Who succeeds has a plan, who fails has an excuse? What Is Your Plan?
I see so many people feeling unhappy with their lives these days. And for me this feels so awkward. Because never in history we have ever had more luxury, more wealth, more free time, more health care, more more more… .
So I am puzzled why are so many having nervous breakdowns, midlife crisis’s, depressions,… ? How do you feel? Are you happy? Are you unhappy? If you are do you know what would make you happy? Would more money make you happy?
Is it about money?
I just finished watching a video by Gaur Gopal Das. He’s a personal coach, monk, lifestyle & motivational strategist, that is what his facebook page is saying anyway. You can find his fb page here Gaur Gopal Das Facebook.
I really like his speeches and I will take a quote of him to show what I mean. The poorest people in the world are those who only have money.
Many of us think that all their problems would be solved if they had more money. But the truth is that it is not true. Money is not that important. Does it really matter how much money you have in the bank if you feel your life is slipping away and you care about nothing anymore, feeling tired and worthless all day?
No it does not. It won’t change anything.
Is it in our mind?
Hmm, more likely. We used to have a more strict life. We worked from Monday till Saturday and on Sunday we went to church and had family dinners. The mayor, the priest and some other notables told us how to live our lives. family, friends and neighbours had social control over our lives and most people sticked to those rules. Some didn’t and they were the rebels, the free spirits that did their own thing. There was a plan, we didn’t make up the plan, we just executed it and it was OK for most people.
But in this century we have to make our own plans. And some of us can do that and some of us can’t. We have dreams but we not always seem to be able to live up to our dreams. And sometimes we don’t even know exactly what we want.
Start by making a plan, it doesn’t matter how old you are or how young you are. Make your plan for your future, what do you want for your life? Dream big, think big. And then make it happen, it’s your life.
And don’t listen to all the naysayers and negative people. Surround yourself with positive people. Negative people never achieve real happiness. They always have an excuse why something has not worked or why they gave up on something.
Our courses are made to help you achieve whatever you want to achieve so make a plan and follow up on it, keep it in your mind. Work towards your plan everyday.
I will share my plan with you: Live today, not yesterday (that is in the past), not tomorrow (that may never come), live today and enjoy every moment of it. The best day of your life should be today. And I want to keep my body and mind as healthy as possible and help others do the same.
It can be as simple as that it all depends on what you want. Make your own plan, your own ambitions, your own goals every person is different.
Don’t live without a plan or plan for an excuse!
