Dreams are manifested into reality in two words: Taking Action.
The person who you are today is whole. The person who you are today has a strong vision for herself. The person who you are today learns not in theory but in reality which is The Process. The person who you are today is growing for her own self.
Life is not simply full of learning materials but rather full of learning experiences if you have the guts to take action. The reason you may have been consuming so much self-help information by watching YouTube video after YouTube video. Scrolling through Instagram, Facebook or Twitter looking at motivational quote after motivational quote. Reading through new information after new information is simply because you’re interested in becoming a better version of yourself and there’s nothing fundamentally wrong about wanting to achieve a life filled with excellence. There’s nothing wrong with buying self-help books or enrolling in online courses from motivational gurus. I’m just saying that there needs to be a limit to the time you spend learning new content after new content.
Self-help is good, there’s no doubt about that but always keep in mind that consuming self-help without taking the right action is simply mental masturbation.
I think there may be people out there who are thinking that knowledge is power, but I have an unpopular opinion which is this: Applied knowledge is power.
The more you take action, the more it gets natural. Your passion simply becomes your passion. It becomes gorgeous and fun. Sometimes action will feel like work, and that’s okay. Welcome to the human experience. The resistance you feel to get out of bed, answer an important email, or make some calls is natural and simply okay because it gives you the opportunity to beat that resistance that will make the courage that’s already inside you bloom.
You’re a flower, and too much rain will kill you. So take care of your mental health by being mindful of the amounts of information you feed your brain on a daily basis by creating a healthy balance between taking information and taking action, and that takes perseverance.
You just need a few books, a few videos, and a few words of wisdom to truly grow as you walk through the fields of massive actions and the sun, the birds, and the clouds will be beautiful there. So start.
Start with the wisdom that you already have within you. Take knowledge in 10-30% percent of your day and then apply it 70-90% of your day. Then get the results. Then see what actions make those results consistent. And if you’re kind enough, brave enough and human enough—share those results with the world.
You are never too old to do something great. Whether you are 24, 36 or 67 it’s never too late to live a life that you’re proud of. It’s never too late to start over to be what you might have been. It’s never too late to wake up one day and make a conscious decision to change and to be whoever you want to be and the perfect time to be that better person you’re capable of being is in the here and now.
Today focus on what could be instead of what could’ve been. Today focus on this words and know deep inside your heart that it’s never too late to do things differently if you weren’t happy with the person you were yesterday.
Remember: As long as you are breathing—it is never too late.
It’s never too late to follow your dreams.
Shoot for the stars. It’s never too late to believe in yourself. It’s never too late to be a musician or a poet or whatever it is you want to do. It’s never too late to change the road you’re on. It’s never too late to create your own path to success. People may think you’re crazy but always bear in mind that the greatest people in history have always been misunderstood.
It’s never too late to follow your curiosity.
Learning new things changes your brain. Reading for at least half an hour a day will help you become wiser thus making you adapt to making better choices so you don’t stay stuck for too long. Idleness is the killer for your thirst for knowledge. It’s never too late exert effort for your growth.
It’s never too late to follow your love for yourself.
Live a life filled with adventure. Be a child again and be happy without reason. Love as though you’ve never been wounded. Let go of expectation and just go with the flow as you start a new chapter. Express what you truly feel for the people you love like it’s the last time for you never know when’s the last time. Stay strong and most importantly—stay alive. For it’s never too late to live your life in a way you never could’ve imagined it and leave nothing behind.
There will always be new books, new music, new films, new tv series that will inspire and understand your soul and make your state of being so much more bearable again. You’ve looked so very deeply into your life, and you need art to save you from your own emotions.
