put in your best efforts to reach your goals. It is only a matter of time; the harder you try the easier it gets to attain success. Do not waste a single day, single minute even a single moment of your life.
Learn to shift your viewpoint
Negativity in any form is harmful to you. It is just like instead of approaching a situation you start believing in someone else’s interpretations. You approach depends upon this interpretation which is mostly negative. Positivity is a choice and you have the freedom to choose your happiness.
The search for perfection is never-ending
You are not perfect; you can never be and no else ever could be. Give your best and do not seek perfection in life. It is the fear of perfection that keeps you from being creative and unique in life. Learn to accept your true self, which is not perfect and can never be so. It is useless to highlight the imperfections of others in an attempt to show them down.
Don’t be hard on yourself
It is important that you do not take yourself for granted. Give yourself a well deserved break from the worries of the world. You are above all your achievements, regrets, sorrows and insecurities. Keeping yourself focused does not mean you can’t enjoy the beauty of each moment that pass by you. Live, laugh, love and never forget to appreciate the ecstasy of life.
Don’t hold on to your past
Do not let your past overpower your present and future. It is all here and now. Let go off all the regrets and start all over. You can never change your past let alone turning back time. You have the liberty to shed tears over your past so that you can move on in life. Learn to look ahead in life and leave no space for sorrows. You may have no control over your past but the future is in your control.
