Have you ever said something like this outloud or even just thought it quietly to yourself? “If I can just get through __________, everything will be so much better.”
Or maybe it was… “If only I didn’t have to worry about money, I would be so much happier. I could do whatever I wanted with my life…”
Or maybe it was more like… “Well, of course _________ is successful, he/she has had a far less difficult path to travel than I have.”
Or maybe… Well, I could go on, but do I really need to?
Surely, you’ve looked at your own future (or someone else’s present) at one point or another and made an excuse as to why you are not where you want to be (happy/more successful/whatever) in this very moment. That you are living in. Right now.
Running a business can be difficult, being a mom can be stressful, having to work 40+ hours a week at a job that you hate sucks, BUT I have good news:
You can change it. You can make your life exactly what you want it to be.
BUT (yep, there’s a but) there is a catch: YOU have to do it.
Someone else is not standing in the corner waiting for you to tag them in so they can make your dreams come true.
Nope, it’s on your shoulders. So in order to get where you want to go, you might just have to work hard, stay dedicated, be passionate, and remain positive – even when you don’t want to, even when you don’t think you can.
Because the only zen you will find at the top of a mountain is the zen you bring up there yourself.
How will you bring zen to your mountain today?
