If You Can Master This, You Will Pretty Much Get Anything You Want in Life

It’s simple, but it’s not easy

There are so many rules that society expects you to follow but as you grow older, you realise that there are no rules. You just have to be a decent human being. That’s all. Spend time doing what you love, be nice to those around you and try not to take yourself too seriously.

It’s hard to have this mindset when you are young, though. And I get it, I’ve been there. I‘ve had people in my ear telling me I have to do certain things by a certain age. Build a career. Get married. Thrive in all areas of my life.

But what nobody told me is that I would be able to solve or even completely avoid 90% of my problems if I would focus on just one thing: my self-confidence. And that everything will fall into place if I respect and love myself.

Cheesy, I know. It’s true, though.

The less you like yourself, the more things you’ll want to change. Don’t get me wrong. Change is good. Change is fantastic. Improving yourself should always be a priority, but — and there’s a big, fat but here, you can’t beat yourself up until you get to your destination. Not only will it be a bumpy ride, but there is a also a huge probability that you’ll not even reach the destination because somewhere along the way your imposter syndrome or lack of confidence will pull you on the side and tell you to stop because you’re not good enough to keep going. ‘Where you goin’ so fast, mate? You don’t have what it takes’. So you turn around.

Sounds familiar? I bet it does.

Eventually you’ll get so used to that little voice inside your head that you don’t even realise that you self-sabotage.

It will stop you from building your dream career, from having meaningful relationships, and even from building a healthy daily routine.

All of this might sound harsh, but my intention isn’t to scare you. It’s to make you aware of how important it is to work on your self-perception. The sooner you realise that the way you view yourself is what’s going to make you or break you, the easier your life will be.

So what’s my point here?
