You want to be better. You want to “level up”. You want to improve. I get it. Since I’ve been a recovering-couch-potato for nearly 2 weeks, I’ve actually started to hear my thoughts – mhmm, apparently it’s possible.
For my fellow students, you’ve probably made a list of things you want to accomplish in the next 4 months before you go back to school. Come on, admit it. You’ve done it before, or just yesterday. haha.
Stick around and hear me out, yeah?
Stop searching and start creating.
Happiness isn’t found, it’s created. Tap into your creative side and see where that goes. If you can spend hours scrolling through your social media feeds thinking, Wow, outfits on point! The view’s amazing! I’ll travel there one day, too! These are all inspiring and motivating, sure. But you can’t “level up” by looking to get a step higher. Rather, take action and create opportunities to get you to the “next level”. Help yourself pave the path to be happy, not find happiness. Happiness is a state of being, not an endpoint.
Do something about it.
“Move”, it’s a verb. Aiming higher not only requires the desire to reach new heights, but action and follow through. I, for one as guilty of planning, visioning, and plateauing, but when I do get to work and do see how much work it actually takes to complete a project – accomplished! Go ahead. Do something that matters!
Reset. Try something new.
You learn something new every day (if you open yourself to learning). Cassey Hao from Blogilates says, “If you’re good at everything, life would be boring!” Got that bike you’ve wanted to test ride? Go! Got that book title you’ve been meaning to write. Go! Be fearless. Take chances. Do something you’ve always wanted to do.
