Three Key Points:
We are the creators of our reality. Since we use our beliefs and ego to look at the circumstances in life, we develop a perception. If you want to understand people, you must understand yourself. Or if you want to love people, you must show love and compassion for yourself.
Often, we are so good at figuring out what we don’t want in life, it’s time to start finding what we do want in lieu of that. It’s also important that we find what we really want in life, and not what other want in our lives.
If you dream big, and imagine your life as if you just turned 18, what would it look like? Ask yourself, “is this what I thought life would be?” Add to it, change it, make it better, whatever. The point is, start from within and do something about it.
